After replacing the pump in the back of the fridge with no luck I finally decided that it had to be up front. So I ordered the front cover, Ice maker, a new auger and the water dispenser control. For a semi-novice the whole repair was not complicated, my wife had to provide an extra pair of hands to get the ice maker unplugged from inside the freezer but after that it was smooth sailing. Just make sure you look at the water feed tube in the back of the freezer to determine if it's plugged.

Ice maker went to sleep and forgot to wake up.

Followed the instructions. Smooth as silk. This part is better than the original. There appears to be a sensor that beeps when the ice reservoir is full.

I spent 15 - 20 minutes just hunting/deciding which of several sets of parts & directions to follow. The provided directions were not bad; but none of them quite matched my GE ADORA side-by-side model. Once I came up with the actions I would need to take...I was done in 5 minutes! The kit , as I said, came with all the parts one could need (and one or two un-needed parts included for other model GE refrigerators) I am very happy with PART SELECT...altough GE doesn't rate as high with me for their declining reliability.

I watched the installation video that described everything that needed to be done to install the part. It was helpful to know the the fork was installed with a left handed thread. I had to use a pipe wrench to break the grip of the fork to the shaft. It would not budge with a screw driver that was detailed in the video. The old motor had gotten water surrounding it and had ice frozen around it. This may have led to the motor failure, and I am not sure how the water leaked in around the motor. I assume the water came from the flow into the body of the ice maker.

Ice dispenser stopped working. No sound made when pressing the switch to dispense ice.

It was simple just applied some common sense to trouble shoot and remove the motor from the housing in the back of the freezer. Then reverse the order when replacing. The part arrived in 1.5 days from when I placed the order. Joshua

I pulled cover off back that housed the board. Unplugged all the wires that went to the board. wires will only fit in one spot so you cannot mess it up. snapped it off the pegs, then replaced new board in same spot. hooked plugs back up and installed ground wire. covered it back up plugged it in and it ran.

I replaced what I thought was a faulty mother board. It was easy to do.

Replacing the motherboard was really easy. However it has not fixed my refrigerator. I continue to have cooling issues with fridge and sometimes with the freezer.

After pulling fridge out from the wall, removing the bottom back panel and inspecting the fridge operating parts, I noticed the condenser fan never comes on. Reading online I found that most of the time the problem is with the main control board. I simply unscrewed the back panel, carefully disconnected the cables from the old board, plugged them back in to the new board, replaced the panel and started the Fridge back up. It cooled right down to normal temperature within the hour! Five years of neurotic behavior around cooling the fridge were over! My wife and I constantly rearranged various fans around the kitchen and joining rooms, opened the cabinet above, taking out the bottom shelf to make more ventilation, pulling the fridge out from the wall several inches, and worrying every time the freezer went up to 9 or 10 or even 20 degrees, and the fridge section up to 40 or even 45 degrees F. I can sleep easy now, and use the fans on us in hot weather, rather than the constant buzz in the kitchen. We can even have a conversation without yelling above the din of the fans!

Freezer too warm

The video instructions were easy to follow as well as the replacement. The replacement Main Control Board is generic to different refrigerators and has more connectors than the original. Be sure to identify the locations prior to removal and installation.
