Question about Refrigerators
In my side by side whirlpool refrigerator a very small piece of plastic has broken (about 11 x 5 mm). This piece holds in place the cover of the ice deliver tube. As result the cover do not shut properly any more and the air, entering by the tube, is causing the refrigerator to acumulate undue ice. Authorized service people said that I had to replace the complete left size refrigerator door, at a very very expensive price. So, I removed the front control panel and saw that I would be capable to fix the problem. I am thinking in bonding in place that small piece of plastic, or maybe replacing it by a piece of aluminium profile, bonded to the refigerator door. I would like to know if Araldite is a good choice to do the work. Also, I would like to know the type of plastic used by Whirpool in the doors of their refrigerators, since for some types of plastic Araldite is not appropriate. Thanks for your attention.

You can replace the doors but you will think you bought a new frig when you see what they cost. Most come as an assembly and are very expensive.

If you look up into the dispenser area, you'll find a small (1/4") hex head screw that holds the right side of the ice dispenser chute and flap in place. You can remove the screw and the clip that holds the assembly in place and you can remove the chute and flap from the door.
Once you have that out, you can see the clip on the chute that holds it in place on the dispensing lever. Unclip it and you can install the new chute by reversing the steps described.
You can also try to just unclip the chute, but you could break it or the dispensing lever/arm in the process, hence the reason for removing the assembly instead.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

the front dispensor panel can be removed by lookin under the panel you see too little spaces in which ti insert a screw driver,by pushing down on the top, you cantwist the screwdriver in the opening eleasing the tabs, and simply lifting off the top tabs, dependingon model you may need to un plug a wire or 2.. the tubing should be able to be removed be releasing the connector undeer the door and simply refeeding the new hose back into unit
