All of the parts are removed and install through the front of the freezer bin. Remove three screws and unplug the old one. I plugged the old wiring directly in and set the new ice maker on two of the screws for alignment, then screwed in the third screw, tightened everything. Install the arm that checks the status of the amount of ice and waited for it to fill up with ice.

I disconnected the power, using a screw drier loosened the screws and disconnected the old ice maker. disconnected the ice maker power and assembled the new Ice maker first connecting the control bar then connect the power inside the refrigerator. connected the ice maker with the screws ensuring it is balanced so the water doesn't overflow. turned the power power on. it took about 6 hours for it to begin producing ice. this was an easy job just make sure the ice maker is rinsed thoroughly before connecting and very it is balance with the first few runs of water.

My Old Ice Maker Burned Out. Stop Working

  • Customer: Ronald from Greenville, NC
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

  • Tools Required: Socket set

I unplugged the refrigerator then I took the bottom screw out of the ice maker. I loosen the other two screws and picked up on the ice maker and it came out. I saw that the top of the ice maker where the screws are they sit in a groove so you dont have to take the top screws out just loosen them and pick up on the ice maker and it will come out. Then I unplugged it from the old ice maker not from the wall of the refrigerator. The reason is I didnt want to mess up the cover that hides the plug in the wall of the refrigerator. Then I took the metal on and off bar off the old ice maker and put it on the new one. Then I took the face off the new ice maker and unplugged the new wire. All you have to do is press down on the little clip and pull back on the plug. Then I plugged the old plug into the new ice maker. Then I set the ice maker in the grooves on the top screws then iput the bottom screw back in then I tighten all screws. I plugged the refrigerator in. I started getting ice in thirty minutes. My wife think I can fix anything now. Thanks

The repair man came out and said the Ice Maker is broken.He said to call him when I get the part but after looking at the video it took 10 minutes to Install. If you can use a screw driver this part is a piece of cake. Oh don't forget to unplug the frig. God Luck John Bronx NY

Ordered the part and within 8 minutes I had installed it without having to use any of the included wire harnesses. Was making ice within six hours. If you take your time before, review the handy video PartSelect provides online and prepare the work space it should be a snap. I can't say enough good things about the swift delivery and usefulness of the part. Also, best price I could find after shopping competitors. I highly recommend this project, it was easy and should make using your otherwise working refrigerator more enjoyable.

The replacement part (new ice maker unit) orked perfectly fter insstall. The "Part Select" video on how to replace this unit was extremely helpful and actually convinced me to try it myself. I took the old unit out and just reversed the process and installed the new, replacement unit. Worked fine and wroks fine. (Note: it did take a full 24 hours or a little longer to actually start making ice. I think the ater supply drains off and takes a while to get back into the ice maker.)

While removing the old Ice Maker, by looking at the new one, I observed that the old one had Ice frozen in the path of the water flow. After I removed the ice, using a hair dryer, I reassembled the old part and it has worked fine ever since. I have a spare Ice Maker now.

Watched the video on the Partsselect how to remove and install the icemaker. It made the job real easy to do. It took about 20 minutes to exchange it out. It took me about a extra 30 minutes to remove the water line to the icemaker and install a in-line filter. The water froz up where it pours into the icemaker. Ran some hot water through the line, reinstalled the line and everything works great now for over a week. Just a extra tip always check the water line to make sure Its clear. George Fontana CA
