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.
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 ...
Removed the cover for the water/ice dispenser. Unhooked all cords. Took out the control bracket (it was a small piece of that, that had broken). Replaced it with the new one. Re hooked all the cords and replaced the cover for the water dispenser. It works great now!
Removed plastic outer trim and punch pad by pulling out at bottom of trim and lifting up to remove from panel. Unstapped wire harness and layed punch pad aside. Removed two screws holding control bracket in place. Removed light wire first, then light bracket with pliers from control bracket. Removed two micro switches from old bracket and re-installed on new bracket. Re-installed light bracket and light wire to new control bracket. Place control bracket back in place with two screws. Plug wire harness back togather and re-snapped plastric trim and punch pad back in place. Job Complete
it wazs a simple disasembly and reasembly and really shocked me how frast it went all plug and play .
it took me longer to correct the problem because i started to troubleshoot inside the freezer.checked the door switch ,solenoid and gear motor.they all were good ,than i went to control panel on the front door. removed front cover and found broken pins on the control bracket. ordered a new control bracket , installed a new bracket and the ice dispenser is working again. to install a new bracket it took me 15 minutes
I pulled the cover off the icemaker and water dispenser in the front door. Unplugged the wires, pulled out the old control bracket, put the new one in, reconnected the wires, put the cover back on. Everything works fine now. All it was was a broken piece of plastic that would not trigger the switch to run the ice dispenser.
Replaced the entire part which dispenses water and ice. Good as new. Cost to repair it ourselves less than $20 for postage and part. Sure beats the $85 service charge with an additional charge for the part needed, the repairman wanted to come out and fix it.
Removed front plate of fridge, Disconnected wire harness and slid bracket out. replaced bracket and connected everything and put back plate water worked immediatley.
The control bracket that holds the switches to dispense the water and ice broke. I live in Florida I can't live without the ice dispenser and filtered water. I was informed by Whirlpool that they did not sell the idividual parts and that I would need to buy a new door for $700. Fustrated I searched the internet and PartSelect had exactly what I needed and $22 later I had my water and ice back. Simple to install less than 10 minutes, excelent schematics. The part was delivered within 1 day, I wish I knew about PartSelect earlier I would have never gone thru the aggravation of 5 days without ice and water.
