Kenmore refrigerator problem with ice dispenser model 106.58962702

6 posts in this topic

Hi gang, long time since I've been here but in need of professional advice. Have a friend that has the aforementioned Kenmore fridge and the ice dispenser won't hold ice as the flapper door isn't doing the right thing.  I pulled it apart and it appears one of the formed jaws on the ice dispenser housing is broken and the flapper is just sitting there with no support. Tried servall city and the parts place this site supports and servall said to call Sears. Called them, they're telling me the 'housing' is part of the door, not sold separately, and is nearly $600 delivered. That's a lot of dough to repair a 4 year old fridge, thought I'd float it by the pros here to see if anyone has any suggestions. 

 

In this drawing, it's item number 1:  http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/K0802004-00008.png

 

Any helpful hints or suggestions? Thanks in advance...

$600? Tell them they've lost their collective minds. This is a known issue and several methods of repair. http://appliantology.org/topic/39786-whirlpool-refrigerator-broken-tab-ice-dispenser-door-kit/ ... in short, using part no 8201756 or repaired with ingenuity courtesy of Sensei Certifiedtech
