This is the 2nd ice maker replace in the past 20 months. This installation was easier following the experience of the first replacement. The instructions are well written. The pictures or illustrations are difficult. The most challenging part of the installation is routing and fastening the wire harness. The illustration was not helpful. Overall, this is a repair most DIYers should be able to accomplish.

Ice maker would not make ice or fill up

  • Customer: Brian from Louisville, KY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Followed the video instructions posted below the product. Its a tight area to work in but it can be done. It did not immediately start making ice. I waited and waited.... 3 hrs 4 hrs still not filling up or making ice. Finally I decided to pour some water in the tray and see if it would freeze ice and dump it. It did and immediately started to fill up on its own after that! Its been working perfectly ever since! So dont be alarmed if yours doesnt work immediately and try pouring some water in it if yours doesnt being working within several hrs. I am happy I was able to do this myself and save repair man costs. Its just not work the cost they charge for older appliances.

The repair went exactly as illustrated by the video offered by part select. That video was helpful and showed me step by step how to accomplish the repair. The replacement part was exactly the same as the original, thank you part select.( Allow the old ice maker to return to room temperature before you remove the 1/4 nut securing the level mechanism, otherwise the frozen head of the not will break off).

I watched the video and it seemed pretty easy. I ordered the new ice maker. It arrived in 5 days and I chanted it in less the 30 minutes. A little tricky seeing where you have to loosen the screws but not hard. and in 2 hours I had ice again.

instructions were very simple. Took about 10 minutes to replace the unit. Do NOT get excited about immediate ice because it took mine awhile to g et cranked up for full production. Anyone can do this! Saves about $150.00 in labor to have someone(no smarter than you) do it for you.

Unplug refrigerator power cord. Remove ice cube bin. Place wire signal arm in down (off) position. Ice Maker is held in place by two (slotted/hex headed) screws through keyhole slots over the top of Ice maker along the left side of freezer. Use mirror to locate screws then carefully loosen (do not remove) screws with a nut driver or screw driver. Lift Ice maker up and right until it releases from the screw heads. Unplug electrical connection. A flat screw driver may be required to loosen connector. Connect new unit electrical and Install new unit over screw heads and tighten screws. Replace Ice Bin and place wire signal arm in the up (on) position. Reconnect refrigerator power cord. After freezer cools down sufficiently it will start making ice.

Water was leaking where filter fit into filter base

  • Customer: Nathan from Dickson, TN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I was able to take away the trim covering the parts with a nutdriver. The base was disconnected using a phillips head screwdriver. The only real issue was how to disconnect the plastic water lines from the old base and connect them to the new one. I finally realized I just had to cut the lines where they entered the filter base because they would not pull out. I then finally understood that to install them into the new base I just had to push them in securely. The lines were long enough to do this but probably would not be long enough to install another filter base. In that event I do not know what all would have to be done. The leak had been going on for years (it only leaked when water was running to the ice machine or water dispenser). It is great having it repaired and we hope to get quite a few more years out of this old fridge.

Water dispenser/ice maker not working

  • Customer: Sierra from Seattle, WA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I followed previous directions, and would recommend them! Briefly, I removed the plastic covers for the water filter, water tubes, temperature control switches to allow removal using a screwdriver and a nutdriver(I think)to remove the hexagonal screws. I also removed the water filter before beginning. I pressed the blue thingies in the back towards the base to remove the water supply lines. It was a bit tricky, and took the bulk of the repair time, but they came lose once enough pressure was applied. I took out the old filter base, put in the new one, attached the water lines, and put back all the covers. Everything comes apart very easily, and went back together very easily. A simple repair that had us back in ice and filtered water within an hour!

May need someone to hold a flashlight on area during repair. The bottom ridged-tray does pull out easily, exposing three Phillip-head screws. Remove them. Lift the face plate up slightly and pull out to expose the wiring harness behind it near the top. Push the small clip that holds the white plug together and pull to separate. Set faceplate aside. Find and remove three more Phillip-head screws, one in top middle and two on the sides. Pull the unit forward enough to see the two Phillip screws that hold the metal pieces over the rotating arms of the broken lever. Cannot pull this unit out too far as the water hose from refrigerator restricts movement. Use needle nose pliers to reposition/release the spring clip that rests against the lever. No need to remove the entire spring. Remove the two screws. They are short, so be careful not to drop them or the metal pieces they hold down. Use needle nose pliers to retrieve them if dropped. Lift the broken lever up to disengage its rotating arms from grooves. Remove the broken lever by pulling up or pushing down, depending on where it is broken. Take new lever and insert from the bottom and insert both arms in grooves. Re-insert the two screws and metal pieces (large piece on the left). Place spring clip on arm of new lever. Screw the unit back with three screws. Re-connect the white plug of the faceplate. Reinsert the faceplate on refrigerator by aligning holes with hook-prongs and push in and down to lock in. Add the three screws at bottom to secure. Reinsert the bottom and push in to lock. Check lever operation.
