ice agitator was stuck and wouldn't dispense ice

  • Customer: Mary from Hartsburg MO
  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I've been messing around with the old part for literally years. Every now and then the metal agitator rod would spin out of the plastic cup that joins it to the freezer. I'd have to disassemble it and try to get it back into alignment. This time nothing worked, so I ordered a new assembly. It arrived even more promptly than PartSelect predicted and it installed in five minutes. I couldn't be happier!

Un Plug the refrigerator. Remove the lower shelves and shelf brackets on the freezer side of my side-by-side refrigerator. Removed the 5 screws on the lower back cover plate and removed the cover. The thermostat is on the top of the coils, it snaps around the coil, carefully slide it off. Cut the two wires to the thermostat near the end. splice the new thermostat to the wires in the refrigerator using wire nuts or wire clamps, either wire can got to either connection, snap the thermostat on the top of the coils, replace the cover, replace the shelve brackets and shelves, plug it in.

Ice Maker not making ice

This was about 10 time easier than I had expected (I'm in my 30s, a mom). I put this off for almost a year groaning that I would have to spend tons of money on a repair man. It was really no big deal and took under 30 minutes. I used the video from PartsSelect, and it was right on. I was initially worried because the description from the website said that the new ice maker didn't come with the 'harness" and I had no idea what that was. Its just the little set of wires that easy unclips from the old unit and pops right into the new unit. Mine was reusable, so pretty easy. The only minor issue I had was that the new bracket didn't line up comepletely with the hole in the fridge where the screw went in, but I solved that with adding a skinny washer. Would definetly recommend any common-sensed person to do this repair yourself.

Ice maker was leaking

I couldn't believe how easy it was since I am not the handiest guy. All it look was to switch over the wires and screw it to the inside of the freezer. I was back in business.

Icemaker had been sluggish for a while. We had to keep the wire (bale) in the off position for half hour or so, then put it back in the down position. After a few months of doing this, it stopped making ice altogether.

Shut off water and unplug fridge. Remove ice drawer. Unscrew one short nut underneath icemaker, and the two longer ones holding it to the wall of the freezer. Now remove white cover. It just needed a little jiggling w a flat head screwdriver to loosen it. Now you can see where the wire harness is connected, use the same flathead to depress the plastic pin holding it in place, and slide it out. Remove the wire harness from the metal clip on side of icemaker. Now you should be holding the old icemaker in your hands. Remove the bale carefully. Now install the bale into the new icemaker, while making sure it's in the 'down' or 'on' position. Bring the new icemaker into position, gently snap the wire harness into place, sliding the wire into the clip like it originally was. Fasten the three screws again. Then, finally, snap the white cover back into place. Slide the ice drawer back into position, turn on the water, plug the fridge back in and wait 30-45 minutes for your first batch of new ice cubes.

The ice in the ice maker would freeze into a solid block. Upon inspection I realized the ice maker was leaking water into the ice holder which was then freezing solid. Three tray for the ice maker was slightly rusted and caused the water to drip.

I watched the video on how to change the ice maker, very easily explained, and removed the old in about 10 minutes.After seeing how the old one came out it only took five minutes to install the new one. The appliance repaircompany wanted$120 just to diagnose the problem,i bought the part from partselect for$104 total. This is the forth time I've used this site and saved a ton of money.

Rmoval and replacement is not at all complicated. (1)Reach behind and to the left of the icemaker and release the power plug. There is a release snap on th side of the plug. (2)Using a 1/4" nut driver remove the screw holding the icemaker to the "L" bracket at the bottom of the icemaker. (3)Using the nut driver loosen two self taping screws holding the top of the icemaker to the side of the freezer compartment.(4)Lift up on the icemaker to remove it. (5)remove the white plastic cover from the front of the icemaker (pry out at the bottom) and snap it onto the new icemaker. (6)Remove the wire sensor arm from the old icemaker and place it on the new one. (7) Remove the cable assembly (plug) from the old icemaker and fasten it to the new one. (8)Secure the new icemaker in place using the reverse order as the removal. The icemaker will take a little longer to make its first batch of ice as it will have to attain its proper operating temp (0 degrees to 2 degrees F).

Removed ice bucket from my freezer and poured ice out into a small ice chest. Unsnapped access door assembly from old ice bucket and then removed the 4 screws holding the front of the auger assembly. (Note that 2 screws have points and 2 have flat ends. The ones with flat ends are at the top and extend into the ice bucket area where you could contact them with your hand if you reached into the ice bucket area.) I screwed the auger assembly onto the front of the ice bucket and then snapped the front access door assembly onto the new ice bucket. Refilled with ice from ice chest and replaced ice bucket into my freezer.

Since I had more than one issue, I decided to replace the entire ice maker. All I needed was a nut driver and it took 5 minutes. Three hex screws and unplug the wire harness and the whole unit came out. I changed the harness over and installed the new unit. I left for work and came home to ICE. It was Great!!!
