I watched the Utube video, repeated the process at home while awaiting the part, and installed the flapper door in about 15 minutes after it arrived--piece of cake. The hardest part was removing the escutcheon plate on the front of the freezer door. I figured out I could slide a putty knife under it and the rest of the project was completed in no time at all.

Googled how to replace the door seal, ordered parts and replaced the door seal flapper. The video on partselect was not correct for this GE model. However a simple diagran showed you simply remove the control panel directly (pops off) to provide access to the panel. Remove the 4 screws holding the panel, replace the door seal, and reassemble.

Looked at the instructional video and read previous customer comments. Didn't have to dissassemble rear of freezer door. Access through the front once trim ring and circuit board removed. Could not have done it with out the video/and or previous customer comments. Part was shipped and received immediately. Repairs complete! No more frost developing and plugging ice chute! I especially appreciate the customer comments on how to complete this repair!

The flapper on the ice chute was curled up and not creating a good seat, so the chute kept clogging up with frozen condensation, especially during the humid summer months. The online video made it so easy to replace the part myself. I was able to fix the problem in under 15 minutes and at a fraction of the price!

Disassembled the ice dispenser which became difficult because of very rusted screw heads. After I got dispenser apart, I had to go to a local hardware store to try to find replacement screws. Apparently, appliance screws are specialty items and I had to purchase the screws that most closely matched. I also had to purchase a ice dispenser door solenoid locally since I already had the dispenser all apart and I wanted to complete this job. The solenoid was very rusted as well and not functioning properly. It also took awhile to clean the rust stains off of the dispenser parts. If screws could be purchased along with the new parts that would have been very helpful and stainless screws would end the rusting screw heads issue but not the rusting door solenoid. All good at the end of the day with the sticking dispenser door repaired. Later, I replaced the dual water valve assembly because water was dripping on the ice maker components causing the ice maker to quit working and water was dripping into the bin as well. Replaced valve and that went well but, I still have water dripping on to the ice maker components. I will give it a couple of days to see if it stops and if it does not I will contact PartSelect.com.

I followed the video instructions to the letter and it was very easy and a total success. I believe I would have had problems but for thr video demonstration which was very clear and straight forward in a simple manner. Thanks for the prompt delivery of the part and the help installing it.

Popped off the front frame and front of mother board. unscrewed the assembly to be able to lift up to get to flapper. Lifted it up out of the the way ( wires are attached so it may take one other person to hold it up out of the way). Pop out the old flapper and replace with new one. Easy !

Hardest part was removing the escutcheon around the ice maker on the door. Used a putty knife to find first clip pullout than the rest was easy. Disconnecting plugs from circuit board not as easy as looks, broke one locking clip have to be more careful when lifting the small clips. Once done than removed plastic casing and and easily removed the flapper and replaced with new one. Since I didn't know what I would encounter I ordered a spring and the arm that holds the flapper. I pre- assembled the parts and had it ready to install once I removed the defective part. Whole job under ten minutes...GE service starts at $99.95 just to come and look at it, than parts and labor after that I saved at least $100 dollars. Very easy fix.

It was very hard to remove door front skin

I have a GE Monogram to replace these parts you have to remove the stainless skin front from the freezer door. This is quite difficult and even harder to get back on. Other than the door front it was quite easy. If You can get the stainless on and off every thing else is a breeze. I did it by myself 2 people would help. Thanks and goodluck

upper rear of fridge too cold

  • Customer: Stefan from Middle Island, NY
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I removed the light and cover, then removed the lower vent cover. This required a bit of pinching and pulling. Then I removed the Fresh Food Air Inlet Cover. I looked inside and saw that the flap/dampener was unseated and flopping around. That would explain why all the cold air was coming in from my freezer and freezing the food in my fridge. Replaced old with new, plugged in, reinstalled all covers, and Voila! My fridge is working correctly again. Thanks to the first review which was the one I followed. And Thanks to PartsSelect!

Refrigerator Too Cold- Freezing Food

  • Customer: Dean from Lakeland, TN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I stated this repair to a bit difficult because it is awkward to work on with your head cocked backwards to see while having to lean inside the frig but really its an easy part to replace. The cold air damper was broken where the metal shaft of the electric actuator motor inserts into the hinge side of the damper and allowing the freezer air to over cool the frig. The damper is made of plastic and looks like a small door. I super glued the damper once but the repair only lasted 45-60 days. You would have to take the old part completly apart to see the motor and damper so I would not do this unless you are like me and want to know how things tick. To insatll the new part you need to remove the top 2 shelfs, then remove the lighting section with a phillips screwdriver and let the light fixture hang from the wires. The tricky part is to use a thin flat screwdriver to pry at the seam of the plastic cover at the bottom of the air duct. You cannot see the mounting attachments but behind the air duct cover there are vertical slots that slide and mount onto screws fixed to the back wall of the compartment. If you are not careful the cover can be broken where the slots slide over the mounting screws. The rest of it is pretty much as the instructions decribe. I installed the new part as is with only one cold air opening eventhough there were 3 cold air openings in the old part which the instruction do not address. The extra openings are probably meant for faster recovery once the frig door shuts yet the frige seems to work fine now after a week of operation so I would assume the other openings are not necessary. The new fan motor made a high pitch whining noise so I took the new part out again and replaced the fan motor with the old one which took care of the noise problem. If you do this be careful not to install the old fan motor in backwards or the air will blow in the wrong direction! Other than that the new part fit and works great! Good luck with your repair. -d
