Stopped making ice

I have a side-by-side fridge/freezer, so taking out the icemaker is a bit more tricky than the video shows. I just unscrewed a nut in the back right of the mechanism (this nut is holding the icemaker in place as well as the plug cover). Once that was off it slid out pretty easy. Because the freezer is so narrow, it's a bit difficult to get it back in, but all told the repair took me about 20 minutes. Replacing this part fixed the icemaker immediately and we're so glad to have our on demand ice back! Ladies, don't be afraid of a little appliance repair!

Researched the problem on the internet. Identified the icemaker control and motor assembly as the most likely culprit. Ordered a new one. Arrived in two days. Installed it in about 15 minutes. Had ice 3 hours later.

I removed the ice maker, which consist of three 1/4 inch screws to install the water fill cup and bearing. One must loosen the front panel of ice maker to install the fill cup which consist of two standard screws, slide forward enough to install new fill cup. The removal of the Icemaker control was simple, using #2 phillips screwdriver and three screws. Unplug the control and install the new one, replace the three screws and cover. Reinstall the ice maker and within one hour cubes were dropping in the bin. I saved a lot of money repairing myself, which more than covers the shipping cost. Shipping was fast, two days.

I had to make sure the electronic beam was working properly, which it was (steady beam if you press in the side plastic flap. I also had to make sure the water valve for the icemaker was working properly as well, which it was by switching the lead wires on the valve (water dispenser wire to ice maker valve, and hitting water dispenser paddle and hearing water flow to the ice maker). After that, I knew it was the icemaker motor. Removed three screws with a socket, disconnected wire harness (had to use pliers to pull it apart), pulled out entire icemaker unit. Loosened three screws on motor control unit to remove it from icemaker unit, then inserted new motor control unit and re-screwed the 3 screws. Then I pu tthe entire icemaker unit back in the freezer, connected wire harness, re-inserted three screws and was finished. I then waited for one hour, went to check ice maker and I had ice cubes forming in the tray.

The comments from PartSelect were 50/50 that it would be the motor on the icemaker. We bought the motor which came 4 days leter and followed the installation instructions in the video. We started getting ice about 2 hours after the installation!

Turn the unit OFF - Removed one hex head screw on the bottom of the ice maker, removed the cable cover and unplugged. Removed front cover & Slide the icemaker out. Removed control cover and removed the three phillips head screws to the controller. Put the new controller back on with the three phillips head screws, pushed the cover back over the controller. Plugged the unit back in, then slide it back in the tracks, put the cable cover back on and installed the hex head screw, popped the front cover back on and turned the unit ON - DONE!

My dad and I worked together. The video helped but it was a little more complicated. If you can't find the water supply, remove the filter and water should stop, that's what we did. We had to remove the freezer door for access to the ice maker. It was tricky taking the icemaker off and getting it back on. Replacing the motor was easy, just as shown in the video. Just like others have said, within an hour of the repair the ice starting coming!

I removed the ice maker unit completely from the freezer, following a Utube repair video that I found. I originally thought it was just the control board that was defective, because on examination, found a burned-out copper trace on the board, as well as a burned-out plastic connection point. Installing the new parts was a breeze. This icemaker is pretty foolproof, with plastic tabs that line up with the housing. a matter of lining up the screw holes was all that was necessary. Only problem I had was attaching a plastic cover that shields the electrical connection from the water. Once all was installed, I had to wait overnight for the icemaker to make ice. We've had ice ever since! Thank you Partsselect for very courteous and fast service!

A local appliance parts distributor suggested that I go on line to get help figuring out the problem. The motor assembly was 51% probability. I ordered the part and followed the instructions given at the time of purchase. In a very short time ice was dropping.

I ordered both icemaker motor assembly and the emitter and receiver (sensors)as I was uncertain as to which was the culprit. We couldn't unplug the frige as it is heavy, so we shut the circuit breaker until we were done with the repair. The icemaker motor was a bit clumsy to remove. My refrigerator was entirely different than the one on the video I viewed, as I have a side by side and the video was of an entirely different model. The video's icemaker was not as clumsy to work with. My husband was a little apprehensive so I rode shot gun and assisted and he did great. He did change the motor first and probably should have waited to see if it worked. He didn't wait, and went ahead and changed the sensors....that was a breeze. We waited about 2 hours and lo and behold once the freezer went down to 14 degrees, the icemaker began it's magic and we had a full supply of ice within 24 hours. So, I saved quite a bit of cash by purchasing the parts I needed at Parts Select and eliminated the repairman's expensive fee. Very happy with end results.
