Pan slide track tolerance too tight

  • Customer: Trent from Otsego, MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The slide track is designed to slide directly into the slotted metal rails in a no tools required application. However, the tabs in the plastic slide track were slightly bowed inward which decreased the tolerance required to slide freely. After several attempts the plastic then became slightly gouged by the metal rail further preventing the slide track from sliding all the way into place and into the detent. I ended up using a small file to file down the plastic slide track just a bit to remove the gouged plastic and create the required tolerance to allow the slide track to slide into its intended position.

Nail set was used to push a locking bump to free the old slide. New slide had large bumps on each end which didn't allow tabs to engage mounting.slots on holder. File was used to reduce size of bumps. Original slide had a single bump in the center which fit intro a hole allowing the slide to lock in place securely.

Removed the refrigerator door (after taking everything out of the shelves). Took the old Lower Door Closing Cam off (it was totally worn down), installed the new one, rehung the door. Rehanging the door took a couple of tries to get it properly aligned. Very easy fix, We thought we had to replace the refrigerator since it is 14 years old, but this fixed the problem completely!

  • Difficulty: Really Easy

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Openned both doors and removed lower grille. Closed doors and placed a piece of wood underneath door. The piece of wood slightly taller so that it supports and lifts the door while I worked. Working at the bottom of the door removed both upper and lower plastic cams and replaced with new ones. Be sure to tighten the single screw that holds down the plastic cam; if you leave them loose they will split/crack because they will move as you operate the door.

Remove front dust grill at bottom, pulls off with a little muscle.. While this is I found it to be a good time to vacuum area. Remove two screws at bottom in front with nut driver. Lift wire on left out. Hold filter unit and grasp water line and pull steadily repeat for other line. Remove old filter housing and reassemble. The worst was having to buy the whole part just for the keeper.

It was a easy enough repair. A little bit tough to press locks in to release hoses because lines were not long enough to pull out for under the refrigerator.

Water dispensor leaking/Retainer clip bent

  • Customer: glen from Rancho Cucamonga, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I couldn't figure out if the front plate would come off so getting access to the screw to unscrew it was problematic at first. I don't have whatever tool you need to get at that angle so I used an Allen wrench with a 6.5 mm socket to unscrew the screw and replace the clip. After figuring that combination out it went really fast.

Google refrigerator Model #, found your site, saw parts diagram right away, clicked on part 'Ice Door Kit', noticed your video on how to do repair yourself, showed it to my husband, ordered part, and it arrived the next day. That was the hardest part of the whole repair. I have been without use of the ice dispenser for about 9 months - took 20 minutes from opening box to getting ice again and saved myself a whole lot of money. I am one happy camper!!!
