Right Side End Cap door hinge pin broke from the plastic

  • Customer: William from Puyallup, WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Very easy as described by everyone else here. One tricky part slowed me down a bit. When you try to remove the End Cap after removing the screws you find that it is connected to the climate control bar on the rear part of the fridge cabinet. There is no screw connection, just a tab on the end of the piece, near the center of the cabinet. Just pull the End Cap away from the side, pivoting the entire unit toward the center of the fridge. This will allow the tab to slide out of the opening in the back.

Remove two hanging drawers (fruit and vegetable). Remove top glass and two supports for the chef's pantry. Removed chef's pantry. Remove three large screws from the pantry end cap (front, middle and rear). The end cap can now be removed. NOTE: The pantry drawer slide will still be attached to the end cap. Once the end cap is removed detach the rail by removing two smaller screws. TIP: Use either a nut driver or socket verses a screw driver it works out better. At this point replace the end cap and install in reverse of removal.

Easy to replace part - remove panel at the bottom rear of the appliance, unplug from the compressor and connect the new relay. Unfortunately, it was not the relay on my appliance -- looks like the compressor has gone out -- new fridge for me

I pulled the frige out, took off the cover from the bottom with a nut driver. Took off the safety clip then pulled the plug out from the relay then the relay came out. Replaced the part and reinstalled the same way. This was really easy and fast.
