Single Gasket Retainer Clip

This genuine OEM freezer gasket retainer clip is used on refrigerator freezers, and connects the inner door panel and door gasket to the outer door panel. The gasket is the rubbery strip that seals the space around the edge of the door to keep warm air out of the freezer. When the gasket is not working properly, you may notice an excessive frost buildup or reduced cooling. If the gasket is hanging loosely from the door, the issue could be with the retainer, or the clip fastening the retainer to the gasket, and it should be replaced.

Filter - Drier

A filter-drier in a refrigerator has two essential functions. The first is to absorb system contaminants, such as water, which can create acids. The second is to provide physical filtration. This means trapping moisture, small metal chips, and dirt found in the refrigerant gas. If your refrigerator motor is constantly running, but the refrigerator is not getting cold, the issue could be due to a damaged or faulty filter-drier. Faulty filter-driers are sometimes the cause for abnormal freezer compartment temperatures and partially frosted evaporators. This filter-drier is approximately 11 inches long. Remember to disconnect the power from your refrigerator before beginning this repair.

SUPPORT-REAR SHELF

This part is found in freezers. The stud may have broken over time and may no longer be supporting the shelf. If your shelf is not staying in place or you are not able to adjust heights, it may be due to the support being broken. To complete this repair, you will need to open the fridge and remove the drawer and the shelf. To remove the old stud, you will need a 3/4-inch wrench to twist it off. The new part should push into place and will need to be turned with your wrench to be secured into place.

You shouldn't need a tool to do this, if it is hard you can gently pry the edge with a flat head screw driver just to loosen. Unplug white and red wires from relay, noting that the white wire goes in the hole with a #2 stamped beside it. Shake old relay, if it rattles like a baby r... read more
