Simply popped the new end caps into place with the old guard and now it is tight and secure. Easy Peasy. Of course all this is after the operator at PartSelect ordered the right part for me; I had ordered the freezer door end cap, not what I wanted. I received the correct part the very next morning. Returning the wrong part was a breeze too.

The refrigerator wasn't cold enough.

I removed the plastic shroud on the ceiling of the refigerator, unscrewed and unplugged the old defrost timer, and replaced it with the new one. I reinstalled the shroud with the new timer installed.

Cooling coils would ice up and fridge would warm up

  • Customer: Richard from Tehachapi CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

I removed the shelves in the freezer, took out the five 1/4" screws and lifted off the cover. It was a simple matter of using a blow drier to remove all the ice, then unplugging the two wires and unclipping the thermostat from the upper cooling tube. Then clipped the new one on and reconnecting the two wires.

Works great!!!

MY FREEZER WAS FROSTING UP, MY ICE MAKER WAS NOT WORKING ,AND MY FRIDGE WAS WARM.

HAD TO REMOVE ALL SCREWS ON REAR BACK COVER OF FREEZER INSIDE, UNPLUGGED REFRIDGERATOR, UNCLIPED THERMOSTAT, UNPLUGED THERMOSTAT. REPLACED THERMOSTAT WITH NEW ONE IN THE SAME LOCATION, AND LET DEFROST FULLEY. REASSEMBLED, PLUGED IN, AND TESTED. ALL WAS GOOD. BUT I DID ALSO REPLACE TIMER AT FIRST PART OF THE REPAIR SO I SUGGEST YOU REPLACE BOTH AT THE SAME TIME.

Freezer fine, fridge too hot!

Removed the back panel in freezer compartment with the nut-driver. Then I cut off old thermostat connections, and spliced in new thermostat connections (repairman had already replaced defrost timer, and said not to trust connectors included on wires-they failed often). Then I snapped thermostat itself onto cooler coil. So far so good, fridge is running at 35-40 degrees a week later. Thanks Parts-Select!!!

removed freezer door and installed the new one. This was a pretty easy thing to do, although putting the old handle on the new door was a challenge. No knowing that there is a plastic piece holding the top of the handle i broke the that piece and had to order another one. Mean while the freezer was making alot of frost inside, so that had to be cleaned after the new part came.

I want to start by saying that I am female and want to let all females know that we can do home repairs! My story is not just about the repair but the wonderful customer service at PartsSelect.com. I have used them MANY times to order missing parts for appliances (I own rental property and tenants are always "losing" or breaking appliance parts). This particular time was the first time I received an incorrect part...not sure if it was my ordering or the wrong part was shipped. I contacted PartsSelect.com by email and got a REAL response within 24 hours. The customer service person who responded, immediately credited my account and "found" the correct part to order and less than 48 hours after my first email to them, my new part is already on it's way! I know it will only take minutes to finish my repair and am really impressed with their response time and professionalism when there is a problem. As a rental property owner, I will continue to use and recommend PartSelect.com.

first fresh food too hot, then freezer too hot

Based on the website I decided it was most probably the defrost timer, and that was correct. I ordered it, watched the video, and two days later the part was at my door. Took the nut driver, removed 4 screws, then removed the old defrost timer, installed the new one, re-installed the whole plastic assembly with the four screws, and done!!! Couldn't have been easier.

The original support was broken, tried epoxy and it only held for a few months before breaking again

  • Customer: Arand from Yorktown IN

  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
All I had to do was remove the original support that was on the inside wall of the refrigerator, which I had to use pliers since there were broken pieces, and then I just snapped the new one into the three holes provided for this support. The crisper drawer works fine now. It literally only took about 1 minute.
