It was a tough job to replace the drawer slide rails at the bottom of the refrgerator on both the left and right sides. I had to get on the floor on my knees and stomach to get my head inside trying to see the work to be done. First the screws from the broken drawer slide rails had to be removed. The screws in the front part of the rails were a little easier than those in the middle. (Fortunately, there were none in the back.) The screws are hidden in cylindrical grooves and one can't get its head in far enough to see. The middle ones are extremely difficult when on your kneees and stomach. Using a trouble light inside helped a little. The screws in the middle were really tough especially inserting and starting the turning, both in loosening and tightening. Fortunately, I had long nose snips that allowed me to brarely grab the end of the Philips screws and gently insert them in the grooves. Then with luck in aligning the sacrews. I was able to start the tightening but had to use my left hand on the right side as there was no room for my right hand. The total job took a few hours of struggle but I finally finished the job and it was perfect. If I ever have to do it again, I'll know the procedure better. The completion of this task gave me great satisfaction. I think my description here is probably more than neeeded.

Broken auger and housing

  • Customer: Edmond from Hamilton OH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Repairs were simplified by watching the on-line video. Only problem was the screw on collar on the end of the auger was broken and the only way I could buy it was to purchase the entire unit for @129.00. If it was available with the entire unit why couldn't I buy it by itself? I wound up drilling out the end of the collar and putting a small screw and washer in it to hold the D ring in place. Working great so far.

Had pieces of plastic in Ice.

  • Customer: Robert from Clermont FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Replaced the piece that I thought was bad but discovered it was not the part that needed to be replaced. Lesson learned is take the ice bucket apart to be sure what part is bad and needs replacing.

ice falling out of the door onto floor

Ordered part using the schematic, it got here the next day!! Took out the ice bin, using the 2 butter knives, I pried the side clips and slipped the dispenser out, , I removed the broken plate, and carefully threaded the auger into the hole of the new plate, slid it into the dispenser and seated clips, placed back into ice bin and attached the 3 screws on the bottom to hold in place! A 70 yr old lady repairman, who would have thought it.

Pieces of plastic shards dispensed with ice

Followed the video provided by PartSelect. It was very helpful. The most difficult step was removing the ice crusher unit. The instructions say to use the putty knife to depress the tabs while pressing on the bottom of the crusher to release it. The tabs are much tighter than indicated, and there is no easy place on the bottom of the crusher to apply pressure. Even though the unit was thoroughly thawed, there was still slight cracking of the plastic housing. Really needed a second set of hands. Once the crusher is released, replacing the crusher cover was literally a snap and now the entire unit works like new. Saved me a couple of hundred bucks.

Crusher Cover cracked

  • Customer: Holly from Norman OK
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I followed the video. Everything was extremely easy, but I am 74 years old, have never repaired anything, and have arthritis in my hands. When I got to the step where I had to push in on the tabs, I couldn't do it. I had a friend push in while I pushed up...voila! But it took two of us. I also had a little trouble putting the spring back as it had been a few days since I had removed it. For us beginners, Steve, close-ups of things would be useful. I LOVE this site, however, and will use it again. You saved me over a hundred dollars! (I know because this lousy part has broken twice before.) Now that I know its name, I will not be crushing ice anymore.

The icemaker was not dispensing ice.

  • Customer: Sherryl from Farmington AR
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The dispense cover was cracked and would not allow the blades to circulate, so it would not dispense ice. There was an excellent video on this page that explained how to remove it and replace it. The main trick is to be sure that the ice bin is left out so it will warm and make it easier to remove the parts.

Ice would not come out of the slot

  • Customer: Thomas from Pahrump NV
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

There were pieces of plastic in the tray so figured it had to be the dispenser crusher. Removed it from the ice maker using two knives which was the hard part. Ordered the dispenser crusher which was not the part I needed. Then ordered the dispenser crusher cover. Putting it back together was easy after watching the video online. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver. if you do this repair do not remove the auger from the dispenser crusher. Remove them together.

Ice cubes were falling out of dispenser door

  • Customer: Kenneth from The Villages FL
  • Difficulty: Easy

Upon inspection I discovered the Dispenser Crusher Cover was broken which allowed the ice to bypass the normal route. I went to your website and found a customer's testimony regarding a similar problem. It was titled "Noticed pieces of broken plastic in my ice cubes." I ordered a new Dispenser Crusher Cover, ran a copy of the testimony and waited for the part which came in within three days. I followed the instructions in the testimony and the problem was corrected in less than 30 minutes.

auger for ice dispenser was broken and we thought cover was also broken

  • Customer: Sharon from Woodstock VA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

Although I didn't need the crusher cover after all, the process was similar to a point (much easier than replacing the auger). Moved the laptop to the kitchen counter and watched the repair instruction video all the way through. As I worked on the ice dispenser, I dragged the video timer back to the part where I was having a problem and rewatched it - sometimes several times to see a detail. The video can be accessed from the electronic part page under instructions. Follow the instructor's lead and you can't go wrong. The instructor was familiar with the process and made it look like a breeze - it wasn't, but was do-able. FYI: I'm a 68 year old female; if I can do it - you can, too.

Pieces of broken plastic in ice

I removed the ice container with the crusher and saw the crusher cover had pieces of it missing and the broken parts matched the broken areas. I removed the main cover off of the ice crusher and then removed the crusher assembly. Removed the C clip on the auger shaft and then removed ice crusher cover. Received the part and reversed the procedure and re-assembled the the ice container and crusher. Easy job.

Dispenser Crusher Cover was broken

I pretty much followed the video. Most of it was a no-brainer, but when I got to the part of pushing in the plastic clips to get to the area that I needed to replace, the video came in handy to reassure me that I wouldn't break them. It also gave hints, i.e. to let the ice maker tray sit at room temperature before you start. I was totally pleased with the ordering, & then being able to replace the broken piece myself. As a female, I enjoy trying to fix things myself.
