This has been a problem for some time and had I known how simple it was to repair, I would have done it a long time ago. I followed the online instruction provided and had it done in under 15 minutes! I removed the upper drawer and shelf, the middle drawer and glass shelf, unscrewed the 2 screws holding the broken slide rail to the side of the refrigerator, applied the new slide rail in place of the old, replaced the glass shelves and drawers and that was it! Works like a charm!

I watched the Utube video, repeated the process at home while awaiting the part, and installed the flapper door in about 15 minutes after it arrived--piece of cake. The hardest part was removing the escutcheon plate on the front of the freezer door. I figured out I could slide a putty knife under it and the rest of the project was completed in no time at all.

Your Video really made it easy, showing the actual replacment of the part. However I did have one problem, which was I could not unplug the panel just by pulling on the plugs. A locking catch is on each plug so I just moved the panel out of the way.

The flapper on the ice chute was curled up and not creating a good seat, so the chute kept clogging up with frozen condensation, especially during the humid summer months. The online video made it so easy to replace the part myself. I was able to fix the problem in under 15 minutes and at a fraction of the price!

Disassembled the ice dispenser which became difficult because of very rusted screw heads. After I got dispenser apart, I had to go to a local hardware store to try to find replacement screws. Apparently, appliance screws are specialty items and I had to purchase the screws that most closely matched. I also had to purchase a ice dispenser door solenoid locally since I already had the dispenser all apart and I wanted to complete this job. The solenoid was very rusted as well and not functioning properly. It also took awhile to clean the rust stains off of the dispenser parts. If screws could be purchased along with the new parts that would have been very helpful and stainless screws would end the rusting screw heads issue but not the rusting door solenoid. All good at the end of the day with the sticking dispenser door repaired. Later, I replaced the dual water valve assembly because water was dripping on the ice maker components causing the ice maker to quit working and water was dripping into the bin as well. Replaced valve and that went well but, I still have water dripping on to the ice maker components. I will give it a couple of days to see if it stops and if it does not I will contact PartSelect.com.

I followed the video instructions to the letter and it was very easy and a total success. I believe I would have had problems but for thr video demonstration which was very clear and straight forward in a simple manner. Thanks for the prompt delivery of the part and the help installing it.

Googled how to replace the door seal, ordered parts and replaced the door seal flapper. The video on partselect was not correct for this GE model. However a simple diagran showed you simply remove the control panel directly (pops off) to provide access to the panel. Remove the 4 screws holding the panel, replace the door seal, and reassemble.
