First thought it might've been a problem with the inlet valve assembly but it wasn't. Took the factory unit out of the refrigerator and from testing found out one of the wires (black) was busted so splice a new wire in and motor started working but the "arm" would only rotate to a certain point and stop. I then discovered a broken tab inside the motor housing so at the point I just ordered a brand new icemaker unit. When I got it, I just mounted it to the base plate then slid it into the tracks in the refrigerator. The spout where the water comes out was the only tricky part but it is flexible so you just have to push it away and put it back into the tray when the whole unit is inserted. Once inserted, connect the power to the refrigerator, lock the wire cover to the base plate and you should be fine. The new unit started working right away. Whole process took 5 minutes.
