I reviewed several You Tube repair videos. Not all of them were correct even though my model and brand were specifically mentioned in the videos. Use You Tube with a grain of salt. After sifting through the you tubes, I distilled the information by looking for consistencies. The most inconsistent information was on how to remove the plastic bezels. Once that was figured out, the repair was very easy. Upon removal, I inspected the solenoid. It was very rusted and was no longer capable of pulling the mechanism closed after it had (successfully) opened the flap. The new solenoid fixed the problem in a flash.

Watching the outstanding, detailed video provided the insight and confidence necessary to place the part order and complete the repair. The most difficult part of the procedure was removal of the front panel that identifies the buttons for various functions (i.e. water, ice, crushed ice, etc). Note that this panel differs slightly from one model to another so the process may be slightly more difficult than pictured in the video. Our refrigerator has removable decorator panels which I removed first (both above and below the dispenser section), an additional step I strongly recommend for owners of models with such panels. To do so, a male Torx socket is required to remove screws at the top of the door, allowing the metal side panel on the left to be removed, prior to sliding the decorator panels out. Now onto removing the front panel as in the video - although the video repairman completed this step without any tools, it must be CAREFULLY pried by hand. Experience has taught me that older plastic parts that "snap in" often become fatigued and suffer stress fractures if not breaking off entirely. This is a fairly rigid piece of plastic on our unit that wasn't cooperative until I coaxed it from one (left) side with a large, flat screwdriver and a little twisting motion to get things started. Once I was able to pop one corner loose, the other 7 connecting tabs were relatively easy to remove (there are 8 total - 2 on each side as I recall). The rest of the process was simple, exactly as demonstrated in the video. Thanks SO MUCH for all of the expertise and high production values that made this repair "a piece of cake". Incidentally, by simply removing the old solenoid ASAP, the door snaps shut, sealing off the freezer compartment while you wait for your new part to arrive.

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.

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...

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.

Quite easy. Turn off water supply and turn off ice maker at switch inside freezer. Unscrew the old unit, separate the electrical connection, and pull it out. New unit comes with parts that do not fit my refrigerator, so visually examine the new and old units, reuse any needed parts from the old unit, such as plastic water ramp. Reconnect the electrical connector, and screw it back in. Turn water supply back on and then turn ice maker back on at switch inside freezer. Discard unused parts. Wait up to 24 hours for new ice cubes to be made.

I watched the video and then read the instructions. Emptied and cleaned freezer compartment. Removed old unit and removed part of old unit to be used in new installation. I then installed the new unit and turned the water back on. I let the unit produce over night and through the first batch of ice away. Because of the various regrigerators this ice maker was used I had a little confusion recognizing our model, but worked through this problem useing some common sense. All around I'm very satisfied with the results.
