Ice cubes were falling out of dispenser door

Upon inspection I discovered the Dispenser Crusher Cover was broken which allowed the ice to bypass the normal route. I went to your website and found a customer's testimony regarding a similar problem. It was titled "Noticed pieces of broken plastic in my ice cubes." I ordered a new Dispenser Crusher Cover, ran a copy of the testimony and waited for the part which came in within three days. I followed the instructions in the testimony and the problem was corrected in less than 30 minutes.

The icemaker was not dispensing ice.

The dispense cover was cracked and would not allow the blades to circulate, so it would not dispense ice. There was an excellent video on this page that explained how to remove it and replace it. The main trick is to be sure that the ice bin is left out so it will warm and make it easier to remove the parts.

Pieces of plastic shards dispensed with ice

Followed the video provided by PartSelect. It was very helpful. The most difficult step was removing the ice crusher unit. The instructions say to use the putty knife to depress the tabs while pressing on the bottom of the crusher to release it. The tabs are much tighter than indicated, and there is no easy place on the bottom of the crusher to apply pressure. Even though the unit was thoroughly thawed, there was still slight cracking of the plastic housing. Really needed a second set of hands. Once the crusher is released, replacing the crusher cover was literally a snap and now the entire unit works like new. Saved me a couple of hundred bucks.

Crusher Cover cracked

I followed the video. Everything was extremely easy, but I am 74 years old, have never repaired anything, and have arthritis in my hands. When I got to the step where I had to push in on the tabs, I couldn't do it. I had a friend push in while I pushed up...voila! But it took two of us. I also had a little trouble putting the spring back as it had been a few days since I had removed it. For us beginners, Steve, close-ups of things would be useful. I LOVE this site, however, and will use it again. You saved me over a hundred dollars! (I know because this lousy part has broken twice before.) Now that I know its name, I will not be crushing ice anymore.

I followed the instructions on the video presentation, stopping the video each time until I had completed the described step. Only one minor change from the video...my refrigerator door (stainless steel) does not have the plastic edging around the control panel as shown in the video. It took me a minute or two to figure out that I had to push the tabs on the bottom of the control panel. The rest was easy.

Frost inside freezer door and water dispenser line freezing

  • Customer: James from Marietta GA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I followed the video instructions (very helpful) and used others comments for removing the control panel. For the latter I used a small allen wrench to carefully wedge the bottom two indents (look from below panel edge) slightly up and forward to release the panel. Next, after removing the four screws, the assembly (housing shield) removed fairly easily. I then had full access to the flapper and removed this carefully with the pliers so as not to damage the piece it was attached to (Dispenser Door Recess Crank?). The rubber outer flange on the otherwise plastic flapper was very irregular for approx. 1/4 of the circumference and thus did not seal. So far it's been one week and no more frost build up or frozen water dispenser line.

Took the paper clip, pressed in through the holes on the bottom of the ice dispenser panel. Removed the four screws. Loosened the panel and removed the wires. replaced the flapper door. Then reversed the process. Your video was VERY helpful except for the paper clip. Had to get that off another web site.

Replaced flapper, which was in surprisingly good condition. Major part of repair was removing a lot of mold incurred from long term seepage of room air into the ice channel. In the process of the repair, I discovered that the solenoid to the right of the flapper was hanging up badly. I removed it and cleaned both the plunger and the interior cone of the solenoid with alcohol. This removed quite a bit of rust and some mold. Reinstalled solenoid, replaced flapper and it works just fine. May need to replace solenoid if problem recurs. Certainly worth $37.00!

Ice flapper warped.

The Ice flapper was warped therefore, it was not closing well. Because of this, the ice dispenser got air in it and the ice cubes would deice causing to make a chunk of ice inside.I went on line, order the part ($5.75 + tax= $12.00) checked Part Select video and did it myself. It really is as seen on the video. It took me less than 10 minutes! I saved $200.00

removed front assembly as shown in video replaced flapper,recess crank, recess door spring. Selinoid was rusted so bad and could not function. Replaced selinoid and screws, placed a light coating of Vaseline on all metal parts to protect them from moisture. Should be made of aluminium, good to have someone hold a flashlight for you.

I decided to replace my ice flap while replacing the solenoid. It was easily done while the face plate and control panel were already off. The problem I encountered was that the flap did not seal properly, thus I ended up with frost in the ice chute and on the ice box so the ice would not come out. Also, the water dispenser would not work because it froze up from the cold air coming out of the ice flap. I got another flap, but had the same problem. Finally adjusted the spring that helps hold the flap closed. That helped but there is still not a tight seal.
