It went as your installation video showed but a lot more water came from the lines after I turned it off. Luckily and had a bucket and extra towels on hand prior to my installation.

I didn't have anything difficult to fix it was basically just removing the crisper frame and pan and installing the new one. I will however say that I was very impressed with how quickly my replacement parts were delivered.

First I bought the 3 parts for the ice maker door & put that all together & tested it & IT DIDN'T WORK!! Then I reread what other people did & I ordered the solenoid, the hinge, & the spring. I remembered from my first go 'round to put a solid color towel on the floor to catch that pesky screw from the top right every time it fell. I know NOTHING about mechanics but this was nothing but common sense; almost like following the dots, except that I didn't know how to put the spring on, I had to figure out that the HINGE goes THRU the spring. Other than that, I think I just saved myself a $200 service call.

Ice Chute Door broke off causing frost to build up around the chute

Repair was super easy. Assembled each piece as shown on sheet. Removed the drip tray and 2 hex nuts. Either get someone to hold the panel or, what I did was rest it on a step ladder. Inside you have to remove 3 more hex nuts--pull out the plastic housing and and snap the chute door in place lining up the three notches. Put everything back together and no more frost (or flies or gnats either, for that matter!).

It is a simple and quick repair especially if one is even a little capable. May take some extra care and thinking for one who is not but still should be fairly quick and without troubles. I am not happy with the product as it does not make ice even half as quickly as the original. Many have stated the first or the first few cycles are very long and then it became quicker and more normal. Its been a week and I also tried shut it off several times just to reset it. It makes ice wonderfully but takes forever. I've yet to have a full bin of ice. Even without using ice for a couple days or very little in a few days. I am considering returning it for this reason.

If you watch the video on PartsSelect that will give you a general idea of how to do the repair except mine was in a bottom drawer freezer. You have streach a little to get to the screws holding the ice maker to un-screw them just enough to lift the ice maker out.

Ice maker was leaking water into ice container, causing ice jam of scroll

Changing the ice maker was easy as per video instructions. I did not shut down power during replacement. The new unit started making ice within an hour or so, however, the next morning, liquids on the refrigerator top shelf were freezing up! I lowered the frig temp set point one number, but the top shelf continued to freeze. My son had had a similar experience, and he suggested turning power off to the unit for several minutes. I turned off the breaker for about 15 minutes, then back on. The top shelf freezing problem cleared up, and everything started working like it should!

I never would have imagined that my husband and I could replace our ice maker so easily. We simply fired up the step-by-step video on my tablet, paused it as we did each step and voila! Usually there is a lot of cussing with any repair we do and I don't think there was even one cuss word uttered. Thank you for the clear and concise instructions!

The ice maker stopped working and left "kling-ons" in the tray. At one time the trays kept trying to fill which only sent water pouring into the freezer compartment.

Searching Google and Youtube produced trouble-shooting guidance to first check the water inlet valve which I did. I should have realized the valve was working since the ice-maker was trying to fill the trays. Additional advice recommended skipping all the other component troubleshooting and merely replace the old unit which I did. The big difference with the Amana appliance was the icemaker was installed laterally in the back of the freezer rather than longitudinally with the end of the control wheel positioned towards the front of the freezer. This created a tight fit in removing the old unit, especially since the wiring harness was extremely short. The latter made access to the plug release catch difficult. I used a small flat blade screwdriver and worked mainly by feel to release the plug catch. Persistent wrangling finally got the plug detached and the unit free. The water inlet hose also had a rear access orientation while the replacement unit had access was from the side. The hacksaw blade was used to cut a pre-outlined access to allow the hose to enter from the rear as with the old unit. Once the shut-off bail was transferred, wiring harness reconnected, and water inlet positioned and clipped into place, the mounting screws were secured. Within 24 hrs the first ice cubes popped and the unit has filled the ice reservoir. Keep in mind I just ordered the icemaker and did not need any other add-ons like a different wiring harness which seemed to work fine. Confirm when you order you don't need any additional parts. Good service for PartSelect. I will use them again.
