The hardest part was to figure out how to remove the old studs and put in new ones. I figured out finally that they should be twisted out and in., Simple online or printed insruction would be very helpful. Unfortunatelly the manual does not contain any repair information.I fixed it with little trouble.

I have an old DIY home repair book and I saw that the ice maker repair wasn't hard, so I ordered the parts from Part Select. 1 day to arrive...super service. The site is very helpful with diagrams about the parts. The repair was a cinch...EXCEPT I forgot to unplug and got a little zap. The shelf pegs were a breeze because I had read other's stories about how to remove and replace on this site. Go try to do it...get a book at library if you need some direction.
First of all, here's a warning to all -- I took the glass shelf / pan cover out to clean it -- with a sponge wet with COLD water and the shelf literally exploded on me. This is the second such incident. Both times I have been lucky and no one was hurt.The shelf was easily identifiable by part number based on model number. Easy to locate the model number on plate above top shelf inside refrigerator (right hand side in my case). Only had to carefully set glass shelf in frame -- no issues. I was able to use a screwdriver to remove the shelf support stud and basically pop the replacement back in with no issue.Thank you Parts Select for your simplified system to order replacement parts, and the speed with which it was received.
The shelf studs were broken and needed to be replaced. Searching online as to how to remove a number of sources said to turn stud 90deg counter-clockwise to remove. These studs needed to be turned 180 degrees. Once studs were out obvious this needed to be done. Re-insert of studs were easy.Replacement of studs were easy.
Easy as cutting through warm butter. Just grabbed the base of the broken stem flush with the wall of the fridge using the wide-angle setting of a normal pliers, and twisted it out. Left over was a hole to insert the replacement stem. Inserted stem, twisted clockwise into place, and done. Much better design than other units I've worked on becvause the replacement part has stout-gauge wires that, when new stem is twisted into place, "locks" it in so you don't need to reinforce it, acting somewhat like an anchor screw on the wall for hanging a picture. Thanks for the perfect part!! Service and delivery are excellent.
My wife had the shelf end caps and trim replaced before I got home. The shelf support stud was very easy to install. A pair of pliers and a simple turn and the broke piece was out and the new one was in.
I read a previous entry that stated the stud needed to be twisted out, which was very useful. I was bit worried at first when I removed the broken one and a bit of the insulation came out and it seemed mangled inside, but twisting the new one in worked. It is in there firm and strong, good as original.
inserted stud and twisted
Following the diagram of parts so that I could order the right items was the most difficult part of the job. The web site for this task needs to be more friendly.
one screw fixed the water dispenser. The screws were more difficult to remove.Your website would be more helpful if you had a larger diagram of the shelf supports. It was difficult to locate the exact supports needed. I actually bought one I didn't need as a package of two. My refigerator was manufactured in 1990. I bought it new. I have had no proplems with the refigerator or freezer. The broken water dispenser and shelf supports are the only repairs. If the company had made the dispenser and shelf supports out of metal they would not have broken. There is too much weight on the brackets in the crisper because it is such a large contained area Otherwise I am very happy with my refigerators performance.Barbara Kemper
only the front right stud was broken with very little left attached to hold and remove. After a long twist and pull , got it out and placed the new one....Still recommend Part Select..RAUL, MIAMI FL
