Researched the problem on the internet. Identified the icemaker control and motor assembly as the most likely culprit. Ordered a new one. Arrived in two days. Installed it in about 15 minutes. Had ice 3 hours later.

I removed the ice maker, which consist of three 1/4 inch screws to install the water fill cup and bearing. One must loosen the front panel of ice maker to install the fill cup which consist of two standard screws, slide forward enough to install new fill cup. The removal of the Icemaker control was simple, using #2 phillips screwdriver and three screws. Unplug the control and install the new one, replace the three screws and cover. Reinstall the ice maker and within one hour cubes were dropping in the bin. I saved a lot of money repairing myself, which more than covers the shipping cost. Shipping was fast, two days.

ice maker not making ice

My ice maker stopped producing ice after our refridgerator was accidently turned off for 4 days. Note: the on off switch in the front does turn the unit off even though the light stays on, why we need easy access to turn off the fridge is beyond me. Regardless, I spent way more time researching the problem then doing the repair. There is 2 things that could be wrong: 1 was the infra red light located on either side of the freezer, called the transmitter/reciever. 2 was the side of the ice maker control panel. Either one or if I had to replace both it would of been less then the cost of a repair man to come to my home. Prices here a good. I started with learning the diagnostic of the ice make which is learned by watching the red light flash. That informed me that it was working ok. Reference: if you hold back the hinged plate and pretend the door is shut the light should flash, flash, pause. This means its working. I went with the other route of the control module on the ice maker. This part came fast like 2 days. I watched the video on the parts web page and it was simple to do. You do have to wait until the temp goes down below 15 degrees in order for the ice maker to kick in. I won't buy another kenmore for I have had plenty of trouble with this one and its bearly 6 years old. I'm Definetly a fan of this website. Good luck DIY ers!

Ice maker stopped working

After watching a YouTube video I was able to determine that my ice sensor was working properly. I was getting water through the door dispenser so I decided to pull the icemaker. First I removed the 2 hex head screws holding the ice door which gave me access to the icemaker. I removed the hex head screw holding the electrical plug cover on the bottom right side and removed it. I then pushed up on a plastic tab on the bottom left side of the ice maker and slid the icemaker out so I could access the electrical connection. After unplugging the electrical harness(plug/socket) I completely removed the icemaker from the freezer. The white square end cover easily pulled off the icemaker exposing the control and motor assembly. After removing the 3 screws holding the assembly on I pulled the assembly off the end of the icemaker. Installation was as simple as assembling the parts in reverse order making sure that the ice delivery male shaft "flat" mated with the "flat" on the motor drive female socket. After reassembly I went for a bike ride and when I returned about 3 hrs. later I was happy to see my icemaker was making ice again. This is actually easier than it sounds if you have any mechanical apptitude whatsoever.

I saw the question listed on your website with your recommended part to repair. Instead of ordering a whole new ice maker I took the chance and ordered the recommended part for repair. I saw the video and when the part came it was really easy to replace. I only wish I had found your website earlier and not gone without ice for as long as I did. Thanks.

Ice maker just quit working!

After my ice maker just quit working I did some troubleshooting based on the users manual. Found all the electronics to be working fine so I took out the ice maker to see if the water fill tube was frozen, it was not. Next I took off the motor access cover to discover the gear that rotates the spindle was pushed out further on it's drive shaft so it was not meshing with the motor drive gear. I pushed the white gear back on further only to discover the small locking tab on the shaft was broken off allowing the gear to slip outward and become unattached. Had to order a complete motor/gear assembly, installed in 20 minutes and all is fine again. Easy fix.

I removed the ice maker unit completely from the freezer, following a Utube repair video that I found. I originally thought it was just the control board that was defective, because on examination, found a burned-out copper trace on the board, as well as a burned-out plastic connection point. Installing the new parts was a breeze. This icemaker is pretty foolproof, with plastic tabs that line up with the housing. a matter of lining up the screw holes was all that was necessary. Only problem I had was attaching a plastic cover that shields the electrical connection from the water. Once all was installed, I had to wait overnight for the icemaker to make ice. We've had ice ever since! Thank you Partsselect for very courteous and fast service!

Wasn't making ice.

I ordered both icemaker motor assembly and the emitter and receiver (sensors)as I was uncertain as to which was the culprit. We couldn't unplug the frige as it is heavy, so we shut the circuit breaker until we were done with the repair. The icemaker motor was a bit clumsy to remove. My refrigerator was entirely different than the one on the video I viewed, as I have a side by side and the video was of an entirely different model. The video's icemaker was not as clumsy to work with. My husband was a little apprehensive so I rode shot gun and assisted and he did great. He did change the motor first and probably should have waited to see if it worked. He didn't wait, and went ahead and changed the sensors....that was a breeze. We waited about 2 hours and lo and behold once the freezer went down to 14 degrees, the icemaker began it's magic and we had a full supply of ice within 24 hours. So, I saved quite a bit of cash by purchasing the parts I needed at Parts Select and eliminated the repairman's expensive fee. Very happy with end results.

Icemaker stoped making ice.

There are two tabs that hold the icemaker to the rails it sits on. I use a small screwdriver and pushed the tabs up to release the tray and slid the Ice maker out. the cover over the control motor just pops right off. Then I removed three screws from the control motor pulled it off and put the new on, replaced the screws and put the cover back on and slid the icemaker back into the rails. I shut the freezer door and within the five minutes it took me to put my tools back in the garage, it was dumping ice. Very easy to fix. You do not need to remove the screws that hold the icemaker to the tray.
