    Default Kenmore Coldspot Ice Door Broken

    Model Number: 106.57577791
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: 6-10 years

    Jake,

    The ice door does not close allowing warm air to enter into the freezer. What parts would I need and how do I go about replacing the door.

    I know I have to take the front panel off to start but I am having trouble getting it off without braking it. I don't see any slots on the bottom of the panel.

    Your help is greatly appreciated

    Hi Larry,

    The front dispenser frame assembly just pops off, look underneath the bottom of the lower dispenser frame, you will see 2 small slots, you then use a screwdriver to pop it off.

    If you don't see the 2 small slots, then remove your trip tray and you should see a couple of screws you can remove.

    You'll need a new ice dispenser door kit.

    Here's the ice dispenser door kit for your model you can order:

    Default Kenmore Coldspot Ice Door Support Broken

    I am having trouble getting the spring #4 and Pin #5 out. I have tried sliding the pin with pliers but the spring is so tight. I could try cutting the spring with pliers if I can get the pliers up there. Any ideas.

    Also the new kit does not have the Heater Ribbon as it said on the parts details from AppliancePartsPros.com that the heater is no longer needed. Do I just unplug it from the control panel and leave it out??

    Thanks again for all your help!

    Just keep trying Larry, you will get it. Try to push the pin out with a small pocket screwdriver. Or pry it out with something.

    Yes.

    Smile Thank you Jake

    Jake,

    Got the ice door replaced on the Kenmore Coldspot. Would not have even attempted it if it wasn't for the support and service you provide. The whole family is happy that it is fixed.

    Thanks again,

    Best regards,

    Larry Tippner
