Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Is Araldite appropriate for bonding plastic and aluminium?

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.

    I just want to know if Araldite works well in bonding a piece of aluminium to the plastic part of the left side door of my side by side Whirlpool refrigerator.

SOURCE: How do I replac the clear plastic cover over the ice shute on the

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!

If it is broken in two/three pieces then it can be joined with the help of Araldite/any other strong glue available in the market. Otherwise contact the whirlpool support on line/telephone and ask them to help you out because service centre people are only interested in doing major repairs where they can make money. For smaller items they just do not bother. If I am not wrong the factory is in Noida and you should be able to contact them easily.

Refrigerator door stays open.

Sears came out and repaired my door with this same problem. It was a pretty easy fix. There is a small black part that the door rests on. It just was worn out. The repairman simply unscrewed the door from the top of the refrigerator. He lift the door off. The door normally rest on a black round circular plastic part about 1 in in diameter. It has a small plastic piece sticking up about 1/2 inch that the door rests on. This piece was worn on bottom. I have the Sears invoice and I bought a replacement bin for the door and I don't know which item is for the black plastic piece. Here are both part numbers so call Sears and order the correct part
CAM-DOOR 46 106 4318165 1 or $14.83
SUB TRIM-DOO 46 106 2156022K 1 $12.48
It took the Sear's guy about 10 minutes to repair. So save yourself $200 and do it yourself.

There is a picture of the part in the Whirlpool Manual, under Door Removal, look at the bottom hinge.

Email me if you need another picture.

Whirlpool pin retainer is broken on ice dispenser

this is easy. there is a small area beside where the piece broke off. bend a small peice of metal coat hanger at a 90 degree angle, (this is so you can make your new hole on the correct line) heat the end with a lighter, burn a smallhole thru this area beside where the previous hole existed. now throw away the old pin that you were using and use a piece of coat hanger cut to the right length. on one end bend about one half inch to 90 degree angle, feed thru new hole and thru your spring and flap and thru to opposite side hole and lastly make small bend to keep wire from sliding out. ta da, fixed. problem solved for about two cents. i have successfully repaired many of these doors.
