The old ice maker's protective finish flaked off causing some cubes to stick to the mold and consequently water overflow into the bin below causing ice cubes to fuse into large ice globes. After reading customrs' reviews, the replacement with new icemeker from PartSelect was easy. I unpluged the fridge, loosend two screws on top of ice maker and removed one screw on the bottom, removed old ice maker and inserted the new one in its place. I reused the old wireing harness for new ice maker. It started producing ice within 2 hours and it works flowlessly since. Thank you PartSelect for sending the correct part and informative repair hints on your webside.
