Simple fix with information furnished online with the Dispenser Door Solenoid Assembly. Unplug fridge, remove selection panel by pulling out gently at the bottom until it releases then unplug the 3 connectors, remove next panel by unscrewing the 4 corner screws, then remove the solenoid by loosening the top screw and removing the two on the bottom, wipe all clean and reassemble in reverse with new solenoid hanging piston over ice door flapper lever first then sliding it into solenoid as you move it into position. Easy fix....$35 hopefully extended the life of a faithful older fridge for a few more years since it work/looks new.

Not only was your parts selection very easy to understand,
The Video shows exactly how to install that part.
This was So Easy to repair. I thought I would have to take
the door apart from the inside but the repair was completed
with the door closed and took about 10 to 15 min. to complete.

I repaired IAW the PartSelect video. Very easy. One thing that should be mentioned in the troubleshooting process, is to check the retention spring on the flapper. That spring could come off and also cause the flapper not to close.

Ice maker door was not closing. Snow piled up enough to fall when door was opened.

Turned power off at breaker. Took off front panel on the door. Unscrewed the panel where the electrical parts were plugged in. Then you could unscrew the old solenoid assembly and install the new one. Cleaned around the Ice shute since some mold was there. Put all back together. We watched the video from you tube about 5 times!!

Performed repair per the PartSelect on-linevideo. Some posters had said the solenoid could be rusted, so I had ordered one. Turned out to be fine, and I have returned it. I much appreciated the hint from another poster, that it was no longer necessary to pry the escutcheon off the door, and merely pressing inside the outer 2 holes on the bottom of the control panel would suffice. I encountered no complications. Frist problem is gone.

Simple repair. On this 2004 model the button panel is removed by pulling lower part of panel out and down. No need to remove bezel. Remove four screws and a quick switch out of parts! I added an extra half hour to install as I cleaned the flapper area, ice shoot, etc.

I followed instructions from a video. I pulled off the front panel, then the circuit board unit. Next I removed the Solenoid Assembly and installed the new one. I replaced everything and tested the water dispenser with no success. I assume the solenoid assembly was ok so therefore I need to get the circuit board tested.

Watching the outstanding, detailed video provided the insight and confidence necessary to place the part order and complete the repair. The most difficult part of the procedure was removal of the front panel that identifies the buttons for various functions (i.e. water, ice, crushed ice, etc). Note that this panel differs slightly from one model to another so the process may be slightly more difficult than pictured in the video. Our refrigerator has removable decorator panels which I removed first (both above and below the dispenser section), an additional step I strongly recommend for owners of models with such panels. To do so, a male Torx socket is required to remove screws at the top of the door, allowing the metal side panel on the left to be removed, prior to sliding the decorator panels out. Now onto removing the front panel as in the video - although the video repairman completed this step without any tools, it must be CAREFULLY pried by hand. Experience has taught me that older plastic parts that "snap in" often become fatigued and suffer stress fractures if not breaking off entirely. This is a fairly rigid piece of plastic on our unit that wasn't cooperative until I coaxed it from one (left) side with a large, flat screwdriver and a little twisting motion to get things started. Once I was able to pop one corner loose, the other 7 connecting tabs were relatively easy to remove (there are 8 total - 2 on each side as I recall). The rest of the process was simple, exactly as demonstrated in the video. Thanks SO MUCH for all of the expertise and high production values that made this repair "a piece of cake". Incidentally, by simply removing the old solenoid ASAP, the door snaps shut, sealing off the freezer compartment while you wait for your new part to arrive.

Gentlemen,

Many thanks for the help in repairing my GE refrigerator. From the web site and videos, I determined the problem with the flapper on my ice maker was a bad solenoid. I ordered the part from you then followed the step by step instructions to install it. It made what seemed to be an intimidating job rather easy.

Thanks again,

Gary Schafer

Being a General Contractor with 35 years experience, I have a lot of experience building and fixing homes. I watched the video on your website, and got my tools out and completed the job. I highly would highly recommend your website for parts & customer service.

Flapper Door was not opening wide enough to allow ice to flow down the chute. The flapper door was staying open with ice jammed in it.

Contrary to the visual instructions I could not remove the frame around the control opening nor did it turn out need to be removed. The control panel was easily removeable with a small screw driver inserted in the two outer holes at the bottom. Once this was removed I removed the four screws removing the panel with the chute and giving access to the solenoid. The three screws holding the solenoid were rusty and I applied some liquid wrench on each to help with the removal while I cleaned around the area. The solenoid was easily removed but the screws needed replacement which I obtained at my local hardware. Once the solenoid was attached again I replaced the other parts as they were removed and the flapper door is now working as it should. It took all of about 15 minutes for the repair but two days to figure out I did not have to remove the opening frame. Somewhere in the "Repair Film" it should be mentioned that for some Models removal of the "Opening Frame" may not be necessary just proceed to removing the Control Panel.

Changed after watching U-Tube instructions. Faced trouble with the magnet assembly, had to redo it again, and it worked.
