Ice dispenser door not closing after dispensing ice

First remove trim surrounding ice/water dispenser assembly. Use a flat spackle knife to obtain space between door and trim. Be careful not t scratch refrigerator door. Then pry trim off. This was the most difficult part of repair. The front plate of the dispenser is held to the back of the dispenser by two friction fastners and in the case of my refrigerator a phillips screw (some don't have screw in middle). Use a small round tool like an allen wrench to push up on the 2 fastners to release them. Next push the front assembley aside and remove the 4 screws holding the back part of the dispenser. Push that assembly aside. Remove the defective solenoid assembly by removing the 3 mounting screws. The solenoid base can be worked out by slipping it out of the solenoid assembly plunger still attached to the dispenser door assembly. Next slide the plunger off of the dispenser door assembly. Install new solenoid assembly by reversing this procedure.
Hint - I found the ice door assembly (wr17x11653) also needed replacement and it is well worth the effort to replace both at the same time.

The ice dispenser tube in the door would accumulate ice

We followed the instructions we found on this site.

First we unplugged the refrigerator.

Then we removed the control panel that has the ice type selection on it by releasing the three spring latches. These are accessible from the bottom of the panel looking up toward the ice dispenser. There are three holes. Press a narrow screwdriver or punch in each of these holes and then pull out the control panel. (Be careful not to disconnect the wires, but observe how the wires are routed.)

Then we removed the ice tube cover that covers the solenoid assembly. There were four screws. One was very rusty and it required some WD40 to loosen it. Once the cover was removed the solenoid was visible on the right. (It has a floating component that attaches to the "arm" of the flap. This is how the solenoid opens and closes the flap. The flap needs to close properly so ice does not build up in the door.)

There were three screws that had to be removed to get the solenoid out. (The top one you may just need to loosen once the bottom two are removed.) When the solenoid was removed we also removed the old floating component from the flap are and replace it with the new one. We slid this into the solenoid hole and then screw it in with the three screws.

Before we attached everything, we plugged in the refrigerator to test the solenoid. We dispensed some ice and waited to hear the flap close. (The flap close is slightly delayed so be patient.)

We attached the cover that was over the solenoid being careful to route the wires as they were when we started. We test the solenoid again. Then we snapped the control panel back into place and tested again.

We found that having the right size screwdriver made a difference especially dealing with rusty screws. It was also handy to have a good flashlight. Having extra hands was helpful to hold the control panel and cover while working on the solenoid and routing the wires.

Sticky ice maker chute door

The model we have, the front panel snaps into place. It was removed for access and the electrical connectors unplugged. Four screws and the chute assembly was removed. Removing three screws and opening the chute door allowed the solenoid assembly to be removed without removing the door assembly. All parts and area were cleaned and the assemmbly was the process in reverse.
Guideline to prolong recurrance: always put ice into glass first to reduce splashing of ice falling into liquids causing the solenoid armature to rust and stick.

Icemaker door wouldn't close properly

Removed front panel and control touch pad to access solenoid and door recess assembly.
Replaced solenoid and door recess assembly. Didn't need spring and crank door.
Wish you could have supplied new screws, as the original are very corroded and I can't find them atv any hardware store.

Thanks

Ice chute door not closing

I read instructions in all of the other repair stories everything went smooth no problems. Went and examined freezer door too see which type of door I had front or rear access. Popped off front LED panel, unpluged wires, removed 4 screws holding ice chute, removed 3 screws holding solenoid, slipped off solenoid pin, replaced all items in reverse order. This is one great site.

Evaporator coil in refrigerator was freezing up.

I removed the panel in the back of the freezer. You have to take out all of the shelves and remove four screws. Then I took out the two screws in the heater element and swapped out the old heater element with the new one. It was really easy and now I don't have to defrost my evaporator once a week with a hair dryer. If I had known it would be so easy to get the parts I would have done it as soon as the problem started.

Ice dispenser wouldn't work.

I watched the video and armed with that information and a few inexpensive parts replaced the defective solenoid, flapper and crank arm. I'm pretty handy and this was easy! I discovered quite a bit of mildew up and behind the panels and was able to clean those panels completely while they were removed. The screw heads were a little rusted so I made sure to use a new Phillips screw driver with the exact size tip and some moderate finesse to loosen or remove the screws. I will return to Parts Select in the future for any appliance repair parts. Thank you!

Corroded ice chute flap solenoid - replaced

Squeezed a flat blade screwdriver between the faceplate (buttons and lights) and the plastic part behind it and the front panel popped loose. I unscrewed the 4 cross-slotted screws on the panel behind the faceplate and could easily see the solenoid. I released the solenoid connector from the printed circuit board and removed its 3 screws. It slides out. Replace with new part in reverse.

Ice dispenser flapper would not close

I followed the instructions that were posted on the partselect website and the video tutorial. It really was as simple as everyone had commented. Like others have noted, once the small tabs on the bottom of the faceplate were released, the cover came right off. Unplug the wire connectors, don't force them off. Remove the four screws and voila, there's the whole system laid out in front of you. It took me longer to clean up all of the gunk that had built up over the years. Once the new part was installed, everything went back together veray easily. The machine works like new again. Thanks partselect, you saved me some serious $$$.

Ice maker dispenser chute frosting up

Before starting my repairs I checked for part suppliers online. Partselect was one of the first I saw. They also had instruction videos. After watching the video, I took apart the ice maker and found the solenoid had rusted. I replaced the solenoid and while everything was apart I replaced the crank, spring and the flapper. The entire process only took about 20 minutes and that was only because of their informative videos.

Ice dispenser door does not close

Replace solenoid which controls the despenser door. It is usually rusted. The front panel snaps off easily. Then there are 4 screws for the panel. Once the panel is off, the solenoid is exposed. There are 3 screws for the solenoid. You may want to spray dw40 on the screws if they are also rusted. Make sure you turn fridge off before performing this repair.
