Once it was determined that the icemaker was actually the problem two really good things happened. One, there was a video on the repair process on the web site. I wish I had viewed it before I removed the icemaker because it would have saved me about 10 minutes in that process. Second, I order the part on Friday morning around 10:00 a.m. and then went to the store to buy bag ice to get us through the weekend. On Saturday morning, the part was at my door ... yep, less than 24 hours! Everything was back in working order in about 15 minutes, part of that was my wife taking advantage of the shelf being out to do a little extra cleaning and reorganizing. Thanks for the video and excellent service. Ron Coulter, Celebration, FL

ice maker stopped working

I took out the icemaker to see if I could find a problem and the ice tray coating was peeling, the tray heater was corroded and so was the motor assembly. I matched the picture on the site to my icemaker, checked the dimensions they gave and it was identical so I ordered it. Install was pretty easy and the icemaker started working within minutes. Thanks!

I followed the instructions given by your demonstration. I took the back screw off, dropped the wire plastic cover. I then used the screwdriver to push the two (2)slots in and pulled the icemaker out and then unplugged it. I believe unplugging it was a little hard because the plug was pretty well sealed together and frozen. After finally getting the plug apart I then pulled the icemaker fully out. After pulling the cover off and putting it on the new one per your demonstration, I then inserted it back in. I stuck my hand behind the icemaker and bent the hose with my index finger and thumb so that it would drop into the water tray and then slid the icemaker back in until it snapped back in the slots. I then put the plug cover back on and reinserted the screw. I forgot to mention taking the front cover off before removing the icemake and reinserting it after replacing the icemaker. I would highly suggest customers follow your demonstration, it paid off well. I watched it about 8 times before I received the icemaker in the mail. Oh by the way water started flowing into the icemaker with 4 minutes and ice started coming out in about 30 minutes. As the icemaker got colder it started producing the ice faster. It's a sweet sound hearing the ice drop into the container.

Freezer was cold refrigerator was too warm.

I knew that if my freezer temp seemed Ok and my refrigerator was too warm that I should be looking to see if my evaporative fan was working. It blows the cold air from the freezer through to the refrigerator. Turns out that the unit was working and I figured out by viewing other customer experiences there was a diffuser door that opens and closes with a thermostat that was not operating. Replaced it and everything is fine.

Side by side refrigerator coils were frozen rendering the freezer and fridge running at high temp.

I discovered the coupler was broken, so I went online to search for a repair. I found the part number for the coupler and washer. I used the short online video that shows step by step how to fix it. It was very easy and now the ice maker dispenses ice again! I researched Sears and your site, and your site with shipping was less expense than Sears. I called Sears and they didn't have the part in stock anywhere close to where I live to pick up, so with their price and shipping, your site was just a couple dollars cheaper. I receive the part very quickly after ordering.

Removed the door (3 bolts on top). Removed the old plastic door closing cam on the bottom. Installed the new one. It was too tall (probably my fault), so I trimmed it with garden shears (it was a tubular piece of plastic). If you do this, be very careful, as the shears cut through the plastic MUCH easier than I thought. Popped the new one on, re-secured the door, and it works great now. Thank you partselect!

Tried to follow video but was unable to see it. Audio was fine. Removal was the difficult part because area is frozen. Placed a warm towel over the icemaker and it came out easily. The folks at Parts Select were knowledgeable, sent me the correct part when Sears no longer supported the Kenmore Elite. Ice flowing from the appliance.
