Hi all, new here and figured this would be a good place to start.

We have 3 small dents in the ice/water dispenser door of our new refrigerator. I went to the site below and also referenced the manual to try to find what part number it is and all. Is this something where you can replace just the stainless steel panel or will the whole door have to be replaced? Any ideas on what the best course of action is here, local or online? I have attached a photo

In full disclosure: this is something that my teenage soon did in being negligent and reckless big time so replacing it is also going to be a life lesson for him in taking responsibility for his actions. Won't go in the full details, but let's just say it wasn't an accident.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi,

The door only comes with outer and inner parts toegther.
Many parts will have to come off the old one and be reinstalled on the new door panal.

Thank you. So for those two links, what is the difference between the Door Assembly and the Dor-Fip?
