The replacement ice maker came with a few different wiring harnesses which I assumed one of them would fit. well none of them did. I took the wiring off of the old one and matched up all of the receptacles and hoped for the best. It worked. The hardest part of the repair was dislodging the ice machine from the massive chunk of ice that had developed due to the leak in the old one. after that it was pretty easy. I hemmed and hawed about the wiring harness for a few minutes but felt confident it was going to be okay. I took the heat shield off of the old one and put it on the new one and used the control cover and the control arm from the old one too. I checked that all the holes and mounting assemblies matched up. I plugged in the wiring harness to the ice maker and than to the refridgerator, used a nut driver to secure it to the inside wall of the freezer with 3 screws, replaced the ice bucket and the cold air diverter and closed the door. Within an hour I heard the first ice hit the bottom of the bucket.

Ice maker stopped working altogether, dead.

The unit was old so I opted to buy a new one even though it was just the motor. It took about 10 minutes to remove it after locating the fasteners, possibly less and about the same to install the new one. When the unit is turned on for the first time it does not start up right away. It will not start until it senses that it is cold enough in the freezer. For me that was about an hour to an hour and a half. There was a note on the cover that this could be as long as thirty six (36) hours. So don't be alarmed when it does not start running right away. The instructions were accurate.

Icemaker had started leaking water into ice bin upon filling.

Watched the online video and it looked just too simple.....so when I got the new unit I did not have to even change the wiring harness and I was totally surprised that the change could be so simple and easy! Trick is to follow the video instructions and DO NOT take out the two top screws but just loosen them enough to lift up the old unit and remove it! Cannot believe it could be that simple and easy.

watched video, followed the instructions and everything fell into place. since the wiring harness was not removable, I disconnected the harness from the the old unit and hooked it up to the new unit. put every thing back together,plugged in the power cord and turned on the water. water filled the ice maker and ice appeared in about an hour.

PREVIOUS TO INSTALLING THE NEW ICE MAKER - I REPLACED THE DUAL INLET WATER VALVE PER THE INSTRUCTION VIDEO I FOUND @ PARTSELECT WEBSITE. THAT DID NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM <> I ALSO ADJUSTED THE TIMER ON THE OLD ICE MAKER DOWN - PER ANOTHER VIDEO / WHICH ALSO DID NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM. THEN I VIEWED THE VIDEO ON ICEMAKER REPLACEMENT - ORDERED THE ICE MAKER & 3 DAYS AND 15 MINUTES LATER <> THE PROBLEM WAS FIXED ! THIS WEB SITE IS "FANTASTIC" ! THANKYOU PARTSELECT FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE ! ! !

Really couldn't be easier. Loosen 3 screws that are easy to find. Disconnect the quick connect wiring harness. Now you have the old unit out. Take out the wire that tells if there is too much ice from the old unit and put it on the new one ( this was the hardest part of the project) Hook up the new wiring connector and hook it on the screws and tighten it up. Viola, your done. No messing with the water. Took me 5 minutes and I've never done it before.

Followed the example on the video and everything fit in place without any problems. Only issue is that on a double door fridge the freezer is rather narrow so there isn't much room to work making it was a bit difficult to access the mounting screws.

I replaced the ice maker with a new one. All part were included. The cost was about $200.00 cheaper than what the repair person wanted.

Ice maker would fill with water and make ice but would not dispense ice.

Ice maker is held on by two clips and one screw. Removed old ice maker and unplugged wiring harness. It appeared normal. Since it was 15 years old and a brand new one was only a little more than $100 I decided to just replace it. Shopped online and got best price here. Delivered promptly. Item description said it did not come with wiring harness, but mine came with three different ones. However my wiring harness had a different molded plastic connector where it is plugged into the back of the freezer so I could not just pop it off and pop in the new one. Instead I had to reuse my old one. No problem, since the harness was not damaged anyway. Also I had to reposition the harness clip on the new ice maker and remove the plastic tab on the bottom and re use the tab from my existing ice maker. The tab on the new ice maker would not line up with the hole in the freezer. All in all it took about 10 minutes total to switch the two units out. Extremely simple job, do not pay someone to do this for you.
