Broken support rail

  • Customer: Robert from Duson, LA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 3 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
First, I removed the screw holding the support rail and, because of using super glue to attempt a temporary fix, I had a little difficulty in removing it from it's location.

Since I have "tremors" next time email me a repairman.

Thank you.

There is nothing easier than this. You just take out the broken bar and put in the new one.

Most of my time was spent removing food items from the shelf that supported the rails. Once that was done, a quick removal of the screw, replace the left support rail and re-installing the screw. Done. I wish all of my repairs were so easy!

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.

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.

Looked up similar problems and found it to be the defrost timer. All I had to do was remove the plastic portion in the fridge section to get to the old timer. Popped the new one in and put it back together. Works great now. Would have been almost $150 to have a repair company come out and fix it.

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!!

Pulled the drawer out, lifted the shelf out of the refrigerator, unscrewed drawer slides from shelf and rescrewed the new drawer slides and returned the shelf, drawer, and the job was finished. Thank you so very much for your speedy delivery.

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.

I removed the plastic shroud on the ceiling of the refigerator, unscrewed and unplugged the old defrost timer, and replaced it with the new one. I reinstalled the shroud with the new timer installed.
