Followed the video demo and would have been done sooner but for limited work space- narrow freezer compartment and the release tabs on the electrical plug. First home repair that the air was not blue and got done in under time allocated.

Same repairs required by the majority of the posts. Early in the problem the motor and auger would turn but very little ice would dispense. Problem: Helix lock plate was stripped. Did not replace in time and auger would jam, finally stripping out the dispenser motor shaft. The fix was replace the dispenser motor even though it was only the shaft that was stripped. Entire repair was easy. To replace the Helix Lock remove the entire ice tray. Carefully disassemble the entire unit with a screwdriver/driver, noting the order of the crush blades and other parts for reassembly. Once auger is removed replace the helix lock plate and reassemble ice tray. To replace dispenser motor, use a nut driver to remove motor unit panel from back of the freezer. Only remove the screws necessary to remove the panel from freezer. Not all the screws need to be removed, some attach the motor to the panel and the others are for the dispenser door mechanism. Disconnect the two electrical connectors before removal. Once the panel is removed from the freeze, use pliers or vice grips to hold the motor shaft while removing the auger drive disp attachment. Some posts said they had to cut the shaft with although I was able to pry the attachment until enough of the threads caught and i could twist it off. Once drive auger attachment is removed, remove screws attaching the motor to the panel, disconnect the electrical cords (noting the position) and slide the motor out of the panel. Replace with the new motor and reconnect the electrical connections and screws. Make sure that the dispenser door mechanism is still securely attached and properly aligned. Reattach panel to freezer and reconnect the electrical. Insert ice tray and unit now works properly.

I ordered from your web site because it was soooooo helpful, giving a diagnostic suggestions, given the problem being experience, as well as the percentages of how often certain parts failed. I ordered sensors first, as they were inexpensive to replace. When that didn't solve the problem, I ordered the next likely probable part, and that fixed the problem. I highly recommend your site. Courteous staff and fast response in shipping. I give you 5 stars!

i followed a video that was on your site, the video couldn't have been easier to follow it was step by step and very easy to follow, i replaced the evaporator fan motor and everything is working fine, i did notice that the evaporator coil was frozen pretty bad when i removed the back freezer panel i am going to check it again in a couple of weeks to make sure i don't have a defrosting problem as of now everything is fine i am hoping it was just the bad fan motor causing the coil to freeze up because of no air movement over the coil

Actually before the new ordered part arrived I dismantled the ice making/holding bucket and remeoved the cup. I glued the two parts together at both broken edges with special modelling glue, drilled small holes on either side of the brake, introduced a paper clip and bent the clip behind to hold the pieces together. The cup is stronger than the new one. The new part came a few days later and I'm keeping it for possible future breaks. This repair could have saved me $30+ Thanks for your interest. Erol

Refrigerator was not as cold as usual and freezer was not keeping ice cream solid.

First had to diagnose the problem. From reading others stories, figured it would be the timer, thermostat or heater. First removed the back panel of the freezer. There are 3 screws at top that will need a phillips screw driver and 2 hexagon nuts at bottom. The defrost heater is at the very bottom. If the glass is black, it's burnt out. Got that clue from others. Had to shop for fresh produce and meats as the days went. Put towels at the bottom of freezer over the drain hole so it doesn't overflow while defrosting it the first time. There will be lots of water if the outside of the panel that covers the coils has a sheet of ice on it as well from the build up. Used hair dryer a couple of times every 2 days until the part arrived to avoid a big build up of ice again. Once the part arrived, instead of standing there and defrosting the coils, it was easier to empty the frigerator contents into a cooler. The freezer contents went into outside freezer, probably would be ok in cooler for a day. Unplug and let it defrost overnight. Had plenty of time to plan this because it took at least 5 days to receive the part. Unscrew the bracket, remove the plug-in from both ends of defrost heater/bracket assembly and lift out. Plug in new one, screw in place. You're done. Now hubby can have his coolers back and go fishing! Good as new. Fridge is 38-40 degrees and ice cubes are solid within a few hours. Darn, I won't be getting that French door fridge for awhile, I guess.
