First we googled the GE site and entered in our model number and that is where we found out what the problem may be. We ordered the part, which we were amazed that it came so quickly. It was installed in less than 5 monutes and "boom" problem solved and my fridge is working again with no clicking sound.

Very simple repair. Watched the installation video of the motherboard on PartSelect.com. and followed the steps. Took me longer to pull the refrigerator out away from the wall than it did to do the installation. Do pay attention to how you remove the plugs from the old motherboard so you plug them in correctly on the new one. We amateurs tend to over think our projects. Watch the video of the pro. Follow their instructions. Be very happy and satisfied with the results. And, remember, ALWAYS unplug your appliance. No shortcuts.

I was able to fairly confidently identify the problem from the on line parts break down. Having had an appliance repairman tell me the inside door seal would need removing to access the dispenser, I searched comments in the blog, and found a note that one only had to poke the two tabs on the bottom of the control panel to remove it, and easily access everything. After that, it was a few screws, some minor assembly to remove/replace the light and switch, and very easy replacement. I was able to reuse the dislodged flapper seal, and didn't need either spring, but compared to the repairman's estimate, I still came out a couple hundred bucks ahead. thanks

Ice maker not making ice and leaking

I took off the front cover of the icemaker assembly and found that the gears were not meshing properly and therefore slipping. I removed the front panel and found that the white plastic cam unit under the large gear wheel had disengaged from the hole in the front plate which is why the gears were slipping. I refitted the cam and wheel and it worked fine but stopped again for the same reason the next day. As the plate appeared to be buckled somehow (not user repairable) and, as the unit was leaking and pooling water (which froze) in the collection unit, I decided to change the whole icemaker.

Ordered about 1300 on a Thursday, it arrived the next day at noon and was fitted straight away. As others have mentioned, the extension cable required to fit into my old fridge made it quite cumbersome however with a bit of juggling and persuasion, I got it to fit into the cut out corner of the ice container so it is completely out of the way. Job done in about 35 minutes, making ice in an hour.

The video on the GE site was great. Showed step by step instructions on how to remove the old ice maker and install the new one. Also helpful was the detail on the water chute which needed to be moved from the old ice make to the new one. Saved hundreds of dollars by not having to have a repairman do this work for me.

Took out one hex screw, disconnect electric couplings, pulled original ice maker out and found that the water supply line to the ice maker was frozen solid as well as the shute cup. Used hair dryer to thaw out the line and the cup reinstaled old ice maker and it worked fine. Did not have to use the new part at all at this time. Am keeping new part for future use.

Watched the video that showed how to disassemble the ice maker. Then went right in and replaced the part and turned it on. It immediately started filling up the ice tray. I still have not been able to find out why it does not make as fast as the original ice maker. The tempeature for the freezer is set pretty cold.

Ice maker made no ice and no water from dispenser.

After what I thought was a thorough troubleshooting of said problem I replaced the Water Valve Assy which was really easy as the video shared, but it did not fix my problem. I had forgotten to pull the water line apart at the coupling below the doors (this was a troubleshooting step in another area). The water not dispensing was due to the line being frozen! Putting all items in a cooler with a couple blocks of ice and leaving the freezer door open for the length of watching a movie, the water was flowing again. Still no ice though. Ice maker vs mother board at the rear of the fridge, Hmmmm. Went with the ice maker, watched video, ole Steve makes the plugs disconnecting look easy, I had to use a flat head screwdriver to open the clips (he doesn't mention that) and I had 4 screws where he had 3. Also he didn't mention about the instructions which gives you 3 options with your unit. I had to re-use my Plastic Stripper Plate along with the Fill Cup and Ice Maker Insert. After completion of installation and about a half hour later, I heard ice fall, Wooohoooo!!! Overall the experience will make me think to utilize PartSelect again when needed. Reasonable prices and decent shipping time. Now the freezer light is out...
