Removed control panel by inserting small screwdriver in the 3 holes underneath to loosen. Remove 4 screws holding circuit board . Unplugged 3 connectors.

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!

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.

frost formed because the ice damper let warm air into the freezer

Removed the ice maker control panel and accessed the flapper door, easy switch out for new door and seal. The 2 year old warped seal didn't close and so ice crystals formed in the freezer - new unwarped part and Ta-Da no more problems :)

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.

The trim piece covering the opening of the dispenser is the first and most difficult part of the disassembly. Take care when removing this piece that it does not break.

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.

The flapper on the freezer was warped and allowed humidity to create frost in the freezer.

I watched the how to video and followed the instructions. The entire repair took less than 4 minutes. Hardest thing was disconnecting the control panel.
