I have a sears side by side refrig (model 106.5182200) with water and ice on the door. The clear plastic ice guide slips down keeping the flap to stay open.  I guess you have to remove the dispendes front cover but do not see any screws. How do you get the face cover off?Is it just something broken on the ice guide or something more.

More than likely it's more than the ice guide that broken. look under neath the bottom edge of the dispenser front and you will see 2 slots, one on each end. Insert a flat head screwdriver into the slot and twist. It will feel like your going to break it  but you wont (not saying that it can't ;)). Once released, lift up and unplug the harness then you can remove the couple 1/4" screws holding in the switch housing. Focus your attention where the pin that goes through the flapper and through the plastic molded tabs that are made into the dispenser housing. Are one of the tabs broken off? If so, you will have to have a special kit in order to repair. Let us know if you get stuck or need help in anyway.

Also double check that model#

Thanks I did recheck the model# guess my age is catching up with me even with glasses. The correct # is 106.51582200. What is the special kit you are referring to and what parts would it replace?

Thanks again I will be test my skill later tomorrow.

If you find that the plastic tabs are broken you will need this kit.

Ice Chute Door Kit Link (broken tabs)




Standard Ice Chute kit for your unit.

Ice Chute Kit Link (standard)




if you just need the ice guide

Ice Guide Link

Well I did get the thedispenser cover off, no problem removed the 4 screws to remove the housing but it appears to be glued on. I used a sharpened putty knife to go around the seal  however it is still attached. Now I can see the the guts and the clear ice guide appears to be the problem. It looks like there are suppose to be 3 tabs, with 2 on the top and 1 on the bottom. I have only 1 on the top andd 1 on the bottom. To replace the chute can I do this without pulling the rest of the unit out? If not HELP. :?

Yes, no need to tear down any further, just remove the old ice guide and snap in the new one (carefully), those tabs break pretty easy.
