The plastic control bracket would not "lock" in place because the plastic detentes broke, not allowing the ice maker dispensing 'paddle' to engage the micro switches that allows the ice maker to eject ice. An easy repair of replacing the entire plastic control bracket.

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.

Remove drip pan from indoor ice dispensing system remove to bottom screws holding dispenser faceplate .lift faceplate out of the way exposing the bracket and ice and water dispenser micro switches be careful in removing microswitch, the one I removed came apart and had a little difficulty putting it back together ,used super glue and fix that problem.

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.

Water would not flow into icemaker and icemaker would not work.

I followed the instructions given by your demonstration. I took the back screw off, dropped the wire plastic cover. I then used the screwdriver to push the two (2)slots in and pulled the icemaker out and then unplugged it. I believe unplugging it was a little hard because the plug was pretty well sealed together and frozen. After finally getting the plug apart I then pulled the icemaker fully out. After pulling the cover off and putting it on the new one per your demonstration, I then inserted it back in. I stuck my hand behind the icemaker and bent the hose with my index finger and thumb so that it would drop into the water tray and then slid the icemaker back in until it snapped back in the slots. I then put the plug cover back on and reinserted the screw. I forgot to mention taking the front cover off before removing the icemake and reinserting it after replacing the icemaker. I would highly suggest customers follow your demonstration, it paid off well. I watched it about 8 times before I received the icemaker in the mail. Oh by the way water started flowing into the icemaker with 4 minutes and ice started coming out in about 30 minutes. As the icemaker got colder it started producing the ice faster. It's a sweet sound hearing the ice drop into the container.

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.
