Ice Build up in the ice cube storage bin

  • Customer: Carol from Yucaipa CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Socket set

If the ice maker mold develops a hole it will leak water causing an ice icicle to form on the bottom. If this is your symptom its time to replace the ice maker. The first step is to shut off water supply and unplug refrigerator. Next loosen the two upper screws and try not to remove them. On the bottom towards the front of the ice maker there is one screw. This is mounting bracket screw, remove it completely. At this point hold the ice maker a push it upwards to remove it from the upper mounting brackets. Once it is free from the mounting brackets you will have access to the wiring harness. The plug clips in place so you will have to spread it while unplugging it. Most likely you will have to remove shut-off arm and may be the heat shield as well from old unit. You may have to tug them some what to remove them from the front of the old ice maker. Suggest wearing work gloves for this step to avoid being cut. Install parts on the new ice maker by snapping them in place. Verify that the new icemaker has the correct wiring harness if so you are all set to install it. Place the new unit in the compartment and plug it in. Make sure it is also lined up in the rear where the water tube is a well. Now line up the upper screws with both support brackets and push down gently to lock them in. Install lower mounting screw. Snug up the upper screws enough so the unit is flush to the freezer wall and feels secure. Turn on water supply and plug in the refrigerator. Your Done And A Hero to your better half.

Based on research done on your site, I concluded that my problems was the icemaker control. The video showed me exactly what to do. During removal, I dropped the unit and broke the water fill cup. Ordered the control unit (as well as a replacement for the broken cup). Installed in about ten minutes. You really can't mess up. It only goes in one way! The next day, bucket was full of ice. Thanks for all the help. I figured I saved $200.00 on the cost of a technician call.

Ice door assembly broken, freezing up ice maker

  • Customer: Sandra from Burlington NC
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I removed the outside ice door panel with two flat head screw drivers inserted in the slots at the bottom of the panel. You simply pry out until the bottom releases and then you push it up gently to release the top. I then removed the hex head screws that held the outside wire panel and the switches, at this time you need to remove the old plunger that is connected to the top of the ice door assembly. I then disconnected the old heat strip and removed the hex screw that held the ice chute at the bottom. Then I removed the pin and spring that held the ice door assembly at the top. Replaced the parts with new ones provided in the kit. The ice door is no longer freezing up, nor is the ice bucket in the freezer. The freezer is now back to the right temperature, without having to be set on high

Followed the lead of David from Chesterfield in prying off out cover, unplugging it and setting it aside. Unscrewed and pulled out next assemply, and taped it above work area to avoid having to unplug. The pried pulled out pin to right holding ice door hinge to remove old unit. (Notice which way the spring faces before removing!) Unplugged it. Ended up taking off push-dispenser handle (one screw on right) to get easier access. Then reinserted long pin being careful to have spring with two long tongs pointing down. Then put everything back together. USE ALL PARTS!

Door would not close properly and was out of vertical alignment

  • Customer: Timothy from Ashburn VA

Removed door, removed both upper and lower cam and replaced, applied small amount of vasoline and replaced the door. The entire repair took less than 5 minutes. Door works great. When replacing the cam you need to replace both the upper and lower cam. When you order the parts, the upper cam is on the door schematic and the lower cam is on the refrigerator body schematic. I originally only ordered the upper cam.

popping sound when door opened beyond 90 degrees

I would never attempt an appliance repair but after watching the video instructions for installing this part I decided to give it a try even though I'm dangerous with a screwdriver. After retrieving a nutdriver from my $39 handy dandy tool set, it was a piece of cake. Upper hinge cover, hinge, door removal, comes off in a matter of minutes. Only problem surfaced when I went to install my new cam in the lower hinge. It didn't fit. It was actually for the upper door hinge. I reinstalled the lower plastic piece (whatever it's called), tightened it down, put the door back on (you can do it yourself if it's the refrig. side) and popping sound was gone. I guess the bottom hinge plastic piece was probably loose but you can't tighten it unless you remove the door. I now have a upper door cam in my drawer ready when it fails and will replace it without hesitation.

All you need is nut driver. Top hinge has 3 screws. Once you remove the screws, lift door. It is light. I place door of my sofa. I removed screws and pried the cam insert with a spatula. You can also you flat screwdriver. I also replace the other piece located at bottom of refrigerator. Now place door back onto metal rest. May need someone near floor to guide you. Once on the rest, close door and replace top screws. Forgot to mention that I emptied door shelves before removing door.

Took the bolts at the bottom of the door off and removed the door. Pried out the old cam and put the new one in. Put the door back on and it works like it is brand new. The fridge is 13+ years old

Refrigerator door wouldn't stay closed

If you are having this problem, read this. My refrigerator door would not stay closed. This was over a year and a half time period. I thought it was something complicated and told my wife to call a repairman. Thank goodness she does what she does best - not listening to me! I finally had enough and went online and googled my problem and found PartsSelect. PartSelect had a repair video showing how to fix the problem. If you are like me, I'm very cautious about purchasing from a website in which I'm not familiar. PartsSelect is a reputable site (I promise I do not work for them). My refrigerator is over 8 years old and they had the part I needed, a lower door cam, along with a video on how to install the part. This honestly took about 5-10 minutes to do and I did it without any help. I was so aggravated at myself for waiting so long at doing this!! I actually ordered 2 of these parts, just for the next time. You can do this.
