Remove the screws that hold the old valve to the side of the refrigerator. Next, detach each plastic tube and attach that tube to the same place on the new valve, and repeat (there are many valves). Afterward, I realized that many of the plastic tubes had become brittle and had mineral deposits, so I bought additional tubing for ice makers and replaced each tube, one at a time.

Not long after we bought this fridge, the plastic on the light switch cracked, making the lever stick out too much so that the door wouldn't close. It's been taped down ever since. I simply pulled the old switch out and plugged the new one in. I'm kicking myself that I didn't do this ages ago. It was so easy and now I can see inside my refrigerator again.

replaced water valve

The changing of the water valve was pretty straight forward. First shut the water off to the ice maker, then pull the refrigerator out. Once that is done, then I removed the cardboard covering with a cordless drill, loosened the screws that held the water valve in place. The water valve assembly is colored coordinated so disconnecting and reconnecting the lines to the new valve assembly was pretty easy. Reattached the cardboard covering pushed refrigerator back and place turn on supply line and waited for the ice maker to fill up. After several cycles on the ice maker I made one slight adjustment on the ice cube size behind the cover of the ice maker. Total time one hour, then waiting for the ice maker to cycle a few times to ensure all was working properly.

After receiving the parts, I clamped on the connector ends, and put on the shrink tubes. Unplug frig, took out the shelves (4) screws, unscrewed back panel (4) screws. Took old thermostat off tube, clipped (2)wires on old thermostat, splice wires, clamped connector on old wires, moved up shrink tubes, and used a heat gun to shrink the wires. Put new thermostat on the tube the old one came off of, put panel, and the shelves back. Pugged frig in. Works great!

Watched the Parts Select video associated with this part. Very easy repair. Removed the right-hand door, removed the broken hinge, popped in the new part, applied some lubrication and put the door back on. Lengthiest part was removing food items from the door in preparation for the job. Highly recommend watching the video first as it shows you exactly what to do and how easy this job is.

Refrigerator and freezer were not cooling properly

I can fix just about anything, but when I'm approaching to fix an item that I have previously no experience with I always do some research before attempting a repair. Once I diagnosed the problem (The evaporator fan was not kicking on), I purchased both the thermostat and fan because either one of them could be the source as to why the refrigerator was not working. Unless you want to drink room temperature milk for three to four more days, I highly recommend that you replace both. After cleaning out the freezer and removing the pull out bucket, I removed the screws and pulled out the metal enclosure. The fan was easy to take out along with the thermostat. The time consuming part of the repair was splicing the old wiring harness with the new thermostat and condenser fan since the replacement condenser fan had a different wiring harness. I had to heat sink the butt splice connectors and I wrapped all the wires in a cold weather electric tape. After that I plugged the refrigerator right in and to my delight it worked :) I love this website because it is very user friendly accompanied with fast and efficient shipping. Thanks again!

Installed new valve.There are several pieces of tubing coming off of the valve. Pay close attention to where they go. Color coordination is poor on the new valve.
