My grandkids broke the water dispenser in the refrigerator door.

The repair was easy. It just required a little time and patience. There are about a half dozen screws to remove and three of them are very small. I woild suggest a phillips head screwdriver with a magnetic tip for the small screws. They can easly fall into the control unit and be hidden. If they happen to fall, a small pen-type magnet that is expandable will make it easy to retrieve. I used a small set of needle-nose pliers to replace the small metal plates over the plastic pins that hold the water actuator in place. If your are careful, this repair can be done without disconnecting any of the electrical wiring.

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.

It was a dreary day, too cold to be outside so I decided to tackle this repair. The first problem was one of the three screws holding the dispenser to the door was rusted in and would not come out. If I was smart I would have stopped there, but in the spirit of Tim the Toolman I found a way to work around it. I was able to get the panel off and disconnect the plug in wires and twist it to the side. The actual change of the paddle was a breeze- three screws and it was done. I turned the front section back into place, connected the wires and proceeded to replace the two remaining screws. All of a sudden the ice diispenser kicked in! First in the crushed mode then in the cube mode. You would be amazed how much ice the dispenser actually holds! I was trying to take screws out to disconnect the wires and catch ice at the same time not; an easy task. Once I had all the ice picked up I tried again and all seemed fine-the chilled water even dispensed again. Problem solved? Only until there was ice in the dispenser again and it decided to start dispensing on its own again. This time I learned and unplugged the appliance from the wall. I took everything apart again and disconnected the wires from the control panel and reassembled without reconnecting it. The repair company will be coming out next week to fix. Hopefully what would have been an easy fix will not become an expensive repair. It was one of those times I should have followed my gut when I ran into the first obstacle. I'll let you know the outcome when the professionals do their work.

Lightning struct the house and fried the evap thermostat

Noticed the evap fan wasn't working, so trying to disconnect the wire broke the connection so had to order a new motor. Installed the motor but it still didn't work. Had a technician look at it and he said it was the control board. Ordered and installed control board and still didn't work. The only element left is the evap thermostat. Jumped the thermostat and it worked so ordered and installed a thermostat. It works now

Read the previous instructions given by other responders, they're spot on. But, in short. . .
Remove all food items from the inside of the door.

Remove Phillips head screw holding top hinge cover, remove cover.

Remove top hinge bolts, making sure not to let the door fall.

Lift door off of bottom hinge.

**Removing the broken bearing piece turned-out to be the most time consuming part of the job. Incredibly easy fix.

One of the bins on my freezer door had the tabs, that hold it on the door, broken off. I orginally ordered the wrong item, but I called right away and Parts Select had the correct item to me immediately. It was a very easy fix, I just had to snap the bin in place once it arrived.I am very impressed with PartSelect and their service. I would definately use them again and recommend them to others.

Refrigerator quit running

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.

I broke the fan while cleaning the coil

  • Customer: Raymond from Houston TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 4 of 5 people found this instruction helpful
The broken fan made my refrigerator sound like a lawn mower I pulled the refrigerator out of it's nook and disconnected the power, removed the back panel with my battery powered drill motor, slid the old fan off of motor shaft, slid the new fan back on ran it to make sure the problem was corrected. The entire repair took less than fifteen minutes and was as simple as it could be. Please be careful when cleaning your coil, as the fan is easily damaged if you should contact it.

Ice make does not fill with water

I replaced the water valve, but it still did not fix the problem.The old water valve I took out I'm assuming worked fine, I think the real problem is ice building up in pipe or some other blockage.

Parts select was very fast in shipping, very positive experience with them.
I will definitely purchase again from this site.
