The pin on the pantry end cap broke so that the pantry lid was not functional.

Replaced the pantry end cap by first removing the pantry drawer. Then removing both crisper drawers and the first shelf with the plastic bars that hold it in place. Removed the slider that the pantry drawer rests on to move in and out -just needed a small flat head screwdriver for that. Then removed three nuts holding the end cap with a nut driver. End cap snap right out and new one went right in. Screwed in three nuts. Then reattached the slider for pantry draw with two screws. Reassembled shelf, crisper drawers and then slid in pantry drawer - reattached the pantry lid to the pins on either end cap. Very easy. The activity that took longest was acquiring the nut driver - I didn't have the right tool. All in all simple job.

had to replace the whole right side panel, came off fairly easy, but to get the adustable rod out and back into the new panel was somewhat difficult. I found out you can bend more than what you think to get it out and back in. It is the rod that adjusts the air flow

Watched the video on the web site and then followed the instructions. It was very easy to change. After changing it, I filled it with water from a cup to get it started making ice since the video does not address how to do this. It has been working well ever since. If you are handy with tools, you can do this.

I put in a new ice maker because it was not in very good condition. The water valve had a very slow leak which allowed water to freeze on the way to the ice maker and plugged the line. This problem was in one of your repair articles all of which were very welcome

The little knob that holds the door onto the deli bin had snapped. I ordered the part, it arrived within a couple of days. I emptied the necessary shelves, cleaning as I went of course. Removed the old part and installed the new part- instructions weren't necessary. I had the part back in within a few minutes. Someone else had reported that it took longer to remove the shelves and replace them than it did to replace the end cap. I found my experience was the same. I was very proud that I didn't have to ask my husband to do the repair for me- I did it myself.

After disconnecting the electricity. I followed the instructions as indicated in the "HOW TO" article on the website. I used a steel putty knife and pried the light switch out of its retaining hole. I worked the right side the most since this is the side with the retaining clip. After I removed the switch I transferred the two electrical outlets to the new switch and easily snapped it into place. Engaged the electric power and tested the switch.

Just followed directions.Which were clear as could be. I think it took longer to clear the freezer, than to replace the ice maker. Thanks so much.

Had to remove bottom drawers and glass shelf, unscrew 3 screws, the right side end cap controls the air control so there is another piece that is attached to the end cap that has to be removed from the old and put on the new cap. And do replace this part since it controls the temperature of the refriferator if not the alarm goes off.
