Originally ordered parts I thought would fix ice maker. When I took apart the icemaker assembly I noticed and found the actual part that went bad. Called customer service and was able to return the parts I thought would fix the ice maker, without any problems. I ordered the correct part on the same call. Within a day or so the new part arrived and was installed within 15 minutes. Thanks to the instructions & comments posted on the "Instant Repairman" link. Awesome customer service that can not be bet.

Researched the problem on the internet. Identified the icemaker control and motor assembly as the most likely culprit. Ordered a new one. Arrived in two days. Installed it in about 15 minutes. Had ice 3 hours later.

I removed the ice maker, which consist of three 1/4 inch screws to install the water fill cup and bearing. One must loosen the front panel of ice maker to install the fill cup which consist of two standard screws, slide forward enough to install new fill cup. The removal of the Icemaker control was simple, using #2 phillips screwdriver and three screws. Unplug the control and install the new one, replace the three screws and cover. Reinstall the ice maker and within one hour cubes were dropping in the bin. I saved a lot of money repairing myself, which more than covers the shipping cost. Shipping was fast, two days.

It took longer to get the part than it took to repair the water inlet. The help from the staff was very responsible and the repair direction off of the net very clear and understandable. I order the wrong part and was offered assistance and directed to the correct part than there were no issues but clear sailing.

I'm a 65 year old widow on a limited SS income, so I needed to get my refrigerator fixed as cheaply as possible. Partselect's troubleshooting guides took me right to the problem. I ordered the part on a Friday and it arrived the next Tuesday. It probably took me a little longer than it would a repairman, but I did it myself with just a screwdriver and a nut driver and it only cost me $45 instead of the $200 plus it costs my daughter to have someone else replace hers two years ago. Always remember to unplug amy electrical device before removing the covers or attempting any repair. All I had to do was remove the lower back cover on the refrigerator and, using the partselect diagram, locate the casing that covered the start relay and the overload switch on the left side of the compressor. I popped the casing off with the screwdriver, pulled the relay off (it's sits on two prongs), and remove the red terminal wire from the relay. Installation of the new relay is the reverse steps of the removal. Thanks, Partselect! I will be doing business with you again if the need ever arises.

Whirlpool Refrigerator not cooling

  • Customer: Glenn from Clinton Township, MI
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Besides the refrigerator not cooling, there was a click-buzz-click noise occurring at the rear of the refrigerator every 5-10 minutes. I started by looking up the issue online, I determined the issue was either the compressor or the starter device. I ended up ordering the replcement starter device from partselect.com. The replacement was very easy. All I had to do was pull off the rear cardboard panel, unplug the wire bundle to the starter device, and pull out the starter device.

I watched the quick video once to see the type, if it matched mine, and the difficulty. I went ahead and ordered the part and within minutes, I had the ice maker installed. The video was so well designed, I only had to watch it once!
