It was a easy enough repair. A little bit tough to press locks in to release hoses because lines were not long enough to pull out for under the refrigerator.

I had a problem with my ice dispenser not dispensing ice. The water worked fine but the ice side didn’t dispense ice. I watch the video on Parts Select.com and it was very helpful, but my model didn’t have screws to remove the front cover. At the bottom of the front cover was two indention where you could put a small tool and pry on it, I had to take a small pick tool and pry up on the front cover to pop it loose. You have to take something small like a pick tool because if you use something like a screwdriver or a butter knife you will get behind the plastic housing (also called a hood) that is screwed to the refrigerator. The key is to remove the face plate from the plastic hood piece (that is screwed to the refrigerator), so you have to get in between the face plate and the plastic housing. If you get behind the plastic housing you can break the housing, you must get between the two pieces and it will pop loose. This is the only problem I had with this installation. The rest of the repair was very easy and now my ice maker dispenses ice great.

I watched the installation video on "Parts Select". Unfortunately I watched it twice b/c the first part ordered last October only lasted 4 months. This part seems to be alright as the refrigerator has been running for approximately 6 days now - so far so good.

Replacing the door closing cams, starts with emptying the door of all foodstuffs. Remove upper hinge cover. While supporting the door, remove three upper hinge screws with the nutdriver. Lift upper hinge from top and lift door off lower hinge pin. Remove the cam retaining screws on both the bottom of the door and the lower hinge pin. Pry (if needed) the worn cams from their position. Install new cams making sure to line up the screw holes. Re-install screws, tightening just snug. Lift door back onto lower hinge pin. Set upper hinge back in place with screws loosely installed. Check door gap, top to bottom to ensure proper alignment. Tighten upper hinge screws and re-install hinge cover. Check door for proper function.

Refrigerator door would not close by itself

  • Customer: William from Apex, NC
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

I've replaced the door cams in the past, but they didn't last very long. I finally realized on my own that both parts need to be replaced at the same time. One piece is on the case-side of the bottom hinge and the mate is on the door-side of the bottom hinge. They both have a ramp shape, with door ramp riding up the hinge ramp as you open the door. The ramp shape makes the door want to slide back down the ramp to close automatically. These are plastic parts that wear out over time. If you don't replace both at the same time, the ramp shapes don't match and they wear out quickly. They are inexpensive parts, so always replace both at the same time. I added a thin layer of petroleum jelly to help them glide better. Hopefully this fix will last a long time. It's extremely easy. First take off the top hinge of the door. Then lift the whole door off the bottom hinge. You can set it on a chair with the bottom hinge hanging over the edge of the chair. Replace the two parts, one on the door bottom hinge and one on the refrigerator case bottom hinge. Easy as pie. The only tool needed is a nut driver. You need a helper to help lift and balance the door while you work on it.

I was able to verify that the water inlet valve was ok based on shorting the test points as described in the online ice maker troubleshooting guide. I then ordered the replacement ice maker and received it within 3 days. The repairs went very smooth, remove 3 screws, unplug connector, transfer shutoff wire to new unit, connect power, replace 3 screws. Done. Ice bucket was full within 24 hours.

First I used some glue to stop the crack from spreading, and that worked for a while, but then I deceided to get a new replacement part. What I got was better than the original one as it had a white protective piece over the end of the drawer and I believe that will give more protection to the drawer. My kids did not always close the drawer all the ways and that is how the crack started. So now the refrigerator looks like new again.
