I read all these other stories at this site describing the same problem I was having with my ice maker. So I ordered the same part. I used a nut driver to remove the ice maker unit from the freezer compartment. Used a screwdriver to remove the motor assembly, then just put the new one on. The hardest part was getting the on/off bar back on the new assembly, but that wasn,t that bad. Turned it on and checked back in fifteen minutes to find water in the trough!
I think what quit working was the heat element that warms the ice enough for the paddles to pry the ice pieces from the trough. And then that may have ruined the gears. This is just my best guess from what I observed originally.
GREAT WEB SITE! I saved a lot of money. I'll definitely remember you guys.
