I easily removed the shelf, cleaned it, removed one screw, adjusted a tab that was bent, then installed new side rail with the screw that was removed and put back the shelf and storage bin. Everything worked perfectly. I must have saved $100 by doing it myself.

Wow. What an easy repair. It was so easy I literally had my 10 year son complete the repair.

(Handyman requirement for Cub scouts).

Removed 1 screw and pulled out old broken guide rail, replaced with new part and screwed it back in.

It took long to wash and clean the shelves we pulled out than it did to make the repair.

I removed the housing at the top of the refrigerator compartment that contained the reefer light and temperature adjustment knob. This required a small nut-driver. Inside, I found the old defrost control, unplugged it, unscrewed it with a Phillips screwdriver, and replaced it with the replacement part. Then I replaced the housing to its original position.

I ordered the correct part BUT the part did not come with screws.

removed freezer door and installed the new one. This was a pretty easy thing to do, although putting the old handle on the new door was a challenge. No knowing that there is a plastic piece holding the top of the handle i broke the that piece and had to order another one. Mean while the freezer was making alot of frost inside, so that had to be cleaned after the new part came.

The refrigerator wasn't cold enough.

Ordered the part. When it arrived (extremely fast delivery), took the old part off and put the new part in. Perfect fit. Took less than one minute to exchange the old with the new.

Thanks a lot for such a wonderful, pleasant experience. Would heartily recommend your services to anyone in the market.

I moved into a house with two guys that would have never even thought of fixing the problem. I'm a girl and couldn't live with a fridge without all it's parts so I looked in other places and decided to buy from here because of the reviews. I got the parts in two days with no problems at all, they were easy to install and the fridge looks better and we can make better use of the space.
I would recommend this store to anyone!!
