The Ice flapper was warped therefore, it was not closing well. Because of this, the ice dispenser got air in it and the ice cubes would deice causing to make a chunk of ice inside.I went on line, order the part ($5.75 + tax= $12.00) checked Part Select video and did it myself. It really is as seen on the video. It took me less than 10 minutes! I saved $200.00

flapper was locking open periodically.

Replaced flapper, which was in surprisingly good condition. Major part of repair was removing a lot of mold incurred from long term seepage of room air into the ice channel. In the process of the repair, I discovered that the solenoid to the right of the flapper was hanging up badly. I removed it and cleaned both the plunger and the interior cone of the solenoid with alcohol. This removed quite a bit of rust and some mold. Reinstalled solenoid, replaced flapper and it works just fine. May need to replace solenoid if problem recurs. Certainly worth $37.00!

Rubber on ice flapper had curled up

  • Customer: James from Hot Springs Village, AR
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Remove front outside cover with the pictures on it. It is held in place with 5 push type pins. Remove the ice holder or turn off the power to keep the auger from running. Remove the four screws that hold the solenoid assembly and unplug the power plug. Remove the screw and small plate that holds the flapper assembly in place. Install the new flapper and spring and re-install the other parts. My flapper was loose in the holder causing the top of the flapper to hang on the hole in the ice outlet. I installed a small screw through the back of the holder to secure the flapper.

Freezer door would not close properly

  • Customer: Lynne from Toledo, OH
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Using the #2 Phillips screwdriver I removed the top hinge cover from the top of the freezer door. Next I used the 5/16 nut driver to remove the 2 bolts holding the top hinge in place. Once it was removed I was able to lift the door off the bottom hinge. Placing the door on a flat work surface I loosened the bottom bolt holding the cam in place. I next removed the bolt holding the hinge in place. I was then able to remove the broken cam and replace it with the new one. I then replaced the bottom bolt making sure the hole for the cam and the hole for the hinge are lined up. I then tightened the bottom hinge bolts. I carefully placed the door back on the bottom hinge and put the top hinge back on.

Broken plastic closure cam

  • Customer: Fred from Scotts Mills, OR
  • Difficulty: Easy

I blocked the bottom of the door(CAREFULLY!!) in position to elevate the door & take strain off the lower hinge & pivot post, while maintaining proper door alignment. I removed the two screws holding the hinge & post assembly from the frame, saving the screws & spacer for reuse. I removed the two screws holding the upper cam bracket on the door, again keeping the attaching parts. I installed and carefully aligned the new cam, original spacer & retaining plate to the lower edge of the door. I installed the new hinge & post assembly using the existing spacer & screws. I aligned the door & seal while checking the gap from top to bottom and from side to side. I carefully tighten the screws and rechecked the gap between the door & frame as well as the alignemnt of the door seal. Once satisfied with the alignment, I finished tightening the screws. I emphasize care and extreme caution in reinstalling the screws, they are a self-tapping (self-threading) type of fastener and this requires caution to make sure they are started and installed in the original threads of the door & frame. I put them all in using only finger pressure until I was positive they were started straight, going into the original threads, NOT trying to cross-thread or cut new threads, the structure is too thin for that and stripped threads will result! The door alignment and gap spacing is critical, make sure to check these adjustments carefully to ensure proper operation. Total time of repair, less than 15 minutes. I hope I have not over-simplified this because I have over 55 years of Automotive shop experienced and an ASE Certified Master Auto & Truck Technician...:-)

Ice maker was side mount instead of rear mount as shown in previous insructions. Removed one screw and slide ice maker forward. used flat head screw driver to undo the ice maker plug. The ice maker came right out. Removed old ice maker fill cup and put it on the new ice maker. Slide the new ice maker into place and used the same screw to secure it. Pluged it in and turned on the ice maker. Had new ice in a couple of hours. It comes with a round plug to square plug adapter, new fill cup and fill tube, all of which I didn't use.
