i had used your web site before and i read several problems that your readers had. i went to the back of the unit, removed the bottom cover and right there the i found the run capacitor and i chaged it. since i had only ordered this part to save money i went back and ordered the Start Device which when i took it off it was completely burned. the replacement part came labeled with 2 different compressor #, so i picked the one that i had and unpluged each wire. the part may differ from the one that it's in the unit but it worked when i pluged everything back on. it also helps to take a picture of everything before removing the wires in case you have to leave it and come back later. i hope to use this refrigerator another 10 years. thank you all for your help.

The hardest part of the repair was how to remove the panel the part was behind. Once we figured out where it was (behind the temperature controls in the front of the refrigerator), it was very easy to take out the old & install the new. Works perfect now.

Inserted the glass shelf into position - very easy. Replaced the broken door handle. Note - the screws that held the handle in place and a plastic insert that covered the screws were not included with the repair parts. Fortunately, I had kept the old ones. Otherwise, the repair was very easy.

Just replaced the switch, but unfortunately that was not the problem; nor was it the bulb....so I am back to square one.
But Parts Select is a great place to order from. Thank you.

I removed the 3 screws that held the handle on refrigerator, then cleaned up the grime before putting on the new handle, which fit perfectly. The only complaint I have was there were no new screws with the handle. I am a single woman and this was a very easy project for me. I am very satisfied with the product, and with the fast delivery.

The good news is that the part (the wheel was available.) I bought two in the event that the other wheel may break in the future. The bad news is that the housing that holds the wheel was riveted together by the wheel axle. It would have been nice to know that before I bought the part and if the housing with the wheel installed was available. The refrigerator was at my summer house a hundred miles away. Anyway, we had to grind the end of the riveted axle to dislodge it from the wheel housing. With the axle dislodged from the housing we were able to install the wheel and then hammer the end of the axle flat to keep in place, like the original rivet installation. It is not perfect but it held and should be fine. I am glad I was able to get the part and will be back in the future, if in need of other parts.

just cleaned it and put in place. I was really impressed as to how fast it was sent to me. I broke it on Nov. 1 and placed the order that afternoon and received the new glass on Saturday Nov. 3. I really appreciated that as I never expected it until the following week. Thank you for the fast service!
