My ice make had stopped working and I thought it was a water connection issue, however, after removing the motor cover, the plastic gear just fell to the floor. I wrote down the model number and looked the part up online. I ordered the part and it arrived a few days later. Three screws and a new motor and I had a working ice maker. Great experience.

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

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

Icemaker stopped working

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!!!

I removed the on/off bail wire. I then removed the cap over the motor/control panel. I removed the 3 screws, lifted old unit out, installed new unit and then put everything back together. I had ice within 12 hours and it's run like a top since. I am a 64 y/o widow & I try to repair everything myself to save money. I'm very pleased with Part Select & will recommend them to everyone. Awesome shipping time too. Ordered on Thurs. Received on Fri. Fixed on Friday afternoon!

At first I just ordered a new motor and followed the instructions on the video . The new motor started working overtime but no water was being delivered to the tray . Ordered a new tray and re-installed. Working fine now. At first the ice was sticking, but that seems to have stopped now. It may be better to pull the ice maker out and check to see if there is damage to the tray before ordering. That way it could save the time of not doing things twice.
