Video made troubleshooting problem easy. I ordered the parts and 5 days later I had them. 10 minutes later they were installed and that night I had ice. This is the third appliance I have repaired using the partsselect video and replacement parts. All worked well. Much cheaper than getting a technician. Thank you. Cheap Guy!

A repairman wanted $600.00 to fix our ice maker. I paid him $88.00 for his "service call" & asked him to leave. I ordered & replaced the ice maker machine & the ice maker still would not work, so I replaced the 2 optics boards next. Replacing the ice maker was most challenging because the plug is so hard to get at, but the 2 optics boards were pretty easy. Just watch the video on PartSelect.com. Work slowly & take your time when pulling out & replacing the optics boards. There were a total of 6 screws for the 2 optics boards. It took me approximately 10 minutes to replace both boards, & now my ice maker is working perfectly! I am thrilled!!

We had cleaned the electronic eyes off several times which yielded one or two days of ice production. Since we could tell the ice maker was receiving water and producing ice we went ahead and replaced the controller. Now the ice maker is working like a champ. The instructions were easy to follow and the part was delivered quickly. Unplugged the fridge. Three screws on opposite sides of the freezer, plug in the emitter and receiver boards and replace the screws. Plug the fridge back in and away it went.

1. I first confirmed that the problem was a bad Infrared Ice making control board (Watched flashing of red light on right side of freezer - solid light would not occur when holding flap on left side of freezer). 2. I unplugged refridg,3. unscrewed both sides of the control unit and disconnected wire clips to the electronic boards. 4.popped in new Boards on both sides and connected clips onto each board. 5. Screwed the boards and covers to walls of freezer. 6. Plugged power back into wall and checked Red light again (when holding flap in, a continuous red light verified it would work). closed freezer and shortly ice was being made. Simple process. (careful using Screwdriver to help take wire off of boards - a small clip holds wire clip on - you need to stick screwdriver into back of clip while unconnecting). Easy and my ice worked perfectly.

Replaced the emitter and receiver boards by following the video instruction. Unscrew the cover plate, disconnect the wire, remove and replace the board and re-install. Repair was very easy and the unit is back in service.

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...

Ice dispenser was broken

My handyman did the repair. It was pretty easy for him. It would have been a real puzzle if we had not watched the video instructions. The new parts were slightly different than the old parts, but they fit perfectly. I thawed the frost buildup around the ice door and the opening of the ice bin with a hair drier, to get the ice to come out properly. Thank you so much for the video!

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

Ice despenser stoped working, auger motor worked if door flap was opened fully manuallyw

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!
