Water dispenser lever snapped

  • Customer: Elaine from Bridgewater, NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 9 of 11 people found this instruction helpful
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.

Once I recieved the new filter, I enthusiastically opened the box, removed the filter from it's packaging and set it aside for quick access. I opened the refrigerator door, pushed the release button on the old filter and pulled it out. I then tossed the old filter in the trash.
Once that was done, I removed the 2 rubber caps covering the inlet and outlets on the new filter. Then, with ace precision, I guided the new filter back into the slot until it clicked. I ran the water for 3 minutes as the instructions suggested, then, had a glass of water.
Mission accomplished and it went off without a single hitch!

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.

We followed the video instructions and it went fairly smooth. After turning off the water at the street we found that the faucet at the wall had it's own "on/off" valve. When finished, we turned on the power and heard the gears going through their revolutions, but no ice was made. We waited 24 hours and still no ice. I removed the cover on the ice maker and adjusted the amount of water to see if that was malfunctioning. Still no ice was created. Waited another 24 hours - nothing. Waited another 24 hours (the site said that sometimes the ice maker would take time to reset itself) - nothing. Then on the fourth day after changing out the triple water valve we heard water being dispensed and later that day it put out the first ice in weeks. Another hour later another batch of ice cubes were ready and deposited into the bin. Since that time, we have had a full bin. I moved the set screw back to it's original setting because a little too much water was being delivered. The cubes weren't separating to individual cubes. That cleared up the problem. This was easily completed - we recommend others do their own work. Just be patient for the system to reset itself.

The water dispense lever snapped..replacement needed

  • Customer: nicholas from la verne, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 8 of 11 people found this instruction helpful
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 !

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
  • 8 of 12 people found this instruction helpful
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 actuator arm broke

Not too bad, remove the water and ice bezel (3 philips screws) then remove the dispenser unit another 3-4 philips screws. Remove water line from dispenser unit (remember this as the water tube re-insertion is the complicated part) I did not remove anything other then components listed above. Seals and inner door stay intact. Replaceing the actuator and arm was easy. two small philips will free the actuator and arm. Disconnect the two wire harness (black and red) NOTE- there are two sets of black and red wire harnesses that plug in next to each other. One is for the ice dispenser and the other for the water. putting it back together is as easy as taking it apart. However the water line has no play, no slack at all so when reinserting it, the space between the dispenser unit and the door itself is limited. Put the tip of the hose down into the hole you removed it from, hold the dispenser still and use a pair of long needle nose pliers to push (feed) the hose down into the hole. Make sure it comes out the other side by about 1/4 inch to insure it is in and stable. reinstall the unit and bezel. Most of my time was spent feeding the short water tube back in place. You will see just how much room there is between the dispenser and the door before you pull the water tube from the unit. In this case you can judge if it will be too complicated for you before you go any further.
