If the ice maker mold develops a hole it will leak water causing an ice icicle to form on the bottom. If this is your symptom its time to replace the ice maker. The first step is to shut off water supply and unplug refrigerator. Next loosen the two upper screws and try not to remove them. On the bottom towards the front of the ice maker there is one screw. This is mounting bracket screw, remove it completely. At this point hold the ice maker a push it upwards to remove it from the upper mounting brackets. Once it is free from the mounting brackets you will have access to the wiring harness. The plug clips in place so you will have to spread it while unplugging it. Most likely you will have to remove shut-off arm and may be the heat shield as well from old unit. You may have to tug them some what to remove them from the front of the old ice maker. Suggest wearing work gloves for this step to avoid being cut. Install parts on the new ice maker by snapping them in place. Verify that the new icemaker has the correct wiring harness if so you are all set to install it. Place the new unit in the compartment and plug it in. Make sure it is also lined up in the rear where the water tube is a well. Now line up the upper screws with both support brackets and push down gently to lock them in. Install lower mounting screw. Snug up the upper screws enough so the unit is flush to the freezer wall and feels secure. Turn on water supply and plug in the refrigerator. Your Done And A Hero to your better half.

Instead of trouble shooting what part was bad, just replaced the whole unit. Probably cheaper in the long run and the whole process took less than 15 minutes. Pulled the old icemaker out, plugged in the new one and back in business.

I watched the video and made sure my replacement ice maker matched the original. On my particular icemaker/refigerator combination, the electrical connection was slightly different than what was shown in the video, but the process for removal and replacement was very similar. I believe if more videos were available that were of the quality of the one on this website, there would be more people attempting to replace parts. I believe I saved over $200 by doing it myself. Kudos to the website and video people.

I was able to verify that the water inlet valve was ok based on shorting the test points as described in the online ice maker troubleshooting guide. I then ordered the replacement ice maker and received it within 3 days. The repairs went very smooth, remove 3 screws, unplug connector, transfer shutoff wire to new unit, connect power, replace 3 screws. Done. Ice bucket was full within 24 hours.
