Removed the right door. Removed three bolts that hold on the door on. Once removed, I removed the bushing with a screw driver and popped the new one in. Replaced the door and no more noise. Fixed the problem. I also watched a you tube video before I started.

This was probably the easiest repair I have done on this refrigerator. I pulled the unit away from the wall, turned off the water, and disconnected the hose. I have a wooden floor in my kitchen so I was careful to put a towel under the hose and valve. Very little water drained out but I kept the towel there for insurance. After removing the access panel, I removed the two screws holding the valve in place, slid it back to where I could unplug the wiring connected to it. The connectors are color coded so there is no worry about putting them back incorrectly. The new valve uses push-in type water connections, so you have to cut the old style connections off of the plastic water lines. Kitchen shears did this easily. Then is was just a matter of pushing each line into the proper connector on the valve, reattach the electrical connectors, and slide the valve back in place. Reinstall the screws, reinstall the access panel, hook up the water hose, slide the unit back into it's niche, and run about a gallon of water through the dispenser and you are done.

Watched the Parts Select video associated with this part. Very easy repair. Removed the right-hand door, removed the broken hinge, popped in the new part, applied some lubrication and put the door back on. Lengthiest part was removing food items from the door in preparation for the job. Highly recommend watching the video first as it shows you exactly what to do and how easy this job is.

I first ordered through the website. It looked like I was ordering the correct door shelves but when they arrived they were too narrow and did not fit. When I called customer service, I provided the exact Model Number and they sent me the correct shelves. I ended up paying for shipping twice. If I had just called customer service in the first place it would have been done right the first time. The website did not allow ordering for just my exact model number. The message 'fits most Frigidaire models' did not work in my case.

Refrigerator and freezer were not cooling properly

  • Customer: Alex from HILLIARD OH
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I can fix just about anything, but when I'm approaching to fix an item that I have previously no experience with I always do some research before attempting a repair. Once I diagnosed the problem (The evaporator fan was not kicking on), I purchased both the thermostat and fan because either one of them could be the source as to why the refrigerator was not working. Unless you want to drink room temperature milk for three to four more days, I highly recommend that you replace both. After cleaning out the freezer and removing the pull out bucket, I removed the screws and pulled out the metal enclosure. The fan was easy to take out along with the thermostat. The time consuming part of the repair was splicing the old wiring harness with the new thermostat and condenser fan since the replacement condenser fan had a different wiring harness. I had to heat sink the butt splice connectors and I wrapped all the wires in a cold weather electric tape. After that I plugged the refrigerator right in and to my delight it worked :) I love this website because it is very user friendly accompanied with fast and efficient shipping. Thanks again!

I watched your video on how to do the procedure and followed it, step-by-step. It worked like a charm. When I took the crisper drawer and runner out of the refrigerator, I noticed that the lower drawer support had broken as well. So, I have ordered 4 to have a few on hand and will repeat the process when my new order arrives. I'm very pleased! Thank you very much.

Couldn't be easier! Unscrewed the filter cover manually, removed the old filter, put in the new one and screwed the cover back on. Then slotted the door shelf bin in place. AND I found the ordering simplicity itself, plus the items were delivered the next day. Great service!

Everything in the refrigerator side was freezing.

The defrost thermostat kit is located in the freezer side of the refrigertor. I turned off the electrical breaker for the refrigerator. I began the project by removing all the frozen food on the lower half of the freezer. I removed the racks and 3 rails on both sides using a cordless drill with a 1/4" socket and located panel. The panel had 4 1/4" screws holding it to the back of the freezer. I removed all screws and the panel came out easy. I located the defrost thermostat and with some wire cutters, I cut the wires. I connected the the new defrost thermostat with wire connectors and reattached it to the copper tube I removed it from. I put the panel back on along with the side rails and racks.. This project was very easy.
