Installing new "wiper" at bottom of ice in-door ice dispenser

  • Customer: Peter J from Montgomery, TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The plastic "wiper" attached to the bottom of the ice "auger" in the ice dispenser unit broke. (It was made from a plastic that was not up to the freezing temps and heavy ice loads it had to move.) The new unit seemed to be of a different type of nylon/plastic. Problem was that the small machine screw at the bottom of the auger assembly could not be removed because of corrosion. I had to drill it out. Choices then were to purchase a new auger for about 60 bucks or reassemble the unit with a new 6-32 machine screw. There will not be enough metal left to allow it to be tapped so simply clean it out well and glue in the new screw with JB Weld. Allow to cure over night and you're back in business. Ours works fine so far. Good luck!

I surfed partselect and read that a reader had a similar problem with a rattling fan. I then removed the back panel, after I had unplugged the unit, and was able to feel the slop in the fan shaft. I then watched the video of how to replace the fan and ordered the part soon after. The part arrived 3 days later! Easy to do. I was finished in 12 minutes and the fridge runs silently. The part of the job that took the longest was vaccuming the undercarriage. There was alot of dust! Couldn't have helped the efficiency on the fridge. Keep it clean.

Removed old water filter by simply twisting the the cap that houses it at the bottom of the refrigerator and replaced with new water filter. No fuss, no muss! Very impressed. Also, I was quite pleased to have received the water filter that was designed specifically for the whirlpool model that I own. I expected to receive some generic-type model based upon the reasonable price that I paid. Kudos to partselect!

The icemaker would occasionally dump the ice in the tray. I could unfrost the tray and then it would seem to work for a couple of times and then stop again.

I removed the old icemaker and tore it apart as much as I could to see if I could see anything obvious. I also took a resistance reading on the heating coil in the bottom of the icemaker. It was good. I then hooked the old icemaker back up with the end cover off. The plastic wheel on the end of the ice maker did not move. I then ordered a new ice maker, installed it and it has worked perfectly ever since.

This is an easy fix, simply remove and replace. What I was impressed with is that a how to video was provided along with my part. I wish all manufactures would offer this, the video was easy to understand and you had a good view of the operation. Thanks, a job well done.

ice maker stopped making ice

After determining the control boards weren't working (by the light was not working) I replaced the control boards. By the way I received the parts in only a day and a half.It only took about 15 mins. The parts came with a troubleshooting guide witch was a little difficult to understand, but I got through it. The new parts were working but still not making ice. The water line had frozen. My wife and I took a meat injector as a syringe and injected hot water in the line and a air compressor I have and blew air into it also. It works again. As a tip try to blow air into the water line with your mouth to see if its clear.

I followed the easy to follow video instructions posted on the same web page I used to order the icemaker. I chose to order the complete icemaker rather than the motor assembly because based on price, ease of installation, and the chance something else could fail in the icemaker unit I preferred to order and install the complete assembly. PartSelect was a great web site to use to purchase appliance parts and get instructions. Didn't think companies did this any more. Great!

At first I went to a local part supplier and they didn't have it in stock but could order it for me for $55.00 plus $10.00 to ship it. I told them I would have to think about it. I went home and got on the computer and found your web site and was I shocked when I saw the same part listed for $6.98 and $7.00 to ship it. You guys saved me $50.00. The part arrived in two day and took 5 min. to install. I now have light in my refrigerator. Thank you.

Had to completely remove the ice maker in order to install the replacement part

Sorry for delay in writing. Part I ordered arrived two days ago and it was exactly what I needed. Knowing that there will be problems even with the smallest job I procrastinated starting. When I did start this morning I foud I had to completely remove the ice maker and disassemble it in order to install the water fill cup bracket. The challenge was reassembling the unit. Not hard for an experienced repairman but a challenge for layman. Everything is thing is back to gether now and power on cooling down the refrigerator. Won't know how successful it was until turn on water and ice is formed. If it works this saved $75 just to get a Sears repairman to come out and tell me what would be needed to fix the refrigerator and $1,000 if I had to buy a new refrigerator. Extremely satisfied with service I received. Thank you.

Removed (snap on)removed screw, and ice dispencer side (door and Pin) You have to assemble to reinstall (not easy to install while assembled) Install the pivot pin the rest of the way with the new spring mounted and when unit is almost in place, install the pivot the rest of the way, install tension hold downs that old both the water and ice dispenser shafts, reinstall cover, reconnect wiring and test, I had to remove the plunger because the water wouldn't shut off fast enough. Unit works great now.
