The retaining pins, which are part of the control bracket, that hold the micro switch that powers on the ice dispensor had broken, allowing the micro switch to fall away from actuator paddle. I replace the entire control bracket which holds the 2 micro switches, one for ice dispensing and one for water.

I did the repair, but apparently there's an Ice Door Kit with Bracket ( Part #8201756 - PartSelect Number PS990120 ) that has a metal bracket that will actually fix the problem with the broken plastic that holds the pin in.

Replaced the Electronic control boards first, emitter and receiver, and that did not fix the problem. I then order the Control board/motor assembly in the ice maker, this did fix the problem and after a couple of hours I had ice. The repair was easy and the videos on the web site show you step by step.

I started by viewing the video online showing how to make the repair. I then unplugged the fridge, taped the cover of the icemaker up out of the way. It was then a matter of removing three screws on both the emitter and receiver sides of the freezer and two screws each to remove the boards. I uplugged the modular plugs from each board and then reversed the proceedure. Icemaker is now working like new.

No prior experience in appliance repair. The majority of time was used in researching the problem and how to fix it. The Parts-Select website and the comments of prior customers made it easy to diagnose and repair. Unplugged the unit, popped of the ice maker cover to get it out of the way, unscrewed the plate covers for the emitter and receiver, changed them out, replaced the covers, replaced ice maker cover, plugged in. Moved on to the next problem.

Opened freezer section of refergerator and taped Ice Maker cover door in the open position to remove emitter and receiver boards. Unscrewed the phillips head screws that secure the emitter board housing to the refrigerator side wall. Turned off power to the refrigerator and unpluged the emitter, removed the 2 screws that hold the emitter board against the housing and removed it, then I installed the new emitter board in the housing by screwing it in place. Repeated same process for removal and replacement of the receiver board. The whole process took me about 10 minuets.

Ice door assembly broken, freezing up ice maker

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I removed the outside ice door panel with two flat head screw drivers inserted in the slots at the bottom of the panel. You simply pry out until the bottom releases and then you push it up gently to release the top. I then removed the hex head screws that held the outside wire panel and the switches, at this time you need to remove the old plunger that is connected to the top of the ice door assembly. I then disconnected the old heat strip and removed the hex screw that held the ice chute at the bottom. Then I removed the pin and spring that held the ice door assembly at the top. Replaced the parts with new ones provided in the kit. The ice door is no longer freezing up, nor is the ice bucket in the freezer. The freezer is now back to the right temperature, without having to be set on high
