Removed/replaced ice maker and valve per enclosed instructions. If you can service your own lawn mower this R&R should be easy for you.

Refrigerator is not getting cold while freezer remained operational

I unplugged the refrigerator(for safety). Using a 1/4" nut driver I removed 1 screw holding ice tray rack. I then removed the 2 screws holding the lower shroud inside the freezer section. I then removed 1 screw holding cover plate where ice maker would be and disconnected the ground wire from the back panel. I then removed the 2 screws holding the back panel in place. This allowed me to removed back panel from from inside the freezer. I removed the fan blades from evaporator motor by pulling straight away from motor. I was then able to disconnect the power wires and the ground wire from evaporator motor. Using the 1/4" nut driver I removed the 2 screws holding the front motor bracket and removed the evaporator motor from its bracket housing. Using the an electrical cord that i had fashioned with two female spade connectors on each lead of the wire, i connected these to the motor and plugged the male end of the electrical cord into a standard 110v outlet to verify that the motor was in fact the defective component. The motor did not operate so I replaced the evaporator motor with a new motor and put everything back in reverse order. The refrigerator is running like a champ and keeping the refrigerator contents a cool 42 degrees. Thanks PartSelect.com

Auto defrost not working

Followed a youtube diagnostic video on a whirlpool fridge with the same configuration. After determining that the problem was the thermostat I ordered the part from parstselect. I was pleasantly surprised by both the fair shipping price and the 2 day arrival. Replacement was as simple. Cut the old wires, wire nut the new ones. Wire colors are the same on my old unit and the replacement, but these generally aren't polarized anyways.

Water was running into refrig from freezer and ice cream was soft

We wasted time looking for the electrical schematic on our refrigerator (the first step in the instructions). By skipping that and reading further in the instructions, the type of cooling that the refrigerator has can easily be determined by the colors of the wires that go to the defrost timer. You need to know this to set up the timer properly for your specific refrigerator. Had I just started there, the entire repair would have taken less than 10 minutes. Very simple repair and it works like a charm, no more water coming into the refrigerator and the ice cream is rock hard. Glad we didn't have to spend lots on a new appliance. Thanks Part Select.com!

no ice maker at all

We had a refrigerator that had no ice maker at all, but it had the wiring behind the freezer panel and the wiring for the solenoid valve at the bottom of the refrigerator. The installation went easy for me, but I do not think the average homeowner could handle it. There are always little variations from model to model so some of the diagrams were not quite the same as my unit. But all the necessary parts and hardware were there and the install went fine. its crabnking out perfect ice like crazy.

The defrost timer that I ordered form you did the trick. My fridge was
running all the time and the fridge temp was 55 but the freezer was 10
below. The instructions did not say how to test the old one to compare with
the new on. However in the Readers Digest Home Repair book it did and the
test proved that it was defective. Your article said that with the system I
had, 65% on the time it was the timer. I ordered it and thank you it works
just fine. I do have another problem, maybe you can help. The fridge runs
for 6 minuets and stays off for 10 minuets. The temp in the freezer is 0
and the fridge is 35-40 on the warmest settings, but all is well.
Thank you

Need to replace a broken icemaker

  • Customer: Jill from MARIETTA GA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set

Rather than pay a repairman an assessment fee, then the cost of the repair to the existing icemaker, I decided to replace the icemaker for a lot less. The Add On Icemaker kit came with installation instructions. The kit included the ice maker, as well as the hose and water feed control on the back. Originally, I was nervous about attempting to replace the icemaker. I watched a video on YouTube about replacing an icemaker and saw how easy it could be. Following the enclosed directions, and Wow!, it was extremely easy to remove and add the new icemaker. Don't pay to have someone else do it! This is a no-brainer.

not cooling could hear a clicking noise

  • Customer: Deborah from Elkton MD
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

With the help of the website I was able to verify that the part I removed (in the area of the clicking sound) was probably the part required for replacement. I ordered it, installed it... IT WORKS (I knew it the moment I plugged in the power cord and heard the compressor kick on). Saved me from buying a new fridge or calling a repairman. I'm a 58 year old woman with no appliance experience. I watched the videos and installed the part without any trouble. Thank you PartSelect for your easy to use website instructions and helpful hints.

Both light bulbs had been replaced, but lights did not turn on.

  • Customer: Richard from Arlington MA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I tried to remove the old light switch using a putty knife and a hammer. It was hard to compress the plastic tabs to pull it back through the hole, but all of a sudden, the lights came on. I guess banging on the switch freed-up the contacts. The new switch is now a spare part in case I need it.
