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.

The refridgerator door would not shut on its own. It had to be pushed completely shut every time it was opened.

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.

Unplugged the fridge and removed the cover from the Icemaker control assembly. Then remove the three phillips head screws, remove the Icemaker control. put the new control in place and use the three screws removed in previous step, replace the cover and plug the fridge back in. in a few hours you will have some ice.

Replaced the icemaker control assembly and ice mold. Icemaker is working perfectly now. We replaced the ice mold (tray) because my husband read on the internet that the ice mold loses its nonstick coating and the ice sticks to the mold, and eventually burns out the control assembly.

This was a very easy repair and only took about 20 minutes. Unfortunately, after reordering, and installing the second motor, the intermittent noise is still there. Other than the occasional buzzing noise, that sounds like it is coming from the evaporator fan area, the refrigerator runs fine.

Removed the door (3 bolts on top). Removed the old plastic door closing cam on the bottom. Installed the new one. It was too tall (probably my fault), so I trimmed it with garden shears (it was a tubular piece of plastic). If you do this, be very careful, as the shears cut through the plastic MUCH easier than I thought. Popped the new one on, re-secured the door, and it works great now. Thank you partselect!

I did a Google Search for a 1998 Whirlpool ED22RF, looked for trouble Isolation procedures. Don't remember the web sites but two parts were mentioned namely the timer and the thermal relay. After making sure it was unplugged I removed the back lower insulation panel, removed the red wire from the relay located on the left side of the condenser and unplugged the relay. I examined it for physical damage before checking with an ohmmeter and found the thermal relay sounded like it was full of sand when I shook it. So we found PartSelect and searched for the thermal relay and found an exact picture with the part number and ordered the part. We received the $30 part 5 days later. Only took 15 minutes and two tools to install. Thank you for saving us a few hundred dollars.
