Icemaker shaft did not turn to dispense ice

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.

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.

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.

Ice maker quit working and had a bussing sound

  • Customer: Pamela from Chandler AZ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Three screws takes the old one off, 2 on top and 1 on bottom. Only problem I couldn't get the wiring harness off. I had my son look at it and he ended up cutting his hand and getting stitches(bracket that holds wiring harness is sharp), but he did get it off. I went online at parts select to ask how to get wiring harness off, but they wanted $30 to tell me. When I got the new one I could see that there is a bump on wiring harness connection that goes into a hole on ice maker, push that down and it comes off easily. Also after I installed the new one it didn't work the first day, I opened it up and looked for a button to push but didn't find any. I also pulled the lever up and turned it off and then back on, it starting working after that I'm not sure what worked but it is working now. Doesn't come with any instructions.

Ice Maker was overflowing into ice bin when filling

After first replacing the water valve, the issue with our ice maker remained so we ordered the ice maker unit after watching the video at partselect.com. It couldn't have been easier. I had the whole unit replaced in less than 10 mins. It took about an hour for it to cycle and fill, so my husband thought it wasn't working, but I wanted to let it be and see what happened...and an hour later I heard it fill. It's been about 2 weeks and it's working perfectly. Partselect is officially our 'go-to' site from now on!!

Replaced ice maker. Ice maker was cheaper if you used parts from old ice maker! Very easy to install! Ice bin auger was a bit more involved, but with the attached video underneath the explanation of the part, it was soooo easy to replace! Now we have ice again! Thank you so much!
