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 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.

I watched the video so I had an idea of what to do. It was pretty straightforward. Turn off the water, take out the screws, line everything up, replace the part. It went smoothly and the icemaker is working again. :)

First of all, I am a female. So anyone can do this.I simple watched your video. Made the repair very simple. I was surprised that it really worked. I couldn't understand that if the door would still eject ice, why it wouldn't make the ice. It's the same motor. Anyway, It worked and I thank you very much. Very satisfied.

Turned off the water to the ice maker; disconnected the wiring harness to the ice maker; unscrewed it from the freezer (two screws). Unhooked the ice lever bar, opened up the motor assembly. Switch the motor out (two screws). Installed in reverse order.

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.
