First locked the control panel to prevent more water from coming out. Then figured out how to remove the panel (using torque bit), along with the control board and switch. Removed the switch from the assembly, and used a multimeter to diagnose that the switch was intermittently closing. Searched using Google to find the switch part number, and was able to get the best price and match at PartSelect without having to order in bulk. I'm always wary about ordering off eBay, and prefer dealing directly with a supply company. Once the new switch came, it was a snap to install it and reassemble the water dispenser board and front panel. Once assembled, the dispenser worked like new! Overall, it took about an hour or less of diagnosing and work, plus wait time for ordering, and about $25 for the part. Beat calling a repairman and paying $100 for the same work.

The touch pad on the face of the fridge would not activate the ice or water dispensers

Pretty simple really...take out a couple screws and the face plate comes off. Take out the dispenser apparatus behind the face plate and you will see the little lever operated switch that activates the dispensers. Mine had one terminal slightly discolored like it got hot...so that is a good clue. Also, the whole system is pretty simple really, and the switch was clearly the culprit. I got the replacement switch from PartSelect in just a few days, and put it in. The whole deal only takes about 1/2 hour cradle to grave. The dispensers work fine now, and I think I saved at least $150 for a service call. BIG PAPA small

I had to do this repair three years ago and found that the instructions provided by PartSelect were perfect. The video links provided this time on how to disassemble, do repair, and reassemble were extremely helpful. I followed those instructions and completed the job in less than one-half hour. The water now shuts down as it should. I really cannot add to the helpful write-ups by other customers. Thanks

ice tray cracked at ice dispenser auger motor causing auger misalignment..

Removed the ice tray with nut driver, tilted forward to disconnect electrical plug for ice dispenser. Once ice tray was out, removed cube/crush selection solenoid (don't lose spring) and removed auger motor. Now came the tricky part, to remove the auger itself from motor, it is a left handed screw to remove. I used a pair of needle nosed vise grip to hold on to auger shaft, then used channel lock pliers to grab auger and removed. Using the vise grips made it for easy work. Once removed I reinstalled auger motor and ice cube/crush solenoid in reverse order. replaced ice tray into freezer. Works like new!! One tip (I found this out the next morning) The motor, because it is frozen will condense moisture on it when outside the freezer. A) use compressed air to dry before reinstallation. or B) Once installed, run ice dispenser at least once every 15 minutes for about an hour. This will keep the motor from freezing up. I didn't do either, and the next morning the motor was frozen and wouldn't work. I had to break free with pliers (risked doing damage to motor and new ice tray). I was lucky and motor works fine. Good luck!

The motor that drives the ice auger, broke out of the plastic

My Refrigerator is over 10 years old. All the previous instructions helped a great deal, but I have one comment to add to all the other instructions: it took several blows (not taps) with the hammer and channel locks to hold the shaft to free the Yoke from the motor.

The motor that drives the ice auger, broke out of the plastic..

First of all remove the ice tray. Next you can pull the shelf forward enough to get to the electrical connector in the back of the shelf where it is plugged into the refrigerator. Disconnect the plug and then pull the complete shelf out of the refrigerator. The issue is removing the U shaped driver on the motor. You have to turn it clockwise (looking at it from the front) to remove it from the drive shaft in order to install the motor on the new shaft. The problem is the motor wants to turn as well. I used skinny plyers to hold the shaft at the back. I then tapped the U shaped driver a couple times with a small hammer and it came loose. Reinstallation was quite simple.

Plastic incloser that held motor and I've selected, broken loose so the motor was hanging so nothen worked.

Removed by taking self tapping screw from the side. The only thang that had a little difficulty was aligning the plug but with a mirror I was able to plug it in. Then if you doin't get the selecter for cube or cruch ice you will get only crushed. Takes about a total of 2hours.

I shut the water valve and bled the pressure off by using the water dispenser. Removed the four screws that hold the cardboard backing on the unit. Unplugged the power cord, loosened the metal water supply fitting. Then I removed all three hose fittings and dried the drips with a towel. I pushed the electrical plugs off with a flat blade screw driver. Removed the bracket attachment screw and pulled the double valve out. The new valves came with a push-lock fitting for the plastic hoses so I pushed them into their sockets. Put the new valve in and replaced the attachment screw. Reattached the water supply line and the electrical connectors. I turned the water on and checked for leaks. replaced the cardboard backing, and plugged the power cord back in.

the water line broke and the new water line was leaking due to bad connector
