GE in my opinion made a poor design the ice shelf bracket attached to the metal fan cover after metal tab was bent down that is also where it broke it was riveted to this but the metal broke freeSo i purchased a piece of aluminium flat strap cut this about 1" long then riveted this to the shelf bracket and pushed this through the metal fan cover and let rest there and put screw in at other end. Also purchased alum angle also to remake ice shelf when complete then i will use it as ice bucket shelf instead of plastic one.
Removed the ice bucket and removed the screw at the rear of the broken shelf. The front hole had a pop rivet in it, so I got a small angle motor with a 5/32 drill in it and drilled the center of the rivet out then removed the rivet. Replaced the shelf and screwed the rear screw in and replaced the front rivet with a #8 screw.
The ice bucket supports had split, and broken away from the refrigerator wall causing the ice dispenser bucket to sag, and bump and grind. The b&g wore away the ice screw support at the rear of the bucket, causing intermittent ice dispensing. The ice bucket was removed to allow access to the ice bucket supports. The supports were attached to the refrigerator by two screws. One along the front side, the other at the rear attached to a protruding tang. One of these broken off, the other was stuck, and had to be forced off its mount. The rear mount was expanded by drilling a slightly larger hole to accommodate a nut and bolt assembly. The new support units were re-attached to the refrigerator front and back using screws and the nut and bolt in the appropriate places. The ice bucket installation was a tad more difficult. The hardware from the original bucket was removed and installed on the replacement bucket. This proved to be a bit tricky remembering the exact location of the parts, and coordinating the screw mechanism with the driver mechanism. The ice fill starter switch is a bit unusual in that it has to go into a slot that is not visible when inserting the ice dispenser bucket into the ice maker compartment. You have to finagle the bucket into place and get all the parts in the correct slots. It was a piece of cake for the average husband.
At the front of the shelf there is a Phillips metal sheet metal screw that holds the front of the shelf in place. Its removal was fairly set straight forward but removing the pop rivet was awkward and took some time to drill out from the rear metal shelf. Once the rivet was out, it was easy finding a small screw that would hold the shelf in place since I didn't have any pop rivets that would fit sufficiently tight or long enough.
Light shield easily installed with one screw. Can not istall the 2 ice bucket trays because the back attachment on each is a rivet.
Took out the ice bucket. Removed the broken rail and installed the new rail
