I followed the video instructions. They were clear and consise. I removed the trim ring and controls. Them removed the housing and flapper. I did notice a small burr in the plastic chute and foam insulation. I trimmed this off with a utility in hopes this burr caused the flapper to warp. This is the 2nd time the flapper has been replaced in 1.5 yrs. The repair was really easy thanks to the video.

Emptied Freezer (to get access to panel covering condensor coils and Defrost Thermostat). Pulled off cover panesl. Had to wait for ice to clear from condensor. Replaced Defrost Thermostat (5 min job), replaced panels and was back in business.

I pulled the power cord, removed the screws and the cover. After removing the screws from the main control board I unplugged all of the connections from the bad board and plugged them into the new board in the same order. An easy change and a real moneysaver!

The video instructions were outstanding in showing how this repair was to be completed. Follow these instructions and Job was very easy. Replaced ice shute flapper and arm, soloinoid and Micro switch for water flow control. Reassemble by reversing procedure. Follow video instructions on how to replace water control valve in back of fridge. Test water flow at bottom front of fridge and defrost flow tube in door if necessary. I used tupperware container with hot water on top of ice shute shelf in fridge door. A couple of times changing and water was flowing. Great site and detailed video instructions for an effective and cost saving self repair. I saved several service trips and service calls and labor costs of a service tect. Parts costs were also a lot cheaper than service tech would have charged. Thanks PartSelect.

Ice bucket auger broke in several pieces

We order a new part from the website. We disposed in the sink all the ice inside the ice bucket and using the screwdriver we take the parts apart. You just have to be very careful about remembering where every part go. A good tip is to place the screw back into his slot temporary so you will know for sure where it goes. My wife helped me holding the parts while I put all the pieces back together. We finished in less than 30 minutes. You can put back some of the ice to check it, but is better to wait until the bucket is full of ice to test it 100 %.

The repair was simple really. Merely a replacement part. After disconnecting the ribbon cables and removing old panel all that was left was to reconnect all 3 ribbon cables and the ground and put the cover back on. Simple even for a girl :-)

This is a very easy repair. The hardest part was pushing the fridge in and out and having to clean back there!!. Before starting anything, I unplugged the fridge from the wall outlet. I removed 4 nut-drive screws holding the circuit board cover to the back of the fridge. Once the circuit board was exposed, I first compared the current board with the new one to make sure the connections were the same. I did have to use the already existing ground wire (green wire) for the circuit board as the new one provided with the new board had the wrong connectors. I then marked each wire harness from left to right, top to bottom, so I knew what order they were to be reconnected. I then disconnected the 5 wiring harnesses. The hardest part of the repair was removing the board itself. There are 4 plastic connectors holding the board in place. I tried to squeeze them with the pliers, but the board would not come off. I then watched the online video and realized I was squeezing the connectors wrong. After changing how I was squeezing the connectors, the board came out very easily. It was very easy then to snap the new board into place, reconnect the wires, and plug in the fridge. I did test everything before replacing the cover just in case I needed to reconnect something, etc. All in all, this repair took maybe 30 minutes, but that included time to gather the tools, pull out the fridge, clean behind the fridge, replace the board, test the system, and push the fridge back into place. Very Easy
