Followed instructions in owner's manual, which are also on the bottle of cleaner we ordered. Very easy to use. Only had to take ice out of bin, and cut ice maker off, then add the cleaner to the water pan, and press button to clean. It was very easy, and effective. The buildup of stain, etc. was removed completely. We just had to turn the icemaker back on, and allow time for ice to begin filling the bin.
Thanks very much.

Ice Maker quit making cubes, cutter wire broken

First I removed the cutter grid assembly by removing two screws. Also disconnect the wire that powers the grid. Once on the bench, simply remove the broken cutter wire. String in the new wire, starting at one end and working back and forth to the other end. Tighten the terminal screw on the first end, and then "strum" the wires, one at a times, pulling the wires taught. Pull the excess wire thru the second terminal, until all wires are taught, with equal tension. Tighten the second terminal screw, and cut off excess wire at both ends. Re-assemble cutter grid into Ice Maker.
Problem solved!

First I removed the front door by removing the screw on the top hinge. Then removed the upper hinge plate. This allowed removal of the top corner retaining screw. Removed screws at three other top corners. Now I could raise the top at a 45 degree angle to remove the controller cover. The controller was connected with several wire clips and held in place with two screws. Quick swap out and reverse order completion. Ice maker works like new!

There was a loud noise coming from the fridge - we ordered the new part it came a lot sooner than we excepted and we replaced it in about 20 minutes- the hardest part was my husband getting his hand in there to put the screws in- but a very easy fix.

Removed the grid.
removed the existing top to bottom wire.
restrung the grid with the new wire.
Then, it cut ice just fine-better than new.
Note:
wire provided is only sufficient to rewire side to side or top to bottom, not both. If you need to do both, you'll need 2. Yes, lots of money for a few feet of wire.

I have a grandson that works for Pantex. He replaced the fan and motor in less than ten minutes using only the nutdriver tool. My cost compared to local supplier and labor was about 75% less.
