I just purchased WR17X11653, WR02x10585, & WR17x10706 for my refrigerator. The Dispenser Recess Trim is very difficult to remove. I am afraid if I apply too much pressure with the putty knife, the trim will break. Please advise on the best way to remove this part so that I can replace the parts that I bought. Thanks!
Answer Hello Thelma,
You do not have to remove the trim to replace the ice door. Turn power off to the unit and grasp the bottom of the interface assembly and pull out on the bottom of it, (this is the part with the dispenser controls on it). This will snap out. You will then be able to remove the screws holding the dispenser housing shield in place. When this is removed, the ice door is easily accessed. I would have the ice door solenoid WR62X10055 ready to put in also since condensation causes this design to commonly rust and seize.
Hello, My ice door flapper seems to stay open even If I push it down. It wont close completely. Any suggestions?
Answer Tony, If you're sure there are no obstructions in the chute or housing you'll need to remove the façade WR55X10443 and the dispenser shield WR49X10227 and check the solenoid WR62X10055, spring and door crank for broken or bent/damaged parts.
How do I access the the ice door for replacement. I'm having trouble removing the control panel.
Answer Hello Mark. To remove the dispenser display: 1. Remove the Phillips-head screw from the housing. 2. Insert a small flat-blade screwdriver into the small opening located at the bottom front corner of the display. 3. Pry the bottom right side of the dispenser display away from the dispenser recess. 4. Grasp display, pull it towards the right and remove it from the recess. 5. Disconnect the wire harness. Caution: To prevent breaking tabs when installing the display, first insert the left side tabs into the recess then snap the display in place.
