Used tip of needle nose pliers to release the plastic retaining pin and was able to slide the tracks out. I was able to install one of the new tracks by hand but the other would not slide in place. I had to use some taps with a rubber hammer to start it. I never saw what it was hanging up on, but the hammer did the trick. Were it not for the snag, the install would have taken about two minutes. The bin and sliders are working perfectly.

The bracket when mfg'ed had plastic molded round (bud like pieces on both ends of new bracket. In order for the bracket to be flush and to fit, I had to saw off the round nubs off. After I did this, the bracket fit without any more problems.

With a little help of the hammer, I gently tapped the track in place. It wasn't difficult to replace. It was a tight fit, but fit. Thanks again. I will shop this site again for parts.

Couldn't snap the track in no matter how much pressure I exerted. Was afraid I would break the plastic. Maybe it was the wrong part. Found a suggestion in the partsselect tips area. Used a nail file to slowly sand/grind down the plastic hubs. Took my time doing each one several times. Tested installation after each round of sanding down, so as not to go too far. Eventually (5 or 10 minutes of sanding) it popped right into place. What was even more amazing to me is that I ordered the part around 2P.M. on Friday and it was delivered to NJ the next day(Saturday) before noon.

watched the video provided on this site. I thought I would have to buy the whole glass panel and then the video showed how the tacks pop off and how easy it was to put the new ones on. So glad to have found this site. I will check here whenever I need a part. Also, the item arrived in 2 days!

I removed the part and read the part number and ordered the motor. I received the motor three days later. It took about ten to fifteen minutes to replace the motor and another ten minutes to replace all the other parts. The motor was the answer. We have dispensed ice again.

On the inside of the freezer door, I removed the ice bin (not sure it was needed, but I did it) and then removed two screws holding the motor compartment cover (above the second from the bottom shelf in the door). The motor was then visible, and I removed 4 screws (one in each corner of the motor) holding the motor in place. Took the motor out, and put the new motor in place (had to align the auger so that the flat side of it would fit into the motor collar). Replaced the four screws holding the motor in place, and replace the cover with the two screws... done. worked perfectly in about 10 minutes.

I called the authorized repair company and received an estimate of $300 +, with minimum $75 to look at it. That motivated me to try it myself. Removed two nuts on either side of auger on inside of door, then pulled out shaft and set aside. Shut door, removed drip shelf, and removed the two Phillips head screws, pulled cover, unplugged wiring harness and set cover aside. Auger motor is covered by kind of card stock paper cover with foil on inside. Lifted that out of way and removed the four nuts attaching the motor. Unplugged and removed motor and replaced with new motor. Replaced the four nuts, plugged in the new motor, lowered the paper cover. Re-attached the ice door cover with the two Phillips head screws. Opened door, replaced auger drive shaft with the two nuts and replaced ice canister. Works perfectly. 20 minutes and the cost of the motor - estimate I saved $200+ for 20 minutes work.

Ice despencer did not despense ice.

Removed and replaced the Ice Auger Drive motor. I performed the motor removal and replacement as described in the instructions on your web site. The problem I had was with replacing the rubber seal on the bottom of the auger shaft. I had to remove the cardboard assembly (two screws) in order to get the seal back on the auger shaft. The smaller rubber washer and plastic spacer fell away from the auger shaft when I pulled the shaft out. I had to go back to your schematic and review the proper location of those two items before I did the reinstall. That info was not included in the web instructions. Overall, the web instructions were helpful with my repair. My dispenser now works great.

Auger motor bad

Ice dispensing was Intermittent so I didn't know if the motor was the problem. Preceding instructions were very clear so I won't repeat them. One thing that was tricky is the rubber washer between the shaft and motor. No big deal but it requires a little patience to get it in place. Unit works perfect and steady. Overall, very satisfied with the ability to troubleshoot in the website and of course the instructions and part itself (OEM).
