This has nothing to do with the repair - But with the customer service. I ordered and received a crisper in the mail and it had a crack in it. When I called the customer service # they helped me quickly and explained exactly how the credit/re-ship would happen. I received my new crisper in just a couple of days. Thank you!

Ice maker quit making ice

I took the cover off, and noticed the tabs holding the timer wheel were broken off on one side. after removing the wheel, I noticed the shaft from the ice lifters was broken. Since the only way I could repair it was to buy the entire module, which I did. I received my part in 3 days. When it came, I began removing the old module by taking out the three screws holding it. After replacing the module which took about 10 minutes, my machine was making ice within about an hour. My ice holder was full in 3 days. Albert Moran, Milton, Fl

First remove the snack drawer, glass shelf above it and other plastic pieces which just sit in place. Remove the three 1/4" screws that hold the end cap to the refrigerator liner. Lift up on the endcap and then out as there is a blind slot it slides into. Tilt the endcap out from the back and remove it. Remove the drawer glide from the endcap and transfer it to the new part. Reinstall the endcap by engaging the two plastic ends into the rear corner of the cabinet and then sliding it down on over the blind support. Install the three 1/4" head screws to secure the endcap to the liner. Reinstall the glass shelf and pantry drawer.

Ice Maker Stopped Working

Tough part was diagnosing the problem: bad water inlet solenoid, frozen inlet line, bad ice maker motor, or door opening sensor? Went to a parts shop & discussed the problem with the serviceman. He said you just need to sequentially replace each part. No way say I, that could cost $300 with a no-part return option.

I decided to replace the motor...Eureka!! It worked.
The underside of the ice maker cartridge has a plastic snap clip on either side of the cartridge. You need push each up, pull the left side of the cartridge out part way & disconnect the electrical connector on the right side(left..you facing the refrig.) With the cartridge out simply remove the 5 screws from the motor plate of the left side & replace with the new one.
Very simple. Slide the cartridge back in the frig. until the 2 snap clips click. Voila...you done! Cost $86..not $300. Apparently the motor is too weak to do the job & burns out quickly. Manufacturer should correct this defect.
