lower pan frame and door bin had broken plastic parts

  • Customer: Angela from Arlington MA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Broken door bin was just replaced with new one.

Lower pan frame: Had to disassemble old frame as new one did not include any connected parts including glass top, central drawer sliders, humidifier sliders etc. All these had to be pried, jimmied, yanked off old frame and put onto new frame. This was a pure guessing game and it would have helped to have some instructions or guidance. Thankfully I didn't manage to break any of the parts as I was prying them off.

As a note, we had to replace the lower pan frame because the side drawer sliders broke soon after purchase. The plastic is cheap and the drawers cannot handle too much weight.

Replace ice maker

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

New ice maker only used 2 screws and the old one had 3. This was no problem. The old ice maker had already been removed. Just loosen the 3 screws and unplug the cord to ice maker. Only problem with ice maker was with the cord, which I had to use the supplied adapter. It was too long and in the way when reinstalling the ice bin. The ice bin had a small notch area on the bottom left. I used a plastic tie to bundle the cord into the notch. Carefully placed ice bin and no problem. The first part I received was damaged and was replaced 2 days later by a brand new part. Customer service charged for the replacement part but said they would credit my charge card within 2 to 3 weeks for the damaged part. Its been a week and if they follow thru like the said I woild give Part Select 5 Stars for service and Parts.

Rails on the lower pan frame snapped off.

There were no directions provided. Several pieces had to be removed from the broken frame and reinstalled on the new frame. Comparing the new frame to the old frame provided a road map for what parts had to reused and transferred. As all the parts are plactic, this had to be done carefully so as to avoid damaging the plastic during removal and installation. The only tool required was a screw driver which was used to pry the needed parts off the old frame.

Everything looked to be working but the compressor. As a pro checked every thing came down to a relay on the main board.

Just removed cover from back top left. marked and removed all wires. removed old board and installed new board very easy. Must read paper sent with it,
you may need to cut wires on some models.

Ice maker ot making ice

First I replaced the double valve because the ice maker was not filling with water. It still did not work. Then I replaced the ice maker itself. This worked and was relatively easy to replace. I had to use the water fill "slide" from the old ice maker. The new one was too narrow and it leaked water into the freezer.

refrigerator and freezer would not cool down.

First, we called Sears Repair and had a technician come to our home. He stated the motherboard had gone bad probably due to a power surge (we had no surge protector on the appliance). His price for repair was $465.00. We opted to go online for the part and found it for $165.00 through PartSelect.com. It was a very simple procedure of removing the old and installing the new. A few turns with the nut driver to uncover the part, a few tugs with the pliers to disconnect and voila!.. The fridge was back to cooling in no time.

Removed shelf assmbly from the refrigerator, slid the draw out and removed the left side slide assembly. The most difficult part of the repair was removing the the air flow lever from the slide assembly. Once thelever was out it slid easily into the slide assembly and then the slide assembly simply snapped into place on the shelf bracket. Took approximately5 minutes to repair.

The repair is a little tricky since %95 of refrigerator parts are plastic and snap into function. Removal of parst attached to old tray was slow and cautious not to break. I cut out needed piece from not needed.

But in the end broke on small part (not worth replacing).

The ordered part arrived within days quoted - thanks.
part used is not as described above.

Removed the back cover over the control board, and made sure that the board was the same. It didn't look exactly the same, but figured that it was the same, just updated. Took out the board, moved the wires to the new board and reinstalled. Plugged it in and it came on, so I reinstalled the cover. Seems to be working to this day.

I removed the board, unplugged all the sockets, took the new board, plugged in all the sockets, and replaced the new board into the refrigerator. I was to applaud this business. I was first able to diagnose the problem by finding this site, then one of the customers explained how to fix the problem ourselves. It save us at least $100. The $25 overnight shipping fee was well worth it. We could have lost $100's of dollars worth of food.
