The small arm in the tray for the ice maker stopped moving. I put hot water in there to see if anything was clogging up the line or the tray, but nothing was. I then pushed on the arm and it moved pretty easily. So I took off the front cover and the motor; I saw that the plastic piece connecting to the gear was broken. So I realigned and replaced the motor. Ice maker is working like a champ again.

Removed (snap on)removed screw, and ice dispencer side (door and Pin) You have to assemble to reinstall (not easy to install while assembled) Install the pivot pin the rest of the way with the new spring mounted and when unit is almost in place, install the pivot the rest of the way, install tension hold downs that old both the water and ice dispenser shafts, reinstall cover, reconnect wiring and test, I had to remove the plunger because the water wouldn't shut off fast enough. Unit works great now.

Unplugged it for a day listened to the ice melting on the inside and plug it in again. Decreased the temperature settings and it now seems to work fine. I will save the part in case I ever need it in the future.

Turn off power to the frig. Remove the shelves and back brackets from the freezer, then with a 1/4" nut driver remove the nuts holding the rear metal panel in place. Once removed the defrost thermostat is right in front of you. You will have to clip the wires from the old t-stat because they are in a harness. Once clipped, strip the wires back, wire in the new t-stat, add wire nuts and put it all back together. Very easy job to do, works great. Thanks Parts Select, Mike.

Based on research done on your site, I concluded that my problems was the icemaker control. The video showed me exactly what to do. During removal, I dropped the unit and broke the water fill cup. Ordered the control unit (as well as a replacement for the broken cup). Installed in about ten minutes. You really can't mess up. It only goes in one way! The next day, bucket was full of ice. Thanks for all the help. I figured I saved $200.00 on the cost of a technician call.

Freezer stopped making ice cubes.

  • Customer: Mark from Williamstown NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy

At first I thought the problem ws with the water valve. I tested it and got a normal reading. Just as Partselect suggested, it was the Icemaker Control and Motor Assembly. Once I removed the old one I noticed it was dry rotted on the plastic stem that turns the wheel. I tried to replace it while it was still in the freezer. That didnt work very well so I ended up taking the whole ice maker out as shown in the video. Once everything was back together and plugged in I heard that sweet sound of water flowing down the chute into the ice maker. About 4 days later the ice bucket was full to the top with ice.
