Watcheda U-Tube type video of how to repair the unit. This was very helpful in that it identified a screw that had to be removed but was not visible upon my initial observations. Also it mentioned that you had to re-use some of the original hardware in order to complete the replacement. My only complaint is that I believe the failed motor could have been replaced for about $15 but I was not able to find that specific part in any catalog and opted to replace the entire unit. Overall I am extremely well pleased. Everything now works fine.

The replacement ice maker water inlet was taller than the original. I had to disassemble both the new and old unit to replace the new water inlet with the old one. The video was very helpful in troubleshooting, removing and installing the unit.

Had repair people in a year ago and could not find problem-They changed water flow meter valve-(costly for parts and labor) Did not solve problem!I needed ice so purchased external ice maker used for 1 year-Told myself I know it is the ice maker-Got on line and ordered from PART SELECT! Only took a few days for part to arrive-I had watched video for changing parts out on line-Took only 10 minutes to duplicate video-In 45 minutes I had first ice in over 12 months-Has been working perfect since installation!Don Smith

Followed the instructions in the PartSelect video. It was so easy. Replaced the old ice maker on Monday. Visited a friend on Tuesday. Her Kenmore Frig's ice maker was broken, would not make ice. I told her how easy it was to fix and ordered the part for her today. It should be here by Tuesday and I will install it as soon as it comes in.

We were reluctant to replace the icemaker on a 10-year old refrigerator that required a leak to be patched 2 years ago, but since the patch seems to be holding, we went ahead with the icemaker. Was about the same price as buying a portable icemaker and who wants that sitting on the counter?

Removed the broken icemaker. Removed the tray that is attached to the old icemaker and screwed it into the new icemaker. Then, I installed the new icemaker first by plugging in the control wires, then sliding the icemaker into the freezer, then screwing it into freezer. BY next morning, the icemaker made ice!

Ordered part and w/ help of a friend in it went.Devlivery was prompt. Receptionist on phone was great. If every company had one like her everyone would be a happy camper.Would recommend your company to anyone.It was a most pleasant experience.

The icemaker would occasionally dump the ice in the tray. I could unfrost the tray and then it would seem to work for a couple of times and then stop again.

I removed the old icemaker and tore it apart as much as I could to see if I could see anything obvious. I also took a resistance reading on the heating coil in the bottom of the icemaker. It was good. I then hooked the old icemaker back up with the end cover off. The plastic wheel on the end of the ice maker did not move. I then ordered a new ice maker, installed it and it has worked perfectly ever since.

I followed the easy to follow video instructions posted on the same web page I used to order the icemaker. I chose to order the complete icemaker rather than the motor assembly because based on price, ease of installation, and the chance something else could fail in the icemaker unit I preferred to order and install the complete assembly. PartSelect was a great web site to use to purchase appliance parts and get instructions. Didn't think companies did this any more. Great!
