Just remove old one which was really easy since it was practically falling off and replace with new one. It is a bit tricky because you are afraid of breaking the new one. Watch the video and you will be more confident. I was REALLY impressed with the shipping. I ordered on Monday afternoon and when I returned home Tuesday afternoon it was waiting for me on my porch , and this was the week between Christmas and New Year when everyone was fussing about not receiving packages. NOT ME!

I did a search on the internet and was directed to the Parts Select website. Searching for the part I needed was easy. I called the 800 number and was helped verifying the part and availability. The part was ordered and it arrived in two business days. Unfortunately the part did not fit very well. I would have had to modify the part to even attempt to make it fit. I emailed your site and explained my problem and asked if I could return it. I received a return email with directions and information on how to return it. I was very pleased with the service and would not hesitate to order again from Parts Select.com.

Did exactly what the video showed . First I went through the test procedure to conferm my boards were bad . But ice maker didn't work after the control boards were replaced. I did some more research to find out what the problem now could be. I discovered where the water goes into the ice tray the line was frozen. Got the hair dryer out and melted the ice that had the water restricted. Been making ice every since. I tell everybody about (part select) web. Sight now

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...

After determining by the flashing light code what the problem was, I ordered the parts. Once the parts arrived, it took 15 minutes to install them by the instructions that came with them and two hours later I was making ice again. Very easy repair and there is a video on the website that shows exactly how to do it.

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.
