Pulled the Ice Maker tray out, emptied the ice and turned the ice maker off. Then I took the inspection cover off, which was simple but I was trying to remove the Ice Crusher Assembly, I thought I might break the tray assembly if I forced it. I remembered seeing a link for a video link. Took time to watch it, just a few minutes, it made mention that you needed to let the tray warm up or it could crack when you pry the ice crusher assembly out. Once I saw how they removed it, it was a piece of cake. Guys watch the video and it will be a simple fix.

I followed Parts select video and the only tough part was the plastic tabs were difficult to release. A good tip so that you don't mix up the cutter blades is to slip them on a screw driver as you take them off old auger. I'm a 84 year old widow and I'm proud of myself!

The repair was extremely easy because PartSelect.com had a video on how to repair this item. I set up my ipad and played the video step by step. The gentleman, who was explaining how to replace the part, was outstanding! He did not miss one step which made my repair very easy. It took less than 30 minutes from getting my tools, replacing the part, re-installing the ice bin, and clean up. The only prep work was, in the morning, I removed the ice bin so it could be room temperature, just like the video said. (I saved the ice so my family could have ice throughout the day.)

I followed the instructions under "Plastic auger blades broke in ice tray". The only difficulty was getting the part 325 to release from part 352. Had to do some careful prying with small flat screwdrivers to make the release.

Not a clue on what I was doing. I watched the video this company sent me on how to remove and install the auger. This video came with my email confirming my package was sent. I watched this video as I installed pausing it until my task was completed and it was done in no time.

Watched a video as prep. Popped plastic trim off(always scary, thinking plastic will break and it won't go back on), unscrewed control panel and popped wires off. replaced the items I had bought except micro switch which was fine. cleaned all the muck off the innards, replaced all plastic without anguish. I filled a glass with ice and watched with glee as the flapper slammed shut, keeping room air out and curing my iced up icemaker problem. God bless PartSelect!

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.

Refrigerator would start. No power to door control panel.

I unplugged the refrigerator and removed cover to the motherboard. I unplugged the ground wire and all other connections, unsnapped the board and removed. Snapped the new one into place and reconnected all connections. I used the old ground wires and simply removed the new from the new board. I plugged it up and bam it worked.

contacted partselect online,chose part from part listings and ordered the part online. PartSelect sent the part quickly and I changed it as soon as it came in. Took about 20 minutes total.This is a good web site and i will recomend it to others. The ice maker won't work now so I'll have to order the parts to fix that.

I changed the defrost thermostat and the evaporator thermistor and the main control board I didnt change the defrost heater because I tested it for continuity and it did have continuity, the freshfood section and freezer section thermistors had 16.3 k ohms + - 5 % so I didnt change those, and the problem got worst now the freezer section wont cool under 40 degrees and the fresh food section is about 50 - 60 degrees I might as well put the old board on at least the freezer was actualy freezing for a week or so, before it needed defrosting.
