The ice maker wouldn't dispense ice

  • Customer: Patricia from Stanardsville VA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
First we ordered a new solenoid...the little piece that opens and closes whenever you push the button to dispense ice. That definitely needed to be replaced, and it was easy to do. However, that didn't fix the problem, so we looked and looked at the assembly and decided that a spring was missing. We ordered the spring, and when it arrived, we found that it matched exactly one that was already on the assembly. :-) Not the problem. Thirty minutes later we figured it out,. The diagrams at Part Select were not helpful with this. It was a matter of figuring out how the magnetic weight fit into the assembly. That's all it was! Now we have an extra spring for the future.

Water/Ice actuator would stick and stay on

  • Customer: Antonio from San Diego CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
Be sure to unplug the fridge as there is live power on the circuit board you'll be handling/removing. Trust me on this.

Slide out the ice tray, remove the screws holding on the outer plastic frame (taking the thin/flat wiring off carefully), remove the next set of screws, then slide off the mechanism. The water spout is flexible and you might need to bend it a little. Good time to clean it off as well.

Changing the actuator switch and plastic pad is mostly self explanatory (look at old one, remove, and reverse steps to put new one). Takes about 30-seconds for this part.

Plastic flapper broke

  • Customer: Stanley from Houston TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set

Replaced flapper, and solenoid per the instructions. It was much easier than I had anticipated. The hardest part was reconnecting the control wire to the front panel. Not much room to get your hands in there, but it finally went together...

Ice door tab broke off

  • Customer: Jamieson from Spring TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The parts just arrived -- wow, I think I've found my favorite parts supplier!!!

Ironically, I had jury rigged a new tab on the ice door by inserting a screw into where the tab snapped off, but it didn't work! As I was taking it apart this time, I realized that the solenoid spring had become unclipped. However, it's nice to have it all back together again and working with new parts!

Thank you -- great packaging, the parts look fantastic, and a great sheet of instructions! I've already repaired my refrigerator (only took about ten minutes) and it's up and running!

Thank you!!

Ice dispenser door replacement

  • Customer: Darryl from Corbin KY
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
My part was received in only 3 days. It was exactly what I need. The directions sent with the ice door were really simple to follow. Within 30 minutes my family was back to getting ice from the refridgerator door. Nobody wants anything to tear up, but I hope if I do have troubles in the future, it's something that partselect carries parts for. These days it's hard to find a business that gives you want you want, quickly, for a fair price. If you were a movie I would give you two thumbs up. Thanks for making this a good outcome and not just another headache!!

Broken Actuator, water/ice switch getting stuck

  • Customer: Albert from Banks OR
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
First, I removed the water/ice fountain panel - remove the 4 screws and disconnect the panel buttons cable. Second, I removed the panel circuit board - remove the two screws and disconnect the two wire connectors. Third, I pulled the water/ice fountain compartment. Removed the broken rubber pad (actuator pad), and installed the new one -- no tools needed for this step. Finally, I put everything back together. TIP: If the water/ice switch gets stuck, even with the new actuator, find a spring that can fit the switch pin that comes with the actuator. I had that problem, and I simply added a small spring.)

Removed the face plate by removing the two screws under the fountain catch tray on the front of the fridge, and then sliding the cover up and off. Removed 3 screws to remove the dispenser and the limit switch was easily accessible on the back side. Also changed the actuator pad because the old one looked cosmetically bad.

Ice and water would not stop when glass was pulled away.

Unplug fridge. Pull out drip tray at the bottom of the dispenser, remove 2 screws under it. Remove 2 screws holding dispenser to fridge. Disconnect wiring harness. Replace switch and Actuator pad. Re assemble in reverse order and plug the fridge back in. Have a cold glass of water, with ice, and no overflow on the floor. Saved quite a bit of $ to boot!
