Had to "bump" the thermostat enclosure to get Fridge to cycle ON and OFF

  • Customer: Donald from Mapleton IL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

It's easy IF you have a 1/4" nut driver that is not too FAT. My first driver WAS too fat and it would not fit up the narrow plastic tunnel to reach the screw, and the screw has no slot so you can't use a screwdriver. The part shipped without directions, but on-line HELP explained everything clearly. I panicked at first because the Fridge did NOT kick on immediately after turning the new thermostat ON. There must be some sort of "waiting period" in the compressor that doesn't allow quick recycling. That scared me, so I re-installed the OLD thermostat, and it worked, so I re-installed the NEW unit, waited a few minutes, and it turned on and has worked flawlessly now for several days.

I simply took the glass cover from the package. It came packaged really well. Thank You so much for that! I was concerned about breakage. Once it was released for packaging, I simply slipped it into place in the refrigerator. It was very easy.

Icemaker not making ice

  • Customer: William from Centennial CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

Had a 1999 Kitchenaid Superba refrigerator that quit making ice. Based on online research, my icemaker's problem could have been either the icemaker itself or the dual water valve. I opted to try the icemaker replacement first after watching the helpful installation video. The only issue I had that made the repair the slightest bit difficult was that bolt-headed screws were used to secure the icemaker to the fridge wall rather than Phillips and the one nearest the door can't be seen while trying to loosen it. It only took an extra ten minutes to overcome this obstacle (maybe 20 minutes total). After replacing the icemaker, I thought the water valve must have been the problem after all since the unit did not immediately start filling with water. However, once the unit chilled down, it worked perfectly.

Found the replacement icemaker I needed on your web site,ordered and recdeived it within 2 days. Watched the how to video and did the replacement in less than 5 minutes.However,I waited(2 days) for the icemaker to start working, it never did. Thinking there was another problem in the icemaking system, I contacted a local appliance repair shop. They checked the entire system and everything was ok except the new icemaker. Turns out the new icemaker was defective. I contacted PartSelect and reported the technicians findings. I had another new icemaker in 2 days again. I again installed the new one and am now making ice. Thank you for the installation video and the teriffic service.

Removed the old one. The new one had a power chord attached but it did not connect to the wire in the freezer. I saw it could be unplugged from the new ice maker and the power chord from the freezer plugged right in. Once installed, was not sure it worked but after a few hours it filled with water and started making ice. Works great now.

I have a side by side so the space to work in was limited but I still completed the install in about 30 minutes. Unplugged the refrigerator then loosened the top two screws took out the bottom screw lifted the ice maker out just far enough to disconnect the power cord reversed the procedure. plugged it back in started making ice in 30 minutes. Probably would have not have taken that long my MS slowed me down a little. The repair man was going to be $300.00 plus $$75.00 trip charge what I paid was $128.41 that was with 3 day shipping.
