The ice maker quit working about 4 years after we purchased this refrigerator. I asked several contractors if they knew what the problem could be. All believed it had something to do with the water line being stopped up. However, when I looked at the water line, it seemed fine. Thankfully when I googled about repairing this refrig, I came upon this website. It stated statistically that the Icemaker assembly part was the problem. Guess what? Replaced it and it works! The repair was a little tedious, so I got my next door neighbor to help. He has a few moments struggling getting it out and the new one in, but overall, it was not too difficult. I believe I could have done it with the video's help but certainly would have taken me longer.

Ice maker quit working, then the fridge & freezer stopped cooling

I actually purchased an ice maker, a combination start device & a run capacitor. I watched the 2 videos which were very helpful, in fact I may not have been able to do this if I had not watched the videos first. It took me step by step. It couldn't have been more simple. I replaced the start device & the run capacitor first just to make sure my fridge would cool again, then when it did, I replaced the ice maker. I saved myself a service call ($59.95) and the labor to replace the ice maker & other parts($140)and that didn't include the parts! By the way I'm female and 71 years old. So if I can do this anyone can.

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.

No ice from ice maker

Parts Select has great videos that describe step-by-step how to perform the repair. I did a sloppy job of diagnosing the problem, and concluded it was the water valve. The actual problems was that the ice maker was not sending a signal to the valve to send water. I could have determined this if I had tested the ice maker using all of the connection points where a jumper wire could be inserted. The ice maker arrived on my doorstep exactly when promised, and was an easy ten-minute fix. My conclusion is that an average person CAN work on their own appliances with a company like PartsSelect to backstop them.

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.

TURN OFF WATER (if not already). Cut (or disconnect filler tube at bottom). Remove faceplate from refrigerator ice/water dispenser area. Remove screw holding metal bracket that holds water tube at filler point. Held metal mounting bracelet and pulled old filler tube out. Fed new filler tube thru bottom (hole is located at bottom of left door at hinge). As tube came out at top, pulled length needed to mount to new mounting bracket. Remounted new bracket (with hose attached) with new screw. Reconnected tube at bottom water line connection. Turn on water.
