I am so amazed at how easy the problem was fixed! I researched the issue, ordered the part, and after watching the youtube video of the part replacement, I was able to fix our water dispencer/ice maker! Saved us purchasing a new refrigerator...Thank you so much!!! Now I am going to fix the dryer.

Icemaker stopped and leaking

Repair was fairly straight forward once I diagnosed what the problem was by reading other peoples problems and repairs on here. I pulled the fridge out & disconnected the power. I shut off the water supply and disconnected it. I removed the back panel and unscrewed the bracket holding the water valve in place then disconnected the electrical connectors from the solenoids that control the valves. At this point I went on a cleaning binge to remove all dust and crud I could get into my vacuum, which is why it took me longer than others. I know it is important to keep the machinery clean so that it can run efficiently so I did it. At this point I used the hairdryer to melt the frozen inlet to the icemaker from the back of the freezer just enough so I could pull it out and remove the frozen blockage. Reinserted the inlet ensuring it was fully reseated in the opening with the foam seal snugly around it. I reinserted the tubes in their respective valve outlets (each is unique size so they cannot be done wrong), next I reassembled the new solenoid valve by reattaching the electrical connectors (mine are keyed which makes it stupid proof) then screwing its bracket back in place. Next I reconnected the water and plugged in the fridge to check for leaks. No leaks (WHEW!!) replace backplate and put fridge back in cubby. Test water dispenser- GOOD. Turn icemaker back on in "quick ice" mode and wait ~40-45 min first batch is GOOD. 5 hours later with about 6-7 batches of ice, all is well- no leaks everything is functional and I am happy.

fridge was stored in garage without heat in winter & froze up,should have drained all water.

Changing the water solinoid was quick and easy but not the problem! After still not getting water to the ice maker,I took the ice maker itself out of the freezer.I could hear something small rattling arround inside the plastic housing.As I took it apart I found a tiny white piece of plastic inside the size of grain of rice.It had broken off the end of an arm that rides on a cam of the electric timer.Without that little plastic tit riding on the cam,it make the maker out of sink! I fixed it by drilling a .080 hole in the spot the piece had broken off.Then I took apart an old broken fishing reel for a screw to use in place of the broken off piece.I re-installed everything and the ice maker has been working as good as new and will hopefully out live the fridge.My solinoid is now a good spare part!!

Water line to outlet water dispenser was frozen half way up the inside of freezer door. I scotch taped a bunch of plastic grocery bags on the interior left water dispenser door.I closed door with bags attached to inside door. I waited fifteen minutes and water was flowing again! First take off plastic coupler at bottom of front of refrigerator. Push plasic cup dispenser back, if water comes out of plastic tube at bottom front of refrigerator, then water valves are ok (if making ice is ok too). if light comes on at dispenser switch is ok also.

Broke ice maker supply tube while moving fridge.

Used nut driver to remove two screws at top of tube, and the three screws holding composite cover on back of fridge. Pulled out the upper portion of tube, pulled up on fitting and removed lower portion of tube. Put upper spout portion of new supply tube into position, replaced two screws, pushed lower portion of tube into locking fitting on supply valve solenoid. Replaced composite cover with three screws, and was done. Entire job took less than 5 minutes. It took longer for me to find my nut driver set, than it took to do the repair. I ordered the part online, and it was delivered to my door in a lightning fast 36 hours. Hopefully I won't ever need any more appliance parts, but with your easy to navigate website, fast shipping, and fair prices, you have won me over as a customer. I will refer you to friends because of your high speed, low drag, zero defects, excellent service. Thank you very much. Rich.

Replace hinge cam risers

  • Customer: Lawrence from Blacksburg VA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

Lessons from this website were excellent. Removal of the upper door hinge with small socket wrench is relatively easy. Remove the door and place on a workbench (I used the kitchen island.) Replacing the upper cam on the bottom of door is also quite simple. However, replacing the lower cam on the L-shaped bracket affixed to the fridge requires drilling out the rivet that holds the lower cam. I removed the bracket and held it to my garage vise to drill the rivet for removal. I had purchased replacement rivets but unfortunately, I purchased the wrong hinge cam (some have large hole and some have small hole for the rivet) and the rivet head slipped through the hole. Instead, I used a small flat head machine screw and nut. Be sure to also use a star washer or locktite since there is frequent circular motion that might loosen the nut.

The Hinge Cam Riser had broken (small plastic part) and needed replaced. Once I had the part it took all of 5 minutes to repair, I emptied all the contents on the door, removed the plastic cover on the top hinge, removed the 2 5/16 nuts holding the hinge then removed the door. I placed the new Hinge Cam Riser on the bottom pin then replaced the door. Works great!

I reached into the refrigerator top shelf for the bottle of milk and my arm caught on the Dairy Door and pulled it from the door and it fell to the floor and shattered. Thanks to you I was able to order another. After couple of weeks, I asked my wife, Rita if we received the Dairy Door. She said, "Oh yes. I installed it already." Boy was I surprised. Rita doesn't do installations!!!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

chunk of curved white plastic came out when my wife was getting crushed ice. The "snow" from the crushed ice over time builds up at the ice chute and distorts the plastic parts around the ice knives. No amount of conversation can get the person to check the chute.

Empty out all the ice. Check how all moving parts operate together and get a clear picture when you replace parts so you know how it is to look upon completion. Unscrew the four screws that hold the front housing together and make sure you remember where you placed them. Three are the same and one is stainless steel at the ice container deflector. Replace the parts and attempt to put it together the first time. The ice auger had to be disconnected with a "C" washer to lock it in place along with a thin washer bearing. Take it apart two or three times to make sure the auger works before going to the next step. After the third or fourth evolution, it was like field stripping your M-1 rifle in boot camp it went so smoothly. It was really simple to do this job, just a little tedious. Now my wife can have crushed ice again and in a few months, some of the same plastic parts may break again because of the "snow" build-up. I know where I can find the parts, or maybe just buy another refrigerator. Thank you for seeing how the repair went. Jim
