After watching a YouTube video I was able to determine that my ice sensor was working properly. I was getting water through the door dispenser so I decided to pull the icemaker. First I removed the 2 hex head screws holding the ice door which gave me access to the icemaker. I removed the hex head screw holding the electrical plug cover on the bottom right side and removed it. I then pushed up on a plastic tab on the bottom left side of the ice maker and slid the icemaker out so I could access the electrical connection. After unplugging the electrical harness(plug/socket) I completely removed the icemaker from the freezer. The white square end cover easily pulled off the icemaker exposing the control and motor assembly. After removing the 3 screws holding the assembly on I pulled the assembly off the end of the icemaker. Installation was as simple as assembling the parts in reverse order making sure that the ice delivery male shaft "flat" mated with the "flat" on the motor drive female socket. After reassembly I went for a bike ride and when I returned about 3 hrs. later I was happy to see my icemaker was making ice again. This is actually easier than it sounds if you have any mechanical apptitude whatsoever.

I saw the question listed on your website with your recommended part to repair. Instead of ordering a whole new ice maker I took the chance and ordered the recommended part for repair. I saw the video and when the part came it was really easy to replace. I only wish I had found your website earlier and not gone without ice for as long as I did. Thanks.

After my ice maker just quit working I did some troubleshooting based on the users manual. Found all the electronics to be working fine so I took out the ice maker to see if the water fill tube was frozen, it was not. Next I took off the motor access cover to discover the gear that rotates the spindle was pushed out further on it's drive shaft so it was not meshing with the motor drive gear. I pushed the white gear back on further only to discover the small locking tab on the shaft was broken off allowing the gear to slip outward and become unattached. Had to order a complete motor/gear assembly, installed in 20 minutes and all is fine again. Easy fix.

PS328747 Icemaker and Water Dispenser Dual Inlet Valve was purchased from Parts Select. My wife, Sandy, watched install video provided by Parts Select on their website. Sandy used plywood to protect our hard wood floor. She pulled out the refrigerator (She did need my help to do this task). Unplugged the refrigerator. I turned off water line in the basement. Sandy followed the video to the tee. Fifteen minutes later the part was installed. The ice maker tray was quickly filled with water. Ice cubes quickly were made. My wife is uniquely talented. Last winter, she remodeled two bathrooms in our Naples home replacing all the fixtures, vanities, flooring, etc. My wife can do almost any task. Many years ago, I had a leaking radiator and a broken arm at the same time. What did she do--she removed the radiator from the car, took it the repair, and reinstalled the repaired radiator. Sandy plays tennis, golf, brige, hikes, sings in the church choir, works at theater as a red coat, and at 62 years of age, she tackled another item on her bucket list in January 2012. Sandy's first recital is Saturday--she is quiet an accomplished pianist already. I could relate many other stories about her but the most important one is that this beautiful woman has been wife for 43 years and the mother of our two beautiful daughters, Jessica and Holly.

The ice maker stopped making ice. Cold water was still available at the freezer door dispenser which seemed to isolate the problem to the ice maker control board/motor. My ice making unit was not identical to the one in the video, but close. After disconnecting the power, I was able to replace the control board/motor without having to remove the entire ice making unit. Total time for repair was under 15 minutes.

Undid the bolts to the ice maker, unplugged it and took it out of the freezer. Removed the cover, unplugged the motor and unscrewed the motor from the casing. To install new motor screw it into the casing, plug it in and replace the cover.

First of all, I am a female. So anyone can do this.I simple watched your video. Made the repair very simple. I was surprised that it really worked. I couldn't understand that if the door would still eject ice, why it wouldn't make the ice. It's the same motor. Anyway, It worked and I thank you very much. Very satisfied.

I watched the video so I had an idea of what to do. It was pretty straightforward. Turn off the water, take out the screws, line everything up, replace the part. It went smoothly and the icemaker is working again. :)
