Ice maker was leaking and needed to be replaced

  • Customer: Rochelle from New City NY
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

I followed the instructions shown on the YouTube video on the Parts Select site. I had to make a few modifications. There were two nuts that had to be loosened to lift the ice maker off the freezer wall. The mounting bracket had to be transferred from the old icemaker to the new one to align with the hole in the freezer to reattach. The white wire went under the clip was a black wire but it was easily recognized. Other than that it was very straight forward and I had new ice in a few hours. I would definitely do it again.

Original ice maker failed to make ice

Replaced the ice maker. I have a 3 door refrig. It has a bottom drawer freezer. Remove the freezer door to make this much simpler. On my unit, the ice maker is installed with three screws, rather than one and two clips. Check before you try to pull it out. You should unplug the old ice maker from the refrig, leaving the wires on the old ice maker. It's much easier to remove the old wiring harness from the old ice maker once you've removed the front plastic cover on the unit. Both plugs on the harness have clips on them to prevent accidental disconnections. Be sure to find and press the clip releases before you pull on the wires. Nut driver makes this job easier than screw driver. You only need one size for all screws. I used the old ice maker bottom mounting clip rather than trying to bend the new one to shape. Much easier. My old ice maker had an extra wiring clip, which I moved to the new unit before the install. There is one wiring clip to hold the temperature probe, and another just to keep the wires neat. Letting the old ice maker front plastic cover warm up a bit before you try to pry it off for reuse is a good idea. Less chance of cracking. Two hours after the install, I had new ice in the ice bin.

Ice maker quit working and had water leak

Your video was very helpful and accurate. However, my freezer is a bottom drawer type, so I needed to remove the freezer door first. There were 4 nutscrews which needed to be loosened, and door lifted off. Now with the door off, and both baskets removed, access to the ice maker was easy like your video. Also, the freezer compartment was much more accessible for cleaning as well. In 2 days after replacing the ice maker, we have had 2 full batches of ice, with full sized cubes! Your ecommerce shopping, delivery, and instructional videos made for a great on line buying and installation experience. Note: The Dacor ice maker was replaced with a Whirlpool ice maker part. Your replacement part was identical in all respects to the original equipment even though Dacor was not included in your list of compatible brands.

ice maker not working

watched the video you have on installation and followed it with ease. The only part you need a tool is to loosen the first nut and then everything else pretty much pops out and you reinstall with the new part. The icemaker worked within an hour and makes perfect cubes. The videos are super helpful.

Ice maker leaking water dripping into the bin and freezing the dispensing unit

I checked the part number and an exact replacement was ordered. The old unit was removed and what I failed to note was that the water supply hose for the new unit entered from the side. Further examination showed a small "break-out" piece at the rear of the unit. but I still had to do something about the hole in the side. I used a piece of metal tape to close off that hole, trimmed it to size, and installed the unit. It was really an easy install after I figured out what to do about the hole. Evidently, this unit is mounted on the side of the freezer compartment in some models. Reading the reports of others was a big help.

Old ice maker worked irratically and finally quit for good.

I followed the video and advice from the many others on this site and only have a few additional comments. First, the decorative cover on the front of the old unit is held on with two plastic teeth on the top and bottom of the cover. This was not at all apparent and it took me awhile to figure it out. I used a sharp knife to pry up the top edge until the teeth lost their grip on the metal notches in the old unit. Second, don't try to pull the cables out of the front of the old unit before removing that cover. It is held in with a plastic snap that must be depressed after the cover is removed. The video does a good job explaining how to remove the old metal arm and attach it to the new unit so that it will recognize the ice level in the bucket. Finally, don't bother looking around the web site for a button that enables you to add to these comments. You'll be contacted by email in a week or two for that.

This process actually took 3 tries to resolve. Read the entire article it may save you money.
Before each trial I shut off the water and unplugged the refrigerator.
Trial 1
I went to the website and chose the part that had the highest percentage of resolution (78%), which was the actual icemaker. I followed the direction that another person described in detail how to replace. It was easy but it wasn’t the solution. It took me 15 minutes to switch out using a screwdriver and a nut-driver. Turned on the water and plugged the refrigerator in. However, after doing so I still had no ice.
Trial 2
Next, I tried replacing the small water pump that pumps water up to the ice maker. The part is called
the “Double Outlet Water Valve”. Here again on the premise that it was the next highest percentage part to fix my problem. I replaced this part in about 15 minutes with an adjustable wrench and a knife. This time a turned on the refrigerator and water squirted out of the plastic hose that feeds into ice maker’s water feed tube. Still no ice.
Trial 3
The last part to replace was the water feed tube which is a vinyl tube that extends from the outside back of the refrigerator to the ice maker. I read that if water shoots out of the plastic hose that attaches to the “Water Feed Tube” is most likely frozen. So, I replace the “Water Feed Tube”. I disconnected the plastic hose in the back and took some pliers and pulled the “Water Feed Tube” out from the back. It was frozen solid. I cut the new “Water Feed Tube” to the same length and inserted it into the back of the refrigerator. I will most like not go in all the way until you guide it in to the icemaker from inside the freezer. I used some good clear silicone caulk around the outside of the “Water Feed Tube” and attached the plastic hose to it with a small clamp. I was done in about 15 minutes. I plugged in the refrigerator and I let the caulk fully dry for 24 hours. Then I turned on the water. Within the hour I had ice. Finally!
What I determined was the “Water Feed Tube” froze up and caused the “Double Outlet Water Valve” to fail. So, it was necessary to replace both but not the ice maker. What happens in the process of making ice is as the ice maker cycles it calls for water from the “Double Outlet Water Valve”. You should first check to see if the “Water Feed Tube” is frozen. Remove it, use a hair dryer to thaw it out. Reinsert it and re-clamp it to the plastic hose. If that doesn’t resolve your problem or you find that it wasn’t filled with ice, make sure the “Double Outlet Water Valve” is pumping water to the ice maker. If it is, then, replace the ice maker. If it isn’t, replace the “Double Outlet Water Valve”. In other words, don’t go on the percentages. Go on the cheapest.

Bottom freezer was making constant grinding noises, then stopped making ice altogether. I researched the Amanda site, read the customer feedback info and instructions to replace the ice maker. We've been fortunate to have had no ice maker issues for this Amana unit for ten years! The fridge and fre

1.Pull refrigerator out from wall and unplug. 2.Turn the water source off! 3.Remove one screw from bottom and loosen two screws at the top of the ice maker. 4.Pull ice maker down and unplug the power connector. It has 2 locking tabs so press to release the lock. The water tube will pull out on it's own.5.

I took the old part out and put the new one in and it works like it should. I loosened two screws and took one screw out with nutdriver. then I used the old wiring harness, bail and cover to finish.

The ice maker had been dripping and than stopped making ice. I worked with it and got it to work again for a few days and than the same problem occured.

I watched the video on line first. I shut off the power to the refreigerator. I took the one screw out on the bottom of the ice-maker and pushed up on the ice maker. Than I disconnected the power harness inside the refrigerator. I took it out and changed out the harness from the old one to the new one and also the bar that dumps the ice. I reconnectected the harness to the back of the refrigerator, made sure that the water spout lined up correctly. Pushed the ice maker down on the screws and reconnected the screw that I had removed. Waited about 1 hour and had ice cubes. This was an easy process after watching the video.
