All food and drawers were removed from the freezer, including ice tray. The left side shelf brackets were removed to ease removal of the back panels which expose the the bi-metal defrost thermostat. Six screws to remove the large back panel, plus the shelf support rails needed to be loosened to remove the smaller upper panel. The bi-metal thermostat is mechanically clipped to the upmost coil of the condenser. The two wires must be cut and wires for the new thermostat spliced in. The wires were tinned with solder to insure a good connection, then twisted and crimped with an automotive end connector. With the smaller 22. 8 Cu. Ft. Refrigerator a lot of the work will have to be performed with one hand. The hardest problem here is diagnosing the malfunction correctly in the beginning. I was impressed that the replacement part was received in two days . . .

First I called Mr appliance from Bayport ny, And they told me we needed a new frig. So that night we went out and bought a new one from PC.The next day I canceled it and watched your video. The freezer side was cold and the fan was running so I figured it was most likely the defrost timer or the bimetel thermostat as the evaporator was frozen.I ordered the part from you (parts select)installed it EASY And it runs perfect!! This is my second time the last time it was my Moms frig but in this case the fan was not running. So I ordered from you watched your video and again it runs perfect. Thank you for all your help. I will always order from you.Oh and the part was at my door in two days.And I was able to cancel the other frig 1300.00 saved Thank you parts select

Took old drawer out, put new drawer in. When I first opened the new drawer I was a little disappointed as the printing on the edge of the crisper (where it says humidity low-high) was a different color than my existing drawer, I know it's such a small detail that nobody would notice but me. My fridge is almost brand new and I'm the one who broke the drawer so I was a little sad but then realized that I could remove the edge of the drawer and replace it with my old one... VIOLA brand new drawer with purple letters! The drawer itself came so fast, I believe it was 1-2 days to my door! Thank you Part Select

I simply watched the repair video and did it! Super easy, needed start device and capacitor. As easy as unplugging the old and adding the new. The video helped and gave me confidence. Wives can fix fridges too! Saved me $2500. Looks like I'll need a new excuse if I want a new fridge.

Removed the nut holding the plastic cover plate at the top of the door. Removed the 3 nuts holding the latch to the fridge. Lifted the door up and laid it on its' side. Removed the nut holding the door cam and replaced it with the new one. removed the nut holding the lower door cam and replaced it. Put a little vaseline on both cams and re-in-stalled the door. Took less than 15 minutes and the door is like new. Watching the video on the web site was perfect.

Removed food from door. Shut off fridge. Removed dust cap at top hinge. Marked location of top hinge with masking tape so lining up when reassembling would be easier. Removed screws holding top hinge to fridge. Removed door, placed on blanket&towel. Removed old door cam. Put on new door cam. Removed old hinge cam. Put on new hinge cam. Put door back on. Replaced top hinge, lining up with tape. Replaced dust cap. Note that door did not really self close very well until it was filled with food. By far the hardest part of the whole operation was that my wife wanted to clean the fridge in the process!
