Initial diagnosis incorrectly led me believe the problem was with the optic eye. After replacing the optic eve and still no ice, I realized the problem had to be with the actual ice maker itself. The removal of the old ice maker and installing of the new one took less than 5 minutes. This of course was after watching the repair video first. I still feel that I saved money by doing the repair myself instead calling in a appliance repair man, even with the added cost of the probable unneeded optic eye replacement. I am very satisfied.

The ice maker quit working about 4 years after we purchased this refrigerator. I asked several contractors if they knew what the problem could be. All believed it had something to do with the water line being stopped up. However, when I looked at the water line, it seemed fine. Thankfully when I googled about repairing this refrig, I came upon this website. It stated statistically that the Icemaker assembly part was the problem. Guess what? Replaced it and it works! The repair was a little tedious, so I got my next door neighbor to help. He has a few moments struggling getting it out and the new one in, but overall, it was not too difficult. I believe I could have done it with the video's help but certainly would have taken me longer.

Followed the instructions in the PartSelect video. It was so easy. Replaced the old ice maker on Monday. Visited a friend on Tuesday. Her Kenmore Frig's ice maker was broken, would not make ice. I told her how easy it was to fix and ordered the part for her today. It should be here by Tuesday and I will install it as soon as it comes in.

Watcheda U-Tube type video of how to repair the unit. This was very helpful in that it identified a screw that had to be removed but was not visible upon my initial observations. Also it mentioned that you had to re-use some of the original hardware in order to complete the replacement. My only complaint is that I believe the failed motor could have been replaced for about $15 but I was not able to find that specific part in any catalog and opted to replace the entire unit. Overall I am extremely well pleased. Everything now works fine.

The replacement ice maker water inlet was taller than the original. I had to disassemble both the new and old unit to replace the new water inlet with the old one. The video was very helpful in troubleshooting, removing and installing the unit.

Removed icemaker and installed the new one. Went from six tiny ice cubes to four big ice cubes. Ice is of a higher quality, and the ice no longer falls out of the bin as the old ice maker's ice had once been prone to doing. A certified epic win on my part.

Water leaking and freezing on the botton of the icemaker mold

Install was done in reverse order of uninstall. The only thing that made this install a bit tricky is that the fill cup on the replacement icemaker was not the same part as on the original. I could have attempted to trim the replacement fill cup but didn't know how well that would work. I instead elected to install the original fill cup onto the new icemaker. This added a bit of time and complexity to the repair but I followed a repair video for when just the ice mold is being replaced. That video told me how to disassemble the ice mold and timer motor which had to be done to in order to replace the fill cup. It's been about 2 weeks since repair was made and the icemaker seems to be working properly.

No ice from ice maker

Parts Select has great videos that describe step-by-step how to perform the repair. I did a sloppy job of diagnosing the problem, and concluded it was the water valve. The actual problems was that the ice maker was not sending a signal to the valve to send water. I could have determined this if I had tested the ice maker using all of the connection points where a jumper wire could be inserted. The ice maker arrived on my doorstep exactly when promised, and was an easy ten-minute fix. My conclusion is that an average person CAN work on their own appliances with a company like PartsSelect to backstop them.
