Watched video, however could not get outer casing off. Under the panel are three small holes, pushed up with an Allen key, used a small screwdriver to wedge out, came out easily, followed instructions from video on removing and replacing solenoid
Removed panel from front of freezer door by pushing up on three spring loaded screws located in the opening where the ice door opens and closes. they are about 1 inch apart on the bottom of the opening. Push up to free ice maker panel. Remove three screws from solenoid, located at the top right. Remove wire, replace with new and that is it. Fixed the problem!! Our ice maker hadn't worked for months. Be careful if you remove the round ice maker door to clean. There is a spring that located on the left side of sprocket. The spring fell off and took me a while to figure where it came from. Recieved package in three days and the job took minutes. Works great! Very easy to complete.
Removed front panel (using small screw driver) by popping it out, disconnected wire from solenoid, removed solenoid which was rusted, 3 small philip head screws held it in place insereted new solenoid,connected wire snapped front panel back in. Clapper valve closes tightly and no frost in frezzer, saved my self a bunch of money.
I removed the outer plate by sticking a very small screwdriver in the small holes at the bottom of the plate and pulling the plate toward me.I then removed the 4 screws from the internal plate and pulled the plate toward me.Then I romoved the 3 screws holding the old solenoid and unplugged it.Next I put the new solenoid in place and replaced the three screws.Finally I plugged in the solenoid and replaced the internal and external plates.
several times I had to remove the ice maker door solenoid due to it sticking. I ordered a new one from parts select. Problem solved!!!
I ordered the parts to repair my two drawers in the refridgerator. MY daughter climbed on them to reach the top shelf. While I was ordering the parts for the drawers, I thought I would find out if I could fix the ice and water dispenser. I looked up the model number and found the parts I thought would fix it...I read other customers repairs and figured it was the mother board. I ordered it on Thursday night, received it on Saturday and fixed it less than ten minutes. The video repairman was so helpful, I watched it a couple of times and felt confident to do the repair. My son was very proud of his mom...now we have ice, water and drawers that open and close......
Your video shows how to make the necessary repairs. Solenoid was the main issue, other parts were replaced to bring assembly to "like new" condition. Over kill but thats how I fix things. All and all a very easy fix. Thanks for the info and parts.
remove the front plate. use screwdriver to pry the cover off from the bottom of the cover, remove the wiring from the front cover.remove the 4 screws and pull out the shute. remove three screws from the solonide and replace . very easy fix. save yourself $100.00 labor.
Following the advice of others on this site, I popped out the control panel by pushing up through the 2 outer-most holes on the under-side of the panel (the middle hole is unused). I installed the new solenoid exactly as shown in the PartSelect video. The new crank, spring, and flapper installed easily as well; I did apply a little grease to the hinge points on the crank to ensure no binding. I also installed a new microswitch. The wires are best removed from the old switch with a needlenose pliers. The old switch looked like it had some grease on the switch (where it makes contact with the cup lever) so I put some grease on the new switch as well. All-in-all, very easy and the frig works like new. It's nice to hear the flapper slam shut 4 seconds after dispensing ice.
Water line 5/16inch was severed, under refrigerator. Used union connector to join line. Dispenser plate removed using allen key to unsnap plate ,from under the plate itself. Removed screws holding solenoid valve and removed the plug from circuit board connected to solenoid. Installed new solenoid valve. Put flapper back in place, and made sure spring on left side of flapper is reattached to the opening on the flapper. This corrected all problems. Caution, keep an eye on spring that it remains in place.
This GE fridge came with our new cottage. It was built in 2002. I noticed the ice maker door was not shutting properly. I took the door apart and found the solenoid 'push arm' was rusted in-place. I found parts select on line and was impressed how easily it was to find the parts I needed on the schmatic drawings. The parts arrived within a few days. It took about 15 minutes to reassemble. The fridge looks and works like new! Thank you!
Changing out solenoid was very easy, but you don't have to remove trim ring and it didn't fix my problem. Turns out a relay fell out of its holder in the piece you have after removing the 4 screws per the video.
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.
I replaced the original solenoid, which had rusted into one solid piece. OMG how easy was that!
