Changed the Motor Assembly. Wasn't the problem. If I had followed your trouble chart a little farther I would have found out it was the circuit boards. All is well and I might add that yor guide with the parts and video are priceless. Very Happy. Lowell Onstad

very simple to remove 2 screws inside door at the top of the ice maker auger shaft, I then pulled straight up on the shaft which disenged it from the motor. Installed the new shaft by placing it in the same position as the one just removed, replaced the plastic cover with the 2 screws, and everything worked fine. It was obviouse looking at the old shaft that it's corners were rounded and that caused it to slip

Unplug appliance, turn off water supply valve to fridge. Remove rear cover and locate water inlet valve on lower right corner. Remove 2 screws holding valve in place. Pay attention to water line locations. Unplug 2 connections on valve. They are different size so you can't put them back on wrong. Remove all lines from bad valve. Cut all ends off lines and insert into new valve. Make sure they go where they belong. Press firmly into place. Reconnect electrical plugs and screw valve back in place. Turn water supply valve back on and check for leaks. If all is good put rear cover back on , plug appliance back in and your work is done. Easy replacement job.

from the back of the freezer unscrewed the water feed to the feed tube. unscrewed the tube from the freezer and removed it. Ran hot water through the fill tube and then reinstalled the tube back into the freezer. Cycled the ice maker and the water started filling the icemaker. Did not use the water inlet valve that I ordered. Matter of fact.. I returned it. Always remember to check the fill tube and make sure it is not frozen.

I removed the old water inlet valve and replaced it with a new one. I had to cut the existing water lines with a razor to fit the new design of the new inlet valve. I also had to remove the inlet water valve and attach it to the new one. It was real easy once I reviewed the U tube video on how to replace the valve.

water dispenser leaking, auto ice maker froze up

Researched in "ehow" the procedure. Looked relatively simple so I ordered the part. When it arrived, emptied the frig, pulled it out, thawed out the auto ice maker with a hair dryer. I then examined the old part and compared it to the new part. They were close. Old part had a rivet attaching it to another bracket which had a primary valve that led to the filter cartridge housing. I had to drill out the rivet to seperate the mounting brackets. The electrical connectors were rear facing on the old unit and front facing on the new unit. Not a big problem, just concerned that the solenoid leads might be polarity specific. I called my brother who works on restaurant equipment and he said that as long as the long were the same color, polarity was not an issue. He was right. The second concern I had was that the plastic line from the primary input valve was a stiffer gray plastic line with a rib molded on the ended to secure a metal compression nut. I wondered again if that would cause a problem with the new pressure connector. It did not. Just cut off the rid and slide it in. Frig is working great, dispensing water and ice like it was new. Bought the frig for $1,000 13 years ago, now sells for $2,500. Save a ton of money by buying the part and doing it myself. Thanks.
