I removed the front panel from water dispensor placing a very small screwdriver in the three small holes under the panel. It came free and then I was able to get to the solenoid and switch easily. However, my problem was not solved. It turned out to be the secondary water valve in the back of the unit, which is also an easy repair. The problem with repairs like this is you don't know if you're buying the right part until after you have installed it. Returning the parts are easy except for electrical parts which they won't take back once unstalled. All the parts were delivered the next day, although it said 3 to 5 business days.

Frost built up inside freezer door around the ice dispenser

I read other repairs listed that were related to my problem (found them very helpful). I ordered one of each part listed in the related repairs. I used a plastic putty knife/scraper to get the plastic trim piece to pull away from the freezer door (without marking the door or trim piece). I removed the plastic trim piece (it felt like it would break, but it didn't). I lifted up, and pull out, on the bottom of the control panel unit, and disconnected the wires. Next, I removed the four screws at the corners of the plastic ice chute housing and removed it. This exposes the dispenser door recess crank, recess door spring, recess door retainers (there are two, but I only bought one, no big deal, there was nothing wrong with the old ones), dispenser door solenoid assembly, dispenser door flapper/assembly, and switch. I replaced all of these parts, but I'm pretty sure only the dispenser door solenoid was causing my problem. I cleaned rust and mildew off all of the parts not being replaced and reassembled every thing in reverse order of the dis-assembly. The only thing that made this a little bit difficult was seeing what I was doing up inside the black plastic ice chute housing - the flashlight was a necessity (my wife had to hold it because I need both hands for the little bitty screws, especially those used at the little door retainer clips. Be really careful not to bend the recess door spring - it's easy to do (I bent the new one, and reused the old one).

After identifying a likely solution using other stories on this site, I ordered the replacement valve. Very easy to repair. Just move fridge, unscrew cover in lower rear and change out part located right behind cover. I decided to change the filter at the same time because I didn't know the last time it was done. It could probably be done in 5 minutes, but if your like me you clean everything while its apart.

Very simple, I followed instructions sent with the filter. Twisted old filter clockwise 1/4 turn to remove. Filled new filter with water, lined up arrow on filter to arrow on refrigerator, and then turned 1/4 turn counterclockwise. Filter raised and seated itself. Wiped few drops of water from refrigerator shelf.

Had a repairman come out and quote me over $600 to replace the control panel and the display. I went online and found you guys, watched the video, and replaced the control panel in less than 15 minutes. Your video was great and gave very clear instructions - unplugged the fridge, unscrewed the panel on the back, popped off the control panel and connectors using needle-nose plyers, put new control panel in place and reconnected all the plug-ins, put cover panel back on, plugged fridge in, reconnected and checked display inside front of fridge, it came on and lit up, closed the door and let the fridge cool to the proper temp. The fridge is now working great for around $175 for parts. Thanks!

Freeze and refrigerator sides at times were warmer than normal. Would not dispense water or ice threw door dispenser, also could hear a clicking noise every so often the last about 10 minutes at a time.

UNPLUGGED the Refrigerator.Removed two screw from the panel on the (outside) back, took panel off, removed the wire harnesses, carefully removed old board off of the plastic pins, pushed new board on the pins, put wire harnessed back on in their proper places, put cover back on. Everything that was not working, was working now. Took less than 15 mins..
