icemaker augur had fractured

  • Customer: John from Cape Coral FL
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I followed very carefully the instructions in the video online, and without this there is no way I could have done the repair because a critical step involves removing a plastic cover over the cutter blade compartment, and it is really hard to remove. After trying many approaches, I finally took faith from the video that it would slide out but it required much force. I am unable to understand why anything would be engineered this way, it could have been made much easier and more intuitive. Once that problem was solved, the rest went smoothly. Video was excellent.

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.

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.

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.

I watched the Utube video, repeated the process at home while awaiting the part, and installed the flapper door in about 15 minutes after it arrived--piece of cake. The hardest part was removing the escutcheon plate on the front of the freezer door. I figured out I could slide a putty knife under it and the rest of the project was completed in no time at all.

The flapper on the ice chute was curled up and not creating a good seat, so the chute kept clogging up with frozen condensation, especially during the humid summer months. The online video made it so easy to replace the part myself. I was able to fix the problem in under 15 minutes and at a fraction of the price!

I followed the video instructions to the letter and it was very easy and a total success. I believe I would have had problems but for thr video demonstration which was very clear and straight forward in a simple manner. Thanks for the prompt delivery of the part and the help installing it.

Ice dispenser door sticks open and water dripping into ice bin.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours

Disassembled the ice dispenser which became difficult because of very rusted screw heads. After I got dispenser apart, I had to go to a local hardware store to try to find replacement screws. Apparently, appliance screws are specialty items and I had to purchase the screws that most closely matched. I also had to purchase a ice dispenser door solenoid locally since I already had the dispenser all apart and I wanted to complete this job. The solenoid was very rusted as well and not functioning properly. It also took awhile to clean the rust stains off of the dispenser parts. If screws could be purchased along with the new parts that would have been very helpful and stainless screws would end the rusting screw heads issue but not the rusting door solenoid. All good at the end of the day with the sticking dispenser door repaired. Later, I replaced the dual water valve assembly because water was dripping on the ice maker components causing the ice maker to quit working and water was dripping into the bin as well. Replaced valve and that went well but, I still have water dripping on to the ice maker components. I will give it a couple of days to see if it stops and if it does not I will contact PartSelect.com.

Looked at the instructional video and read previous customer comments. Didn't have to dissassemble rear of freezer door. Access through the front once trim ring and circuit board removed. Could not have done it with out the video/and or previous customer comments. Part was shipped and received immediately. Repairs complete! No more frost developing and plugging ice chute! I especially appreciate the customer comments on how to complete this repair!

Your Video really made it easy, showing the actual replacment of the part. However I did have one problem, which was I could not unplug the panel just by pulling on the plugs. A locking catch is on each plug so I just moved the panel out of the way.

Flapper valve on icemaker wouldn't close anymore

  • Customer: james from ocran ridge FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Watched a video as prep. Popped plastic trim off(always scary, thinking plastic will break and it won't go back on), unscrewed control panel and popped wires off. replaced the items I had bought except micro switch which was fine. cleaned all the muck off the innards, replaced all plastic without anguish. I filled a glass with ice and watched with glee as the flapper slammed shut, keeping room air out and curing my iced up icemaker problem. God bless PartSelect!

flapper would stay open with cubes lodged in it

  • Customer: Joe from Harkers Is. NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Used a putty knife to pry trim up around dispensing unit. Look up behind bottom edge of control panel for three small holes.(use flashlight) Used a small (1/8") phillips screwdriver to press up in holes to release panel. Remove flapper unit and selenoid. I changed black rubber flapper and solenoid. The solenoid is designed to hold the flapper unit open to allow all the cubes to clear the chute and it then is closed by the small spring after the delay. Works fine!

Solenoid and screws rust until the solenoid will not function and the assembly flapper will not close.

Removed all parts necessary, solenoid, recess retainer, dispencer door recess crank, and assembly flapper. Hardest part was getting old highly rusted screws out so I could remove the necessary parts. I replaced all screws with stainless steal screws, so the next time they will come out easier. This is the second time i've had to replace the solenoid because of rusty solenoid plunger, very poor design, not to mention the couple times i've taken the solenoid out to clean off the rust, but eventually its stops working because of the excessive rust on the plunger.
