refrigerator evaporator fan noise

  • Customer: Alan from Sunapee, NH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 5 of 8 people found this instruction helpful
Despite attempts to quiet the 2 year old fan, I went ahead and replaced it. Part Select was prompt with a new one at my door less than 24 hours. It was just the fan motor, so took a couple extra steps to place it in the metal housing, but no problems and though the frig still makes noises, it's not coming from the fan as before.

My repair was simple. Just put the shelf in the holes in the freezer. The AMAZING thing was how quickly I recieved the part after placing my order. I placed the order at about 3:30 pm on a friday checked the box for ground shipping and the part was at my door the next morning. I think that was a mistake, but I was impressed.

I ordered 2 end caps just to keep one as spare. Turned out I had ordered a size larger than the one already on the refrigerator. So I replaced both ends and it worked fine - with increased shelf space. Now I can even fit a gallon container with ease!!! Took about 20 seconds. I just wish there was an easier way to measure parts before ordering. Otherwise, the entire process from order to finish took about 3 days.

switchlight on my refrigerator was not working

  • Customer: Eileen from Coto de Caza, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 4 of 8 people found this instruction helpful
I found instructions on the web about how to do this repair, so I ordered the part with confidence. But the instructions simply said "pull out the old switchlight". That was actually somewhat difficult as the clip on the side intended to hold the part in was stubborn. I eventually used a utility to slice off the clip. From that point, it was just a matter of plugging in the new switchlight , which was very simple.

The replacement cap fit perfectly. Unfortunately when the orinigal cap broke it tookout a small piece of the surrounding plastic leaving nothing for the new cap to catch. I have the piece and tried several kinds of glue but nothing holds it securely enough. I would however readily recommend your company. The service was terrific.
Thank you.

I didn't know if I could get a replacement part, but I googled "replacement parts" (or some such), and since this website looked easy to navigate, chose it. (Actually, I did my ordering via telephone). The sales rep. helped me clarify which part I needed, I ordered it, and received the part the very

I simply snapped the two end pieces into place, attaching the guard rail. It was like putting the pieces of a very easy puzzle together‚ especially for someone like myself who is mechanically challenged.

Condensor fan blade cracked, blade was sheared off.

  • Customer: Bradley from Cedarburg, WI

First, remove the cardboard cover on the back, lower portion of the refrigerator.

Next, locate the condensor fan motor assembly and blade. (Right side as you are facing)

Using a pliers, hold the shaft to keep it from turning and prevent damage to the motor. Using a screwdriver, slide the old ring compression on the blade shaft toward the motor (away from the fan blades) to loosen.

Remove old blade from the shaft by firmly grasping the motor shaft with a pliers (to prevent from damaging) and pull the blade assembly off.

Reverse the above steps to attach the new blade.
