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

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.
Upright refrigerator/freezer. Damage was on refrigerator side door- lower hinge. Removed everything from inside fridge door. Removed plastic protector plate on top of door hinge with phillips screwdriver. Pulled out top hinge and removed door. Undid two small screws holding bottom bearing hinge bracket. Took out chewed up old bearing hinge. Cleaned bracket of debris. Attached bracket with screws. Inserted new bearing hinge. Put door back on fridge, re-attached top hinge and protective cap. (Still trying not to cringe out of habit when opening the door)
Replaced the plastic/nylon piece on the door. First, I remove the door hinge cover by unscrewing the one bolt. Second, unbolted the two bolts that hold the door in place. Third, lifted the door off the bottom hinge. Four, remove the bottom plate that is held in place by 3 screws. Five, using pliers move the old plastic piece from the bottom of the door. Six, press into place the replacement part. Seven, re-install the bottom plate. Eight, rehang the door on the bottom hinge. Nine, restall the top hinge and rebolt the two bolts that hold the hinge in place. Ten, reinstall the top cover. Finished.

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.
First I looked up and called Fridgedaire. They were absolutely no help at all. No diagrams and no intelligent help.When I found your site there was an IPB (Illustrated Parts Breakdown) diagram that helped me find the parts that I suspected as being the problem. When I found them and added them to my cart I found several comments from people who had the same problem and the same remedy to the problem. I ordered the parts, I could have got away with just replacing the door closure bearing, but I figured that the prudent thing to do while ordering parts and disassembling the door was to replace both. I was extremley pleased with the parts service as within three days of ordering the parts they were at my home and the repair was completed.The repair was very easy. Removed the items from the door storage, removed the upper hinge pulled the door, removed the door stop, replaced the door closure bearing reinstalled the pieces and then reinstalled the door. Piece of cake. Spent more time getting the tools together and emptying the items stored on the door then replacing the parts.
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.
Emptied the shelves off door and pulled door off fridge swet on counter and took out old plug and put new one on.
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.

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
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.
