One of the pins holding the door to the Chef's Pantry door broke

  • Customer: Gordon from Bellevue WA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Socket set

Pins holding the door in place are part of the plastic end cap on either side of pantry drawer. Very easy to replace. Need only to remove two bolts holding the broken end cap in place, remove the drawer slide from that piece by removing two more bolts, reinstalling the drawer slide on the replacement end cap, and reinstalling the new end cap. Part was surprisingly cheap and arrived much sooner than indicated.

one mnorning the temp on the frig was in the 50's and the freezer was cold. tried to get someone to come out and repair with no luck. we purchased a new frig. then i decided to see if I could repair the old one to use. I wish I had discovered partselect before i bought the new one. First i thought from the web site that it was a overload/relay problem so i ordered it and changed it out and it was very easy. then that did not correct the problem so i checked further and discovered that it could be the defrost heat element and thermostat. On partselect web site i saw where if your coil is covered in ice that this could be the reason. I ordered them and watched the video of how to change them out. the video is a little misleading because chances are you will not have the room around the coil that it shows on the video and also the element and thermostat will not come as one unit as shown on the video. It is still easy to cut the wires ont he thermostat and install it. the heat element is a little tricky to get out and back in and the clips that holds yours might be a little different and more difficult to do than the video but you can do it. all in all i spent about 160.00 and the frig is working like new.

New KitchenAid built in refrigerator

We just purchased a new refrigerator. It turns out the door handles were optional....After pricing them we decided to shop on line. We purchased a nice set of Whirlpool handles from Partselect.com. I had to drill holes in the decorative front face and then mount the handles with screws. I spent more time double checking my measurements than the actual installation. They look great and saved us over $100.00

Light switch in the refrigerator was faulty from the first day we installed the fridge.

I had ordered some other parts for something entirely different off your website and service was great. So after almost ten years of a dark refrigerator, because of a defective switch, I decided to see if you had the part to fix it... You did and the part got here in 3 days. I had a working light switch and all the light in the world where my husband needed it most (in the fridge). It took me at the most ten minutes to replace the part. All is well now and I have a happy husband who can find the leftovers just fine. Thanks for your great service!

I followed the instructions from your video. I did this replacement all by myself. I am a 64 year old woman and have never done anything like this before. It could not have been any easier.

rust on the shaft in bottom drawer freezer

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Thanks to a very patient husband. He looked at the situation and methodically took the freezer drawer apart by trial and error and was able to replace the old shaft with the one we had ordered. We do not understand why this basic information is not in the manual or on the internet. It was relatively easy once we knew in what order to take the drawer apart.

I mistakenly ordered the wrong part the first time and it was too short. After calling and giving the model # they were able to order the correct part. Installing it was easy, it just dropped into place.

The ice maker change out was easy. The problem was the part came with a different filler cup but the one needed was supplied. Changing to the other cup required taking the ice maker apart and installing the other filler cup. Go to the parts list and find the filler cup. Use instructions found there to change to other cup and then install your ice maker.

Changed the ice unit. Found it was not the problem. Then I changed the solenoid that dispenses water to the ice maker. That is what was defective.
