Ice dispenser door would not open

  • Customer: Bob from Christiansburg VA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
Repair was a breeze, just like in the provided directions. Removed the trim and wood panels, accessed the door, removed the panel, replaced the solenoid and put it all back together-piece of cake! Unfortunately, about 45 minutes after putting everything back together, water started shooting out of the dispenser and would not shut off. All of the controls became non-functional. I opened the freezer door and that made it quit shooting water. Had to remove the dispenser panel again and unplug the power to it. Have not had a chance to trouble shoot further. Did note the new solenoid seemed very warm to the touch. Did it possibly short something out?

Just had to follow the easy to read instructions that came with the kit assembly. Only problem came when reinstalling the spring the recomended half a turn of tenison. seems like it was'nt enough tenison to completey close the door air tight. Would be much easier if the pictures where clearer and larger for older eyes to see.

Removed 4 screws and disconnect the circuit board, replaced the broken door and reassembled the unit. Solenoid did not need to be replaced, only the ice door. About 15 minutes and about 90$ saved in labor.

removed the panel to get to icemaker(4 screws), then removed the plug, then removed worn solenoid and replaced with

but not with much effort. Everything went back
into place effortlessly

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The Refrigerator had panels of wood, they had to be removed above the Ice maker face plate before it could be lifted off. There were several layers of Torx screws to be taken off., had to purchase that tool. Luckily they were all T-15 and I guessed right at the hardware store. The rest of the repair went pretty as indicated on the sheet provided.

Ice dispenser door broken

  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

I removed the two screws from the front door panel, unhooked the wire, removed three more screws and removed the broken door. I replaced the door and replaced everything in reversed order. I did not need to replace the solenoid so I still have that if needed in the future, The instructions were so easy, it took less than 5 minutes and I estimate saving about $90.00 on a sevice call after deducting the cost of the part from PartSelect.
I will check out PartSelect for future repair jobs.

Thanks

The repair went just as the short video showed. The paper instructions included with the part were not too good the photos were copies of copies from years ago with all the detail gone. But with the video on your website it was a snap for anyone with some mechanical skills.

Door to Ice Dispenser was broken

First removed the grill from the fountain. Then removed the 2 screws, raised the escutcheon up and off the fountain assembly. Disconnected the power connection to the escutcheon and laid it aside. Removed the 3 screws holding the fountain assembly and disconnected the power supply from it. Removed the broken door pieces. Removed the 2 screws from the solenoid and replaced with new one and replaced the screws. The instructions said to rotate the spring counter clockwise 1/2 turn but I had to rotate it a full turn (to make the door tight when it closed) and insert the end of the spring in the opening of the fountain bracket. Insert the solenoid plunger into the recess of the door strike (the diagram in the instructions helped because this was the part that was broken and I could not figure out where it went). Then I installed everything back the way I had taken it apart.
I am a 61 year old woman and pretty good at taking things apart and putting it back together. My husband usually lets me fix things because I have more patience than him.
I would like to thank parts select for their packaging of the parts and the included diagram.
