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.

Melt down of part from over heating of selonoid from moisture getting into circuit board. I had to replace those also.

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

  • Customer: James from Milan TN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
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

Ice dispenser would not work

  • Customer: Terrance from Great Falls VA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Our Refirgerator had custome wood covering to match the cabinets. Be sure to take the covering off first. There are four screws on the left edge fram that need to be removed and two on top of the tpe edge frame. The panels then slide right off. Remove the spill tray and unscew the two screws at the bottom. Slide up the key pad and there are three screws behind the key pad that have to come out. There are two "plug in connections that have to be disconnected to lift the dispenser unit out. Take care not to damage or separate the connector wire from the keypad and the circuitboard.

The new solenoid and flapper assembly is different than the original. My guess is the orginal design was part of the problem and the redesign allows the solenoid to work better. I was suprised the new assembly did not come with a tension spring... SO be careful and DO NOT loose the tension spring from the old assembly. there are two screws that hold the olde solenoid in plae wonce you remove the flapper and tension spring. Put the new solenoid in, hold the tapper out and put the flapper assembly in. Rotate the flapper rod until you can seat the solenoid tapper. Replace the tension Spring and then reassemble as in reverse order.

The repair was really simple - I followed the directions provided. I removed the screws holding the cover in place - unplugged the wiring harness - removed the solenoid and replaced with the new solenoid and door amd reassembled the parts. I wasn't sure if the solenoid was bad since the door was actually broken. I was able to test just using the new door - then replace the solenoid. It was all done in less than 30 minutes. Directions provided were GREAT.
