Ice would not come out of the slot

There were pieces of plastic in the tray so figured it had to be the dispenser crusher. Removed it from the ice maker using two knives which was the hard part. Ordered the dispenser crusher which was not the part I needed. Then ordered the dispenser crusher cover. Putting it back together was easy after watching the video online. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver. if you do this repair do not remove the auger from the dispenser crusher. Remove them together.

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.

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.

Replace water filter and connect the tubing. Trun on the water supply and run water through the water despenser until no air comes out. Check for leaks. If there is no leaks replace the the water filter enclosure, the tubing guide hole cover, and the lower pannel on the back.

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.

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!

Ice dispenser chute was blocked by frozen ice.

I watched the instructional videos and read other reports first. Diagnosed the problem as failure of the flapper to close due to worn out flapper. I probably could have just replaced the flapper but ordered the crank and spring also. The solenoid was functional. I removed the dispenser panel several times during the diagnosis and repair process. I removed the trim with putty knife one time and I used a paper clip to release panel clips via three holes on underside once. Both methods work. Per videos, I unplugged and removed control panel, removed and replaced flapper, crank, and spring. Reassembled and now one week later, success no more frozen chute. Thank you Parts Select.

I followed a video supplied with the e-mail notification of the shipment of the part. This was one of the best experiences I have had with locating, purchasing and installing a replacement part for an appliance.

Since my refrig is 18 yrs. old and I never had to replace it, took a little long to remove trim piece on the outside. After that repair went smoothly. I still have problem with water collecting inside on the bottom of the freezer, might have a leak somewhere. Ice maker is functioning correctly.
