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.

Due to age the sliding flanges on the sides were broken and had been glued just one to many times.

Needless to say sliding the new draw in did not take a wizard. But I was amazed at the ease of finding the part onb your web site and the promptness of shipping. Will definitely use you again if need be.

Need to replace a broken icemaker

  • Difficulty: Really easy

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.

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.

After receiving the new part almost immediately,using two screw drivers, removed the broken switch from the plastic frame. Be careful not to scratch or otherwise tear the plastic...very pliable. Since the original switch was factory installed and the wires were packed in fiberglass insulation, the switch came out but the wires and clips were still in place and could not reach the new switch. It was necessary to pull them down with bent long nose pliers...used a lot of "pull" but the wires held up.Connected the switch, turned the power on and there was light! Reports from other users really took the uncertainty out of the task.

The repair was very simple! And the website was also easy and accurate to use! I put the new rail in after taking out the glass shelf ( just like you do when you clean it) and snapped in the new piece. Voila! sliding drawers again.

Unplugged the refrigerator and then unloaded the freezer. removed the panel at the back of the freezer to expose the fan. Carefully unclipped the wiring harness and then removed the fan motor. Swapped the fan from the old motor to the new one (I did use a hair drier to warm the plastic fan to make it easier to remove) and reassembled the fan and panel. Simple and easy, and now the refrigerator works just like new.

Refrigerator not cooling, fan not working

After removing two rear plastic panels, (very easy). The fan is easily accessable. Two more screws to remove the fan brace and remove three wires from the fan and its out. Reverse the process and its finished. The propellor is not part of the fan motor order and you can remove the old propellor and put on new motor (easy). One step that is not accounted for is the removal of a flexable plastic "nut" on the fan shaft. This piece holds and connects the fan to the fan brace. You will understand this when you compare the new fan with the old and see the plastic "nut" sleeve on the old fan. Simply pull it off and put on new motor shaft (it simply slides on and off the shaft).
