Turn off power. Remove freezer shelves. Remove six screws on the back of the freezer. Slide out metal piece. Pop off plastic fan piece. Remove motor mount by squeezing metal bracket. Take off wires... Do reverse... Attach wires to new motor, install motor (may have to also use the clear rubber piece from the old motor which keeps the motor in place). Push fan blade back on. Screw in metal plate, turn on power. Good videos on YouTube as well.

I took the tray out of ice maker, removed the screws holding the drum assembly. Dismantling the drum assembly careful as possible and placing the new drum on place of broken one, it still took twice to get it workable. Probably the next time I will follow the instructions a little more closely.

ice cubes freezing together in ice storage bin

  • Customer: Maxie from Bridge City, TX
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

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.

We suspected the thermostat assembly was the problem. We reviewed the video provided by PartSelect and accessed the thermostat assembly. To ensure the thermostat assembly was likely the culprit, we used a multimeter to test it. We ordered the assembly from PartSelect and were pleasantly surprised at the speedy delivery. Using the same video, we replaced the assembly and put the refrigerator back together. Thank you so much for saving us money we didn't have for the repairman. We will be ordering again soon to repair a leaky waterline and ice maker.
