snapped the wires from frig onto the proper prong and viola,it works. The proper prong is identified by the size because there are two prongs with the wires and two connecting prongs in the socket. I talked to a very helpful representative and she gave me the number for Frigidaire, when I was confused by the placement of the wire. Wish I had remembered her name to share with you. As it turned out I didn't need to call Frigidaire.

Refrigerator Door Hinge Problem

I first ordered the part from a local appliance/repair store in my area. The part was way over priced and they had ordered the wrong part when I went to pick it up. I had provided a picture of the part I need to them / it didn't help. I searched the internet for the needed part and found PartSelect. I found the exact part "I thought I needed" and also saw an additional hinge part that fit in the bottom of the door. I purchased both (figured if one was worn out the other would be soon). Turned out that it was "the additional part" that I needed. I would recommend that you suggest both parts when doing this particular repair. I also liked the fact that you provided pictures of the parts in question . . . recognized it immediately from your site. The repair video provided on the PartSelect sight was very helpful. The repair was a breeze for an old woman. I was very happy with the person who took my order (she was very nice and very professional); and the speed in which I received the part. PartSelect is now saved in my favorites for future reference. I recommend them highly. Thanks for your help. Beverly Brunner

I noticed that the two gears weren't meshing together so upon inspection I saw that one of the gears had an inner piece missing making it weak so it kept popping out away from the other great. I ordered the new gear and unscrewed the old one off and put the new one on. So easy. It made Ice beautiful after that

We decided to get a new fridge, after the " sticker shock " of new refrigerators we decided to repair the one we have. Two screws and one plug and the ice maker was replaced, took out the broken crisper shelf, put in the new one and that was done, instructions were great. I actually had to watch a " how to " video, ( provided by your web site ) to change the shelf support, very easy. thanks, Gary Hoyle

Crisper support 'pin' for crisper broke off x 2

1) cleared remaining parts of broken crisper supports by pushing them into refrigerator insulation(pushed on 'pegs' so 'peg' holes in side of plastic inner liner of refrigerator were clear. 2) Was unable to fully place new crisper supports into postiion. 3) Then, out of despiration, used small light hammer to gently tap on largest 'pin.' I was surprised to see this 'pin' enter into plastic side of refrigerator and then to see crisper support was secure when 'pin'/peg' was flush with new crisper support. 4) then returned crisper to correct postion; supports held. 5) WARNING-DO NOT OVERLOAD CRISPERS!! I BELIEVE THIS CAUSED 'PIN'/'PEG' FAILURE INITIALLY! I don't know if cause was volume too high with crisper forced into place OR if the crisper mass/weight was the culprit. SUGGEST weight limit less than 7.5 lbs.; don't attempt to load in more volume than top of crisper.

Broken Crisper Drawer Cover and broken Crisper Cover Support pin

Following the video instructions provided by the web site, it took me less than 20 minutes to accomplish the entire repair. The video instructions were invaluable, because without them I would not be able to guess how the support part is mounted in the refrigerator’s wall.

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.

All I had to do was take the old drawer out, and put the new drawer in. You would think this would be very easy. But there was a hitch. There is a little lever on the drawer that you can slide to the right or to the left in order to adjust the temperature of the drawer. That piece was not included. It had to be purchased separately. No one told me that. So I tried to take the slider out of the old box. I could not get it out without breaking it, so I called the company. They said that piece is not included, and it had to be purchased separately. However, one could take it out of the old drawer and put it into the new drawer. When I told them that I could not figure out how to do this without breaking it, someone in customer service said to use a screwdriver and gently try to pry the old one off, and then inserted into the new one. I cannot believe that this integral piece was not part of the plastic drawer!

"Popping" noise when opening the refrigerator door.

I removed the food on the door and placed it in the refrigerator. I placed a plastic sheet over the opening of the refrigerator to keep the cold air in. Then I removed the bracket for the upper hinge, remover the door and placed it onto a table. Then I removed the plastic bearing from the bottom of door. I then replaced it with the new bearing. Then I removed the lower bearing and its bracket from the refrigerator. At this point I had to modify the new lower bracket by removing the alignment tab with a dremel because there wasn’t any hole in the housing for it. Then I attached the new bracket and bearing. Replaced the door and upper hinge and the job was complete. It took only about a half an hour to finish.

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 1: Unplug refrigerator/freezer main power cord from the electric wall outlet. Step 2: Remove the food rack from the freezer compartment. 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

Our refrigerator was not cooling below 50 degrees but the freezer had no problems. Turns out that the evaporator fan motor was dead.

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. : )

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
