seloniod failed and ice maker only made crushed ice

  • Customer: Alan from Newark DE
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 2 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
Removed screw onder on left side of ice maker shelf. Then removed shelf while disconnecting the wires behind. Removed selonoid and yolk and simply reinstalled in reverse order. The customer service was great because I first ordered the wrong part and was easily returned and correct part sent. If you are ordering and have questions call them. If you sense your agent doesnt have the full knowkedge you need I would ask for another one. This is why my original part was wrong. They handled my problem and I was pleased.

Ice Maker Repair

Took my husband and son to remove the auger because it seemed to be frozen somewhat. After a little work, the auger broke loose and the repair was a quick process. I thoroughly enjoy the fact that the part was correct and I my ice maker was fixed for very little money and I did not have to buy a new refrigerator! I was not sure that we could get the replacement part because we are not the original owner of the refrigerator. So it has some age, but still works strong!

Original drive ring broke

The most time-consuming part was removing the screws. First, remove the 8 screws that attaches the ice bin to the front cover. This will free up the auger enough to pull up the back end where the drive ring is held in place. The ring just pops right out. The only thing I recommend is as long as you have the bin out (and empty), go ahead and give it a good wash. Make sure it is thoroughly dry so that no ice freezes to the moving parts.

Ice cubes position makes crushed ice

After installing the new solenoid and hooking it up as per the wiring diagram still the ice maker crushes the ice cubes in both "crushed ice" and "ice cubes" pisition (solenoid would not produce the magnetic field). Instead it is getting very hot.

So, i need an additinal advise.

Remove 2 screws, and GENTLY remove tray. There are two motors on the back side that are wired in to the back of the fridge. Unplug the harness and the whole assembly will come out. Take note of the way the plunger comes out, if not, it will take a little more time to figure out. reassemble motors onto new tray then GENTLY slide into postion, with one hand plug in wiring harness then seat tray into position and reinstall screws. Done.

To replace the broken drive coupling on the motor end of the auger requires sliding the ice bin out of the freezer section of the refrigerator. Remove the ice cubes and let it thaw out for a few minutes. Remove five screws holding the front face on the ice bin to remove the ice auger. slip the new drive coupling over the end of the auger. reassemble and replace the face plate with the five screws. Slide the ice bin back in the freezer. Less than fifteen minutes it was finished.
