First I removed the 5 torx head screws that held on the outside panel. Then I unplugged the 2 electrical connectors to the circuit boards, one goes to the touch pad the other is the power. Then I removed the assembly. I only needed the part that holds on the round door but I replaced all the parts that came in the kit.
With the directions that they sent me with the parts, and since I was the one that took it apart. I was able to fix it in about 20minutes and it worked great.

Removed the front panel and all associated parts from the water and ice on the door.

My husband had taken everything apart and was ready to order a whole new panel. After reading some of the stories on the website of people having the same problem (no ice would come out, water would come out & not stop or splatter everywhere) we decided to start with the part everyone seemed to have ordered. After ordering the part, it arrived faster than I expected, and solved the problem. It helped reading the other stories so we knew what kind of tools were needed and other helpful hints. I have already recommented partselect.com to my sister in law to help with a dishwasher repair.

Couldn't believe how easy this was. The pictures you provided were perfect everything went exactly as the instructions said. I had to of saved at least $150.00. I would grade my mechanical skills at about a C+ at best and this was an easy fix.
If I need appliance parts, I now know where to go.

Then connected water lines and the electrical to new inlet, and attached the new inlet back with the one screw, reattached the fiber backing. All Done.

My part was received in only 3 days. It was exactly what I need. The directions sent with the ice door were really simple to follow. Within 30 minutes my family was back to getting ice from the refridgerator door. Nobody wants anything to tear up, but I hope if I do have troubles in the future, it's something that partselect carries parts for. These days it's hard to find a business that gives you want you want, quickly, for a fair price. If you were a movie I would give you two thumbs up. Thanks for making this a good outcome and not just another headache!!

Ice door tab broke off

The parts just arrived -- wow, I think I've found my favorite parts supplier!!!

Ironically, I had jury rigged a new tab on the ice door by inserting a screw into where the tab snapped off, but it didn't work! As I was taking it apart this time, I realized that the solenoid spring had become unclipped. However, it's nice to have it all back together again and working with new parts!

Thank you -- great packaging, the parts look fantastic, and a great sheet of instructions! I've already repaired my refrigerator (only took about ten minutes) and it's up and running!

Thank you!!

Replaced flapper, and solenoid per the instructions. It was much easier than I had anticipated. The hardest part was reconnecting the control wire to the front panel. Not much room to get your hands in there, but it finally went together...

Removed the face plate by removing the two screws under the fountain catch tray on the front of the fridge, and then sliding the cover up and off. Removed 3 screws to remove the dispenser and the limit switch was easily accessible on the back side. Also changed the actuator pad because the old one looked cosmetically bad.

Broken Actuator, water/ice switch getting stuck

  • Customer: Albert from Banks, OR
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
First, I removed the water/ice fountain panel - remove the 4 screws and disconnect the panel buttons cable. Second, I removed the panel circuit board - remove the two screws and disconnect the two wire connectors. Third, I pulled the water/ice fountain compartment. Removed the broken rubber pad (actuator pad), and installed the new one -- no tools needed for this step. Finally, I put everything back together. TIP: If the water/ice switch gets stuck, even with the new actuator, find a spring that can fit the switch pin that comes with the actuator. I had that problem, and I simply added a small spring.)

wtaer leak at door supply or ice maker wouldn't due to lack of water

Pulled out frig and unplugged it from wall. Took out 2 screws to gain access to valves. Took out screw holding bracket holding valve bracket to frig and removed one more to remove the old valve from bracket. Simple water disconnect with wrench after that and changing the lines to door cutting them back 1/2 ", direct plug in electrical connections, replacement exact like original. I had previously changed the other solinoid with the problematic Y connector but that didn't do the trick. This fix seems to be the correct one to fix the problem.

Ice Dispense Repair on front door:
Just followed the directions to remove that front panel, removed the screws, as needed, to take out the unit. The new parts installed easily, in fact, much easier than I thought it would be. Just re-assembled unit and was back in business...
