Ice Bin Drive Ring replacement

  • Customer: George from Pleasaton CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Easy repair - Don't over complicate it. 1) Flip up ice bar to stop making new ice. 2) Pull out the complete ice bin/tray. 3) shut freezer door while you work on the ice bin. 4) All you need to do is remove the 4 screws holding the ice bin holding tray to the front of the Ice cutting section in the front. 5) Screw drive can then be pulled forward to remove the old/broken white drive cap. Just replace the White Drive ring, put the drive screw back into the ice bin tray and re-install the 4 screws. 6) When re-inserting the bin, you may have to twist the screw drive slightly to re-align with the motor bracket in the back of the freezer. Suggestion: throw out old ice because if it is wet or slightly melted, when you put it back in the freezer the ice will freeze/clump together into a large ice clump; not cubes. Also dry out the ice bin so there is no water to freeze up or create a new jam when the ice bin now re-freezes.

I replaced the door kit, solenoid and return spring. The old door was worn out and was no longer attached to the return spring. The repair was very simple and the instruction kit sent with the replacement parts was extremely informative and helpful. This repair took less then five minutes.

Ice maker not producing ice & ice door not closing

  • Customer: Dennis from Churchville PA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

After receiving the parts to repair the ice door, I replaced the solenoid and new chute door without problem. Then a problem I had been experiencing for well over a year, re-emerged. No Ice! I realized the icemaker was old, over 12 years and that the Teflon within the wells as well as the contacts for the timer were well worn. The ease of finding parts and the instructions provided by PartSelect, (written, video and users), I would attempt the replacement of the Ice Maker. When I examined the Freezer, I also identified that the Ice Maker shelf and enclosure (where the auger that drives the ice) was broken and barely hanging in place. I quickly identified the additional parts and ordered them. The total repair took about 60 minutes. and was treated to the sound of ice dropping into the bin by early evening. I am very pleased with the service, the quality of the products and the helpful hints from fellow users. I have added PartSelect to my IE favorites and it will be my first stop when I need repairs for any of my appliances.

I took my computer down to the kitchen and went play by play with the video of the man doing the repair on the same exact refrigerator that I have. That was the part that was easy because it was explained very well and you could see what he was doing. My only problem was finding the right tools to use.

Followed video from site. There was one extra wire to disconnect, but it was obvious and not really a surprise considering age of refrigerator. Great assist.

I watched a 5-minute video of a man removing the door hinge, the face plate, the other connections down to the actuator itself. I called Emerald and talked to Ron Harrigan (Fresno CA). He pointed me to the video and said it was a simply operation. I followed the instruction step by step, but when I finished, the light in the front of the door would not come on and the dispenser would put out water but not ice. I called Ron again. He said, "Go through the process again, step by step." When I got to step two, I saw that I had not securely fastened two electrical joints together. I snapped those babies into place, and it was all downhill! We have ice. We have water. We have an actuator that sings! Thanks, video. Thanks, Ron.

Installation was exactly as demonstrated on the "How To" video your website provided. Glad I came to you folks for parts, and will do so again. Parts arriving in a little less than 2 days from time ordered was a pleasant surprise.

When pad was depressed it would either not activate or it would not shut off and I would have to open door to stop the ice flow

First of all, I am a woman and I don't have a lot of tools but I do like to try to fix things on my own before shelling out $ for a professional repair. I found and followed their YouTube video to fix the fridge. To begin with (before I even ordered the part) I needed to find out if it could be something other than the actuator pad that needed to be replaced so I took everything apart (pretty easy) and checked to make sure that the 'Limit switch' was clicking and able to be depressed by the tip of the actuator pad (the actuator pads connects with the Limit Switch which activates the ice flow). It did click. So I figured the Limit Switch was not the problem so I put everything back together and ordered the actuator pad. When it arrived I was already a pro at knowing what needed to be done. I had it replaced in about 15 minutes and its working great!! Thank you so much for your videos on You Tube. I wouldn't have known what to do. You saved me a bundle of money!! Blessings to you all. Senior in Indianapolis.

Unplugged refrigerator 1st to avoid shocks. Took off the front/outside panel of freezer door at ice/water dispenser (6 screws) and disconnected the single electronics plug-in .Pulled off old rubber covered actuator and replaced with new one. Easy. Would recommend cleaning contacts prior to replacing cover. Works like a charm now! Thx. DB
