worn door gasket needed to be replaced

Went to DIY for directions. Found directions specific to my GE refrigerator model. Followed them to the letter - fixed in less than 10 minutes. Gasket simply needed to be warmed with hair dryer to soften enough to straighten the crimps from the folding needed for packing. Lift the old gasket off the door by prying a starting point with a flat head screwdriver and peeling it off. Then clean the door with soap and water, dry it, and press the new gasket in place. Magnets inside the gasket make the connection. Smmoth it all the wat around, apply a little petroleum jelly to the gasket on the door's hinge side to prevent the door from sticking and you're done.

Original equipment valve ran from 2003 to 2010 until a mouse got on top of valve and did a number. Valve purchased in 2010 (installed to solve the same water flow problem occuring in 2012) was installed. I constructed a small tin shield over the valve unit in 2010 to protect the top of the valve from future possible damage. Two years later, the valve failed again - water flowing in freezer. (These Chineese replacement parts should really last longer than two years - I feel they insure future sales by making them poorly) - Both times, the outlet tube above the ice maker was completely iced up and a good deal of time was spent with a hair dryer to melt this ice. (This ice problem can be observed by looking across top of freezer compartment to observe the water outlet area. Turn off water supply and unplug fridge. Four screws were removed to get to the ice maker and then two top screws were removed to pull out ice maker unit (I left hose attached and unit hanging with some support) When installing the double valve, I blew on the loose water tube going up to the ice maker to be sure it was ice free. Taking the old double valve unit out was simple, just remember to press in on the plastic structure around the plastic tubes before pulling out the water tubes. Reattach electrical connections. Press the plastic tubes in as far as they will go for a water tight connection. Reinstall water supply hose and tighten nut. With ice melted, reinstall ice maker with two screws and the front ice maker panel with four screws. Plug in the fridge, turn on the water and you should have ice again as soon as the freezer gets down to 15 degrees.

I watched the video online that related to the parts that I needed to repair. I used a putty knife to insert between the sides of the housing unit to be able to remove it. That was probably the most difficult step. The auger came right out and I was able to replace it with the new one. Of course, reassembly was much easier.

I removed the ice container with the crusher and saw the crusher cover had pieces of it missing and the broken parts matched the broken areas. I removed the main cover off of the ice crusher and then removed the crusher assembly. Removed the C clip on the auger shaft and then removed ice crusher cover. Received the part and reversed the procedure and re-assembled the the ice container and crusher. Easy job.

Freezer coils icing up and temperature warm

I had a frig several years ago do the same thing -- freezer coils icing up and temperature warm. I had watched the repairman come in and take the back off the freezer and install some part, I knew not what. So I got on YouTube and four this website with instructions and directions of how the put the part in and which part it was. I am good at trouble shooting and was very comfortable after watching the video of what to order. I ordered the part. The instructions were clear. After the coils had thawed, it took less than 30 minutes to install the new part. I installed a Defrost Heater. My refrigerator has worked ever since. I am not a mechanic nor a fixer upper. I am a 60 year old female school teacher.

Was about to return the part because I didn't think I could replace it. Went on line to your web site to get address for return and noticed a video for the repair. Watched the video and repaired the ice maker in no time .Video was very clear and instructive. Thanks, I'll use your service again.

Refrigerator and Freezer warming and cooling. Ice would melt and then refreeze. Freezer temp would warm to 25 then back to 0, refrig temp would warm to 50 then back to 34.

We first read that we should thoroughly clean the coils which we did. They were very dirty, full of dust. This seemed to help for a couple days then the hot and cold started up again and was even worse. We did some research on the internet and all indications led us to change the main control board. We found PartSelect ordered the part, received it super fast (within 2 days), changed the part in less than 15 mins and our refrigerator works like new. No trouble since the repair. Saved a lot of time and money doing the repair ourselves.
