The ice maker was not making ice

The ice maker was replaced easily with the help of the repair video. However, that did not fix the problem. With further investigation I found that the more common problem was the emitter boards. I replaced the new ice maker assembly with the old one and ordered the emitter boards. Partselect allow easy return of the new ice maker and I received the emitter boards and easily replaced them and ice is making as I type. Great experience and supper helpful repair videos.

My icemaker lasted about 3.5 years which appears to be longer than most. I first verified that the IR sensor blink codes were OK. Open the freezer and view the status led. Press the emitter flapper to unblock the optics beam. If the LED is on steady: The optics are working properly. If 2 BLINKS FOLLOWED BY 1 SEC. DELAY(Then repeated) The optics are faulty. Replace the emitter and receiver boards. In my case, I need to replace the icemaker. First watch the video. It will show you the hard to see screw and hidden plastic tabs to release the icemaker. Next remove power from the refrigerator. Remove the rear screw and use a flat blade screw driver for the tabs. The fill tube on on my icemaker was a bit longer than in the video so it caught on the icemaker. Carefully bend the rubber tube and the unit will slide out. The electrical connector has a release tab and may required a bit of effort to pull apart. Transfer the other parts per the video. Then reverse the procedure. This really is an easy repair and the video removes the guess work. The ordering process from PartSelect went smoothly and I received the part in 3 days. This is my second order from them and I am very satisfied.

Ice Maker had stopped making ice

Repair was fairly easy to do and service from Partselect was great - part delivered in two days. Two comments to add: 1) the water tube coming down from the top of the ice box into the replacement icemaker was too long (because the "water cup" was higher on the replacement). I just cut a piece of plastic out of the back of the cup so that the icemaker would slide in (still leaving plenty of cup to catch the water). 2) Because the icemaker had been off for several days, ice had formed in the water line just above the icemaker. I had to thaw this ice before water would run into the icemaker.

Unit did not go in as easily as the video showed.

In the freezer on the upper left hand side is a small spr ing loaded door that opens when you open the door and closes when the ice maker container makes contact with it.The video did not show the worker making contact with the door or even addressing the potential problem of the door continually staying open as you try to fit the ice maker into the space vertically as the videe showes. What happened is that I almost broke the door off just trying to fit the maker into its tracks. I finally taped the door closed so I could fit the maker in. I used painters blue tape and so far it is still working. The ice maker is working also. Either make the installer aware of how to temporarily stop the door from inteferring with the install or just have him tape it before he starts to install the new maker.

as discribed in video except the fill tube blocked insertion ofice maker. Had to force it inbecause the fill tube was blocking the slide in of the trayby an inch. Had to force the tray by the fill tube. Thought it might break the plastic box on the tray. After quite a bit of effort, it finaaly slid in. No mention of this problem in the video.

Used the trouble shooting off of YouTube and after finding that the heater was not at the right resistance, ordered a new ice-maker and installed. Very simple and a lot cheaper than going through Sears.

The part arrived very quickly. I set up the laptop computer on the counter and started the instruction video (THEY ARE THE BEST!). With just a few starts and stops of the video during the installation in less than 15 minutes the repair was complete! The next day I had more ice than I needed. What a fabulous way to make appliance repairs at minimal cost! I will ALWAYS use PartSelect for any future repairs. I should also tell you that a 70 year old Woman did this repair - easily! If I can do it so can you!!

I changed out the complete ice maker by first un-plugging fridge from the electrical outlet,then taking out the three screws holding the ice maker in place, unplugging electrical connector that operates the module and then removed by sliding ice maker away from fridge. Replaced old ice maker and re-plugged connector. Screwed ice maker back into place and plugged fridge back into outlet. Within 5 minutes we could hear the water dispenser filling the ice maker. Within another hour we had our first batch of ice.
