My original ice maker was leaking

  • Difficulty: Easy

I went online to PartSelect to see how much I'd expect to pay for the ice maker assembly if I called an appliance repairman to fix it. Instead I found an awesome, very well described video on how to do it myself. I ordered the part and paid ground shipping, but received it the next day!! Installation was a breeze (except I got help removing the electrical jacket because it was an awkward angle and I was afraid that I would damage it). The experience did as much for my single, 55 yr. old self esteem as it did for my wallet. Thank you PartSelect! I'll be back!

Removed back cover to see motor and the fan. Un plug the fan motor from the fan. Used 1/4in socket to remove 3 screws, then unscrewed plastic mounting plate off of motor, put plate back on new motor, used pliers to remove nut from fan blade,and rubber washer replaced to new motor. Then put new motor back in. Make sure motor is centered back in hole and fan does not hit. The brackets (3) that hold motor in place will swing so it can be centered in hole. Spin blade to make sure blade not hitting and is centered. Now plug fan motor back in. Just that simple.

Water Leaking from Ice Maker freezing in the bucket as a solid mass

  • Customer: Marcella from Las Vegas NV
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The Amana's Ice Maker mounted against the back wall. I'm a 61 year old female that ordered this to help my aging parents. The wire harness only unplugged from the Ice Maker and was hard wired to the Frig. I had to "blindly" try to depress and release the harness clip and that took most of the time. When putting in the new ice maker, I noticed that the opening for the fill tube was now against the wall and not to the back. So, I had to disconnect it again. I found that it is also made for a side right fill by cutting out a perforated tab. Just to make sure there wasn't an overflow out of the other round hole, I used silver tape to plug the hole. It took two hours after plugging back in the frig and turning on the water supply before it made ice.

Open freezer doors and turned freezer to off position. Removed back panels to freezer! Let stand until ice was melted. Turn off breaker to refrigator since the refrigator was too large to pull out of custom cabinet for me. I'm a 54 year old female. Removed clips and Defrost Heater and Thermostat Assembly and replaced with new one. Replaced the panels. Turn breaker back on and turn the freezer to on position. Dumped the first tray of ice. It's been about a week with no problems. With a little research the average person can diagnose their problem and if you are handy with a screw driver and don't mind get down on the floor you can save yourself some, time and money and feel good about your achivement upon successful completion. Well at less it has always worked for me! I can fix most things that the average guy won't even think about! Well I've always said that I have more time than money! Choose you battles!

Icemaker stopped making ice

Ordered replacement icemaker from PartSelect.com. Upon receipt of part installed part as per the online video. All went well. Whirlpool rep. stated that the icemake works well when the freezer temp. is set at 10 degrees or less.It took appreximately 24 hrs.for the icemaker to fill the bucket with fresh ice. It would hace cost approximately $230.00 or more if I had called a Service rep. to do the job. So I elected to do it myself.

ice maker

well, my problem was the dual water valve. I check the two water valve connectors, one was good ( yellow ) and the other connector (brown) was bad. I tested them both with an ohms meter, of course all power was off. I think when ever there's a problem with not receiving ICE this should be done before replacing the ice-maker for there's a lot of things going on in this area. The Brown Connector releases the water into the ice-tray (that tested Bad with a reading of 257 from ohms meter,and the yellow had a sound from ohms for full contact a good reading. The brown valve was bad.

Problem caused by ice cubes falling out of ice bin and collecting at rear and interfering with ice dispenser drive. Broke plactic drive ring. Pull down 2 clips at front bottom of ice bin. Pull ice bin out. Dump ice cubes. Remove 8 star drive screws to allow case to move far enough to clear broken drive ring. Replace drive ring. Reinstall and tighten 8 screws. Install ice bin. Correct loose right side ice cube retainer board to prevent cubes from falling out of ice bin.

Broken crisper support

  • Customer: Anthony from Broadlands VA

The main issue is that my supports are NOT held on by screws -- they are behind the fridge wall and can not be removed. So this is my solution (ignore the 'fix kit' -- it is useless and is just this part plus a metal screw. It cost me $20 to find this out). Here is what I did: 1) Cut off the old support with a knife. 2) Get a small toggle bolt (I used 1/8" x 2", < $2 from Home Depot) and thread into new support. 3) Dig around in insulation to make sure there is space for toggle to flip open. 4) Install!!!! Wish I'd thought of this before :-)
