Refrigerator Door would not close on its own

Set out an area large enough to lay the door down once I took it off the refrigerator. Took off the top screws and hinge. Had my 12 year old so help me with the door and hand me all the tools so I could quickly change out the parts and not leave the Refrigerator open for too long. I think from the moment we took the door off to the moment it was back on was probably about 5-6 minutes tops. That is how easy this was. All the parts fit and thank you to PartSelect and it great website that advised me of the second part that went with the first if not I would never have known. Thanks again!!

Verified that the sensors were working. After removing the Ice maker assembly from the sliding track, I found that the indexed drive wheel on the motor had broken off from the shaft mounting. I ordered the Icemaker control and motor assembly from Partselect and swapped out the bad part. It only has three screws to remove and replace so it's fast and easy to fix.

Water was not filling the ice tray and the ice tray coating was comming off. After the service repairman wanted to charge me over 500.00 for just replacing the ice maker, it told him to take a hike. I bought the icemaker and the electronic controls, which controls when and how much water goes into the tray for less than 250.00 and it took me less than 15 minutes to replace.

Remove ice storage container from inside freezer. Remove philips screw from the coupler underneath ice storage container. Removed coupler and flat washer. Installed new plastic coupling and metal flat washers. Relaced original coupler and screw. Tighten screws very carefully. Installed ice storage container and filled it with fresh ice. Ice is now coming out when the level on the outside of the freezer door is pressed. Yeah...

The problem with our ice maker started when it stopped making ice. It was a hit or miss problem. One day it would make a bin full then couple days later none. One morning I noticed that there was water overflowing from the ice maker which froze inside the freezer. I ordered the maker and valve after watching the videos on this site. With those videos I was able to fix the problem in no time. Ice maker has been working properly for over a week now. My wife was ready to get a new fridge but I was stubborn and wanted to see if I could fix it. Thank you to partselect.com for the fast shipping and great instructional vids.

After googling for a parts supplier, PartSelect.com came up. The site was well done and had the Parts List conveniently available. I watched the associated video which was the highest quality "how-to" repair video I have seen. As it turns out, though, the icemaker does not have to be removed from the freezer unit. I removed the icemaker's shutoff lever, removed 3 screws, pulled the motor assy off, slid the new motor assy in place and re-installed 3 screws. Reinstalled the shutoff lever per the video and JOB DONE.

Ordered a new Ice Maker and replaced old one. The installation was a breeze except for the water recepticle on the right side of the Ice Maker. It was taller than the original and difficul to move the rubber water line into the new recepticle. Other than that. Problem solved. Been working great ever since.

This fridge is s ultraease 2 its 8 years old. Icemaker would'nt make ice. Its fairly easy all you do is take out the screws i recommend a power drill tho. Pop out the cover put the new motor in. I did'nt hear anyththing or see anything for a hour or two thought it did'nt work. Then i heard a clunk like ice falling into a bin. 3 hours later ice was falling frequently.

stopped making ice

the icemaker stopped making ice. The cubes would get jammed up and finally just stopped all together. Removal of the icemaker and installation of the new one was pretty easy. The only problem was getting the electrical plug undone from the old unit. We have a lot of calcium in our water and I guess it finally ate through and ice was forming under the unit. It was five years old so not bad really. All is good....quick delivery. Thanks.

The refrigerator would not defrost and would freeze up and no longer cool.

Turn off power to the frig. Remove the shelves and back brackets from the freezer, then with a 1/4" nut driver remove the nuts holding the rear metal panel in place. Once removed the defrost thermostat is right in front of you. You will have to clip the wires from the old t-stat because they are in a harness. Once clipped, strip the wires back, wire in the new t-stat, add wire nuts and put it all back together. Very easy job to do, works great. Thanks Parts Select, Mike.

Refrigerator door would not close properly

I removed the upper hinge cover and then the the hinge itself. Then lifted the door off the lower hinge peg. I placed a blanket on my pool table and positioned the door on it. The bottom screws were a little difficult to get the nutdriver seated so I used a quarter inch drive with socket to remove the screws. The replacement Closing Cam was quickly inserted and reassembled the hinge and lubricated with vaseline. Next I removed the Door Cam that was still on the peg on the refrigerator (it was completely worn flat). Quick work for this too. I tried to set the door back on the pivot hinge but eventually I needed another person to guide the door onto the peg. Reassembled the top hinge and voila, the door works just like new.
