Unplugged the refrigerator first....then on the inside of the fridge, I popped the temp sensor cover off (upper LH side) and exposed the old sensor. I snipped off the old sensor about 3" down from the end and connected the new sensor (which I trimmed down to about 3" long) with some heat shrink wire nuts/connectors. Let the fridge run for a day or so and confirmed the problem was solved! Oh yeah, there was no way to tell the 2 wires apart (power vs. ground) on the sensor. However there was a manufacturer's stamp on the wires. So note the orientation of the text and mark one of the wires with a sharpie on both the old and new sensor before trimming. This will give you a reference for which wires to connect when adding the new sensor to the old wires.

My refrigerator suddenly stopped dispensing ice and water

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I did an internet search on the issue, which was that my refrigerator suddenly stopped dispensing ice and water through the door. Also, the refrigerator had been cycling on and off constantly for some time. I found a YouTube video showing how to replace the main control board; along with a link to order the new part. I ordered the part and selected standard shipping. My part arrived in 48 hours. I replaced the main control board just like in the video. My refrigerator works like new now. I was able to solve my problem in two days on my own, for the cost of parts only. I am sold on PartSelect.com.

my ice maker quit working

I watched the video from the link that was sent to me with the shipping notice. It was very easy to understand. I had no trouble at all. I'm 75 years old woman, however, and I can fix about anything. Don't be afraid to fix appliances yourself if you feel you have the knowledge.

Old Icemaker Stopped Making Ice

  • Customer: Larry from Wildomar CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Instructions that came with the part were useless. I would have created new problems if I had attempted to follow the instructions. However, once I had the old part removed and put it beside the new part, required repair process was obvious, easy and quick. Frig now makes ice better than it ever did.

Freezer too warm

  • Customer: Antoinetta from Lake Ronkonkoma NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

The video instructions were easy to follow as well as the replacement. The replacement Main Control Board is generic to different refrigerators and has more connectors than the original. Be sure to identify the locations prior to removal and installation.

leak in tube above copper fitting

  • Customer: Glenda from Minneapolis MN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
It was fairly easy--disconnect the water supply, remove a bunch of screws on the lower back panel, screws from the clips that hold the tubes close to the back and screws that attach the water filter inside the fridge and disconnect the tubing from the water supply to ice maker. Pull the entire feed (tubes and all) through from the inside and un-clip from the water filter housing. I had to cut the foam carefully so that I could reuse it (it helps to seal the hole that the tubing fits through and there was not included with the part). Clip in the new part, thread the tubes back through, reconnect the water supply and ice maker feed. Turn the water back on and check for leaks. Easy!

I pulled cover off back that housed the board. Unplugged all the wires that went to the board. wires will only fit in one spot so you cannot mess it up. snapped it off the pegs, then replaced new board in same spot. hooked plugs back up and installed ground wire. covered it back up plugged it in and it ran.

I replaced what I thought was a faulty mother board. It was easy to do.

Replacing the motherboard was really easy. However it has not fixed my refrigerator. I continue to have cooling issues with fridge and sometimes with the freezer.

Icemaker does not make ice

  • Customer: Luis from Brownsville TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy

I'm a housewife in her late 40's. Before ordering the part, I watched your video on how to remove and install the new icemaker. First I unplugged the refrigerator. After a few minutes, I unplugged the icemaker and unscrewed it. I lifted it a bit and removed it. I did not use the icecup that comes with the part. Instead I removed the one from the old part and inserted it to the new one. Then I plugged in the new icemaker, placed it inside so as to match the holes and screwed it in. YES, it was that simple. It took me less than 10 minutes to do this. I saved myself over $100!!

Fridge and freezer consistently get warm during Summer

After pulling fridge out from the wall, removing the bottom back panel and inspecting the fridge operating parts, I noticed the condenser fan never comes on. Reading online I found that most of the time the problem is with the main control board. I simply unscrewed the back panel, carefully disconnected the cables from the old board, plugged them back in to the new board, replaced the panel and started the Fridge back up. It cooled right down to normal temperature within the hour! Five years of neurotic behavior around cooling the fridge were over! My wife and I constantly rearranged various fans around the kitchen and joining rooms, opened the cabinet above, taking out the bottom shelf to make more ventilation, pulling the fridge out from the wall several inches, and worrying every time the freezer went up to 9 or 10 or even 20 degrees, and the fridge section up to 40 or even 45 degrees F. I can sleep easy now, and use the fans on us in hot weather, rather than the constant buzz in the kitchen. We can even have a conversation without yelling above the din of the fans!
