Replaced the drive gear on the ice dispenser

The video on replacing this part was spot on. The screw was a little difficult to remove at first. It had been installed ten years earlier and also had some thread lock installed. A light swat with a hammer on the end of screw driver as I was trying to remove it got the screw started without stripping the Phillips head. Once we got by that little snag, it's a piece of cake, or piece of ice if you prefer.

Ice despenser stoped working, auger motor worked if door flap was opened fully manuallyw

I Googled the problem and after reading several posting & suggestions decided that the Ice dispenser kit would probably solve the problem. I ordered both parts on the chance that it might be only the micro switch and it was only a $10 part, the ice dispenser kit was $50. The access was really easy and the switch was installed in about 20 minutes but did not solve the problem so I proceeded with the kit. The parts came out fairly easy but our actual set up was slightly different from the video and print instructions. Our model did not have the heating ribbon on the door flap and the little barrel part was permanently attached to the refrigerator so I thought I could be in trouble. Did not realize that we had cracker the lever bracket clip during removal so my husband "brainstormed" a fix. That's what we needed the large head screw and drill for. We drilled the screw into the refrigerator so it holding the spring loaded piece tightly in position. Works fine. I was told my a repairman over the phone that the dispenser was probably not fixable on our model. I saved an expensive service call AND GOT THE DISPENSER WORKING!

The refigerator door would not close easily - stayed ajar unless pushed closed

Great video on-line - remove door by unscrewing bracket (3 screws) at top of door; the door magnet will hold it to the face of the frig until you are ready to lift it off... Lift door off and position horizontally across a padded table or sawhorses. The door is actually very light in weight. The cams at the bottom were easy to put on - use care not to overtighten the retaining screw. The top thimble takes a lot of time to "dig out" of the top of the door - hard not to mar and bend the door in this area. This took almost one-half hour to get it out!! Putting in the new one, use care to not cave in the door corner, not a lot of structural strength in the area. Once all the door items are in place, put the door back in place on the frig and replace the top bracket to hold it in place; watch to line up the gap between the frig and freezer door so it hangs straight. Check the two cams at the door bottom - they won't fit perfectly when the door is in the closed position and that is OK... IMPORTANT - the door should now close, but it won't automatically shut on its own until you load the door back up with your food items. Once the items are in place on the door you will see that it now closes completely with very little to no effort... just like it should. Hope this is helpful!!!

Had appliance tech diagonise the problem as the ice maker module, and told me the complete ice maker was no longer available and the module alone would cost $460. Found this complete unit online ordered it and watched installation video 4 or 5 times and installed it in less than ten minutes. I had ice in 30 minutes.

Followed recommendations from others but went with most likely by percentage = defrost timer kit. Did not solve issue. Then went with bi-metal thermostat and that did not fix the problem. Tested the thermostat as recommended on line and old part was bad, new part ok. Then I saw on line that I should have listened for fan operation. I checked and found the fan motor to be defective. Replaced the motor and refrigerator worked fine. Both the motor and bi-metal thermostat were required. Should have checked fan operation first.

I followed along with the Video from the web site. I used the masking tape to keep the electric parts out of the way. one of the attaching points for the new ice door broke off so i used J B Weld to reattach it. then the repair was finished with out a hitch. The time was extended by the need to wait for the epoxy to cure

It was fairly easy my 4 year old daughter helped me, I replaced the electronic boards with ease, the light worked but the water was not coming to the ice maker I checked the line noticed that there was Ice buildup inline so I used a tool to crush the ice and used the the turkey baster to flush the line with hot water, after that the ice maker started to work I saved a lot of money.

Ice dispenser guide missing and ice dispensor switch broken stays

  • Customer: Richard from La Quinta, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

The ice dispensor guid went in very quickly - just as the video indicated. The rear, side stays were a little tight, but it now works great. The plastic bracket holder for the water and ice switches had broken holders for the ice switch. The video was very clear, and disconnecting the electric above the door made the job easier. My arrangement is a little different from the video (no screws holding the outside cover no the inside bracket box). But, the repair went quickly and I would have had a lot of extra problems without the video as a clear and detailed guide. My only wish was to have seen the videos before purchasing the parts. I highly recommend your parts, quick delivery, reasonable prices, and excellent video repair guides. Thanks,

Ice dispenser was broken

My handyman did the repair. It was pretty easy for him. It would have been a real puzzle if we had not watched the video instructions. The new parts were slightly different than the old parts, but they fit perfectly. I thawed the frost buildup around the ice door and the opening of the ice bin with a hair drier, to get the ice to come out properly. Thank you so much for the video!

water dispencer not working, ice maker is working

This was not a through the door unit. The water dispenser is located inside the refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the two screws holding the cover over the dispenser parts. Could not remove the cover completely as there is a water supply line attached. Let the front of the cover down as far as you can get it. The micro switch is reachable. Move plastic retaining posts holding the switch in place, to the side to release the switch. This can be done with your fingers. Pop the switch out. Use the blade of the screw driver to gently pry the electrical connection plug away from the switch. Attach the new switch to the plug and put everything back in the reverse order of disassembly. Done, easy, even I could do it.
