Slip the front cover off by gently pulling down, carefully un-plug the wire connectors (x3), remove 4 screws and remove paddle assembly. 2 screws hold the flap on and 3 hold the solenoid. Replace the screws with stainless so they won't rust. I tried coating the solenoid in lithum grease to prevent rust, onlt time will tell if it works.

Some screws was rusted so I take more time.

Removed the Control Panel and the outside of the Dispenser Outlet. Removed the Flapper Door and the solenoid. Replaced both parts with new parts, and re-assembled. The pin, at the top of the Solenoid was badly worn and the plastic arm was very rough on the surface adjacent to the worn pin.

Ice was freezing in clumps in the shute(in door itself) and prohibiting the flapper from closing. Warm air enters from the kitchen through this opening and melts/freezes the cubes in shute into a clump.

1-Duct taped around the rectangular grid on the face of the door.2-Usinng a putty knife I removed the frame(just held with small plastic grommits3-The front panel with buttons for water/ice etc---push up and remove.4-Did not unplug the refrigerator until after this item was lifted up and I duct taped it to the refrigerator door to keep it out of the way.5-Once taped out of the way I unplugged from electrical.(***there was no need to unclip the small connectors to this panel----less likely to break the prongs if the above is followed)6-2-3 screws removed the solenoid which in my case was my problem(((Solenoid was completely destroyed by the amount of rust that it exhibited. ******If you have to replace flapper and or it and the spring-----this doesn't look very difficult either. Just keep the doors shut while electric out. I'm handy but not an expert on anything---doing it was easier than what I expected. Should take no more than 1-2 hours

Watched the videos for replacing both the solenoid and the ice door flapper. Ordered the parts, watched the videos again and changed out the parts. I used a Philips head screwdriver and a little WD40 to clean up some rust. The instructions in the video were very easy to follow and simplified the process. PartsSelect's video showed the demonstration on a refer like mine as opposed to another site, which helped me be familiar whenI opened it up.

Ice Door Not Closing, building up ice in refrigerator

  • Customer: David from Oviedo FL
  • Difficulty: Easy

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.

Shoot for icemaker would freeze up. Pieces of ice would get stuck and than freeze together.Dispenser Door Flapper would not fully close anymore.

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.

ice door would not open or when manually oppened would not close.

The first thing I did before starting the repair was watch the 2 videos. I followed the directions step by step and within an hour I had a functioning ice maker again. I had searched all over the web and the other sites were of no help. Your site really made it easy to figure out the problem and order the right parts. I now have a problem with my dishwasher so I will be back on your site soon. Thanks!

Ice maker freezing up and not dispensing cubes

I tried to follow the video...it looked easy enough to do and would have been if the trim came off! I had to go to the reviewer who said to undo the 3 springs under the keypad (found on the white part behind the touchpad). I just took an eyeglass screwdriver and pushed up...it was easy to follow the solenoid installation video from there! If I can do it...anyone can! I'm a 65year old female.
