Your web site was great. There was a short step by step video on how to remove and replace the ice door kit and tools required. The only additional tool I used was Blue Tape so I could stabilize the inner control panel out of way onto Door.If I need more appliance parts I now know where I am ordering from!!

I watched the video showing how to disassemble unit and it showed that there was a heat element inside the chute door under the foam seal that needed to be removed and placed in side the new chute door. I spent about 10-15 minutes trying to salvage the element but the adhesive used would not release and the part was rendered unusable. I called the help line and was told that their instructions on that kit said the heating element was no longer required. I finished putting the kit in and the unit works fine

Ice door would not close

Ice door would not close thus letting warm air into the freezer compartment. Thinking the spring was broken, I ordered the Ice Door Kit. When it arrived, I dismantled the dispenser and installed the new parts. After installing all the new parts, I found that my problem was the "Y" end of the bracket that holds the spring pin. It was cracked and would not hold the pin. The bracket seemed to be molded into the panel on the outside of the dispenser. To replace the bracket, I would have had to replace the entire outside panel. I decided to repair the bracket and glue the broken piece. I used cyanoacrylate(CA)super glue that I use in model making. Even though that seemed adequate, I decided to drill a small hole through the bracket, perpendicular to the crack, and install a small screw to strengthen the crack. I also applied a little CA to the screw for good measure. It held fast and so far so good!

Removal of escutcheon was easy. Replacing icedoor was fairly easy, working with wires in the way was a little distracting but simple. Be careful with microswitches and locating pins. Two of mine broke, had to replace bracket. Simple job again. Everything working fine now. No ice jam in chute. Using needlenose pliers to remove/insert pin is the best and easiest option.

Foam had torn off the flap door and the black thingy had broken.

Pulled off front. Detached wires without getting electrocuted. Marked them first so I'd know where they go. Pushed up the thing with wires so I could see the flap door. It had a heat thing in the flap which my replacement part didn't have, so I had to pull it out of the broken flap and insert in the new flap. Snapped flap door in place. Attached black thing loop to white thing. DIdn't use the spring or the white thing. Reattached wires and put on front piece. Everything now works. No more frost in the freezer!!!

Took two screwdrivers and inserted bottom of bezel pryed up and out gently. Removed (4) screws and unpluged (3) electronic plugs removing the circuit board. After you remove bezel & circuit board you have a chance to see what you are doing and get to the problem area with more ease. Remove old parts and reverse it putting the new parts. Process is very simple just pay attention to the order everything was removed. On my frig one of the plastic ears that hold the pin which holds the spring and door was broke. The piece I needed was no longer avaliable. I had to use a piece of the plastic from the old parts I removed, drilled a hole the size of the pin in it and glued it to the broken off ear. Put everything back together and I am pleased to say that everything works fine! So you might need to go a little MacGyver on it. All in all very simple fix.

Followed the lead of David from Chesterfield in prying off out cover, unplugging it and setting it aside. Unscrewed and pulled out next assemply, and taped it above work area to avoid having to unplug. The pried pulled out pin to right holding ice door hinge to remove old unit. (Notice which way the spring faces before removing!) Unplugged it. Ended up taking off push-dispenser handle (one screw on right) to get easier access. Then reinserted long pin being careful to have spring with two long tongs pointing down. Then put everything back together. USE ALL PARTS!

We heard the unit trying to start and then cutting off. It quit making ice. I pulled the unit out cleaned the coil and could feel the compressor was really hot. Unplugged it and let it cool down. After internet search plugged it in a heard it try to start then cut off. I read so many short stories on your site that described my problem I was convinced to purchase the part. You guys did a great job! I ordered it on Monday before noon it came the next day Fed X ground. Took me a liitle over 15 min. to put the part in. Plugged it in and it's worging great. We live in remote area and service call would be real expensive. I will be back here on next repair challenge. Thanks for your help. You guys offer a great service.

Unplug refrigerator. Take unit cover off with a screwdriver or nut driver. Looking at the left side of the compressor you will see the start device and run capacitor with a clip around it. Use the pliers to remove the clip. Take screwdriver pry gently between compressor and start device and take it off. Replace with new part. NOTE: THE CLIP DID NOT FIT THE NEW ONE. Put the unit cover back on. Plug it up.

Whirlpool Refrigerator not cooling

Besides the refrigerator not cooling, there was a click-buzz-click noise occurring at the rear of the refrigerator every 5-10 minutes. I started by looking up the issue online, I determined the issue was either the compressor or the starter device. I ended up ordering the replcement starter device from partselect.com. The replacement was very easy. All I had to do was pull off the rear cardboard panel, unplug the wire bundle to the starter device, and pull out the starter device.

I did exactly as the man on the video showed me to do. However, I was not sure what part was broke so I replace them both. Under $100 and my problem was fixed. This place had great shipping too: 2 days. They will be my first choice next time I have a problem. Oh and our local repair company would have been $125 for just a service call and they could get to it in a week.
