We just pried off the fan blades and pushed on the new part. Could not have been easier. The rat has been permanently dipatched and, hopefully, that is that.

fridge was stored in garage without heat in winter & froze up,should have drained all water.

Refirerator and freezer not holding temperature

I have very close clearance to a facing island counter, so I removed the door handles using a small allen wrench. I moved the unit out from the cabentry and removed the six or so screws holding on the cover plate for the main circuit board. I labeled the several pin connectors to the board, and used pliers to gently remove them from the old board. The instructions that came with the replacement board discussed cutting wires depending on my specific unit, but it was clear I did not need to do that. I replaced the circuit board and replaced the cover plate. For good measure I vacuumed the dust from the heat exchanger. The repair worked very well as the unit cooled down from a freezer/refigerator temp of 14/40 to -1/35 in a matter of a few hours.

Removed control panel. Snapped out pretty easily. Removed flapper assembly (4 small screws). Replaced micro switch by prying it away from its holder (unsnaps easily). Disconnected the two wires leading to the micro switch and connected them to the new microswitch and reinstalled switch in reverse order. Cost of switch, approximately $13 including shipping. Saved a ton of money doing it myself.

Removed all parts necessary, solenoid, recess retainer, dispencer door recess crank, and assembly flapper. Hardest part was getting old highly rusted screws out so I could remove the necessary parts. I replaced all screws with stainless steal screws, so the next time they will come out easier. This is the second time i've had to replace the solenoid because of rusty solenoid plunger, very poor design, not to mention the couple times i've taken the solenoid out to clean off the rust, but eventually its stops working because of the excessive rust on the plunger.

After consulting and paying a repair person $50 to come out and attempt to fix the issue, I located this website and after reading some of the blogs decided to go ahead and purchase the entire ice bucket and auger assembly since it was actually less than a repair that couldn't be done. I wish I had seen this website first. I would have saved $50! It took 5 minutes and that included retrieving the package from your front porch, opening it up and replacing the old bucket with the new one. No tools are needed. No skill is needed! Don't waste your time or money trying to repair it or calling a repair person! Easy peasy!

Remove the ice bin from the freezer, and empty the ice from it. Remove two screws on each side of the bin to remove the bottom cover. Remove the screw from the ice door actuator shaft, then disengage it from the ice door. Turn over the bin, and using two flat-blade screw drivers, gently pry apart the tapered end of the bin, freeing the tabs. Pull out the assembly, take note of the ice crushing assembly, remove the broken plastic cup, and replace with the new part. Place the cup-end of the auger in to the bin, then snap the tapered end back in to the bin, taking care that the ice crushing mechanism is re-installed correctly. Reverse the disassembly instructions to assemble.

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!

Took out one hex screw, disconnect electric couplings, pulled original ice maker out and found that the water supply line to the ice maker was frozen solid as well as the shute cup. Used hair dryer to thaw out the line and the cup reinstaled old ice maker and it worked fine. Did not have to use the new part at all at this time. Am keeping new part for future use.

I especially appreciate the customer comments on how to complete this repair!
