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!!

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.

The center door hinge was still attached to the refridgerator so I only had to install the bottom and top hinges. I also moved the door handles to the other side so the doors open the "right" way. The hinges were just 2 bolts and 3 screws. Now, just if the repair man from our home warrentee company would show up to fix the refridgerator. It's blowing hot air!!!

Easy peasy... took the shelf out of the fridge. Unscrewed the old rail. Screwed in the new one. Put the shelf back in. DONE!!!!

My local appliance repair shop said they would have to order the whole shelf in order to fix my problem. It was going to cost $50 and I'd have to wait 3 weeks.

Instead, I found you guys on the internet. The part cost $5 and I got in delivered in 2 days.... CAN'T BEAT THAT!!!!

Thanks

As I was aware hot install it, bec a couple of days back, the handle pop out of the lower screw shaft. The easy steps is put the lower part first, keep the handle diagonal to the door, once the lower screw is fit into the shaft, turn it to right to place the holes on the door holes and just jack in the screw.

Its pretty easy.
