Over a period of weeks I watched my fridge grand to a halt. It was...saddening. I felt helpless, there was nothing I could do and I wasn't prepared to pull in a repairman. Upon it's departure from being affective (broke) I made up my mind to purchase a new one!! Flash-forward five minutes n the internet ...motivator by high costs, I altered my thinking and visited You Tube for a fix-it video. After a quick search I came across a clip that took me to the heart of the problem. It was THAT easy. Wow!! I followed the instructions and quickly learned the failure had to do with a small, light weight fan that's role was to pull heat from the condenser--it had ceased to work. While waiting for the part, I let a small fan blow on the condenser to dissipate the heat. The fridge roared to life!! Like a charm!! When the new fan body arrived I placed the blade from the old fan on it and installed it (the fan did not come with bolts and the holes were not threaded) using sheet metal screws. It immediately came started performing again and has been doing a superb job ever since. I easily saved $800 in costs going this route!!

Fan was barely rotating. So unplugged, removed back cover, removed fan and motor from frame work. Removed fan blade from motor shaft. Spun motor shaft which seemed fine. Pryed off back cover of motor to find a large but dry felt washer and a helical capillery slot formed into the motor shaft for carring oil from felt washer to the bearings. Added 30 wt motor oil and some 3in1 oil to felt and reassembled motor, fan and frame work. Plugged in power chord after getting rid of dust and dog hear on coils and is working like new.

Failed cooling fan

The repair was simple. Unplug the refrigerator, unplug the power connector from the fan and remove 3 screws. I removed the fan blade clip with the pliers and cleaned it off. Reversed the process, cleaned all the dust out with my shop vac and all works perfectly now. It took longer to pull the fridge out of it's normal position than to perform the repair. Every day it continues to work is one more day I don't spend $2000 or more on a replacement.

Protective cover for bulb had melted

I tried to just replace the cover rather than the whole unit but it was impossible - the cover would not go/stay on. I tried to remove the old unit completely but it would not unplug it was practically fused to the back of the fridge and the liner was cracking. I ended up breaking the cover and jerry rigging it over the bulb to prevent items in the fridge from being able to touch. Bad solution.

The video of the repair that was on your website was extremely helpful. It showed in detail how to replace the parts item by item. I could not have done it correctly without the video. I believe anyone could have replaced these parts with your instruction video.

We used the video out on YouTube to show us how to replace the drum. It made the repair go so fast that we were amazed that two klutzes could do this repair! Remove the screws that hold the housing together. Place the screws in a cup to keep everything together. Remove the spiral unit and the plastic sleeve. The hardest part was removing the auger nut on the assembly. Just remember it is a left hand turn. After that, remember sequence of the blade assembly. The video suggested that you take a picture and that would help remembering the sequence of the blades. Follow the video!

First of all when deciding where to order part from I could have saved a couple of bucks on another site but I chose PartSelect because of the video showing exactly how to install the part. When installing the new part it went in exactly as described. Part seems sturdy. Ice bin now works like new again. Hopefully it will last at least as long as the original. Part was good, delivery was quick. I will look here again if I need more parts for any appliance.

Before purchasing the part, I watched the ParSelect installation video. The video gave me the insight as to my ability to replace the part and the correctness of the part for my ice bin. The video made it extremely easy and quick to replace the auger drum (propeller looking thing that pushes out the ice).

ordered a new auger after tearing it apart I found I needed a drum. Thought this might be too much work so I went to Lowes for a new ice maker they sold me the wrong one said the didnt have one & I needed to order, they sent the wrong part. So I ordered the drum from you. So her is a pile of parts that has been settin there for a week. The secret was the video Great Job everything works & I tell everyone how smart I am with your help. THANKS
