I had a problem with my ice dispenser not dispensing ice. The water worked fine but the ice side didn’t dispense ice. I watch the video on Parts Select.com and it was very helpful, but my model didn’t have screws to remove the front cover. At the bottom of the front cover was two indention where you could put a small tool and pry on it, I had to take a small pick tool and pry up on the front cover to pop it loose. You have to take something small like a pick tool because if you use something like a screwdriver or a butter knife you will get behind the plastic housing (also called a hood) that is screwed to the refrigerator. The key is to remove the face plate from the plastic hood piece (that is screwed to the refrigerator), so you have to get in between the face plate and the plastic housing. If you get behind the plastic housing you can break the housing, you must get between the two pieces and it will pop loose. This is the only problem I had with this installation. The rest of the repair was very easy and now my ice maker dispenses ice great.

Remove drip pan from indoor ice dispensing system remove to bottom screws holding dispenser faceplate .lift faceplate out of the way exposing the bracket and ice and water dispenser micro switches be careful in removing microswitch, the one I removed came apart and had a little difficulty putting it back together ,used super glue and fix that problem. No instructions came with bracket so take your time. This is a relatively simple job any one should be able to do it.

Ice dispenser and water dispenser not working

  • Customer: Joseph from Naples FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Was surprisingly easy. Hardest part was taking the cover off the front to get access to the control bracket and switches. Can be done by prying two notches on underside of cover until they pop. Then slide up and off. Once off I could immediately tell the plastic clips on control bracket were broken. So replacing fixed that issue. My other issue was the ice dispenser door would not stay closed and sealed. I noticed that the plastic hook that holds metal dispenser pin in place was broken. Had trouble finding that part online so I superglued it in place and that has held it just fine. Now both my ice dispenser and water dispenser are working after buying a $10 part. This site is awesome. I am sure I would have paid $200 for this from a repairman.

Drilled holes where pins had sheared off. Replaced pins with 4-40 x 1" screws and nuts and fastened switches and spacers on bracket. Used Loctite threadlocker to prevent nuts from loosening and installed bracket. So far, both ice and water dispensers are working fine.

If you are having this problem, read this. My refrigerator door would not stay closed. This was over a year and a half time period. I thought it was something complicated and told my wife to call a repairman. Thank goodness she does what she does best - not listening to me! I finally had enough and went online and googled my problem and found PartsSelect. PartSelect had a repair video showing how to fix the problem. If you are like me, I'm very cautious about purchasing from a website in which I'm not familiar. PartsSelect is a reputable site (I promise I do not work for them). My refrigerator is over 8 years old and they had the part I needed, a lower door cam, along with a video on how to install the part. This honestly took about 5-10 minutes to do and I did it without any help. I was so aggravated at myself for waiting so long at doing this!! I actually ordered 2 of these parts, just for the next time. You can do this.

The door would not close tight unless you gave it an extra push
