Ice cresents froze together in one big lump

  • Difficulty: Easy

Simple replacement of the icemaker solved the problem. I suspect the icemaker was overfilling resulting in water flowing into the ice reservoir.

Ice Maker not making ice

This was about 10 time easier than I had expected (I'm in my 30s, a mom). I put this off for almost a year groaning that I would have to spend tons of money on a repair man. It was really no big deal and took under 30 minutes. I used the video from PartsSelect, and it was right on. I was initially worried because the description from the website said that the new ice maker didn't come with the 'harness" and I had no idea what that was. Its just the little set of wires that easy unclips from the old unit and pops right into the new unit. Mine was reusable, so pretty easy. The only minor issue I had was that the new bracket didn't line up comepletely with the hole in the fridge where the screw went in, but I solved that with adding a skinny washer. Would definetly recommend any common-sensed person to do this repair yourself.

I couldn't believe how easy it was since I am not the handiest guy. All it look was to switch over the wires and screw it to the inside of the freezer. I was back in business.

Failed overload/relay start capacitor

Apparently, the manufacturer sometimes substitutes a part but keeps the same number, which is what happened here. The part wouldn't fit in the actual space on this model--even though the number was apparently correct! Refunding my money and assisting me to contact the manufacturer directly couldn't have been easier! Impressive customer service in a difficult situation.

Icemaker had been sluggish for a while. We had to keep the wire (bale) in the off position for half hour or so, then put it back in the down position. After a few months of doing this, it stopped making ice altogether.

Shut off water and unplug fridge. Remove ice drawer. Unscrew one short nut underneath icemaker, and the two longer ones holding it to the wall of the freezer. Now remove white cover. It just needed a little jiggling w a flat head screwdriver to loosen it. Now you can see where the wire harness is connected, use the same flathead to depress the plastic pin holding it in place, and slide it out. Remove the wire harness from the metal clip on side of icemaker. Now you should be holding the old icemaker in your hands. Remove the bale carefully. Now install the bale into the new icemaker, while making sure it's in the 'down' or 'on' position. Bring the new icemaker into position, gently snap the wire harness into place, sliding the wire into the clip like it originally was. Fasten the three screws again. Then, finally, snap the white cover back into place. Slide the ice drawer back into position, turn on the water, plug the fridge back in and wait 30-45 minutes for your first batch of new ice cubes.

Lifted glass and replaced shelf bar - SIMPLE SIMPLE SIMPLE

The ice in the ice maker would freeze into a solid block. Upon inspection I realized the ice maker was leaking water into the ice holder which was then freezing solid. Three tray for the ice maker was slightly rusted and caused the water to drip.

I watched the video on how to change the ice maker, very easily explained, and removed the old in about 10 minutes.After seeing how the old one came out it only took five minutes to install the new one. The appliance repaircompany wanted$120 just to diagnose the problem,i bought the part from partselect for$104 total. This is the forth time I've used this site and saved a ton of money.

Rmoval and replacement is not at all complicated. (1)Reach behind and to the left of the icemaker and release the power plug. There is a release snap on th side of the plug. (2)Using a 1/4" nut driver remove the screw holding the icemaker to the "L" bracket at the bottom of the icemaker. (3)Using the nut driver loosen two self taping screws holding the top of the icemaker to the side of the freezer compartment.(4)Lift up on the icemaker to remove it. (5)remove the white plastic cover from the front of the icemaker (pry out at the bottom) and snap it onto the new icemaker. (6)Remove the wire sensor arm from the old icemaker and place it on the new one. (7) Remove the cable assembly (plug) from the old icemaker and fasten it to the new one. (8)Secure the new icemaker in place using the reverse order as the removal. The icemaker will take a little longer to make its first batch of ice as it will have to attain its proper operating temp (0 degrees to 2 degrees F).
