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 had to disasemble the crispers and remove the runners and side panel. I needed a screwdriver and wrench set (metric). Once I found the correct socket, everythig went very smooth. My husband was amazed that I could make the repair by myself. I probably saved $200!! The part fit perfect and it was alos very good quality. Thanks

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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.
