The latch and spring that unlock my ice bin have come off; how do I put this back together

To release the ice bin from my kenmore side by side refrigerator the latch must be pushed in to release the ice bucket/bin. Problem: the latch arm under the bucket has come off along with the spring. How do I fix this?

SOURCE: know how to put the ice bin latch and spring back together

I had the same problem. When you put the spring back on the little arm towards the button, use a mini screwdriver or something to pull the spring back and pop the latch part back in the indented spots. Then, it will seem stuck but you just put some pressure on the curved side of the latch - opposite from the button and it will "pop" back into place.

I have a Samsung fridge RFG238AARS an the ice bin in that services the door ice will not come out. The release switch is struck ?


Joe Snow... Hello,

Pretty sure you have had some loose water freezing those sections together... once thusly... you are either looking at brute force and hoping to find/buy the parts you break...

I have the Kenmore Elite... My opinion... the MOST HIGHLY sensitive BIN for jamming onto the door... SINCE I have learned to completely DRY the BIN before putting it back into PRODUCTION... I HAVE had NO trouble GETTING THIS ugly little bin to release...

Still can't get it loose...
You may need the more cerebral approach of allowing the room temperature (perhaps rushed along with a room fan... TO SEPARATE... DRY & REASSEBLE INTO their original design... sans BLOCK ICE.

Using HEAT sources on SOFT PLASTIC parts would/could prove quite EXPENSIVE (assuming you could actually get the PARTS/SPARES... YOU HAVE Warped, Melted & otherwise ruined.... (I'm just saying).

I periodically remove ... dump & clean the ice bin... On the first couple of times I left a little water inside...
What could it harm...

Now that I know the SECRET... It is my go to bin for picnics, parties, champagne buckets, black-eyes, sprains & bruises...

Great fun.

Moisture PROBLEMS = EVERYTHING!!

If THIS proves to be a CHRONIC PROBLEM...

Start checking the ICE Shute is properly closed... door seals are good... warm air penetrating the FREEZER space can cause ice to thaw... water to refreeze... and ICE BINS to turn into serious PROBLEM AREAS.

Go with the EASY & CHEAP issues first...

Make sure you temperatures are where you want them...

Comment me back IF YOU ARE stumped... I like refrigerators!

The part where you would press to get ice, well up in side is not releasing the ice and closing back


On mine, using crushed ice will cuase a build up of ice along the shoot. I take off the storage bin and manually open the door cleanining out the shoot. Make sure to check under the removed storage bin before replacing.

Dyson DC07 Clear Bin Flap will not release


I just received my replacement root cyclone in the mail today after waiting in the back-ordered status for three months. I positioned a butter knife in between the rubber gasket on the bottom flap lid and the bottom rim of the clear bin at the farthest point from the hinge and slowly and gently wiggled the knife between until the bottom flap just fell open. I examined the rubber gasket and it survived without injury and the bottom flap seals without any gaps...good luck
