Removed the Control Panel and the outside of the Dispenser Outlet. Removed the Flapper Door and the solenoid. Replaced both parts with new parts, and re-assembled. The pin, at the top of the Solenoid was badly worn and the plastic arm was very rough on the surface adjacent to the worn pin.

Pull fridge away from wall and unplug it! Turn water valve off. Open freezer door and stuff a small rag/washcloth in hole where ice exits to keep the cold air in. There are 3 small holes on the bottom of the control panel, stick a small Phillips head screwdriver in the 2 outside holes and pop the control panel out. Pull the 3 connectors out of the back of the control panel. Set the control panel aside. Unscrew 4 Phillips head screws holding the plastic control panel bracket/ice cup/light bulb. Set this piece aside. Unscrew 3 screws that hold solenoid. Mine was completely rusted. Throw the old solenoid in the garbage. All the screws I removed were rusted. Go to home depot get some stainless steel screws that are the same size as the rusted screws and some spray rust inhibitor for metal and a tube of anti-seize. Wipe everything down with 1/10 solution of Clorox/water(q-tips help to get the tight areas)to get rid of all the MOLD. Spray a light coat of rust inhibitor on your new solenoid and let it dry. Coat the metal plunger of your new solenoid with anti- seize lubricant. Replace solenoid and all other screws that are rusted with stainless steel screws. Put the plastic bracket back in with 4 screws. Plug the 3 control panel wires back in and pop the control panel in the bracket. Pull the rag out of the ice chute, turn water back on, plug fridge in and push it back against the wall. Your done and hopefully the extra steps will help your solenoid last longer! Hope this helps!

The flapper on the ice chute was curled up and not creating a good seat, so the chute kept clogging up with frozen condensation, especially during the humid summer months. The online video made it so easy to replace the part myself. I was able to fix the problem in under 15 minutes and at a fraction of the price!

I watched the Utube video, repeated the process at home while awaiting the part, and installed the flapper door in about 15 minutes after it arrived--piece of cake. The hardest part was removing the escutcheon plate on the front of the freezer door. I figured out I could slide a putty knife under it and the rest of the project was completed in no time at all.

Googled how to replace the door seal, ordered parts and replaced the door seal flapper. The video on partselect was not correct for this GE model. However a simple diagran showed you simply remove the control panel directly (pops off) to provide access to the panel. Remove the 4 screws holding the panel, replace the door seal, and reassemble.

Looked at the instructional video and read previous customer comments. Didn't have to dissassemble rear of freezer door. Access through the front once trim ring and circuit board removed. Could not have done it with out the video/and or previous customer comments. Part was shipped and received immediately. Repairs complete! No more frost developing and plugging ice chute! I especially appreciate the customer comments on how to complete this repair!

Disassembled the ice dispenser which became difficult because of very rusted screw heads. After I got dispenser apart, I had to go to a local hardware store to try to find replacement screws. Apparently, appliance screws are specialty items and I had to purchase the screws that most closely matched. I also had to purchase a ice dispenser door solenoid locally since I already had the dispenser all apart and I wanted to complete this job. The solenoid was very rusted as well and not functioning properly. It also took awhile to clean the rust stains off of the dispenser parts. If screws could be purchased along with the new parts that would have been very helpful and stainless screws would end the rusting screw heads issue but not the rusting door solenoid. All good at the end of the day with the sticking dispenser door repaired. Later, I replaced the dual water valve assembly because water was dripping on the ice maker components causing the ice maker to quit working and water was dripping into the bin as well. Replaced valve and that went well but, I still have water dripping on to the ice maker components. I will give it a couple of days to see if it stops and if it does not I will contact PartSelect.com.

I followed the video instructions to the letter and it was very easy and a total success. I believe I would have had problems but for thr video demonstration which was very clear and straight forward in a simple manner. Thanks for the prompt delivery of the part and the help installing it.

Popped off the front frame and front of mother board. unscrewed the assembly to be able to lift up to get to flapper. Lifted it up out of the the way ( wires are attached so it may take one other person to hold it up out of the way). Pop out the old flapper and replace with new one. Easy !

Flapper for the ice-maker not closing all the way

Hardest part was removing the escutcheon around the ice maker on the door. Used a putty knife to find first clip pullout than the rest was easy. Disconnecting plugs from circuit board not as easy as looks, broke one locking clip have to be more careful when lifting the small clips. Once done than removed plastic casing and and easily removed the flapper and replaced with new one. Since I didn't know what I would encounter I ordered a spring and the arm that holds the flapper. I pre- assembled the parts and had it ready to install once I removed the defective part. Whole job under ten minutes...GE service starts at $99.95 just to come and look at it, than parts and labor after that I saved at least $100 dollars. Very easy fix.

It was very hard to remove door front skin

I have a GE Monogram to replace these parts you have to remove the stainless skin front from the freezer door. This is quite difficult and even harder to get back on. Other than the door front it was quite easy. If You can get the stainless on and off every thing else is a breeze. I did it by myself 2 people would help. Thanks and goodluck
