Ice maker quit

  • Customer: John from Austin, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

I went to your site thinking the problem was lack of electronic/elec signal. Wrong! I then was guided to your "ice door repair kit". I only then realized(after viewing the repair video) that ice door SOLENOID failure was far more likely than elec circuitry failure.Since it was inexpensive I ordered the kit......gambling that it would fix it; and it did! On my first try I installed the close-door spring wrong but then reviewed the video and instantly saw my error and corrected it. I also got an elec nibble (shock) once because I hadn't disconnected as the video said to do. Good parts,good information, timely response! "Piece of Cake"! Cheers John Taylor

The ice maker door broke

  • Customer: William from Harlan, IA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

It was not that hard. I am not totally inept, but also not a mechanice or techie. I have discovered that a lot of repair jobs have a video that shows you how to do things, and seeing it done makes a task doable for me.

Clearing an ice jam resulted in a broken ice chute door

  • Customer: Bruce from Clarkridge, AR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
This is an easy repair and doesn't take hardly any time, once you can identify the electrical bridals to disconnect and the position of the new ice chute door interface point with the solenoid.

The supplied directions are complete but were quite a bit blurry. The more general dissasembly which is effectively 5 screws and two electrical bridals to remove/disconnect is straight forward. Pay particular attention to the mounting point of the ice door interface with the solenoid. I did it twice because I didn't align the door properly the first time:-)

Much too easy a job than to "call the guy."

Door flap of ice dispenser door was broken.

  • Customer: Bill from WACO, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
I watched the repair video before I even ordered the part. That helped me determine if I felt I could make the repair. The video was extraordinarily helpful. Can't say enough about it. I even took off the dispenser door to see if I thought I could do it. The part arrived quickly, in just a couple of days. I only needed the door flap but it came with the solenoid which is not uncommon on ordering parts. (I couldn't even find the part on other web sites much less a video on how to repair.) I reviewed the video again. I removed the drip tray and door facing as instructed. When removing the mechanism I did get incur a slight electrical shock. I had not unplugged the refrig. Duh.. Got the mechanism out and inserted the door flap. The solenoid strike bar had come out and I had a slight problem getting that back in but referenced the video and no problem. Put in all back in place. Had to clean out the ice bin some because water had frozen in the bottom. Put it back in, plugged in the refrig and I am back in business! Terrific! The video was the key for me. It gave me confidence with very clear instructions. Bill

The replacements parts were aftermarket parts so I could not simply replace the one piece I needed. I did replace all the original parts with the aftermarket parts and it works perfectly. I wish the design was closer to the original, but it is just as functional. The only problem I ran into was the images on the instruction sheet were difficult to see. The text however did an exceptional job of explaining each step.

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 2 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.

First I cut the power to the refrigerator. Followed the instructions for removing the door panel. Disconnected the electrical panel to the door controls. replaced the flap only and reassembled. Hate I had to by the solenoid when all I needed was the flap. Ordered the part and had it the next day, very fast shipping. I have used PartSelect for other appliance parts and had good service from them.

I accessed the model with the model number, isolated the part and ordered it online. Very simple procedure and great online interface to identify the part. On receiving the part I disconnected the water line, followed the instructions to remove the bracket and then the valve. Re-attached the new valve and replaced the bracket. Attached the water supply and tested the valve. Once it all worked fine I moved the refrigerator back into position.

After Watching the Video, this Job was very easy. I moved the Refridgerator away from the Wall, disconnected Power, shut-off water shut-off valve, unscrewed Water Line and caught water in a small pan. Loosened up 1 screw and removed valve, unplugged 2 electrical connections and bottom water line. I cut-off an inch of line and reinstalled the valve in reverse order. Plugged Refridgerator back in and instantly had water at Dispensor. Now the ice-cubes are normal size. Thank-you PartSelect.
