Ice maker tray in side by side leaked and created large lumps of ice

  • Customer: Catherine from Punta Gorda FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Unplug refrigerator, turned off water to ice maker, unscrewed bracket, lifted ice maker off clips, pulled out water hose,disconected wiring harness and lifted out old icemaker. Reversed the process and it worked like a breeze and no service call. Space is very tight and you have to do a lot of feeling without actually seeing what you're doing and you need a small flashlight. It was so easy with diagram provided on PartSelect's website.

Found PartsSelect on internet. Read data, watched remove/replace video, ordered new Ice Marker. Arrived in 11/2 days-quick. Both removel and install very easy; three easy to remove screws, disconnect wire harness pull it out. However, water cup on end of the new Ice Maker was faceing 90 degrees the wrong way! Had to totally disassemble both new and old Ice Makers to swap water cups. Reassemble, pray it was done correctly and install. New Ice Maker works like a champ and no leaking--Thanks PartsSelect.

After years of using a flash light to check the contents of my refrigerator, I decided to try to fix the problem myself. Replacing the light switch was very easy. The directions were straight forward and I'm sorry I waited so long to tackle the problem.

Natural door closer and lower hinge pin worn out

  • Customer: Sylvia from Roxboro NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Did all of work without removing door. Door is approximately 2 1/2" off floor, so shim door with a piece of two by four and wood shims to hold door level while removing bolts. Had mirror lying on floor underneath the hinge to see location of bolts. Removed 3 bolts that hold the metal bracket. After removing the bracket the pin slides out. Then remove another bolt from the door closer, this enables the old closer to be removed. Then replace new closer with one bolt. Slide hinge pin back in place making sure tab is toward refrigerator to line up with hole in metal bracket. Replace metal bracket with bolts. Tools used were 1/4" drive ratchet, 1/4" drive 3" extension and a 1/4" drive 5/16 " socket

After receiving the new ice maker assembly I placed the new part next to the old one to see what I needed to transfer from the old to the new. After removing the wiring harness and a few small parts, I placed them on the new assembly. After that it was a snap which timewise took about 15 minutes. I am pleased to say the ice hopper is full and being replenished very efficiently.

1. Prepare the new ice maker by installing the bail cut off from old unit and installing the wiring harness from old ice maker. 2. Turn off the freezer unit only and turn off water supply. 3. Unplugged the electrical connector from the ice maker to the plug in back of freezer compartment. Remove the three (3) screws holding ice maker in place. Placed the cap from old unit to new ice maker. 4. Plug the electrical connector to the plug in back of freezer. Attached new unit with the three screws. Place bail in on position and turn the freezer and water on, ice made in circa 3 hours (without leaking I might add :)

I watched the instructional video included with the shipping date e-mail(about 3 minutes long), and simply followed the instructions. It took about 2 days for the refrigirator section to return to normal cool temperature to the level set.

I accessed the model with the model number, isolated the part and ordered it online. Very simple procedure and great online interface to identify the part. On receiving the part I disconnected the water line, followed the instructions to remove the bracket and then the valve. Re-attached the new valve and replaced the bracket. Attached the water supply and tested the valve. Once it all worked fine I moved the refrigerator back into position.

Loud, non-rythmic clicking noise shortly after the compressor comes on, continuing for several seconds.

Replaced the "Run Capacitor. The non-rythmic clicking associated with the compressor coming on continues. The problem was obviously not the Run Capacitor". I don't know what to do next. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Phillip

My original ice maker was leaking

  • Customer: Joyce from West Palm Beach FL
  • Difficulty: Easy

I went online to PartSelect to see how much I'd expect to pay for the ice maker assembly if I called an appliance repairman to fix it. Instead I found an awesome, very well described video on how to do it myself. I ordered the part and paid ground shipping, but received it the next day!! Installation was a breeze (except I got help removing the electrical jacket because it was an awkward angle and I was afraid that I would damage it). The experience did as much for my single, 55 yr. old self esteem as it did for my wallet. Thank you PartSelect! I'll be back!

Repair was very easy. I watched the video and read the descriptions by other customers and it was just as described. Had ice again in about 4 hours and has been working great since.

Fan motor would not start on it's own

Removed back cover to see motor and the fan. Un plug the fan motor from the fan. Used 1/4in socket to remove 3 screws, then unscrewed plastic mounting plate off of motor, put plate back on new motor, used pliers to remove nut from fan blade,and rubber washer replaced to new motor. Then put new motor back in. Make sure motor is centered back in hole and fan does not hit. The brackets (3) that hold motor in place will swing so it can be centered in hole. Spin blade to make sure blade not hitting and is centered. Now plug fan motor back in. Just that simple.
