Ice maker not producing ice & ice door not closing

  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Socket set

After receiving the parts to repair the ice door, I replaced the solenoid and new chute door without problem. Then a problem I had been experiencing for well over a year, re-emerged. No Ice! I realized the icemaker was old, over 12 years and that the Teflon within the wells as well as the contacts for the timer were well worn. The ease of finding parts and the instructions provided by PartSelect, (written, video and users), I would attempt the replacement of the Ice Maker. When I examined the Freezer, I also identified that the Ice Maker shelf and enclosure (where the auger that drives the ice) was broken and barely hanging in place. I quickly identified the additional parts and ordered them. The total repair took about 60 minutes. and was treated to the sound of ice dropping into the bin by early evening. I am very pleased with the service, the quality of the products and the helpful hints from fellow users. I have added PartSelect to my IE favorites and it will be my first stop when I need repairs for any of my appliances.

First of all, I am a woman and I don't have a lot of tools but I do like to try to fix things on my own before shelling out $ for a professional repair. I found and followed their YouTube video to fix the fridge. To begin with (before I even ordered the part) I needed to find out if it could be something other than the actuator pad that needed to be replaced so I took everything apart (pretty easy) and checked to make sure that the 'Limit switch' was clicking and able to be depressed by the tip of the actuator pad (the actuator pads connects with the Limit Switch which activates the ice flow). It did click. So I figured the Limit Switch was not the problem so I put everything back together and ordered the actuator pad. When it arrived I was already a pro at knowing what needed to be done. I had it replaced in about 15 minutes and its working great!! Thank you so much for your videos on You Tube. I wouldn't have known what to do. You saved me a bundle of money!! Blessings to you all.

Unplugged refrigerator 1st to avoid shocks. Took off the front/outside panel of freezer door at ice/water dispenser (6 screws) and disconnected the single electronics plug-in .Pulled off old rubber covered actuator and replaced with new one. Easy. Would recommend cleaning contacts prior to replacing cover. Works like a charm now! Thx. DB

I took my computer down to the kitchen and went play by play with the video of the man doing the repair on the same exact refrigerator that I have. That was the part that was easy because it was explained very well and you could see what he was doing. My only problem was finding the right tools to use.

Removed by taking self tapping screw from the side. The only thang that had a little difficulty was aligning the plug but with a mirror I was able to plug it in. Then if you doin't get the selecter for cube or cruch ice you will get only crushed. Takes about a total of 2hours.

The motor that drives the ice auger, broke out of the plastic..

First of all remove the ice tray. Next you can pull the shelf forward enough to get to the electrical connector in the back of the shelf where it is plugged into the refrigerator. Disconnect the plug and then pull the complete shelf out of the refrigerator. The issue is removing the U shaped driver on the motor. You have to turn it clockwise (looking at it from the front) to remove it from the drive shaft in order to install the motor on the new shaft. The problem is the motor wants to turn as well. I used skinny plyers to hold the shaft at the back. I then tapped the U shaped driver a couple times with a small hammer and it came loose. Reinstallation was quite simple.

My Refrigerator is over 10 years old. All the previous instructions helped a great deal, but I have one comment to add to all the other instructions: it took several blows (not taps) with the hammer and channel locks to hold the shaft to free the Yoke from the motor.
