This was the second time the part had failed and it was time to replace it. Rsther than hope a local store may have the part, I went on the internet and found PartSelect.com and ordered what I thought was the right part and it arrived here in Texas the next day! Turned out to be the wrong part. Oops! I contacted PartSelect by email to see if I could return the part and got an imediate response from Denise with the address ad instructions for returning the part and a very generous offer to help select the right psrt. I gave her the refrigerator/freezer model number and she immediately respoded with the part number. I rerordered the part and it again arrived the next day. I slipped it into place on the refrigerator door and it fit!! End of problem but not quite the end of the story. I received an email a couple of days later informing me that the money due me from the first order was on it's way. Color me a very happy customer!!

I turned off the water, removed the cardboard cover from the back of the refrigerator; removed the 2 screws holding the water valve in place; unscrewed the plastic tubing from the valve; unplugged the wires to each solenoid (3); the old valve had threaded connections for the plastic water lines, the new valve didn't; I had to cut the ferrel off of the plastic lines so I could insert them into the new valve and then press the connector into the valve (I didn't anticipate something like this, but it worked fine); I reconnected the wiring and screwed the valve back into place. The ice maker started making ice and the water stopped dripping from the dispenser. The best $65 I've ever spent.

followed the video and had little or no trouble loosening or tightening bolts or phillips head screws. The only difficulty was removing the spacer on the door itself. Otherwise a piece of cake. Good video and easy to follow instructions.

The repair was very easy, just a matter of snapping the bin on the door. However, i was very please and impressed with the expeditious service that i received. I ordered the door around noon and it was delivered by 10am the next day. This is what i consider "quality service" and I thank this company sincerely.

Freezer leaked, no water disp. & Crusher didnt crush

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

First I defrosted the entire unit, both sides for 24 hours. Restarted, I now have water dispensing. (It had apparently frozen) Next I took out the ice crushing part and took it apart, (a few screws) by removing the broken floppy piece; the small plastic floppy door that allows ice to crush, replaced this small piece, rather than replacing the entire big plastic piece that I ordered. Used a slot screw driver removed the old floppy piece that was broken and removed the same piece from the new one and switched them out. Reassembled the entire unit (a few screws), put the ice back in and it works great. I got the instructions for taking apart this from this site, however, it was fairly easy to figure out. Just be patient with the plastic parts.
