CustomerDavid from Chesterfield MO

Warm air getting into freezer

Patience is a virtue. The kit really works. 1st, lift the front plate of the ice dispencer by placing a flat head screw driver into the two slots at the bottom of the panel. When the panel is lifted up slightly at the bottom, push up on the panel to remove it. Careful not to break panel and the wires attached. Next, remove the wiring panel by removing the two screws on left and right sides. Then, unplug the old black ice cover from the wiring panel (this is the heating plug that you will nolonger need). Next, remove the parts and replace them with the parts in the kit, noting where each part comes from, etc. All parts in the kit are necessary and should be used. Some of the replacements need trial and error. Patience will be important. Also needed is a person that loves to solve problems, especially because the kit does not come with instructions. But the kit definitely works!

Where ic e dispencer spring is held to door broke at mold

after ordering ice dispencer repair kit, and removing the outer parts found out that the problem was the ice dispencer door shell . this part is no longer available.It seems to me that if whirlpool wants to have return customers they have to stand behind the product. Well I made a L bracket and drilled a hole to to recieve the spring keeper and glued this to the housing and used a 3 1/12"finishing nail as the pin all works fine

CustomerDwight from Marietta OK

Door chute broken

First removed the outside cover plate which was some what scary not to break plastic cover. Had read about another discription of removal of cover to start from the bottom because the top is inserted in slots that would have broken if removed from the top. After cover plate removed it was simple to remove the broken parts and install the new parts. The most difficult part to put back in was the spring and rod had to be inserted the same time.

Ice dispenser freezing up, dispenser door not closing completely.

First off, if you have the stainless steel panel inserts on your refrigerator you'll need to remove those to do this repair. I kept looking for the access holes on the underside of the dispenser panel that you're supposed to insert a screwdriver into to pry it off. It wasn't until I removed the freezer door handle, slid the lower stainless panel insert out, and removed the rail just beneath the dispenser that I could see and access these holes. I also removed the upper stainless panel and rail just above the dispenser to allow enough movement get the dispenser cover off and out. The rest of the repair is pretty straightforward. The old ice door was beaten up and not closing completely, this was letting warm air into the freezer which was melting and re-freezing. This kit fixed the problem.

Ice door holder arm broken

The hardest part was getting the front cover plate off. I used two kitchen knifes one in each slot on the bottom of the plate and pried it off and unplug it. I removed one screw to release arm. I then used long nose pliers to remove the pin on door arm assemble. Then unplug door heater. New door has no heater. The heater had cooked the plastic arm, which caused the arm to fail. Then reassemble in reverse order.

Ice distribution door broke

At their site was ordering each piece by # and cost and it was adding up to be costly. Went to partselect and was doing the same and up pops the ice door kit. Was a little wary because my original had a heater tape to it. Got the kit and installed not a problem at all. 100% satisfied would recommend to anyone.

Ice dispensing door would not close

On the bottom of the cover plate are two slots. Insert thin bladed screw driver and pry out gently. Remove electrical connection plate. Remove the old door by removing pin from spring and retaining bracket useing long nose pliers. Install new door kit making sure you use all the parts in the kit. The door buffer is different and the new kit does not require a heater.Install the electrical plate, ice shute and front cover.

CustomerCarl from Mt Juliet TN

Plastic door bracket for icemaker chute broken

Googled with question about how to get to the repair as there were no screws on the faceplate. Found I had to lift the faceplate at the bottom and pry out. Was kind of hard to get the long spindle back through the ears of the bracket holder along with getting the spring of the door lined up for the spindle to pass through to the other side. Finally got it right and then just put it all back together. Frustrating at first but I had to get it done as my wife was tired of having to take large clumps of ice out of the ice tray..three years wait for the repair. That door being open let warm air in and let the ice melt just enough to stick together in a clump. All is well now. Longer you wait the more appreciative she is however. ha

The door shoot plastic had cracked allowing air to get into the freezer compartment.

I unplugged the fridge, removed the face plate on the front, disconnected the power feeds, unscrewed the electrical panel and moved it out of the way.
I then dismantled and removed the broken part and installed the new part. I was able to use the rest of the existing parts to get the job done.
I put everything back together, and voila! it works great.
