I watched a couple of videos on your website about how to install a couple of parts that could possibly be causing the problem. Then I went and took the cover off of the area where the ice and water dispenser are in the door. I could tell from watching the videos which parts to look at to see where the problem might be. I figured out which part it was because I could see where it was broken. I then ordered the part. After I received the part I watched the videos again and then did the repair. VOILA! It worked. I put everything back together and the water dispenser was working. I was so pleased that I didn't have to call a repair man and I actually fixed it myself! My husband was so glad too.

Water dispenser did not work. Ice dispenser did work.

I first viewed the instructional video provided by Partselect to pin point the faulty part. It was the control bracket. I would not have known how to expose the control bracket if it weren't for the video. Also Partselect said 48% of past water dispenser problems were the control bracket; this also helped me pinpoint the faulty part. I ordered the part; it arrived in 3 days. Using the video as a guide I repaired the dispenser in about 20 minutes start to finish. I will always go to Partselect for all appliance problems.

The video explains it well, however, for those with the built-in model, the one with the wood panels, things are a bit different. Thanks to another writer, I received help. After you unscrew and remove the two side metal décor strips from the freezer, you are left with how to remove the no-screws décor ice/water panel. It does NOT slide out. You must carefully bend the panel out and away from its top and bottom tracks. I do wonder why not just make it slide out, but no such luck. Be careful not to over bend. However, once you begin bending from the middle out, it will become clear to you how its going to come out. Also, with this panel removed, and left hanging there, it is not necessary to unplug any of those electrical connects. The only electrical work is removing the light from the control bracket you are replacing, as shown in the video. I found bending the décor panel back in place was easier than pulling it out. Be sure to unplug the unit. Plug found at top of refrigerator behind very top wood panel. You will need to easily remove this very top wood panel, and you will need a step ladder to reach plug.

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.

Ice Dispenser Wont Dispense Ice (my refriderator model didn't have screws to remove the front cover)

I had a problem with my ice dispenser not dispensing ice. The water worked fine but the ice side didn’t dispense ice. I watch the video on Parts Select.com and it was very helpful, but my model didn’t have screws to remove the front cover. At the bottom of the front cover was two indention where you could put a small tool and pry on it, I had to take a small pick tool and pry up on the front cover to pop it loose. You have to take something small like a pick tool because if you use something like a screwdriver or a butter knife you will get behind the plastic housing (also called a hood) that is screwed to the refrigerator. The key is to remove the face plate from the plastic hood piece (that is screwed to the refrigerator), so you have to get in between the face plate and the plastic housing. If you get behind the plastic housing you can break the housing, you must get between the two pieces and it will pop loose. This is the only problem I had with this installation. The rest of the repair was very easy and now my ice maker dispenses ice great.
