A bit of a tight squeeze for my hands, but very basic as I followed the instructions and watched the installation video. I only had the fridge unplugged for about 20 min..The fridge is as quiet, as it was brand new. The only tool I needed was the 1/4 inch socket wrench. A portable lantern was very helpful as well. Runs very quiet now, like new! Thx!!!

Unplug appliance, turn off water supply valve to fridge. Remove rear cover and locate water inlet valve on lower right corner. Remove 2 screws holding valve in place. Pay attention to water line locations. Unplug 2 connections on valve. They are different size so you can't put them back on wrong. Remove all lines from bad valve. Cut all ends off lines and insert into new valve. Make sure they go where they belong. Press firmly into place. Reconnect electrical plugs and screw valve back in place. Turn water supply valve back on and check for leaks. If all is good put rear cover back on , plug appliance back in and your work is done. Easy replacement job.

I accidentally broke the arm that distributes the cubes to the ice bucket about a year ago. Just recently, the malfunction caused the entire thing to freeze up because the frozen cubes weren't cleared from the ice tray.

Remove 1 screw from the cover that hides the wiring harness, pull out the assembly and disconnect it. Swap the bottom mounting tray to the new ice maker and reverse the process. Way easier than I anticipated. No need to freeze your hands in the freezer, once you have the old one out you're working on the counter.

I went to the PartSelect online videos and watched this one: "Refrigerator Repair - Replacing the Door Closing Cam (GE Part# WR2X4901)," to assess whether or not this could be a do-it-yourself repair. Even though the subject of the video was demonstrated on a refridgerator model different from mine, it appeared similar enough for me to get the idea of how to accomplish the repair, so I used the PartSelect site to guide me to the parts needed to do it. The parts came in and I once again watched the video and then proceeded with the repair. The repair was very simple and easily accomplished - took a half hour total. If you watch the video referred to above, you'll see exactly the way I did it. My experience precisely mirrored that shown in the video. One hint: I did spend some time wondering if I should have emptied the refridgerator before starting the job, and decided not to. It was the wise choice as the job went so fast, removing all the food would have been a waste of time. The door was off maybe 20 minutes total, and that was only enough time to raise the temperature inside about 5 degrees, which was quickly recovered when I re-installed the door. I can't say enough good about the PartSelect site, for the superb guidance in parts selection, as well as the extremely helpful how-to videos. I probably would not have attempted the repair on my own if not for the help this site provided. Thank you very much for this valuable service.
