Read on line that the motor module in the ice maker was likely to be the problem. I ordered the part and it came in as a complete module. All I had to do was to remove the cover, take out 3 philips screws, remove the old module and install the new one. I plugged it back in and had ice within the hour.

ice maker gears stripped/ bearing & cup assy broken

  • Customer: Timothy from Lake Geneva WI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

The bearing & cup assembly was broken and the gears in the drive assy were stripped. Unfortunately I couldn't find anywhere to buy the gears without buying the entire motor assy with the gear box already on it. Cost was up to $85 with shipping but at least it now works fine.

To repair: a 1/4 nut driver will take off screw below ice maker and all you need to do is loosen the 2 screws above the ice maker then push it upward slightly and it will slide off the top 2 screws. Then pull the power connector off from behind the ice maker at the side of the refridge. Then pull straight out and it will slide off the water fill tube. Now with unit out of refridge I took the cover off the front of the ice maker and removed the 3 philip screws. I then pulled the motor/gear assy off from the chassis of the ice maker. I then had to remove the 2 philip screws on the chassis (under the motor/gear assy) to remove the cube maker/element from the chassis. This allowed me to remove the rotating cube spatula bar to replace the filler cup/bearing assy. Then I reinstalled the spatula bar and the 2 philip scews on the chassis to the cube maker/element assy. I then installed the new motor/gear assy to the chassis and installed the 3 remaining philip screws. Put the cover back on the ice maker and inserted assy back into the refridge by first reattaching the power connector and then sliding backward onto the water fill tube and then slipping over the top of the 2 top screws on the refridge. Then I installed the screw below the ice maker and tightened all 3. Presto - repair done in 30 minutes and perfect cubes were spitting out within the hour.

no ice

Did not have to remove the complete ice maker. Only the front part that housed to motor assembly. Two Clips removes to cover and three screws removed the motor unit and the rest was in reverse. No wires to disconnect or connect. It just plugs in to unit. Works great and cheaper than from Sears Parts Direct shipping cheaper also. Will buy from Part Select again.
Thanks, Ron

ice maker not making ice

When I took the ice maker apart I noticed that the shaft of the motor control wheel was broken so when it turned it could not trip the control contacts nor rotate the ice ejector fingers. I ordered a new control and motor assembly which arrived two days later. It was very easy to install and now the ice maker works perfectly.

PartSelect was a great help. A local appliance parts warehouse stocked parts for my ice maker but they only stocked a kit that contained other parts that I did not need. Ordering from PartSelect saved me over $35.

Would not make ice...plastic gear broken on module

after reading reviews on changing the control module I decided it couldn't be very difficult. I was rewarded because it wasn't. It took less than 20 minutes to change the module. At first I was concerned because the wheel did not start turning as soon as power was connected. I discovered this is normal and 30 minutes later the icemaker was making ice again. Simply remove the 3 screws, carefuly pull the module away from the shutoff arm, and pull it out. putting the new one in is the exact reverse. You just have to realign the ejecter cam in the icemaker with the new module so it slides right in.

Teeth on the wheel were broken off.

I found your website while searching the internet for a repairman. My fridge was making strange clicking sounds and no ice. I suspected a certain part after reading the testimonials on your website. The part I ordered was delivered in less than a week and I installed it in less than 5 minutes. I probably saved about $200.00. Thank you!!!

After reading the stories on your site, I figured it had to be the motor control. Easy to take off, but had to take the tray off the freezer wall to get the ice out. Once I did that it was a piece of cake. Now I have ice (and vodka tonics...).

Would not complete ice-making cycle.

Unplugged the refrigerator. No need to remove the entire icemaker (IM). Removed the old module by taking out the 3 screws and carefully wiggling it free from the icemaker. Lined up the blade arm with the new module, pushed the module onto the IM and put in the 3 screws. Lowered the shut off arm and plugged in the refrigerator. Once the freezer compartment reached the proper temperature, the IM began making ice with no further problems.

The water line to the ice maker freezes up-no ice

Remove the ice maker with two screws in the side and one screw in the bottom. You don't have to completely remove the side screws but you do have to remove the bottom screw.
Lift up on the ice maker and reach behind it and unplug the wiring harness. The tube that lets the water in is accessible from the rear of the fridge. Remone the water line, its only finger tight, and remove the two screws. Pull the tube up and out. Thaw it out with hot water and reinstall. With the ice maker out and on the table, pop off the front cover. Remove two phillips head screws and slide the cube tray off. watch how everything is placed before you slide it off. Slide on the new tray and reinstall all screws. Reassemble in reverse order that you took it out. Your ready to make ice...

I first turned off the refrigerator. I then used a hair dryer to melt and release the ice by warming the bottom of the mould. Then I turned the fridge back on and let the icemaker discharge the ice. I then turned off the icemaker and ordered the new part. I unplugged the fridge, removed the icemaker (three screws and an electrical connection). Then I replaced the heater/tray with the new one and turned everything back on. Within a couple of hours we began having ice again.
