Sorry for delay in writing. Part I ordered arrived two days ago and it was exactly what I needed. Knowing that there will be problems even with the smallest job I procrastinated starting. When I did start this morning I foud I had to completely remove the ice maker and disassemble it in order to install the water fill cup bracket. The challenge was reassembling the unit. Not hard for an experienced repairman but a challenge for layman. Everything is thing is back to gether now and power on cooling down the refrigerator. Won't know how successful it was until turn on water and ice is formed. If it works this saved $75 just to get a Sears repairman to come out and tell me what would be needed to fix the refrigerator and $1,000 if I had to buy a new refrigerator. Extremely satisfied with service I received. Thank you.

I was unable to remove the old part so I threaded the new part in front of it. They both fit within the actuator. Done!

It tool me a while to diagnose the problem but realized the ice dispenser motor coupling had failed. It fooled me for a while because it turned on the motor but could not turn the plastic shaft inside the icemaker. I found the instructions for an almost identical repair on your website. 1)I removed the motor. In my case the wiring harness came right off.2) I turned the coupling by hand and found that although it turned, it was actually loose on the motor shaft. I then knew it was the problem. 3) The threads were apparently cross threated. 4) As a prior user suggested on your site, I used a hacksaw to cut the old coupling off, being careful to not damage the remaining threads. 5) I ordered the new coupling which arrived very quickly 6) I screwed it on to the motor shaft (remember it is a left hand thread). 7) Presto!! My icemaker works. As the other user suggested, I did not have to use washers as spacers. The new coupling was better made than the old one and actually has ~1/8" nut or spacer already welded to the coupling. My thanks to those before me who helped make this a successful repair.

The nut on the motor that turns the augor in the ice maker had striped the treads.

I would not have attempted the repairs without your instruction. I use a Drimel tool with a abravise blade to cut the part off the shaft. After I realized the Drimel tool would work. It took me parhaps 10 minutes to get it off the shaft. I had already ordered the new part and the job was complete. Thanks for the help. Ron Burch

I cracked the crisper pan after having the refrigerator only one week and needed a replacement ASAP!! I was so happy to find this site and the part I needed. It's a little pricy for a plastic drawer but I can overlook that since it was in stock and I received it the very next day!!!I took out the cracked pan, slid in the new one and I was done!!!! No more unsightly crack!
