Researched the problem online regarding a stuck icemaker. Found an online video demonstrating how to troubleshoot the problem. From there, I disassembled the icemaker and discovered the icecube tray to be worn (teflon coating flaking). Also, I discovered other parts that appeared to be damaged. I found the individual parts on PartSelect however, PartSelect suggested the entire Icemaker (was cheaper than the individual parts). I purchased the item from PartSelect on Saturday and the parts arrived Tuesday (fast service). I then proceeded to to reverse install the icemaker by transfering items that were not included in the unit, attaching it with three screews, sliding the unit in place, attaching the power cable, attaching the power cable cover, and re-attaching the icemaker cover one the refrigerator. Total time to install was lees than 5 minutes. I now can enjoy ice chilled drinks.
