Ice door would not close thus letting warm air into the freezer compartment. Thinking the spring was broken, I ordered the Ice Door Kit. When it arrived, I dismantled the dispenser and installed the new parts. After installing all the new parts, I found that my problem was the "Y" end of the bracket that holds the spring pin. It was cracked and would not hold the pin. The bracket seemed to be molded into the panel on the outside of the dispenser. To replace the bracket, I would have had to replace the entire outside panel. I decided to repair the bracket and glue the broken piece. I used cyanoacrylate(CA)super glue that I use in model making. Even though that seemed adequate, I decided to drill a small hole through the bracket, perpendicular to the crack, and install a small screw to strengthen the crack. I also applied a little CA to the screw for good measure. It held fast and so far so good!

Your web site was great. There was a short step by step video on how to remove and replace the ice door kit and tools required. The only additional tool I used was Blue Tape so I could stabilize the inner control panel out of way onto Door.If I need more appliance parts I now know where I am ordering from!!

I watched the video showing how to disassemble unit and it showed that there was a heat element inside the chute door under the foam seal that needed to be removed and placed in side the new chute door. I spent about 10-15 minutes trying to salvage the element but the adhesive used would not release and the part was rendered unusable. I called the help line and was told that their instructions on that kit said the heating element was no longer required. I finished putting the kit in and the unit works fine

I followed along with the Video from the web site. I used the masking tape to keep the electric parts out of the way. one of the attaching points for the new ice door broke off so i used J B Weld to reattach it. then the repair was finished with out a hitch. The time was extended by the need to wait for the epoxy to cure

Job went as per your terrific video. Except that when attempting to retrieve the old heater element the glue on the old door was no long pliable. I had to literally tear the old foam apart to get at the heater element and almost damaged it. Not to worry. It worked out well and all is great. Thanks for the very instructive video.

The hardest part was figuring out how to get the front panel escutcheon panel off. With the putty knife under the bottom flange, you need to push down with some effort on the part of the flange where the drip pan slides in and twist the putty knife to disengage the locking tab. Once the panel is off, the rest of the job is easy with the aid of your video. Everything works like new...thanks.

Did you know you have to press the button next to the filter before you pull on the filter cap? Like most week end warriors, I just pulled the cap and of course, I broke it! The repair was simple, hopefully, in six months I will remember to press the button!

new filter cap fit perfectly, but I couldn't get filter in or out. Called appliance repair person who pushed it in -- no problem. I just didn't have enough arm force to push it in.

I had already hit the eject button and nothing happened. I could not get the filter out. I read the instructions, got on line and ordered the water filter cap. In the meantime, I worried about getting the filter out. I tried pliers and then I found after several tries and a lot of frustration, a lid off of a spray can that fit. I could have waited until the cap came in, but me being me, I could not wait. I worked the filter out, but waited until the cap came in the mail to finish the job. . I put the cap on the filter inserted it and finished what I had started the week before. Simple once I had the cap.
