followed a movie on the internet. I'm 77 and I felt like it was very easy. My wife of 51 years gave me a round of applause when the first ice cube popped out.

The video on the website on replacing the Icemaker Assembly is great. I watched it then performed the R&R. It would have taken less than 15 mins but I took the time to clean the components which were reused. The water receiver on the new assembly is taller than the original. Luckily the water outlet in the freezer is rubber so I was able to bend it out of the way so I could slide in the new unit. The wiring plug in the new assembly was installed in reverse of the old one so I had to pull the unit back out, turn the wiring plug upside down, put it back in place then re-install the unit. Had a couple minor changes to make but the video is a great teacher.

Watched the informative video of the same repair twice so I would know what to do and the order in which to do it... the video made the removal of the old part and installation of the new part a breeze. Just follow the instructions and anyone could do this home repair, even those not mechanically inclined. Outcome success gave me confidence to do more of these types of repairs myself and save $$.

Initial diagnosis incorrectly led me believe the problem was with the optic eye. After replacing the optic eve and still no ice, I realized the problem had to be with the actual ice maker itself. The removal of the old ice maker and installing of the new one took less than 5 minutes. This of course was after watching the repair video first. I still feel that I saved money by doing the repair myself instead calling in a appliance repair man, even with the added cost of the probable unneeded optic eye replacement. I am very satisfied.

Ice Maker quit working

The ice maker quit working about 4 years after we purchased this refrigerator. I asked several contractors if they knew what the problem could be. All believed it had something to do with the water line being stopped up. However, when I looked at the water line, it seemed fine. Thankfully when I googled about repairing this refrig, I came upon this website. It stated statistically that the Icemaker assembly part was the problem. Guess what? Replaced it and it works! The repair was a little tedious, so I got my next door neighbor to help. He has a few moments struggling getting it out and the new one in, but overall, it was not too difficult. I believe I could have done it with the video's help but certainly would have taken me longer.

Watched the video accompanying the ice maker replacement part. Took 6 minutes. Then, having gathered my two recommended tools, moved to the fridge. Had the new replacement installed and working in 4 minutes. Doesn't qet any better than this.

Ice maker quit working, then the fridge & freezer stopped cooling

I actually purchased an ice maker, a combination start device & a run capacitor. I watched the 2 videos which were very helpful, in fact I may not have been able to do this if I had not watched the videos first. It took me step by step. It couldn't have been more simple. I replaced the start device & the run capacitor first just to make sure my fridge would cool again, then when it did, I replaced the ice maker. I saved myself a service call ($59.95) and the labor to replace the ice maker & other parts($140)and that didn't include the parts! By the way I'm female and 71 years old. So if I can do this anyone can.

No ice from ice maker

Parts Select has great videos that describe step-by-step how to perform the repair. I did a sloppy job of diagnosing the problem, and concluded it was the water valve. The actual problems was that the ice maker was not sending a signal to the valve to send water. I could have determined this if I had tested the ice maker using all of the connection points where a jumper wire could be inserted. The ice maker arrived on my doorstep exactly when promised, and was an easy ten-minute fix. My conclusion is that an average person CAN work on their own appliances with a company like PartsSelect to backstop them.

Removed icemaker and installed the new one. Went from six tiny ice cubes to four big ice cubes. Ice is of a higher quality, and the ice no longer falls out of the bin as the old ice maker's ice had once been prone to doing. A certified epic win on my part.

Water leaking and freezing on the botton of the icemaker mold

Install was done in reverse order of uninstall. The only thing that made this install a bit tricky is that the fill cup on the replacement icemaker was not the same part as on the original. I could have attempted to trim the replacement fill cup but didn't know how well that would work. I instead elected to install the original fill cup onto the new icemaker. This added a bit of time and complexity to the repair but I followed a repair video for when just the ice mold is being replaced. That video told me how to disassemble the ice mold and timer motor which had to be done to in order to replace the fill cup. It's been about 2 weeks since repair was made and the icemaker seems to be working properly.

ICE CHUTE FREEZING UP

Removal of escutcheon was easy. Replacing icedoor was fairly easy, working with wires in the way was a little distracting but simple. Be careful with microswitches and locating pins. Two of mine broke, had to replace bracket. Simple job again. Everything working fine now. No ice jam in chute. Using needlenose pliers to remove/insert pin is the best and easiest option.

Foam had torn off the flap door and the black thingy had broken.

Pulled off front. Detached wires without getting electrocuted. Marked them first so I'd know where they go. Pushed up the thing with wires so I could see the flap door. It had a heat thing in the flap which my replacement part didn't have, so I had to pull it out of the broken flap and insert in the new flap. Snapped flap door in place. Attached black thing loop to white thing. DIdn't use the spring or the white thing. Reattached wires and put on front piece. Everything now works. No more frost in the freezer!!!
