Watched a youtube on capacitors- though on a motor with a pulley, the symptoms were the same, motor running and pulley not turning-bad capacitor. Took a chance for a 17+ dollar part vs a new compressor. It worked.

Followed the video by Parts select. Very accurate to remove and replace. The only trouble I ran into was getting the clip back onto the fan blade shaft! Have to improvise and use a wirenut to spread it and it went right onto the shaft. Now working perfectly! Thanks for the video and the fast part service shipping...

I replaced the Vegetable Pan Cover myself and it looks and fits great. The hardest job was unloading so that the previous cover could be taken out. I was proud of myself for being able to do this job myself without any help. Ordering and receiving the part was so easy that I will always use Parts Select. Thanks again. Juaneese

Googled the model number of refrigerator with symptoms of "refrigerator wont run". Parts select web site appeared on my screen, opened Parts Select website, Partselect said probable cause of my frige symptom was that the run capacitor usually burns out 51% of the time. They were correct with the diagnosis 100%. I ordered the run capacitor for $23.00, installed it in 10 minutes, refrigerator runs good as new. Thank you for saving me cost of service call. I probably saved $200 or more. I will use Partselect again with my next problem. THANK YOU,

I was so surprised when I went on line put in the model number the item came up so quickly, price was cheap I order the same day less than 2 days it arrived. Love the site will use for many things moving forward, service was quick and easy it took me less than 5 minutes total to find site and order product. I would recommend site to anyone that needs pieces for your appliances.

Loud noise from the freezer area during the defrost cycle

  • Customer: Glenn from Lincoln MI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

Removed all the freezer inside panels to inspect the motor before I ordered the part. It looked like a relatively easy job to change it. I also watched the really nice video on the website that re-inforced my confidence in doing the job. The part came in a few days. I disassembled the freezer interior exactly as the video showed.(Warning: be careful with the styrofoam piece if the fridge is not fully defrosted. The ice build-up could cause it to break when trying to pull it out!)The only problem I had was getting the little collar on and off the motor fan shaft, and getting the fan off the shaft. I had to pull really hard for it to come loose and then I had to push really hard to get it back on the new motor shaft. I didn't know if could have used any kind of lubricant or not, so I didn't. After that the re-assembly inside the freezer went well, being careful to put everything back in the correct order and position. Started the fridge back up and it has been running very quietly ever since. But, most important, my wife was impressed with my work and is very pleased with the result!

Pulled out old shelf and put in new one. However the new shelf is too narrow and will break at some point just like the old one. Apparently no way to fix this issue.
