Brokenglassshelf,broken crisper

The glass shelf was broken when I was cleaning the refrigerator. The crisper had broken with daily wear and tear.I was tired of seeing a crisper with duct tape and a shelf replaced by cardboard. I looked online and found the most reasonble prices at this site. My order came extremely quickly! It was so simple to replace the needed areas, including a new water filter. I would recommend this site to anyone!!

CustomerHarry from Audubon PA

Ice maker stopped making ice

After researching the problem on parts select I found that there were several reasons why the ice maker would stop working. The number one reason was the electronic sensors fail,these tell the ice maker when ice bucket is filled. The light on the electronic eye will blink a code to diagnose the if there is a problem with the sensor. In my case the sensor was bad(the red sensor light would not stay on). The light transmitter is on the right and the reciever is on the left. First make sure there is nothing blocking the holes by cleaning them with a "q" tip. If they still don't work and the blinking code indicates failure them they need to be replaced.The sensors are behind panels on the left and right; each panel had 3 screws that need to be removed. First shut off power to the frig. Once you remove the screws you will find a quick connect attached to a electronic board on each side. Unplug each board and replace with the new part. Replace the panels and turn on the frig to test. The instructions in the parts box will tell you the light codes that will indicate that the boards are working. One note, I did this repair , the sensors were working and I did not get ice after 30-60 minutes.I found out that the water fill tube(black tube at the top of icemaker) was clogged with frozen water thus the ice tray never filled. After clearing out the ice with a small pipe cleaner the ice maker tray fill with water and the ice maker made ice on schedule.

CustomerBetty from Petaluma AL

Needed new water filter...red indication light on.

Turned the icemaker off (lifted the wire up inside the freezer). Used a pliers to turn and take the circular cover off..located on the bottom of the refrigerator grill..it was tight. Pulled out old filter, put new one on..thats it! Simple. We had to reset the red light inside the refrigerator..pushed it, heard a beep, pushed again, got the green light.
