Water leaking and freezing everywhere. Weird shaped ice cubes, more like chunks which jambed the dispenser.

First removed the two screws that holds the old ice maker in place. Unplugged it. The freezer compartment was too narrow to allow the unit to slide out or turn in any other direction. Had to also remove the two front screws from the left side ice bin track and swing it down. The door opening was also too tight. Scratched the plastic door jamb putting the new unit in but other than that all is well and functioning well.

The first and most important step was to diagnose the problem. To do this I found the Parts Select website and the part I thought was the problem. The previous repairs stories helped me to pin point the problem. The mother board came within a couple of days. All I had to do was take the back plate/guard off, unplug the connectors in the back, unclip the mother board and then do the reverse over again. The only problem was the ground wire. I had to take the one off that came with the part and switch it out with the old one, because it would not connect to my refrigerator. This was fairly simple and in about 30 min. I was done and had our refrigerator back. Luckily we had another in the garage as a back up so we didn't loose any food.

Thanks Parts Select

Will not defrost

The replacement part went in quite easily and quickly. The instructions sent with the part was pretty self explanatory. I have also replaced the defroster element, the defrost thermostat and now the main control board. After having done all this the thing is still freezing up. After disassembling the whole freezer section I found yet another temperature sensor (Also known as Thermistor). I'll replace this part next and if it still freezes up you'll be able to find it sitting on the curb. Thrown enough money at this ten year old fridge and a new one will be in order. Thanks Parts Select for reasonably priced parts, the posts to help with the repair and the fast shipping.

First i removed two screws that holds the ice maker in, unplug the plug to the ice maker. I was able to remove the old one. Place the new one in screwed in the two screws and pluged in the plug and in just a little while i had ice again. I am a women, if i can do it any one can. I had a repair man tell me it was going to be $250.00 dollars to replace it. I got on line ordered the ice maker and had it in 4 days. Very fast shipping and easy to install.

I took the 3 screws off the cover that is in the back of the appliance, unpluged the plugs that attached to the circuit board pressed the 4 plastic pins that held the old board. Then I snapped the new board in place and pluged the plugs back into the new board. They will only go on one way so you cannot get the plug in the wrong place, Job done appliance works fine. thanks

Warm Interior - Evaporator (inside) fan failed

  • Customer: Jeffrey from Downingtown PA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I found this failure at midnight, was able to determine loss of voltage at J2 Pin 3 to 4, causing the fan failure. Jumpering with a staple from Pin 5 to 4 allowed the evap fan to run from the condensor fan supply for the few days waiting for the part. Not pretty, but it saved the food. Running like that forced the evap fan to high speed, so I had to set the thermostats lower (higher temp)

1. To un-mount the board, use needle nose to gently squeeze plastic bayonets one at a time and lift that corner clear.
2. Mark each connector J1, J3, J4, J2, J5 to match the mark on the old board
3. Gently work each connector off, replace board, and re-land each connector. The new board will have a ground wire. Just trap the lug under the upper left cover plate screw..

Very simple fix by replacing the mother board. Your "how to" video made the repair even easier. The appliance repair estimate was over $400. I saved over $200. I already recommended your site to several other people. Thanks for making it so easy

HAD TO DEFROST THE FREEZER TO MELT OFF ALL THE ICE BEFORE SERVICING. ONCE THAT WAS DONE THE ICEMAKER REPLACEMENT ONLY TOOK ABOUT 15-30 MINUTES TO COMPLETE. tHE NEW ICEMAKER CAME WITH MANY ACCESSORIES AND ADAPTORS THAT WERE NOT NEEDED AND THE INSTRUCTIONS WERE BASED ON REPLACING AN OLDER MODEL AND NOT REALLY CLEAR FOR MY MODEL. THEY MENTIONED NOT BEING ABLE TO USE THE NEW STRIPPER BUT IT WAS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE OLD ONE SO I LEFT THE NEW ONE IN PLACE. ALL IN ALL IT WAS EASY AND DID THE JOB.

Noticed ice and water through door stopped working. Then a pulsing of the ice/water led then stopped running and cooling. Six years old

Unplug the refrigerator from the wall plug and take the plate off of the circuit board in the back of the refrigerator. Remove the screws holding the board in place. Remove the board by pinching the little white pins holding the board inplace. Disconnect the wires from the circuit board and install the new board in its place. Notice the wire prongs so that they are connected the same as they were on the previous board. Replace the screws that hold the cover. Plug it in. If it does not turn on, remove the plug from the wall and re insert it. The new board has to reset itself.

Frost on back panel and frig and freezer would get warm.

I wouldn't have had a clue without your video. After the part was delivered, which was only in two days, I watched the video. The man explained everything perfectly, making our "fix" a breeze. It was great, I stood over my husband's shoulder, while he sat on the floor and told him what to do step by step. It couldn't have been easier. You guys are awesome!
