Ps328747 icemaker and water dispenser dual inlet valve was purchased from parts select. My wife, sandy, watched install video provided by parts select on their website. Sandy used plywood to protect our hard wood floor. She pulled out the refrigerator (she did need my help to do this task). Unplugged the refrigerator. I turned off water line in the basement. Sandy followed the video to the tee. Fifteen minutes later the part was installed. The ice maker tray was quickly filled with water. Ice cubes quickly were made. My wife is uniquely talented. Last winter, she remodeled two bathrooms in our naples home replacing all the fixtures, vanities, flooring, etc. My wife can do almost any task. Many years ago, I had a leaking radiator and a broken arm at the same time. What did she do--she removed the radiator from the car, took it the repair, and reinstalled the repaired radiator. Sandy plays tennis, golf, brige, hikes, sings in the church choir, works at theater as a red coat, and at 62 years of age, she tackled another item on her bucket list in january 2012. Sandy's first recital is saturday--she is quiet an accomplished pianist already. I could relate many other stories about her but the most important one is that this beautiful woman has been wife for 43 years and the mother of our two beautiful daughters, jessica and holly.

The ice maker stopped making ice. Cold water was still available at the freezer door dispenser which seemed to isolate the problem to the ice maker control board/motor. My ice making unit was not identical to the one in the video, but close. After disconnecting the power, I was able to replace the control board/motor without having to remove the entire ice making unit. Total time for repair was under 15 minutes.

It looked so complicated, the mechanism that is, but all we had to do was remove the drawers above and unscrew the end cap replacing it with the new on we received from PartSelect. Piece of cake. The part was cheaper by $15.00 than we could have purchased it through our local dealer and we didn't have to pay for a service call.

Logged in to internet, for whatever reason I selected your site. Good choice! Entered the model number and selected the symtems identical to my refrig. Ordered the recommended parts, (Relay and Start Capacitor), to solve the problem. Reviewed the remove and install video. Received parts as promised by del date. Installed parts under 15 minutes, Frig kicked in and frig has been working beautiful. Avoided all those added expenses of; home service check, amount of days in- shop repair, plus parts and overhead charges. Will recommend site to my friends.

initial research suggested that relay is common failure point -opened back panel and found that relay was "truly smoked" - black soot came out when I removed it and shook it also checked that the compressor itself wasnt damaged using the resistance check across pins and also from pin to outer cover - determined that the compressor seemed OK and fault likely isolated to relay - - overload cap seemed to be ok - but decided to replace entire unit (relay and cap) - ordered on partselect.com - video showing how easy repair was very helpful - replaced it - and DONE!

Removed both vegetable and fruit drawers, removed glass that sits on top of the pantry drawer, drawer lid and drawer. Unscrewed the left and right side pantry end caps. Careful with the right side end cap, it is connected to a air regulator on the back wall of the refrigerator. Took it off slowly to pay attention to how it came off and not to break anything. Unscrewed the slide rail's off the broken end caps and screwed them on to the new pieces. The left end cap screwed in with three screws and your done! The right end cap needed the air regulator clipped on and then gently snapped the slider in place, screwed the end cap on. I did notice there is a small tab that the end cap mounts evenly on close to the front of the refrigerator wall. Backed out the two screws lined up the end cap with the tab, screwed in the three screws. Put the pantry drawer, glass, lid, vege & fruit drawers back and it was done.
