icemaker quit making ice

I first replaced the dual water valve solenoid. The ice maker still refused to work. I then ordered and installed the ice maker part number S106626640 626639 OEM listed for a Maytag D7824706Q ice maker. This was an exact replacement. I swapped out the wires and wire toggle as directed. After plugging it in and approximately 6 hours, it made ice. Be sure to trim the plastic hose ends going to the water valve solenoid to ensure a good seal. I also insisted on using OEM parts, not the less expensive generic replacements. The OEM parts are twice the money but worth it considering my free labor. The installation was not difficult.

This was sooo easy! Removed the vegetable bins and shelf. Then removed the the deli drawer and lid. Used a 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the three nuts. On kitchen counter, I removed the two cross-cut screws from slide rail and put it on the new piece. Replaced the three nuts on the new end cap and then the hard work began---clean the shelves and bins that had been removed and replace the food. My refrigerator looks like new!

I removed contents of freezer as this was a bottom unit. I had to remove freezer drawers/door to easily access ice maker which was located in the back of unit,wasnt a problem.I did however take a hair dryer to water tube as it froze up with about an 6 inch tube of ice that finally slid down. Connected unit and had ice within an hour or so and a full tray within 24 hrs. Second ice maker in little over a year...Video very helpful, saved 100 bucks by doing myself. Part arrived fast, great job!

We ordered a PartSelect PS2121513 ice maker. I was concerned that there was no instructions shipped with the unit. Fortunately, PartSelect had an online video that guided me through the process. It wasn't that complex really. The only time I felt totally dumb was when using my nut driver to remove the bottom bracket. I couldn't figure out why there was no 1/4" socket with my set, so I used a small socket wrench instead. I finally figured out that the driver was already a 1/4", without a socket in it. After that it was easy. Slid the ice maker up a little to free it from the top mounting screws. Pulled it outward a bit to gain access to the connector at the back of the freezer, then squeezed the two sides of the connector and out it came. I popped the plastic cover off the existing device and then removed the connector as instructed in the video. I also removed the bale (as per the video). I put the connector harness, plastic cover and bale on the new ice maker and put it back in, this time using the nut driver on the bottom bracket :-). My only concern after that was that it didn't seem to be working. I had no idea that it needed some time to get cold before it would work. After about an hour, it filled with water and began making ice. Success.

Pretty easy to do except need to pay close attention to how the old part came off because the back was a little tricky. The part that hooks to the chefs pantry door and controls the temperature adjustment slide pay particular attention to. The whole job from start to finish about 30 minutes, definately would not hire someone to do, would do myself again.

Remove two philips screws from drawer slider and detach from end cap. Reverse process for re-installation.
