Ice maker would not make ice or fill up

Followed the video instructions posted below the product. Its a tight area to work in but it can be done. It did not immediately start making ice. I waited and waited.... 3 hrs 4 hrs still not filling up or making ice. Finally I decided to pour some water in the tray and see if it would freeze ice and dump it. It did and immediately started to fill up on its own after that! Its been working perfectly ever since! So dont be alarmed if yours doesnt work immediately and try pouring some water in it if yours doesnt being working within several hrs. I am happy I was able to do this myself and save repair man costs. Its just not work the cost they charge for older appliances.

ice maker will not make ice

Installed new fill valve in less than 30 minutes and waited for 24-8 hours for results to no avail. Ice maker mechanism was shot and still would not work. Went to Lowes and bought entire ice maker add on kit for my model ice box and installed in 30 minutes and have been making ice ever since. Your 99% cure rate was 100% incorrect. Save the time and effort and go to a big box store and just get a new ice maker. By the way, it only costs about $20 more to do that.

Removed old ice maker by loosening two retention screws and disconnection the power connecting clip. Installed replacement ice maker using same retention screws, attached the power cord to existing connection. Total time to repair was less than 15 minutes. We now have ice again!!! This is the second part I have ordered from Part Select and each time the parts and delivery exceeded my expectations. Much easier than searching for these parts in your local appliance store. Thank you Parts Select.

This is the 2nd ice maker replace in the past 20 months. This installation was easier following the experience of the first replacement. The instructions are well written. The pictures or illustrations are difficult. The most challenging part of the installation is routing and fastening the wire harness. The illustration was not helpful. Overall, this is a repair most DIYers should be able to accomplish.

I first thought the defroster heater broke - took the back wall of the freezer off and cooling fins were fine. Then took the defroster timer out and opened it up. The contacts were badly burnt so the compressor and fan ran during only part of the cooling cycle. Replacing the timer took less than 5 minutes - turn off the power, remove one screw to take out the control box, cut the ground wire (new timer housing is plastic and does not have a ground connection), remove two screws to unmount the timer, unplug the old timer, plug in the new timer, fasten with two screws, put the control unit in and fasten with one screw, turn power back on.

I ordered the replacement part on-line. When I received the part, I realized it was the wrong part. I contacted PartSelect and worked with the service representative, Julie H. She was excellent!! She determined that I had used an incorrect model number, and then she directed me to where I could find the correct number. She gave me clear directions on how to return the incorrect piece, and then sent me a UPS label to cover the shipping costs. Julie H was at all times, professional, friendly and very helpful!! Regards, Barry Halper

Remove 2 screws, unplug connector to remove broken ice maker. Plug replacement ice maker in, then screw in place with the two screws. It took longer to describe and type then it did to do the job.

Looked up troubleshooting info on your web site. Decided to replace the defrost timer. Ordered it using Paypal. Received the Shipment in about 1.5 days in Rural NC. Watched Your Video, cut off power to the fridge, removed the top self and unbolted the panel, removed the defective defrost timer, installed the new one and re-installed the panel and top shelf. Set the timer to defrost to check the operation (looked inside the freezer to see that the defroster was glowing red - it was) waited about twenty minutes to ensure that the fridge started cooling again. Fixed!

Instructions from partselect were very clear and probable cause made it easy to narrow things down. I have the manual for the refrigerator that shows the location of the defrost timer. Very surprised that it turned out to be a cheap and easy fix.
