I removed the front panel from water dispensor placing a very small screwdriver in the three small holes under the panel. It came free and then I was able to get to the solenoid and switch easily. However, my problem was not solved. It turned out to be the secondary water valve in the back of the unit, which is also an easy repair. The problem with repairs like this is you don't know if you're buying the right part until after you have installed it. Returning the parts are easy except for electrical parts which they won't take back once unstalled. All the parts were delivered the next day, although it said 3 to 5 business days.

Ice was freezing in clumps in the shute(in door itself) and prohibiting the flapper from closing. Warm air enters from the kitchen through this opening and melts/freezes the cubes in shute into a clump.

1-Duct taped around the rectangular grid on the face of the door.2-Usinng a putty knife I removed the frame(just held with small plastic grommits3-The front panel with buttons for water/ice etc---push up and remove.4-Did not unplug the refrigerator until after this item was lifted up and I duct taped it to the refrigerator door to keep it out of the way.5-Once taped out of the way I unplugged from electrical.(***there was no need to unclip the small connectors to this panel----less likely to break the prongs if the above is followed)6-2-3 screws removed the solenoid which in my case was my problem(((Solenoid was completely destroyed by the amount of rust that it exhibited. ******If you have to replace flapper and or it and the spring-----this doesn't look very difficult either. Just keep the doors shut while electric out. I'm handy but not an expert on anything---doing it was easier than what I expected. Should take no more than 1-2 hours

I called Parts Express, and explained my problem. The representative, She asked if I was getting water in the tray, and I was not. She said that if I wasn't getting water there, then my problem was probably the Dual Inlet Water Valve. I poured some water directly into the tray, and the ice maker made a tray of ice, and dumped it in less than an hour. So, I then ordered the Dual inlet water Valve. My ice maker is working perfect, and I am getting better water pressure from my water dispenser as well. Thank you for your assistance.

Instructions and photos with new pan kit inadequate. You need to remove both bottom drawers and tray to provide clear access to bottom drawer slides. After removing drawers, pull out on bottom drawer slides to their maximum extension. Using star screwdriver or star socket wrench set remove 3 screws each on both sides. Total of 6 screws. Once removed discard old slides but retain the white plastic spacers and 3 screws on each side they are attached to. You may have to pull gently to remove the ball bearing slides from the white spacers on each side. Discard the old ball bearing slides, cage and bottom drawer. Attach new slides to old spacers and wall of refrigerator with 3 screws just removed from old slides. Make sure the two locking tabs on new left slide point to left wall of refrigerator and right tabs to right wall. Tighten screws but do not over tighten them. After installing both slides to wall place drawer on top of slides and turn the locking tabs to secure and lock bottom drawer in place. Replace upper tray and drawer.

Refrigerator to cold - freezes food

I tried the sensor first since it cost a lot less and that did not fix my problem. The removal and installation basically the same as video on my model with the exception of where it is. Mine was on the side wall under a small grill that pops off with a slight downward /outward pressure using a small common screwdriver and then just splice in new sensor. The Air inlet cover /dampener did fix the problem. This again was really straight forward and like other post comes out fairly easy. Remove the top 2 shelves and the light cover. It is held on by 4 screws two on the back wall under the vent like cover that pops off. The top of it snaps into the air grill and once off remove two screws and disconnect the electrical connector. The other two screws are on rear of light assy. Then remove the water filter cover by squeezing sides in and put outward. Now the air inlet can be removed . Installation is just reverse.

the old dual inlet water valve was 2 years old and stop despense water. this is not the fist time that i changed the valve so i know when the frigerator is not despense water it s time to change the valve. and its simple shut off water supple to frigertor, pull the electrical plug. remove all the screws from back of back panel, the dual inlet valve is located at the bottom left side remove the inlet water supple line, unscrew the bolt holding the valve in place disconnect the two electrical connection from valve and remove the two water lines(one black and the other white) these two water lines have a push in fitting just push in each line at same time hold in the white collar while pull out the water line. with the new valve install both water lines by pushing them in the black line is larger in diameter that goes into the larger valve connector and the white goes into the smaller diameter connector. then connect to electrical connector these can not be mixed up because the red excepts the larger terminals and the white connects to the smaller connectors. place the dual inlet into a manufacture whole and bolt it back onto the frame of frigertor, connect to water line onto the valve, turn on water supply, check for water leaks. if all looks ok replace back panel, plug in electrical cord. your ready to go.

Removed the interior shelves and set screw which holds the light cover in place. Next I removed the four screws that hold the back panel in place. Located the defrost thermostat and removed it from the aluminum tubing by unclipping it, just as it was illustrated in the repair video. Cut the wires and stripped the ends and then connected them to the ends of the new defrost thermostat. Connected them together with an 16-14 gauge crimp style end cap. Taped the entry point into the end cap to reduce moisture penetration. Reassembled the back panel, light cover and shelves.

The helix is like a propeller and min had a blade broken off.

I followed a set of instructions that were already posted by someone else. Take pictures to help you reassemble everything properly. The helix is held on by a plastic nut which has a left-handed thread. That nut is round (no flats for a wrench) and it would have required a special tool but I wrapped the thick rubber band around it and used the pliers to remove it without damaging it. The whole job took less than a half hour.

Ice dispenser door not closing. Two possible fixes

Watched the videos for replacing both the solenoid and the ice door flapper. Ordered the parts, watched the videos again and changed out the parts. I used a Philips head screwdriver and a little WD40 to clean up some rust. The instructions in the video were very easy to follow and simplified the process. PartsSelect's video showed the demonstration on a refer like mine as opposed to another site, which helped me be familiar whenI opened it up.
