Ice maker wasn't getting water

I called a repair man out to see what the problem was because my husband just died and I didn't want to pay such high prices for a repair. He told me I needed a new motor for the ice maker and it would be a total of about 305.00. I couldn't believe the price. It cost me 59.99 for his diagnosis. I went to your web site and found the part and watched you installation video. I am 65 years old and I was able to install the new part in less than 15 min. The part was about 95.00. I saved 150.00 by doing it myself. I will always look on line before I have a repair man do a job. I may need them to diagnose the problem, but I will try myself before paying such outrageous fees.

ice maker did not work

The repair video indicated the removal of the entire ice maker when replacing the motor unit that I had ordered. Since I was replacing only the motor unit, located immediately to the front of the ice maker, made visible after removing the snap on cover, I chose not to remove the total unit and removed the old motor unit with the new one ordered and was successful with no further problems. I did turn the water off and disconnected the electrical plug of the fridge first. Three screws removed and replaced and done.

My ice machine stopped making ice I noticed the little dial under the cover stopped turning, so I bought the replacement part. It arrived three days later I un screwed the old one, and put the new in place and screwed it on the only little thing you might need to know is that the metal lever arm that moves up and down is attached to a plastic grommet with a two prong release that protrudes through the hole on the front of the assembly to release the old one just pinch them together. My ice machine works great now it was a very easy part to replace no need to call a repair service anyone with a screwdriver can replace this part

My ice make had stopped working and I thought it was a water connection issue, however, after removing the motor cover, the plastic gear just fell to the floor. I wrote down the model number and looked the part up online. I ordered the part and it arrived a few days later. Three screws and a new motor and I had a working ice maker. Great experience.

after power outage stopped making ice

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.

I removed the on/off bail wire. I then removed the cap over the motor/control panel. I removed the 3 screws, lifted old unit out, installed new unit and then put everything back together. I had ice within 12 hours and it's run like a top since. I am a 64 y/o widow & I try to repair everything myself to save money. I'm very pleased with Part Select & will recommend them to everyone. Awesome shipping time too. Ordered on Thurs. Received on Fri. Fixed on Friday afternoon!

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.

Icemaker stopped working

First, I went online and looked up the directions to remove the ice maker. After several attempts of removing and re-installing it, I found that one of the tines on the wheel had broken of making it impossible for the ice to dispense. I went online to PartSelect, found the exact part I needed, not the new replacement one either, and watched the proper installation directions on the website. When the part came, I did exactly what the video said, which took me maybe 10 minutes, and plugged the fridge back in - make sure you unplug the refrigerator - don't just shut it off!! I heard the water going into the maker, and about 30 minutes later I heard the first batch of ice fall into the bucket!!! It was music to my ears!!!! Oh, and by ordering from PartSelect and doing this simple repair myself, I saved $150.00!! PartSelect is now my new best friend!!!

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.
