Rattling Noise from behind frig

Initially, I traced the noise down to the evaporator motor area. I thought it was the fan blade so I ordered and changed it. Noise level better but still not good. Then I ivestigated problem area again. Removed the motor,discoverd that the motor shaft was loose /drifting which caused the "hummm" and uneven fan blade rotation. Orderd and installed new motor and all is good.

Ice Maker stopped working

Realized Ice Maker was not getting water during it's cycle and suspected water valve based on other posts to this web site. My fridge is 9 years old and the tubes connecting the valve were plastic screw on type. The new valve did not have threads to accept the nuts. Turns out all I had to do was cut the nuts off and insert the water tubes into the valve which auto-locked the tubes to the valve. Ice maker now works great.

Pulled out the fridge from the wall, unplugged it, and turned off the water supply. Took off the cardboard backing at the bottom of the fridge. Cleaned the dust and gunk. Unscrewed the old valve. Unplugged the 3 electrical connections. Since the new fittings for the water lines were different, we unscrewed the old ones, lopped off the nipples, and inserted the ends of the water lines into the new connections (they were super easy - just push the line in until it clicks). Reattached the valve. Reattached the cardboard. Turned water back on, and plugged in the fridge. Our ice maker still didn't make cubes, though. So I took out the fill valve from the top rear of the fridge. It had a tiny piece of ice lodged in the bend of the back, right above where it connected to the water line. I rinsed it out, reinstalled, and now we have a full bucket of ice!!

The repair went exactly as illustrated by the video offered by part select. That video was helpful and showed me step by step how to accomplish the repair. The replacement part was exactly the same as the original, thank you part select.( Allow the old ice maker to return to room temperature before you remove the 1/4 nut securing the level mechanism, otherwise the frozen head of the not will break off).

Ice maker would not make ice or fill up

Followed the video instructions posted below the product. Its a tight area to work in but it can be done. It did not immediately start making ice. I waited and waited.... 3 hrs 4 hrs still not filling up or making ice. Finally I decided to pour some water in the tray and see if it would freeze ice and dump it. It did and immediately started to fill up on its own after that! Its been working perfectly ever since! So dont be alarmed if yours doesnt work immediately and try pouring some water in it if yours doesnt being working within several hrs. I am happy I was able to do this myself and save repair man costs. Its just not work the cost they charge for older appliances.

Removed old ice maker by loosening two retention screws and disconnection the power connecting clip. Installed replacement ice maker using same retention screws, attached the power cord to existing connection. Total time to repair was less than 15 minutes. We now have ice again!!! This is the second part I have ordered from Part Select and each time the parts and delivery exceeded my expectations. Much easier than searching for these parts in your local appliance store. Thank you Parts Select.

This is the 2nd ice maker replace in the past 20 months. This installation was easier following the experience of the first replacement. The instructions are well written. The pictures or illustrations are difficult. The most challenging part of the installation is routing and fastening the wire harness. The illustration was not helpful. Overall, this is a repair most DIYers should be able to accomplish.

Plastic Water Dispenser Actuator broke

  • Customer: Tom from Wheelersburg OH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

After removing the lower section which just snapped out I went to remove the three screws on the bottom of the water/ice dispenser. The only problems I had we're here in that the screws were rusted and difficult to get out with water falling into this area over time. Then I easily removed the three screws holding the motor and actuator. Of course there was three more screws holding the water dispenser actuator in place. I took the broken piece out and put it all together again but placed some rust resistant screws I had to replace the three rusted screws. Works great!
