The replacement itself was as easy as it gets. What made it harder was the need to remove the white plastic cover from the old drawer. Although some said it was easy, ours was a bit of a challenge. The video was helpful, in letting us know to start at the bottom when removing the cover. After that, pretty easy. No tools required.

Freezer is cold, refrigerator is warm. Coils in freezer section frozen.

Unplug refrigerator. Remove the food trays in the freezer section. Unplug the wire connector to the icemaker. Remove the three screws to the icemaker then remove the icemaker. To remove the back panel, first remove the plastic cover on the top by inserting a screwdriver in the indicated slots on the sides then prying until cover snaps off. Remove the plastic cover for the temperature probe in the upper right corner by snapping off the cover and carefully fishing the probe through the hole in the cover. Remove the 4 screws in the rear panel and carefully pull panel out from rear of freezer section. Fish the temperature probe through the hole to allow the panel to be removed. Snap the plastic icemaker plug connecter mounting bracket out of rear panel and fish it through the panel. Now the rear panel can be completely removed. Locate the defrost thermostat in the upper section of the freezer compartment and unsnap it from the copper coil. Cut wires to the thermostat, being sure to leave enough length to splice the new thermostat in. Crimp the wires to the new thermostat using a butt connector and heat shrink tubing to seal up the connection. Snap the new thermostat onto the copper tube where the old one was positioned. It is a good idea to check the heater element with an ohmmeter while you have this all apart. Do this by unplugging the element on the right side and connecting one side of your meter to the plug there and the other side of your meter to the plug connection that is on the icemaker plug (trace the wires). If you do not get any continuity, then your element is bad and will need to be replaced. Replace the rear cover after re-installing the plug assemby for the icemaker and temperature probe. Dont forget to fish the icemaker tube and the temperature probe through the rear cover before screwing it back in place. re- install the plastic covers on the rear panel and the temperature probe, then reinstall the icemaker.

I order a bare crisper frame, no glass, no slider controls. The old frame lifted out easily. I did not realize the glass top is not glued in, because food drippings had it somewhat stuck in place. But only somewhat - I almost dropped the glass when I turned the frame over. Once the glass was out, I removed the humidity sliders by gently lifting one end so I could slide them to a place where they lifted off. (Look for the notch-outs.) Then I put the parts in the new frame and put it back in the frig.

ice maker not making ice

Went very well. I replaced the ice maker itself cause of the high failure rate but that did not fix it. Measured voltage across water solenoid and it was around 1 volt. Measured the voltage at the water solenoid for ice and it was 20 volts. This was measured when it was plugged in. So I replaced the valve took 15-20 minutes including moving the fridge out. Started making ice 8 minutes later.

I viewed the previous instructions people had posted to replace the water valve. I did not have to cut any hoses. The valve I replaced was like the new valve. I was able to pull the hoses out of the old valve by pushing down on the collar around the hoses. The hoses popped out with a little bit of a pull. Attaching the new hoses was very easy. The whole thing probably took about 20 min. This DIY job saved me hundreds of dollars.

frozen water valve in motorhome

This part was very easy to replace. Actual time to remove the tubing and wiring harness and then replace and reinstall tubing and wiring was probably less than 3 minutes. Just be sure to mark each tubing prior to removing so you can reinstall in the correct fitting. In my case, the most difficult and time consuming task was removing the refridgerator rear access panel because I had to do all this through the motorhome exterior access panel which is probably about 10" by 10". Replacing the actual valve was very simple. Quick shipping too to our campground.

I did exactly as the video showed. I popped out the old switch, disconnected the two terminals, connected the new switch and put it back. The light now works! The refrigerator is over 25 years old and the switch works! What a great website this is. Couldn't of done the job without Partselect's help.
