I had to do this repair three years ago and found that the instructions provided by PartSelect were perfect. The video links provided this time on how to disassemble, do repair, and reassemble were extremely helpful. I followed those instructions and completed the job in less than one-half hour. The water now shuts down as it should. I really cannot add to the helpful write-ups by other customers. Thanks

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.

Plastic incloser that held motor and I've selected, broken loose so the motor was hanging so nothen worked.

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.

ice tray cracked at ice dispenser auger motor causing auger misalignment..

Removed the ice tray with nut driver, tilted forward to disconnect electrical plug for ice dispenser. Once ice tray was out, removed cube/crush selection solenoid (don't lose spring) and removed auger motor. Now came the tricky part, to remove the auger itself from motor, it is a left handed screw to remove. I used a pair of needle nosed vise grip to hold on to auger shaft, then used channel lock pliers to grab auger and removed. Using the vise grips made it for easy work. Once removed I reinstalled auger motor and ice cube/crush solenoid in reverse order. replaced ice tray into freezer. Works like new!! One tip (I found this out the next morning) The motor, because it is frozen will condense moisture on it when outside the freezer. A) use compressed air to dry before reinstallation. or B) Once installed, run ice dispenser at least once every 15 minutes for about an hour. This will keep the motor from freezing up. I didn't do either, and the next morning the motor was frozen and wouldn't work. I had to break free with pliers (risked doing damage to motor and new ice tray). I was lucky and motor works fine. Good luck!

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.

Very simple. Viewed the video that was linked to the web-page and followed the instructions. Longest part of the process was removing and re-attaching the cover on the back of the refrigerator. The video can do more to describe the repair than my words.

ice maker inopeative

went on line and ordered new ice maker for this model refrigerator. Received the new part. New icemaker provided video for replacement of ice maker.Used the video showing the removal and replacement of the ice maker to begin the removal process. (must remove one mounting screw, then raise the icemaker up then out to unlatch the fixture.) This took over one hour, then had to remove wiring arness. Instrucions indicated to "squeez" the locking clip holding the connector, it is impossible to see the connector so it was a "feel" process. It turned out that squeesing the connector from the sides, did not work, finally squeezing the locking clip (top to bottom) finally released the connector. Then the installation (per video) reversed the removal procedure and that turned out to be about a two hour task because to align the ice maker when you cannot see the alignment / holding brackets was a very difficullt task. Then when it was finally installed, the one mounting screw, would not align with the previous mounting hole, because the tab on the new one was longer, requiring drilling a new hole to hold the icemaker in place. The hole had to be made using the same (self-tapping) screw, since the space available when the icemaker is installed is very limited. After the mounting hole was partally made, driving the screw the rest of the way had to be done with a ratchet, other then that, everything was just great.

I shut the water valve and bled the pressure off by using the water dispenser. Removed the four screws that hold the cardboard backing on the unit. Unplugged the power cord, loosened the metal water supply fitting. Then I removed all three hose fittings and dried the drips with a towel. I pushed the electrical plugs off with a flat blade screw driver. Removed the bracket attachment screw and pulled the double valve out. The new valves came with a push-lock fitting for the plastic hoses so I pushed them into their sockets. Put the new valve in and replaced the attachment screw. Reattached the water supply line and the electrical connectors. I turned the water on and checked for leaks. replaced the cardboard backing, and plugged the power cord back in.

I took everything out of the door of the fridge and then unscrewed the bracket on the top of the door holding it to the fridge. Once all 3 screws were out I picked up on the door to remove it from the lower brackets that was holding it on the bottom of the fridge. I then placed the door on two bar stools to take the hinge pin and door closer off. Once they were unbolted and the new ones installed. I put the door back resting on the lower bracket as it was when I pulled it off. I then screwed one screw on the top bracket to hold the door and lined it up evenly and put the other two screws in and tightened them down. Everything was really easy to change and the door closes perfectly.
