Thanks. It was well worth it. I found another problem though. I think i created it though. I took the ice/water assembly off to clean the paddles and the ice chute. That little plunger thing that closes the ice door was making a creaking noise. Like an idiot I oiled it and pushed it back in and now it won't release the door to close. If I force the door closed it will eventually close halfway but not entirely. This is not what it was doing before I touched it. It was slow to close but it would close. Can it be cleaned or do I need a new one? I think it might be magnetized. Maybe I reversed the polarity?


It's also worth noting that I did not unplug the fridge during this process and shocked the begeezus out of myself messing with the circuit board. Important safety tip. I usually do unplug, religiously even. I just forgot this time. But hey it's ok, the fridge reminded me.  :D

The spring closes the ice door.  The plunger provides resistance so it closes slowly. Kind of like the closer on your front screen door so it doesn't slam shut.  When you oiled it, you made it airtight. Remove it, try to separate it and clean it with soapy water.

Ah, that makes sense. I will take it apart carefully. Don't really want to spend 50 bucks to fix my stupid mistake. lol. It does close but it take a very long time. I will see if I can get the part out completely so I can work on it more easily.

Ok, I have yet another problem. When the door opens or closes and it comes to the part where it goes up or down it makes a popping noise. Was I supposed to grease those closer pieces?
