I was ready to spend the $$$ on a repair person when my wife (smart woman) suggested I go on line to see if we can fix it ourselves. I (luckly) found your company and your website made it easy to find the right part plus as an extra bonus you had a video that showed how to switch out both control boards. To top it off, the package came so fast ( the next day - even with standard shipping ) I did not think it was the parts. 10 or so minutes with a Phillips screwdriver and we were back in business. THANK YOU ! ! ! !

I watched the video showing how to disassemble unit and it showed that there was a heat element inside the chute door under the foam seal that needed to be removed and placed in side the new chute door. I spent about 10-15 minutes trying to salvage the element but the adhesive used would not release and the part was rendered unusable. I called the help line and was told that their instructions on that kit said the heating element was no longer required. I finished putting the kit in and the unit works fine

Ice door would not close

  • Customer: Richard from Springfield, MO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Ice door would not close thus letting warm air into the freezer compartment. Thinking the spring was broken, I ordered the Ice Door Kit. When it arrived, I dismantled the dispenser and installed the new parts. After installing all the new parts, I found that my problem was the "Y" end of the bracket that holds the spring pin. It was cracked and would not hold the pin. The bracket seemed to be molded into the panel on the outside of the dispenser. To replace the bracket, I would have had to replace the entire outside panel. I decided to repair the bracket and glue the broken piece. I used cyanoacrylate(CA)super glue that I use in model making. Even though that seemed adequate, I decided to drill a small hole through the bracket, perpendicular to the crack, and install a small screw to strengthen the crack. I also applied a little CA to the screw for good measure. It held fast and so far so good!

Refrigerator stopped working

The refrigerator stopped working and temperatures were rising. After inspection, noticed that the compressor is not running and condenser fan not running. I ordered the inverter box and replaced the old one. Compressor started to run but condenser fan still not running. Compressor was getting hot while freezer temperature reduced to some degree. Cleaned condenser with compressed air, connected condenser fan directly to 110VAC. Refrigerator runs normally. Burning of the inverter box may be preventable. We did notice that the freezer portion of the door frame getting hot for over 3 months. This is an indication that the condenser does not provide sufficient heat dissipation. This in turn made the compressor hot and melted away some components in the inverter box which is located next to the compressor. A thorough cleaning of the condenser made the freezer door frame stay slightly warm but not hot. This condition keeps the compressor running at normal temperature. I still need the main controller which is discontinued to automatically control the condenser fan. So far the fan runs all the time and uses a bit more electricity than necessary.

We were reluctant to replace the icemaker on a 10-year old refrigerator that required a leak to be patched 2 years ago, but since the patch seems to be holding, we went ahead with the icemaker. Was about the same price as buying a portable icemaker and who wants that sitting on the counter?

Removed the broken icemaker. Removed the tray that is attached to the old icemaker and screwed it into the new icemaker. Then, I installed the new icemaker first by plugging in the control wires, then sliding the icemaker into the freezer, then screwing it into freezer. BY next morning, the icemaker made ice!

Your web site was great. There was a short step by step video on how to remove and replace the ice door kit and tools required. The only additional tool I used was Blue Tape so I could stabilize the inner control panel out of way onto Door.If I need more appliance parts I now know where I am ordering from!!

Install new water supply tube

Neither the OEM instructions nor any of the PartSelect videos explained BOTH ends of the tube for my particular appliance. All very thoroughly covered the obvious connection with the water valve from the wall. However, the push valve end for my KitchenAid is supposed to insert into the water filter chassis, which can barely be seen from the back of the appliance, much less reached with any tool. In order to make the repair, one must either remove the water filter chassis (which I attempted unsuccessfully), or put the appliance up on jacks in order to reach the push valve site.

icemaker does not make ice...mech cycles normally

I decided not to open the package containing the Control and motor asm because the old one looked like it was cycling properly. I chose to try the inlet valve first, so I ordered the inlet valve and returned this part unopened after replacing the valve asm. It took a week to receive this part and just two days to get the valve.
