Took old part out, put new part in. Thats not the story here, it was the ease of finding the part needed, the price was very reasonable and the service was second to none! The part arrived in less than 48hrs. (no special shipping was used) I would like to thank the people at PartSelect for a great experience. Other companies I have delt with in the past could take a few lessons in customer service from PartSelect. I highly recommend them! Patrick Spinks

Part select was great. I entered the model number and was able to locate a list of problems associated with my refrigerator. I was able to view a repair video, courtesy of part select. I followed the instructions and the repair was simple. The hard part was trying to remember how everything went back together. I unplugged the unit and removed the freezer racks. I then unscrewed the back panel within the unit. I then placed an old towel inside the unit and used a hair dryer to melt the ice build up inside. I also removed the light bulb and then removed ice maker. I then located the old defrost thermostat and replaced it as demonstrated in the video. I then located temp sensor and replaced it. It took longer trying to secure the rear panels than the actual repair. My mistake was I had secured the ice maker unit before securing the fan panel. I would secure the large panel first, then followed by the light bulb/fan panel. The ice maker should go in last. It has been 8 days since the repair and it still working! The total cost was $27.

After watching some videos on U tube on how to check the mother board, I did some checking and found out that all the voltages and resistances were OK, so I ordered the fan, the thermistor and a temperature sensor.I got the parts really quick, just a couple of days.After I got the parts I watched the videos suggested in the parts select web page, and I was able to install everything without problems.Now my fridge is working fine, with excellent cooling.

Auger plastic broken

I am an 80-year old female, and though I do minor repairs around the house, this is the first on a refrigerator part. The instruction film was most helpful. I had a lot of trouble getting the hard plastic section out of the front. It took me 3 hours, and all was working well, but the last few days, the ice comes out mostly crushed, rather than cubed. I also have a problem of overfill in the ice cube trays, causing the drippings to freeze, inhibiting the auger. Any suggestions?

Based on the site, I figured the problem was the electronics board or the defrost sensor. After some multimeter work, I was pretty sure that it was the board; however, the defrost sensor was inexpensive so I bought both. I watched the videos, and the work was pretty much the way it was described. No problems or unforeseen issues.

bad design from GE auger not strong enough

Removed three phillips head screws, I used a butter knife vice a flat head screw driver to slip between the housing and turn unit, the knife is thinner. Left hand threads on the holding nut turn off. Take off turning fingers, place in order. To ensure the problem does not happen again do not buy any more G E products. This is the fourth time I had to fix this problem in three years. The whole ice making system is poorly designed.

Watching the outstanding, detailed video provided the insight and confidence necessary to place the part order and complete the repair. The most difficult part of the procedure was removal of the front panel that identifies the buttons for various functions (i.e. water, ice, crushed ice, etc). Note that this panel differs slightly from one model to another so the process may be slightly more difficult than pictured in the video. Our refrigerator has removable decorator panels which I removed first (both above and below the dispenser section), an additional step I strongly recommend for owners of models with such panels. To do so, a male Torx socket is required to remove screws at the top of the door, allowing the metal side panel on the left to be removed, prior to sliding the decorator panels out. Now onto removing the front panel as in the video - although the video repairman completed this step without any tools, it must be CAREFULLY pried by hand. Experience has taught me that older plastic parts that "snap in" often become fatigued and suffer stress fractures if not breaking off entirely. This is a fairly rigid piece of plastic on our unit that wasn't cooperative until I coaxed it from one (left) side with a large, flat screwdriver and a little twisting motion to get things started. Once I was able to pop one corner loose, the other 7 connecting tabs were relatively easy to remove (there are 8 total - 2 on each side as I recall). The rest of the process was simple, exactly as demonstrated in the video. Thanks SO MUCH for all of the expertise and high production values that made this repair "a piece of cake". Incidentally, by simply removing the old solenoid ASAP, the door snaps shut, sealing off the freezer compartment while you wait for your new part to arrive.

Replaced the broken auger. I followed the instructions post on the Partselect.com webpage for the replacement auger. The most difficult part was removing the ice crusher housing becuase I was afraid of breaking the housing while prying the tabs away from the side of the ice bucket. Otgherwise it was a 10 minute job. Thanks PartSelect.
