Swapped out the emitter and receiver control boards. Super easy. Watched the video on how to do it on your website.

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Replaced the Electronic control boards first, emitter and receiver, and that did not fix the problem. I then order the Control board/motor assembly in the ice maker, this did fix the problem and after a couple of hours I had ice. The repair was easy and the videos on the web site show you step by step.

the tutorial is perfectwatch Steve. The boards were bad but coincidentaly so was the motor/control unit. I satrted with the boards, got my LED codes back to normal but still could not dispense. Installed the motor/control unit and had cubes dropping in 15 minutes. Great service, great tutorials.

I ordered both the Ice maker and the control boards as It was for a rental and I did not want to make more trips then necessary to repair. I installed the new control boards and the ice maker and the refrigerator now makes ice.

The ice maker failed

The helpful Partselect video showed a slightly different model, as my icemaker uses optics instead of a bail for shutting off the icemaker. I ordered new optics based on a a customer description that, if the light on the right hand side of the freezer door jamb was blinking 2 flashes followed by a pause,it indicated that the optics were faulty, so I ordered and replaced them. This did not solve my problem. Then on-line I found further information that said I should close the flapper on the left side, and if the light was steady (which it was) the optics were OK. I then ordered the motor unit. I unscrewed the single screw under the right hand side of the track with a 1/4" nut driver, but found that sliding out the ice maker involved a little wiggling and prying, and, because it was awkward to disconnect the electrical connection, I found that it was not necessary to disconnect it. Then, after removing the end cap, it was a straight forward process to replace the motor, while adjusting the shaft to line up. Then,reverse all procedures and I now have ice. Success!

Your directions were clear. When I took the control off the left side of the freezer compartment the resister burnt the plastic so badly that I had to pry cover loose. This may be a problem for others. Thanks from this "Do-it-yourselfer".

I simply followed the step by step instructions demonstrated in the online videos for replacing the electronic control boards - emitter and receiver. Just that simple. 15 minutes later the repairs were completed. We've had ice ever since.

I checked the trouble shooting guide with the refrigerator and all signs pointed to the Electronic control boards that sense when the ice tray is full. After reading what other customer posted on this site I ordered the parts. I received the parts in two days time and had a harvest of ice within minutes of installing it. Thanks PartSelect. Scott

Installation was extremely easy for a novice. However, I previously replaced the icemaker control and motor assembly. That did not solve the problem. I now replaced the electronic control boards - emitter and receiver. The operational test shows the emitter and receiver are functioning properly yet the ice maker still does not work.

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.

Motor to eject ice noisy and not working

Greatest thing about this company was properly describing in an easy clear manner along with the video. A picture is worth a thousand words. A video is worth? Disconnecting wires in back of freezer was a little hard. I didn't know you would have to wait for a complete cycle before the water would fill and make the first batch of ice. I thought it was not hooked up properly and took it back apart. This time I left it, waited and in a few hours, it started making the first batch of ice. Great company, price and fast shipping. Would definitely buy from again
