The repair is a snap, you can watch the video and it will put you on the right path. My story is more about the service that Part Select gave me. I used a small box fan on low as a temporary fix. My model number was worn off from the box wine we store in that particular place. So I ordered the part based on looks, well it was wrong. Called Part Select and we talked, the nice lady on the other end said OH it must be this fan motor. Send us back that one, and I'll get this out too you. I'll credit your account for $7.99, and it cost me $8.99 to ship back the wrong part. Wow, the next day I received the new motor. They sent it overnight! I thought it would be 5-6 days! Unbelievable. I will use this company for any, and all my repairs.

The refrigerator was making load and unusual noises.

  • Difficulty: Easy

I identified the noise was coming from the coils / and the fan. Cleaning the fan helped reduce the noise a bit but it still kept recurring. I ordered the part, which was really easy using the diagram on the website. The instructions and the video were really helpful and was able to remove the old motor and replace it with the new one with relative ease. While there I cleaned the fan blade and vacuumed the surrounding area. This whole repair went quite smoothly and has given me the confidence to take on other repairs before calling out the repairman.

replace bulb. If the water in the freezer door stops, leave the light on. Thaws water. Works great. Keep extra bulbs on hand.

Because of the socket design a bulb with a slender shoulder design is necessary for replacement. Replaced with the original equipment type with no problems. Just a matter of using a little finesse with the tips of your fingers to get the bulb lined up properly with the socket then turning until finger tight.

Very simple and straight forward you need to pull out ice bin then disassemble ice maker to access top screws. A total of 4 screws holds the back piece and 2 screws for ice maker. Took approx: 10 mins but I serviced ice maker and cleaned everything so I spent about 25 mins total. Not difficult at all if you are somewhat handy.

Parts were perfect. Shipment great. It took a bit of time to get back to the Evaporator fan, so i basically had to take the entire freezer apart. Not a problem. The one issue i ran into was my unit had 2 white wires which connected to a silver bullet thing, that were not included in the wiring harness. Maybe I could have ordered that part (thinking out loud) I had to cut the old one apart, and adapt them into the new one, which had 2 holes to spare for this purpose. I guess i could have spliced every wire, but didn't. The freezer now SOUNDS LIKE A FREEZER. Thanks,
