On the door ice maker stopped working

  • Customer: Martha from San Antonio TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Removed the front panel and all associated parts from the water and ice on the door.

My husband had taken everything apart and was ready to order a whole new panel. After reading some of the stories on the website of people having the same problem (no ice would come out, water would come out & not stop or splatter everywhere) we decided to start with the part everyone seemed to have ordered. After ordering the part, it arrived faster than I expected, and solved the problem. It helped reading the other stories so we knew what kind of tools were needed and other helpful hints. I have already recommented partselect.com to my sister in law to help with a dishwasher repair.

Easy to follow directions. Got to the part where the old solenoid would be removed and found that one of the two wires the connected to the old solennoid had become disconnected. Reconnected and everything works. Will keep the kit now as backup and instructions in case I need to repair again. Very satisified.

Door to Ice Dispenser was broken

  • Customer: Linda from Brunswick GA
  • Difficulty: Easy

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.

The Ice maker only made crushed ice, because the door was not sealing.

First I removed the 5 torx head screws that held on the outside panel. Then I unplugged the 2 electrical connectors to the circuit boards, one goes to the touch pad the other is the power. Then I removed the assembly. I only needed the part that holds on the round door but I replaced all the parts that came in the kit.
With the directions that they sent me with the parts, and since I was the one that took it apart. I was able to fix it in about 20minutes and it worked great.

Couldn't believe how easy this was. The pictures you provided were perfect everything went exactly as the instructions said. I had to of saved at least $150.00. I would grade my mechanical skills at about a C+ at best and this was an easy fix.
If I need appliance parts, I now know where to go.

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!!

Ice dispenser door would not open

  • Customer: Randall from Cleveland TN

I had previously ordered the solenoid and door kit. The instructions were very well done. The pictures were a bit blurred but have been recopied several times however were adequate to see approximates on where things were. I removed solenoid and replaced it and the door flapper for ice dispenser. No problems with any of that. I had to work with the spring a little, I should have paid more attention to how many times to wrap it for the correct tension. However the solenoid was not the problem. There was intermittent operation from the solenoid when I would jiggle the pc board. Probably has a bad solder joint on the board. I ordered a new board, it took only 10 minutes to replace it since I was familiar with taking the housing loose. Put it all back together and it's working great. There was no drawing or instructions with the pc board but there were in the solenoid kit I had gotten first.
I do highly recommend Parts Select. Parts were shipped promptly. Matter of fact when I ordered the pc board early on Monday. I received it Tuesday afternoon with just ground delivery.

Very Happy Customer. Thanks Parts Select.

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...
