First I removed the cutter grid assembly by removing two screws. Also disconnect the wire that powers the grid. Once on the bench, simply remove the broken cutter wire. String in the new wire, starting at one end and working back and forth to the other end. Tighten the terminal screw on the first end, and then "strum" the wires, one at a times, pulling the wires taught. Pull the excess wire thru the second terminal, until all wires are taught, with equal tension. Tighten the second terminal screw, and cut off excess wire at both ends. Re-assemble cutter grid into Ice Maker.
Problem solved!

open drain hole

In pre-replacement of the circulation pump, i had read a story about how to make sure you cover the drain hole to prevent hardware from falling down it. Well I followed the instructions in doing so by covering the hole with a paper towel. After removing the pump i noticed some build up behind it. So like any other person i cleaned it up, and i just happened to use the paper towel covering the hole. Im sure you know what im going to tell you next. When replacing the pump i dropped a screw and yes down the drain it went. After a few laughs between my boss and I, I had to share this. When you block the drain with something leave it THERE until the job is done.

Followed instructions in owner's manual, which are also on the bottle of cleaner we ordered. Very easy to use. Only had to take ice out of bin, and cut ice maker off, then add the cleaner to the water pan, and press button to clean. It was very easy, and effective. The buildup of stain, etc. was removed completely. We just had to turn the icemaker back on, and allow time for ice to begin filling the bin.
Thanks very much.

My husband took the old motor out by taking the screws out. Then, he unplugged the fan. We searched your site for the part. With the pictures on the site, we were able to match the motor exactly. The delivery was really fast. When we received the part, he installed the fan and plugged in the power connector. We have replaced refrigerator fans before but anyone can do this with no experience. Just follow the instructions and you're all set.

Removed the back panel on the refrigerator--unplugged the condenser fan motor--removed the motor--placed a small fan to cool the condenser--called Parts Select--ordered the motor--the motor arrived less than 24 hours after I ordered it--replaced the motor and rear panel on the refrigerator--probably saved more than $200.00--Very happy with Parts Select service--Plus I had a misunderstanding with my credit card and John at Parts Select was very helpful --not their fault--excellent company

First I removed the front door by removing the screw on the top hinge. Then removed the upper hinge plate. This allowed removal of the top corner retaining screw. Removed screws at three other top corners. Now I could raise the top at a 45 degree angle to remove the controller cover. The controller was connected with several wire clips and held in place with two screws. Quick swap out and reverse order completion. Ice maker works like new!

Removed the grid.
removed the existing top to bottom wire.
restrung the grid with the new wire.
Then, it cut ice just fine-better than new.
Note:
wire provided is only sufficient to rewire side to side or top to bottom, not both. If you need to do both, you'll need 2. Yes, lots of money for a few feet of wire.
