watched the video on your site for instructions and went from there. The removal of the actual dispenser cover from the unit was a bit hard, but once I got it out, things went easy from there. Set the unit out overnight to ensure the plastic was pliable and did not crack.

Dispenser Crusher Cover was broken

I pretty much followed the video. Most of it was a no-brainer, but when I got to the part of pushing in the plastic clips to get to the area that I needed to replace, the video came in handy to reassure me that I wouldn't break them. It also gave hints, i.e. to let the ice maker tray sit at room temperature before you start. I was totally pleased with the ordering, & then being able to replace the broken piece myself. As a female, I enjoy trying to fix things myself.

I removed the ice container with the crusher and saw the crusher cover had pieces of it missing and the broken parts matched the broken areas. I removed the main cover off of the ice crusher and then removed the crusher assembly. Removed the C clip on the auger shaft and then removed ice crusher cover. Received the part and reversed the procedure and re-assembled the the ice container and crusher. Easy job.

The plastic guard that keeps the crushed ice from plashing back into the icecube tray broke I ordered the part and I received the part a lot sooner than I expected , I pulled the ice maker cube container out and removed the screws in the front of the container then unsnapped the front plastic that has the brand name on it, then I removed the large "E-Clip" and took the auger out and removed the clear broken plastic and replaced it with the new part and reinstalled same as I took it apart, All is workinbg fine now...Cheers, Roger

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.

After discovering I could replace the part for a fraction of the cost of having a professional do it, I viewed the short video at part select. I was afraid i was oing to cause further damage when I was forcing the disassembly. The video confirmed I was doing it properly.

Door Was Not Closing

  • Customer: Jerry from Arp TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I watched the video on the website and the repair was done quickly and easily. Turned out I didn't need any parts because the spring that closes the door had somehow gotten out of place. Returned spring to proper position and the door now closes. Due to the door staying open the ice in the dispenser was melting and refreezing, thereby stopping the flow of ice. Without the video I wouldn't have attempted this repair.

Flapper Was Not Closing

  • Customer: Eric from Laguna Niguel CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Removed Flat Panel from front and used screwdrivers to remove screws and access spring and flapper, one note, once i did have access to this section i was able to see that the main reason the flapper was not closing was because the Dispenser Door Solenoid Assembly was frozen solid and needed to be replaced, I had not ordered this part and therefore had to order it at a later time, and repeat the repair, best to open this section up find all the damaged parts and then order...
