I followed the instructions on a posted desctiption. It workded perfectly. Replacing the inner door panel was not as difficult as described. Just start the process with the screws in the middle of the door. Those two screw holes were not slots. All of the remaining screw holes had slots. I installed all of the door screws before tightening any. I workded right the first time.
removed the control panel ,using a paper clip, removed five screws, disconected wire connector, and removed the solenoid. reversed procedure to reassemble. ordered the part one day and received it the next day. Thank you for the prompt response.

Fairly simple fix. You must first uplug refrigerator, then take off the inside freeze door panel, approx. 25 screws. Then you must take out the trap door assembly approx. 6 six screws. Pop off the LED panel, requires the use of a flat blade screw driver to pop it off. Remove solenold by removing 3 screws, replace with new solenold.
Followed the on line video. Clear, concise & easy. Thanks.
I followed the video provided, and followed the advice of bill from cleveland hts. ohio, and did not have to remove the trim to access everything. The video made it so simple, a monkey could have learned how in 5 minutes. Thank you very much for all the help on this website. I will recommend it to all.
Removed access panel on freezer door, removed circuit board, removed and replaced solenoid, reinstalled previously removed parts
It was actually very easy. You simply remove the display cover (you just want to be careful removing the display cover so as not to damage the lower part which secures it to the door), unplug the wires, remove the inner cover (4 screws) to gain access to the solenoid. Remove the 4 screws on the solenoid replace with the new one, put the inner cover back in with the 4 screws that were previously removed, plug the wires back in and then replace the display cover.
I never would have attempted the repair as all my research indicated that I would have to take the stainless steel door off to replace the ice maker solenoid that shuts the ice chute door. But on your site someone (bless them)wrote that you could get at the solenoid by popping off the electronic selector panel. They are on the underside of the dispenser and not at all visible. And your video helped too. Thanks.
I searched the site, found the part - solenoid, watched the "how to" video and the repair was a snap. Saved myself tons of money versus having a repair person come over. I do have an older model and needed to prop the front cover panel off with a screwdriver (just under the covering) saw this on a posting from another individual, thanks for the heads up.
no instructions came with the part so I wrote for help from your techs. They were able to tell me how to access the solenoid. From there I was able to figure the rest out. I had to remove the trim, electrical board, flap, springs and arm to reach the screws necessary to remove the solenoid. I removed some of the corrosion with a baking soda paste so I could remove the screws. I carefully noted each step and position of the parts I removed and reversed the process to put things back after replacing the solenoid.
This time I did not make repair. I have purchased only to have spare parts. I have changed this parts recentely and I think this parts are not strong enough to work more than two or three years.
I followed the instructions posted by previous custmers and they were accurate and simple
