Took old part out, put new part in. Thats not the story here, it was the ease of finding the part needed, the price was very reasonable and the service was second to none! The part arrived in less than 48hrs. (no special shipping was used) I would like to thank the people at PartSelect for a great experience. Other companies I have delt with in the past could take a few lessons in customer service from PartSelect. I highly recommend them! Patrick Spinks

I determined that the auger was broken. But with company coming in a week I did not want to take a chance with needing additional parts. I simply ordered the whole assembly. It arrived in plenty of time and installing it was easy. Take it out of the box, rinse it out with warm soap and water, dry it out, remove the old bucket and slide the new one in its place. Absolutely no problem! I was surprised on how well the new ice dispenser worked after the swap. My old one must have been broken for some time.

First of all, you must watch the video on the partselect.com site. The video helps a lot. Then, you can start disconnecting the power cable; unscrew the cover of the main control board. Disconnected the connections from the old board. Unplug the board with a help of a small plier. Installed the new board, connect all connections back. Put the cover back. Connect back the power cable. Unit is running as a brand new.

First warm day of summer noticed beverages were cool but not cold pulled the refrigerator away from the wall and noticed quikly the condensor fan was not working

We were not sure if the problem was with the fan or the main control board after reading other posts with similar problems we decided the main control board was most likely the problem our unit is over 5 years old with heavy use. We left the fridge pulled away from the wall and put a medium size fan aimed toward the condensor, compressor area and that worked bringing the temperature down and the unit did shut off. This further assured us that it was probably the main control unit and we also figured with the units age the control board would eventually have to be replaced. It took several days to get the main control unit(not bad)and we left the fan in place during the wait. We watched the video read the instuctions and had just a small problem removing some of the wiring harnesses nothing major. Squeezed the plastic tabs with needle nose pliers my son pulled as I watched everything carefully came off well put the new one in place easily plugged all the wires back on you cannot put them in the wrong place do to the configurations plugged the unit back in and the fan went right to work. Put everything back together and the unit runs as quiet as it did when it was new the part was a little pricey but saved the cost of a repair man

A local appliance parts shop told me that GE refrigerators were notorious for bad control boards. The new one cost ~ $200, with express shipping. Removal and installation were easy and straight-forward. After the replacement, the refrigerator is working fine--for now.

Refirerator and freezer not holding temperature

I have very close clearance to a facing island counter, so I removed the door handles using a small allen wrench. I moved the unit out from the cabentry and removed the six or so screws holding on the cover plate for the main circuit board. I labeled the several pin connectors to the board, and used pliers to gently remove them from the old board. The instructions that came with the replacement board discussed cutting wires depending on my specific unit, but it was clear I did not need to do that. I replaced the circuit board and replaced the cover plate. For good measure I vacuumed the dust from the heat exchanger. The repair worked very well as the unit cooled down from a freezer/refigerator temp of 14/40 to -1/35 in a matter of a few hours.

Refer would not get cold. Compressor would nor run.
