Sticking Ice dispenser

  • Customer: James from Englewood, FL

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

After checking the prices of new refrigerators, I decided that I had nothing to lose trying to repair the sticking ice/water dispenser. I followed the previous instructions by prying off the panel with a screwdriver working my way around. Some effort is needed, but it will come loose before it breaks. You should remove the funnel first. If you have an older model, the funnels are fragile and should come out with a gentle back and forth jiggle. I broke mine. After pulling the face off the frig,I noticed that the plastic piece the activates the dispenser was partially out of its cradle in the rubber piece. Apparently pushing too hard on it can dislodge this piece and cause the unit to stick. Check this out before going for a new actuator. It only took a few minutes to clean and reassemble and reinstall. Works perfectly. Received new funnel and it was different than the one I took out. I missed the note that said if you order the funnel, you should also get the bracket to be sure they go back together. Two lessons learned. Don,t be afraid of this repair and don't push too hard on the dispenser.

Evaporator Fan Squeeking

  • Customer: Kyle from WOODBURY, MN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)
  • 8 of 9 people found this instruction helpful
Detected noise as coming from top freezer department, and tips and part diagram clearly pointed to evaporator fan. You go in through the freezer (you have to empty top half of freezer); removing the side rails holding the ice bin, and then the 4 outer screws (only 2 each side - not the middle ones) holding the 'auger' that turns the bin. From there it gets interesting in trying to disconnect the wires. You might consider taking some pictures of the connected wires - perhaps it doesn't matter, but several of them can be hooked up in reverse. After the ice marker is out, remove light and light cover, side rails/mounts that hold hold up ice maker. This leaves a large white cover that pops out (seam at bottom of it has two tabs that you can pop out) holding the fan; and then only a few more wires to disconnect to be able to get at the fan. Mine clearly had a wobble to it confirming the source of the squeak and need to replace. Install was just reverse -- a bit tricky to get some of the wires connected given the tight spaces. Overall, not difficult - but a lot of wires and screws to connect/disconnect. I didn't take any pictures as I disassembled, and found myself having to take some extra time to figure it out as I reassembled. In the end -- a silent and functioning refrigerator Good luck!

The part was extremely easy to replace. The unit came out with one screw, and I had to unplug the wire connection. After removing I noticed the ice tray was cracked - that's what caused the problem. The new unit went in easily with 1 plug in connection and 1 screw. I was done in less than 10 minutes.

1) Take out 3 screws from top of icemaker. 2) Unplug electrical connector from wiring harness. 3) Remove icemaker unit from freezer and then remove frozen cube sensor with clip and rear insulation. 4) With your hands pull cube tray motor out of the holding clips with the tray- if this is too difficult, spread bracket and only remove the tray from the unit. 5) Insert new tray into slots and install new or existing ice sensor, insulation, and sensor clip. 6) Reinstall icemaker unit to ceiling of freezer, don't forget to plug into wiring harness. 7) Turn unit on and make some ice!

Water valve replacement at back bottom right. Removed, water supply line and old valve with 1 screw and removed clips from hoses. Replaced with new valve and re-clipped hoses. Easy fix! Cleaned coils and back with blower and vacuum cleaner while I was in there too. I also had leak in water supply line, replaced. Ice trap door replacement was a little more challenging. Hard to get off the ice dispenser funnel (Part# 278D). Has 4 lock clips on it and 1 broke when I took it off. This part# 278D is not available from part select?? Tricky to replace the trap door itself. Have to make sure the door valve sits in solenoid correctly. Installed wrong the first time and door would not open/close. Had to go in and reset orrectly. Works like a charm now. Still need part# 278D!!
