Hello Pieter van Deventer,

Start by putting your make & model on a search line...

add the word "SPARES" out of deference to your
(non USA) location (here we say parts (and even AMAZON carries these "sweepers")).

Hit return and a ist of part RETAILERS will magically appear.

Hope you find what your are looking for...

Over here the HEAD of the ice makers are typically sold as a unit and depending on the MAKE & MODEL start at about $100 USA

My son shoved a spoon into the icemaker bucket and it's jammed. Now neither the ice maker nor the water dispenser works. I have emptied the ice from the bucket and stopped it from making ice. I can see the...


Hi,

My ice dispenser lever stopped working. I took the face plate off by first removing the tray, grabbing the bottom face plate and pulling straight back. I found that the internal switch was displaced because the retention pins (plastic) were broken. This caused the switch to be set back from the dispenser arm. I'm ordering a new bracket that holds the switches. Hope this helps.

also I found that the internal switch was displaced because the retention pins (plastic) were broken. This caused the switch to be set back from the dispenser arm. Bad bad design!
Instead, I replaced the pins with screws.... never coming apart again. Now how long before the Ice side breaks?!?!?!?!

I had this same problem.
Whirlpool Side-by-Side Model#: ED20DFXEB01

I removed the front panel from the water/ice dispenser - just to make sure the problem was not with any of the connections there. Just put a meter on the wires to verify current. All was good.

I pulled the refrigerator out and removed the valve assembly for the water/ice dispenser. Since the ice was working and the water was not, I simply swapped the connections on the solenoids. Sure enough, when I pressed the switch to dispense water, it came through the ice maker. Answer: bad solenoid on the water side...

I happen to live close to a commercial appliance store so I took the valve assembly (along with the model number for the fridge) over there and ordered a new one. $50 and 24hrs later, I'm good to go. In my case the part I needed was part# D7742204 (technically an Amana part but was the exact same thing) and it's a very easy part to swap out on my own.
If you are still curious as to how to remove the face plate... There are 2 small slots on the bottom of the faceplate. Pry out on those and the plate slides up and off from there.

Fitting single towbar electrics, Hyundai Coupe 2.0 2004 (Tiburon)


Hi There. Im not sure where you are but this is the sequence for the UK< Hope it helps.
here are the 7 cable locations and pin numbers.
Pin 1 Yellow L/H Direction Indicator
Pin 2 Blue Rear Fog Lamps
Pin 3 White Earth Return
Pin 4 Green R/H Direction Indicator
Pin 5 Brown R/H Tail & No, Plate Light
Pin 6 Red Stop Lamps
Pin 7 Black L/H Tail & No, Plate Lights

I found the easiest way to locate the correct wires in the loom is to turn on the lights required and use a circuit tester and splice into the main loom where you have enough wire to play with. Try not to cut the loom as it only causes more problems with bad connections and joins.(
Good Luck

I have a Whirlpool side by side with an ice dispenser. The little door that closes on the outside opening of the ice dispenser has come loose from its bracket. I cannot get to it to reattach it, or even...


if it has become loose, the pin that holds the disp door came be put back into place. if the plastic tab that holds the pin into place broke, you will need to have a kit installed that has a metal bracket. that should be done by a tech. hope this helps.

WHIRLPOOL ICEMAKER DESPENCER STOPPED WORKING.


It is either the motor going bad or the switch at the ice lever. The little micro switch that is activated by the ice lever is likely held in place by two little, week, plastic pins. They break easily. After one pin breaks, the switch can still be close by the lever, but it is hit and miss. It is a ****** to replace the bracket unless you have some experiance. One other long shot would be the freezer door light switch that shuts power off to the dispenser when the door is open.

It sounds like the piece that holds the little ice door in place with a pin. If this is broken the only way to fix it is with a kit that Whirlpool has released. The part number for it is 8201756 and most appliance parts stores will have it. It contains a metal bracket that replaces the tabs as well as a new door assembly and instructions on how to install it. Hope this helps!

Kenmore 110.20904990 top load washer


ignore those cups with the pins those pins were the travel lock devices and the cotters were attached to the yellow lanyard that whoever first put the unit into service pulled off of the back of the unit per instuctions. this pulled the cotters out of the pins which then fell into those cups. the cotters came out with the lanyard and are long gone. the not spinning is due to something in the clutch not working properly. the moving to one side is caused by one of the pads that the suspension plate rides on being missing. you can look at the diagram on sears website at the parts look up and see were the pads go and find out what the suspension plate is and such good luck!

Ice chute door


THE FACE PLATE OF THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY SHOULD HAVE A SLOT ON THE BOTTOM CORNERS. INSERT A LARGE BLADED SCREW DRIVER IN THE SLOTS AND TWIST. IT WILL SNAP AND YOU WILL THINK YOU HAVE BROKEN IT BUT IT DIDN'T. ONCE THE BOTTOM IS RELEASED, PICK UP ON THE FACE PLATE TO DISENGAGE IT FROM THE TOP OF THE ASSEMBLY. IF YOUR DOOR FELL OFF, THE CHANCES ARE THAT A PLASTIC LOOP BROKE OFF THAT THE HINGE PIN SLIDES INTO. A FIX KIT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED TO REPAIR THIS PROBLEM. BEST TO BE INSTALLED BY A FACTORY AUTHORIZED SERVICER. IT CAN BE DIFFICULT.
I HAVE INSTALLED TWO OF THEM MYSELF.

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.
