I recommend taking a picture of any part before it is removed. Remove all screws. Use the diagram provided by this site for the dismantle of the ice bucket parts. I replaced the plate and ice auger. I found that my rusted screws for the plate would not fit the new plate, so I bought replacement screws at Home Depot. After I got all the blades off, I realized that I should have probably replaced a couple of them as well. Next time I decide to repair an item, I will totally inspect all parts before ordering. Order was shipped immediately. Postal Carrier showed me why he dropped off at another location which caused a delay of a couple of days. Not the senders problem. I had a hard time remembering just how the rod on the side was suppose to fit. I should have taken a picture. (laughing) I finally figured it out. My ice maker is as good as new. So happy I did this. My husband always says: " Just get a new refrigerator." I was raised to fix things until they just die. He was so impressed that I was able to follow the diagram and re-install the ice bucket. All is great. I will use this site again. They are a great company. I am sure I saved hundreds of dollars for a repairman who would have replaced the whole unit and not taken the time for the repair and replacement of parts. This was just "as easy as pie".

Compressor overheating - Fridge not Cooling

Condensor Fan not turning. I thought it would be an easy fix. I thought I could pull off the shroud and fan assy - no joy. Too many copper pipes and lots of tubing in the way. It took 90 minutes to remove and 30 minutes to install. The BIG hint here is to loosen the shoud, pull it back as far as you can and then remove the nut that holds the fan blade in place. THEN you can remove the motor. Get the new motor back into the shroud, get the blade back on and then tighten the shroud back up.

Moved all items from door storage into refrigerator shelves. Removed top hinge cover held by single screw and top hinge plate held by two bolts. Lifted up door to clear bottom hinge pin and removed door. Covered open front of refrigerator with plastic wrap to keep cold in refrigerator with door removed. Laid door on kitchen counter top and removed bottom hinge assembly held on by two bolts. Replaced upper cam located on bottom of door and screwed the hinge assembly back on to bottom of door (helps to keep the three plates in same sequence and note the position of cam). Drilled out the rivet that holds the lower cam to the bottom hinge pin. Removed old lower cam and and replaced with new cam and secured to lower hinge assembly with pan head screw and nut (instead of rivet). Replaced door back onto lower hinge pin and secured upper hinge pin with original bolts. Placed cover on upper hinge assembly and secured with original screw. Removed plastic wrap from front of refrigerator and moved the items that originally were stored in the door back to provide weight needed for door to close properly. All done and the door works like new, and all in less than 45 minutes. Would have been a more difficult job without the pioneering of people on this site. Thanks to all!

First turned off power and removed top shelf.
Then I used a flathead to slowly pry the switch out by the two sides. You just anlge ita bit and it slideds out easily. Then I disconnected the wires from the old switch, connected the new one and installed the new switch by snapping it back into the cutout.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 8 of 9 people found this instruction helpful
REMOVED TOP HINGE AND ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR (FREEZER DOOR HAS ICE AND WATER DISPENSERS) THEN HAD TO TURN OFF WATER SUPPLY TO UNIT AND DISCONNECT THE HOSE TO THE DOOR AND REMOVE THE SPRING PROTECTOR FROM THE HOSE -- THIS REQUIRED REMOVAL OF THE COMPRESSION FITTINGS IN THE WATER LINE SO SPRING WOULD COME OFF OF THE TUBE.
THEN REMOVED BOTTOM HINGE FROM THE DOOR AND USED SAW TO REMOVE THE RIVET THAT HAD HELD THE CAM TO THE HINGE, USED A NUT AND BOLT TO ATTACH NEW CAM. PUT OTHER CAM (USED TWO) IN THE HINGE AND REPLACED LOWER HINGE UNIT ON THE DOOR. THEN REATTACHED BOTH HINGES TO THE REFRIGERATOR AND LINED UP THE DOOR PUT THE SPRING PROTECTOR AND COMPRESSION FITTINGS BACK ON PLASTIC TUBING AND RECONNECTED THE WATER SUPPLY AND ELECTRIC FITTING, TURNED ON WATER TO UNIT AND PRAYED THERE WERE NO LEAKS. PRAYER WAS ANSWERED, THE WATER DISPENSER WORKED PROPERLY AND THE ICE MAKER FILLED WITH WATER SO I THEN REPLACED THE HINGE COVER ON TOP OF THE UNIT AND THE GRILL AT THE BOTTOM AND HAD A PEPSI. A FEW YEARS AGO I HAD REPLACED THE CAMS ON THE OTHER DOOR WHICH HAD NO WATER/ELECTIC CONNECTIONS AND WAS A MUCH SIMPLER JOB.

Refrigerator door wouldn't close right

GET 2 "door closing cams"
Yep. same as some others here. found some black plastic pieces on the floor, when door wasn't closing right. I took the door off by taking off the top bracket. very easy. bottom bracket has the broken cam riveted to it. need hacksaw to get this off then punch it through with hammer and a screwdriver. this is the only part that took a little while. replace the closing cam and find a small nut & bolt or screw to replace the rivet you just sawed in half.
Replace the closing cam that is on the bottom the the door as well. even if yours isn't broken. replace it anyway. put door back on and done. not a diffucult project if you know about the rivet and needing 2 closing cams beforehand. good luck

Door would not close fully on its own

  • Customer: Stephen from Lutherville MD
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

I inspected the hinges and found broken cams and door stop on the bottom hinge. I found the parts list for the door and ordered the parts I thought I needed. I found that I did not look at the parts list for the body of the unit and missed a key item and that required me to order another part that made the repair. I should have dug a little deeper before I placed my order and it would have been even easier. I was amazed at the speed I received the parts I needed. I ordered the hinge pin mid-morning and the part was on my porch the next afternoon.
