I followed the instructions on the information sheet provided as well as watching a demo video on YouTube. Actual replacement of the emitter and receiver boards took only 5 minutes, but I was not sure it was working till I could here the ice maker harvesting the cubes. Still wanted to be sure so I kept an eye on it for a few hours. Each time I looked in there was more ice. I am so glad I found your website. Parts were about $106. Labor would have cost that much and the repair guy I talked to on the phone said he would probably have to replace the whole unit.

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.

Pulled the shelf out and replaced the slide rails. I watched the how to video on your website and it was very accurate and easy! Took longer to empty the drawer than it did to make the repair. Easy to do!

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.

Set out an area large enough to lay the door down once I took it off the refrigerator. Took off the top screws and hinge. Had my 12 year old so help me with the door and hand me all the tools so I could quickly change out the parts and not leave the Refrigerator open for too long. I think from the moment we took the door off to the moment it was back on was probably about 5-6 minutes tops. That is how easy this was. All the parts fit and thank you to PartSelect and it great website that advised me of the second part that went with the first if not I would never have known. Thanks again!!

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.

Water was not filling the ice tray and the ice tray coating was comming off. After the service repairman wanted to charge me over 500.00 for just replacing the ice maker, it told him to take a hike. I bought the icemaker and the electronic controls, which controls when and how much water goes into the tray for less than 250.00 and it took me less than 15 minutes to replace.
