Motor stopped working and was leaking

  • Customer: christine from horsham PA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

At first I just ordered a new motor and followed the instructions on the video . The new motor started working overtime but no water was being delivered to the tray . Ordered a new tray and re-installed. Working fine now. At first the ice was sticking, but that seems to have stopped now. It may be better to pull the ice maker out and check to see if there is damage to the tray before ordering. That way it could save the time of not doing things twice.

Icemaker inoperable

Replaced Control and Motor on the basis that most respondents found this unit to be at fault when the icemaker failed. Unfortunately, this wasn't the problem. Sudsequently, I replaced the electrionic boards which did fix the system. It would have been helpful (and less expensive) if the PatrsSelect website provided more help with problem diagnosis. Otherwise, the website is great!

It was a very simple repair. The only frustration is that all I needed was a small plastic part on the motor assembly but had to buy the entire assembly. Glad that I found the assembly much cheaper on your site, but wish I could have just bought the small plastic part.

Just as the video described except there was a rubber fill tube hanging down from the top of the freezer that made it a little more difficult to install the new icemaker(I just had to bend it up and hope it didnt break)

after power outage stopped making ice

This is a built-in refer. I just turned of the power by flippig the breaker to the refer in electrical panel. Then I removed the white cover to the ice maker and the metal arm no tools required.Then I removed the 3 screws and removed the motor & control assembly then replaced it with the new one. Easy put 3 screws back in snapped cover back on and reinstalled metal arm flipped breaker back on done 15 minute or less. (note: It's helpfull to use a small mirror to see the back side of control if you don't remove ice maker from refer to reinstall metal arm.)Also in my case everything was working now but it didn't produce ice? I looked in the rear of ice maker where the water supply comes in and it was frozen. (little trough or shute.)I carefully chipped ice out with ice pick came out easy. Started making ice and filled up over night everything working great. Final note: (if water freezes up in shute again it's the water valve that needs replacing. I was told that it means it's leaking.) Hope this is helps.

ice maker quit working

I tried to put in the model ice maker sent to me but it was not an exact match to the one I was replacing. The water fill cup on the upper right side was too tall to fit over the rubber fill hose so I had to take the old ice maker apart and swap it with the new cup. Then I installed the new maker but it did not work over night. I took it back out and disassembled it and saw condensation on the electric motor housing which had turned to ice. I figured that if there was ice on the outside then there was probably some on the inside as well. I used a hair dryer to evaporate the ice/moisture and then re-installed the unit. It has worked fine ever since. I do not think that I needed the entire ice maker unit but just the timer motor. I could have saved some money and time if I had known that the motor was available by it's self. The shipping was fast for the unit but look over the unit that you are replacing and make sure the picture of the new unit is IDENTICAL to it. Watch the video PartSelect offers and it will help you a lot.

I thought I would have to have a serviceman replace the unit. After watching your video, I thought I would try it. It was much easier than I had imagined. If it wasn't for your video, I probably wouldn't have tried it. Thanks for your help. I will definitely check with your company first, for the next repair odyssey.

I removed the on/off bail wire. I then removed the cap over the motor/control panel. I removed the 3 screws, lifted old unit out, installed new unit and then put everything back together. I had ice within 12 hours and it's run like a top since. I am a 64 y/o widow & I try to repair everything myself to save money. I'm very pleased with Part Select & will recommend them to everyone. Awesome shipping time too. Ordered on Thurs. Received on Fri. Fixed on Friday afternoon!
