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.

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.

The replacement went very easy, however I still have no ice. I'm not sure what to check for next. Any ideas? I unplugged it for about 2 minutes and nothing. I do not hear the water filling the unit, the water on the door works fine though.

Initial diagnosis incorrectly led me believe the problem was with the optic eye. After replacing the optic eve and still no ice, I realized the problem had to be with the actual ice maker itself. The removal of the old ice maker and installing of the new one took less than 5 minutes. This of course was after watching the repair video first. I still feel that I saved money by doing the repair myself instead calling in a appliance repair man, even with the added cost of the probable unneeded optic eye replacement. I am very satisfied.

The ice maker quit working about 4 years after we purchased this refrigerator. I asked several contractors if they knew what the problem could be. All believed it had something to do with the water line being stopped up. However, when I looked at the water line, it seemed fine. Thankfully when I googled about repairing this refrig, I came upon this website. It stated statistically that the Icemaker assembly part was the problem. Guess what? Replaced it and it works! The repair was a little tedious, so I got my next door neighbor to help. He has a few moments struggling getting it out and the new one in, but overall, it was not too difficult. I believe I could have done it with the video's help but certainly would have taken me longer.
