This is a control bracket for your refrigerator, and may also be known as the dispenser control bracket. The function of this part is to be used as a fastener to hold the micro switches and the light socket in the freezer dispenser section in place. Its measurements are roughly 9 inches long and 5 inches high, and this model comes in white. The tools you will need in order to make this installation include a Phillips screw driver, a quarter-inch nut-driver, and a pair of needle-nose pliers. If your ice dispenser is not working properly, your bracket could be the problem.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
I watched the video this site has on their website and I did exactly as the instructor did. I had my ice maker fixed in less than 30 minutes. I had watched the video prior to receiving my parts so I already had the prep work done. I had the parts removed that needed removing and all I did was slide the new ones into place. Use the parts chart on this site to make sure you get the right parts and use the video to uninstall/install your parts. Do exactly like the instructor says and you won't have any problems. It was as my school kids say, "easy peasy". Thanks!!!

Thanks to the support on this site, I diagnosed and fixed the problem, saving at least $150 on a service call. The manufacturer's design of this Control Bracket is so cheap. The small plastic "axel" holding the micro switch broke after about 7 years of use. It is made of thin plastic about the size of a toothpick. Gently pry off the front cover by inserting a screw driver in the slots at the bottom. Take your time and apply gentle pressure. The cover will pop out. Next, take off the micro switches and spacers connected to the old Control bracket. You will probably see a broken plastic shaft/axel that was causing the problem. Pay attention to where the parts come from, because the will need to go back in the same place on the new bracket. It would be helpful to have 3 hands for this job, but I got it done by being patient and taking my time. This site is a fantastic resource. Thanks!
This was easy. I have a built in refrigerator/freezer.1) Remove the door handle using a phillips screwdriver.2) Bend the plastic cover plate gently and slide it out3) Remove 2 screws holding on the white plastic control bracket4) Remove the old wires from their mounting positions in the old control bracket.5) Put the wires back in the same spot on the new control bracket6) Mount the new control bracket (2 screws)7) Gently bend and reinsert the plastic cover8) Screw the door handle back on.
Popped fromt pannel off from bottom side removed 2 screws from control bracket and took switches etc. off old bracket. removed broken water tube and cut top off. Secured black tubing together and pulled down through door fastened into exixting fitting repolaced one screw. placed switches onto new control bracket and okaced back with 2 screws. Snappec ice guide in place then replaced cover into notches in top and snapped into place. incerted 2 new door handle trim clips into trim and slid into place,,,,finished
Removed the front cover, not easy, I was worried it was going to break but it did pop off. Be sure to locate the two notches on the bottom so your pulling in the correct location. Unplugged the wire harness from the front cover and control panel, there is a locking tab on one side that must be released to unplug. Removed two screws that hold the control bracket, slide it out and remove the micro switches and lamp holder. Unplug the wires from the micro switches, it is easier to do when they are not in the control bracket. Attach the wires to the new micro switches, I replaced both since it was apart. Install the spacers for the switches and then slide on each switch. Make sure they are locked into the notch on the two support pins for each switch. Snap in the lamp holder and check the wiring routes so nothing is pinched. Attach the control bracket and plug the front panel into the control bracket plug and then test the water and ice. If they both work you've done a good job. The new control panel has a place to slide the wiring connection in so it stays in place. Do it now and snap the cover back on. I had to hit the bottom corners pretty hard to get it to snap in but once it is in place it is solid. It took about 30 minutes but I had taken this apart before when I discovered the holders for the water micro switch were broken so that made it much easier the second time around. The new bracket and holders seem to be made better. The new drip tray is also much better and fits much better two. Good luck, don't be in a hurry.
I have wood panels so I had to bend the plastic faceplate alot to remove. It is more flexible than I thought, and I had no instruction in this regard, and people should know this. As you folks indicated to an 80% degree of certainty it was a broken control bracket, which was easy to replace. I replaced the micro switch, easy, anyway, and kept the old one as a backup for short $ - less than $10. You folks were perfect and exact!!! Burner switch was easy and didn't even need replacement after all; burner was working ok after all. You're great!
First I removed the face plate from the dispenser, then removed two screws holding the bracket in place. All of the wiring was held in place and I did not have to remove any of the switches from the wires. I then removed the stationary switch from the ice side and removed the entire bracket. I then put the new bracket in place and installed the switches and wiring harness. It took less than 10 minutes to install.
Unplug electric or you will get wet and possible shockRemoved front cover from the bottom first.(probaly the hardest part of fix),Then removed screws,unplugged electricle wires and light and replaced broken part and replugged wires, light and screws.Snapped on cover and it could not have been easier.Saved$$$$ thanks
I removed the metal strip on the side of the freezer door then slid out the wood panels. removing one Z bar allowed the plastic cover panel to come off without bending the plastic. Then just replace the control bracket by removing two screws and installing the micro switches as before. The small plastic "fingers" break after use and you replace the entire plastic bracket. Very easy ...
IAfter not getting water from dispenser, I took the escutcheon plate off and discovered that several of the plastic pins from the control box were broken off. I put back together to continue using ice dispenser, I ordered part from this site , upon arrival of control box I watched the t video and read everybody's post. Don't worry about all those wires at the top as they are all color coded. Took about 30 min. from start to finish, all is working great. Thanks
The plastics on the control bracket that holds the micro switch broke. To repair you remove the control panel (disconnect wire harness). Take a picture for reference, remove water and ice mirco switches and spacers and then remove old control bracket by releasing two plastic connectors on each side. Install new control bracket, install spacers and micro switches. Reconnect wire harness and snap control panel in place.
Pretty much followed the instructions in the video. Under my drip tray were no screws to release the escutcheon from the door so I had to pry mine off. Used plastic trim prying tool for automotive interior trim to pry it away at the bottom. Pry one side first then the other. Apart from that the video was pretty good. I took the opportunity to take out the ice chute and flap from the door and clean that up good while waiting on the parts to arrive. As the symptom checker suggested my control bracket was broken where the water switch attaches to it.
I watched the repair vidio that your company has on the computer and it went real easy. I took off the control panel , disconneted the wires and the switches and the old bracket was ready to come off and I just reversed my actions and when I got done the water worked Praise the Lord.
First and foremost, unplug the refrigerator from the electrical outlet. Apply masking tape to a #2 flat-tip screwdriver. Then, insert the screwdriver tip into the slot located at the bottom-left of the dispensing bezel. Next, while pushing the bezel slightly upward, pry loose the left- side of the bezel ... you should hear a popping sound. Do the same to the bottom-right side. Once loose, disconnect the electrical connector to the bezel and set aside. Then, disconnect all the other electrical connectors from the Control Bracket. Remove the Control Bracket by removing the two (2) screws on either side of the bracket. Once removed, take out the light and insert it into the new bracket. Next, attach the bracket to the door using the 2 screws. Reconnect all connectors and reattached the electrical connector to the bezel. Reset the bezel by seating the bezel beginning at the top and, then, popping the bottom into place. Reconnect refrigerator and test the water dispenser; it should dispense water. At this point, you are done!
The repair was very easy. I just reviewed the video and replace the control bracket. the old bracket that held the switch in place, had the pins snap off. Fix the problem..........
