I followed the video provided by PartSelect, very helpful. I had to cut and splice 4 wires. The repair was successful. The replacement part was an exact duplicate of the original. I still notice the same sound but one tenth the volume. I hope the problem does not return. Many thanks to PartSelect for information to identify the problem and prompt shipping of the repair part.

Followed the video instructions with the help of a young man who worked on trailer hitches before and knew how to splice wires.Beware of splicing the wrong fan motor back into the assembly....that happened here and we had to start the splicing all over again with the correct fan motor.

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).

UNit was not cooling properly. Only the bottom side of the freezer was cold, and the same on the other side, just the bottom.

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.

Anyone can do this. I am a 70 year old woman. With a kitchen knife, I gently pushed up from the bottom of the old and broken light switch to disengage the plastic catch. Then I unplugged the old one and plugged in the new one. It was then a matter of sliding in the new light switch paying attention to which side was "up". It works perfectly.

Not only was your parts selection very easy to understand,
The Video shows exactly how to install that part.
This was So Easy to repair. I thought I would have to take
the door apart from the inside but the repair was completed
with the door closed and took about 10 to 15 min. to complete.

The video was clear and the repair looked easy. My only problem was that the trim piece that had to be removed first was very hard to get off. I called PartSelect and ask if I was doing it correctly. (I didn't want to damage anything else) The person I talked to said that they don't provide technical service help but that he'd look at the diagram of the refrigerator to see if he could help me. He was able to confirm that I just had to apply more force to get it off. With the aid of a putty knife I was able to pry it off. After that I followed the video instructions and it was easy to make the repair. Things went back together easily and the problem was resolved.

Simple fix with information furnished online with the Dispenser Door Solenoid Assembly. Unplug fridge, remove selection panel by pulling out gently at the bottom until it releases then unplug the 3 connectors, remove next panel by unscrewing the 4 corner screws, then remove the solenoid by loosening the top screw and removing the two on the bottom, wipe all clean and reassemble in reverse with new solenoid hanging piston over ice door flapper lever first then sliding it into solenoid as you move it into position. Easy fix....$35 hopefully extended the life of a faithful older fridge for a few more years since it work/looks new.

I simply followed the video instructions and it was a breeze, so easy I couldn't believe it . The GE repairman where going to charge me approx. $265. 00 for this repair and another service person wanted to charge me $ 100.00 just to remove and replace these items that I purchased from you . The experience was great as well as the SAVINGS, Thanks again for your professional service. Also I did receive a defective part and this company sent this part back to me within 2 days , preventing any delays on the repair. Thanks, Blanhue
