Refrigerator Door would not close on its own

  • Customer: Enrique Pulido from Miami, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Set out an area large enough to lay the door down once I took it off the refrigerator. Took off the top screws and hinge. Had my 12 year old so help me with the door and hand me all the tools so I could quickly change out the parts and not leave the Refrigerator open for too long. I think from the moment we took the door off to the moment it was back on was probably about 5-6 minutes tops. That is how easy this was. All the parts fit and thank you to PartSelect and it great website that advised me of the second part that went with the first if not I would never have known. Thanks again!!

Ice maker quit working and had a bussing sound

Three screws takes the old one off, 2 on top and 1 on bottom. Only problem I couldn't get the wiring harness off. I had my son look at it and he ended up cutting his hand and getting stitches(bracket that holds wiring harness is sharp), but he did get it off. I went online at parts select to ask how to get wiring harness off, but they wanted $30 to tell me. When I got the new one I could see that there is a bump on wiring harness connection that goes into a hole on ice maker, push that down and it comes off easily. Also after I installed the new one it didn't work the first day, I opened it up and looked for a button to push but didn't find any. I also pulled the lever up and turned it off and then back on, it starting working after that I'm not sure what worked but it is working now. Doesn't come with any instructions.

Replaced cracked door shelfs. removed old ones and replaced. The beautiful thing about this repair was that I could not get this part from our local parts supplier unless we did $500.00 worth of business with them per year, and we don't, so I looked up Partselect and not only were you cheaper, I had my parts in less time than I would have with supplier. Thanks!

Crisper Drawer was cracked.

I opened the refrigerator door, being careful to leave the freezer door closed. After verifying that refrigerator light was on, I squatted down to be at the same level as the crisper drawer. Firmly grasping the old crisper drawer by the convenient built-in handle, I pulled the drawer until it was fully opened. I removed the contents of the old crisper drawer, noting the original location of each item, so that I can place the contents into the replacement drawer in the same place. Grasping the old crisper drawer, I pulled outward and lifted slightly until the drawer was off the track and out of the refrigerator. Using both hands, I placed the rear of the new crisper drawer against the drawer track, lining the tabs on either side so that they would enter the track. I applied gentle, rearward pressure, guiding the new crisper door onto the track. This step was a little tricky. I had to wiggle the new crisper door up and down a bit, to get the new crisper door past the "stop bumps" in the track. After the new crisper door was sufficiently in the track to be supported by the track, I replaced the contents in (what I thought) the same locate from which they were removed from the old crisper drawer. After placing all contents back into the new crisper drawer, I applied a little more rearward pressure until the new crisper drawer was in the fully closed position. I then closed the refrigerator door. I quickly reopened the refrigerator door, to ensure the light went out. It was on. I slowly closed the refrigerator door, keeping an eye on the gap between the refrigerator door seal and the refrigerator cabinet, and noted the light did, in fact, go out when the door was about a half inch from being fully closed. Returning to a fully standing position, I announced to my wife that I repaired the broken crisper drawer. The congratulated me on my accomplishment and I felt a rush of satisfaction over a job well done.

Looked up youtube video to check how to test if it was the water fill valve, icemaker, etc. Checked and it was the icemaker. Removed old icemaker; ordered new one from parts select. Used existing wiring harness in freezer and hooked up new icemaker easily. New icemaker works perfectly.

Replaced ice maker. Ice maker was cheaper if you used parts from old ice maker! Very easy to install! Ice bin auger was a bit more involved, but with the attached video underneath the explanation of the part, it was soooo easy to replace! Now we have ice again! Thank you so much!

Received new drawer in 2 days and effortlessly exchanged it for broken one. Color of writing didn't match but I just removed it from the old one and replaced it. Very pleased.

The refrigerator would not defrost and would freeze up and no longer cool.

Turn off power to the frig. Remove the shelves and back brackets from the freezer, then with a 1/4" nut driver remove the nuts holding the rear metal panel in place. Once removed the defrost thermostat is right in front of you. You will have to clip the wires from the old t-stat because they are in a harness. Once clipped, strip the wires back, wire in the new t-stat, add wire nuts and put it all back together. Very easy job to do, works great. Thanks Parts Select, Mike.
