Frost accumulating above ice chute in freezer

Using a small phillips I removed the plastic module containing the ice/water selection buttons by sequentially inserting the screwdriver into 3 holes just underneath the module in the chute opening and pushing up on the tabs while pulling out on the module. Pulling the module away exposes 4 screws that are easily removed allowing you to remove the chute assembly. The solenoid is removed by removing 3 screws and pulling the clip containing the solenoid wires off the electronics board. Reverse the process to replace.

Ice flap would not open

I was this close to calling a repair man when I stumbled upon this site. I would not have been able to attempt this relatively easy repair has I not seen the posts from people with the same problem. It was simple to pop off the cover and replace the selenoid using only about 8 screws total. Thanks to posts by other DIY'rs it was an easy job--this site is Great!

Ice dispenser flap would not close causing frosting up of ice tunnel

First I used an ice pick to punch the tabs under the control panel to remove the ice/water selector panel. Then I used a phillips screwdriver to remove the solenoid switch. Unplugged the switch and re-installed with new one I received in 2 days and shazaam it works like new.

Shoot on freezer wouldn't open to drop ice

First I unplug solenoid from board. I then removed 3 screws holding it in place. I removed bad solenoid (it was very apparent once I took it out). I placed the new solenoid in place, replaced the 3 screws and plug the cord into the circuit board. Success!

Frost build up in the ice chute

We removed the front panel by using a screwdriver underneath the panel to push three little tabs up to unlock the panel. Next we removed the mother board. Removed the old solenoid and put the new one on. It was very easy. We cleaned all he parts that were covered with mildew (yuck) and reassembeled all the parts. Very glad we found this source to do it ourselves. Will order more parts if needed from PartSelect.com

Flapper is stuck open

There are three holes under the front panel in which you push a very small screwdriver in and the front panel comes off.In back of the panel is another panel with 4 screws .1 at each corner.Remove the 4 screws and that will come off exposing the working parts that need to be replaced.This is also a good time to clean anything you can get to in that area.It is very important to remember how everything came out.
