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.

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!

After I ordered the parts, which was very easy to do using this website I read the other comments in reference to this repair. I am in agreement with anyone that said patience is important! The repair went about as expected, the only thing I had to do different was, after I assembled the door, it would not activate. I checked the microswitches for the ice dispenser and found that the arm on the glass bracket was not hitting the switches. I shaved off part of the horn on the back of the arm and that solved the problem!

Door to the ice shute broken with worn out parts.

Took two screwdrivers and inserted bottom of bezel pryed up and out gently. Removed (4) screws and unpluged (3) electronic plugs removing the circuit board. After you remove bezel & circuit board you have a chance to see what you are doing and get to the problem area with more ease. Remove old parts and reverse it putting the new parts. Process is very simple just pay attention to the order everything was removed. On my frig one of the plastic ears that hold the pin which holds the spring and door was broke. The piece I needed was no longer avaliable. I had to use a piece of the plastic from the old parts I removed, drilled a hole the size of the pin in it and glued it to the broken off ear. Put everything back together and I am pleased to say that everything works fine! So you might need to go a little MacGyver on it. All in all very simple fix.

Followed instructions in video and instructions by other home owners. Installation went very well. Parts Select shipped the repair kit. A good company to do business with. Saved a lot of money by doing the repair myself.

I took the cover off below the ice container to expose the auger motor. Unplugged the electrical hook up in the motor and removed 4 screws and the auger motor dropped out. Set the new auger motor in replacing with the 4 screws. Plugged the line back in the motor replaced the cover. Done. Problem is, still no ice dispensed through the door. Push a glass against the lever to get ice and the door opens as if it is going to dispense and the door pops shut. No ice. Checked the wire harness under the cap on top of the freezer door hinge and saw no problem. Don't know what to do next but call the repair man.

I removed the panel under the second self and backed out the 4 screws that held the motor in place. Disconnected the wireharness and removed the motor. Re attached the wire harness to the new motor and installed the new motor and screws. It still did not work so I did some more investigating in regards to this problem. It turns out that it may be the controller so I will have to order one.

Unplugged refrigerator and removed back cover to expose the compressor and timer/relay assembly. I removed a retainer clip with needle nose pliers, unplugged and removed harness to relay followed by removing the timer/relay assembly together from the compressor. I used the screw driver to pry off very gently. Once removed, the new timer/relay was installed followed by the harness, retainer clip and back cover. The refrigerator was plugged in and my Gladiator man cave fridge was brought back to life.
