Video and instructions were very thorough, but on my paticular freezer, the inside door shelves had to be removed (30 screws) to get to the face place to release the door controls. Newer models can be accessed from the front. After removing front cover, repairs were very simple. Found that the solenoid was "rusted" and would not function. Easy replacement. Order new flapper, but was not needed (have a spare now...haha). When putting back together, the door did not seal at top...had to adjust how I tightened screws (pattern - top to bottom) to keep door from "warping". Did not think that the small amount of torque on the screws could "warp" a door so easily. After re-torqueing the screws, moved the top hinge just a little and door again sealed correctly. Will keep this site "bookmarked" for all my future appliance needs. Never had customer service so thorough. Amazing that I order about 5:00 pm on a Thursday and parts were at my door just after lunch on Friday...amazing service. Thanks for the instructions, video and CS.

Fridge and Freezer too warm

I noticed that the fridge was getting too warm and that the freezer side was starting to get frost build up on the back wall. I figured I would replace the heater and heater thermostat just to be safe. I had to remove the 2 back screws and panel to reveal the evaporator coils. They were a solid block of ice so i had to use a hair dryer to melt all the ice off the coils. Install was a snap after that. Make sure you have a couple of small wire nuts since you have to cut the wires to the thermostat to wire on the new one. One week later and so far, so good. If I didn't have to take the time to defrost the coils, the install would have been under 30 minutes easy.

The ice maker was frosting up and the flap was sticking open. Only one negative comment! The Parts Diagram did not show how to remove the exterior trim plate to get to the parts. Once I figured that out, it was an easy installation and the ice maker ejects the ice properly and the flap closes properly. I could do the install in 20 minutes next time. Thanks for your help.

Very simple, I followed instructions sent with the filter. Twisted old filter clockwise 1/4 turn to remove. Filled new filter with water, lined up arrow on filter to arrow on refrigerator, and then turned 1/4 turn counterclockwise. Filter raised and seated itself. Wiped few drops of water from refrigerator shelf.

Took out the old, replaced with the new. Needed second person to hold the flash light. That is the secret to get it plugged in and secured.

Excess water was seeping into the ice maker through the fill tube in back. Reading repair stories here on Parts Direct quickly led me to the water solenoid fill valve. I ordered it and received it in two days. The video here on Parts Direct showed how to change the valve and armed with that information it was an easy 20 minute job. Problem is fixed and the ice maker works flawlessly.

Disconnected power cord and turned off water supply. Then I removed rear metal cover on back bottom of refrigerator. I put a towel under 2 water lines, removed water line from wall into valve, removed screw holding water valve, removed both water lines by pushing in on connector and pulling out on the line, removed each electical connector. Then I reversed the process. I did cut about a half inch using a carpet knife from the two water lines entering the bottom of the dual inlet valve. Before putting the metal cover on I turned on refrigerator and water to check for leaks. Notes to remember are that electrical connectors are color coded and 2 bottom water lines are different diameters.

Watched the how-to video and then followed the steps. After unplugging the refrigerator I removed the main control board cover, disconnected the wiring plugs and the removed the old control board.
