Removed ice maker from fridge. Removed motor assembly (3) screws on cover, and (2) screws inside. Removed mold (3 screws on bottom) and replaced everything in reverse order. Note: Turned ice maker off for several days while waiting for parts. The water line on this particular model will freeze inside the freezer if ice isn't made for several hours/days. You will have to defrost to begin making ice again.

The ice stripper cracked from freezing.

I called the local Amana repair man, wanted $150 for a new ice maker because they could not get the part I needed. Found Partsselect.com and the part cost $17 with shipping. They saved me over $100. The repair was very easy too, just removed a couple of screws.

Thanks,
Matt

Ice maker stopped working

  • Difficulty: Really easy

Removed the control and motor assembly by removing the plastic cover and three screws. Shut off the power to the refrigerator while removing the control and motor assembly (and also when installing the new one). Tested the motor using an AC power cord. The motor had apparently failed. Ordered the repair part and installed it taking care that the motor drive shaft and shut off arm were correctly aligned. The icemaker began to work properly when power was restored. The cost of this repair was about half the cost of replacing the entire icemaker.

Ice maker not making ice.

I determined that the plastic lever inside the icemaker was broken and I found the part easaly. It was farelly inexpensive considering the important job the ice maker does, so I order it and paid for the standard, 5-8 days delivery. To my surprise, it was delivered (to my neighbors house thanks to the delivery person) the next day. Once Berry the neighbor delivered it to my house, 15 minutes later ice was being made. I had to remove one screw and losen two on top of the icemaker, disconnect power and remove the icemaker. I don't think that this step was even required but I wanted to remove all of the old ice from the maker without thawing out the freezer. Replacing the part itself also required removal of three screws. I think that almost anyone can do this easily (with or without Berry).

Water Fill Cup Broke

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The Ice maker unit had to be removed and the shaft had to also be removed, which required dis-assembling the motor drive. The thickness of the shaft and the bearing fill cup prevents it from simply pushing it in place. Other than that I have Ice.

Ice maker did not make ice. Everything else worked.

Note: I thought the motor was bad, it was actually one of the gears. Order the motor-gear module. You will probably receive the motor-gear module if you order the motor only.

I removed the hex bolt on the right side of the ice maker. Removed the whole assembly from the refrigerator, diconnecting the cable as I pulled it out. I use a philips screw driver to remove the three scews holding the motor gear assembly. I pulled off the motor/gear module; installed the new motor gear assembly. Reinstalled the ice maker. Easy!

I just removed the unit and replaced the mold/'heater with the new one and re-installed. It was very easy and didn't have to turn off the refer. or empty the frozen food.
However , there were not instruction that came with the mold/heater unit. I had no problem but other do-in-uselfers may need some basic instructons

Unplugged the frig., removed three screws, pulled the motor out, then slid the new motor in. Within a few hours I had ice again. The only problem was I felt the motor was still hooked to something after I took out the screws. Just be firm and pull it out, the pressure you feel is the thin bar that slides into the back of it to monitor the level of ice in the tray. It was REALLY easy.

First I did the diagnostics and thought the water valve wasn't functioning so I replaced that, but it still didn't make ice. So I went on line and found the first thing to fix should have been the module and motor assembly. It was a real easy fix because I had pulled the ice maker before to investigate what was wrong. I just removed one screw and disconnected the electrical. There were four screws holding the motor assembly on. So I put the new motor on and had ice in 30 mnutes.
