water actuator broke

unplugged the refrigerator after pulling it away from the wall. Removed the water tray fairly easily. I read from other experiences about the water tube, i was prepared. I clamp a surgical clamp to the tube before removing the dispenser module. Look at the water dispenser you will see a white tube protruding, clamp it to prevent it from backing out. I removed three screws and the ice/water dispenser removal was a cinch. Two screws were removed and the actuator snapped out and new one installed. Be careful of the panel power strip, if it comes out it can be easily reinserted. Just make sure you get it in correctly. The fitting holding the strip will slide down slightly , enough to insert the power strip and push it back in. 30-45 mins only snag was not paying attention to the orientation of the power strip. If I had removed it at first would have made the job simplier. in other words i installed the strip backwards and when powering up had no display, removed panel reversed the strip and all is well.
Even with this mishap, 30-45 min was consumed. Have fun DIYER's

Original gate broke at the swivel point

  • Customer: Charles from New Orleans, LA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

I removed the old gate by using a flat head screw driver to pry open mouth. I then removed 2 bolts that held on the cage that hols the ice crushing blades. Then I inserted the new gate and used a screw driver to pry the mouth open again (it was more difficult to insert than remove). I then popped in the new gate and re-assembled the cage. It worked on the first shot with no problems!

This is the 3rd time I have attemped and successfully repaired major home appliances myself after the warrenty ran out. I'm sure I could buy a new appliance for the money I saved.

Water dispenser lever snapped

Turn of power at the circuit breaker.
Remove the water tray by pulling straight towards you.
Remove the three screws at the bottom of the control panel.
Have someone hold the control panel while you remove the six small screws that retain the circuit board.
Gently ease the circuit panel away from the plastic frame and disconnect the six wire connector on the left hand end, followed by the two light connectors with black & red wires, then remove the four wires with spade connectors from the microswitches - noting where each goes. The control panel & circuit board can then be set aside.
Remove the three screws that retain the interior plastic frame. The plastic frame can then be eased forward taking care not to pull out the water pipe. This allows access to the screws that hold the actuators, which should both be removed. Unhook the spring & remove the broken actuator. Feed the new actuator wire up from the bottom of the frame and insert the left hand pivot first and twist gently to snap the right hand pivot into its recess. Replace the retaining plates & screws. Don't forget to the hook the actuator spring into its clip. Test the operation and ease the plastic frame back into position and attach with the screws.
Re-connect and reassemble the circuit board and front panel in the reverse order.
Power on and enjoy a glass of fresh cold water! You may need to press the reset button on the front panel to reset the lights in the actuators.

I replaced the water valve, but it still did not fix the problem.The old water valve I took out I'm assuming worked fine, I think the real problem is ice building up in pipe or some other blockage.

Parts select was very fast in shipping, very positive experience with them.
I will definitely purchase again from this site.

Removed the ice maker. Took off the cover and proceed to remove the motor. The only trick was to dis-assemble the electrical connector to replace the wires. I chose to do this rather than splice the new motor into the existing system and it was simple with a little patience.

Easiest repair to make and half / third the money for a new ice maker. The in-laws have ice again (it was over a year).

The water dispense lever snapped..replacement needed

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

It wasn't clear how to disassemble the Ice / Water dispensing unit to get at the lever for replacement BUT the website had a great exploded parts view of the door and assembly so I was able to print that and from the diagrams you can easily work out how to pull it apart..
A bit fiddly and you need to power down the Fridge as there's 120v behind this panel (tip : dont drag out a heavy fridge, flip the breaker at the main panel to isolate the power) .

All fixed for $50 , compared to having to call out some guy who'd charge me $100 plus parts !! great deal !
Thanks !
