I followed the easy to follow video instructions posted on the same web page I used to order the icemaker. I chose to order the complete icemaker rather than the motor assembly because based on price, ease of installation, and the chance something else could fail in the icemaker unit I preferred to order and install the complete assembly. PartSelect was a great web site to use to purchase appliance parts and get instructions. Didn't think companies did this any more. Great!

watched video, moved all wifes crap in freezer, replaced. Done, maybe 15 minutes total.

The icemaker would occasionally dump the ice in the tray. I could unfrost the tray and then it would seem to work for a couple of times and then stop again.

I removed the old icemaker and tore it apart as much as I could to see if I could see anything obvious. I also took a resistance reading on the heating coil in the bottom of the icemaker. It was good. I then hooked the old icemaker back up with the end cover off. The plastic wheel on the end of the ice maker did not move. I then ordered a new ice maker, installed it and it has worked perfectly ever since.

I thought I would have to have a serviceman replace the unit. After watching your video, I thought I would try it. It was much easier than I had imagined. If it wasn't for your video, I probably wouldn't have tried it. Thanks for your help. I will definitely check with your company first, for the next repair odyssey.

After watching the video, it was just a matter of pulling one screw, changing the icemaker and reinstalling the screw. Super simple and now we have ice!

Just as the video described except there was a rubber fill tube hanging down from the top of the freezer that made it a little more difficult to install the new icemaker(I just had to bend it up and hope it didnt break)

ice maker no longer worked

The unit came out easily but the wire harness connector just didn't want to disconnect. The ice cold plastic was very difficult to work with and I had to use a screw-driver edge to pry it up and apart.

I tried to put in the model ice maker sent to me but it was not an exact match to the one I was replacing. The water fill cup on the upper right side was too tall to fit over the rubber fill hose so I had to take the old ice maker apart and swap it with the new cup. Then I installed the new maker but it did not work over night. I took it back out and disassembled it and saw condensation on the electric motor housing which had turned to ice. I figured that if there was ice on the outside then there was probably some on the inside as well. I used a hair dryer to evaporate the ice/moisture and then re-installed the unit. It has worked fine ever since. I do not think that I needed the entire ice maker unit but just the timer motor. I could have saved some money and time if I had known that the motor was available by it's self. The shipping was fast for the unit but look over the unit that you are replacing and make sure the picture of the new unit is IDENTICAL to it. Watch the video PartSelect offers and it will help you a lot.

Ordered a new Ice Maker and replaced old one. The installation was a breeze except for the water recepticle on the right side of the Ice Maker. It was taller than the original and difficul to move the rubber water line into the new recepticle. Other than that. Problem solved. Been working great ever since.

stopped making ice

the icemaker stopped making ice. The cubes would get jammed up and finally just stopped all together. Removal of the icemaker and installation of the new one was pretty easy. The only problem was getting the electrical plug undone from the old unit. We have a lot of calcium in our water and I guess it finally ate through and ice was forming under the unit. It was five years old so not bad really. All is good....quick delivery. Thanks.

Ice guide was broken. A glued fix failed so it was time to replace.

Hardest part of the whole project was figuring out how to get the bezel off the door to expose the problem area. The rest was simply removal and replace parts. The actuator arm had epoxy on it from the attempted repair and had to be replaced. Easy fix. If you can use a screwdriver and pay attention of how it comes apart you can do this.
