This was a very easy repair. Of course start by unplugging the power cord. Take out the lower freezer drawer. Unplug the wiring harness from the ice maker at the rear of the freezer. Undo 3 screws with a 1/4" nut driver. The ice maker will come right out. You don't have to undo any water connections, the feed tube just slides into a guide in the ice maker. Once the ice maker is out, unplug the harness from the old one and snap it into the new one. Same with the cover. Reassemble in reserse order. Plug the power cord back in and wait a couple of hours for the familiar sounds of ice cubes falling into the tray.

Took under 5 minutes. Removed two screws and unplugged the wire bundle from refrigerator. Removed old unit. Put old wire bundle on new unit. Plugged wire bundle back into refrigerator and remounted the new ice maker. Could not have been easier. Watched the video first, it was very helpful.

Removed the old icemaker and installed the new one. The first one we ordered lasted about 4 weeks and pooped out. Parts Select was very nice and gracefully sent another in two days time. This one has been installed and is working fine...Hope it stays that way.

Thanks...Ron Norwood

Followed the online PartSelect video instructions and it was very helpful. The ice maker has to cycle through before it starts making ice so don't be alarmed when nothing happens when you first hook it up.

First, unplug power to Fridge, then remove ice bin and set to one side, then remove the clip that holds the fill tube down by pulling up on it, and remove the fill tube. Remove the two top screws on ice maker assembly first, as the bottom screw will support unit. Then remove the single bottom screw. Rotate the Ice Maker slightly down and this will expose the electrical connector. With a short, small, flat head screwdriver in your left hand, depress the locking tab for the connector, while your right hand supports the assembly and pulls the connector outward to disconnect. Remove old Ice Maker, and remove the bin full lift wire, it's a slide in fit and install in your new unit. Check your fill tube water diverter on the right side of Ice Maker unit , you may need to remove the blank, it is U shaped and molded for easy removal, but use caution when removing to be on the safe side, this allows the fill tube to go down into the diverter, Re-Assemble in reverse order. Give the unit plenty of time to reach proper operating temp, and cycle. Make sure and discard your first Ice cycle.

Piece of cake. Removed two screws, pivoted old ice make up, lifted it out of the mounts. Installing the new one was just the reverse.

Identifying the correct replacement ice make was easy also, due to the photographs on PartsSelect.com

Icemaker was leaking, leaving black chunks in ice

  • Customer: Jay from Phoenix AZ
  • Difficulty: Really easy

I simply removed the 3 screws holding the unit into the freezer with a nutdriver, then disconnected the power plug (a little hard to get to, and requires releasing a small tab in a hole in the main body). The icemaker came right out with no problem. I then had to change out the water funnel inlet because mine had a different style than the one provided on the new one. This was easy also, just remove 2 phillips head screws that are set deep in 2 holes in the face of the motor drive unit, then pull the whole assembly apart far enough to allow the ejector blades to slip out of the hole through the inlet funnel, then snap the funnel loose to move it to the new one (the same technique to be used on the new one, then re-assemble in reverse order).
