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.
Put in new hinges and two screws
Removed the door and installed ne bushing on bottom of hinge
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.

Then lifted off the door removed the bottom plate that is holding the plastic door holder. and replaced the broken part and replaced the bottom plate , set the door back on the hinge and installed the top two screws and the flange cover and the last screw holding the flange cover in place.

Removed the door marking the top hinge placement prior to removal. Pulled the door the rest of the way off. There wasn't anything keeping it attached on the bottom right side.

watched the video, ordered the part and handed it to my husband. He quickly removed the hinge cover and took it apart--the lower door bearing was tightened with glue which made it difficult but once that was out of the way, it was remove, assemble and back in business. Thanks for making it "do-able". C and D in New Mexico.
I cleaned out the refrig door, unbolted it from the top and removed the door. Then I replaced the broken plastic parts, reinstalled the door and bolted it back up. Very simple, very easy!
Exposed and removed the screws at the top of the door. Removed and replaced the bearing and plate on the bottom of door and put it back together. Honestly, this is the easiest repair I ever made. The biggest chore was removing the contents of the door before taking the door off. Also was working alone, an extra pair of hands to hold the door would have been helpful but not necessary. Be prepared to never hear that horrible clunk again!
When my parts arrived I took a screwdriver and removed the hinge cover on the top of the refrigerator door. I then took a 3/8 drive ratchet and a 3/8 socket and removed the 2 screws on top of the fridge that hold the door hinge on( be sure to empty your door before you take the bolts out). I lifted the door out and layed it in the floor and upon inspection I found that the hinge bearing that fits inside the bottom of the door was completely broken off. I had to take a flat screwdriver and dig it out enough to grab it with a pair of pliers and pull it out. I inserted the new bearing and made sure it was all the way in then applied some petroleum jelly around it and the door closing cam. My door closing cam was still good so I didn't have to replace it. I lifted the door and placed it back in the hole on the bottom, closed the door, reinstalled the hinge on top, adjusted the door, tightened the bolts and reinstalled the hinge cover. Piece of cake thanks to the video on the web site!!! I know from now on where to go for parts I need for any of my appliances. Thanks !!!!!
