The video on the website on replacing the Icemaker Assembly is great. I watched it then performed the R&R. It would have taken less than 15 mins but I took the time to clean the components which were reused. The water receiver on the new assembly is taller than the original. Luckily the water outlet in the freezer is rubber so I was able to bend it out of the way so I could slide in the new unit. The wiring plug in the new assembly was installed in reverse of the old one so I had to pull the unit back out, turn the wiring plug upside down, put it back in place then re-install the unit. Had a couple minor changes to make but the video is a great teacher.

Checked the hose above the icemaker to see if water was frozen. Ran the freezer at a lower temp to see if lines would unfreeze. Took a wild guess that a component was broken in the icemaker, but it was cheaper to get the entire assembly anyways. Removed about 4 screws under icemaker, disconnected icemaker, jiggled and slid the icemaker and tray out, traded out icemaker assemblies, and put it all back, probably took 10-15 mins, and it made ice again!

I watched the quick video once to see the type, if it matched mine, and the difficulty. I went ahead and ordered the part and within minutes, I had the ice maker installed. The video was so well designed, I only had to watch it once!

Ihis $2000.00 plus fridge's icemaker lasted only a few years. I saw on you tube a video showing what may be causing the problem. After ruling out any problem with the electric eye mechenism I figgured it had to be the actual icemaker itself. I purchased one ,it installed very easy and is now working fine.Had I known it would be this easy to diagnose and install I would have replaced it years ago.

Originally ordered parts I thought would fix ice maker. When I took apart the icemaker assembly I noticed and found the actual part that went bad. Called customer service and was able to return the parts I thought would fix the ice maker, without any problems. I ordered the correct part on the same call. Within a day or so the new part arrived and was installed within 15 minutes. Thanks to the instructions & comments posted on the "Instant Repairman" link. Awesome customer service that can not be bet.

Used hair dryer to melt ice so I could remove old ice maker. Used old icemaker Model #2198597 to order new ice maker. New ice maker water funnel that catches water that goes into the ice mode was higher then the older one. Everything else looked ok. I contacted parts select and was told, if I took the new icemaker apart and it didn't work I could not return it. After three phone calls I was told that I could keep the new ice maker and they would refund my money. So I was left with take the new ice maker apart or cut down the funnel. I cut down the funnel and slid the new ice maker into place. My second choice was to take the new ice maker apart & put on the old funnel. Parts select (Susan) has sent me an email that I would get my money back as the part was not correct. I feel bad about this the way it worked out. It took me about 20 minutes to cut the 1/2 inch off the new funnel.

I unscrewed the (3) screws on the bottom of the ice maker & the (1) screw on the electrical cover plate. I unplugged the ice maker & completely removed it from the freezer. Make sure to pay attention to the locking tabs or your maker will not come out. I took the bottom plate off the old ice maker & attached it to the new one, slid it in & re-plugged it. Tighten all screws back where they are to go & now I have ice. It was a breeze to do this job. Part was completely as described.

I followed the steps in the video posted on webpage describing the part. I watched a sement, performed the steps, and then watched the next segment. I spent more time trying to locate my nut driver set then I spent doing the actual repair.

Our ice maker would work a few days then it would freeze up because it ran to much water in. I finally called Parts Select. The gentleman found the correct parts right away and I had them in two days. Took about 30 minutes to change out with a new unit. Only cost about 120 dollars. If I had known it would of been that easy and that cost effective I never would have took the time to un thaw it so many times with the blow dryer. Buy the new one, quick repair and gets rid of the head ache. Besides you will have ice when you need it. Good luck

I accidentally broke the arm that distributes the cubes to the ice bucket about a year ago. Just recently, the malfunction caused the entire thing to freeze up because the frozen cubes weren't cleared from the ice tray.

Remove 1 screw from the cover that hides the wiring harness, pull out the assembly and disconnect it. Swap the bottom mounting tray to the new ice maker and reverse the process. Way easier than I anticipated. No need to freeze your hands in the freezer, once you have the old one out you're working on the counter.
