Water was leaking where filter fit into filter base

  • Customer: Nathan from Dickson, TN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I was able to take away the trim covering the parts with a nutdriver. The base was disconnected using a phillips head screwdriver. The only real issue was how to disconnect the plastic water lines from the old base and connect them to the new one. I finally realized I just had to cut the lines where they entered the filter base because they would not pull out. I then finally understood that to install them into the new base I just had to push them in securely. The lines were long enough to do this but probably would not be long enough to install another filter base. In that event I do not know what all would have to be done. The leak had been going on for years (it only leaked when water was running to the ice machine or water dispenser). It is great having it repaired and we hope to get quite a few more years out of this old fridge.

Support Broken and would not support crisper

  • Customer: Robert from Columbia, SC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Because of the design of the support, this could have been a difficult job. However, with the video that was provided when I selected the part, it was not a problem. All you have to do is knock the center pin through the support and remove the old support. Pull the pin out of the wall of the unit and push the new support in and drive the new pin in until it is flush. That's it!

Refrigerator door hinge was worn down and every time the door opened it made a loud noise that made us wonder if the door was eventually going to fall off!

  • Customer: Shirley from Oldsmar, FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench set

Once the part arrived, we followed directions to remove the refrigerator door. We removed the hinge cover which was a two-piece topping on the refrigerator. We then were able to remove the door and replace the lower Hinge Bearing. We put the door back on, replaced the cover and the door now opens and closes quietly and smoothly. We are senior citizens and not particularly "handy"....figured we saved ourselves $100. or so. Good deal.

Tabs that hang the crisper broke

Ordering replacement parts was easy! Expected a simple pull out old plug, insert new plug.... Not sure if it comes from factory like this or if this had been previously repaired poorly, but the broken plug was heavily glued in place. Took some serious finess work to remove without serious damage. Once out, it was simple plug in

Freezer Cold, but Refrigerator not Cold

  • Customer: Debbie from Mount Juliet, TN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

We replaced the damper, but it didn't fix the problem. We then purchased and replaced the thermistor. (We had previously replaced the defrost thermostat). The refrigerator side is now cooling better, but not enough. The damper doesn't seem to be opening. So we have now unplugged the damper and left the opening between the refrigerator propped open and the refrigerator side is now cool enough. (We had previously tried keeping the damper open before we replaced the thermistor and the refrigerator didn't cool off. So the thermistor did fix something, but the damper doesn't seem to have been the problem).

Repair as illustrated was right on. Repair was easy. No problem except still no water for ice or drinking. The valve was not the problem. Filter was replaced prior to valve replacement. Must be a electric switch some where. 3 Yrs ago I have replaced the water activation plastic lever for drinking which was a bit difficult and it turned out ok.

I was worried that the support was a permanent fixture in the refrigerator wall. But I pried it out and replaced it with the new part. Holes were exactly the same size so the new part easily replaced the old one.
