I removed the ice maker unit completely from the freezer, following a Utube repair video that I found. I originally thought it was just the control board that was defective, because on examination, found a burned-out copper trace on the board, as well as a burned-out plastic connection point. Installing the new parts was a breeze. This icemaker is pretty foolproof, with plastic tabs that line up with the housing. a matter of lining up the screw holes was all that was necessary. Only problem I had was attaching a plastic cover that shields the electrical connection from the water. Once all was installed, I had to wait overnight for the icemaker to make ice. We've had ice ever since! Thank you Partsselect for very courteous and fast service!

Checked the hose above the icemaker to see if water was frozen. Ran the freezer at a lower temp to see if lines would unfreeze. Took a wild guess that a component was broken in the icemaker, but it was cheaper to get the entire assembly anyways. Removed about 4 screws under icemaker, disconnected icemaker, jiggled and slid the icemaker and tray out, traded out icemaker assemblies, and put it all back, probably took 10-15 mins, and it made ice again!

I ordered both icemaker motor assembly and the emitter and receiver (sensors)as I was uncertain as to which was the culprit. We couldn't unplug the frige as it is heavy, so we shut the circuit breaker until we were done with the repair. The icemaker motor was a bit clumsy to remove. My refrigerator was entirely different than the one on the video I viewed, as I have a side by side and the video was of an entirely different model. The video's icemaker was not as clumsy to work with. My husband was a little apprehensive so I rode shot gun and assisted and he did great. He did change the motor first and probably should have waited to see if it worked. He didn't wait, and went ahead and changed the sensors....that was a breeze. We waited about 2 hours and lo and behold once the freezer went down to 14 degrees, the icemaker began it's magic and we had a full supply of ice within 24 hours. So, I saved quite a bit of cash by purchasing the parts I needed at Parts Select and eliminated the repairman's expensive fee. Very happy with end results.

There are two tabs that hold the icemaker to the rails it sits on. I use a small screwdriver and pushed the tabs up to release the tray and slid the Ice maker out. the cover over the control motor just pops right off. Then I removed three screws from the control motor pulled it off and put the new on, replaced the screws and put the cover back on and slid the icemaker back into the rails. I shut the freezer door and within the five minutes it took me to put my tools back in the garage, it was dumping ice. Very easy to fix. You do not need to remove the screws that hold the icemaker to the tray.

Turned off the icemaker and took out the hex screw at the back of the unit that held the cable guard. The ice maker was easy to slide out after releasing guide locks on each side of the unit. Pulled the unit forward and released the electrical connection. With the unit on the cabinet, I removed the motor housing cover. Took out the 3 scews holding it in place and the old motor was out. Just reverse the steps putting the new one in. In an hour or two we heard ice dumping into the holder.

The helpful Partselect video showed a slightly different model, as my icemaker uses optics instead of a bail for shutting off the icemaker. I ordered new optics based on a a customer description that, if the light on the right hand side of the freezer door jamb was blinking 2 flashes followed by a pause,it indicated that the optics were faulty, so I ordered and replaced them. This did not solve my problem. Then on-line I found further information that said I should close the flapper on the left side, and if the light was steady (which it was) the optics were OK. I then ordered the motor unit. I unscrewed the single screw under the right hand side of the track with a 1/4" nut driver, but found that sliding out the ice maker involved a little wiggling and prying, and, because it was awkward to disconnect the electrical connection, I found that it was not necessary to disconnect it. Then, after removing the end cap, it was a straight forward process to replace the motor, while adjusting the shaft to line up. Then,reverse all procedures and I now have ice. Success!

We followed the video which was a great help. The only difficulty we had is the black rubber tube (water fill tube) was hard to get into the new ice maker. But finally got it. The new icemaker works wonderful! No more buying ice!

I researched my problem online and watched a video of a ice maker installation before I attempted my repair. I ordered the part at 11am Thursday morning and the part arrived at 10am Friday morning via Fed Express. First, I removed the bracket the was holding the ice maker in place. Second, I slide the ice maker out. Then I disconnected the old ice maker. Next I used a screwdriver to remover 3 screws for the plastic housing, since it was need for the new ice maker. I plug it in and put the bracket back in place. I went out for a couple of hours. I returned home and ran to the freezer.I open it and I found ice cubes. I was finally able to throw out my ice cube trays. Boy I hate them!!! Don't fear this repair it's simple and very cheap. I saved roughly $160.00 by doing it myself. I will use this company again since they were great
