Took out the old, replaced with the new. Needed second person to hold the flash light. That is the secret to get it plugged in and secured.

Water on floor, ice on bottom of freezer, won't dispense water

  • Customer: Jerry from Mission Viejo CA
  • Difficulty: Easy

Problems were due to the solenoids for the inlet valves not turning on and off as quickly as they should. Unplugged the refrigerator and pulled it out from the wall to get access to the back. Removed the back cover and the screw that holds the dual water inlet assembly, just as shown in the video. One difference is that the connectors for one of the new solenoids are narrower than the originals. It is necessary to use the two little adapter blades provided along with the new assembly to make them fit tightly in the existing wiring harness connector. We also noticed that the ice dispenser flapper was not closing all the way. Removed the trim plate around the water/ice dispenser by slipping a knife blade under the bottom edge and prying it loose. It was not as easy as in the video. Next, removed the nameplate and 4 screws that are under it. Disconnected the wiring plug at the top left and let the disconnected front assembly hang down to get access to the ice dispenser door solenoid. Disconnected the wiring harness from the solenoid and removed the solenoid attaching screws. Removed the flapper and it's crank arm and then the spring. Put everything back together in reverse order. The only thing a little bit tricky is that the trim plate must be hung from the top cleat first before pressing the sides and bottom edges to snap them back in place. Very nice to have water, ice, and a dry floor again.

Turn off refrigerator.
Empty freezer remove shelves and back plate.
With hair dryer melt ice, I made a tray out of old plastic to drain water to outside into pan outside of freezer, so I would not over fill the drain pan.
Removed to old parts and replaced. Check the wire length to see what one goes on top. I forgot to do this and had to remove and switch them.
Clip on the thermostat and plug in wire. Close back, insert racks and and back in business.
Not a hard repair!

I read the step by step instructions that came with the part. I turned two screws and disconnected the electrical harness and Removed the icemaker. Two other parts from the old icemaker were easily removed without any tools and put on the new icemaker. The new icemaker was put in the same way the old one came out. I reconnected the electrical harness and tightened the old screws. The hardest part of the whole job was reading the directions. They were easy to follow if you take the time to Just read them!

I just followed the directions carefully, loosened the screws with a nutdriver removed the unit from the screws, unplugged the unit from the freezer plug, took out the new unit, used the adapter supplied with the unit to match up with the plug in the freezer, carefully attached the icemaking unit to the screws, carefully slid the cord behind the unit, lightly clinched down the screws, checked it with a level and then did the final snug down. turned the unit on and it worked fine. Pretty easy, just take your time, don't rush and it will come out fine.

I watched the video on the PartSelect.com website and decided to give it a try. The replacement of the flapper was even easier than I anticipated! The old flapper was extremely warped and was allowing air into the freezer. I'm not sure how/why it was in that condition but I am happy to report that I have no more ice buildup. Thank you, PartSelect!

I ordered the part, within two days we had received it. My husband put the part in and I really don't know what he used doing so. All I know is that the light works now and we don't have to use the flashlight. Thanks a lot.
