I followed along with the Video from the web site. I used the masking tape to keep the electric parts out of the way. one of the attaching points for the new ice door broke off so i used J B Weld to reattach it. then the repair was finished with out a hitch. The time was extended by the need to wait for the epoxy to cure

Job went as per your terrific video. Except that when attempting to retrieve the old heater element the glue on the old door was no long pliable. I had to literally tear the old foam apart to get at the heater element and almost damaged it. Not to worry. It worked out well and all is great. Thanks for the very instructive video.

My handyman did the repair. It was pretty easy for him. It would have been a real puzzle if we had not watched the video instructions. The new parts were slightly different than the old parts, but they fit perfectly. I thawed the frost buildup around the ice door and the opening of the ice bin with a hair drier, to get the ice to come out properly. Thank you so much for the video!

Ice dispenser door dislodged/broken-causing ice/frost in freezer

Watch the Video! My reefer's ice door/spring 'pin' removal and installation is different than what is shown in the video. That is, my spring 'pin' looks more like a long nail (with a head on the right end). After inserting the left end of the pin into the hole, the head end drops down into a notch, which makes removal and installation easier than what is shown in the video. It is much easier to reinstall everything if the 'ice-chute' is installed first. Then, maneuver the ice door assembly into place and install the pin. I used Blue masking tape to hold the control panel up and out of the way. This is the second ice-door repair since I've had this refrigerator. It seems to occur with 'heavy' use of "crushed" ice. Some crushed ice backs up behind the ice door/flap, jams/holds the flap open, letting warm air into the freezer, causing the crushed ice to freeze into a big 'clump' of ice (too big to come out of the chute, and causes frost in the freezer. If you get a clog like this, I suggest removing the ice "bin" and gently clearing the clog from the top side of the ice chute with tongs or needle nose pliers. If you try to remove the clog from the bottom of the ice chute, the door becomes dislodged or breaks...

Ice dispenser on door was disfunctional

The hardest part was figuring out how to get the front panel escutcheon panel off. With the putty knife under the bottom flange, you need to push down with some effort on the part of the flange where the drip pan slides in and twist the putty knife to disengage the locking tab. Once the panel is off, the rest of the job is easy with the aid of your video. Everything works like new...thanks.

side by side refridgerator and the frost free section stopped staying cold

I have a KitchenAid side by side refridgerator and the frost free section stopped staying cold. The wife called what she thought was a reputable repairman. He came out and vacumed under the fridge with my vacume and charged us $85.00. I felt a little ripped off. I reserched the problem on line and the most common problem for this issue was replacing the thermister and the diffuser. Ordered the parts from PartSelect. the evening they arrived after about 20 minutes and a screw driver I had the repair complete. The refridgerator is working like new. I'm sure I saved more than a few dolars if the same repairman had to come back out.

I removed the panel under the second self and backed out the 4 screws that held the motor in place. Disconnected the wireharness and removed the motor. Re attached the wire harness to the new motor and installed the new motor and screws. It still did not work so I did some more investigating in regards to this problem. It turns out that it may be the controller so I will have to order one.

I took the cover off below the ice container to expose the auger motor. Unplugged the electrical hook up in the motor and removed 4 screws and the auger motor dropped out. Set the new auger motor in replacing with the 4 screws. Plugged the line back in the motor replaced the cover. Done. Problem is, still no ice dispensed through the door. Push a glass against the lever to get ice and the door opens as if it is going to dispense and the door pops shut. No ice. Checked the wire harness under the cap on top of the freezer door hinge and saw no problem. Don't know what to do next but call the repair man.

Well, we ordered the parts and they arrived in two days, we needed the cover, flipper, pin-door on one side of the ice maker, and we replaced them, we needed the bracket for the ice maker cover, we installed that, then came the auger drive motor, we had previously taken the old one out and to install the new one only took about five minutes, once we installed it...everything worked pretty good, but we have now ordered the emitter and receiver, because we got the one broad wet and it isn't working good, so we have gone ahead and ordered it....it shouldn't take to long to install that either.
