The video on the website on replacing the Icemaker Assembly is great. I watched it then performed the R&R. It would have taken less than 15 mins but I took the time to clean the components which were reused. The water receiver on the new assembly is taller than the original. Luckily the water outlet in the freezer is rubber so I was able to bend it out of the way so I could slide in the new unit. The wiring plug in the new assembly was installed in reverse of the old one so I had to pull the unit back out, turn the wiring plug upside down, put it back in place then re-install the unit. Had a couple minor changes to make but the video is a great teacher.

Watched the informative video of the same repair twice so I would know what to do and the order in which to do it... the video made the removal of the old part and installation of the new part a breeze. Just follow the instructions and anyone could do this home repair, even those not mechanically inclined. Outcome success gave me confidence to do more of these types of repairs myself and save $$.

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.

Ice Maker quit working

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.
