Refridgerator Not Cooling And Freezer Not Freezing

  • Customer: MARK from MEDINA, NY
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

Took cardboard back panel off and looked at compressor number and found right part number from the compressor start kit. It was somewhat confusing as you have to take that part of existing unit. The run capacitor is different size but worked. Worth the trouble figuring out instructions for parts but is working great right now.

Unscrewed the rear water valve and water line, and front water filter which allowed me to remove the old drip tray. New drip tray is smaller than the original tray, so I needed to put blocking in to keep tray under drip spout. Refastened the water filter, water valve and water line.

Fridge and freezer not coming on without coaxing.

Been fighting this for over a year. Sometimes the fridge and freezer would heat up past the point it should come on. Had to slide the fridge temp control back and forth until the unit came on. Researched the problem determined the thermostat to be the issue. Got the part, finally found the time, then took the top tray out, popped off the escutcheon, unplug some wire and took out the control shuttle. Removed the old and replace with the new thermostat. Re-installed everything, plugged in it in and BAM. It's working. Now just fine tuning the slides to desired temps. THANKS PARTSELECT.

Refrigerator Door Wouldn't Stay Closed

  • Customer: Robin from Alexandria, VA

This is for the refrigerator, not the freezer door which is more complicated. First empty the refrigerator door of food and removed the shelves. Remove the hinge cover on the top hinge by removing one bolt. Then, holding the door, remove the top hinge by removing the three bolts in the bracket (not the bolt in the recessed hole). Lift the door off the lower hinge and lay the door on its edge on the floor. Pry the old Door Cam out of the hole in the door with a knife (my Door Cam was ground completely flat). Insert the new Door Cam. Remove the old Lower Door Cam from the lower hinge and insert the new Lower Door Cam. Pick up the door and lower the door onto the lower hinge ensuring the lower hinge pin inserts into the hole in the Door Cam on the door. Reinstall the upper hinge and insert bolts without tightening. Align door and then tighten hinge bolts. Reattach top hinge cover and tighten the single bolt. Test the door to ensure it closes and stays closed. I had to remove the door a second time to rotate the Door Cam slightly to ensure cams were better engaged (tongue in groove style) when the door was closed. Reinstall the shelves and load the door with food.

After our four year old refrigerator door wouldn't stay closed as a do it yourself kinda gal I found this website that assisted me in an easy and inexpensive fix. The "plastic" yes, "plastic" piece on the bottom of the door was worn down to nothing. My only suggestion is to call in your order, the customer service folks will help you order the right cam for your model. The next thing is to change both cams if you have a side by side. We changed the fridge side which fixed the problem, then realized the cam on the freezer needed to be changed to make it level. Great customer service!

I called the 800 number and the lady was great to work with and helped me thru all the order process and confirmed the numbers. She also told me she would try to get the order out that day which she did and I had the part two days later. When it arrived I went to the web site and reviewed the video and went to work and all went as the video said. Thanks for the help and if i need another part I will visit your site or call.

Went online and found troubleshooting steps for this particular make, model, issue and ordered the parts recommended. Unplugged the refrigerator and removed the screws from the back panel and located the parts easily by using the instructions with pictures provided with the parts. The parts simply popped out without tools and popped back into place. Replaced the back panel and plugged in the refrigerator. Works like new.

On the left side I unscrewed the screw and replace it with a new one . The right side in had to take s file and file of the rivet. You can use a rivet gun or a metal screw to replaced the clip. Once it is finish open the refrigerator door to see how to line the kick plate into the clip. A piece of cake.
