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.

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!

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.

not freezing, refrigerator not cooling, back of freezer icing up

  • Difficulty: Easy

I first determined the problem. I found PartSelect.com through online search. I ordered the part online Sunday morning. Part arrived Tuesday afternoon(Christmas eve) and I installed it that night! Now I am a gal mind you, but I am pretty handy. I pulled out the fridge, unplugged it and removed the back panel, easy. Then I used a heat gun on low the defrost the 'defroster' which had REALLY iced up bad. It had iced up so much,in fact, it had disconnected the evaporator fan connection. I clipped the wires. Stripped the ends, slid on the shrink tubing supplied, connected the wires with the crimp connectors and heated the shrink tube. I also put another piece of shrink tube on the fan connector so it would be more secure. Put the panel back on, plugged it back in and started working like a champ!! I am so proud of myself and likely saved at least $250.00 on a service call! Total cost for this repair, $22.00!! :D

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

The refrigerator's In-door water dispenser leaked water. The leakage started out slow and over a period of time increased.

This was the first time I ever installed a water inlet valve in a refrigerator. I viewed the Parts Select youtube repair video that is available online. In fact, I viewed it a couple times. Ultimately, the actual installation of the water inlet valve went exactly as shown in the youtube video. I did not experience any problems with the installation and was quite happy with the experience.
