First we googled the GE site and entered in our model number and that is where we found out what the problem may be. We ordered the part, which we were amazed that it came so quickly. It was installed in less than 5 monutes and "boom" problem solved and my fridge is working again with no clicking sound.

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.

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
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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.

Attempted to remove whole bracket per PartSelect YouTube video. Our refrig must have been slightly older or something, because the bracket would not come out no matter how much we begged and pleaded. ~ So we replaced motor in place, which was a headache, but doable. Seems to work fine, and much quieter than the old motor.
