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.

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

  • Customer: Alex from HILLIARD OH
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

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!

Very easy repair. Remove 2 screws, unplug wire harness. My model used the included harness adapter. I needed to secure the extra harness length with the included cable ties. Icemaker went back in smoothly with no problems. Making ice like crazy now.

I watched your video on how to do the procedure and followed it, step-by-step. It worked like a charm. When I took the crisper drawer and runner out of the refrigerator, I noticed that the lower drawer support had broken as well. So, I have ordered 4 to have a few on hand and will repeat the process when my new order arrives. I'm very pleased! Thank you very much.

The defrost thermostat kit is located in the freezer side of the refrigertor. I turned off the electrical breaker for the refrigerator. I began the project by removing all the frozen food on the lower half of the freezer. I removed the racks and 3 rails on both sides using a cordless drill with a 1/4" socket and located panel. The panel had 4 1/4" screws holding it to the back of the freezer. I removed all screws and the panel came out easy. I located the defrost thermostat and with some wire cutters, I cut the wires. I connected the the new defrost thermostat with wire connectors and reattached it to the copper tube I removed it from. I put the panel back on along with the side rails and racks.. This project was very easy.

the crisper support had broken during cleaning

Followed the video instructions and it took less than 10min. The part I used worked fine even though it was not the correct one for the location. There are 4 supports: 2 at the front and 2 at the rear and they have different shapes. The one that was broken was one of the front ones and the parts I ordered turned out to be for the rear. In any case it worked fine. The front part is called crisper cover support - PS2358880. The video repair is one of the best repair tools I have seen. I have not replaced the filter yet but I am familiar with the procedure and the video is of great value.

I followed the instructional video and it went well except the piece in the door did not pop out easily and broke into other fragments. I had to use a needle-nose pliers to remove them from the cavity in the door.
