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.

  • Customer: Mike from Frankfort, IL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

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.

Refrigerator door would not close properly

  • Customer: Charles from Riverside, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the upper hinge cover and then the the hinge itself. Then lifted the door off the lower hinge peg. I placed a blanket on my pool table and positioned the door on it. The bottom screws were a little difficult to get the nutdriver seated so I used a quarter inch drive with socket to remove the screws. The replacement Closing Cam was quickly inserted and reassembled the hinge and lubricated with vaseline. Next I removed the Door Cam that was still on the peg on the refrigerator (it was completely worn flat). Quick work for this too. I tried to set the door back on the pivot hinge but eventually I needed another person to guide the door onto the peg. Reassembled the top hinge and voila, the door works just like new.

Drilled holes where pins had sheared off. Replaced pins with 4-40 x 1" screws and nuts and fastened switches and spacers on bracket. Used Loctite threadlocker to prevent nuts from loosening and installed bracket. So far, both ice and water dispensers are working fine.

Water overflowed icemaker

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

My first try was to replace the water inlet valve. New valve was a good bit different than the original but not too hard to figure out. The main water inlet is on the inside rather than the outside. Flex hose and a stick in connector were included and I was able to work through that. But, when I turned it on the water still over flowed. The only thing left was the Ice maker. I ordered a new one. It came broken into several pieces. I ordered another, it arrived overnight with expediated shipping. install took maybe 15 minutes. problem solved. The company refunded me the full charge for the damaged ice maker and most of the charge for expediated shipping on the replacement. I'm happy and my wifes very happy.

Ice Maker was overflowing into ice bin when filling

After first replacing the water valve, the issue with our ice maker remained so we ordered the ice maker unit after watching the video at partselect.com. It couldn't have been easier. I had the whole unit replaced in less than 10 mins. It took about an hour for it to cycle and fill, so my husband thought it wasn't working, but I wanted to let it be and see what happened...and an hour later I heard it fill. It's been about 2 weeks and it's working perfectly. Partselect is officially our 'go-to' site from now on!!
