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.

Had to take front panel off dispenser area. Then remove components and install new part. That was easy part. Problem was getting components back into front of freezer. Seemed like something was blocking it from going all the way in. Had to remove small amount of insulation and "jiggle" components and eventually fell into place.

I followed a video supplied with the e-mail notification of the shipment of the part. This was one of the best experiences I have had with locating, purchasing and installing a replacement part for an appliance.

Took the paper clip, pressed in through the holes on the bottom of the ice dispenser panel. Removed the four screws. Loosened the panel and removed the wires. replaced the flapper door. Then reversed the process. Your video was VERY helpful except for the paper clip. Had to get that off another web site.

I followed the instructions on the video presentation, stopping the video each time until I had completed the described step. Only one minor change from the video...my refrigerator door (stainless steel) does not have the plastic edging around the control panel as shown in the video. It took me a minute or two to figure out that I had to push the tabs on the bottom of the control panel. The rest was easy.

Frost inside freezer door and water dispenser line freezing

  • Customer: James from Marietta GA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I followed the video instructions (very helpful) and used others comments for removing the control panel. For the latter I used a small allen wrench to carefully wedge the bottom two indents (look from below panel edge) slightly up and forward to release the panel. Next, after removing the four screws, the assembly (housing shield) removed fairly easily. I then had full access to the flapper and removed this carefully with the pliers so as not to damage the piece it was attached to (Dispenser Door Recess Crank?). The rubber outer flange on the otherwise plastic flapper was very irregular for approx. 1/4 of the circumference and thus did not seal. So far it's been one week and no more frost build up or frozen water dispenser line.

I watched the video on the PartSelect.com website and decided to give it a try. The replacement of the flapper was even easier than I anticipated! The old flapper was extremely warped and was allowing air into the freezer. I'm not sure how/why it was in that condition but I am happy to report that I have no more ice buildup. Thank you, PartSelect!

Since my refrig is 18 yrs. old and I never had to replace it, took a little long to remove trim piece on the outside. After that repair went smoothly. I still have problem with water collecting inside on the bottom of the freezer, might have a leak somewhere. Ice maker is functioning correctly.

Ice dispenser chute was blocked by frozen ice.

I watched the instructional videos and read other reports first. Diagnosed the problem as failure of the flapper to close due to worn out flapper. I probably could have just replaced the flapper but ordered the crank and spring also. The solenoid was functional. I removed the dispenser panel several times during the diagnosis and repair process. I removed the trim with putty knife one time and I used a paper clip to release panel clips via three holes on underside once. Both methods work. Per videos, I unplugged and removed control panel, removed and replaced flapper, crank, and spring. Reassembled and now one week later, success no more frozen chute. Thank you Parts Select.

removed front assembly as shown in video replaced flapper,recess crank, recess door spring. Selinoid was rusted so bad and could not function. Replaced selinoid and screws, placed a light coating of Vaseline on all metal parts to protect them from moisture. Should be made of aluminium, good to have someone hold a flashlight for you.
