Simple easy to follow instruction, very easy removal and installation. But for someone without mechanical skill, I dont see it being as easy as it was for me.

I ordered the part and was sent a link to a video that did a great step by step visual of the repair. I had my laptop and played the video ( paused a few times to catch up) and had the repair done within an about 30-45 minutes. The video covered everything that needed to be done it was great.

My husband did the repair while I was at work, he said it was a bit difficult. The ice bucket had to be taken apart, but it is working fine now.

The last coil on the end of my auger had broke off and the ice tray would not feed ice out of the box.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The ice maker tray was removed and the e-clip was removed from the end of the auger shaft,I then released the snap clip retainers and removed al the screws to romove the end of the Ice crusher section on the box.(It is a good idea to run this whole unit under hot water as the plastic could crack if to much force is applied during dissasembly. Plastic can be brittle when very cold). The shaft (auger)was extracted and the plastic retainer nut removed with a channel lock plier. Careful as it has a left hand thread. I was then able to remove the crusher blades and bushings from the end of the auger shaft and reassembled the parts on the new shaft. Refer to the parts catolog blowup view page on the website for proper installation of these parts if you get them mixed up. It is of great help. I then reassembled the auger back into the box and reassembled the other parts and screws to finish assembly. Popped it back into the frezzer and it works perfect. Tools required were nothing more than a thick kitchen towel to hold the Auger down and a flathead screwdriver for the e-clip retainer. A channel lock plier to take of the end nut as it has no flats for a wrench and a phillips screw driver for a couple of screws. Total time was about 20 minutes. I probably saved about $100.00 in doing this myself. Thanks again to PartSelect for getting my paet to me in a couple days.

REPAIR IS FAIRLY SIMPLE YOU DO NEED TO KNOW THAT NUT AT END OF AUGER IS LEFT HAND THREAD AND ICE CRUSHER ASSEMBLY ONLY GOES TOGETHER ONE WAY. SO PAY ATTENTION SURING DISASSEMBLY

Ice not dropping in chute, frequent freezing up of dispenser.

  • Customer: Robert from Richmond Hill GA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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.

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

  • Customer: Roger from Hernando FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

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.

Dispensor Door not closing

I followed the video, repair was quick and easy. I replaced more parts than needed but I don't want to have to repair the door mechanism a second time.

flapper would stay open with cubes lodged in it

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

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!

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!

Ice Door Not Closing, building up ice in refrigerator

  • Customer: David from Oviedo FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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.
