The icemaker on oour Kenmore was fading fast. Ice was only being harvested once every 4-5 hours instead of every two. Then finally it stopped altogether. I did some research and decide that it was the motor assembly that needed to be replaced. I ordered the part and within 3 days it arrived. Within 45 minutes I replaced the part with the assistance of the youtube video. I am not a Mr. Fix-it but this was fairly straight forward. I am now a hero.

Pulled out the icemaker. Switched out the Motor Assembly (so easy) and woke up the next morning with ice. Our ice dispenser wasn't working either. This repair inspired me to take the ice dispenser apart and I found that the lever arm wasn't touching the contact when pressed. We now have ice and a working ice despenser. Oh yeah--my wife was so impressed. The part came in on time and it was very very easy to replace.

The small arm in the tray for the ice maker stopped moving. I put hot water in there to see if anything was clogging up the line or the tray, but nothing was. I then pushed on the arm and it moved pretty easily. So I took off the front cover and the motor; I saw that the plastic piece connecting to the gear was broken. So I realigned and replaced the motor. Ice maker is working like a champ again.

I got the new part and unplugged the refrigerator. I removed the wire auto shut-off. I removed the old motor assy. I checked to see if the motor quit running at the same locations as the new one before removing the entire ice maker. Lucky it did, so I installed the new motor assy without having to remove the ice maker. It took 10 minutes at the most.

Verified that the sensors were working. After removing the Ice maker assembly from the sliding track, I found that the indexed drive wheel on the motor had broken off from the shaft mounting. I ordered the Icemaker control and motor assembly from Partselect and swapped out the bad part. It only has three screws to remove and replace so it's fast and easy to fix.

After googling for a parts supplier, PartSelect.com came up. The site was well done and had the Parts List conveniently available. I watched the associated video which was the highest quality "how-to" repair video I have seen. As it turns out, though, the icemaker does not have to be removed from the freezer unit. I removed the icemaker's shutoff lever, removed 3 screws, pulled the motor assy off, slid the new motor assy in place and re-installed 3 screws. Reinstalled the shutoff lever per the video and JOB DONE.
