Ice maker was leaking

  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Watched the video that showed how to disassemble the ice maker. Then went right in and replaced the part and turned it on. It immediately started filling up the ice tray. I still have not been able to find out why it does not make as fast as the original ice maker. The tempeature for the freezer is set pretty cold.

Took the ice bucket out and had to disassemble it completely to get the old auger end out of the grinding blades at the front of the ice dispenser. That part was kind of tricky because I was just using pliers to hold the blades while I got the lock washer off the plastic threaded piece that the auger screws into. Make sure you keep those blades in the precise order they come off, along with the plastic bushings that go in between some of them. Once I got the old auger free of the plastic end piece it went pretty quickly from there. I could never get the new auger to screw cleanly into that plastic end piece. It kept cross-threading so I just shoved it back on and it seemed to be snug enough. I've been using it for a couple of weeks and it is doing great.

I replaced the Defrost Timer & Defrost Thermostat previously only to find that the freezer was still freezing up. It was obvious that the Defrost heater was bad and I ordered it. I had ignored Parts Select reccommendations on my first order otherwise it would have been less than 30 minutes to complete all of the repairs. It took longer to defrost the freezer coils than the actual repairs took. I followed the published installation from Parts Select and now my 10 year old side by side is working like a new appliance. Thanks Parts Select for the fast shipping and accurate replacement instructions. Jim from Virginia, you get 10 stars from me!

Water dispenser doesn't work

  • Customer: Thomas from Metairie LA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Wrench set

Watched the video on how to repair this problem. Folowed the simple instructions and it worked. The double outlet water valve worked as it should. When I tested the water dispencer nothing came out of the spiggot on the door but water poured out all over the floor because the 5/16" water line from the replacement valve to the front of the refrigerator was brittle and cracked. I've ordered the part. MORAL OF THE STORY - if your are replacing this double outlet valve, buy the water line and the union for the dispencer. You'll save yourself time, postage and effort. From the looks of it sooner or later the water line gets "cooked" and breaks/cracks.

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
