Based on customer recommendations on partselect, I ordered the complete bucket and auger system rather than replacing just the broken cup. Simply removed the old bucket and slid the new bucket into place. That was it. Problem solved.

The Ice flapper was warped therefore, it was not closing well. Because of this, the ice dispenser got air in it and the ice cubes would deice causing to make a chunk of ice inside.I went on line, order the part ($5.75 + tax= $12.00) checked Part Select video and did it myself. It really is as seen on the video. It took me less than 10 minutes! I saved $200.00

Ice Dispenser door would not close after use

I followed the directional video on "PartSelect" website. The video was very easy to follow and showed exactly how to easily replace the dispenser door solenoid assembly. I knew it was the solonoid assembly because the I could see the plunger that controls the opening/closing motion of the dispenser door sticking inside the old solenoid. The "PartSelect" website is very user friendly and very easy to use. The part ordered, delivered by standard delivery, arrived the day after it was ordered. I only wish all repairs could be as straight forward and easy as this one, thanks to "PartSelect" and some limited mechanical/electrical knowledge on my part. This was absolutely a "do it yourself" repair at a very significant savings over using an appliance repair service.

I simply replaced the motherboard which was very simple and straight forward. No I do have an engineering background and understand the importance of RTFM..... That being said I spent more time cleaning the floor under the refer than replacing the MB. Great success and will certainly order again if and when the time calls.

Unit making surging noises and water/ice dispenser not working

  • Customer: David from Sackets Harbor, NY
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

The repair video was great, made the repairs very easy. Once the old main electrical control board was changed out, the unit started to work good. I also vacuumed the back of the unit where dust had built up around critical air flow areas. I am still having trouble with the filtered water not working. I was thinking the trouble might be the water flow check valve. The cubed ice and crushed ice both work great. The freezer is set on 1 and the refrigerator on the 2 setting. I have found where the water spout comes out of the door, if the ice flapper door does not seal properly, the water freezes at the curve of the water spout. I open the freezer door for 10 or so minuets and that's enough to thaw the spout for use. The cost to do the repairs myself was $160. I saved hundreds of dollars. Thanks PartSelect. Dave,

flapper was locking open periodically.

Replaced flapper, which was in surprisingly good condition. Major part of repair was removing a lot of mold incurred from long term seepage of room air into the ice channel. In the process of the repair, I discovered that the solenoid to the right of the flapper was hanging up badly. I removed it and cleaned both the plunger and the interior cone of the solenoid with alcohol. This removed quite a bit of rust and some mold. Reinstalled solenoid, replaced flapper and it works just fine. May need to replace solenoid if problem recurs. Certainly worth $37.00!

Ice dispenser door not closing due to corroded solenoid

Followed instructions from Parts Select Videos about how to replace solenoid & dispense door/flapper. Only a couple of changes from the video with this model: 1) You can remove the control panel by pushing on 2 tabs located under panel and in front of dispense chute with 2 small screwdrivers, and you do not need to remove the black trim around the dispenser. 2) It would be great if each part, especially the solenoid, included replacement screws since mine were corroded and not easily found at the local hardware store. I would definitely pay a couple of $ extra to add screws to the order, or just have them included in the package with the solenoid.

Following the lead of other posted on this site, I removed the old air inlet cover after emptying the refrigerator. (That took the most time) 1. It's easiest if you remove all the shelves. 2. To access the upper two screws remove the top light cover - it has press in holders on each side. 3. As mentioned in other posts, there are four screws holding the Inlet Cover in place, 2 lower and 2 upper. 4. To get access to the lower two screws,you simply pop off the lower duct assembly. Take out the screws and remove the air duct. Unplug the electrical connector. 5. I had to use the added insulation spacer to seal the unit into the cold air opening. 6. Plug the new air inlet cover unit in and put back in place. 7. Install screws, put lower duct back in, and put light cover back in place. 8. Since shelves were all out, it was easy to give them a good cleaning and put they whole thing back together. 9. Relax and have a cold beverage of your choice. (I took old air inlet apart and lo and behold, the damper door was broken off. Problem solved.

Wasn't really a repair. I removed the old ice bucket and auger assembly, poured the ice in the new bucket (after washing of course) and inserted the new bucket. The new bucket and auger worked flawlessly.
