I incorrectly ordered the ice dispenser door motor when I needed the ice dispenser auger motor which I subsequently ordered. I installed both the auger motor and ice dispenser motor with new replacement parts. Sourcing my own replacement parts and doing the work myself saved at least $100 to $150.Tip: I photographed each stage of the repair, e.g., whenever I removed a component, or disturbed the wiring, I photographed the work area layout. Then followed the photos in reverse to reassemble everything and dress the wiring just as it originally was. I did not trust any part of the remove and replace operation to memory and double-checked everything against the photos I took at each stage of the repair going in.
