Removed the door (3 bolts on top). Removed the old plastic door closing cam on the bottom. Installed the new one. It was too tall (probably my fault), so I trimmed it with garden shears (it was a tubular piece of plastic). If you do this, be very careful, as the shears cut through the plastic MUCH easier than I thought. Popped the new one on, re-secured the door, and it works great now. Thank you partselect!

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!!!

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.

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

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!

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
