Installation went fairly smooth, only problem was because it is a side by side freezer space was a little tight and screws were hard to see, but other than that works fine.

Unplug refrigerator and turn water supple off. Remove three mounting mounting screws and unplug the old ice maker.(there is a latch on the plug to release it) Remove shutoff arm from old unit or if ordered seperatly with the ice maker, install shutoff arm on the new unit. Plug the new unit in (latch will snap into place when plug is properly seated.) Install the bottom screw (leave screws loose until all are started in the orginal holes). Tighten screws and you are done. Turn the water on and plug refrigerator in. After about an hour or two the ice maker will be cold enough to start making ice. In about five hours or so you will see the first ice cubes!!!!

Ice door would not close

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

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!!

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

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...

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 would not have attempted the repairs without your instruction. I use a Drimel tool with a abravise blade to cut the part off the shaft. After I realized the Drimel tool would work. It took me parhaps 10 minutes to get it off the shaft. I had already ordered the new part and the job was complete. Thanks for the help. Ron Burch

I was unable to remove the old part so I threaded the new part in front of it. They both fit within the actuator. Done!

Icemaker shaft did not turn to dispense ice

It tool me a while to diagnose the problem but realized the ice dispenser motor coupling had failed. It fooled me for a while because it turned on the motor but could not turn the plastic shaft inside the icemaker. I found the instructions for an almost identical repair on your website. 1)I removed the motor. In my case the wiring harness came right off.2) I turned the coupling by hand and found that although it turned, it was actually loose on the motor shaft. I then knew it was the problem. 3) The threads were apparently cross threated. 4) As a prior user suggested on your site, I used a hacksaw to cut the old coupling off, being careful to not damage the remaining threads. 5) I ordered the new coupling which arrived very quickly 6) I screwed it on to the motor shaft (remember it is a left hand thread). 7) Presto!! My icemaker works. As the other user suggested, I did not have to use washers as spacers. The new coupling was better made than the old one and actually has ~1/8" nut or spacer already welded to the coupling. My thanks to those before me who helped make this a successful repair.

Ice mold was leaking causing all the ice to freeze into one chunk.

Got the main bolts off and unplugged and removed the ice maker. Had to remove all parts and rebuild it on the new mold. Was more complex than I thought but was able to get it done. Note where everything was as you take it off and you'll do fine.
