I thought I would have to have a serviceman replace the unit. After watching your video, I thought I would try it. It was much easier than I had imagined. If it wasn't for your video, I probably wouldn't have tried it. Thanks for your help. I will definitely check with your company first, for the next repair odyssey.

After watching the video, it was just a matter of pulling one screw, changing the icemaker and reinstalling the screw. Super simple and now we have ice!

Just as the video described except there was a rubber fill tube hanging down from the top of the freezer that made it a little more difficult to install the new icemaker(I just had to bend it up and hope it didnt break)

The unit came out easily but the wire harness connector just didn't want to disconnect. The ice cold plastic was very difficult to work with and I had to use a screw-driver edge to pry it up and apart.

I tried to put in the model ice maker sent to me but it was not an exact match to the one I was replacing. The water fill cup on the upper right side was too tall to fit over the rubber fill hose so I had to take the old ice maker apart and swap it with the new cup. Then I installed the new maker but it did not work over night. I took it back out and disassembled it and saw condensation on the electric motor housing which had turned to ice. I figured that if there was ice on the outside then there was probably some on the inside as well. I used a hair dryer to evaporate the ice/moisture and then re-installed the unit. It has worked fine ever since. I do not think that I needed the entire ice maker unit but just the timer motor. I could have saved some money and time if I had known that the motor was available by it's self. The shipping was fast for the unit but look over the unit that you are replacing and make sure the picture of the new unit is IDENTICAL to it. Watch the video PartSelect offers and it will help you a lot.

Ordered a new Ice Maker and replaced old one. The installation was a breeze except for the water recepticle on the right side of the Ice Maker. It was taller than the original and difficul to move the rubber water line into the new recepticle. Other than that. Problem solved. Been working great ever since.

Water was not filling the ice tray and the ice tray coating was comming off. After the service repairman wanted to charge me over 500.00 for just replacing the ice maker, it told him to take a hike. I bought the icemaker and the electronic controls, which controls when and how much water goes into the tray for less than 250.00 and it took me less than 15 minutes to replace.

stopped making ice

the icemaker stopped making ice. The cubes would get jammed up and finally just stopped all together. Removal of the icemaker and installation of the new one was pretty easy. The only problem was getting the electrical plug undone from the old unit. We have a lot of calcium in our water and I guess it finally ate through and ice was forming under the unit. It was five years old so not bad really. All is good....quick delivery. Thanks.

Ice door assembly broken, freezing up ice maker

  • Customer: Sandra from Burlington NC
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I removed the outside ice door panel with two flat head screw drivers inserted in the slots at the bottom of the panel. You simply pry out until the bottom releases and then you push it up gently to release the top. I then removed the hex head screws that held the outside wire panel and the switches, at this time you need to remove the old plunger that is connected to the top of the ice door assembly. I then disconnected the old heat strip and removed the hex screw that held the ice chute at the bottom. Then I removed the pin and spring that held the ice door assembly at the top. Replaced the parts with new ones provided in the kit. The ice door is no longer freezing up, nor is the ice bucket in the freezer. The freezer is now back to the right temperature, without having to be set on high

Followed the lead of David from Chesterfield in prying off out cover, unplugging it and setting it aside. Unscrewed and pulled out next assemply, and taped it above work area to avoid having to unplug. The pried pulled out pin to right holding ice door hinge to remove old unit. (Notice which way the spring faces before removing!) Unplugged it. Ended up taking off push-dispenser handle (one screw on right) to get easier access. Then reinserted long pin being careful to have spring with two long tongs pointing down. Then put everything back together. USE ALL PARTS!

My handyman did the repair. It was pretty easy for him. It would have been a real puzzle if we had not watched the video instructions. The new parts were slightly different than the old parts, but they fit perfectly. I thawed the frost buildup around the ice door and the opening of the ice bin with a hair drier, to get the ice to come out properly. Thank you so much for the video!

Job went as per your terrific video. Except that when attempting to retrieve the old heater element the glue on the old door was no long pliable. I had to literally tear the old foam apart to get at the heater element and almost damaged it. Not to worry. It worked out well and all is great. Thanks for the very instructive video.

The hardest part was figuring out how to get the front panel escutcheon panel off. With the putty knife under the bottom flange, you need to push down with some effort on the part of the flange where the drip pan slides in and twist the putty knife to disengage the locking tab. Once the panel is off, the rest of the job is easy with the aid of your video. Everything works like new...thanks.
