Ice flap was sweating

  • Customer: Susan from Charlottesville, VA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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.

I identified the noise was coming from the coils / and the fan. Cleaning the fan helped reduce the noise a bit but it still kept recurring. I ordered the part, which was really easy using the diagram on the website. The instructions and the video were really helpful and was able to remove the old motor and replace it with the new one with relative ease. While there I cleaned the fan blade and vacuumed the surrounding area. This whole repair went quite smoothly and has given me the confidence to take on other repairs before calling out the repairman.

Slip the front cover off by gently pulling down, carefully un-plug the wire connectors (x3), remove 4 screws and remove paddle assembly. 2 screws hold the flap on and 3 hold the solenoid. Replace the screws with stainless so they won't rust. I tried coating the solenoid in lithum grease to prevent rust, onlt time will tell if it works.

Some screws was rusted so I take more time.

Repair was rather simple. Removed the appropriate shelves and to make it easy to get to. Removed the ice container. I had to remove several items to get to the evaporator fan. Removed the ice dispenser motor cover, air duct cover, and the evaporator orifice cover. After all was removed the fan assembly was still attached to the orifice cover by the evaporator fan bracket. Remove bracket to remove the fan motor and assembly. Replace the all the old parts with the new and start the reassembly process. Really the only difficult part was working in such a small area. Good luck.

Remove the old slides and install the new. Remove the masking tape from the cover pan glass and replace drawers.

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.

Turned the water off to the refrigerator. Pulled the refrigerator away from the wall opening. Removed the back lower panel. Removed the lines to the water valve. Removed the electrical connections. Installed the water lines on the new valve and verified they would not pull out of the push in connections. Installed the electrical connections. Turned the water on and checked for leaks and proper operation. Reinstalled the back panel and positioned the refrigerator in it's proper position.

plastic parts came out in my drink and "locked open" the ice dispenser door, resulting in water line freeze up

I was able to fairly confidently identify the problem from the on line parts break down. Having had an appliance repairman tell me the inside door seal would need removing to access the dispenser, I searched comments in the blog, and found a note that one only had to poke the two tabs on the bottom of the control panel to remove it, and easily access everything. After that, it was a few screws, some minor assembly to remove/replace the light and switch, and very easy replacement. I was able to reuse the dislodged flapper seal, and didn't need either spring, but compared to the repairman's estimate, I still came out a couple hundred bucks ahead. thanks
