Followed instructions from others on the blog. Shut off water and electricity to the refrigerator. Removed the cardboard plate. Removed the old water valve. Cut the compression valves off and inserted the tubes into the new water valve. Attached the water valve bracket to the fridge. Tightened copper water supply.Turned on the water - no leaks. Plugged the fridge in. Tried the water and ice in the door. No leaks - everything worked perfectly. THANK YOU PARTS SELECT!

Water was leaking from under and in the fridge

First I took both bolts off of the housing (holds filter) and removed two hoses by holding elbow vavle in while pulling hoses. Did the reverse to replace. The trick was knowing how to remove the elbow valves. Second there was still water leaking under the fridge, discovered it was the water inlet valve underneath. Ordered that part.

Refrigerator light was out

Test the light socket first with a bulb that you know is good. If the light still does not come on, unplug the refrigerator, remove the switch by inserting a very small, thin, flathead screwdriver alongside it and pull the switch out slowly with your other hand. There are two wires there. Remove them gently with some needle nose pliers. If you want to test to see if the switch is defective, take a insulated jumper wire, and attach it between the two wires. Plug the refrigerator back in and see if the light comes on. If the light does come on, replace with a new switch by re-attaching the wires and placing it back in the hole firmly.

I located the part that was the culprit as it had buzzed very much before quitting. This is an easy removal as the part is in a two prong jack and just needs to be carefully removed with the new part inserted back in the jack provided. The refrigerator works fine now, but the run capacitor will still buzz on start up of the compressor. I do hope this is normal in this model? anyway it runs fine mow. Thank you.

water actuator broke

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

First I removed the plastic drip pan that catches the ice and water. There were two or three screws that had to be removed. Next I removed the old broken actuator and put the new one in. There were two more screws to be removed to replace the old actuator. Those screws were pretty small and hard to get out. Other than that, the new actuator went right in and was working in no time. Overall a pretty easy project.

Food compartment not cooling, freezer working well.

  • Difficulty: Easy

Fantastic!
Sent in a brief description of problem and model number. Reply and description of other customers experiences guided us to the exact problem.
We ordered the part on Friday and it was here on Tuesday.
I prepared the freezer compartment for the removal of the old motor and on Sunday husband installed new Evaporator Fan Motor.

It works and is cooling like it did when it was new.

This has been a great experience as all repairmen wanted at least 60.00 to just come out and determine what the problem was. I can only imagine what the final bill would have been.

This was easy and inexpensive.

Thanks for all the help.
