Trouble shot the ice maker using the read out codes. Code indicated a faulty ice maker. Ordered a new Ice maker and replaced the faulty ice maker. Only problem is the water funnel one the new ice maker is taller. This required bending the water fill tube to slide the new unit in place.

I ordered two Whirlpool pan slide tracks, which are identical for the right and left sides. The first track popped right in, just like in the installation video, but the other one got stuck during insertion. I noticed that all three plastic tabs of the track were caught on the edges of their respective metal slots, and the plastic was being shredded by the metal when I pushed harder trying to insert the track. I took a kitchen knife and shaved off small slivers of plastic from the areas of the tabs that were catching. After that, the slide could be inserted easily.

This was a very easy repair, it took about 3 min and we were good to go. First, I removed the pan and slid the broken track out of the self-locking slots. If you're unsure as to push or pull the track out of the slot, take a peek at the slots before you start. This came right out. I got the new one, aligned the tabs with the slots, slid it in and made sure it "popped" in place. There was nothing complicated about it. One tip to get the old one out is to make sure you apply some pressure to the track as you are pulling or pushing it out of the self-locking slots. BTW I was able to get my parts in less than 48 hrs, std shipping! Awesome, and thanks!
