I replaced the low voltage board behind the water dispenser and the dual water valve but this did not correct the water/ice problem. The freezer worked great but the refrigerator did not work at all. I replaced the Motor Fan and this did not fix the problem. The last thing to replace was the high voltage electric board in the back. This fixed all the problems. All the parts were very easey to replace. Amd the directions that came with the parts and on the web site we great.

Removed food from refrigerator shelf, removed shelf from fridge, removed broken parts, cleaned everything (yuck), snapped on new parts - no instructions required. Now that I don't have to look at those cracked and broken parts every time I open the door, I no longer hate my refrigerator.

Tab on pantry side broke off. Missing clips on kickpate.

  • Customer: edmund from Vergennes, VT
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The clips were easy to install, and no tools were required. Took about ten minutes, with most of the time associated with looking up on your website to find out which end of the clip went on the upside of the kickplate. Would have been nice to know which was the top side of the clip. The pantry end cap was more involved but still quite easy. Two bolts removed with a socket wrench, removed both the end cap and the piece behind it to remove the mechanism which controls the coldness of the drawer. Replace all within 45 minutes.

Replaced the part, I'm a former appliance service business owner but if you have a small bit of mechanical ability you can change this yourself. Be Careful though internl workings seem flimsy and you might break another part that might ruin your day.

Removed pantry slide out drawer, removed both upper drawers, removed glass shelf (below 2 drawers). Removed the front glass shelf support. It just sits in a grove, comes right off.Used a ratcheting screw driver,with no tip, to remove the screws holding the end cap. Disconnected the air flow adjusting lever from end cap.Cleaned the whole area with a sponge and soap and water.lol.( amazing how dirty it can get being out of sight). reinstalled the lever on the new end cap, screwed it in place, put everything back together, DONE!It took about 20 min, including cleaning.Oh yeah, had an "inservice" with my grandaughter on how to close the 'fridge door.
