First, removed the top hinge (3 screws), then lifted the door off the bottom hinge. Replaced the Cam on the bottom of the door and then the Cam on the bottom hinge (one screw for each). Placed the door back on the bottom hinge, reinsert the top hinge into the door and secure top hinge to the refrig with the 3 screws original removed. EASY!!

Very loud clicking noise when opening/closing door

I did it a bit different from instructions mainly because I disassembled it to troubleshoot before going on line to find part and "easier" instructions.I had a 5" block of wood and cut a shim to use with that to hold the door up. I got on my hands and knees with a mirror and removed the lower hinge plate then the screws holding the upper and lower cams. These both were quite worn so I just took them to my shop and with a hand grinder I rounded off the sharpo corners of the cogs of both cams and then reassemble the hinge plate and cams. This eliminated the loud clicking and the door closed easily but I was afraid it woulod not "Auto Close" when needed so I went online to find this page with the parts needed along with wonderful instructions. I ordered both upper and lower cams which came 2 days later (THANKS). I installed them my way since I did not want to empty the door contents and remove the whole door. I used the block, mirror and nut driver to R&R the bottom hinge plate and both cams. Time was still less than 15 minutes, Easy Fix, Thanks guys! Cheers, Ben

Followed the Partselect instructions - removed door, removed old cam and replaced with new cam. One lesson learned. There are two cams - one that sits on hinge below door and one that is up inside bottom of door. If you are replacing one, replace them both.

Refrigerator stopped working

The refrigerator stopped working and temperatures were rising. After inspection, noticed that the compressor is not running and condenser fan not running. I ordered the inverter box and replaced the old one. Compressor started to run but condenser fan still not running. Compressor was getting hot while freezer temperature reduced to some degree. Cleaned condenser with compressed air, connected condenser fan directly to 110VAC. Refrigerator runs normally. Burning of the inverter box may be preventable. We did notice that the freezer portion of the door frame getting hot for over 3 months. This is an indication that the condenser does not provide sufficient heat dissipation. This in turn made the compressor hot and melted away some components in the inverter box which is located next to the compressor. A thorough cleaning of the condenser made the freezer door frame stay slightly warm but not hot. This condition keeps the compressor running at normal temperature. I still need the main controller which is discontinued to automatically control the condenser fan. So far the fan runs all the time and uses a bit more electricity than necessary.

Cracked drip tray

Unscrewed the rear water valve and water line, and front water filter which allowed me to remove the old drip tray. New drip tray is smaller than the original tray, so I needed to put blocking in to keep tray under drip spout. Refastened the water filter, water valve and water line.

The how to video told me what to check to determine what part was probably broken. Then another video showed me how to take it apart. It gave me the name, number, and a photo of the part. I ordered it from Part Select without even checking with another retailer since they gave me the information to do it myself, saving me lots of $ for repair labor costs! Then I watched the repair video again and put it back together! It works! It was simple and I really appreciate this service! Thank You

Ice make would operate but no ice was dipensing. Parts select web site mae it easy to find the exact part. The instructional video (11mins) was extermly helpful. I set my laptop up and opened the video and started and stoped it as I went through the repair. I did use a new trash bag to keep the ice in until the repair was done and then dumped the ice back into the ice tray. The video was spot on and made the job very easy to complete. The new part was an improvemnet over the original OEM part. The kit came with all the parts needed for different versions of teh ice maker.

shipping was faster than promised. Installation was as easy as replacing a light bulb. Make sure you turn off the ice maker before removing old filter - this could save you a big mess. Also, make sure you run about a gallon of water through the system before you start using the dispenser.
