Popped out the old filter from the refrigerator bottom. Removed new filter from the box and pulled off the end caps. Put the end cap on the new filter, aligned the filter( it will only go in one way) with alignment slides and pushed the filter in until I heard it (click) into place. Pushed in the water dispenser tab for a few seconds, but nothing happened. So I waited until the next day and pushed the dispenser in and water flowed out. Repeated this process until the water ran clear. Turned the ice maker back on and a few hours later ice was popping out. Wife's happy, I'm a hero!

Absolutely incredible to purchase replacement Parts at Part Select.

I tried Sears Internet for simple replacement parts per descriptions. They sent me wrong parts that were not even close to requested order. Sears delivered wrong parts and difficulty in returning their wrong parts.

However, our next order at Shop PartSelect.com parts were sent exactly as described on website. This company is incredible as with photos of needed parts were delivered and perfect replacement.

Suggestion is DO NOT ORDER FROM SEARS REPLACEMENTS.

Shop PartSelect.com

They have the best price know parts desired.

Thanks
Gary

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.

Ice mold was leaking causing all the ice to freeze into one chunk.

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.

Removed the old unit and replaced it with the new one. There were only 3 small screws holding this part to the side of the freezer wall.

The old ice maker's protective finish flaked off causing some cubes to stick to the mold and consequently water overflow into the bin below causing ice cubes to fuse into large ice globes.

I disconnected power plug. Pulled ice bin and flip down ice conpartment lid out. Using nutdriver removed screws. My wiring harness is permanently connected to side back wall of frig. so I disconnected wiring plug from ice maker. Installed orig. wire bracket/arm to new ice maker. Connected new ice maker to original wiring plug. Screwed ice maker back in. Had ice a few hours later. It took 2 days for ice bin to refill completely. Saved money by replacing myself vs multiple service tech. trips, service fee, and part cost. Part arrived 3 days after I placed my online order. Thank you PartSelect you have a customer for life.
