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.

CustomerTina from Lawrenceburg IN

In the door ice maker coupling was broken, therefore, it would not dispense ice.

Ordered the parts, three days later they arrived. Put the coupling and the washer in place and screwed the dispenser back in place. Oh yeah, also installed the new filter that I ordered. Piece of cake.

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.

CustomerEl Ray from San Jose CA

Ice maker not working

After checking the codes, they indicated that the emmitter board was inoperative so I changed the control boards. Very simple and straight forward (about 10 minutes). After changing the boards I double checked the codes, this time the codes indicated the control boards were functioning properly but still no ice. A friend suggested the water feed line could be frozen and defrosting the freezer could possibly resolve the problem. My freezer is full and it will take time to empty it to continue. Any other suggestions in the meantime? Installing the new water filter took about a minute and is working properly.

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.

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!
