I unplugged the fridge. Then I removed the ice bucket. Then I removed the ice maker using a 3/4 socket to separate the connections and then used a small screwdriver to separate whatever connections were left. Then I installed the new ice maker and checked its level. Everything now works fine.

I order a bare crisper frame, no glass, no slider controls. The old frame lifted out easily. I did not realize the glass top is not glued in, because food drippings had it somewhat stuck in place. But only somewhat - I almost dropped the glass when I turned the frame over. Once the glass was out, I removed the humidity sliders by gently lifting one end so I could slide them to a place where they lifted off. (Look for the notch-outs.) Then I put the parts in the new frame and put it back in the frig.

After unplugging the refrigerator, I removed the lower rear access panel that exposed the condenser and the overload/relay start capacitor with 1/4" nut driver (6 total). Next, I unplugged the wire harness and spring loaded keeper with needle nose pliers. Then I pulled the overload/relay start capacitor out of the 3 pronged male receptor located on the side of the condenser and plugged in the new one. Replaced the keeper, plugged the harness back in, and replaced the panel. Very easy fix.

Replace Ice Maker

The fix was relatively easy but I could not get 2 of the screws removed. They were in very tight and I didn't have the right tools. Also, in the Amana refridgerator, they are in a "difficult to get at" location. I called my plumber friend and he helped me. Once the screws were out, the rest of the job went very smoothly as others have described. We took out the bad icemaker and reconnected the new one to the existing harness. I had ice in an about an hour. Thanks so much, PartSelect. The delivery was quick and the install was as many described on your website. You provide a wonderful service for the "do it yourselfer".

ice maker not making ice

  • Customer: tony from oak grove MN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Went very well. I replaced the ice maker itself cause of the high failure rate but that did not fix it. Measured voltage across water solenoid and it was around 1 volt. Measured the voltage at the water solenoid for ice and it was 20 volts. This was measured when it was plugged in. So I replaced the valve took 15-20 minutes including moving the fridge out. Started making ice 8 minutes later.

The ice tub corroded so the ice would stick.

Couldn't believe how complicated this part is with heaters. It is used in at least a billion refrigerators and functions well. But I had to tear it all apart to adopt it. Got it all done and stayed awake all night for waiting for Ice. Nothing! Then a Erika moment! Turn the ice arm full switch off! Then Ice poured out every hour. Expecting many years of ice. Thanks for speedy delivery especially before Christmas..

As described in many of the previous peoples instructions. Upon removal of the end cap I did have to take the air controller apart and clean it. Apparently there was spillage we didn't know about until i took all the pieces apart. After cleaning, the items worked fine. I reinstalled and am back in business. All I had to do was remove the end cap screws and also the drawer slide screws. I replaced the door slide on the new end cap, replaced the cooler arms and then re-screwed the new end cap in place. Simple..Because of cleaning, time ran to about 30 minutes.

Ice maker was dripping water in two different area's

The repair was a lot easier than I thought. I first ordered the ice-maker part from PartSelect. Followed the instructions from the how-to video and I was done within 30 minutes. Unplugged the fridge, took out the two 1/4" nut screws holding up the ice-maker, disconnected the wiring harness and then re-attached the new ice-maker in reverse order. Had to use some of the parts from the old ice-maker, like the cover, ice wire (the wire that moves up and down, letting you know when the ice box was full or starts the ice-making process) The whole process along the PartSelect video made it easy.
