I was unable to remove the old part so I threaded the new part in front of it. They both fit within the actuator. Done!

It tool me a while to diagnose the problem but realized the ice dispenser motor coupling had failed. It fooled me for a while because it turned on the motor but could not turn the plastic shaft inside the icemaker. I found the instructions for an almost identical repair on your website. 1)I removed the motor. In my case the wiring harness came right off.2) I turned the coupling by hand and found that although it turned, it was actually loose on the motor shaft. I then knew it was the problem. 3) The threads were apparently cross threated. 4) As a prior user suggested on your site, I used a hacksaw to cut the old coupling off, being careful to not damage the remaining threads. 5) I ordered the new coupling which arrived very quickly 6) I screwed it on to the motor shaft (remember it is a left hand thread). 7) Presto!! My icemaker works. As the other user suggested, I did not have to use washers as spacers. The new coupling was better made than the old one and actually has ~1/8" nut or spacer already welded to the coupling. My thanks to those before me who helped make this a successful repair.

Got the main bolts off and unplugged and removed the ice maker. Had to remove all parts and rebuild it on the new mold. Was more complex than I thought but was able to get it done. Note where everything was as you take it off and you'll do fine.

unit has 3 screws holding it in. The bottom screw must be taken out, but the two screws on the top can just be loosened. The ice maker then can be lifted upward and it will come out. The ice maker has slots that slide over the two screws. Once removed, the electrical connection can be unplugged. The new ice maker comes with electrical wiring,but needs to be removed. Just plug the wiring from the refrigerator in the new icemaker. The unit can then be put back in,sliding the unit over the top two screws and tightening them. Replace bottom screw & you are done. My unit did not start right away,but give it time. Within 2-3 hours it was working and making ice.

It was simple, three screws two at the top and one at the bottom. Then unplug the wires that ran from the fridge to the icemaker. Reverse the pocedure to put in the new icemaker and take a jumper wire and start the cycle, finish. It was a simple exchange. The icemaker was a little expensive, but it works. Thanks partselect.

Not making ice

Ordered part#PS2341899, received in 2 days. Unplugged refrigerator and removed ice cube drawer. Then removed shelf above icemaker. Used 1/4 nutdriver to remove 3 screws holding the icemaker in place. Then unplugged electrical harness from icemaker. To install, just do the reverse and job could be completed within 10 to 15 minutes. It is not necessary to turn water off in back of refrigerator. You should have ice cubes within a couple of hours, however it takes about 24 hours to fill the ice drawer. Probably saved over $150 by doing it myself.

ice cubes freezing together in ice storage bin

I received the new part and then shut off power to refrigerator. I loosened the two top cap screws with 1/4 inch nut driver, removed the cap screw from the bottom bracket of the icemaker. Then using a small blade screw driver pushed in the clip holding the wiring harness and removed the old icemaker. I had to use existing wiring harness because my harness could not be removed from the refrigerator. I installed the new icemaker by reversing the removal of the old icemaker. I turned on the power and had to wait about 4 hours before it make the first batch of ice. After about 12 hours it made only about two dozen cubes of ice. The old icemaker was making about 4 times that much. I figured the new one should be just as fast as the old one so I called PartsSelect and the lady I talked too was agreeable that the new part should work better so she sent me another one and I installed it but it worked the same way, very slow. I checked and rechecked model numbers and part numbers but could not find anything wrong. I put new part alongside the old part and numbers matched. Only difference was that the old part had a black gear box and the new one was white. I decided I would just have to live with a slower icemaker. Its been almost a week since installing the 2nd new one and the bin is still not full, of course we have been using ice from it. I did not adjust the water inlet screw at all. The ice cubes seemed to be the right size. The ladies I talked to at Partselect were very nice and easy to talk to. I would use Partselect again.

I received my new ice maker and got a nut driver and went to the freezer and removed my old ice maker . Then I noticed a problem. The cord on my old ice maker did not have a plug in the middle, my wires seemed to go through the wall of the freezer. I was afraid I would damage it if I tried to pull the wires from the wall, so I called customer service . She said I apparently ordered the wrong part. I had order a $70 unit and she said I needed the $114 kit. I would have to return the unit and order the kit. But she told me to look at the kit description and watch the repair video to see if that would help to see if I thought I could do it myself or get a service person. After looking at the parts and video I realized that the kit would be sending me the exact same unit and a couple of different type wire cords. I decided that all I needed to do was use the wire harness from my freezer and remove the new wire harness from the new ice maker unit. Of course I cut off the power to the refrigerator before pulling the plugs.I just had to loosen the two upper screws and remove the bottom screws, pull out the old unit, unplug the wire harness from the ice maker and removed the new wire harness from the new unit. Then I plugged the old wire into the new unit, slipped the unit back into position being certain that the water tube was in the proper position, tightened the upper screws, replaced the lower screw. I turned the power back on and waited. In a while I had ice again.

Compressor would not stay on . On for about 10 seconds then kick off cheaper try then someone telling you need a new compressor.
