Solenoid broken

Removed screws, removed parts, spring popped off, didn't know where it was actually at, had a difficult time getting the spring in the right place, (the directions were not that clear), put back together 6 times before I got it right.

Very loud solenoid

removed the panel to get to icemaker(4 screws), then removed the plug, then removed worn solenoid and replaced with
new one. Had to jiggle old solenoid to get out,
but not with much effort. Everything went back
into place effortlessly

Ice and water dispenser would not work

Removed 4 screws and disconnect the circuit board, replaced the broken door and reassembled the unit. Solenoid did not need to be replaced, only the ice door. About 15 minutes and about 90$ saved in labor.

Ice dispenser door broken

I removed the two screws from the front door panel, unhooked the wire, removed three more screws and removed the broken door. I replaced the door and replaced everything in reversed order. I did not need to replace the solenoid so I still have that if needed in the future, The instructions were so easy, it took less than 5 minutes and I estimate saving about $90.00 on a sevice call after deducting the cost of the part from PartSelect.
I will check out PartSelect for future repair jobs.

Thanks

Ice door broke and failed repeatedly

The Refrigerator had panels of wood, they had to be removed above the Ice maker face plate before it could be lifted off. There were several layers of Torx screws to be taken off., had to purchase that tool. Luckily they were all T-15 and I guessed right at the hardware store. The rest of the repair went pretty as indicated on the sheet provided.

Leaking icemaker and dispenser

First I removed the 4 Screws that held the dispenser in place and after removing it , it was a breeze to put back, just be sure to get the spring back in place and tight to hold the door in place. The icemaker was not much harder other than after removing the one screw and the end cap, it was a little difficult to get off the bracket , but managed to free it , other than that it was ok to remove and replace. All in all this went really easy , a lot better than I thought it would.

Door to ice dispenser was broken

First removed the grill from the fountain. Then removed the 2 screws, raised the escutcheon up and off the fountain assembly. Disconnected the power connection to the escutcheon and laid it aside. Removed the 3 screws holding the fountain assembly and disconnected the power supply from it. Removed the broken door pieces. Removed the 2 screws from the solenoid and replaced with new one and replaced the screws. The instructions said to rotate the spring counter clockwise 1/2 turn but I had to rotate it a full turn (to make the door tight when it closed) and insert the end of the spring in the opening of the fountain bracket. Insert the solenoid plunger into the recess of the door strike (the diagram in the instructions helped because this was the part that was broken and I could not figure out where it went). Then I installed everything back the way I had taken it apart.
I am a 61 year old woman and pretty good at taking things apart and putting it back together. My husband usually lets me fix things because I have more patience than him.
I would like to thank parts select for their packaging of the parts and the included diagram.

Door wouldn't open to dispense ice cubes

Easy to follow directions. Got to the part where the old solenoid would be removed and found that one of the two wires the connected to the old solennoid had become disconnected. Reconnected and everything works. Will keep the kit now as backup and instructions in case I need to repair again. Very satisified.

Ice/water dispenser wouldn't work

The repair was really simple - I followed the directions provided. I removed the screws holding the cover in place - unplugged the wiring harness - removed the solenoid and replaced with the new solenoid and door amd reassembled the parts. I wasn't sure if the solenoid was bad since the door was actually broken. I was able to test just using the new door - then replace the solenoid. It was all done in less than 30 minutes. Directions provided were GREAT.

Ice would not dispense & at times would not stop dispensing.

First, I took everything apart and replaced only the ice door. Everything worked fine for about an hour and the door started opening and closing on its own. I took it apart again and replaced the whole kit including the solenoid. Everything was fine for less than an hour and then the door started opening and closing again. I took it apart and made sure everything was tightened carefully. Now it works perfectly.
