taking apart and putting new one on is very very easy but the magnet pin that open and shuts had to work with for a while i have big hands and small space but once put it together very easy assembly.
it looked like it wouild be a pretty quick job, so i didn't take any chances; i unplugged the fridge to avoid any chance of problems with circuit board behind front facing. removing "drip catcher" at base of opening reveals 2 torx screws (easily removed) and two more up near the chute opening and light bulb. front facing then easily lifts off. i found it easiest to unplug ribbon cable from the circuit board. The door itself is pretty self-explanitory as how to remove and replace. the trick was figuring out the correct position for the attaching solenoid. it's supposed to be in a "normally out" position under the attaching part of the door flap mechanism. and that was it. much easier than i expected. it took about 15 minutes.
First I removed the drip pan, then removed the two screws behind it which hold the frame. I then pushed up on the frame, the top of which is slotted to fit on two large-head screws. This allows the frame to be swung loose. I then disconnected the flat control cable, then removed two more screws. Replaced ice chute door, but repair didn't work. Repeated this several times. The problem was that I had not correctly affixed the part holding the door to the solonoid pin. The pin had dropped out, and I re-inserted it the wrong way. Be sure that the slotted end of the pin properly engages the chute door holder. This job would have taken much less time if I had more carefully examined the mechanism while disassembling it. Next time I repair something, I'll use a digital camera to snap a few pictures as I disassemble the mechanism.
Removed two screws. Slid off cover. Removed a few more screws and easily accessed areas that needed repaired. Repair was very easy. We went for a year avoiding getting the actuator pad fixed for fear of repair cost. I will be buying parts through Partselect from now on!
Removed 5 screws, took unit apart, replaced part, put back together. Just be sure to have the solenoid connected to the ice door lever the right way before you reassemble.
I removed the ice door panel. I use a torque driver to remove the 3 screws holding it on. Quick change of the broken door flap and reassemble the unit. Very quick and easy job. Just be sure to replace the activation piston that opens the door back properly. Good luck with you repair.
Removed overfill tray by sliding out away from door, 2 screws underneath need to be removed and front of tray cover can be slid up and removed unplug 1 small cable if you want to set aside. 4 screws need to be removed to pull complete ice tray door assy. away from fridge door. Ice door can then be remove and new one slipped into solenoid jaws that hold it closed until activation.
Easy repair. Removed 5 screws, disconnected the curcuit board and slipped in the new door. Hardest part was fiddling it all back together after reconnecting the curcuit board. The cable is a little too short.
Parts arrived within a couple of days. Repair was easy using a torx driver. I removed the screws that held the cover onto the door and then a couple more once the cover was removed. Ice door snapped into place and reassembly was a simple reversal of the disassembly. Unit now works great. Parts were very reasonably priced and delivery was very timely.
Used your instructions . went very well about 10 min.
removed 4 screws and removed the unit from the DOor. replace the broken part. Then relace unit back into the door. Iwas very please how quick I received the part.
