ice maker not working

  • Customer: Amy from Caledonia MI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
watched the video you have on installation and followed it with ease. The only part you need a tool is to loosen the first nut and then everything else pretty much pops out and you reinstall with the new part. The icemaker worked within an hour and makes perfect cubes. The videos are super helpful.

I accessed the model with the model number, isolated the part and ordered it online. Very simple procedure and great online interface to identify the part. On receiving the part I disconnected the water line, followed the instructions to remove the bracket and then the valve. Re-attached the new valve and replaced the bracket. Attached the water supply and tested the valve. Once it all worked fine I moved the refrigerator back into position.

After Watching the Video, this Job was very easy. I moved the Refridgerator away from the Wall, disconnected Power, shut-off water shut-off valve, unscrewed Water Line and caught water in a small pan. Loosened up 1 screw and removed valve, unplugged 2 electrical connections and bottom water line. I cut-off an inch of line and reinstalled the valve in reverse order. Plugged Refridgerator back in and instantly had water at Dispensor. Now the ice-cubes are normal size. Thank-you PartSelect.

  • Customer: Sylvia from Roxboro NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Did all of work without removing door. Door is approximately 2 1/2" off floor, so shim door with a piece of two by four and wood shims to hold door level while removing bolts. Had mirror lying on floor underneath the hinge to see location of bolts. Removed 3 bolts that hold the metal bracket. After removing the bracket the pin slides out. Then remove another bolt from the door closer, this enables the old closer to be removed. Then replace new closer with one bolt. Slide hinge pin back in place making sure tab is toward refrigerator to line up with hole in metal bracket. Replace metal bracket with bolts. Tools used were 1/4" drive ratchet, 1/4" drive 3" extension and a 1/4" drive 5/16 " socket

Problem caused by ice cubes falling out of ice bin and collecting at rear and interfering with ice dispenser drive. Broke plactic drive ring. Pull down 2 clips at front bottom of ice bin. Pull ice bin out. Dump ice cubes. Remove 8 star drive screws to allow case to move far enough to clear broken drive ring. Replace drive ring. Reinstall and tighten 8 screws. Install ice bin. Correct loose right side ice cube retainer board to prevent cubes from falling out of ice bin.

Replaced the "Run Capacitor. The non-rythmic clicking associated with the compressor coming on continues. The problem was obviously not the Run Capacitor". I don't know what to do next. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Phillip

The freezer was too cold and the refrigerator (side by side) too warm.

  • Customer: Marshall A from Spokane WA

First, turn the unit off, either at the wall or at the circut panel. Empty the freezer and remove the shelves. To remove the inside back panels (3) covering the coil, drain and fan assembly, remove four (4) hex-head 1/4" screws. The most time consuming part of the repair was defrosting the coils. When the defrost heater fails, the coils literally freeze solid. Before you begin you must make certain that the drain and drain pan, directly under the coils, are not blocked--iced over. Add hot tap water to the pan drain, best applied (and removed) with a basting syringe. Be carefull not to overfill the pan. You may need to repeat this process over and over again until the drain runs freely. Defrosting the coils is time consuming. If you're not in a hurry, or worried about food spoiling, leave the freezer door open for the day. However, if you're impatient, use a hair drier or heat gun and cups of hot water. It may still take 30 minutes or better until the heater/thermostat assembly, running down the right side of the coils, is free of ice and accessable. Note, there is only one way to remove and reinstall the heater and thermostat assembly: unclip the leads at the top of the coil, pull back the foam spacer, and ease the wires out along the side. The heat element is suspended just below the coils by a single wire clamp. Whatever you do, don't damage this clamp. Once the coil is free your job is 90% done. Reconnect the leads up top, slide the wires back alongside the coils, reset the foam top space, and suspend the heat element. Reinstall the inside back panels, shelves and food. Turn the freezer on. Regarding the wiring: If in doubt, take a picture with your phone or digital camera before you disconnect the wiring and refer to the picture before reconnecting the wires. Lastly, we had issues with this Jenn-Air not defrosting before. Our remedy was to call out the repair man each time. Not only was that expensive, about $200 a visit, but they never replaced the thermostat/heater. Buying the unit from Part Select was $50. Delivery was fast and the time involved to replace it was just over an hour. It was well worth the time and effort to do myself. Good Luck.

freezer normally functioning, refrigirator side too warm

  • Customer: Joseph from Hamburg NJ
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

I watched the instructional video included with the shipping date e-mail(about 3 minutes long), and simply followed the instructions. It took about 2 days for the refrigirator section to return to normal cool temperature to the level set.

Freezer Section was freezing up over coils not allowing air to pass through to refrigator section!

Open freezer doors and turned freezer to off position. Removed back panels to freezer! Let stand until ice was melted. Turn off breaker to refrigator since the refrigator was too large to pull out of custom cabinet for me. I'm a 54 year old female. Removed clips and Defrost Heater and Thermostat Assembly and replaced with new one. Replaced the panels. Turn breaker back on and turn the freezer to on position. Dumped the first tray of ice. It's been about a week with no problems. With a little research the average person can diagnose their problem and if you are handy with a screw driver and don't mind get down on the floor you can save yourself some, time and money and feel good about your achivement upon successful completion. Well at less it has always worked for me! I can fix most things that the average guy won't even think about! Well I've always said that I have more time than money! Choose you battles!

The original ice eclosure broke

  • Difficulty: Easy

Turn off the appliance. There is a screw under the left side that must be removed. Then you will need to kind of push back and lift up on the old enclosure to remove. Once free, reach back on the left side and uncouple the wiring harness. You will need to squeeze in the top and bottom to free it. The hardest part was removing the ubolt off of the motor. I used my vice and a pair of waterpump pliers. Remember the threads are counter clockwise. Then it is just a matter of installing the old parts on the new enclosure and sliding it back in place. You will need to remove the water from the ice maker to get it to start again. Rather than removing it it pour the water out, I just soaked it up with a sponge.
