That wrench would have done it.  I had to make the clicking stop before I went craaaaazy, couldn't wait to order a wrench!

Thanks!  I never knew where to look for the anti-sieze stuff, but saw references when I was searching this site for a solution.

 

thanks again!

Already fought my way though the large hold down nuts that hold the base plate in place.  They had two notches and I fit a crescent wrench sticking down into the notches and another wrench to turn them.  A little penetrating oil and they came off with only a little bit of muscle required.

 

Yes, now I am stuck on the ignitors.  I removed the c clips and the springs.  The ignitor was stuck (rusted?) into the base plate.  I tried drilling, but learned ceramic isn't very drill able.  Finally drilled a 1/2" hold into a 2x6 board so the plate would sit flat and pounded the ignitor down from the top.

 

3 of 6 are stuck this way, but only one doesn't work, so starting with that.

 

Assuming the new ignitors fit into the holes (if not, I guess either I try rat tail file or buy new plates at $102 each), any way to avoid sticking again?

Nevermind - I took off the trim piece on the hinge side. It is rubbing on the pivot point. I will file it down so it doesn't touch and all will be fine!

A little dremel work and back to new. Makes me feel silly for ignoring it for so long.

Wiggling the wire at the bottom of the fridge while holding the ice dispense switch on will make the solenoid go on/off... so at minimum I have broken wires.

Was going to start with this:

I see how to remove the front panel on the ice/water dispenser on the freezer door. Does the wire harness just feed up, or will significantly more dis-assembly be required?
