Bottom shelf (beverage shelf, large bottles, etc.) was unuseable because the plastic end caps were cracked. The metal shelf bar was intact though.

We have a wonderful Kelvinator refrigerator. It has served us tirelessly for more than 15 years - and looks as good as new! (We frequently clean it out and clean the interior and exterior, to keep it looking and smelling clean)

Replacement of the end caps and shelf was very easy!

The broken end caps were removed (missing for years), and it became one of those small projects that one never gets around to. I finally took down the model number and looked online for it. Google or Yahoo (can't remember which) pointed us to you site. I was SHOCKED to see that the parts were still available! I called your friendly customer order line and had a very pleasant experience placing the order. The BIGGEST shock came when the parts arrived THE NEXT DAY!! Just in time for Thanksgiving! You are AWESOME!

The Repair:

Easy as pie. The end caps simply snap into place. I did the left side first, then carefully inserted the metal bar, which is supported by the two end caps. Next I snapped in the right side cap - DONE. It took longer to clean the bar up, than it did to replace the caps!

The Results:

The bottom door shelf is now useable again. We can place 2 liter beverages and juice containers on the door, where they belong! My wife cheered and commented, "The refrigerator is no longer an eye sore when I open it!" :-)

Thank you Parts Select!!!!

I simply removed 4 screws holding the casing and then 2 more holding the timer. It was very easy. I then replaced the timer by unplugging and plugged the new one in. I replaced all the screws and the job was done. Less than 30 minutes. I was very impressed with the shipping time. When I ordered the part, I had it the next day.

The parts were sent out fast, but the wrong retainer bar.
My apartment bldg is in another state, by the time I got up to my apartment bldg to do the repair several weeks had passed and i lost the bill to get a refund and now I have a $40.00 strip of metal sitting in my garage
So the fix time would have been 15 minutes had I received the correct part.

Having tried PartSelect.com before, I was very comfortable with the process. Input my symptoms and the feed back I received was that one of the 2 things (Defrost Timer or Defrost Thermostat)might need replacement. Since the cost was not much and over night shipping would cost more than the product, I decided to order both the parts. Changing parts was a breeze. The instructions posted by others on your web site were very easy to follow. You guys save me a bundle every time I have any thing going worng with any of my appliances.

First, I should tell you I break more things than I fix by trying to install wrong or tightening until broken. It may seem real easy to to put end caps on but there was a suprised look on my wife's face when she watched me put them on the first time. She made me some chocolate chip cookies to celebrate. I ordered the parts and received them the next day. I shopped local and and was quoted up to five times the price nobody had them in stock.

We just put the new end parts into the door and then placed the bar inside the caps. We had contacted our appliance dealer at least three times to get parts for us but to no avail. A friend told me about your website and the rest was history ----- and easy. Thank you.
