I would like to replace the ice chute assembly of KitchenAid's KSSS36QDW05 side-by-side built-in refrigerator. From your parts diagram for this appliance, it seems necessary to disassemble the freezer door to remove the ice chute assembly. Is my understanding correct? If so, I may need to pull the fridge out of its niche slightly to remove the hinge-side screws on the freezer's door. How can I pull the fridge out of its niche?

Are you talking about part number 34? I think it just pulls up and out.

Thank you for your reply. I would like to replace the three screws labeled as Part #16 in Diagram #13 that hold the water dispenser lever (Part #20) and ice dispenser lever (Part #17). (The screw to the right of the water dispenser lever seems to be mislabeled as Part #17 instead of #16 in that diagram.) Those three screws on my freezer door are completely rusted out due to slowly dripping water, which may be a separate problem requiring a different fix. It's unfortunate that KitchenAid did not use stainless screws in those locations. I can live with the slow water leak because it will just require a wipe once in a while, but the rusty screws are introducing ugly rust stains onto the plastic parts below.
