It was easy deterimining the fan needed replacing because it was very loud. I turned the refrgerator off, removed all the bins and shelves from the freezer. You also need to remove the metal sliders and posts that hold the bins and shelves to get the lower back panel out. the motor can be removed without any tools once its exposed. you first have to pull the fan blade off, just pull up, it slips off easily, disconnect the wires by pulling the connector apart, and to remove the motor, squeeze the bracket together while pushing up, it pops right out. I bought the motor kit which included a new mount and vibration isolator, plus a couple of other items that i didnt need, its a good thing i did because the old vibration isolator had deteriorated and was hard. I recommend that when installing the new motor, insert the vibration isolator into the motor mount in the refrigerator first and then push the new motor into the isolator, it goes in very easy that way. Then put the lower part of the isolator in the bracket and install the bracket. If you try to install the bracket and isolator on the motor first, you will have a difficult time installing it into the bracket in the refrigerator. Finally, install the new fan blade by pushing it onto the shaft, hook up the connector, and turn on the refrigerator. If it works fine, reinstall the cover, shelves and racks.

Pulled off front. Detached wires without getting electrocuted. Marked them first so I'd know where they go. Pushed up the thing with wires so I could see the flap door. It had a heat thing in the flap which my replacement part didn't have, so I had to pull it out of the broken flap and insert in the new flap. Snapped flap door in place. Attached black thing loop to white thing. DIdn't use the spring or the white thing. Reattached wires and put on front piece. Everything now works. No more frost in the freezer!!!

ICE CHUTE FREEZING UP

Removal of escutcheon was easy. Replacing icedoor was fairly easy, working with wires in the way was a little distracting but simple. Be careful with microswitches and locating pins. Two of mine broke, had to replace bracket. Simple job again. Everything working fine now. No ice jam in chute. Using needlenose pliers to remove/insert pin is the best and easiest option.

Ice door hinge was broke and not letting door close building up ice between door and ice maker.

Took two screwdrivers and inserted bottom of bezel pryed up and out gently. Removed (4) screws and unpluged (3) electronic plugs removing the circuit board. After you remove bezel & circuit board you have a chance to see what you are doing and get to the problem area with more ease. Remove old parts and reverse it putting the new parts. Process is very simple just pay attention to the order everything was removed. On my frig one of the plastic ears that hold the pin which holds the spring and door was broke. The piece I needed was no longer avaliable. I had to use a piece of the plastic from the old parts I removed, drilled a hole the size of the pin in it and glued it to the broken off ear. Put everything back together and I am pleased to say that everything works fine! So you might need to go a little MacGyver on it. All in all very simple fix.

Ice door broken letting warm air into freezer

  • Customer: Lou from Key Largo FL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

After I ordered the parts, which was very easy to do using this website I read the other comments in reference to this repair. I am in agreement with anyone that said patience is important! The repair went about as expected, the only thing I had to do different was, after I assembled the door, it would not activate. I checked the microswitches for the ice dispenser and found that the arm on the glass bracket was not hitting the switches. I shaved off part of the horn on the back of the arm and that solved the problem!

Ice dispenser door dislodged/broken-causing ice/frost in freezer

  • Customer: LAWRENCE from Gig Harbor WA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Watch the Video! My reefer's ice door/spring 'pin' removal and installation is different than what is shown in the video. That is, my spring 'pin' looks more like a long nail (with a head on the right end). After inserting the left end of the pin into the hole, the head end drops down into a notch, which makes removal and installation easier than what is shown in the video. It is much easier to reinstall everything if the 'ice-chute' is installed first. Then, maneuver the ice door assembly into place and install the pin. I used Blue masking tape to hold the control panel up and out of the way. This is the second ice-door repair since I've had this refrigerator. It seems to occur with 'heavy' use of "crushed" ice. Some crushed ice backs up behind the ice door/flap, jams/holds the flap open, letting warm air into the freezer, causing the crushed ice to freeze into a big 'clump' of ice (too big to come out of the chute, and causes frost in the freezer. If you get a clog like this, I suggest removing the ice "bin" and gently clearing the clog from the top side of the ice chute with tongs or needle nose pliers. If you try to remove the clog from the bottom of the ice chute, the door becomes dislodged or breaks...

Plastic hinge attached to chute door broke

I watched the video showing how to disassemble unit and it showed that there was a heat element inside the chute door under the foam seal that needed to be removed and placed in side the new chute door. I spent about 10-15 minutes trying to salvage the element but the adhesive used would not release and the part was rendered unusable. I called the help line and was told that their instructions on that kit said the heating element was no longer required. I finished putting the kit in and the unit works fine

Ice door would not close

  • Customer: Richard from Springfield MO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Ice door would not close thus letting warm air into the freezer compartment. Thinking the spring was broken, I ordered the Ice Door Kit. When it arrived, I dismantled the dispenser and installed the new parts. After installing all the new parts, I found that my problem was the "Y" end of the bracket that holds the spring pin. It was cracked and would not hold the pin. The bracket seemed to be molded into the panel on the outside of the dispenser. To replace the bracket, I would have had to replace the entire outside panel. I decided to repair the bracket and glue the broken piece. I used cyanoacrylate(CA)super glue that I use in model making. Even though that seemed adequate, I decided to drill a small hole through the bracket, perpendicular to the crack, and install a small screw to strengthen the crack. I also applied a little CA to the screw for good measure. It held fast and so far so good!

Your web site was great. There was a short step by step video on how to remove and replace the ice door kit and tools required. The only additional tool I used was Blue Tape so I could stabilize the inner control panel out of way onto Door.If I need more appliance parts I now know where I am ordering from!!
