Took ice tray out, removed plastic decorative cover, remove the four nuts under the cover, slide out the ice auger assembly as one piece. do not take auger assembly apart. I repaired mine once, difficult without a schematic picture, many parts, replaced everything back into the new ice bucket. Easy job!

My ice maker was driping water on the ice cubes

It was really pretty simple. You get to the back of the frig, open a panel and the valve is right there. The instructions where clear on what to do, even though the new valve was different water line connections. It was spelled out what to do. Works great and all the parts supply places would have to ordered it anyway, so I saved $ and got the valve in 30 hours to boot. Thanks

Light switch had broken off and so the light would not go on when the door was opened. Vegetable crisper drawer had broken along the sides.

We unplugged the refrigerator, used a knife to pry out the old switch. Cut the extra prong off of the new switch and connected the switch to the wire connectors. Slid the switch back into place plugged the refrigerator back into the outlet and . . . . . . Wah, lah, the light and switch worked again. We washed and then simply slid the vegetable crisper into the holder and replaced the one that had broken. This was a really great experience and it was quick and easy to fix on our own.!

Ice maker eitehr wouldn't make ice, or made odd shaped cubes

  • Customer: J. Bradley from Wellsville, NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 4 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
First, I shut off the water going to the refrigerator, then removed the ice bin. Then I loosened the two screws on the top of the ice maker (the one toward the front was a little tricky, since you can't see it at all), then removed the screw that fastens the lower bracket to the side of the frig. Then I lifted up on it slightly to remove it from the two upper screws, then unplugged the wiring harness from the side of the refrigerator and lifted the whole unit out of the frig.

I then removed the plastic cover on the front of the ice maker, pressed on the tab to remove the wiring harness from the old ice maker, and installed it on the new ice maker. I then removed the metal arm from the old ice maker and installed it on the new unit as well. The last part that I moved from the old ice maker to the new one was the lower bracket, as the bracket on the new ice maker was bent during shipping.

Once those parts were swapped, I put the plastic cover on the new ice maker, plugged the wiring harness back into the side of the frig, routed the fill tube into the back on the ice maker assembly, and set the unit back on the two upper screws. I then put the screw back in the lower bracket, tightened the two upper screws, and then put the ice bin back in and turned the water back on. After a couple of hours, I threw out the first couple of batches of ice and it is now working as it had in the past.

I also noticed, when looking at the old ice maker, that the black plastic coating was coming off the ice cube tray, so it was a good time to be replacing it anyway. Overall, a very easy job (I was prepared for swearing, parts being slightly off, etc.) and it would have been a shame to have paid someone to do it.

Auger in the ice tray not turning

  • Customer: Edward from Florance, MT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 4 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
Removed ice container, replaced end cap that holds Auger shaft that connects to shaft that turns the Auger. End cap plastic nubs wear where it makes contact to the turning stub. Removing a few screws on the front of ice container allows the Auger shaft to slide forward and away from the end cap. Maneuver end cap from shaft, replace using same maneuver and that is it.
Pretty easy, even for a novice like me. A $6.00 end cap verses the whole assembly at around $70.00
I'm pleased.......

Ice Bucket cracked in back of unit

  • Customer: Gregg from Clive, IA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 4 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
First, I removed the bucket and drained all the ice from it. Then I took the ice bucket out and lifted off the cover of it which exposed the teeth that grind up the ice. I then removed these in succession and placed on my table so I could make sure I put back together appropriately. Once I had the bucket with everything off of it, I replaced and threaded the auger back through it so I could attach the end cap to it. Once that was in place, I put the parts back on the way I took them off. It really was a painless process and saved a ton of money versus calling a repair person. Definitely will use the service again. Very prompt delivery as had the parts 2-3 days after ordered. Well done.

Ice maker just stopped making ice

  • Customer: Thomas from Valencia, PA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 4 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
This was the third icemaker replaced since January 1999. Improvement need to be made in the design of the icemaker so that more than 2-3 years of life is available.
The most difficult part was disconnecting the power plug in the back of the icemaker. You must squeeze the upper and lower tabs together and pull out at the same time to disconnect. Once this is done, take out one nut head screw, lift up on the icemaker and remove from the hanger. Be careful that you don't break the plastic tabs on the hangers. Replace new icemaker in reverse, feed water supply where it must go in the back, resnap onto hangers, replace the nut head screw and snap in the power plug. It took about 2 hours before the icemaker began making ice. It has been working fine ever since. PS. I saved about $200.00 over having a repairman come in and replace the unit.

Broken ice bucket and broken helix end cap.

  • Customer: Gary from Loreauville, LA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 6 of 10 people found this instruction helpful
I pulled off the plastic shield from the front of the ice bucket. This exposed the two screws that I needed to remove to disassemble the ice crusher mechanism. Once the screws were removed, I was able to remove the helix and replace the end cap that was broken and place it in the new ice bucket. If I would have known it was this easy, I would have changed this out a year ago, instead of doing without crushed ice through the door for so long. Thanks PartSelect. com! I am a customer for life!

I simply needed to replace the drawer. Customer service Really Is Customer Service at this company! The young lady with whom I spoke on the phone was courteous, knowledgeable and efficient. She knew what I neeeded from my rather inept description. I was told the drawer would arrive in 10 to 12 days, but I actually received it in 3!!!!

We broke the vegetable drawer. So every time we tried to open it, the drawer would fall out. It was upsetting because the frig was pretty new and we use the drawer a lot.

We pulled out the old drawer and set it on the counter to get to room temperature. My husband was afraid if we tried to pull off the white handle when it was cold the plastice might be too brittle and break. When it was room temp, we pulled off the handle and slippped it on the new drawer and slid it into the frig. It was great to have it working again and like new!
