Refrigerator is 4 year old. Icemaker quite working after about a year. Called a repair man that fixed it for about $300. Unfortunately, it quit working again after a year. Found the PartSelect website and read the other repair stories so I decided to take a shot at doing it myself. Man am I glad I did.

The repair stories were very helpful. I thought the problem would either be the motor or the optical sensor so I purchased both.

I decided to replace the optical sensor first since the LED light was flashing. I unplugged the refrigerator and removed the three screws holding the plastic cover plates on the left and right side of the freezer. Unplugged the wire harnesses and plugged into the new boards. Replaced the screws and in a couple minutes I heard the icemaker fill with water. 30 minutes later we had ice.

Using PartSelect saved me $200. I will definitely use PartSelect in the future.
