After watching the video, it was just a matter of pulling one screw, changing the icemaker and reinstalling the screw. Super simple and now we have 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)

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.

I followed the easy to follow video instructions posted on the same web page I used to order the icemaker. I chose to order the complete icemaker rather than the motor assembly because based on price, ease of installation, and the chance something else could fail in the icemaker unit I preferred to order and install the complete assembly. PartSelect was a great web site to use to purchase appliance parts and get instructions. Didn't think companies did this any more. Great!

Our ice maker would work a few days then it would freeze up because it ran to much water in. I finally called Parts Select. The gentleman found the correct parts right away and I had them in two days. Took about 30 minutes to change out with a new unit. Only cost about 120 dollars. If I had known it would of been that easy and that cost effective I never would have took the time to un thaw it so many times with the blow dryer. Buy the new one, quick repair and gets rid of the head ache. Besides you will have ice when you need it. Good luck

I accidentally broke the arm that distributes the cubes to the ice bucket about a year ago. Just recently, the malfunction caused the entire thing to freeze up because the frozen cubes weren't cleared from the ice tray.

Remove 1 screw from the cover that hides the wiring harness, pull out the assembly and disconnect it. Swap the bottom mounting tray to the new ice maker and reverse the process. Way easier than I anticipated. No need to freeze your hands in the freezer, once you have the old one out you're working on the counter.

Used hair dryer to melt ice so I could remove old ice maker. Used old icemaker Model #2198597 to order new ice maker. New ice maker water funnel that catches water that goes into the ice mode was higher then the older one. Everything else looked ok. I contacted parts select and was told, if I took the new icemaker apart and it didn't work I could not return it. After three phone calls I was told that I could keep the new ice maker and they would refund my money. So I was left with take the new ice maker apart or cut down the funnel. I cut down the funnel and slid the new ice maker into place. My second choice was to take the new ice maker apart & put on the old funnel. Parts select (Susan) has sent me an email that I would get my money back as the part was not correct. I feel bad about this the way it worked out. It took me about 20 minutes to cut the 1/2 inch off the new funnel.

I unscrewed the (3) screws on the bottom of the ice maker & the (1) screw on the electrical cover plate. I unplugged the ice maker & completely removed it from the freezer. Make sure to pay attention to the locking tabs or your maker will not come out. I took the bottom plate off the old ice maker & attached it to the new one, slid it in & re-plugged it. Tighten all screws back where they are to go & now I have ice. It was a breeze to do this job. Part was completely as described.

I followed the steps in the video posted on webpage describing the part. I watched a sement, performed the steps, and then watched the next segment. I spent more time trying to locate my nut driver set then I spent doing the actual repair.

After viewing the very clear video. Remove the ice maker door by first lifting the door and pressing in on the hinges. Remove the screw in the back lower right of ice maker with a one quarter inch nut driver and lift out the cover to expose the wiring harness. Pull the ice maker unit forward and out and reach behind it to pull out the wiring harness plug. The plug only comes out if you depress the small "push clip" in the center of the harness plug. Turn the old ice maker unit upside down and remove the three screws again with the one quarter inch nut driver to lift off the plastic cover. The wiring harness plug need to be pushed through the plastic housing to remove the plastic cover completely. Reinstall the plastic cover on the new ice maker. Reverse the procedure and install the new ice maker. This is really a simple repair if you watch the video.
