I used a knife blade to slip under the edge of old switch to pray it out of the hole it was inserted into, switched the wires and replaced the new switch into the same hole. It took about five minutes!

Pried out the old switch with small screwdriver, popped in the new one and tah-dah!! ..the light came on. While I was at it, I cleaned out the freezer :). I cannot begin to imagine what a repairman would have charged for this.

I broke the switch pulling the freezer basket out.

I watched the on line you tube video on how to DIY. The putty knife worked to pop out the switch. I used the standar screwdriver to unplug the switch from the wire harness. Then plug in the new switch and pop it back in to the roof of the freezer. Tip: watch out when ordering the new switch - the freezer switch is different than the refrigerator switch. The freezer has three prongs. The fridge has two. I initially ordered the wrong part and added a week to the repair time and had to pay shipping to return the first switch.

BROKEN ICE MAKER MOTOR FROM PLASTIC ICE TRAY

  • Customer: Jim from Washington MI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Given that the augur motor had broken away from the ice tray, removal of the ice tray was simple. Simply remove one screw and slide the tray up and out. Removal of the motor was simple by squeezing the top and bottom of the wire harness plug located on the back of the freezer compartment wall, although it was by feel. The real problem came with trying to remove the augur from the motor shaft (it has a left hand tread) It is on tight and while trying to remove it – I stripped the threads on the motor shaft and couldn’t get the augur off. That’s when the cussing started. No easy fix for this so in addition to the ice tray, I had to order a new ice Bucket Auger Drive Motor Kit (which included the augur for the end of the motor shaft).
Once all the parts arrived, and I had the motor and solenoid assembled and mounted to the back of the tray, the hardest part was plugging the motor back into the plug on the back of the freezer wall- you’ll be doing this by feel (which is a poor design). One suggestion, take a picture of the wire connections between the motor and solenoid – just to be on the safe side – before taking it all apart.

ice maker not working.

  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

ordered this part first thinking it was the water line issue. we fixed it and it was not that hard but it did not solve the problem. We ended up ordering the icemaker part and installed it and it works fine now. I should have ordered the inside part first and then the valve but it is new now.

Plastic tip broke off the insulated flap. Would not seal against icemaker.

  • Customer: William from Heath OH
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Removed two screws from face plate then nudged plate up until it cleared the two top screws. Removed three screws holding the actual kit in place. Gently pulled the unit forward and pulled the water tube out from above the kit, then disconnected the wires connecting the unit. At this time the unit is separated from the refrigerator and you can disconnect the solenoid to remove it. The plunger in the solenoid was a little different from the old one as it connects to the insulator flap bar but Partselect has made a good/easy modification for replacement. Before installation I recommend lubricating the plastic actuator switch. Reverse the procedures you used to access the unit. Very easy.

When calling to see what the repair would cost my prices ranged from 250.00 to 175.00 with parts and labor. But I decided to tackle this project myself after watching the installation video. My parts arrived quickly and I watched the video had my repair completed within 30min and saved myself over 100.00 dollars. Thank you PartSelect!! The step by step instructions made this project a breeze.

I followed the directions from the YouTube video, which were spot on correct! Loved it. No problems. I did have to wind the spring one more turn than it showed on the video, but that was easy to figure out. No problems!

Icemaker door flap bracket broke

The home service repair through our utility company checked the refridgerator and then looked for parts. Their conclusion is the part was no longer available and we should "just reach into the icemaker when we want ice until we replace the refridgerator.) The refridgerator is a top of the line model and replacement cost is well over $2,000 so that wasn't a good option. So I checked PartSelect and found the part which I received in 3 days, installed it in a few minutes and we're back in operation!

Flap on ice dispenser was broken

  • Customer: Joan from Bessemer AL

We put all the new parts in that came with this kit including the Solenoid. It was super easy. I have a home warranty which covered the refrigerator ice maker, however, it would have cost me $75 just to bring out a repairman and then it would have taken up my time to be around when he wanted to come out. Buying this part and doing the job ourself cost me less money AND time.
