First decision was to deduce whether the solonoid that turns off and on the water to the ice maker was working. The water was working on the door so I gambled that the solonoid was working and ordered a new ice maker (correct decision). Second decision was whether to fix the ice maker or buy a new one. Buying the entire new ice maker was less expensive than the parts. In addition, the old ice maker was 15 years old so I decided to replace the entire ice maker. Ordering it was super easy and it arrived the next day! I watched the entire installation movie on the web and thought it would be a straight shoot but it wasn't. None of the wire harnesses that came with the new ice maker fit the old connector so I had to remove the old harness and install it on the new machine. Then I had to take the mounting bracket off of both the old and new ice makers and interchange them so it fit in the threaded holes in my refrigerator wall. Not difficult work - I advise to not throw out parts until all is operational. It worked on the first try! It was a relatively pleasant experience.
