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

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

Turn off water supply. Remove insulated cover (1/4" Nut driver) secured by 1 1/4" screw. Remove two 1/4" screws holding water filter housing in place on back o fridge. Noted the inlet and outlet water tubes and removed them from the housing using needle nose pliers (the elbows are removed by compressing the flange into the elbow while simultaneously pulling the tube in the other direction from the elbow). O-ring was placed in new filter cup. Plug filter into housing and screw filter cup onto the threads of housing. Insert tubing into new elbows, pressing them until they seat. Press other end of elbows onto nipples of filter housing, paying attention to the orientation noted above during dis-assembly. Attach filter housing to back of fridge with two 1/4" screws. Attach insulated cover over the housing with remaining 1/4" screw. Turn on the water supply and check for leaks. If no leaks, allow water to run through the system until all air is expelled.

We replaced our older 26' unit with a 23.6' model because of space limitations. There was no repair involved other than installing a new shelf with a cold cuts drawer and a 2 gal. door shelf bin. "Voila" more storage in the same space.
