I watched the video online that related to the parts that I needed to repair. I used a putty knife to insert between the sides of the housing unit to be able to remove it. That was probably the most difficult step. The auger came right out and I was able to replace it with the new one. Of course, reassembly was much easier.

I decided to replace motor and fan, having previously altered/trimmed the fan which stopped the howling but caused a vibration. Unplug from mains. Clear out two top shelves in freezer. Remove light cover. Remove two screws(1/4 driver)at top of steel panel in rear of compartment and let it drop. Remove two screws above light. Pry up section above light/fan housing to access two screws retaining the light/fan assembly, loosen screws sufficiently so that assembly can be lifted and removed. Disconnect wiring plug by pinching in the sides of the plug and pulling out. Pull fan off motor shaft. Remove two screws clamping motor. Cut cable tie and molded wiring grommet to free wiring. The existing light wires can be removed from the old plug by carefully cutting around the old plug to free the pins and then pushing the pins into the new plug. Reverse procedure to assemble.

I removed the ice container with the crusher and saw the crusher cover had pieces of it missing and the broken parts matched the broken areas. I removed the main cover off of the ice crusher and then removed the crusher assembly. Removed the C clip on the auger shaft and then removed ice crusher cover. Received the part and reversed the procedure and re-assembled the the ice container and crusher. Easy job.

No instruction or explanation on how water flows from source to freezer door spout. . It flows from original source through tubing to filter (inside) back out, then down tubing to selinoid, which is controlled by a micro switch in freezer door. The selinoid when activated, allows water to flow from tubing into water reservoir (mounted inside the refrigerator) then cooled in the reservoir then through tubing through Gback out to the base with longer tube routed to the bottom of the freezer door, routed through inside of freezer door up to the spout. You will need to remover the back panel and grill under the front doors to expose the tubing connections and have access to parts. , even remove draws in refrigerator to access the reservoir if necessary. the tubing is easily removed and reattached by pushing the little white rings toward the valve. Now you can check for operation or leaks by simply pushing the water dispenser off and following the path from source to spout, replace defective parts as necessary

Freezer coils icing up and temperature warm

I had a frig several years ago do the same thing -- freezer coils icing up and temperature warm. I had watched the repairman come in and take the back off the freezer and install some part, I knew not what. So I got on YouTube and four this website with instructions and directions of how the put the part in and which part it was. I am good at trouble shooting and was very comfortable after watching the video of what to order. I ordered the part. The instructions were clear. After the coils had thawed, it took less than 30 minutes to install the new part. I installed a Defrost Heater. My refrigerator has worked ever since. I am not a mechanic nor a fixer upper. I am a 60 year old female school teacher.

Was about to return the part because I didn't think I could replace it. Went on line to your web site to get address for return and noticed a video for the repair. Watched the video and repaired the ice maker in no time .Video was very clear and instructive. Thanks, I'll use your service again.

We first read that we should thoroughly clean the coils which we did. They were very dirty, full of dust. This seemed to help for a couple days then the hot and cold started up again and was even worse. We did some research on the internet and all indications led us to change the main control board. We found PartSelect ordered the part, received it super fast (within 2 days), changed the part in less than 15 mins and our refrigerator works like new. No trouble since the repair. Saved a lot of time and money doing the repair ourselves.
