I had to cut a little of of the ends of the shelf to make it fit. I used an angle grinder to get the job done and the shelf fits perfectly. By the way I paid for 3-5 day shipping and got it the very next day can't ask for better service than that.

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

I unscrewed the old rails and took the number to order on the first day. The order came on the 3rd day. Can you imagine such fast service.
My daughter is a single mom with 4 children, one of whom was responsible for the breakage. I am the grandmother and was very grateful for the fast service and great price. The drawer was installed in 10 minutes. I just screwed the old screw into the new part and replaced the drawer. Thanks

it was very simple, my husband did it. had to take the top shelf out and screw in the support rail and that was it. couldn't have been any easier. this was the easiest process from start to finish that we ever had. looked up on line, found your website, ordered the part and it arrived in a couple of days. So easy and your company was most efficient in having the part and in processing. Couldn't have been mored pleased.

Water leaking from fridge-drain tube cracked

  • Customer: Gerald from Goshen IN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 4 of 5 people found this instruction helpful
Used a screwdriver and unstuck the tape holding the tube in place. Then, just wiggled the tube loose and snapped a new one in. Didn't bother trying to tape the new one. It stayed just fine. Space was a bit tight to work in, but not too bad. The most difficult part was figuring out that the water was actually coming from the fridge, not from a leaky faucet or drain. And the fridge was difficult to move, because it has no rollers in the front.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the wiring harness plug, replaced the old timer with the new one, re-connected the wiring harness and reinstalled the mount in position. Hardest thing about it was lying on the floor.
