1. Viewed the video furnished (very helpful) 2. Turned off circuit breaker (avoids having to move the refrigerator), took my chances and left the water on 3. Removed the ice bin 4. Removed bottom retention screw, loosened the top two screws 5. Lifted the old ice maker free of top two screws 6. Used the bright flashlight to see how to release the rear electrical connection 7. Placed old unit on toweling, removed the electrical harness, the bail and the lower retention offset bracket (needed because the Kenmore's bottom retention is toward the center of the ice maker) and reinstalled them on new unit, taking care to maintain the original harness clip method 8. Carried the new unit to the refrig and installed the rear harness connector, then lifted it to mount on the top screws, forced it down to correct position, installed lower screw and tightened all three. 9. Placed bail in 'Operate' position, Installed bin and turned on the power. 10. Next morning, success!

be sure the power cable is NOT plugged into an electrical outlet - removed the cover on the bottom rear of the refrigerator - using a flat blade screw driver pry the cover off the side of the compressor - remove the old relay - remove the wires from the old relay and install them on the new relay in the same location - install the new relay on the compressor connections - snap the cover back on the compressor - replace the cover - power the refrigerator on - the compressor should start and run normally

Ice maker was leaking into the cube tray

Once I received the new icemaker, I removed the old one by loosening the two upper screws and removing the lower. The wire connector came out easily. The wire and the bale from the old unit had to be transferred to the new unit. Then the new unit was reinstalled and the wire plugged back in. It took several hours for the cubes to begin dropping.

Cooling coils frozen solid preventing cold air from circulating in freezer and refrigerator compartments.

I removed the cover that protects the freezing tubes, they were frozen solid,used my heat gun to melt away the ice, being very careful not to burn any wires. Then I removed the old heating coils,connected the new ones, replaced the cover and I was done. The thing that took the most time was melting the ice, you cant do it in a hurry because you may burn wires

I have never before seen a bulb with the filament intact not light. If the bulb's filament seems intact, screw the bulb into a known working lamp and see if it lights. When screwing it back into the socket in the fridge, it takes a bit of extra effort to fully seat (until it does, it won't light!). For replacing the switch, I unplugged the unit, used a paint scraper and worked it under the switch bezel from the right side. A bit of moxie, and the switch came out. The replacement switch had a different spade contact spacing than the original. I used a pair of scissors to cut the rubber bridge between the two switch wire connectors so I could connect to the new switch. In the end, it turned out to be the bulb. NOTE: The Model TC18KL is _not_ listed! What I finally found that the number "P7803211WL" on the sticker is actually a manufacturing code. Found this out by searching, and Sears' part search came up with matches.

I went on line and viewed the video. It looked so easy I ordered the new ice maker. Having the information I was able to take apart the old one and view the problem. By the time the new part arrived I was experienced with the installation. I was shocked when the new ice maker arrived within 1 day. I completed the installation without a hitch, I was delighted with the ease of installation and the operation of the new iace maker.Thanks again...Ray

I removed contents of freezer as this was a bottom unit. I had to remove freezer drawers/door to easily access ice maker which was located in the back of unit,wasnt a problem.I did however take a hair dryer to water tube as it froze up with about an 6 inch tube of ice that finally slid down. Connected unit and had ice within an hour or so and a full tray within 24 hrs. Second ice maker in little over a year...Video very helpful, saved 100 bucks by doing myself. Part arrived fast, great job!

We ordered a PartSelect PS2121513 ice maker. I was concerned that there was no instructions shipped with the unit. Fortunately, PartSelect had an online video that guided me through the process. It wasn't that complex really. The only time I felt totally dumb was when using my nut driver to remove the bottom bracket. I couldn't figure out why there was no 1/4" socket with my set, so I used a small socket wrench instead. I finally figured out that the driver was already a 1/4", without a socket in it. After that it was easy. Slid the ice maker up a little to free it from the top mounting screws. Pulled it outward a bit to gain access to the connector at the back of the freezer, then squeezed the two sides of the connector and out it came. I popped the plastic cover off the existing device and then removed the connector as instructed in the video. I also removed the bale (as per the video). I put the connector harness, plastic cover and bale on the new ice maker and put it back in, this time using the nut driver on the bottom bracket :-). My only concern after that was that it didn't seem to be working. I had no idea that it needed some time to get cold before it would work. After about an hour, it filled with water and began making ice. Success.

Ice Bin Drive Ring replacement

  • Customer: George from Pleasaton CA
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Easy repair - Don't over complicate it. 1) Flip up ice bar to stop making new ice. 2) Pull out the complete ice bin/tray. 3) shut freezer door while you work on the ice bin. 4) All you need to do is remove the 4 screws holding the ice bin holding tray to the front of the Ice cutting section in the front. 5) Screw drive can then be pulled forward to remove the old/broken white drive cap. Just replace the White Drive ring, put the drive screw back into the ice bin tray and re-install the 4 screws. 6) When re-inserting the bin, you may have to twist the screw drive slightly to re-align with the motor bracket in the back of the freezer. Suggestion: throw out old ice because if it is wet or slightly melted, when you put it back in the freezer the ice will freeze/clump together into a large ice clump; not cubes. Also dry out the ice bin so there is no water to freeze up or create a new jam when the ice bin now re-freezes.
