CustomerJames from San Diego CA

No ice from ice maker

Replaced motor-modl (part #W10190935) by un-screwing 3 screws, disconnected the the electical plug, removed 3 screws that held the motor assembly to the and removed the motor and replaced with new motor but this did not fix the problem and still had no ice. Since frig was 10 years old decided to buy new one as cost to repair would probably cost a few hundred dollars. Gave frig to family member as second frig as they already had ice maker.

Lower hinge on door, watrer filter and ice/water tray

The notches that create the closing power on the lower hinge was worn out. A few bolts at the top of the door and it was off. One nut to hold the plastic hinge and it was on. Door works perfectly now. Water filter was a breeze and the tray where the ice and water dispenser is was even easier. Parts came incredibly fast and after an order for $75 total and my repairs were done.

Icemaker quit

Unscrewed 3 screws. Unplugged the old unit, plugged in the new unit. Replaced 3 screws. Made ice like new.

This was VERY easy. The kit inlcuded every conceivable wire connection pigtail. Turned out I needed none since the OEM cable was a plug & play affair.

A drawer support wheel had broken off the lower support shelf frame making drawer opening very difficult

I removed the glass shelf and drawer, tugged on the frame to snap it out of position, snapped the new frame in place, replaced the shelf and drawer and done... So easy, a 5 year old could do it...

In the door ice maker coupling was broken, therefore, it would not dispense ice.

Ordered the parts, three days later they arrived. Put the coupling and the washer in place and screwed the dispenser back in place. Oh yeah, also installed the new filter that I ordered. Piece of cake.

Ice maker not working

Easy plug and play repair for anyone. Sourced the part and watched the video instruction on the website. The video was spot on, the old part was removed and replaced with the new part. The video explained in detail the step by step instructions plus added what tools were required. Very simple fix and the part arrived a day early! Very satisified with the service and easy repair instructions. With a 1 being the easiest and 10 being difficult this would have a rating of 2.

Ice maker stopped working

Ordered and installed new icemaker. Still didn't work. Called repairman who replaced cut-off sensor (expensive service call) Worked briefly, then stopped. Service man said new icemaker was defective. Called PartsSelect and they promptly sent another one (great service). Made ice for 12 hours and then stopped. Did nothing for 36 hours and it suddenly started working again and works fine now. Beats me.
