The online video shortened the learning curve, and the cut the repair time in half.

Our ice maker has not worked for years. My husband tried to repair it back then and now we know that he actually broke it. On the front of motor control there is a dial that says "DO NOT ROTATE'. It means do not rotate.

He removed the front of the motor box. He then took the motor panel off and replaced it with the new one! So easy!! We have been buying ice or getting it from a friend that has a commercial ice maker. I could not believe it was that simple and the delivery was unbelievable. I ordered the part either Thursday or Friday and FedEx delivered it Saturday! Thank you so much. Now I have all the ice I need!!!

This is a built-in refer. I just turned of the power by flippig the breaker to the refer in electrical panel. Then I removed the white cover to the ice maker and the metal arm no tools required.Then I removed the 3 screws and removed the motor & control assembly then replaced it with the new one. Easy put 3 screws back in snapped cover back on and reinstalled metal arm flipped breaker back on done 15 minute or less. (note: It's helpfull to use a small mirror to see the back side of control if you don't remove ice maker from refer to reinstall metal arm.)Also in my case everything was working now but it didn't produce ice? I looked in the rear of ice maker where the water supply comes in and it was frozen. (little trough or shute.)I carefully chipped ice out with ice pick came out easy. Started making ice and filled up over night everything working great. Final note: (if water freezes up in shute again it's the water valve that needs replacing. I was told that it means it's leaking.) Hope this is helps.

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!

It was a very simple repair. The only frustration is that all I needed was a small plastic part on the motor assembly but had to buy the entire assembly. Glad that I found the assembly much cheaper on your site, but wish I could have just bought the small plastic part.

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.

I did'nt hear anyththing or see anything for a hour or two thought it did'nt work. Then i heard a clunk like ice falling into a bin. 3 hours later ice was falling frequently.

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.

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.
