Ice Maker stopped making ice

The ice maker stopped making ice. Cold water was still available at the freezer door dispenser which seemed to isolate the problem to the ice maker control board/motor. My ice making unit was not identical to the one in the video, but close. After disconnecting the power, I was able to replace the control board/motor without having to remove the entire ice making unit. Total time for repair was under 15 minutes.

Undid the bolts to the ice maker, unplugged it and took it out of the freezer. Removed the cover, unplugged the motor and unscrewed the motor from the casing. To install new motor screw it into the casing, plug it in and replace the cover.

My husband watched the video on the repair and followed it step by step...works like a charm! The repair shop wanted 299.55 to fix it - the part was 79.00....big savings by doing it ourselves.

watched the video provided on this site. I thought I would have to buy the whole glass panel and then the video showed how the tacks pop off and how easy it was to put the new ones on. So glad to have found this site. I will check here whenever I need a part. Also, the item arrived in 2 days!

I removed the part and read the part number and ordered the motor. I received the motor three days later. It took about ten to fifteen minutes to replace the motor and another ten minutes to replace all the other parts. The motor was the answer. We have dispensed ice again.

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.

Your directions were clear. When I took the control off the left side of the freezer compartment the resister burnt the plastic so badly that I had to pry cover loose. This may be a problem for others. Thanks from this "Do-it-yourselfer".

The icemaker on oour Kenmore was fading fast. Ice was only being harvested once every 4-5 hours instead of every two. Then finally it stopped altogether. I did some research and decide that it was the motor assembly that needed to be replaced. I ordered the part and within 3 days it arrived. Within 45 minutes I replaced the part with the assistance of the youtube video. I am not a Mr. Fix-it but this was fairly straight forward. I am now a hero.
