I looked on line to see repair instruction videos on my refrigerator ice maker. When I saw how easy I went to PartSelect and order the part (control and motor assembly). I received the part in two days with the cheapest shipping option. My 33 yr old son was visiting when the delivery was made. After we opened the box, he went to the basement for tools and the rest is history. 10 minutes work and ice a couple of hours later! No problems since.

ice maker not making ice

My ice maker stopped producing ice after our refridgerator was accidently turned off for 4 days. Note: the on off switch in the front does turn the unit off even though the light stays on, why we need easy access to turn off the fridge is beyond me. Regardless, I spent way more time researching the problem then doing the repair. There is 2 things that could be wrong: 1 was the infra red light located on either side of the freezer, called the transmitter/reciever. 2 was the side of the ice maker control panel. Either one or if I had to replace both it would of been less then the cost of a repair man to come to my home. Prices here a good. I started with learning the diagnostic of the ice make which is learned by watching the red light flash. That informed me that it was working ok. Reference: if you hold back the hinged plate and pretend the door is shut the light should flash, flash, pause. This means its working. I went with the other route of the control module on the ice maker. This part came fast like 2 days. I watched the video on the parts web page and it was simple to do. You do have to wait until the temp goes down below 15 degrees in order for the ice maker to kick in. I won't buy another kenmore for I have had plenty of trouble with this one and its bearly 6 years old. I'm Definetly a fan of this website. Good luck DIY ers!

Ice maker just quit working!

After my ice maker just quit working I did some troubleshooting based on the users manual. Found all the electronics to be working fine so I took out the ice maker to see if the water fill tube was frozen, it was not. Next I took off the motor access cover to discover the gear that rotates the spindle was pushed out further on it's drive shaft so it was not meshing with the motor drive gear. I pushed the white gear back on further only to discover the small locking tab on the shaft was broken off allowing the gear to slip outward and become unattached. Had to order a complete motor/gear assembly, installed in 20 minutes and all is fine again. Easy fix.

After watching a YouTube video I was able to determine that my ice sensor was working properly. I was getting water through the door dispenser so I decided to pull the icemaker. First I removed the 2 hex head screws holding the ice door which gave me access to the icemaker. I removed the hex head screw holding the electrical plug cover on the bottom right side and removed it. I then pushed up on a plastic tab on the bottom left side of the ice maker and slid the icemaker out so I could access the electrical connection. After unplugging the electrical harness(plug/socket) I completely removed the icemaker from the freezer. The white square end cover easily pulled off the icemaker exposing the control and motor assembly. After removing the 3 screws holding the assembly on I pulled the assembly off the end of the icemaker. Installation was as simple as assembling the parts in reverse order making sure that the ice delivery male shaft "flat" mated with the "flat" on the motor drive female socket. After reassembly I went for a bike ride and when I returned about 3 hrs. later I was happy to see my icemaker was making ice again. This is actually easier than it sounds if you have any mechanical apptitude whatsoever.

I saw the question listed on your website with your recommended part to repair. Instead of ordering a whole new ice maker I took the chance and ordered the recommended part for repair. I saw the video and when the part came it was really easy to replace. I only wish I had found your website earlier and not gone without ice for as long as I did. Thanks.

Unpluged the refrigerator. Removed the cover on the control unit by inserting a screw driver under the metal clips. Removed the three screws frrom the front of the control unit. Pulled toward the back of the refrigerator on the metal loop which turns the icemaker on and off and it came loose where it goes into the control unit. Wiggled the unit and it came free. place the new unit in approximately the right position. Reached into the icemaker and moved the ice eject leavers so the shaft would enter the control unit with the flat side of the ejector in the right position. Gently pushed the control unit into its place and aligned the screw holes. Replaced the three screws. Inserted the wire shut off loop into the hole on the back of the control unit housing. Pluged in the electric. The ice maker worked.

Pulled out the icemaker. Switched out the Motor Assembly (so easy) and woke up the next morning with ice. Our ice dispenser wasn't working either. This repair inspired me to take the ice dispenser apart and I found that the lever arm wasn't touching the contact when pressed. We now have ice and a working ice despenser. Oh yeah--my wife was so impressed. The part came in on time and it was very very easy to replace.

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.
