I had a problem with my ice dispenser not dispensing ice. The water worked fine but the ice side didn’t dispense ice. I watch the video on Parts Select.com and it was very helpful, but my model didn’t have screws to remove the front cover. At the bottom of the front cover was two indention where you could put a small tool and pry on it, I had to take a small pick tool and pry up on the front cover to pop it loose. You have to take something small like a pick tool because if you use something like a screwdriver or a butter knife you will get behind the plastic housing (also called a hood) that is screwed to the refrigerator. The key is to remove the face plate from the plastic hood piece (that is screwed to the refrigerator), so you have to get in between the face plate and the plastic housing. If you get behind the plastic housing you can break the housing, you must get between the two pieces and it will pop loose. This is the only problem I had with this installation. The rest of the repair was very easy and now my ice maker dispenses ice great.

I found exact instructions on Youtube. Watched the video. Verified that my Control Bracket was in fact broken by partial disassembly. Ordered the part from PartSeclect. Received the part the next day (though I only paid for ground/standard delivery). Installed the part as described in the video using only two screwdrivers and needlenosed pliers within 14 minutes from start to dispensing water again. My water dispensing was interrupted less than 48 hours. Amazing!!! Thank you. It was fun, fun, fun.PaPa43

The retaining pins, which are part of the control bracket, that hold the micro switch that powers on the ice dispensor had broken, allowing the micro switch to fall away from actuator paddle. I replace the entire control bracket which holds the 2 micro switches, one for ice dispensing and one for water.

Water wouldn't come out of dispenser but ice dispenser was working fine.

I watched the video and removed the tray, but there were no screws underneath it! We tried prying it off with no luck, and then I read the directions from another customer. We removed the door handle, pressed down on the dispensing unit while using a flat head screwdriver to pry off the dispenser unit at the bottom (There are two little slots where the screwdriver fits perfectly.) I was afraid of the thing cracking since it is so old, but it did fine. This was the only hard part. After this was off, the rest of the repair followed the video exactly and it was super easy and took about 5 minutes! As I was detaching the old control bracket, I saw that it was completely broken on the right side. I knew then that this was the correct fix. It was an incredible moment when we tested the dispenser for the first time and water came shooting out! Thanks for your help on this - I would have never dreamed doing a repair like this before, and now i know I can do it.

After watching the vidio I think my wife could have done this repair. It took me about a half hour and the job was done. It cost me $20, No telling what a repair man would have charged. Thank You.
