The small arm in the tray for the ice maker stopped moving. I put hot water in there to see if anything was clogging up the line or the tray, but nothing was. I then pushed on the arm and it moved pretty easily. So I took off the front cover and the motor; I saw that the plastic piece connecting to the gear was broken. So I realigned and replaced the motor. Ice maker is working like a champ again.

I have a side-by-side fridge/freezer, so taking out the icemaker is a bit more tricky than the video shows. I just unscrewed a nut in the back right of the mechanism (this nut is holding the icemaker in place as well as the plug cover). Once that was off it slid out pretty easy. Because the freezer is so narrow, it's a bit difficult to get it back in, but all told the repair took me about 20 minutes. Replacing this part fixed the icemaker immediately and we're so glad to have our on demand ice back! Ladies, don't be afraid of a little appliance repair!

I had to make sure the electronic beam was working properly, which it was (steady beam if you press in the side plastic flap. I also had to make sure the water valve for the icemaker was working properly as well, which it was by switching the lead wires on the valve (water dispenser wire to ice maker valve, and hitting water dispenser paddle and hearing water flow to the ice maker). After that, I knew it was the icemaker motor. Removed three screws with a socket, disconnected wire harness (had to use pliers to pull it apart), pulled out entire icemaker unit. Loosened three screws on motor control unit to remove it from icemaker unit, then inserted new motor control unit and re-screwed the 3 screws. Then I pu tthe entire icemaker unit back in the freezer, connected wire harness, re-inserted three screws and was finished. I then waited for one hour, went to check ice maker and I had ice cubes forming in the tray.

Researched the problem on the internet. Identified the icemaker control and motor assembly as the most likely culprit. Ordered a new one. Arrived in two days. Installed it in about 15 minutes. Had ice 3 hours later.

Turned off the icemaker and took out the hex screw at the back of the unit that held the cable guard. The ice maker was easy to slide out after releasing guide locks on each side of the unit. Pulled the unit forward and released the electrical connection. With the unit on the cabinet, I removed the motor housing cover. Took out the 3 scews holding it in place and the old motor was out. Just reverse the steps putting the new one in. In an hour or two we heard ice dumping into the holder.

I ordered both icemaker motor assembly and the emitter and receiver (sensors)as I was uncertain as to which was the culprit. We couldn't unplug the frige as it is heavy, so we shut the circuit breaker until we were done with the repair. The icemaker motor was a bit clumsy to remove. My refrigerator was entirely different than the one on the video I viewed, as I have a side by side and the video was of an entirely different model. The video's icemaker was not as clumsy to work with. My husband was a little apprehensive so I rode shot gun and assisted and he did great. He did change the motor first and probably should have waited to see if it worked. He didn't wait, and went ahead and changed the sensors....that was a breeze. We waited about 2 hours and lo and behold once the freezer went down to 14 degrees, the icemaker began it's magic and we had a full supply of ice within 24 hours. So, I saved quite a bit of cash by purchasing the parts I needed at Parts Select and eliminated the repairman's expensive fee. Very happy with end results.

There are two tabs that hold the icemaker to the rails it sits on. I use a small screwdriver and pushed the tabs up to release the tray and slid the Ice maker out. the cover over the control motor just pops right off. Then I removed three screws from the control motor pulled it off and put the new on, replaced the screws and put the cover back on and slid the icemaker back into the rails. I shut the freezer door and within the five minutes it took me to put my tools back in the garage, it was dumping ice. Very easy to fix. You do not need to remove the screws that hold the icemaker to the tray.
