unplugged frig, removed shelves & inner lower back panel in freezer side, removed defrost thermostat from tube, cut the wires and spliced in new stat wires with provided wire splices crimped together and replaced thermostat on tube it has been a week and no ice so far??. this was after 2 trips by the repairman who replace the defrost timer board which was most likely good at a total of $160!!! still cheaper than $1000 for a new frig!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Took out the ice box, dumped the ice. Let warm up a bit. Then took out the housing and installed the new one. Works great. Saved a lot of money! Only took a couple days to receive the part. Great service.

I turned off the water, removed the cardboard cover from the back of the refrigerator; removed the 2 screws holding the water valve in place; unscrewed the plastic tubing from the valve; unplugged the wires to each solenoid (3); the old valve had threaded connections for the plastic water lines, the new valve didn't; I had to cut the ferrel off of the plastic lines so I could insert them into the new valve and then press the connector into the valve (I didn't anticipate something like this, but it worked fine); I reconnected the wiring and screwed the valve back into place. The ice maker started making ice and the water stopped dripping from the dispenser. The best $65 I've ever spent.

Refrigerator warm, but freezer slightly cold

The website said 60% of people with same refrigerator problem solved the problem with a new fan kit. I received the fan kit within 3 days of ordering. Was shipped from Fresno, CA to Long Beach, WA. The fan kit was to be installed behind rear panel in the freezer compartment. When I removed the old fan motor, I noticed the shaft turned harder than the new fan motor, suggesting a problem with the old fan motor. I plugged in the obvious fan motor power bundle with no problem. The instructions and diagram with the kit nearly steered me wrong. Instructions, diagram and splices with the kit instructed to cut the "extra" wire bundle and splice "similar" wires (should have said same color wires). Luckily, I ignored those instructions when I remembered the U-Tube video depicted the extra wire bundle was to be inserted into a factory penetration in the back panel, facing the freezer compartment. This power bundle is for adding an ice maker, which my refrigerator did not have. When reassembled and the refrigerator restarted, I could immediately feel forced air in the refrig, where there was no flow before fixing. I observed that all the refrig and freezer dials do is act like a valve to increase or decrease air flow to the compartments. The dials have no mechanical or electrical connections, just designed to divert air flow from across the cold 'evaporator' fins. I recommend other consumers to remember carefully what they see in the video and watch again if stumped during the job. The video was better than the instructions which may have been written in China or India. I am happy. Repair was a lot cheaper than a new refrigerator and I would not have bought another Frigidaire. Thanks to this website. r. andersen

I followed the directions, unpluged the refridgerator, turned off the water. The ice maker did not appear to be functioning. I turned everything off again and disconnected, inspected the connection, and installed it again.......decided to wait and after about-1hr.the first ice cubes fell out.....works fine now...

followed the video and had little or no trouble loosening or tightening bolts or phillips head screws. The only difficulty was removing the spacer on the door itself. Otherwise a piece of cake. Good video and easy to follow instructions.

Freezer leaked, no water disp. & Crusher didnt crush

First I defrosted the entire unit, both sides for 24 hours. Restarted, I now have water dispensing. (It had apparently frozen) Next I took out the ice crushing part and took it apart, (a few screws) by removing the broken floppy piece; the small plastic floppy door that allows ice to crush, replaced this small piece, rather than replacing the entire big plastic piece that I ordered. Used a slot screw driver removed the old floppy piece that was broken and removed the same piece from the new one and switched them out. Reassembled the entire unit (a few screws), put the ice back in and it works great. I got the instructions for taking apart this from this site, however, it was fairly easy to figure out. Just be patient with the plastic parts.

I followed the instructions by the repairman via the QT movie. It was one of the easiest jobs I've ever done. The repairman's method and the photography was perfect.

The repair was not really a repair at all, but just a replacement that automatically snaps on. The impressive thing was how easily I was able to locate the part and how quickly it arrived to my home. My husband, who works for a major department in our local city government said he really couldn't believe it and especially at the price we paid. He was so impressed that he took the name of the site down so that he could use it to order from in a pinch. Thanks so much! Great site.
