CustomerRowan from Miramar FL

Ice guide broken, filter needs changing

This was a very easy repair. The ice guide has 3 pegs that just clicked into the opening to position it. The ice and water filter was easy as well. I turned the water off because I was not sure if the water would leak when I removed it.

One thing is to make sure you run the water for a while after installation to recharge the water line and to get all air out of the line, and to run the filter.

CustomerMary from Charlotte NC

Door shelf was cracked, so that it sagged on one side.

I washed the new shelf, took the food out of the old one, slid the new one into place and replaced the food. It took less time than opening the packaging! As for the filter, that's routine maintenance, which my son kindly did for me, as squatting to get to the floor-level filter is not as easy as it used to be.
