Ice maker issue

  • Customer: Carlos from Alta Loma, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Water was not filling the ice tray and the ice tray coating was comming off. After the service repairman wanted to charge me over 500.00 for just replacing the ice maker, it told him to take a hike. I bought the icemaker and the electronic controls, which controls when and how much water goes into the tray for less than 250.00 and it took me less than 15 minutes to replace.

Would not produce and dump ice fast enough to use.

Used the trouble shooting off of YouTube and after finding that the heater was not at the right resistance, ordered a new ice-maker and installed. Very simple and a lot cheaper than going through Sears.

I changed out the complete ice maker by first un-plugging fridge from the electrical outlet,then taking out the three screws holding the ice maker in place, unplugging electrical connector that operates the module and then removed by sliding ice maker away from fridge. Replaced old ice maker and re-plugged connector. Screwed ice maker back into place and plugged fridge back into outlet. Within 5 minutes we could hear the water dispenser filling the ice maker. Within another hour we had our first batch of ice.

Just as the video described except there was a rubber fill tube hanging down from the top of the freezer that made it a little more difficult to install the new icemaker(I just had to bend it up and hope it didnt break)

I tried to put in the model ice maker sent to me but it was not an exact match to the one I was replacing. The water fill cup on the upper right side was too tall to fit over the rubber fill hose so I had to take the old ice maker apart and swap it with the new cup. Then I installed the new maker but it did not work over night. I took it back out and disassembled it and saw condensation on the electric motor housing which had turned to ice. I figured that if there was ice on the outside then there was probably some on the inside as well. I used a hair dryer to evaporate the ice/moisture and then re-installed the unit. It has worked fine ever since. I do not think that I needed the entire ice maker unit but just the timer motor. I could have saved some money and time if I had known that the motor was available by it's self. The shipping was fast for the unit but look over the unit that you are replacing and make sure the picture of the new unit is IDENTICAL to it. Watch the video PartSelect offers and it will help you a lot.

The unit came out easily but the wire harness connector just didn't want to disconnect. The ice cold plastic was very difficult to work with and I had to use a screw-driver edge to pry it up and apart.

stopped making ice

the icemaker stopped making ice. The cubes would get jammed up and finally just stopped all together. Removal of the icemaker and installation of the new one was pretty easy. The only problem was getting the electrical plug undone from the old unit. We have a lot of calcium in our water and I guess it finally ate through and ice was forming under the unit. It was five years old so not bad really. All is good....quick delivery. Thanks.

Ice Maker stopped working after cyclying one time.

Ordered a new Ice Maker and replaced old one. The installation was a breeze except for the water recepticle on the right side of the Ice Maker. It was taller than the original and difficul to move the rubber water line into the new recepticle. Other than that. Problem solved. Been working great ever since.

The icemaker would occasionally dump the ice in the tray. I could unfrost the tray and then it would seem to work for a couple of times and then stop again.

I removed the old icemaker and tore it apart as much as I could to see if I could see anything obvious. I also took a resistance reading on the heating coil in the bottom of the icemaker. It was good. I then hooked the old icemaker back up with the end cover off. The plastic wheel on the end of the ice maker did not move. I then ordered a new ice maker, installed it and it has worked perfectly ever since.
