water inlet started to leak

It took longer to get the part than it took to repair the water inlet. The help from the staff was very responsible and the repair direction off of the net very clear and understandable. I order the wrong part and was offered assistance and directed to the correct part than there were no issues but clear sailing.

Ice Maker Stopped Making Ice

When the Ice Maker stopped, I called a repair guy. He wanted almost $500.00 to do the job. I thanked him and paid the $75.00 fee for coming out and got on PartSelect.com to look at what he said was wrong. I ordered the parts -- they came amazingly quickly -- and looked at the videos. The hardest part was that the water valve was a complete replacement and it took a little while to figure out the changes (the old one had nuts and threads; it was completely different). In fact I almost sent it back -- it looked like the wrong part. Once I got going (after chatting with Janet in customer service -- she was awesome!), it took just about two hours to do the whole job. It works great now. My wife even thanked me -- that rarely happens!

Super simple repair, as it takes only a direct replacement of the valve. Removing and replacong the sdrews on the access cover took the majority of the repair time. Two screws retain the valve, and two electrical connections are very simple and easily reached. I would recoment using good sharp side cutters instaed of a knife to cut the three water lines.

Unpluged the refrigerator. Removed the cover on the control unit by inserting a screw driver under the metal clips. Removed the three screws frrom the front of the control unit. Pulled toward the back of the refrigerator on the metal loop which turns the icemaker on and off and it came loose where it goes into the control unit. Wiggled the unit and it came free. place the new unit in approximately the right position. Reached into the icemaker and moved the ice eject leavers so the shaft would enter the control unit with the flat side of the ejector in the right position. Gently pushed the control unit into its place and aligned the screw holes. Replaced the three screws. Inserted the wire shut off loop into the hole on the back of the control unit housing. Pluged in the electric. The ice maker worked.

I watched the video so I had an idea of what to do. It was pretty straightforward. Turn off the water, take out the screws, line everything up, replace the part. It went smoothly and the icemaker is working again. :)

Extremely simple especially after watching the video. Makes me think about why I did not attempt my own appliance repairs in the past. Big time savings! Thanks. P. S. excellent delivery service from Parts Select.

First of all, I am a female. So anyone can do this.I simple watched your video. Made the repair very simple. I was surprised that it really worked. I couldn't understand that if the door would still eject ice, why it wouldn't make the ice. It's the same motor. Anyway, It worked and I thank you very much. Very satisfied.

Stopped making ice

I have a side-by-side fridge/freezer, so taking out the icemaker is a bit more tricky than the video shows. I just unscrewed a nut in the back right of the mechanism (this nut is holding the icemaker in place as well as the plug cover). Once that was off it slid out pretty easy. Because the freezer is so narrow, it's a bit difficult to get it back in, but all told the repair took me about 20 minutes. Replacing this part fixed the icemaker immediately and we're so glad to have our on demand ice back! Ladies, don't be afraid of a little appliance repair!
