Well, not really the answer I was hoping for. I have to replace the door on a 3 year old refrigerator because of a plastic tube. ??? When I went to the partsdirect site, it appears to be listing 4 choices for the door/panel. Can you tell me the part number that I am going to need? Does the new door come with the handle, gasket, water dispencer, hinges or am I going to have to order them as well?

Fritz, the 4 door choices will be for the various colors. The one you need will depend on the color of your door. The door will come complete except for the hinges. The existing hinges will be used. I'm listing the part numbers for the doors below. 1. 240438625 - white 2. 240438626 - bisque 3. 240438627 - black 4. 240438631 - stainless These doors are available at the link listed below. I hope this will help you.

Scott, I ordered and received the door this week using the part number you indicated. However, the door did not come complete, it is just the door. No handle, no shelves and most of all, no rubber gasket/seal. The handle and shelves seem simple enough to switch over to the new door. I am concerned about the gasket/seal that goes around the interior of the door. Can this be moved easily or does a new one need to be ordered?

Fritz, the gasket on this model is a push / pull type. The door has a groove in it and the gasket has a lip that will fit in the groove. To remove the gasket, start in the middle of the door and pull it off. To reinstall it on the new door, start in the top corners and push the gasket back in place. I'm attaching a video for removing and installing this type of gasket. I hope it will help you.

Scott, I was able to get the door and gasket properly switched out yesterday and it works. Thank you. I do have some additional questions. I've attached a picture and it shows that the water tube is now a bit unsightly. I am assuming that this needs to be cut off. How do I go about doing this and where should I cut it? How much should remain?

A:

Fritz, first check to make sure there is enough line under the door to connect back to the fitting. If there is enough under the door, then the line will need to be cut. Some side cutters will be the simplest to use. Normally about a 1/2" should remain. If you would like to have a technician check and cut this, you can call 1-800-469-4663 to schedule a tech to come out. I hope this will help you.
