The repair video indicated the removal of the entire ice maker when replacing the motor unit that I had ordered. Since I was replacing only the motor unit, located immediately to the front of the ice maker, made visible after removing the snap on cover, I chose not to remove the total unit and removed the old motor unit with the new one ordered and was successful with no further problems. I did turn the water off and disconnected the electrical plug of the fridge first. Three screws removed and replaced and done.

My ice machine stopped making ice I noticed the little dial under the cover stopped turning, so I bought the replacement part. It arrived three days later I un screwed the old one, and put the new in place and screwed it on the only little thing you might need to know is that the metal lever arm that moves up and down is attached to a plastic grommet with a two prong release that protrudes through the hole on the front of the assembly to release the old one just pinch them together. My ice machine works great now it was a very easy part to replace no need to call a repair service anyone with a screwdriver can replace this part

First, I went online and looked up the directions to remove the ice maker. After several attempts of removing and re-installing it, I found that one of the tines on the wheel had broken of making it impossible for the ice to dispense. I went online to PartSelect, found the exact part I needed, not the new replacement one either, and watched the proper installation directions on the website. When the part came, I did exactly what the video said, which took me maybe 10 minutes, and plugged the fridge back in - make sure you unplug the refrigerator - don't just shut it off!! I heard the water going into the maker, and about 30 minutes later I heard the first batch of ice fall into the bucket!!! It was music to my ears!!!! Oh, and by ordering from PartSelect and doing this simple repair myself, I saved $150.00!! PartSelect is now my new best friend!!!

Motor to eject ice noisy and not working

Greatest thing about this company was properly describing in an easy clear manner along with the video. A picture is worth a thousand words. A video is worth? Disconnecting wires in back of freezer was a little hard. I didn't know you would have to wait for a complete cycle before the water would fill and make the first batch of ice. I thought it was not hooked up properly and took it back apart. This time I left it, waited and in a few hours, it started making the first batch of ice. Great company, price and fast shipping. Would definitely buy from again

I have some electronics background but your listed problems helped me narrow down the problem. I ordered the part, removed old part, installed new part (maybe 15 minutes total) and my icemaker started dumping the ice that was in the tray within 20 minutes and making more. That clunking sound of ice was music to me ears and wallet!! Thanks!!

Ice maker wasn't getting water

I called a repair man out to see what the problem was because my husband just died and I didn't want to pay such high prices for a repair. He told me I needed a new motor for the ice maker and it would be a total of about 305.00. I couldn't believe the price. It cost me 59.99 for his diagnosis. I went to your web site and found the part and watched you installation video. I am 65 years old and I was able to install the new part in less than 15 min. The part was about 95.00. I saved 150.00 by doing it myself. I will always look on line before I have a repair man do a job. I may need them to diagnose the problem, but I will try myself before paying such outrageous fees.

Watched the trouble shooting & installation videos , Checked to make sure water was getting to the door.I look'ed closely at the entire unit. every thing seem'ed to be OK. I made a guess as to which part to order. The control motor or the thermostat. The control motor made more sense to me. I made the right guess. works like new.

I called a repairman, who removed the ice maker and reinstalled it, not once -but- three different times and charged me $84.60. (That's all he did.) I remembered, PartSelect, watched video, ordered motor, received in three days, installed in less than fifteen minutes. Within ten minuted water was running in and later ice was dropping into bin, next day bin was full. Wish I had trusted myself and looked up my fridge problem on PartSelect before calling that (repair) man, and saved myself $84.60. By the way, I'm a 67 year old female.

I'm sorry I can't help you with this, as one of my sons diagnosed the problem and did the repair for me. It took him maybe five minutes to swap the parts, and the ice maker has been working fine ever since.

I followed the instructions on the PartSelect videos I found on YouTube. (turn off ice maker) 1. remove cover by GENTLY pushing pins aside, 2. remove screw underneath right/rear, 3. remove plastic thingy that the screw went through, 4. push up tabs underneath left & right, 5. slide out ice maker, 6. disconnect wiring harness, 7. pull off plastic cover (no screws), 8. remove 3 screws from controller, 9. install new controller, then reverse 1. thru 8. Unfortunately I was a little heavy handed when removing the cover and broke the bracket. I replaced it at the same time for about $10 (off & on with 2 screws).
