Confirmed the condenser fan was the problem when I noted it was not running when the compressor was on. Removed 3 mounting screws, unpluggede the fan. Removed and replaced the mounted flange(3 screws) and remounted. Plugged in fan and it started running.

Thanks for the diagrams and quick delivery. This is the second repair on appliances I have made with your parts and probably saved $300-400 in service calls.

Door parts separated, didn't seal or function

Followed the directions included with the parts, which were exact and well illustrated. If you are comfortable working around circuit boards and electrical connectors (with the power OFF, please!), then you can do this repair. Why electronics on this repair? Because you have to unplug a board to get to the parts, and disconnect the connectors to the solenoid. But again, the directions were fabulous, and I'm almost looking forward to needing to use PartSelect again. Almost.

This was the easiest project of the Holidays. Literally saw the part was broken, went on-line and ordered the part and in a few days it arived at my door. Removed a few screws, unplugged the electrical connector and transfered the motor to the new part.

Saved me a few hundred dollars the repairman would have charged!

THANKS

the main water valve was leaking causing the water under the frig. But the double out let valve was not holding causing a ice build up in the ice bin. The repair was not complicate you take back cover off turn off water. use the nut driver to unbolt the valves from the frig with frig unplugged use screw driver to remove the power plugs from valve. use flare nut wrenches to remove main water line.push on plastic retainer rings to remove plastic tubing. remove valves from bracket and then reinstall in reverse order.

Replaced filter with by-pass plug. For some reason though, ice maker does no longer functions, although there is flow out of the cold water tap. Is the design of the bypass plug such that, when installed, it impedes flow to the ice-maker?

Thanks

Seal wouldn't seal on the freezer's right bottom. When you shut the refrigerator door with any force the freezer door would come open a tad.

Took out all shelves and racks. Pulled out plastic cover. Removed screws holding control unit. Removed unit and accresses defrost circuit board. Replacement is in a cover. One screw would not engage so did not put it back in. Reefer was cold within hour of start and is now 1 week after. Unit would start out cold and then warm up before replacement.
Other parts were snap in furnishings that had become damaged with use.

Freezer worked fine but the Refrig. wasn't getting cold

My husband first replaced the Defrost heater and the fridge still didn't stay cold. We had to defrost the freezer once a week and the fridge would stay cold for a few days, but after we replaced the Thermostat Assembly it worked GREAT! Thank you all for your comments and suggestions it saved us hundreds of dollars having to replace an, otherwise, perfectly fine fridge. Good luck to you if you have this problem, it was sooo fast and easy to replace these parts and totally worth the money.

Ice wouldn't eject from ice dispenser

  • Customer: Gayle from Fair Lawn NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy

I removed the black drip grill and unscrewed the two screws holding the faceplate in place. After unplugging the faceplate from the dispensing unit, I removed the four remaining screws; be careful, one screw is shorter than the others.

I then pulled the dispensing unit away from the freezer door and removed the ice door assembly. WARNING: Make sure that you look carefully at the alignment of the return spring BEFORE you even touch it because as soon as I started using the needle-nose pliers to remove the spring, it shot across the room! Also, look carefully at how the end of the plastic rod fits over the old solenoid; in fact, look carefully at the entire plastic rod and how it aligns with everything!

Unfortunately, the pictures in the instructions are fuzzy so you can't really see how the spring is installed and how the plastic rod fits over the solenoid.

The solenoid was easy to remove and replace. Be aware that the plunger part of the solenoid slides in and out easily, so it's easy for it to fall out of the solenoid unit and roll away.

Once I had everything back where it was supposed to be, I screwed everything back in and the ice/water dispenser worked like new. I was even able to clean off some calcium deposits inside the unit while I had it opened.

If I have to do this again, I would estimate that it would only take 15-minutes or so. It took me longer because I didn't look at the alignment of the plastic rod in relation to all of the parts---that is one of the most important steps of this operation.

Anyone who is comfortable using tools and working with small parts should be able to complete this replacement project with minimal difficulty.

I ordered new solenoid that came with door. I installed it and it was making a very loud buzzing noise. I also had a frost buildup between the icemaker and the icemaker chute in the door. I posted my problem on the forum and Sheila suggested that the heat from the defective solenoid might have distorted the fountain housing, causing the new solenoid not to seat right, and possibly letting outside air into the icemaker. On closer inspection I saw that the hosing WAS distorted. I ordered a new one, installed it, problem solved! Hats off to the staff here, where else can you get a diagnosis first -so you know what parts to order!

Two of the buttons on the water/ice dispenser had tears in the outside plastic preventing them from working.

I could not find the part online because the description did not match the owners manual for the refrigerator. I called the 800 number and decribed what I was looking to replace. They found the part immediately, gave me the part number and then I ordered it online. The part arrived sooner than expected and was wrapped in protective paper as the part was very fragile with a small circuit board on the back. The repair was easier than I thought and saved me nearly $500 in a service call and installation. Thank You - the refrigerator is as good as new.
