I received the new icemaker the next day after I had ordered it. After watching the video on how to install the icemaker I installed it within a few minutes which I really surprised myself since this was my first repair job to do by myself. The new ice maker has been working great and I am very pleased with partselect and will continue to contact you when I am in need of any parts. Thank you, betty

Fast delivery...Great video instructions..The only difficulty is when I tried to take the cable out. It's kind of hard and far away from my reach. So, I took only the cable out on Ice Maker end.

Unplug refrigerator, turned off water to ice maker, unscrewed bracket, lifted ice maker off clips, pulled out water hose,disconected wiring harness and lifted out old icemaker. Reversed the process and it worked like a breeze and no service call. Space is very tight and you have to do a lot of feeling without actually seeing what you're doing and you need a small flashlight. It was so easy with diagram provided on PartSelect's website.

Found PartsSelect on internet. Read data, watched remove/replace video, ordered new Ice Marker. Arrived in 11/2 days-quick. Both removel and install very easy; three easy to remove screws, disconnect wire harness pull it out. However, water cup on end of the new Ice Maker was faceing 90 degrees the wrong way! Had to totally disassemble both new and old Ice Makers to swap water cups. Reassemble, pray it was done correctly and install. New Ice Maker works like a champ and no leaking--Thanks PartsSelect.

After years of using a flash light to check the contents of my refrigerator, I decided to try to fix the problem myself. Replacing the light switch was very easy. The directions were straight forward and I'm sorry I waited so long to tackle the problem.

ice maker inopeative

  • Customer: George from Minden, NV
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Wrench set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
went on line and ordered new ice maker for this model refrigerator. Received the new part. New icemaker provided video for replacement of ice maker.Used the video showing the removal and replacement of the ice maker to begin the removal process. (must remove one mounting screw, then raise the icemaker up then out to unlatch the fixture.) This took over one hour, then had to remove wiring arness. Instrucions indicated to "squeez" the locking clip holding the connector, it is impossible to see the connector so it was a "feel" process. It turned out that squeesing the connector from the sides, did not work, finally squeezing the locking clip (top to bottom) finally released the connector. Then the installation (per video) reversed the removal procedure and that turned out to be about a two hour task because to align the ice maker when you cannot see the alignment / holding brackets was a very difficullt task. Then when it was finally installed, the one mounting screw, would not align with the previous mounting hole, because the tab on the new one was longer, requiring drilling a new hole to hold the icemaker in place. The hole had to be made using the same (self-tapping) screw, since the space available when the icemaker is installed is very limited. After the mounting hole was partally made, driving the screw the rest of the way had to be done with a ratchet, other then that, everything was just great.

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.

Turned off the refrigerator. Removed the freezer storage baskets. Removed two screws on the back panel. Removed the top and bottom panels. Unplugged and unclipped the wires above the coils. Removed the metal tub holding the heater in place on the right side of the coil. Removed the clip from the bottom of the coil holding the heater up and then carefully guided the wire harness from along side of the coils and removed the heater. To install the new heater thermal assembly I just reversed the order that I took the old one out.

When calling to see what the repair would cost my prices ranged from 250.00 to 175.00 with parts and labor. But I decided to tackle this project myself after watching the installation video. My parts arrived quickly and I watched the video had my repair completed within 30min and saved myself over 100.00 dollars. Thank you PartSelect!! The step by step instructions made this project a breeze.

unplug power! Remove the screws from lower panel on back of refrigerator. Lift wire mount out of back panel. Capacitor is mounted directly to the relay and overload switch located on the left side of the compressor. Remove the spring clip holding the capacitor in place and pull the old capacitor out. Plug in new capacitor and replace spring clip. Use vacuum to remove dust from drip pan and wipe fan blades clean. Replace wire into slot on back panel and replace screws. Remove front coil cover below freezer door. vacuum dust off coils and replace cover. Plug refrigerator in and enjoy cold beverages. Relay and overload kit were not required for this repair.
