I ordered the part, within two days we had received it. My husband put the part in and I really don't know what he used doing so. All I know is that the light works now and we don't have to use the flashlight. Thanks a lot.

Since my refrig is 18 yrs. old and I never had to replace it, took a little long to remove trim piece on the outside. After that repair went smoothly. I still have problem with water collecting inside on the bottom of the freezer, might have a leak somewhere. Ice maker is functioning correctly.

Gently pry out switch in door jam with screwdriver and pull both connectors off and put connectors on new switch then push switch back into the hole. Looked it up on the internet and video showed how to and also had link to new part, ordered and less than a week later the fridge is bright again. I have an older freezer also and it seems that they all use the same switches. Very Very easy

The solenoid in the dispenser was overheated due to the control board failure. After I rerplaced the board I found the heat had distorted the plastic crank and jammed the solenoid action. The plastic crank was easy to replace. Now after expending approx. $75 everything works normally!

No Ice...

  • Customer: Eduardo from Arlington, VA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Super easy, had my 15 year old do it (with my supervision).
Followed very clear Instructions that come with the replacement...
But, he could not get to the plug location until he removed 4 screws holding the motor assembly that spins the ice in the drawer and moved it out of the way...
Followed the rest of the instructions...
Works like a charm.

water was dripping from this valve

  • Customer: Michael from Bryan, TX
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the valve from the fridge with a nut driver, this allowed me to disconnect the two lines and the water main inlet. Re attach the main line and cut off ends of both plastic lines with a razor knife and re insert the two lines. Last was to connect the main water inlet and tighten . The last thing was to turn on the water and check for leaks and we had none so put the fridge back in its proper place and job done. Thank you for your help Michael

Door didn't shut cleaning, by itself

I watched the video online, and said, "hey, I can do that." And yep, I did. I'm pretty comfortable with handyman work - but had never tackled a frig door before. The door closing cam that had completely come apart turned out to be straight forward to fix with the replacement part.

The ice in door chute was frosting up and the ice maker was freezing into a solid block.

I did not have to remove the outer frame as shown in the video. This model is a Monogram with custom raised panel inserts that match my kitchen cabinets. The front plate of the control panel just pops off from the bottom by pulling out and the rest of the repair is essentially just like the video. The flapper fixed the problem! The GE side by side is 15 years old and still working well.

Broken ice maker replacement

Installing the actual ice maker was quite easy. What takes most of the time is preparing the freezer for the install. Need to remove all shelving, (and the door) to gain access to the unit. The ice maker is simple to install once access is achieved. Putting everything back together takes some time.

I'm a real novice at appliance repair but learned a lot from this effort. After doing enough online research and watching videos, I diagnosed the problem with my 20 year old ice maker. It was working, just not getting water. So I ordered a new water valve, much cheaper than the part Sears recommended. I easily hooked up the new valve but the old copper water supply line was leaking so I ordered a $7 pex line from Home Depot. Hooked it all back up and now I'm in business, and saved some money too!

I followed a video supplied with the e-mail notification of the shipment of the part. This was one of the best experiences I have had with locating, purchasing and installing a replacement part for an appliance.
