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

  • Customer: LAWRENCE from Gig Harbor, WA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

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...

The drum just started breaking apart one day. i thought i'd have to buy the entire auger. But as a result of Parts Select, Irealized i only needed to buy the drum.

  • Customer: Li from Long Beach, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable)

Before I ordered, I followed the great video to disassemble the unit. That's when I realized I only needed to buy the drum. Five days later, I had the part. I thought I remembered how to reassemble it, but I ended up needing to watch the video again. It wasn't difficult, but you must get all the bits back in the same order!! Once that was dine, it all went together easily. Thank you! I'm so impressed with this site that I posted on Facebook about it so my friends can also save big bucks doing simple repairs themselves.

Water dispenser did not work. Ice dispenser did work.

  • Customer: Thomas from Egg Harbor, WI

I first viewed the instructional video provided by Partselect to pin point the faulty part. It was the control bracket. I would not have known how to expose the control bracket if it weren't for the video. Also Partselect said 48% of past water dispenser problems were the control bracket; this also helped me pinpoint the faulty part. I ordered the part; it arrived in 3 days. Using the video as a guide I repaired the dispenser in about 20 minutes start to finish. I will always go to Partselect for all appliance problems.
