Watched the video....it was perfect. Just needed a Phillips screwdriver, needle-nose pliers and a 3/8 socket. The cam was shattered, so I had to pull it out the old, broken one with the needle-nose pliers. The whole thing took about 20 minutes. Really appreciate that video!

Orginal pin failed. I got tired of doing a balancing act with food on the shelf to take weight off the missing pin.

Just like the video. I had pulled all the parts of the old pin out of the frig months ago. I had tired to buy a replacement pin, but the local supply store could not get the correct part. I finally did a search and found your website. I was impressed with the pictures and the "how to" video.

Refrigerator and freezer was not cooling sufficiently due to an inoperative evaporator cooling fan. Replacing the mini evaporator fan was extremely easy. Here are the steps needed to replace the fan.

Step 3: Using a 1/4" nut driver, remove the (2) 1/4" screws that hold the freezer vent panel/temperature control in place. Step 4: After removing the screws, disconnect the motor's wire harness connector which is located on the top left corner behind the freezer's vent panel/temperature control. Step 5: Pull away the entire vent panel/temperature control panel and lay it flat on a table. Step 6: Remove the vent cover from the main panel by holding the left side and the right side of the vent cover and squeeze both ends at the same time. Step 7: With the motor now being visible pull the motor's fan blade straight off. Step 8: Using the 1/4" nut driver, remove the (2) screws that hold the motor bracket to the rear of the main panel. Step 9: Using the 1/4" nut driver remove the (2) screws that hold the motor to the bracket and the (1) ground wire screw. Step 10: Install new motor back onto the bracket with the original (2) screws and the (1) ground wire screw onto the same locations.Step 11: Re install the (2) screws that mount the fan bracket to the back of the main vent panel.Step 12: Push the motor's original fan blade back on the shaft until it's fully seated. Step 12: Snap back in place the small vent panel back onto the main panel. Step 13: Push in place until you hear a click, the motor's wiring harness connector back onto the top left corner of the freezer's main power wire harness connector. Step 13: Push the main vent panel until it's in place and then reinstall with the original (2) 1/4" screws. Step 14: Reinstall the freezer's food rack back in place. Step 15: Plug in the main power cord into the wall outlet. Get ready to enjoy ice cold drinking water and a super cold freezer. Pete,your weekend mechanic

WATER INLET VALVE NOT WORKING / NO ICE

  • Customer: ROBERT from CLINT TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Wrench set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
STARTED AT INSTALLING WATER INLET VALVE, BUT THE VALVE I RECIEVED DID NOT HAVE THREADED ENDS FOR WATER LINES. WAS THE REPLACEMENT PART I NEEDED, BUT WITH OUT THE THREADED ENDS. CALLED PARTSELECT ABOUT THE ISSUE, THEY DID THERE RESEARCH ABOUT THE VALVE, WAS TOLD THAT THE MANUFACTURE HAD CHANGED SOME OF THE INSTALL FEATURES, SO I AKED THEM THAT INSTRUCTIONS ETC., WOULD OF BEEN GREAT. AS I LOOKED AT THE VALVE WHERE THE WATER LINES GO, THEY ALL MATCHED IN WATER LINE SIZES THAT MATCHED MY ORIGINAL VALVE, SO I CUTTED THE WATER LINES ONE BY ONE MAKING SURE THEY GO WHERE THEY GO. THE NEW WATER VALVE REQUIRES TO CUT (FLUSH CUT) THE LINES AT IT'S CLOSEST POINT TO THE VALVE AND INSERT INTO VALVE WATER LINE HOLE (THE NEW WATER INLET VALVE, HAS A SEAL GASKET IN EACH HOLE WITH LOCKING TEETH). SO YOU MUST BE ACCURATE ON WHERE AND WHICH WATER LINE GOS WHERE, CAUSE YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO PULL THE WATER LINE OUT AGAIN WITH OUT DAMAGING THE LOCKING TEETH ETC., IN THAT ONE WATER LINE YOU JUST PUTTED IN WRONG. BASICALLY THE NEW WATER INLET VALVE IS A CUT WATER LINE FLUSH AND INSERT TO PROPER HOLE, YOU GOT TO PUSH HARD UNTIL YOU FEEL THE WATER LINE PUSHING YOUR HAND AWAY FROM YOU, WHICH TO ME INDICATED THAT YOU HAD A SOLID COMPLETE SITTING OF WATER LINE ON TO VALVE AND PULL ON THAT SAME LINE JUST A BIT TO SEE , IF IT WOULD COME OUT. WHICH IT DID NOT AND SO YOU DO ALL WATER LINES THE SAME WAY / REINSTALLED / HOOKED UP MAIN WATER COPPER LINE THE THE WATER INLET VALVE / CHECKED FOR LEAKS, NOTHING / INSTALLED ICE MAKER SIMPLE 2 SCREWS ON INSIDE OF FREEZER FOR MOUNTING ICE MAKER / UNPLUGGED ICE MAKER FROM MALE-FEMALE PLUG IN FREEZER WHERE ICE MAKER IS PLUGGED TO. INSTALLED REVERSE ORDER / ADDED 1 CUP OF WATER (BY HAND) ONTO ICE MAKER I HAD JUST INSTALLED, SO IT WOULD GO THRU ITS CYCLE , OF MAKING ICE / ICE DISPENCING ONTO TUB / AND THE WATER INLET VALVE KICKS INTO ACTION ADDING WATER. * NOTE: I DID NOT HAVE THE INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT THE NEW CHANGES TO THE WATER INLET VALVE , DO THIS ,DO THAT . THE NUMBER PROVIDED TO ME FROM CUSTOMER SERVICE ON ABOUT CONTACTING THE MANFACTURER WAS USELESS, REASON BEING. THEY JUST SAID THAT THEY JUST MANUFACTURE PARTS, THEY DON'T HOW TO. BUT LIKE I SAID, IT'S A SIMPLE CUT EVEN AND PUSH INTO HOLE, UNTIL LINE LOCKS. BETTER INSTRUCTIONS, WITH DETAILS. WOULD'VE BEEN GREAT . HOPE MY DETAILS HELP YOU ALL. : )

The repair was very simple with loosing the two mounting screws (did not have to take completely out) with a nut driver. Unplugged the unit from the fridge wiring at the back of the pig tail on the ice maker. The pictures on the web page were priceless in making the decision if I truly had the correct part. The part arrived within two day from ordering. Ordered on Sunday and received on Tuesday. Took about 10 min to unpack, mount, hook up electrical and turn on water.

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Had a leak every night from refrigerator couldn't understand where from. Went on line and found some articles. I was referred to this sight by ads the articles and then in how to. I was pleased that a customer wrote their own instructions on what to do it was more concise clear and made preparation easier. First label towel cup and bucket needed too. Turn off water supply and electrical cord unplug then remove cover behind refrigerator vacuum and clean then. Water makes a mess so clean dry first. Then mark your hoses to remember order. Next remove old inlet and put in bucket it's pressure clamps so push in and it locks I chose to suction pipes and check for damage to pipes pin holes etc next I inserted into new inlet in order. At that time I turned water valve on checked for leaks at initial insert and new inlet. Next I plugged in unit cord. Waited. No leaks so far left for 30 minutes ran ice machine and water dispenser waited 20 minutes no leaks yet. Unplugged refrigerator unit. Installed the inlet completely to base and closed back paper panel after wiping water. Waited 24 hours then smiled no leak. Job done so far 2 weeks all clear. Hope this helps you will need screws driver and wrench for copper or main line I did find same part for less but this sight help me with good instructions the one they provide is for engineers architects lol not me I'm DYI

All instructions included on this site are good. I would add only one thing to them. When removing the 4 water lines from the old unit be sure to pull up on the white rings while you pull down on the water lines. All else is a snap.

Set the bottom of the door on the lower hinge then postioned and set the top hinge into place and tightened the top hinge and installed the hinge cap.
