First of all, I do not consider myself very handy. Most of my simple home repair projects include at least 2 trips to the local hardware store and take twice as long as they probably should. So if I can do this anyone can. For once, rather than just blindly throw new parts at a problem I did check the water pressure to the icemaker first and then even tested the icemaker with a multi-tester to determine what was wrong. I had $5.00 mulit-tester in my workbench but had never actually used it before, so I found step by step instructions on another website on how to test the motor and it turned out that one of the circuits in the main motor was in fact bad. Since the motor was around $80.00 dollars and the Whole unit that's inside your freezer is about $120.00 I decided it was best to just go ahead and replace the entire unit rather than just the motor. From what I saw online normally replacing an Ice maker is fairly simple. Remove 3 screws swap the prewired plug along with the metal arm then just reinstall it. Somehow whenever I try a home repair it's never that simple. First of all, our freezer is on the bottom so removing the screws holding the ice maker meant that I had to climb over, around and under the freezer shelves in order to get to the ice maker itself. Also one of the screws is not visible from the front so I had to hold a mirror in one hand while I tried loosening the screw with the other. Since the metal arm that turns off the ice maker is not included in the replacement it had to be moved over. Of course it was stuck, so it did take a little time to get it loose because I was being careful not to bend it and have to order another one. Finally installing the new icemaker meant once again that i was climbing over under and around the basket in the bottom level freezer. There is probably an easy way to remove the entire drawer but I couldn't find the release tabs so when just pulling harder on the drawer didn't work, I thought it best to just work around it. Still all in all, not a difficult job, just a little time consuming. The guy in the video did the swap in about 6 minutes, it took me about 45.

Removed the storage bins. Removed the whole shelf, remove the glass part.(clean everything while you are at it, which is why it took 15-30 minutes) Lift out old rail and replace it with the new, reinstall shelf and glass. If you choose to not to clean, just take out the glass shelf, replace rail and put it back in. .

Installation was really easy since the replacement part was identical to the OEM part. Removed the three mounting screws with a nut driver. This allows one to remove the icemaker from the wall and disconnect the wire harness plug from the icemaker. I never unplugged the harness from the rear wall of the refrigerator. Put the new icemaker in place, making sure to place the water fill tube in the proper hole. Plugged the wire harness into the new icemaker and tightened the three mounting screws. The icemaker worked perfectly from then on with clean ice cubes and no leaks.

Required about 20 minutes with hair dryer to melt ice from coils. Ohmed out heater at 30 ohms. Noted (as others have) that defrost thermostat was bulged out on one end. Reassembled and ordered replacement thermostat. Received part in three days. Kit contained all parts required for replacement - wires were color coded for easy replacement. Cut both brown and orange wires and used supplied crimp connectors to splice in new thermostat (will need crimpers). Reassembled unit. Actual time to replace part was about 15 minutes. Plastic grill has indications on both sides where to insert a screwdriver to release tabs holding it in place (there is also a tab in the center which is not marked).

No Cooling in Freezer and Refrigerator Compartments

This site is great! They've helped me with three other appliance repairs. The parts came in a day (ahead of schedule) and I went to work. First I changed the Run Capacitor - still no cooling. So I used the very impressive and very helpful video instructions to replace the Overload Relay Combination, except for one hick-up - my frig had a special connector to the old Overload Relay Combo that would fit the new one. I simply snipped the two wires to remove it, and then put single connectors that I happened to have on the wires. (By the way, as I removed the old Relay, I could hear things rattling around inside of it, so I knew it was shot.) I then paid very close attention to which terminals each color wire was connected to in the video. And, voila, the refrigerator is working perfectly. Many thanks PartSelect!

Refrigerator stopped cooling compressor did not cycle

unplug power! Remove the screws from lower panel on back of refrigerator. Lift wire mount out of back panel. Capacitor is mounted directly to the relay and overload switch located on the left side of the compressor. Remove the spring clip holding the capacitor in place and pull the old capacitor out. Plug in new capacitor and replace spring clip. Use vacuum to remove dust from drip pan and wipe fan blades clean. Replace wire into slot on back panel and replace screws. Remove front coil cover below freezer door. vacuum dust off coils and replace cover. Plug refrigerator in and enjoy cold beverages. Relay and overload kit were not required for this repair.

Refrigerator Compartment Not Getting Cold

I have an Amana fridge on top freezer drawer on bottom unit don't have the model # handy. First unplug the unit. Then remove the cover on the refridge compartment cooling control knob complete with the lights and all. There is a video on part select that shows removing both this cover and the rear cold air inlet cover but if you are careful you don't have to remove the rear cover. That was done to allow removal of the plastic pulley belt that goes from the control knob at the front to the actuator gear at the back. I just popped the front cover and let it hang gently from the belt and then simply unscrewed the timer (screws on the underside so you have to snap the light cover off first). Then you can very quickly unplug the old timer and plug in the new one, reinstall the screws and pop the whole thing back into the roof of the fridge. Not sure if that was the only problem so I opted to replace the thermostat as well. This is in the freezer compartment behind the back panel. I had the ice maker on the left. First you want to remove the drawers and Door of the freezer leave the drawer slides in you can simply lift the drawers and door front up and out. Then push the slides back in. Next you have to get the ice maker out of the way. Just remove the three screws holding to the wall of the freezer and unplug the electric line. It has a plastic plug that disconnects easily. When you get it out the water fill hose will be sticking through the back wall of the freezer. Now just remove the 4 screws at the corners of the back freezer wall panel. Then you can grab the panel top and bottom center and pull it. It will bend enough to spring clear of the drawer slides on either side. Mine was frozen in place and needed some heating with a hair dryer. Once it let go it came out easily. Next I had to defrost the whole coil behind it was solid with ice including the thermostat to be replace. The thermostat was in the upper right corner. Looked exactly like the one in the kit. It is clipped to the copper refrigeration line. Just unclip it. It has two wires color coded brown and orange. Can't screw this up. The replacement just had stripped end wires. Would have been nice to have electrical plugs to make replacement a plug and play but not. Just cut the wires to the old one leaving a little to work with in the freezer. You can always cut it shorter if you need to. Then just strip the wires in the freezer and wire nut the new one in with the wire nuts included and wrap with electrical tape then reclip the new thermostat to the copper cooling line same place it was before and go backwards to put everything back in and plug the thing in.That's it. It will take a while to cool down and you won't here the compressor right away some type of time delay I guess. Its been a week now and works fine. Much cheaper than having a guy come to the house. Think of it this way once your done your beer can get cold again!
