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!

Ice door broken letting warm air into freezer

  • Customer: Lou from Key Largo, FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

After I ordered the parts, which was very easy to do using this website I read the other comments in reference to this repair. I am in agreement with anyone that said patience is important! The repair went about as expected, the only thing I had to do different was, after I assembled the door, it would not activate. I checked the microswitches for the ice dispenser and found that the arm on the glass bracket was not hitting the switches. I shaved off part of the horn on the back of the arm and that solved the problem!

non functioning light switch in fridge

  • Customer: martin from grafton, WI
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set

This repair was super easy. there are only 5 screws to remove to get at the defective switch. 3 in the housing where the light bulbs are and 2 in the front trim piece where the cooling adjustment dials are. I never did unplug the fridge ,but probably should have although nothing bad happened. I removed all 5 screws using a 1/4" socket ( a nutdriver would work well also). there is also a small dia rod that comes down from the coolness adj. wheel that when you re-assemble goes though the middle of the wheel. The switch has only 2 wires that clip on with the push on flat type connectors. Very simple. I removed the wires and then the switch can be removed( it is only held in by 2 squeezable side clips). I put the new switch in and connected the wires , checked to see that the lights went on and off. which they did. then just put the screws back in.....done. also I would like to say that when I ordered my switch it came super fast. I ordered it online at 11:00am on a tuesday and it was on my doorstep in wisconsin by 10:00 am the next day...Thanks

Replaced parts - Ice Maker still not working

Installation was extremely easy for a novice. However, I previously replaced the icemaker control and motor assembly. That did not solve the problem. I now replaced the electronic control boards - emitter and receiver. The operational test shows the emitter and receiver are functioning properly yet the ice maker still does not work.

My water dispenser quit on the door.

I knew my ice maker was still working and I could hear that the switch on my water was still making the usual noise when tripped, so I knew that it had to be the inlet valve. I googled some videos and luckily found PartSelect.com. I used there diagnostics, looking at the percentages of other parts used to fix like problems. The part install was very easy as all I had to do was turn off the water and unplug the frig, remove the part, cut the input line and both output lines. Then slide those into the new part, with quick connects you just slide them in, the old part had compression fittings. Reattach the new part turn on the water, plug it back up, watch for leaks, your done..pretty sweet.

I just want to share with everyone what a great experience this was. I called on a Monday night after the bottom shelf in our fridge broke and juice had just spilled everywhere. Needless to say I was annoyed so when I actually got in contact with a person instead of a machine I was excited. I did not get her name but she quickly helped me locate the model number, and even described the shelf to ensure it was the correct piece. She gave me the price, took my CC#, and within minutes the part was ordered. I could not believe that the part arrived the very next day - less than 24 hours. I was very impressed. THank you for making everything so easy. A new loyal customer!

Door no longer closing on its own and remaining slightly ajar.

  • Customer: Gil from San Ramon, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy

This is a very easy fix. Begin by emptying the contents of the door. Then, just remove hinge cap and remove the three hinge screws. The door can then be lifted off the hinge pin and placed on its side. Once this is done, replace the two can pieces (one on the door and one on the frame). Then just lift the door back in place and secure the hinge. This job can be done by one person (maybe two if you need help place the door on a work surface) and will take just 15 minutes.

Ice maker stopped making ice.

The small arm in the tray for the ice maker stopped moving. I put hot water in there to see if anything was clogging up the line or the tray, but nothing was. I then pushed on the arm and it moved pretty easily. So I took off the front cover and the motor; I saw that the plastic piece connecting to the gear was broken. So I realigned and replaced the motor. Ice maker is working like a champ again.
