We watched the video on how to install the part. When the part arrived we were all set. The video was so informative that we knew exactly where to go to install and what tools to use. This was great and we have recommended this company to anyone who needs to do repair on their appliances without having to pay for a service call, parts and labor. It cost us approximately $42.00 which other wise would have been easily $200.00 for the GE repair person or another appliance repair person

Checked to make sure it wasn't a plumbing problem. Then made aide sure the filter wasn't plugged. Then went to Parts Direct's web site. According to their information, the most likely problem was the duel inlet water valve. I followed to video instructions provided on the web site...finished the job in less than 15 minutes...and solved the problem. I will certainly be using your service in the future!

Remove everything from the freezer. Suggest buying new rack holders when replacing the fan. I would suggest people who are not mechanical savvy to put drops of different colored nail polish on the screws and sensors so the know where to put them back. The job was quick and saved money from having to have someone else repair it.

Broke ice maker supply tube while moving fridge.

  • Customer: Richard from Boston KY
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Used nut driver to remove two screws at top of tube, and the three screws holding composite cover on back of fridge. Pulled out the upper portion of tube, pulled up on fitting and removed lower portion of tube. Put upper spout portion of new supply tube into position, replaced two screws, pushed lower portion of tube into locking fitting on supply valve solenoid. Replaced composite cover with three screws, and was done. Entire job took less than 5 minutes. It took longer for me to find my nut driver set, than it took to do the repair. I ordered the part online, and it was delivered to my door in a lightning fast 36 hours. Hopefully I won't ever need any more appliance parts, but with your easy to navigate website, fast shipping, and fair prices, you have won me over as a customer. I will refer you to friends because of your high speed, low drag, zero defects, excellent service. Thank you very much. Rich.

Replace hinge cam risers

  • Customer: Lawrence from Blacksburg VA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

Lessons from this website were excellent. Removal of the upper door hinge with small socket wrench is relatively easy. Remove the door and place on a workbench (I used the kitchen island.) Replacing the upper cam on the bottom of door is also quite simple. However, replacing the lower cam on the L-shaped bracket affixed to the fridge requires drilling out the rivet that holds the lower cam. I removed the bracket and held it to my garage vise to drill the rivet for removal. I had purchased replacement rivets but unfortunately, I purchased the wrong hinge cam (some have large hole and some have small hole for the rivet) and the rivet head slipped through the hole. Instead, I used a small flat head machine screw and nut. Be sure to also use a star washer or locktite since there is frequent circular motion that might loosen the nut.

Refrigerator wouldn't close on it's own

The Hinge Cam Riser had broken (small plastic part) and needed replaced. Once I had the part it took all of 5 minutes to repair, I emptied all the contents on the door, removed the plastic cover on the top hinge, removed the 2 5/16 nuts holding the hinge then removed the door. I placed the new Hinge Cam Riser on the bottom pin then replaced the door. Works great!

killed power-gently pried out old switch using two screw drivers-replaced faulty switch-and tested OK.

Ice dispnser worked intermitently. My diagnosis led me to the freezer door light switch. Switch operated the light but stopped the ice dispenser. After replacing the switch the dispenser operates every time now. problem solved.

light switch in freezer broke

  • Customer: DAVID from WILLIAMSBURG VA
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Used small screw driver to pry the top of the switch away from left inside wall of freezer side of side-by-side refrig./freezer; then used pliers to remove the switch; then removed the 3 prong socket and plugged it to new switch and installed it into the inside wall of the freezer.

chunk of curved white plastic came out when my wife was getting crushed ice. The "snow" from the crushed ice over time builds up at the ice chute and distorts the plastic parts around the ice knives. No amount of conversation can get the person to check the chute.

Empty out all the ice. Check how all moving parts operate together and get a clear picture when you replace parts so you know how it is to look upon completion. Unscrew the four screws that hold the front housing together and make sure you remember where you placed them. Three are the same and one is stainless steel at the ice container deflector. Replace the parts and attempt to put it together the first time. The ice auger had to be disconnected with a "C" washer to lock it in place along with a thin washer bearing. Take it apart two or three times to make sure the auger works before going to the next step. After the third or fourth evolution, it was like field stripping your M-1 rifle in boot camp it went so smoothly. It was really simple to do this job, just a little tedious. Now my wife can have crushed ice again and in a few months, some of the same plastic parts may break again because of the "snow" build-up. I know where I can find the parts, or maybe just buy another refrigerator. Thank you for seeing how the repair went. Jim
