Found my unit had stopped making ice. I did 20 min. of search on the internet and found this site. I was going to just buy the whole ice maker unit, but after reading a bit more found that the majority was just the motor assembly. I ordered it, 2 days later it was at my front door. I pulled the ice maker unit out, took off the motor assembly, and low and behold a small whit ppiece of plastic fell out. I replaced the motor assembly re installed the ice maker and in one hour I had ice again. As far as ease to do this job from 1 being hard and 10 being super easy, I would rate this a 10+. If you have this kind of problem, I would not waste your money on a repair man, 150.00 service call, Hell no. 65 bucks and your done. Before your wife can make you a pot of coffee this can be out and back in. I don't want to take money away from the appliance repair men but some repairs can be a DIY project. Nut driver and phillips screw driver is all you need.Hope this helps ya.

1. Turn off ice maker and cut power to refrigerator. 2. Remove food from top two freezer shelves and remove top shelf. 3. Using nut driver, remove screw that secures plastic shield to the bottom of ice maker. Remove shield and place it on the empty freezer shelf. 4. Remove ice maker unit by sliding it free of the two rails that hold the bottom of the unit in place ... when it is free of the rails, pivot the left-hand end of the unit downward to allow access to the electrical connection. 5. To pull the electrical connector apart, use a small flat-end screwdriver to pry (gently) just above the little protrusion that keeps the two halves secure during operation. 6. Once the electrical connector has been pulled apart, the unit can be placed on a counter top. Pull the square plastic shield off the left-hand side of the unit (it just pulls off, no screws hold it in place) and set it aside on the counter. 7. Remove the 3 screws that hold the motor assembly in place with a phillip's screw driver. Pull off the motor assembly and push on the new motor assembly ... you might have to "wiggle" the white plastic "fingers" over the ice bin to get the axle aligned properly with the motor assembly ... this is very easy to do. 8. Screw new motor assembly in place. 9. Holding the ice maker at an angle in the freezer, reconnect the electrical connectors, then hold the ice maker level in front of the side rails and push it back in place. Replace the small shield and secure it with the screw and nut driver. Replace freezer shelf and food, restore power to the refrigerator, turn on ice maker switch. Wait a few moments and hear the blessed sound of water filling the ice maker tray. Put away tools, check time (a 10-minute job!), do victory dance ... and then see the shield that covers the motor assembly still sitting on the counter! Repeat process, except this time it is not necessary to take apart the electrical connection ... but, of course, the ice maker now has water in it so when you tip it to push the shield back on ... Suffice it to say, that even though I had to do the job twice, I was thrilled with my $59.00 part ... we live in the boonies so a service call by a repairperson would have cost me more than $200.00 ... plus the part and labor. Blessings upon PartSelect!!!!

Its the easiest repair in the world to do. Took less than 15 minutes. Removed the Icemaker unit from friedge, removed 3 screws replaced motor (very easy to do), 1 hr later I had Ice again! =)

Our ice maker has not worked for years. My husband tried to repair it back then and now we know that he actually broke it. On the front of motor control there is a dial that says "DO NOT ROTATE'. It means do not rotate.

He removed the front of the motor box. He then took the motor panel off and replaced it with the new one! So easy!! We have been buying ice or getting it from a friend that has a commercial ice maker. I could not believe it was that simple and the delivery was unbelievable. I ordered the part either Thursday or Friday and FedEx delivered it Saturday! Thank you so much. Now I have all the ice I need!!!

I watched the video on how to make the repair. It was that easy. The hardest part was disconnecting the electrical. Once that was done it was a really simple fix.

Unscrewed the rear water valve and water line, and front water filter which allowed me to remove the old drip tray. New drip tray is smaller than the original tray, so I needed to put blocking in to keep tray under drip spout. Refastened the water filter, water valve and water line.
