Ice dispenser door would not open

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?

My actuator pad was not working consistently and my ice was not dispensing. I had ice forming inside the freezer door where the ice drops down, as well as from the ice maker itself.

I called and described my problem to a local refrigerator repairman and he told me what the problem sounded like. After ordering what I thought to be the correct parts, I just followed the video provided by PartSelect, which made it quite simple. I have purchased parts from this company in the past and made repairs which have saved me a considerable amount. This is a terrific company for us single women!

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.

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

into place effortlessly

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

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

First, I took everything apart and replaced only the ice door. Everything worked fine for about an hour and the door started opening and closing on its own. I took it apart again and replaced the whole kit including the solenoid. Everything was fine for less than an hour and then the door started opening and closing again. I took it apart and made sure everything was tightened carefully. Now it works perfectly.
