About a year ago, my icemaker stopped making ice. Knowing that a "house call" would cost a fortune, I delayed calling for a repair. Then I discovered the instructional videos on this (and other) websites. Looked like a relatively easy job. Troubleshooting the problem, however, had me scratching my head. Was it the control unit? the ice maker? the water pump? a frozen water line? A 4 day power outage allowed me to rule out the frozen line. The forum here allowed me to rule out the control unit (the blink codes indicated that it was working). So, the pump or the icemaker? Hmmm. I poured some water into the icemaker to see if it would make ice (I think that was a hint on the forum). No ice, so I ordered a new icemaker (and it arrived very quickly). It was very easy to take the old maker out. Some very minor complications with the new icemaker. First, the "funnel" for the water into the icemaker was a bit taller than the old one so had to manuever the water tube into the "funnel". The second problem is that the electrical connector on the icemaker seemed to be longer than the old one so the connector extended beyond the white cover. Not really a problem but it made it difficult to fix the cover over the wire. In the end, it just left it fitted loosely, without screwing it in place. All in all, however, a very straight forward undertaking (made even more so by the excellent videos)

The ice maker was not making ice

The ice maker was replaced easily with the help of the repair video. However, that did not fix the problem. With further investigation I found that the more common problem was the emitter boards. I replaced the new ice maker assembly with the old one and ordered the emitter boards. Partselect allow easy return of the new ice maker and I received the emitter boards and easily replaced them and ice is making as I type. Great experience and supper helpful repair videos.

Unit did not go in as easily as the video showed.

In the freezer on the upper left hand side is a small spr ing loaded door that opens when you open the door and closes when the ice maker container makes contact with it.The video did not show the worker making contact with the door or even addressing the potential problem of the door continually staying open as you try to fit the ice maker into the space vertically as the videe showes. What happened is that I almost broke the door off just trying to fit the maker into its tracks. I finally taped the door closed so I could fit the maker in. I used painters blue tape and so far it is still working. The ice maker is working also. Either make the installer aware of how to temporarily stop the door from inteferring with the install or just have him tape it before he starts to install the new maker.

Ice Maker had stopped making ice

Repair was fairly easy to do and service from Partselect was great - part delivered in two days. Two comments to add: 1) the water tube coming down from the top of the ice box into the replacement icemaker was too long (because the "water cup" was higher on the replacement). I just cut a piece of plastic out of the back of the cup so that the icemaker would slide in (still leaving plenty of cup to catch the water). 2) Because the icemaker had been off for several days, ice had formed in the water line just above the icemaker. I had to thaw this ice before water would run into the icemaker.

as discribed in video except the fill tube blocked insertion ofice maker. Had to force it inbecause the fill tube was blocking the slide in of the trayby an inch. Had to force the tray by the fill tube. Thought it might break the plastic box on the tray. After quite a bit of effort, it finaaly slid in. No mention of this problem in the video.

no harvest

Assumed a broken ice maker motor, since I tried to force a harvest (jumped T-H) and it did not work, and it is 6 years old. Ice maker went in easy, harvested 3 or so times and quit. Forced another harvest (with the bucket on the door, you have to remove the ice maker to jump the points (PITA)wish they could make the jump points more accessible, like on the old units, mounted on the side). worked about 5 times and quit. Next step is the optics, which, as an old computer guy I find it hard to believe that a circuit board is bad intermittently. As an aside, the door jam gets hot, when I believe it is during harvest time. I vacuumed the coils, but it still heats up... only intermittently, coincidence???

Originally ordered parts I thought would fix ice maker. When I took apart the icemaker assembly I noticed and found the actual part that went bad. Called customer service and was able to return the parts I thought would fix the ice maker, without any problems. I ordered the correct part on the same call. Within a day or so the new part arrived and was installed within 15 minutes. Thanks to the instructions & comments posted on the "Instant Repairman" link. Awesome customer service that can not be bet.

I watched the quick video once to see the type, if it matched mine, and the difficulty. I went ahead and ordered the part and within minutes, I had the ice maker installed. The video was so well designed, I only had to watch it once!

Ihis $2000.00 plus fridge's icemaker lasted only a few years. I saw on you tube a video showing what may be causing the problem. After ruling out any problem with the electric eye mechenism I figgured it had to be the actual icemaker itself. I purchased one ,it installed very easy and is now working fine.Had I known it would be this easy to diagnose and install I would have replaced it years ago.

Checked the hose above the icemaker to see if water was frozen. Ran the freezer at a lower temp to see if lines would unfreeze. Took a wild guess that a component was broken in the icemaker, but it was cheaper to get the entire assembly anyways. Removed about 4 screws under icemaker, disconnected icemaker, jiggled and slid the icemaker and tray out, traded out icemaker assemblies, and put it all back, probably took 10-15 mins, and it made ice again!
