I photographed the setup before beginning, but found myself referring to the video provided for the repair. Excellent instruction, and if it wasn't for the video, I would have gotten the blades mixed up, broken some plastic, you know, the typical mistakes a fumblefinger like me would eventually make. Strongly encourage following the step-by-step video for the repair.

Auger blade broke and not providing ice.

  • Customer: Donna from Granbury TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Followed the instructions which walked me through the installation. When I had a question, paused the video instructions and carefully watched the technician and repeated his actions. My results were the same. Amazed how simple after watching the video completely before starting repair. His tip to let sit (and warm up) was vital. Letting the plastic become pliable before attempting to disassemble is critical. Again, watch the video first, pause & replay when you have a question and take you time. You can do it if I can.

Ice maker made only crushed ice, when cubed ice was selected.

Replaced the auger. The Parts Select video was excellent, but it continued to make only crushed ice after installing new auger. I took it back apart and removed the crusher blade assembly and discarded them. Now I have cubed ice only but that is what I wanted anyway!

The auger blades had cracked and broken and the dispenser cover was cracked in half

I went online and found a u-tube video for replacing an auger in an ice dispenser. It matched everything I needed and the process also included replacement of the cover as part of the instructions.. The hard part was removing the cover.. I ended up sliding two table knives in between the outer casing of the ice maker and the inside cover to compress the tabs on both sides.. trying the putty knife (as instructed) I could not get the tab to stay released as I shifted from on side to the other.. each time the other side would slide back in and lock.. the table knives worked nicely.. held the tabs out of the way while I pulled the cover off.. My husband was thrilled I accomplished this.. He's not mechanical at all.. I've been bragging about saving us a bunch of money as well.

NOT that easy getting to Door Ice Dispenser Flap Spring

  • Customer: Anna from San Antonio TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

We watched video, had new flap spring ready and collected tools for job. The Suggested putty knife to remove plastic frame on door did NOT work; Video was Wrong for our Model refrig - There are NO tabs inserted into refrig door, the Frame is fastened by hex screws from the inside the door/ ice troth, which would have entailed us to remove inside rubber door seal, plastic liner, insulation and who knows what else ? maybe wiring. We choose to gently pry off and break the screwed inset channels...... After removing the frame it became EASY, just followed the video details, taking selector facing off, unhooking the wiring, unscrewing wiring panel and removing the flap..... We inspected the solenoid for rust, cleaned it off then installed the new spring on flap lever. Easy Put everything back in place and covered the frame area with metal tape till a new frame arrives.
