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.

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

The icemaker stopped working

Removed icemaker and installed the new one. Went from six tiny ice cubes to four big ice cubes. Ice is of a higher quality, and the ice no longer falls out of the bin as the old ice maker's ice had once been prone to doing. A certified epic win on my part.

Water leaking and freezing on the botton of the icemaker mold

Install was done in reverse order of uninstall. The only thing that made this install a bit tricky is that the fill cup on the replacement icemaker was not the same part as on the original. I could have attempted to trim the replacement fill cup but didn't know how well that would work. I instead elected to install the original fill cup onto the new icemaker. This added a bit of time and complexity to the repair but I followed a repair video for when just the ice mold is being replaced. That video told me how to disassemble the ice mold and timer motor which had to be done to in order to replace the fill cup. It's been about 2 weeks since repair was made and the icemaker seems to be working properly.

Had appliance tech diagonise the problem as the ice maker module, and told me the complete ice maker was no longer available and the module alone would cost $460. Found this complete unit online ordered it and watched installation video 4 or 5 times and installed it in less than ten minutes. I had ice in 30 minutes.

I followed the steps in the video posted on webpage describing the part. I watched a sement, performed the steps, and then watched the next segment. I spent more time trying to locate my nut driver set then I spent doing the actual repair.

After viewing the very clear video. Remove the ice maker door by first lifting the door and pressing in on the hinges. Remove the screw in the back lower right of ice maker with a one quarter inch nut driver and lift out the cover to expose the wiring harness. Pull the ice maker unit forward and out and reach behind it to pull out the wiring harness plug. The plug only comes out if you depress the small "push clip" in the center of the harness plug. Turn the old ice maker unit upside down and remove the three screws again with the one quarter inch nut driver to lift off the plastic cover. The wiring harness plug need to be pushed through the plastic housing to remove the plastic cover completely. Reinstall the plastic cover on the new ice maker. Reverse the procedure and install the new ice maker. This is really a simple repair if you watch the video.

Used hair dryer to melt ice so I could remove old ice maker. Used old icemaker Model #2198597 to order new ice maker. New ice maker water funnel that catches water that goes into the ice mode was higher then the older one. Everything else looked ok. I contacted parts select and was told, if I took the new icemaker apart and it didn't work I could not return it. After three phone calls I was told that I could keep the new ice maker and they would refund my money. So I was left with take the new ice maker apart or cut down the funnel. I cut down the funnel and slid the new ice maker into place. My second choice was to take the new ice maker apart & put on the old funnel. Parts select (Susan) has sent me an email that I would get my money back as the part was not correct. I feel bad about this the way it worked out. It took me about 20 minutes to cut the 1/2 inch off the new funnel.

Our ice maker would work a few days then it would freeze up because it ran to much water in. I finally called Parts Select. The gentleman found the correct parts right away and I had them in two days. Took about 30 minutes to change out with a new unit. Only cost about 120 dollars. If I had known it would of been that easy and that cost effective I never would have took the time to un thaw it so many times with the blow dryer. Buy the new one, quick repair and gets rid of the head ache. Besides you will have ice when you need it. Good luck

I accidentally broke the arm that distributes the cubes to the ice bucket about a year ago. Just recently, the malfunction caused the entire thing to freeze up because the frozen cubes weren't cleared from the ice tray.

Remove 1 screw from the cover that hides the wiring harness, pull out the assembly and disconnect it. Swap the bottom mounting tray to the new ice maker and reverse the process. Way easier than I anticipated. No need to freeze your hands in the freezer, once you have the old one out you're working on the counter.
