This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
First, I removed all items on the door shelves and the shelves themselves to reduce the weight of the door. Second, I removed the cover on the top hinge assembly and removed the two screws that secured that hinge. Third I lifted the door from the bottom hinge assembly and placed the door horizontal on the kitchen table to all easier access to the bottom of the door. I then removed two screws holding the door closing cam and shim and replaced them with the new parts. Next was to removed the old hinge assembly on the refrigerator itself and replace it with a new hinge assembly. All down hill from this point. Time to reinstall the door, aligning the bottom of the door cam over the hinge assembly and setting the door down on it making sure the door sets on the hinge assembly cams. To the top of the refrigerator. reinstalled the top door hinge assembly and cover, job complete. Total time from start to finish including cleaning the inside of the door and shelves about 30 minutes.As for the replacing of the light lens in the freezer section. This was almost to easy. I removed the ice drawer from the freezer which exposed the one phillips screw that holds the lens in place. Removed the screw and what was left of the old lens, inserted the new lens from the underneath the ice drawer compartment and screw, replaced the ice drawer and, the task was complete. Total time about 5 minutes.

Unplug the refrigerator. Move things to gain access to the bottom back of the refrigerator. Take care in movement of refrigerator not to kink or loosen the ice maker water supply line. Use nut driver (best), screw driver, or socket to take off 6 screws holding the cardboard cover (air access for the fan). Remove the old fan blade with fingers and light pressure with a screw driver, it will snap right off. The new blade comes with a ringed compression fitting so you need not buy the new one that is shown on the schematic diagram. Push the new blade on the fan shaft far enough to allow the shaft to protrude from the front side of the new blade-that is what holds it in place and you should feel a little snap when it is inserted far enough. Caution: Do not vacuum around the blade or try to reinstall the cardboard cover while the fan is running. I broke two of them while doing just that, they are very brittle. Recover with cardboard and you're done!
I repaired as follows. 1) Open freezer door. 2)Removed ice maker bin. 3) removed screw with broken tab on it. 4) install new shield slide to side.5) Reinstall screw. 6) Grab TAB (tasty adult beverage) and enjoy on back deck while talking about how good you are at repairing stuff.... HA!
SUPER easy repair, taking about 5 minutes. After taking out the ice bin, I removed one small phillip's head screw, put the light shield in place, and tightened the screw.
Removed the Ice Maker container. Removed the one screw that held the remnant of the old light shield. Placed the new light shield in place and installed the screw. 5 Minutes from start to finish.
The light shield is only held in with a single screw, so it was the simplest install ever - unscrew the old light shield (in my case, the remaining piece of the light shield), put the new shield in place, and screw it down. Doesn't get any easier than that.
I removed the ice maker,removed the broken piece of the old light shield,screwed the new light shield in place,and replaced the ice maker.It took all of 5 minutes.
Because of the way it broke I was not sure how it was attached until I read reply's from others who had the same problem. The instillation tip was greatly appreciated.
I only installed a light shield. However, I injoyed using your web site. It was easy and much better than Repair Clinic web site. I'm a do it your self person and this is the site I will return to!
Super fast replacement, and the part was sent to us FAST and WELL-PACKAGED and REASONABLY PRICED! Thankyouverymuch!
The light shield for my fridge isn't made anymore. The one I got was close, but I needed to glue on an edge from a cut up piece of channel molding for wires so that it could be attached to the freezer section. I used 'Goop' and it seems to work well. It's all about improvisation....
Removed ice tray and set on kitchen counter .One small phillips scredriver to remove broken tab.Attached replacement shield with screw, replaced ice tray. Probaly total of 5 to 10 minutes to find scredriver, do the repair & replace screwdriver where it belonged. Took more time to place order then do repair. Add a couple of minutes to unpack.and some more time to drop off cardboard box at recycle center.
Unscrewed white cover cap, removed 3 screws on door hinge, lifted door off, laid it on carpet replaced defective part.
Firts I removed the food from the freezer. Then I used the cordless drill/screw driver to loosen the broken piece of plastic. I inserted the plastic shield and screwed the shield in place. The majority of time was spent removing and replacing the food from the shelf.Finding the part was made so easy by this website. I wish I had done it years ago but because I am not handy, I didn't think I could do it. Reading how easily others did it convinced me to try.
Light shield easily installed with one screw. Can not istall the 2 ice bucket trays because the back attachment on each is a rivet.
