Had a 1999 Kitchenaid Superba refrigerator that quit making ice. Based on online research, my icemaker's problem could have been either the icemaker itself or the dual water valve. I opted to try the icemaker replacement first after watching the helpful installation video. The only issue I had that made the repair the slightest bit difficult was that bolt-headed screws were used to secure the icemaker to the fridge wall rather than Phillips and the one nearest the door can't be seen while trying to loosen it. It only took an extra ten minutes to overcome this obstacle (maybe 20 minutes total). After replacing the icemaker, I thought the water valve must have been the problem after all since the unit did not immediately start filling with water. However, once the unit chilled down, it worked perfectly.
