Ice door holder brocken

To replace front cover and ice door kit I had to check the new cover how it is cliped on the bottom to remove the old cover, but after that it was not very difficult.

CustomerBetty J from Amherst VA

Ice cube door would not close pr0perly

Because of the design change of the door hinge it was more difficult to slide the pin into the door and spring. I used an allen wrench to hold it in place on the left side so I could slide the pin in the right hole. Then removed the allen wrench so I could slide the pin all the way. I was very impressed with the time that it took to get the kit. I ordered it about 1:30PM and the following day I had the kit delivered by 6PM. FANTASTIC SERVICE!

CustomerStacey from Kingman KS

The ice door chute was not closing tightly, so there was a freeze/thaw problem which was slugging up the ice auger.

I killed the power to the fridge on my breaker box before I started the repair job. I popped the dispenser panel off by slipping two screwdrivers(one in each slot on the bottom of the panel). Then I removed two screws on the wire panel beneath in order to get to the ice door chute. (Take a mental note of how all the parts are positioned that you must replace.) I had to remove the pin in the ice door lever, then I replaced the spring and the ice door(flapper) with the new ice door support (timed release closure). The new ice door support doesn't require the white shroud that existed on the previous part. The most difficult part of this repair was having the patience to deal with the wire panel dangling in the way, and trying to contort myself in awkward positions to be able to see what I was doing. My hands are large, so it was difficult to maneuver them in order to make everything fit back together. If you have someone to hold the panel up out of the way while you are working, it would be much easier. If you have a short mechanic's creeper chair, it would be helpful!

CustomerBill from Mesquite TX

Ice dispenser was freezing up due to the broken door

The repair went pretty easy. You must remove the cover and lift up the electronics to gain access. The instructions were a little vague since the new door/chute didn't have the electric heater wire. I eventually realized that it wasn't needed and replaced the door without further incident.

With a new valve in the back, I now have water and ice at the door after a couple year hiatus!

Thanks.

Ice/water dispenser broke

This went together like a puzzle. With the help of the diagram it was fairly easy to do. Most importantly I ordered the part in the morning and it was there the next day without even paying overnight delivery...very impressed!
