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.

Removed the two screws to remove the plate underneath the dispenser. Unplugged the old drive motor. Removed the four screws to remove the old drive motor. Screwed in the new drive motor and plugged it in. Screwed the plate back on and it was done. Took no time at all.

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.

The ice guide was tricky to snap into place but I mamaged without breaking it. The auger motor was easy to replace, hard part was getting back up for the 63 year old repair man.

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.

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.

Google refrigerator Model #, found your site, saw parts diagram right away, clicked on part 'Ice Door Kit', noticed your video on how to do repair yourself, showed it to my husband, ordered part, and it arrived the next day. That was the hardest part of the whole repair. I have been without use of the ice dispenser for about 9 months - took 20 minutes from opening box to getting ice again and saved myself a whole lot of money. I am one happy camper!!!

Used 1/4 inch nut driver with swivel to remove the part retaining screw. Held new part into place and installed the retaining screw. Challenge was not hitting the level and putting water on me and the floor during installation. Relatively easy installation as long as you have patients.

Water dispensor leaking/Retainer clip bent

I couldn't figure out if the front plate would come off so getting access to the screw to unscrew it was problematic at first. I don't have whatever tool you need to get at that angle so I used an Allen wrench with a 6.5 mm socket to unscrew the screw and replace the clip. After figuring that combination out it went really fast.

In our new house we found that one of the wire racks supporting a slide-out glass fridge shelf was broken. The cylindrical support rod at the back we unglued/unattached. I tried to fix it with super glue (came apart), and then metal epoxy (worked at first, but shelf collapsed under load). A new wire frame fixed it with zero tools. Problem solved! Note: I had problems matching the exact fridge model at first. I contacted Kitchenaid support and they sent a pdf with every part labeled. It was then easy to find the part on PartSelect. I appreciate the high quality images that let me confirm the match visually.

Door would not close properly and was out of vertical alignment

Removed door, removed both upper and lower cam and replaced, applied small amount of vasoline and replaced the door. The entire repair took less than 5 minutes. Door works great. When replacing the cam you need to replace both the upper and lower cam. When you order the parts, the upper cam is on the door schematic and the lower cam is on the refrigerator body schematic. I originally only ordered the upper cam.
