Once we figured how to get front off, it was like a puzzle. One piece at a time. So thankful part has been improved and replaced. It works better than before, just wish would have done it sooner.

The icemaker stopped working

Removed icemaker and installed the new one. Went from six tiny ice cubes to four big ice cubes. Ice is of a higher quality, and the ice no longer falls out of the bin as the old ice maker's ice had once been prone to doing. A certified epic win on my part.

Water leaking and freezing on the botton of the icemaker mold

Install was done in reverse order of uninstall. The only thing that made this install a bit tricky is that the fill cup on the replacement icemaker was not the same part as on the original. I could have attempted to trim the replacement fill cup but didn't know how well that would work. I instead elected to install the original fill cup onto the new icemaker. This added a bit of time and complexity to the repair but I followed a repair video for when just the ice mold is being replaced. That video told me how to disassemble the ice mold and timer motor which had to be done to in order to replace the fill cup. It's been about 2 weeks since repair was made and the icemaker seems to be working properly.

water dispenser tube leaking at bottom

TURN OFF WATER (if not already). Cut (or disconnect filler tube at bottom). Remove faceplate from refrigerator ice/water dispenser area. Remove screw holding metal bracket that holds water tube at filler point. Held metal mounting bracelet and pulled old filler tube out. Fed new filler tube thru bottom (hole is located at bottom of left door at hinge). As tube came out at top, pulled length needed to mount to new mounting bracket. Remounted new bracket (with hose attached) with new screw. Reconnected tube at bottom water line connection. Turn on water.

Problem disconnecting the water line tubing

I could not pull the water filtering housing far enough forward to disconnect the water tubing lines (short tubing line). I had to remove the cover from the back of the refrigerator, disconnect the tubing from the back and then pull the water housing forward to disconnect the tubing from the housing. This added another 20 minutes to the job. Otherwise the installation went well.

Ice maker would not make ice

Completely disconnected the power. Just shutting off the ice maker switch does not shut off the power to these boards. The emitter and Receiver boards are located in the side panels of the freezer-one on the right and the other on the left. Just remove the 3 screws in each cover and disconnect the wire connectors and install the new boards. It's very straight forward and easy to do.

No ice, the cabinet was warm, but most annoying it broke every 6 mos since I got it

  • Customer: Cynthia from Wilmington, DE
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

I replaced the thermometer first and it started working again. I was convinced that the reason that it continued to break every 6mos was because no one had ever replaced the fan. The difficult part was getting to it. After trying to get in from the front and from the back I finally figured out that I had to take the bottom off and tilt it on its side. I was then able to get out the pin in the condenser and move it to the side. I could then reach the screws that held in the fan. I then decided to put the fan on the motor and when I was tapping it on with a hammer the back cracked. I attempted to fix it by taking apart the old motor and salvaging the parts but that didn't work. I had to buy another $85 part and take the whole thing apart again. It was easier the second time because I knew which screws and pins I had to remove and how to get to them. I very, very carefully tapped the fan onto the motor and now it is working fine. I will let you know if it is still working at Easter. If it is I will have done a better job than the 7or 8 repairmen who have fixed it in the past

from the back of the freezer unscrewed the water feed to the feed tube. unscrewed the tube from the freezer and removed it. Ran hot water through the fill tube and then reinstalled the tube back into the freezer. Cycled the ice maker and the water started filling the icemaker. Did not use the water inlet valve that I ordered. Matter of fact.. I returned it. Always remember to check the fill tube and make sure it is not frozen.

Removed and replaced the Ice Auger Drive motor. I performed the motor removal and replacement as described in the instructions on your web site. The problem I had was with replacing the rubber seal on the bottom of the auger shaft. I had to remove the cardboard assembly (two screws) in order to get the seal back on the auger shaft. The smaller rubber washer and plastic spacer fell away from the auger shaft when I pulled the shaft out. I had to go back to your schematic and review the proper location of those two items before I did the reinstall. That info was not included in the web instructions. Overall, the web instructions were helpful with my repair. My dispenser now works great.
