Ice dispenser and water dispenser not working

  • Customer: Joseph from Naples FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Was surprisingly easy. Hardest part was taking the cover off the front to get access to the control bracket and switches. Can be done by prying two notches on underside of cover until they pop. Then slide up and off. Once off I could immediately tell the plastic clips on control bracket were broken. So replacing fixed that issue. My other issue was the ice dispenser door would not stay closed and sealed. I noticed that the plastic hook that holds metal dispenser pin in place was broken. Had trouble finding that part online so I superglued it in place and that has held it just fine. Now both my ice dispenser and water dispenser are working after buying a $10 part. This site is awesome. I am sure I would have paid $200 for this from a repairman.

Drilled holes where pins had sheared off. Replaced pins with 4-40 x 1" screws and nuts and fastened switches and spacers on bracket. Used Loctite threadlocker to prevent nuts from loosening and installed bracket. So far, both ice and water dispensers are working fine.

I discovered the coupler was broken, so I went online to search for a repair. I found the part number for the coupler and washer. I used the short online video that shows step by step how to fix it. It was very easy and now the ice maker dispenses ice again! I researched Sears and your site, and your site with shipping was less expense than Sears. I called Sears and they didn't have the part in stock anywhere close to where I live to pick up, so with their price and shipping, your site was just a couple dollars cheaper. I receive the part very quickly after ordering.

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.

The video on replacing this part was spot on. The screw was a little difficult to remove at first. It had been installed ten years earlier and also had some thread lock installed. A light swat with a hammer on the end of screw driver as I was trying to remove it got the screw started without stripping the Phillips head. Once we got by that little snag, it's a piece of cake, or piece of ice if you prefer.
