I unplugged the appliance removed the back cover exposing the fan motor.Unplugged the wiring harness from the motor assembly.unbolted the fan motor mounting bracket,and removed. Next I unbolted the fan and motor assembly from the mounting bracket.( I pulled the whole bracket out so it would be easier to reinstall the motor and fan assembly,then reinstalled the bracket with the motor and fan already installed) I installed the bracket assembly with the motor and fan back to its location,plugged the wiring harnessback to the motor. replaced the bask pannel ,and plugged the 110 back in the wall socket

I have a grandson that works for Pantex. He replaced the fan and motor in less than ten minutes using only the nutdriver tool. My cost compared to local supplier and labor was about 75% less.

Ice Maker leaking proved to be a cracked value (not pump)

  • Customer: David from Pittsburg, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

We had the coldest winter in 114 years in north Texas (must be global warming...) and our outdoor kitchen ice maker value assembly frozen and cracked.

1) Remove bottom panel screws using nut driver
2) Remove door screws
3) Unhook two power connectors from value assembly
4) Release water supply quick connects
5) Replace value
6) Re-install door - this is a a little tricky there is a spring on each side which slows the door when opening and this pulls the door down which means the screw are not properly aligned by default. You basically have to pull the door up( a second set of hands help) and attach the screws and then let it go.

My problem was in reading one of the other posts about installing

The post I read said start at the middle and work your way out towards the left and right. This was incorrect. All I did was secure one end to the torx screw and tighten it down. I then slowly pulled the wire as tight as I could around each insulator, going slow so as to not kink the wire (very easy to do). Once I was at the other torx screw I used a pair of linesman plyers to gently tug each wire tighter, I needed an extra pair of hands to hold the grid down. Once everything was tight I wrapped the last torx screw and tightened. Here's what no one is saying, you will not get the wire as tight as it originally was but that's ok. After I got everything reinstalled the ice maker is making ice like a champ.

The wires in the cutter grid assembly were briken

Replaced the assy. But, I would have been happier if you sold just the wires. I could have replaced the wires at a much lower cost and may have taken less than an hour to replace the wires.Still happy - the ice maker works.

Broken ice cutter grid

Unplugged the unit. Removed 2 screws to remove front cover to access the cutter grid.removed 2 screws to the cutter grid, unsnapped power connector and removed broken grid. Slid new grid in place, reconnected power connector, replaced screws, plugged in ice maker and slid back in place. Very easy!!!

The tunes were moldy and the pump didn't work.

The repair was fairly easy. Take out screws and lift top of ice maker but do not take off. Having 2 people to do this helps. Clean all parts with calcium deposits. Replace all moldy or broken parts. Some parts are harder to replace. The back screw of the pump is difficult to install. Use a magnetic screw driver for help holding the screw. We used a little wax to keep the screw on the driver. The ice maker works better than it has in 2 years.

Motor sounded like a small little airplane under my fridge, very loud.

Unplugged the fridge first then took the bottom panel off with a 1/4 inch nut driver. Disconnected the wiring & used my ratchet to reach the 3 screws that held the motor. Took me longer to clean the bottom of the fridge then the installation.

Top grid replaced

My top grid was broken. After removing the old wire and loosening the screws on both ends of the old wire, I carefully unrolled the new wire so there were no kinks. Next, I put one end of the wire in a vice to hold it in place. I put a loop in the other end and attached it to the one end of the frame. You can then hold the grid in both hands and put tension on the wire as you make the wraps. When you get to the end, attach it to the grid screw and tighten the screw while maintaining tension. You can then cut the remaining wire and reinstall the grid. I think this was much easier than the directions that came with the wire. Took 5 minutes to install the wire on the grid and 15 to 20 minutes to everything back together and start making ice.

Refrigerator was very noisy. Investigation revealed that the condensor fan motor was going bad.

First let me say that the instructional video on your website for this repair was very informative. My son and I watched that before we began the repair. We unplugged the unit first. After removing the back cover, he unplugged the old fan's electrical connection, and then proceeded to remove the fan and bracket from the unit. We then removed the old fan from the bracket, installed the new one and then he reinstalled the new fan and bracket back into the unit. He used the included electric adaptor cable to complete the electrical connection, plugged in the refrigerator briefly to confirm all was well (it was), then replaced the back cover and we were done.

I was able reassemble the unit with the new grid assemble. Now have fresh ice. Thanks Partselect... you made this do-it-your-selfer very HAPPY! My wife cannot beleive I got the unit back together.
