Filter needed changing

All of 16 seconds. It took longer to get it out of the box than to change it. Untwist the old one, pull it out and replace the new one.

Stripper arm broke

I had to disassemble the unit. After it was out I unpluged the wires and removed the broken ends of the stripper. Most of my time was spent figuring out how everything worked. I installed the new arm and slipped the unit back in place. It works perfectly. I could do it in under 30 minutes now. The cost savings is well worth the effort.

Fridge door wouldn't stay closed

Removed the door with Socket set & removed the lower door closing cam, replaced it with the new one and reattached the door. Biggest part of the problem was diagnosing the part needed. I replaced the filter while I was at it.

ToolsNutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

CustomerRon from Bremerton WA

Ice maker wouldn't work.

First I removed the ice tray door by lifting and then releasing the hinge. Then I used a nutdriver and socket to remove three recessed screws that are located under the icemaker. I also removed the screw on the underside which holds a plastic flange in place covering the wiring harness. Remove the plastic flange and slide the icemaker out as far as possible, then disconnect the wiring harness from the icemaker. Slide the old unit out and discard. Reverse the procedure to install the new unit. Points of frustration: Disconnecting the wiring harness--it is in there mighty tight! Also, when sliding the new unit into place, clearing the rubber water spout without breaking something is somewahat of a challenge. The unit comes out
easier than it goes back in!

Fins on auger drum had broken off, water filter needed replacing

Water filter screws out and in, no problem there. The ice maker auger was a little detailed, but I removed all screws and took apart the main components. The auger assembly was reverse threaded, and the blades, etc., all came off in order. Then the old auger drum was removed, new one put on, and the auger assembly reassembled. Then screwed all components back together, put it back in the freezer, and it worked like a charm!
