Replaced the ice maker. I have a 3 door refrig. It has a bottom drawer freezer. Remove the freezer door to make this much simpler. On my unit, the ice maker is installed with three screws, rather than one and two clips. Check before you try to pull it out. You should unplug the old ice maker from the refrig, leaving the wires on the old ice maker. It's much easier to remove the old wiring harness from the old ice maker once you've removed the front plastic cover on the unit. Both plugs on the harness have clips on them to prevent accidental disconnections. Be sure to find and press the clip releases before you pull on the wires. Nut driver makes this job easier than screw driver. You only need one size for all screws. I used the old ice maker bottom mounting clip rather than trying to bend the new one to shape. Much easier. My old ice maker had an extra wiring clip, which I moved to the new unit before the install. There is one wiring clip to hold the temperature probe, and another just to keep the wires neat. Letting the old ice maker front plastic cover warm up a bit before you try to pry it off for reuse is a good idea. Less chance of cracking. Two hours after the install, I had new ice in the ice bin.

I followed the instructions shown on the YouTube video on the Parts Select site. I had to make a few modifications. There were two nuts that had to be loosened to lift the ice maker off the freezer wall. The mounting bracket had to be transferred from the old icemaker to the new one to align with the hole in the freezer to reattach. The white wire went under the clip was a black wire but it was easily recognized. Other than that it was very straight forward and I had new ice in a few hours. I would definitely do it again.

It is a simple and quick repair especially if one is even a little capable. May take some extra care and thinking for one who is not but still should be fairly quick and without troubles. I am not happy with the product as it does not make ice even half as quickly as the original. Many have stated the first or the first few cycles are very long and then it became quicker and more normal. Its been a week and I also tried shut it off several times just to reset it. It makes ice wonderfully but takes forever. I've yet to have a full bin of ice. Even without using ice for a couple days or very little in a few days. I am considering returning it for this reason.

I never would have imagined that my husband and I could replace our ice maker so easily. We simply fired up the step-by-step video on my tablet, paused it as we did each step and voila! Usually there is a lot of cussing with any repair we do and I don't think there was even one cuss word uttered. Thank you for the clear and concise instructions!

If you watch the video on PartsSelect that will give you a general idea of how to do the repair except mine was in a bottom drawer freezer. You have streach a little to get to the screws holding the ice maker to un-screw them just enough to lift the ice maker out.

Ice maker not making ice

First of all, I do not consider myself very handy. Most of my simple home repair projects include at least 2 trips to the local hardware store and take twice as long as they probably should. So if I can do this anyone can. For once, rather than just blindly throw new parts at a problem I did check the water pressure to the icemaker first and then even tested the icemaker with a multi-tester to determine what was wrong. I had $5.00 mulit-tester in my workbench but had never actually used it before, so I found step by step instructions on another website on how to test the motor and it turned out that one of the circuits in the main motor was in fact bad. Since the motor was around $80.00 dollars and the Whole unit that's inside your freezer is about $120.00 I decided it was best to just go ahead and replace the entire unit rather than just the motor. From what I saw online normally replacing an Ice maker is fairly simple. Remove 3 screws swap the prewired plug along with the metal arm then just reinstall it. Somehow whenever I try a home repair it's never that simple. First of all, our freezer is on the bottom so removing the screws holding the ice maker meant that I had to climb over, around and under the freezer shelves in order to get to the ice maker itself. Also one of the screws is not visible from the front so I had to hold a mirror in one hand while I tried loosening the screw with the other. Since the metal arm that turns off the ice maker is not included in the replacement it had to be moved over. Of course it was stuck, so it did take a little time to get it loose because I was being careful not to bend it and have to order another one. Finally installing the new icemaker meant once again that i was climbing over under and around the basket in the bottom level freezer. There is probably an easy way to remove the entire drawer but I couldn't find the release tabs so when just pulling harder on the drawer didn't work, I thought it best to just work around it. Still all in all, not a difficult job, just a little time consuming. The guy in the video did the swap in about 6 minutes, it took me about 45.

The ice maker was leaking into the holding container and had black chips of paint or plastic from the inside of the icemaker

Installation was really easy since the replacement part was identical to the OEM part. Removed the three mounting screws with a nut driver. This allows one to remove the icemaker from the wall and disconnect the wire harness plug from the icemaker. I never unplugged the harness from the rear wall of the refrigerator. Put the new icemaker in place, making sure to place the water fill tube in the proper hole. Plugged the wire harness into the new icemaker and tightened the three mounting screws. The icemaker worked perfectly from then on with clean ice cubes and no leaks.

The repair was a lot easier than I thought. I first ordered the ice-maker part from PartSelect. Followed the instructions from the how-to video and I was done within 30 minutes. Unplugged the fridge, took out the two 1/4" nut screws holding up the ice-maker, disconnected the wiring harness and then re-attached the new ice-maker in reverse order. Had to use some of the parts from the old ice-maker, like the cover, ice wire (the wire that moves up and down, letting you know when the ice box was full or starts the ice-making process) The whole process along the PartSelect video made it easy.

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".

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.
