The video explains it well, however, for those with the built-in model, the one with the wood panels, things are a bit different. Thanks to another writer, I received help. After you unscrew and remove the two side metal décor strips from the freezer, you are left with how to remove the no-screws décor ice/water panel. It does NOT slide out. You must carefully bend the panel out and away from its top and bottom tracks. I do wonder why not just make it slide out, but no such luck. Be careful not to over bend. However, once you begin bending from the middle out, it will become clear to you how its going to come out. Also, with this panel removed, and left hanging there, it is not necessary to unplug any of those electrical connects. The only electrical work is removing the light from the control bracket you are replacing, as shown in the video. I found bending the décor panel back in place was easier than pulling it out. Be sure to unplug the unit. Plug found at top of refrigerator behind very top wood panel. You will need to easily remove this very top wood panel, and you will need a step ladder to reach plug.

Temperature in freezer too cold. Temperature display showed higher temperature than actual which caused the freezer to continually run. Thermister is found behind a white box on wall in freezer. Unscrew the box from wall and easily disconnect the thermistor clamp. Replace in reverse order.

I ordered a new micro switch to do the repair. When I took face plate off the front of door two pieces of broken plastic fell out. Those pieces were part of what holds the switch in place, I need to order that part but I was able to use small tie wraps to hold switch in place and it has been working for a week now. The videos on this site are very helpful and gave me confidence to do the repair.

I had already removed the ice container & realized the very end of the auger (drum) was broken. I still don't know why this part is plastic. I ordered the auger drum on Monday & received the part Wednesday morning by Fedex. I then retrieved your repair video by Steve on-line and paused it as I duplicated each step. The process was really very easy (I even surprised myself). The unit now works as it did when new. To think I went for over a month and the repair was so simple and inexpensive. Thanks also to your customer service rep who put my mind at ease that this was the correct part (My auger was totally plastic & different from the one in the illustration). He said if my model number said this part would fit, then it would and it did.

My ice maker quit working

I have some electronics background but your listed problems helped me narrow down the problem. I ordered the part, removed old part, installed new part (maybe 15 minutes total) and my icemaker started dumping the ice that was in the tray within 20 minutes and making more. That clunking sound of ice was music to me ears and wallet!! Thanks!!

Ice maker wasn't getting water

I called a repair man out to see what the problem was because my husband just died and I didn't want to pay such high prices for a repair. He told me I needed a new motor for the ice maker and it would be a total of about 305.00. I couldn't believe the price. It cost me 59.99 for his diagnosis. I went to your web site and found the part and watched you installation video. I am 65 years old and I was able to install the new part in less than 15 min. The part was about 95.00. I saved 150.00 by doing it myself. I will always look on line before I have a repair man do a job. I may need them to diagnose the problem, but I will try myself before paying such outrageous fees.

Watched the trouble shooting & installation videos , checked to make sure water was getting to the door. I look'ed closely at the entire unit. Every thing seem'ed to be ok. I made a guess as to which part to order. The control motor or the thermostat. The control motor made more sense to me. I made the right guess. Works like new.

First I removed the top bracket cover screw with a 5/16" nut driver. placing it aside, I removed the three screws holding the top door hinge off using a 5/16" socket on a 1/4 drive to free the screws , then continued to remove them with the nut driver. placing them aside on top of the refrigerator. Then I lifted the door up and off the lower hinge and laid the door down on my kitchen counter. I removed the lower hinge piece from the lower bracket still on the fridge with a 5/16" nut driver and installed the new piece in its place and also applied a few dots of Vaseline on the lower hinge piece, I then removed the screw and lower bracket from the door and installed the new one and also applied some Vaseline on this piece also. I also took a rag that had been dipped in olive oil and rubbed the entire gasket surround the door to lubricate the gasket to keep it soft, then I reinstalled the door back onto its lower bracket, and then lined door back up correctly and reinstalled the top mounting bracket and screws then the cover, and then tested door. Door opens now with no noise and opens easier also.
