After removing 2 screws from freezer air duct and 2 screws and 2 self tapping screws from back panel, I removed all these, as well as the foam duct connector.

Ordered the motor, and 22 hours later, it arrived. 15 minutes later,and 6 screws reinstalled, it was up and running.

First I removed the ice tray rack lifting it out of the way to reach the back cover of the fan. Then, the whole back inside panel had to be removed. Two screws removed the fan and bracket from the freezer unit. The missing bumper lid just snapped into place. Replaced everything in reverse order. Pretty easy job.

I had lost the bottom hinge during a move and so I rigged the hinge using an old tv antenna and the door never really quite worked right and it was VERY annoying. I stumbled upon this site and was surprised how inexpensive the part I needed was. I was very impressed with the speed of shipping and the install took maybe 5 minutes. The fridge works as good as new. Thanks a ton!

Ordered and received wrong retainer bar caps. Your customer service was knowledgeable of and corrected problem in a timely manner. Wish upon initial order that Dept. would have questioned fact that ordered end caps would not fit the retainer bar end caps. This has all been resolved and repair was successful.

This part broke for whatever reason, I do not know.

I needed a pliers to extract the shelf reatainer from its place in the door of the fridge.

I found the part in the partSelect catalog, ordered it, opened the box, and snapped the replacement part into place. I then popped the Shelf retainer back into place where it belonged.

Piece of cake.

Just replace end cap and install. The beauty of this was the door was broken in the evening before July 4 when all retail had closed down early for the 4th weekend. I hit Part Select on the computer, scrolled down the partslist,looked at pictures and figured out from that the necessary piece I needed, hit the buy button and in less than 10 minutes had an order placed. July 7 UPS was at the door with the parts and my reefer was back in business. NO service call and no extra charges!!! Thank You, PartSelect!!!!
