First I turned off the water supply to the frig and raised the bar in the ice make to stop the production of ice. I used the nut driver to remove 3 screws from the housing. I removed the connections from the two water lines & removed the broken housing. I attached the water lines to the new housing and then screwed it back into the refrigerator. I replaced the filter and screwed the filter cup into the housing. Turned on water & ice maker, then ran water thru the door dispenser to check to see if I had done it correctly. No leaks !!! Yeah....I was done !!!

Unplug refrigerator. Take out spill tray by sliding out. remove bottom 3 screws, gently but firmly push up and against refrigerator(Top section of cover snaps in by pulling cover down while holding cover against refrigerator). There is a ribbon wire connecting the two boards, care not to tear it out of connectors. There are two tabs on the plastic connector holding the ribbon wire to the outside board,pull the tabs out a little and gently pull the ribbon loose, carefully. There are 3 screws holding in the back board, remove them, them remove water hose from water actuator so the assembly can come out. Gently spread the plastic holder to be able to take the broken paddle out. Watch closely how the third arm on the actuator(Lower left arm)is resting on the back of the flapper.Replace the Actuator exactly the same. Just reverse the steps to install the rest of the parts.(Had a time getting the water hose back into it place. I used pliers to push and wiggle it back into it opening).Don't forget to plug the frig back in again. DOOR CLOSING CAM AND HINGE BEARING ARE VERY EASY. It take about 10 to 15 minutes to do. Empty door drawers before procedure the screw holding the plastic cover, remove cover. I used a 3/8" nut driver and my cordless drill to take out the two lag bolts holding the top hinge.Lift door off bottom hinge. Replace Door Closure/Hinge Bearing. Reverse procedure to finish installation.

Original gate broke at the swivel point

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 12 of 16 people found this instruction helpful
I removed the old gate by using a flat head screw driver to pry open mouth. I then removed 2 bolts that held on the cage that hols the ice crushing blades. Then I inserted the new gate and used a screw driver to pry the mouth open again (it was more difficult to insert than remove). I then popped in the new gate and re-assembled the cage. It worked on the first shot with no problems!

This is the 3rd time I have attemped and successfully repaired major home appliances myself after the warrenty ran out. I'm sure I could buy a new appliance for the money I saved.

starter smoking when first coming on

The retaining wire keeping the starter in place was first removed then the starter was easily removed. Pulling the old wire off was a little difficult because I had to pull harder than I expected. Getting the wire back on was probably the hardest part. I had to compress one part of the plug so I could get it to fit back on then it was simply a matter of placing the starter back in position and replacing the wire that holds it snugly in place. 20 minutes or so start to finish and new starter works well.

I broke the fan while cleaning the coil

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

The broken fan made my refrigerator sound like a lawn mower I pulled the refrigerator out of it's nook and disconnected the power, removed the back panel with my battery powered drill motor, slid the old fan off of motor shaft, slid the new fan back on ran it to make sure the problem was corrected. The entire repair took less than fifteen minutes and was as simple as it could be. Please be careful when cleaning your coil, as the fan is easily damaged if you should contact it.

Water was leaking from under and in the fridge

First I took both bolts off of the housing (holds filter) and removed two hoses by holding elbow vavle in while pulling hoses. Did the reverse to replace. The trick was knowing how to remove the elbow valves. Second there was still water leaking under the fridge, discovered it was the water inlet valve underneath. Ordered that part.

Food compartment not cooling, freezer working well.

Fantastic!
Sent in a brief description of problem and model number. Reply and description of other customers experiences guided us to the exact problem.
We ordered the part on Friday and it was here on Tuesday.
I prepared the freezer compartment for the removal of the old motor and on Sunday husband installed new Evaporator Fan Motor.

It works and is cooling like it did when it was new.

This has been a great experience as all repairmen wanted at least 60.00 to just come out and determine what the problem was. I can only imagine what the final bill would have been.

This was easy and inexpensive.

Thanks for all the help.
