removed old icemaker and transfer some of the parts to the new icemaker. The only problem was that I had to disasemable the new icemaker to replace the fill tray with the older style (which was included). Once that was done, installation was pretty easy.

Ice maker had no water and quit making ice

I removed the old ice maker as described by the DIY video and had no problem except, I had to remove the ice tray from the motor section so the end cap could be changed. This only required removal of two Phillips screws on the case of the motor assembly, that are used to to secure the tray. Once the tray was off, the ice ejector could be removed and the end cap was free to change. Everything was re-installed in reverse order and unit was mounted. An FYI to anyone with slow ice making, will need to check their freezer temperature. Make sure it's set to get as cold as 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit. After installing new maker, it was not making ice fast enough, only to find my freezer temperature needed to be changed as well. Everything is working as it should now.

The ice maker was easily replaced, however I still had no ice. I ended up using an on-line repair service which determined that the problem was the water inlet valve. Replacing it was beyond my expertise so I hired an appliance repairman.

After reading the articles previous owners wrote, I tackled the repair. There were no big problems until I had to change out the water line on the icemaker tray--that part was for a different frig--so it had to be changed out with the Amana water line part that was enclosed. I couldn't get that part removed, so I had to have my husband change it out. He then finished the installation. Everything went smoothly, just my pride wanted me to finish it all by myself.

Fridge water dispenser started firing randomnly

First locked the control panel to prevent more water from coming out. Then figured out how to remove the panel (using torque bit), along with the control board and switch. Removed the switch from the assembly, and used a multimeter to diagnose that the switch was intermittently closing. Searched using Google to find the switch part number, and was able to get the best price and match at PartSelect without having to order in bulk. I'm always wary about ordering off eBay, and prefer dealing directly with a supply company. Once the new switch came, it was a snap to install it and reassemble the water dispenser board and front panel. Once assembled, the dispenser worked like new! Overall, it took about an hour or less of diagnosing and work, plus wait time for ordering, and about $25 for the part. Beat calling a repairman and paying $100 for the same work.

I broke the switch pulling the freezer basket out.

I watched the on line you tube video on how to DIY. The putty knife worked to pop out the switch. I used the standar screwdriver to unplug the switch from the wire harness. Then plug in the new switch and pop it back in to the roof of the freezer. Tip: watch out when ordering the new switch - the freezer switch is different than the refrigerator switch. The freezer has three prongs. The fridge has two. I initially ordered the wrong part and added a week to the repair time and had to pay shipping to return the first switch.

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.

I replaced the door kit, solenoid and return spring. The old door was worn out and was no longer attached to the return spring. The repair was very simple and the instruction kit sent with the replacement parts was extremely informative and helpful. This repair took less then five minutes.
