Removed the broken icemaker per instructions provided with the replacement part purchased. by Part Select. The whole procedure went very well and my new icemaker is working like a charm. I highly .recommend Part Select. Kitchenaid had discontinued making the the original icemaker and Part Select provide an OEM replacement that worked perfectly.

Replaced Ice Maker

The replacement ice maker came with a few different wiring harnesses which I assumed one of them would fit. well none of them did. I took the wiring off of the old one and matched up all of the receptacles and hoped for the best. It worked. The hardest part of the repair was dislodging the ice machine from the massive chunk of ice that had developed due to the leak in the old one. after that it was pretty easy. I hemmed and hawed about the wiring harness for a few minutes but felt confident it was going to be okay. I took the heat shield off of the old one and put it on the new one and used the control cover and the control arm from the old one too. I checked that all the holes and mounting assemblies matched up. I plugged in the wiring harness to the ice maker and than to the refridgerator, used a nut driver to secure it to the inside wall of the freezer with 3 screws, replaced the ice bucket and the cold air diverter and closed the door. Within an hour I heard the first ice hit the bottom of the bucket.

Ice maker stopped working altogether, dead.

The unit was old so I opted to buy a new one even though it was just the motor. It took about 10 minutes to remove it after locating the fasteners, possibly less and about the same to install the new one. When the unit is turned on for the first time it does not start up right away. It will not start until it senses that it is cold enough in the freezer. For me that was about an hour to an hour and a half. There was a note on the cover that this could be as long as thirty six (36) hours. So don't be alarmed when it does not start running right away. The instructions were accurate.

Would not make ice cubes.

The icemaker is in a side by side refrigerator/freezer with an auger driven ice bin dispenser, so space was limited. I first removed the ice bin but I couldn't see the three nuts holding the icemaker in place. I removed the ice bin support bracket (under the icemaker) using a Phillips head screw driver. Now the bottom nut holding the icemaker in place was easily visible and I was able to determine the size of nut driver I needed to completely remove it. Then I felt for the location of the top two nuts, slipped the nut driver on and loosened them. I was able to lift the icemaker off the top two nuts without completely removing them. Using a flat head screw driver, I pushed down the white tab holding the wiring harness connection to the icemaker and removed the harness, freeing the ice maker for complete removal. I did not need to replace the wiring harness, so I simply reversed the whole process to install the new icemaker. I am a 61 year old female with rheumatoid & degenerative arthritis and found this installation really easy, with the one exception of snapping the wiring harness connection into the new icemaker - I didn't have the thumb strength. I had to wait for a relative to come and snap the wiring harness connector into place for me. I also had to use some snips to cut out the plastic tab (scored) for the water feed to the icemaker but was able to complete the entire installation within 30 minutes.

Very simple. Using only a screw driver removed all the screws and removed the front part of the ice bin. Then I removed the screw auger that pushes the ice out and reassembled every thing to the new ice bin.

I did the repair, but apparently there's an Ice Door Kit with Bracket ( Part #8201756 - PartSelect Number PS990120 ) that has a metal bracket that will actually fix the problem with the broken plastic that holds the pin in.

We bought the fridge used and immediately see why it was being sold. But ordered a new thermostat and with Part Select's instructional video was able to replace the thermostat. I should mention it was my first attempt making any repairs to a refrigerator. It was fairly straightforward project.

Temperature on refrigerator side was unstable. I was adjusting the thermostate control (center knob) frequently.

  • Customer: L from Friendswood TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I followed the instructions shown in the on-line video for replacing the thermostate control. I had difficulty freeing the capilary tube from around the mechanical lever that controls the freezer side vent opening. I had to remove a screw that held the vent lever in place. This is a delicate activity. I was not happy with the way the on-line video delt with this particular issue. Otherwise, the video was right on and straight forward. The problem is fixed.

Refrigerator would quit, then after I played with the thermostat it would work for a time.
