The rail crisper has tabs at either end to hold it in place with the crisper drawer brackets. One of the tabs broke and the crisper drawers could not slide in and out properly.

The leftover broken piece of the rail was removed from the crisper shelf supporting brackets and the new replacement installed in place using the front and rear tabs inserted into the crisper support bracket. Both crisper drawers now slide in and out properly.

Plastic hinges broke on Chef Pantry Door

I pulled out the pantry drawer, the two crisper drawers above, and the glass shelf and supports.
I used a 1/2" nutdriver to take out 3 nuts and then reused them to put in the new pieces. Save your existing hardware since new nuts were not supplied. This was so easy! The right one was a little more challenging because of the temperature control. Take a minute to see how it works when you take it off the old one. That will help you recreate it on the new one.
I am a fairly handy woman. I did ask one of my guy friends to help me find the right tool to use.
This was really easy. I think the original design is cheap and poorly done, especially considering how much we paid for this fridge.

I have never used the ice maker because I have a well and didn't want to usewell water to make ice. I usually make ice with bottled water.
I decided to try making ice with gravity fed water from a converted water fountain placed on a higher level than the refrigerator, locater in my garage next to the kitchen.
When I looked at the rear of the frig. I saw a copper pipe (on the bottom of the frig.) that lead to a valve, with a plastic tube that went to the freezer. I didn't think that the gravity fed water could go down to the bottom and return to the freezer at the top, so I cut the plastic tube, and fed the water directly to the ice maker.
I only put a small amount of water in my water source because I wasn't shure what would happen. The water filled the tray and the rest of the water went to the container that catches the ice.
I did get one tray of ice. I later found that the valve that the copper pipe went to, has a 7 minute timer that only allows a small amount of water to pass.
My next effort will be to connect to the copper pipe and see if it will allow the gravity fed water to rise to the ice maker. Wish me luck

The parts drawing was easy and your service was really quick.
Thank you

Researched your web site - determined best bet was to replace the ice maker unit. Ordered the new ice maker and believe it it or not it was here in 3 days and installed EXACTLY as it was stated. Frankly it was a snap and was easier than ever expected. Thanks

I removed all shelving. Used a cordless screwdriver with nut piece on end and took out nuts. Then had to CAREFULLY remove the mechanism that lets in cold air by gradation from the old end cap. Then put these parts on the new end cap. This took some thinking. Finally reset endcap and put unit back together again. Sucess and I am 61 and female.

Leaking icemaker/leaking water dispenser

I also ordered a solenoid valve which solved the water dispenser problem. The vidio presentation on your website plus the personal experiences enabled me to easily install the icemaker which solved the leaking icemaker problem. Two small surprises, I thought the electrical wire plugged into the rear of the refrigerator and I didn't know that I would have to cut out part of the icemaker to accomodate for the refil tube. No problem on both surprises. Thanks
