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!

We just bought a home with the refrigerator in it. The Water Filter Cap on the refrigerator was not there.

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.

Ice door would not close

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!

Plastic hinge attached to chute door broke

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

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!!

Ice door would not shut which lead to ice melting and freezing up Ice chute.

I Googled the problem and after reading several posting & suggestions decided that the Ice dispenser kit would probably solve the problem. I ordered both parts on the chance that it might be only the micro switch and it was only a $10 part, the ice dispenser kit was $50. The access was really easy and the switch was installed in about 20 minutes but did not solve the problem so I proceeded with the kit. The parts came out fairly easy but our actual set up was slightly different from the video and print instructions. Our model did not have the heating ribbon on the door flap and the little barrel part was permanently attached to the refrigerator so I thought I could be in trouble. Did not realize that we had cracker the lever bracket clip during removal so my husband "brainstormed" a fix. That's what we needed the large head screw and drill for. We drilled the screw into the refrigerator so it holding the spring loaded piece tightly in position. Works fine. I was told my a repairman over the phone that the dispenser was probably not fixable on our model. I saved an expensive service call AND GOT THE DISPENSER WORKING!

Ice dispenser door dislodged/broken-causing ice/frost in freezer

Watch the Video! My reefer's ice door/spring 'pin' removal and installation is different than what is shown in the video. That is, my spring 'pin' looks more like a long nail (with a head on the right end). After inserting the left end of the pin into the hole, the head end drops down into a notch, which makes removal and installation easier than what is shown in the video. It is much easier to reinstall everything if the 'ice-chute' is installed first. Then, maneuver the ice door assembly into place and install the pin. I used Blue masking tape to hold the control panel up and out of the way. This is the second ice-door repair since I've had this refrigerator. It seems to occur with 'heavy' use of "crushed" ice. Some crushed ice backs up behind the ice door/flap, jams/holds the flap open, letting warm air into the freezer, causing the crushed ice to freeze into a big 'clump' of ice (too big to come out of the chute, and causes frost in the freezer. If you get a clog like this, I suggest removing the ice "bin" and gently clearing the clog from the top side of the ice chute with tongs or needle nose pliers. If you try to remove the clog from the bottom of the ice chute, the door becomes dislodged or breaks...
