The ice dispenser would only dispense crushed ice, fridge door cluncked when opening and closing

For the ice dispenser, I read a blog that pointed me right to the solenoid that controls the linkage for the crushed /cubed ice.I first unplugged the fridge. Then removed the ice maker basket. Removed 2 ea screws from each side of the supports of the lower brackets. Then lifted the tray assy off the mounting bracket, moving the front of the bracket down you can then unhook the power/control connector.
The tray then comes right out. Once out you remove two screws that hold a plastic plate on. With this removed you can see the solenoid that actuates the linkage for the ice cube and crushed ice. You then remove 2 ea machine screws that hold the solenoid in. Remove grd. wire. and pull power wires off tabs. You can then remove the solenoid by sliding it out of the plastic retainer. With it out you install the new plunger and reassemble in the reverse order. 15 mins tops.

The main Refidgerator door, made a cluncking sound. Lube didn't help. I removed the door by removing the top screw from the plastic cover, then slide it forward, then remove the two screws that hold the hinge on and then lifting the door off, once off the lower nylon hinge bearing comes right out of the door, the plate is removed with a screw driver. Installed in reverse order and cluncking was gone. 10 mins

Nylon door hinge bearing on the bottom of refrigerator door broke

First I removed the contents from the door. Second, I removed the exposed bolt on the top hinge(per the manual instructions) and then I removed the plastic hinge cover. Up next was to remove the remaining two bolts from the top hinge. I should, at this point, say it is much easier to have someone help steady the door for you so it doesn't fall off the refrigerator. Now remove the door and the old nylon bearing. Replace with the new bearing and replace the door. This repair couldn't have been easier.

CustomerWeston from Anchorage AK

There was a horrendous popping noise when I opened the refrigerator door.

First I cleaned out the side door then, removed the three screws on top of the door. Lifted the door off and set it carefully on a kitchen mat.

I had to use the pliers to remove the existing bearing hinge as it had disintegrated in the door. Once it was out the new hinge slid right into place and I reinstalled the door. I had help with the door. It’s much easier with two people to get proper alignment and to hold it in place while you reattach the screws.

I would have to say the hardest part of this repair was cleaning out the refrigerator.

Fridge door difficult to open and close. Scraped on bottom.

Read the previous instructions given by other responders, they're spot on. But, in short. . .
Remove all food items from the inside of the door.

Remove Phillips head screw holding top hinge cover, remove cover.

Remove top hinge bolts, making sure not to let the door fall.

Lift door off of bottom hinge.

Dig-out broken bearing.

Install new bearing.

Re-assemble door in reverse order.

**Removing the broken bearing piece turned-out to be the most time consuming part of the job. Incredibly easy fix.

Hinge bearing shattered, and door shelf broke

Removed the top hinge from the door, removed the door, removed the doorstop and remains of the old bearing, and then replaced the items with the new ones in the reverse order. The screw I purchased was not needed.

The shelf had been broken for a while, and just needed to be slipped into the existing slots on the door

CustomerDaniel from Drums PA

Opening the refrigerator door past half caused a loud thump.

Before removing door, remove everything from on the door including the shelves, then close the door. Using a step ladder to access the top of the door, I removed the plastic hinge cover at the top of the refrigerator door using a Philips head screwdriver, remove the screw located at the back of the cover and slide the cover forward and up to remove. This will expose the two 3/8 machine screws that hold the top hinge bracket. Remove the screws using a socket or wrench. Then lift up on the hinge bracket from the top of the door to remove it. As long as the door is closed it will remain stable with little pressure to keep from falling. Then lift the entire door from the bottom hinge assembly and lay it across an arm chair or flat elevated surface so you can access the bottom door hinge bearing. You will see a bracket screwed to the bottom of the door with two 1/4 machine screws, it is the door stop bracket and this has the door hinge bearing inserted through it. My bearing was broke in half , the first piece fell out when I removed the door and the other piece was still inserted in the door. I removed one 1/4 screw from the stop bracket and loosened the other screw to allow the bracket to swing away from cavity that holds the bearing. Using needle nose pliers I remover the broken piece of the bearing. This part is nylon or plastic and can be cut into pieces if need be to remove it. Once removed, I cleaned the cavity, reinstalled the stop bracket assembly then inserted the new bearing. Gently align the door to the bottom bracket and set it in place, a second set of eyes may help. Once the door has been seated and in the closed position replace door bracket and the two 3/8 screws at the top of the door, check the alignment before you tighten. Check door operation! Then tighten the screws and replace the plastic cover by pressing down on the cover and sliding it back to align the Philips screw to be replaced .

CustomerRoland from Albuquerque NM

Door had a "hitch" which made a sound when the door was opened.

I emptied the door of food, removed the top hinge by removing two screws. I then lifted the door off the lower hinge. The teflon hinge was just sitting in the bottom bearing. I removed the broken one and replaced it with the new bearing hinge. I didn't need the door stop. I then put the door back on the bottom bearing hinge and returned the top hinge. After replacing the food, the job was done and the "catch" and noise were gone! Success!

CustomerKen from Diamond springs CA

Ice actuator broken, door closing cam, door closure/hinge bearing

Unplug refrigerator. Take out spill tray by sliding out. remove bottom 3 screws, gently but firmly push up and against refrigerator(Top section of cover snaps in by pulling cover down while holding cover against refrigerator). There is a ribbon wire connecting the two boards, care not to tear it out of connectors. There are two tabs on the plastic connector holding the ribbon wire to the outside board,pull the tabs out a little and gently pull the ribbon loose, carefully. There are 3 screws holding in the back board, remove them, them remove water hose from water actuator so the assembly can come out. Gently spread the plastic holder to be able to take the broken paddle out. Watch closely how the third arm on the actuator(Lower left arm)is resting on the back of the flapper.Replace the Actuator exactly the same. Just reverse the steps to install the rest of the parts.(Had a time getting the water hose back into it place. I used pliers to push and wiggle it back into it opening).Don't forget to plug the frig back in again. DOOR CLOSING CAM AND HINGE BEARING ARE VERY EASY. It take about 10 to 15 minutes to do. Empty door drawers before procedure the screw holding the plastic cover, remove cover. I used a 3/8" nut driver and my cordless drill to take out the two lag bolts holding the top hinge.Lift door off bottom hinge. Replace Door Closure/Hinge Bearing. Reverse procedure to finish installation.
