I went online and found a u-tube video for replacing an auger in an ice dispenser. It matched everything I needed and the process also included replacement of the cover as part of the instructions.. The hard part was removing the cover.. I ended up sliding two table knives in between the outer casing of the ice maker and the inside cover to compress the tabs on both sides.. trying the putty knife (as instructed) I could not get the tab to stay released as I shifted from on side to the other.. each time the other side would slide back in and lock.. the table knives worked nicely.. held the tabs out of the way while I pulled the cover off.. My husband was thrilled I accomplished this.. He's not mechanical at all.. I've been bragging about saving us a bunch of money as well.

I saw the video on the Part select website how to replace the Auger and Auger Nut. I ordered the parts and proceeded with the installation which was relatively simple. The video was extremely helpful. I don't think I would have attempted the repair without it. Also Parts Select reps were extremely professional and made sure the parts were applicable to my model before shipping.

Because of the socket design a bulb with a slender shoulder design is necessary for replacement. Replaced with the original equipment type with no problems. Just a matter of using a little finesse with the tips of your fingers to get the bulb lined up properly with the socket then turning until finger tight.

After watching some videos on U tube on how to check the mother board, I did some checking and found out that all the voltages and resistances were OK, so I ordered the fan, the thermistor and a temperature sensor.I got the parts really quick, just a couple of days.After I got the parts I watched the videos suggested in the parts select web page, and I was able to install everything without problems.Now my fridge is working fine, with excellent cooling.

Ironically I did this today, as this email request came up asking how it went. I'm not a repairman, I'm a software engineer, and I can't thank this site enough for the step by step videos. With the video to help, this was a breeze, I was nervous as I had to empty all my freezer out onto the living room floor. Once that was done the repair took about 30 minutes. Thank you partselect!!!!! My second time doing business here, and I'll be coming back (well, if something breaks, so let's hope I don't have to).

Freezer was not keeping food frozen

  • Customer: lee from Frederick MD

The problem began when freezer thawed and could not keep food frozen. Initially, I thought the issue was the defrost heater (because I had seen similar symptoms previously and resolved the issue with a new defrost heater)and I replaced that part with a spare that I had puchased previously. The issue was still unresolved and I noticed the evaporator fan was not running in the freezer because it would not turn on when I closed the door. I checked to make sure I could hear the compressor working (and it was)and concluded that the evaporator fan motor was not running. I ordered the part and found a YouTube DIY video on how to replace it. While I was at work, my fiancee took it upon herself to watch the installation video and install the new evaporator fan motor and all is well.

unusual noise

My refrigerator was making a high pitched kind of howling noise. The PartSelect symptom that was closest was “unusual noise” and when I clicked that it said the evaporator fan motor fixes the symptom 32% of the time. Since my freezer fan speed sounded like it was constantly changing I went ahead and bought one which PartSelect delivered promptly. The installation video was great and although my freezer was not identical to the one in the video, the video was still very helpful. The only thing it didn’t say was how to tell if my freezer motor was the one with the thermistor although I suspect that they all are and that PartSelect is simply trying to save us money by showing us how to splice in a motor without a thermistor. Anyway, since I would have had to disassemble the freezer before buying the part to find out for sure, I just bought the one without the thermistor. This just meant I had to splice the new motor in, just like in the video. I think I would have preferred buying the motor with the thermistor even though it was more expensive. In the end my problem is solved so I’m happy. This is the third time that I’ve had to repair this GE refrigerator and PartSelect has been a valuable resource each time.
