The evaporator gan motor would work sometimes, but not always, so it took a while to be sure this was the problem. First ruled out thermostat and defrost timer. Also observed build up of ice on coils, so I knew compressor was working. Once I isolated problem to evaporator fan ( by observing stuck once, and seeing how it didn't spin freely) replacement was easy. In fact, since we were able to keep the unit running by watching the old fan and ensuring it was working while waiting for the new one to arrive, I was able to swap them out, plug unit back in and start it up before the ice in the bin even had time to melt! This repair saved me hundreds in repairs, and even more if I had to buy a new fridge, because the new units are too tall for my kitchen space.

Ice maker quit working, then the fridge & freezer stopped cooling

I actually purchased an ice maker, a combination start device & a run capacitor. I watched the 2 videos which were very helpful, in fact I may not have been able to do this if I had not watched the videos first. It took me step by step. It couldn't have been more simple. I replaced the start device & the run capacitor first just to make sure my fridge would cool again, then when it did, I replaced the ice maker. I saved myself a service call ($59.95) and the labor to replace the ice maker & other parts($140)and that didn't include the parts! By the way I'm female and 71 years old. So if I can do this anyone can.

Open freezer door and close flap on the left being sure not to block the infrared beam. If red light goes solid in a few seconds the Emitter receive and xmit boards are good. Unplugged fridge, Took the ice machine out took off the motor/controller cover and jumpered the two test points together with a short length of insulated wire. place the ice maker back on bracket to free up my hands and plugge in the fridge, turned ice maker on. Closed the flap and ensured red light was on solid and I was not blocking the beam... the motor control wheel did not turn slowly/cycle as it should have with the jumper inserted... Motor/controller assembly was bad. Pulled out icemaker and noticed some corrosion in the ice tray so ordered the entire ice maker instead of just the motor/control assembly... cost only about $30 more. New ice maker arrived and I installed, took about 10 hours before it got cold enough and began making ice.

I have some electronics background but your listed problems helped me narrow down the problem. I ordered the part, removed old part, installed new part (maybe 15 minutes total) and my icemaker started dumping the ice that was in the tray within 20 minutes and making more. That clunking sound of ice was music to me ears and wallet!! Thanks!!

I called a repair man out to see what the problem was because my husband just died and I didn't want to pay such high prices for a repair. He told me I needed a new motor for the ice maker and it would be a total of about 305.00. I couldn't believe the price. It cost me 59.99 for his diagnosis. I went to your web site and found the part and watched you installation video. I am 65 years old and I was able to install the new part in less than 15 min. The part was about 95.00. I saved 150.00 by doing it myself. I will always look on line before I have a repair man do a job. I may need them to diagnose the problem, but I will try myself before paying such outrageous fees.

Watched the trouble shooting & installation videos , checked to make sure water was getting to the door. I look'ed closely at the entire unit. Every thing seem'ed to be ok. I made a guess as to which part to order. The control motor or the thermostat. The control motor made more sense to me. I made the right guess. Works like new.

First I removed the top bracket cover screw with a 5/16" nut driver. placing it aside, I removed the three screws holding the top door hinge off using a 5/16" socket on a 1/4 drive to free the screws , then continued to remove them with the nut driver. placing them aside on top of the refrigerator. Then I lifted the door up and off the lower hinge and laid the door down on my kitchen counter. I removed the lower hinge piece from the lower bracket still on the fridge with a 5/16" nut driver and installed the new piece in its place and also applied a few dots of Vaseline on the lower hinge piece, I then removed the screw and lower bracket from the door and installed the new one and also applied some Vaseline on this piece also. I also took a rag that had been dipped in olive oil and rubbed the entire gasket surround the door to lubricate the gasket to keep it soft, then I reinstalled the door back onto its lower bracket, and then lined door back up correctly and reinstalled the top mounting bracket and screws then the cover, and then tested door. Door opens now with no noise and opens easier also.

Water dispensor leaking/Retainer clip bent

I couldn't figure out if the front plate would come off so getting access to the screw to unscrew it was problematic at first. I don't have whatever tool you need to get at that angle so I used an Allen wrench with a 6.5 mm socket to unscrew the screw and replace the clip. After figuring that combination out it went really fast.

Parts Select has great videos that describe step-by-step how to perform the repair. I did a sloppy job of diagnosing the problem, and concluded it was the water valve. The actual problems was that the ice maker was not sending a signal to the valve to send water. I could have determined this if I had tested the ice maker using all of the connection points where a jumper wire could be inserted. The ice maker arrived on my doorstep exactly when promised, and was an easy ten-minute fix. My conclusion is that an average person CAN work on their own appliances with a company like PartsSelect to backstop them.
