I Googled the problem and after reading several posting & suggestions decided that the Ice dispenser kit would probably solve the problem. I ordered both parts on the chance that it might be only the micro switch and it was only a $10 part, the ice dispenser kit was $50. The access was really easy and the switch was installed in about 20 minutes but did not solve the problem so I proceeded with the kit. The parts came out fairly easy but our actual set up was slightly different from the video and print instructions. Our model did not have the heating ribbon on the door flap and the little barrel part was permanently attached to the refrigerator so I thought I could be in trouble. Did not realize that we had cracker the lever bracket clip during removal so my husband "brainstormed" a fix. That's what we needed the large head screw and drill for. We drilled the screw into the refrigerator so it holding the spring loaded piece tightly in position. Works fine. I was told my a repairman over the phone that the dispenser was probably not fixable on our model. I saved an expensive service call AND GOT THE DISPENSER WORKING!

My handyman did the repair. It was pretty easy for him. It would have been a real puzzle if we had not watched the video instructions. The new parts were slightly different than the old parts, but they fit perfectly. I thawed the frost buildup around the ice door and the opening of the ice bin with a hair drier, to get the ice to come out properly. Thank you so much for the video!

Job went as per your terrific video. Except that when attempting to retrieve the old heater element the glue on the old door was no long pliable. I had to literally tear the old foam apart to get at the heater element and almost damaged it. Not to worry. It worked out well and all is great. Thanks for the very instructive video.

The hardest part was figuring out how to get the front panel escutcheon panel off. With the putty knife under the bottom flange, you need to push down with some effort on the part of the flange where the drip pan slides in and twist the putty knife to disengage the locking tab. Once the panel is off, the rest of the job is easy with the aid of your video. Everything works like new...thanks.

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.

Changed the Motor Assembly. Wasn't the problem. If I had followed your trouble chart a little farther I would have found out it was the circuit boards. All is well and I might add that yor guide with the parts and video are priceless. Very Happy. Lowell Onstad

April 2012
My ice maker (2001 Whirlpool Gold side by side) stopped making ice. Using the model number (inside fridge, right wall), Google found the partselect website containing diagrams of the entire refrigerator. Using the "freezer liner" and "ice maker" diagrams, I discovered that electronic control boards, control and motor assembly, and water inlet valves could cause the ice maker to stop making ice. Since the LED lamps in the freezer liner were not working (diagnosis described as part of the emitter control board description), I replaced the emitter control boards first. After installation, the lights worked properly, according to the diagnosis, but still no ice. It seemed logical to next replace the control and motor assembly. About two hours after installation, the ice maker produced cubes, and has been working since. Each of the two parts orders from PartSupply came within 3 days, and were the correct parts for my machine. Installation illustrations were accurate and helpful

Ice maker not working

Ordered the part recommended by your site, followed the instructions of the associated video and new ice is piling up right now. My only concern was no action for a time right after the install. Turns out the temperature of the freezer must drop back down to ?? before the ice maker starts to work. I was thinking maybe the electrical connection was not good. I choose to wait a night and see if change would occur. Freezer cooled down and ice maker started.
