Slide Rail Drawers were broken

The ordering process thru PartSelect was simple. Model number got you to the drawings and from there it was " Click to the Cart". Delivery was as expected, but better than most companies. Replacement took only minutes. One thing to remember for future purchases is that hardware does not come along with the part. I had the exsisting screws so I was able to install quickly. I would definitely use PartSelect in the future.

Noticed the fan was not working properly and went online and found out that was the cause. I immediately ordered the part that night at 8:21pm and received the motor and fan blade the next day. I flipped the refrigerator on its side and removed the 3 hex bolts, took off the fan blade first and removed the wires from the motor. I put in the new motor and then added on the new blade and put the 3 hex bolts back on and the wires. The whole process took about 30 minutes. Piece of cake.

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

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.

Followed easy video instructions. Loosened the necessary bolts, etc. Replaced hinge assembly, lined up door, lubed the hinge with vasoline. Works perfectly now. May purchase another assembly as spare as it appears this may be a common repair issue.

Fridge cam broke, door barely closed and crooked

I followed your terrific video. I first got all tools ready, covered a table in cardboard, and removed food from the fridge door. I removed the cap and screws on top of the door hinge. Lifting the door off was simple, and after laying the door on the table, the retaining screw was easily loosened, and the cam screw removed. The only problem was that half the thin gasket under the broken cam was missing. No new gasket came with the part. I wanted the new cam to lay flat, so I made a partial gasket from a matchbook cover and filled the gap. It all went back together quickly. Just have tools ready beforehand. Ten minute job, unless you have to make a new gasket or part of one. Thanks, guys.

Cam Hinge Replacement Refrigerator Door

I watched the "How To" video on the Parts Select web site twice. The video was very helpful, kind of like having someone right there with you showing you how to replace the hinge. I emptyed the door shelves, removed the top hinge hexscrews and easily lifted the door off the lower hinge, pieces of the broken cam hinge on the door fell off. I set the door on the floor in front of the sink with the handle edge on the floor. I unbolted the hinge and installed the new one. I loosened one screw on the door cam hinge and removed the other, easily replacing the broken part. Before tightening the screws I checked to make sure the hinge hole in the door was not blocked by the new cam hinge. I lifted the door and water ran out from somewhere. I tried to set the door on the lower hinge several times with no luck. I rechecked the hole, it was still clear. I tried placing the door on the refrigerator using the seal to hold it in place, that worked but I couldn't get the door to drop down onto the hinge. I played with it some more and finally got it in place, reinstalled the top hinge, mopped up the water and tried the door. It didn't self close. I adjusted the top hinge a couple of times and applied a little silicone to the hinges, it still didn't self close. I told my wife to make sure the door closes completely and reloaded the stuff into door. After a couple of days it now closes by itself like it's supposed to. In retrospect, I was alone doing the replacement and it really was an easy job but a second person to help line up the lower hinge would have helped a lot.

I watched the repair video. Replaced the cam on the bottom of the door and the hinge pin. Now the door closes on its own, just like brand new.

Freezer door would not close properly

Using the #2 Phillips screwdriver I removed the top hinge cover from the top of the freezer door. Next I used the 5/16 nut driver to remove the 2 bolts holding the top hinge in place. Once it was removed I was able to lift the door off the bottom hinge. Placing the door on a flat work surface I loosened the bottom bolt holding the cam in place. I next removed the bolt holding the hinge in place. I was then able to remove the broken cam and replace it with the new one. I then replaced the bottom bolt making sure the hole for the cam and the hole for the hinge are lined up. I then tightened the bottom hinge bolts. I carefully placed the door back on the bottom hinge and put the top hinge back on.
