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!!!

Used 1/4 inch nut driver with swivel to remove the part retaining screw. Held new part into place and installed the retaining screw. Challenge was not hitting the level and putting water on me and the floor during installation. Relatively easy installation as long as you have patients.

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.

1. Remove the ice-maker/water dispenser cover plate located on the freezer door, by: inserting a putty knife blade at the bottom and freeing up the two retainer tabs; then pushing up. (note: be careful pulling the cover plate, there are many electrical connections on the back).

2. Note the electrical connections on the back of the cover plate and locate the connect close to the inside of the freezer door and disconnect it. (Note: this is much easier than pulling each wire off its connection point and then having to remember which color coded wire went where).

3. Carefully work the door hinge pin back out to the right and remove it and the hinge (Note: in my case the pin was already half way out so the old door couldn't close - and since this model door had a heater which came on because the door was misaligned there was constant flow of warm upwards causing ice to melt, run down and re freeze thus making the door difficult to open).

4. Unscrew the single her head screw holding the small metal piece to the right that retains the know upon which the outer door frame turns. Move the frame to the right to free it and work it out if the way. You now have access to the ice-maker door and hinge pin assy.

Defrosted freezer only. . . . Unplugged fridge. Took hairdryer and made sure all access water was turned off to fridge; then kept heat on hose lines behind metal panel for 10 minutes. Saved myself 382. 00 Repair bill and within an hour had the ice machine banging out the ice. When going on vacation, make sure ice maker is turned off and even if it doesn't work when you get back, defrost freezer before calling help! Saves sooo much money and the new fridge I was told I'd have to purchase if it happened again. Don't think so!!!!!!

I discovered the coupler was broken, so I went online to search for a repair. I found the part number for the coupler and washer. I used the short online video that shows step by step how to fix it. It was very easy and now the ice maker dispenses ice again! I researched Sears and your site, and your site with shipping was less expense than Sears. I called Sears and they didn't have the part in stock anywhere close to where I live to pick up, so with their price and shipping, your site was just a couple dollars cheaper. I receive the part very quickly after ordering.

The video on replacing this part was spot on. The screw was a little difficult to remove at first. It had been installed ten years earlier and also had some thread lock installed. A light swat with a hammer on the end of screw driver as I was trying to remove it got the screw started without stripping the Phillips head. Once we got by that little snag, it's a piece of cake, or piece of ice if you prefer.
