This fridge is s ultraease 2 its 8 years old. Icemaker would'nt make ice. Its fairly easy all you do is take out the screws i recommend a power drill tho. Pop out the cover put the new motor in. I did'nt hear anyththing or see anything for a hour or two thought it did'nt work. Then i heard a clunk like ice falling into a bin. 3 hours later ice was falling frequently.

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.

Replaced Control and Motor on the basis that most respondents found this unit to be at fault when the icemaker failed. Unfortunately, this wasn't the problem. Sudsequently, I replaced the electrionic boards which did fix the system. It would have been helpful (and less expensive) if the PatrsSelect website provided more help with problem diagnosis. Otherwise, the website is great!

It was a very simple repair. The only frustration is that all I needed was a small plastic part on the motor assembly but had to buy the entire assembly. Glad that I found the assembly much cheaper on your site, but wish I could have just bought the small plastic part.

This is a built-in refer. I just turned of the power by flippig the breaker to the refer in electrical panel. Then I removed the white cover to the ice maker and the metal arm no tools required.Then I removed the 3 screws and removed the motor & control assembly then replaced it with the new one. Easy put 3 screws back in snapped cover back on and reinstalled metal arm flipped breaker back on done 15 minute or less. (note: It's helpfull to use a small mirror to see the back side of control if you don't remove ice maker from refer to reinstall metal arm.)Also in my case everything was working now but it didn't produce ice? I looked in the rear of ice maker where the water supply comes in and it was frozen. (little trough or shute.)I carefully chipped ice out with ice pick came out easy. Started making ice and filled up over night everything working great. Final note: (if water freezes up in shute again it's the water valve that needs replacing. I was told that it means it's leaking.) Hope this is helps.

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!

Unpluged the refrigerator. Removed the cover on the control unit by inserting a screw driver under the metal clips. Removed the three screws frrom the front of the control unit. Pulled toward the back of the refrigerator on the metal loop which turns the icemaker on and off and it came loose where it goes into the control unit. Wiggled the unit and it came free. place the new unit in approximately the right position. Reached into the icemaker and moved the ice eject leavers so the shaft would enter the control unit with the flat side of the ejector in the right position. Gently pushed the control unit into its place and aligned the screw holes. Replaced the three screws. Inserted the wire shut off loop into the hole on the back of the control unit housing. Pluged in the electric. The ice maker worked.

Based on research done on your site, I concluded that my problems was the icemaker control. The video showed me exactly what to do. During removal, I dropped the unit and broke the water fill cup. Ordered the control unit (as well as a replacement for the broken cup). Installed in about ten minutes. You really can't mess up. It only goes in one way! The next day, bucket was full of ice. Thanks for all the help. I figured I saved $200.00 on the cost of a technician call.
