Ice bucket was cracked due to cube getting stuck between auger and bucket

Repair was simple. Only problem was the screw holes weren't completely drilled through. This caused a little damage to the new ice bucket while driving the screws. Damage is minimal and ice bucket works.

Ice Maker worked sporadically and then started dropping water into bin, make a large chunk.

Was very happy with the experience of using your company. The man on the phone was helpful. The icemaker shipping was only about $7 and got here in a couple of days. I liked the video, and then including a link to the video with the on-line confirmation. Was not quite sure it was the icemaker or the metering valve on the back, as the latter would make a little grinding noise, but the symptoms matched the dumping of water into the bin. After replacing, everything is working well. The only difficulty was the wire harness plugs into the other side of the back of the box than in the video and I found it a little difficult to route the wires correctly as they seemed too short. But a little trial and error solved that. My model is freezer on the bottom and I didn't notice that the little detachable funnel wasn't quite seated and it was necessary to reinstall, making sure the funnel stayed in place correctly. That was my own error. My overall experience was excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend PartSelect to anyone with an icemaker problem. I'm only sorry I lived with a recalcitrant ice maker for a couple of years before finally acting on it. I am glad I found your website! Lee in Texas

Simple replacement of the icemaker solved the problem. I suspect the icemaker was overfilling resulting in water flowing into the ice reservoir.

ice agitator was stuck and wouldn't dispense ice

  • Customer: Mary from Hartsburg, MO
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • 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.
