It was a tough job to replace the drawer slide rails at the bottom of the refrgerator on both the left and right sides. I had to get on the floor on my knees and stomach to get my head inside trying to see the work to be done. First the screws from the broken drawer slide rails had to be removed. The screws in the front part of the rails were a little easier than those in the middle. (Fortunately, there were none in the back.) The screws are hidden in cylindrical grooves and one can't get its head in far enough to see. The middle ones are extremely difficult when on your kneees and stomach. Using a trouble light inside helped a little. The screws in the middle were really tough especially inserting and starting the turning, both in loosening and tightening. Fortunately, I had long nose snips that allowed me to brarely grab the end of the Philips screws and gently insert them in the grooves. Then with luck in aligning the sacrews. I was able to start the tightening but had to use my left hand on the right side as there was no room for my right hand. The total job took a few hours of struggle but I finally finished the job and it was perfect. If I ever have to do it again, I'll know the procedure better. The completion of this task gave me great satisfaction. I think my description here is probably more than neeeded.

Just as your video described, although due to the age of the fridge, it took a bit longer to remove the defective switch. Your video made this so simple, I can't imagine why we lived with a dark fridge for so long! I was ready to buy a whole new fridge, as repairmen are often nonexistent for small repairs. I am the biggest fan of your company & it's repair video. THANK YOU SO MUCH

I went to the internet and found parts select web site. Saw all of the possible fixes for my problem and read all of the other repair stories. My story actually became a journey that is still continuing. I first changed the water filter, but still no water at the dispenser. I next disconnected the coupling at the bottom of the freezer door that carries water to the dispenser and when the dispenser was depressed, water flowed at the coupling, but not at the dispenser. After reconnecting the coupling, I turned the freezer setting to 1 for 4-5 days, but still no water at the dispenser (possibly the line was frozen, but we had recently been away for a week and the water dispenser still supplied water at a freezer setting of 4). Now I am at the point of the journey into replacing parts one at a time to get water. First I ordered the dual water valve for the ice maker and water dispenser. I replaced this valve with instructions from Parts Select and still no water at dispenser. Next I ordered and replaced the switch at the dispenser lever and still no water. Next was the solenoid attached to the ice door, ordered, replaced and still no water at dispenser. I am now at the final part in this repair and that is the $132 circuit board. So I will be ordering this part soon and hopefully that will fix the issue.

The Part Select videos made the repair super easy. Monkey see -monkey do. One thing that should be stated more strongly is that you need to UNPLUG THE APPLIANCE SO YOU DON'T SHORT OUT THE MOTHERBOARD. Accidentally shorting out the motherboard makes the repair much more expensive.

I went on Parts Select and typed in the problem, and they gave me the parts that might be the problem. So, I ordered the two parts, and put them in. Was really easy, as there are videos on parts select to help you remove the part and put the new one in. So simple. My freezer is working right now, so time will tell.

Replaced the auger. The Parts Select video was excellent, but it continued to make only crushed ice after installing new auger. I took it back apart and removed the crusher blade assembly and discarded them. Now I have cubed ice only but that is what I wanted anyway!

Without the video, I would have been lost. I pulled the entire bracket out of the refrigerator, but could not insert the tab and adjust the bracket back in place, so I removed the bracket and motor, inserted the main frame bracket then re-installed the motor, fan , grommets, bracket. It's working.
