Assumed a broken ice maker motor, since I tried to force a harvest (jumped T-H) and it did not work, and it is 6 years old. Ice maker went in easy, harvested 3 or so times and quit. Forced another harvest (with the bucket on the door, you have to remove the ice maker to jump the points (PITA)wish they could make the jump points more accessible, like on the old units, mounted on the side). worked about 5 times and quit. Next step is the optics, which, as an old computer guy I find it hard to believe that a circuit board is bad intermittently. As an aside, the door jam gets hot, when I believe it is during harvest time. I vacuumed the coils, but it still heats up... only intermittently, coincidence???

Noisy/Failing Condenser Fan

Unplugged the refridgerator and pulled the rear cover. Had to take the fan blade off in order to get at the screws holding the existing motor in place. Removed the old fan. Pressing the new plastic fan onto the new motor shaft was a little more effort than expected, but I guess it won't come off. I have large hands so mounting the new unit was a little bit of a challenge getting the small screws started. Once the three screws were tightened all I had to do is plug the electrical connector in and replace the rear cover. I was happy that the existing electrical connector was the right one for the new motor too, and that I didn't have to use the provided wire harness. All in all the repair went pretty well.

Door to the ice shute broken with worn out parts.

Took two screwdrivers and inserted bottom of bezel pryed up and out gently. Removed (4) screws and unpluged (3) electronic plugs removing the circuit board. After you remove bezel & circuit board you have a chance to see what you are doing and get to the problem area with more ease. Remove old parts and reverse it putting the new parts. Process is very simple just pay attention to the order everything was removed. On my frig one of the plastic ears that hold the pin which holds the spring and door was broke. The piece I needed was no longer avaliable. I had to use a piece of the plastic from the old parts I removed, drilled a hole the size of the pin in it and glued it to the broken off ear. Put everything back together and I am pleased to say that everything works fine! So you might need to go a little MacGyver on it. All in all very simple fix.

Ice door hinge was broke and not letting door close building up ice between door and ice maker.

Installation was extremely easy for a novice. However, I previously replaced the icemaker control and motor assembly. That did not solve the problem. I now replaced the electronic control boards - emitter and receiver. The operational test shows the emitter and receiver are functioning properly yet the ice maker still does not work.

The ice maker was not making ice

The ice maker was replaced easily with the help of the repair video. However, that did not fix the problem. With further investigation I found that the more common problem was the emitter boards. I replaced the new ice maker assembly with the old one and ordered the emitter boards. Partselect allow easy return of the new ice maker and I received the emitter boards and easily replaced them and ice is making as I type. Great experience and supper helpful repair videos.

Ice maker auger not moving

  • Customer: Tom from Santa Rsa Beach FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy

very simple to remove 2 screws inside door at the top of the ice maker auger shaft, I then pulled straight up on the shaft which disenged it from the motor. Installed the new shaft by placing it in the same position as the one just removed, replaced the plastic cover with the 2 screws, and everything worked fine. It was obviouse looking at the old shaft that it's corners were rounded and that caused it to slip

Unit did not go in as easily as the video showed.

In the freezer on the upper left hand side is a small spr ing loaded door that opens when you open the door and closes when the ice maker container makes contact with it.The video did not show the worker making contact with the door or even addressing the potential problem of the door continually staying open as you try to fit the ice maker into the space vertically as the videe showes. What happened is that I almost broke the door off just trying to fit the maker into its tracks. I finally taped the door closed so I could fit the maker in. I used painters blue tape and so far it is still working. The ice maker is working also. Either make the installer aware of how to temporarily stop the door from inteferring with the install or just have him tape it before he starts to install the new maker.

Pulled off front. Detached wires without getting electrocuted. Marked them first so I'd know where they go. Pushed up the thing with wires so I could see the flap door. It had a heat thing in the flap which my replacement part didn't have, so I had to pull it out of the broken flap and insert in the new flap. Snapped flap door in place. Attached black thing loop to white thing. DIdn't use the spring or the white thing. Reattached wires and put on front piece. Everything now works. No more frost in the freezer!!!
