1. I removed the plastic back cover panel in the freezer. 2. Took flash photos with my phone of the motor and wire configuration. 3. Removed noisy Evaporator fan bracket from freezer. 4. Removed Fan Blade from old Motor. 5. Removed old Motor from Bracket. 6. Installed New Motor into the bracket. 7. Installed the fan blade onto motor spindle. 8. Installed the bracket onto the back wall of freezer. 9. Noticed that the tab for the ground wire was inaccessible. 10. Cursed like Linda Blair in the Exorcist for about 5 minutes. 11. Repeated steps 3 - 5... 12. Unscrewed the ground tab and placed it on the opposite side and screwed it back in. 13. Repeated steps 6 & 7.... 14. Tried to install the bracket and motor back onto the freezer but the bracket screw holes weren't lining up. When I removed the motor to flip the ground tab over, I reinstalled the motor onto the bracket upside down. 15. Tear some hair out of my head. 16. Repeated steps 4 & 5 and flipped bracket over. 17. Repeated steps 6 - 8... 18. Placed wires onto tabs. 19. Ground wire would not stay securely onto the tab. 20. Slightly opened up metal fastener of ground wire with needle nose pliers and stuck it onto the tab. 21. Still not on there super tight. I gave up wrestling with it and just prayed it will stay on there anyway. 23. Turned on freezer to check if it works. 24. Reinstalled plastic back plate. 25. Put melted food back into freezer.

I tried to just replace the cover rather than the whole unit but it was impossible - the cover would not go/stay on. I tried to remove the old unit completely but it would not unplug it was practically fused to the back of the fridge and the liner was cracking. I ended up breaking the cover and jerry rigging it over the bulb to prevent items in the fridge from being able to touch. Bad solution.

Wrong valve bracket

  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I completed the ice maker installation but the bracket the automatic water valve was attached to in no way would fit my Whirlpool fridge. The one showed in instructions sent with the ice maker was different than the one Partselect sent me. I had to grind both sides of the bracket off and just hot glued it to the spot where it was supposed to go. I can see how this could be a real issue for some.

First of all the part was not located in the section of the refrigerator that was shown in the video. I wasted a lot of time taking that section apart only to find that the part wasn't there. After some investigation I finally located the defective part. It was behind a piece of sheet metal that had to be bent out of the way to unscrew the part. If I hadn't bent it out of the way, it would have been a major disassembly to remove the sheet metal. Once removed, the installation of the new part was fairly simple. The only confusing thing about the installation was determinig which of the prongs on the part that the internal wire to the new part was to be attached. There were 3 options given and the instructions were not very clear as to which one I should use. Apparently I guessed correctly because the refrigerator seems to be functioning perfectly since the repair.
