It's not so much the ease of the repair that matters as how quickly you got the part to me. I had tried to order the part frmo a major company who's name rhymes with Beers, but they were unable to deliver it after three weeks. It was constantly on backorder. I ordered it from you on Monday, had the part on Tuesday, and had repaired it by Tuesday night.

Amazing service and turn around. You are to be congratulated.

Cracked bearing-hinge (PS429803) on bottom

Thanks to everyone is thread, for the valuable info. Over-all, the whole thing was pretty easy.

Removed one phillips screw holding top cover (top of door).
Removed top cover (about 6" long).
Removed two hex nuts (sorry, I've forgotten the size).
Removed door.
Removed broken (bottom) bearing-hinge.*
Replaced bearing hinge.
Replaced door.
Replaced hex nuts.
Replaced top cover.
Replaced phillips screw.

I wasn't sure how heavy (or rather not heavy) the door was, so I had an additional person stading by (it's not heavy). Extra person was not necessary.

The only thing that made the repair annoying was when I tried removing the cracked bearing-hinge, the top splintered and the bottom half was stuck in the door. I ended up having to dig out the cracked piece with pliers & drill & tiny computer screw-driver & swearing.

Moral of the story is don't crack the top off of the bearing-hing that you're trying remove.

Door made "klunking" noise and would no longer swing closed on its own.

With a screwdriver, remove the hinge cover-plate on the top of the door. This reveals the two nut-driven screws that hold th top hinge-plate: remove while children/wife/neighbor/butler/out-of-work-political consultant hold the door. Take out the screw on the Bearing plate and replace with new. (I replaced, but kept the old one. Like to replace parts that ride on each other in pairs, even if there is no noticable wear. Next, take the old Bearing-hinge from the bottom of the door that whomever is holding. Needle-Nose Pliers might be handy if your bearing-hinge is also shredded. Re-assemble being careful to place the bottom hinge into the Bearing without catching or scoring the Bearing hinge. Don't want to do this again in six monthes.
While I was under there with the base/bottom plate removed, I noticed the dust and crud and vaccumed after replacing the door.

wife broke water dispenser actuator

I had seen technician remove cover for warranty repair. If I had not I would have been in trouble... I removed tray exposing screws, removed screws and lifted off cover. I then pulled off connector to circuit board. I removed the three screws holding the broken dispenser part and removed it. The reverse was easy. The hinge cover was easy since I had learned to slide it forward FIRST (that's when I broke it). The shelf supports were tricky. The old ones would not come out. I sawed them off with a serrated knife and then picked the pieces out. Installing the new ones wasn't going well until I realized that I had to hammer the pegs in. Then they went right in.

first I removed the old filter housing. With the new part from Parts Select, I simply tightened a few screws then attached our new part, within minutes we were ready to turn the water on. So simple and very pleased with our fast shipment and exact part that we needed. We now have Ice and water, and saved a lot of money by doing it ourselves.

Removed cover from top bracket with phillips sd. removed bracket with socket wrench; lifted door from hinge; removed remnants of old hinge from recess, this took a while because it had broken inside, eventually I used needle nose pliers to break it up and pull it out in three parts; installed new bearing hinge; reset door, and installed bracket and cover.

Easy!
