I followed the PartSelect repair video to replace the ice bucket auger and it was the greatest thing I've ever seen. There's no telling how long this repair would have taken if the video had not walked me through the perfect steps to fix the problem. The video was clear and concise and perfect! It was as if I had the repairman in my kitchen holding my hand step by step as I replaced the part. The video made simple what would have been a complicated and arduous task had I tried to figure it out on my own. The repair video is the only thing you'll need to perform this repair (as well as a couple of screw drivers, chanel locks, and a putty knife)!

Excess water was seeping into the ice maker through the fill tube in back. Reading repair stories here on Parts Direct quickly led me to the water solenoid fill valve. I ordered it and received it in two days. The video here on Parts Direct showed how to change the valve and armed with that information it was an easy 20 minute job. Problem is fixed and the ice maker works flawlessly.

Disconnected power cord and turned off water supply. Then I removed rear metal cover on back bottom of refrigerator. I put a towel under 2 water lines, removed water line from wall into valve, removed screw holding water valve, removed both water lines by pushing in on connector and pulling out on the line, removed each electical connector. Then I reversed the process. I did cut about a half inch using a carpet knife from the two water lines entering the bottom of the dual inlet valve. Before putting the metal cover on I turned on refrigerator and water to check for leaks. Notes to remember are that electrical connectors are color coded and 2 bottom water lines are different diameters.

I read the step by step instructions that came with the part. I turned two screws and disconnected the electrical harness and Removed the icemaker. Two other parts from the old icemaker were easily removed without any tools and put on the new icemaker. The new icemaker was put in the same way the old one came out. I reconnected the electrical harness and tightened the old screws. The hardest part of the whole job was reading the directions. They were easy to follow if you take the time to Just read them!

I unplugged my fridge. Took out food and shelves. Unscrewed 3 top screws and two nuts to remove back panel. Started at the bottom and unscrewed 2 screws , took out heater then unscrewed the 2 screws on the top one and took it out. I used a blow dryer to defrost all of the ice on the coils. I put the new one in , bottom first, then tucked the wires, and then installed the top one. I unclasped the old thermostat on the silver coil/pipe and clamped the new thermostat on. Then I unplugged the wires from the old unit and plugged in the wires from the new one and put the hanging wires in the plastic clip at the top of the unit to keep them off the coils. I put the back panel back on, put the screws and nuts in, put shelves and food back in , and I was finished. It's working great now!!!

Initial Problem was no water coming out of door dispenser but found housing supporting the board and dispenser was broken

  • Customer: Johnnie from Anaheim, CA

1. Water not coming out of water dispenser in door. 2. Watched video and did trouble shooting and found that the water was not getting from the rear to the line connection at the bottom of the freezer door (outside the door). Ordered and installed the Double Outlet Water Valve in the rear of the refrigerator. I checked to make sure the water pressure was good and it was. After installation I still could not get water at the dispenser. I disconnected the line connection at the bottom of the door again and had water to the connection but not up through the door. 3. I watched the tape and disassembled the dispenser mechanism. I found that the flapper valve was not closing properly. There was frost on the inside of the ice slide in side the freezer door and water and cold air was coming out the ice slide to the outside of the refrigerator door. 4. I tried to close the flap and use the push mechanism while it was disassembled and found that the dispenser housing shield was broken where the left spring is attached that operates the actuator (black) where you put your glass to dispense ice and water. I ordered that part. After ordering that, I watched another video and found out that the ice dispenser flapper needed to be replaced. I ordered the flapper, spring, solenoid, and recess crank. Once all the parts arrived, I installed then via the instructions from the video and some figuring it out. It did not say how to install the dispenser housing shield so I just reversed engineered it from how it came off. Once I got all parts on, I tried the water and it still did not work. I figured out that the water was still frozen about two inches inside the water line at the dispenser down to about 18 inches into the pipe. I used a hair dryer and tried to thaw it out. No luck. It was late so I quit working. the next morning I tried the water and it worked. Now everything works perfectly and no frost and no cold air coming out of the flapper. I concluded that the flapper malfunction caused the freezer air to blow on the water dispenser pipe therefore freezing it. Since I fixed the flapper, the line thawed overnight and is working great. I think the back double outlet water valve went bad because we kept pushing the lever to try to get the water to flow and eventually burned it out. That is a guess on my part. We should have watched the great videos before we did more damage. The videos are excellent and the repair was easy after the troubleshooting was complete. Good luck with your repairs.
