icemaker stopped working

Replaced the icemaker control assembly and ice mold. Icemaker is working perfectly now. We replaced the ice mold (tray) because my husband read on the internet that the ice mold loses its nonstick coating and the ice sticks to the mold, and eventually burns out the control assembly.

I decided not to open the package containing the Control and motor asm because the old one looked like it was cycling properly. I chose to try the inlet valve first, so I ordered the inlet valve and returned this part unopened after replacing the valve asm. It took a week to receive this part and just two days to get the valve.

I called a repairman, who removed the ice maker and reinstalled it, not once -but- three different times and charged me $84.60. (That's all he did.) I remembered, PartSelect, watched video, ordered motor, received in three days, installed in less than fifteen minutes. Within ten minuted water was running in and later ice was dropping into bin, next day bin was full. Wish I had trusted myself and looked up my fridge problem on PartSelect before calling that (repair) man, and saved myself $84.60. By the way, I'm a 67 year old female.

I'm sorry I can't help you with this, as one of my sons diagnosed the problem and did the repair for me. It took him maybe five minutes to swap the parts, and the ice maker has been working fine ever since.

I followed the instructions on the PartSelect videos I found on YouTube. (turn off ice maker) 1. remove cover by GENTLY pushing pins aside, 2. remove screw underneath right/rear, 3. remove plastic thingy that the screw went through, 4. push up tabs underneath left & right, 5. slide out ice maker, 6. disconnect wiring harness, 7. pull off plastic cover (no screws), 8. remove 3 screws from controller, 9. install new controller, then reverse 1. thru 8. Unfortunately I was a little heavy handed when removing the cover and broke the bracket. I replaced it at the same time for about $10 (off & on with 2 screws).

At first I just ordered a new motor and followed the instructions on the video . The new motor started working overtime but no water was being delivered to the tray . Ordered a new tray and re-installed. Working fine now. At first the ice was sticking, but that seems to have stopped now. It may be better to pull the ice maker out and check to see if there is damage to the tray before ordering. That way it could save the time of not doing things twice.

Replaced Control and Motor on the basis that most respondents found this unit to be at fault when the icemaker failed. Unfortunately, this wasn't the problem. Sudsequently, I replaced the electrionic boards which did fix the system. It would have been helpful (and less expensive) if the PatrsSelect website provided more help with problem diagnosis. Otherwise, the website is great!

After googling for a parts supplier, PartSelect.com came up. The site was well done and had the Parts List conveniently available. I watched the associated video which was the highest quality "how-to" repair video I have seen. As it turns out, though, the icemaker does not have to be removed from the freezer unit. I removed the icemaker's shutoff lever, removed 3 screws, pulled the motor assy off, slid the new motor assy in place and re-installed 3 screws. Reinstalled the shutoff lever per the video and JOB DONE.
