I read the instructions/comments on partselect.com and go to work. I removed the spill tray, then three screws. This allowe me to pull the faceplate of the ice and water actuators forward.
After a little adjusting I could see the two screws which were holding the actuator in place.
I had to be careful here a the comments listed the ease in dropping these smailler screws. I magnteized my screwdriver before attempting.
I undid the screws, and removed the actuator. The new one was easy to put into place. I simple then reveresed the process which I had folled to get here and voice, less than 15 minutes a new water actuator.

I first ordered the part as a Frigidaire and when it came in it seemed wrong. Then I realized the refrigerator was manufactured by Electrolux, so I went on their (your) site and ordered the plate which was pictured. It came in correct as I could see. I asked to return the first part to Frigidaire and they gave me credit. When I removed the door, I realized I needed both parts the plate and the door closer cam. It took very little time. I called on the Frigidaire part to have them cancel the credit card charge back but it had been done at noon that day. I offered to pay for the part but the lady said she had no way to accomplish that. I told her I was sorry that I had caused the confusion. Ordering from them as well as your organization has been very easy and a pleasant experance.
Thanks.

Water leaking from under fridge

  • Customer: elizabeth from huntington, WV
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

This is an easy repair. Unplug appliance. Remove the old water valve by unscrewing it from the frame of the refrigerator. Disconnect the cables and all the water hoses. The hose fittings are a different type: clip off the old connectors from the hose ends and push the hoses straight into the new connectors till they fit solidly. Reconnect the cables and screw the valve back onto the frame of the refrigerator.
Unfortunately, my leak was from a hose, not the valve, so this didn't actually fix it.

Door made "klunking" noise and would no longer swing closed on its own.

With a screwdriver, remove the hinge cover-plate on the top of the door. This reveals the two nut-driven screws that hold th top hinge-plate: remove while children/wife/neighbor/butler/out-of-work-political consultant hold the door. Take out the screw on the Bearing plate and replace with new. (I replaced, but kept the old one. Like to replace parts that ride on each other in pairs, even if there is no noticable wear. Next, take the old Bearing-hinge from the bottom of the door that whomever is holding. Needle-Nose Pliers might be handy if your bearing-hinge is also shredded. Re-assemble being careful to place the bottom hinge into the Bearing without catching or scoring the Bearing hinge. Don't want to do this again in six monthes.
While I was under there with the base/bottom plate removed, I noticed the dust and crud and vaccumed after replacing the door.

Cracked bearing-hinge (PS429803) on bottom

Thanks to everyone is thread, for the valuable info. Over-all, the whole thing was pretty easy.

Removed one phillips screw holding top cover (top of door).
Removed top cover (about 6" long).
Removed two hex nuts (sorry, I've forgotten the size).
Removed door.
Removed broken (bottom) bearing-hinge.*
Replaced bearing hinge.
Replaced door.
Replaced hex nuts.
Replaced top cover.
Replaced phillips screw.

I wasn't sure how heavy (or rather not heavy) the door was, so I had an additional person stading by (it's not heavy). Extra person was not necessary.

The only thing that made the repair annoying was when I tried removing the cracked bearing-hinge, the top splintered and the bottom half was stuck in the door. I ended up having to dig out the cracked piece with pliers & drill & tiny computer screw-driver & swearing.

Moral of the story is don't crack the top off of the bearing-hing that you're trying remove.

wife broke water dispenser actuator

I had seen technician remove cover for warranty repair. If I had not I would have been in trouble... I removed tray exposing screws, removed screws and lifted off cover. I then pulled off connector to circuit board. I removed the three screws holding the broken dispenser part and removed it. The reverse was easy. The hinge cover was easy since I had learned to slide it forward FIRST (that's when I broke it). The shelf supports were tricky. The old ones would not come out. I sawed them off with a serrated knife and then picked the pieces out. Installing the new ones wasn't going well until I realized that I had to hammer the pegs in. Then they went right in.

Removed cover from top bracket with phillips sd. removed bracket with socket wrench; lifted door from hinge; removed remnants of old hinge from recess, this took a while because it had broken inside, eventually I used needle nose pliers to break it up and pull it out in three parts; installed new bearing hinge; reset door, and installed bracket and cover.

Actuator broke off

I noted this repair as easy and it is if you know what you are doing. I read the repair stories on line and thought I would give it a whirl. I ordered the part on line and in my haste I didn't even consider that I would need to order by color. I have a black appliance. To my dismay when the part came it was white. While waiting for the part I had attempted to find the small screws that would allow me to get to the repair site as described in the sucessful repair stories. There was no screws visible. The water pan on my model does not come out and there didn't seem to be any way to get to the actuator without prying off the ice and water portion of the frig. I was afraid to take a screwdriver to my frig as I didn't want to scratch it up . I decided to just call a repair man. He came with the black actuator. I returned the white actuator. The repair took about 15 min. He popped off the front which I was afraid to try and took out the three tiny screws and replaced the part. The total charge was $167.00. $75.00 of the charge was for diagnosis even thought I told that no diagnosis was needed. Part cost was $19.99 and th rest was labor.

Just a firm twist on the covering and insert new filter. This is the second time in 2 weeks that I have ordered parts from PartSelect. The best service I have ever had. Recieved parts the next day.
