No prior experience in appliance repair. The majority of time was used in researching the problem and how to fix it. The Parts-Select website and the comments of prior customers made it easy to diagnose and repair. Unplugged the unit, took off the cardboard back cover, located the start device, using website comments and information pried it off, placed the new one, put cover back on, plugged in. By morning back to 40 degrees. Took apart the old one out of curiosity and it was completely burned-up on the inside.

This was a very easy repair, it took about 3 min and we were good to go. First, I removed the pan and slid the broken track out of the self-locking slots. If you're unsure as to push or pull the track out of the slot, take a peek at the slots before you start. This came right out. I got the new one, aligned the tabs with the slots, slid it in and made sure it "popped" in place. There was nothing complicated about it. One tip to get the old one out is to make sure you apply some pressure to the track as you are pulling or pushing it out of the self-locking slots. BTW I was able to get my parts in less than 48 hrs, std shipping! Awesome, and thanks!

These are the left & right slide rail tracks for the pull-out meat tray located just under one of the interior shelves. When removing or installing plastic parts you should always use a delicate touch, because plastic is brittle and can crack or break. To install these rails, I used a small screwdriver and a small rubber mallet to lightly tap the old ones off. The new ones I put the tabs in the holes and using the mallet & screwdriver, I lightly tapped into place until I heard a click-lock. So...... use a delicate but forceful approach. Good luck !!

I first watched the instructional video and from then on it was a simple repair. The Pan Slide Track had been broken, probably from excess weight in the drawer over the past 8 years. After removing the drawer and glass support per the video, I discovered that BOTH the tracks were broken! Fortunately, I had ordered two(2) tracks and was able to replace both in less than 30 minutes. In my experience of do-it-yourself repairs, this was by far the simplest repair do mainly because of the great step by step video.

Removed and replaced the Ice Auger Drive motor. I performed the motor removal and replacement as described in the instructions on your web site. The problem I had was with replacing the rubber seal on the bottom of the auger shaft. I had to remove the cardboard assembly (two screws) in order to get the seal back on the auger shaft. The smaller rubber washer and plastic spacer fell away from the auger shaft when I pulled the shaft out. I had to go back to your schematic and review the proper location of those two items before I did the reinstall. That info was not included in the web instructions. Overall, the web instructions were helpful with my repair. My dispenser now works great.

I removed the part and read the part number and ordered the motor. I received the motor three days later. It took about ten to fifteen minutes to replace the motor and another ten minutes to replace all the other parts. The motor was the answer. We have dispensed ice again.

On the inside of the freezer door, I removed the ice bin (not sure it was needed, but I did it) and then removed two screws holding the motor compartment cover (above the second from the bottom shelf in the door). The motor was then visible, and I removed 4 screws (one in each corner of the motor) holding the motor in place. Took the motor out, and put the new motor in place (had to align the auger so that the flat side of it would fit into the motor collar). Replaced the four screws holding the motor in place, and replace the cover with the two screws... done. worked perfectly in about 10 minutes.
