I watched the video on the PartSelect.com website and decided to give it a try. The replacement of the flapper was even easier than I anticipated! The old flapper was extremely warped and was allowing air into the freezer. I'm not sure how/why it was in that condition but I am happy to report that I have no more ice buildup. Thank you, PartSelect!

Had to take front panel off dispenser area. Then remove components and install new part. That was easy part. Problem was getting components back into front of freezer. Seemed like something was blocking it from going all the way in. Had to remove small amount of insulation and "jiggle" components and eventually fell into place.

Watched the videos for all three parts, most of each video were repeating instructions on getting door parts separated and ready for replacement. Replaced all 3 parts, flap, spring and crank since it was inexpensive to do as a complete assembly.

Removed all parts to get to the LEFT Hand Thread nylon nut that holds the auger in place. I used a stiff putty knife inserted in the slot of the LEFT Hand Threaded nut to unscrew the nut and then when finished to tighten the nut. Also be careful when removing the plastic covers as they are held in place with plastic catches that can break. I used a thin flat blade screw driver on each side of the covers to gently pry the covers apart. Also note the position and number of the metal fingers and nylon spacers on the auger, a photo of the assembly is helpful.

I did the repair per the video;pausing the video as I went along. I hit some snags which I refer as stop points, which may result in buying the entire assembly instead. I trudged through having to back track and disassemble 2 times. I made it through to a functioning unit. I am sure I would do better in the future. Overall, a good and sucessful experience.

I followed the PartSelect repair video to replace the ice bucket auger and it was the greatest thing I've ever seen. There's no telling how long this repair would have taken if the video had not walked me through the perfect steps to fix the problem. The video was clear and concise and perfect! It was as if I had the repairman in my kitchen holding my hand step by step as I replaced the part. The video made simple what would have been a complicated and arduous task had I tried to figure it out on my own. The repair video is the only thing you'll need to perform this repair (as well as a couple of screw drivers, chanel locks, and a putty knife)!
