Ice Door Not Closing, building up ice in refrigerator

Disconnected power to unit. Using small Allen wrench unhooked 2 catches in electronic control panel. There are two holes underneath. Push up and pull out on panel as you release the catches. Remove wires. Remove 4 Phillips head screws in plastic panel, then remove panel. Solenoid has 3 screws. I replaced my screws being they were very rusty along with the solenoid. The spring on the door is easily replaced by removing two small screws on each side of the door hinge. There probably was nothing wrong with the old spring but for insurance replaced. Put the unit back together, no more ice buildup and clogging in ice chute through door. Likely saved $100 in labor repair bill by doing myself. Note: There is a few seconds time delay on the door closing. At first I thought I hadn't fixed the problem but then realized a delay in built into the system to avoid the door getting caught on any slow falling ice.

I watched the vidio on your site, it was very helpful. Careful lifted the frame, unhooked the display panel. With phillip screwdriver took the 4 srews off, unhooked the pc board. Take out 2 srews for the doorflapper. Loosen top screw for soliniod, take out 2 bottom srews and take out soliniod. Clean up area with paper-towel. Replace all new parts. And it works great again.

When I clicked on the part to see it's description the pop up window included a youtube video on how to install the part. The video was right on the mark. Very easy installation. Phillips screwdriver was the only tool needed. Repair performed in less than 15 minutes. I have used this site before and it has been extremely helpful in saving me money by doing the repairs myself instead of paying an arm and a leg for a repairman to do it.

I followed the instructions in your video (pretty cool). I did have problems removing the escutcheon as your video directed. My refrigerator is different. I found three small holes at the bottom of the instrument panel. I used a small Allen (hex) wrench to pop the retaining clips out of the holes and the instrument panel could then be removed. I didn't have to remove the escutcheon at all. Everything else went as your video showed. Ice maker works great now.

Freezer "flapper" would not shut causing condensation

I reviewed several You Tube repair videos. Not all of them were correct even though my model and brand were specifically mentioned in the videos. Use You Tube with a grain of salt. After sifting through the you tubes, I distilled the information by looking for consistencies. The most inconsistent information was on how to remove the plastic bezels. Once that was figured out, the repair was very easy. Upon removal, I inspected the solenoid. It was very rusted and was no longer capable of pulling the mechanism closed after it had (successfully) opened the flap. The new solenoid fixed the problem in a flash.

I saw the video on the Part select website how to replace the Auger and Auger Nut. I ordered the parts and proceeded with the installation which was relatively simple. The video was extremely helpful. I don't think I would have attempted the repair without it. Also Parts Select reps were extremely professional and made sure the parts were applicable to my model before shipping.

I followed the instructions on the youtube video supplied with the shipping confirmation email. At 3:06 on the video, the repairman states, "next we have to depress a tab on each side at the top". This comment leads you to believe the tabs actually "depress". They do NOT! The tabs on my ice bucket are solid protrusions on the side of the front assembly. You must work the sides of the ice bucket away from them without bracking the bucket. "It's fairly snug in there" is a gross understatement!! Once I managed to remove the assembly, without breaking anything, the rest of the disassembly and reassembly was a breeze.

Followed the on line video. It was a piece of cake. Have also replaced a defrost heater using their video (at a different time). Also excellent. The new part came in a factory sealed bag. undamaged. Followed the very well done video on changing the auger...2hrs later was having a bourbon on the rocks. Thumbs Up.
