Watched the video and worked next to the laptop to pause it at every step. Ordered a new plastic locking nut with the auger. Good thing, because the old one cracked when the e-ring was pried off. Put the new auger in and returned the bucket to the freezer. Changed the water filter. Like magic the water dispenser worked again! Made sure the spring-arm moved after cubes were in the bucket. It was stiff. Popped it a few times to make sure the lever worked OK. After the bucket filled checked both ice functions. Cubes dropped right away, crusher worked after a couple tries. Releasing the plastic tabs was the hardest part. WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO, THEN FOLLOW THE STEPS IN ORDER. The ice and water are flowing again! Many thanks for a great how-to video!

The repair was quite easy. The installation video on your web site was a lifesaver. Without your video the installation would have been far more difficult.If you are doing this repair watch the video,it will save you a lot of time and potential problems.

Flapper valve on icemaker wouldn't close anymore

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

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.

My GE Arctica refrigerator was constantly freezing up the chute that drops the ice. I googled the problem and found a youtube video on how to replace the solenoid and the dispenser door flapper. Repair was simple, removed the front panel with a small screwdriver, removed the circuit board and rear plastic assembly. Unscrewed the 2 screws holding the solenoid in place and snapped out the old flapper. Immediately I could tell the problem because the flapper was warped an not allowing a seal to form on the door. Youtube is great and I frequently go there to see if someone has made a video with the maintenance problems that I am having around the house. PartsSelect had my replacements here in one day. Saved a couple of hundred on a service call.

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.
