Pulled the plug on the refrig. ( This is important since the heating bar on the bottom of the ice maker could come on as soon as you plug it in and burn your hand ). Removed the ice bin to get it out of the way and then removed the 1/4" hex screw from the support bracket under the old ice maker ( don't lose it ). Pushed up on the old ice maker to dislodge it from the 2 support clips on the top of the ice maker. Squeezed both sides of the wire harness plug and pulled it out and removed the old ice maker. Removed the wire harness and level bar from the old ice maker and installed them on the new ice maker. Plugged the ice maker wire harness into the female receptacle in the freezer. Popped the ice maker in to the top support clips making sure the rubber water chute from the refrig. was in place in the round ice maker receptacle. Plugged bak in the refrig. and I was getting ice in about 2 hours. Working fine after 1 week producing plenty of ice. RussK---

following the advice of this site, purchased a new ice maker. Old one was simple to unhook and remove and new one was just as easy to install. Within no time at all, I had ice being made and it has been working perfect since. Thank you for the help...

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

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.

Followed the Video, and it went almost as the video, except for the rails for the ice tub, so instead of the nut driver, had to use an open end 1/4" wrench. Now its a working with lots a ice....

Fast delivery...Great video instructions..The only difficulty is when I tried to take the cable out. It's kind of hard and far away from my reach. So, I took only the cable out on Ice Maker end.

Unplug refrigerator, turned off water to ice maker, unscrewed bracket, lifted ice maker off clips, pulled out water hose,disconected wiring harness and lifted out old icemaker. Reversed the process and it worked like a breeze and no service call. Space is very tight and you have to do a lot of feeling without actually seeing what you're doing and you need a small flashlight. It was so easy with diagram provided on PartSelect's website.

Found PartsSelect on internet. Read data, watched remove/replace video, ordered new Ice Marker. Arrived in 11/2 days-quick. Both removel and install very easy; three easy to remove screws, disconnect wire harness pull it out. However, water cup on end of the new Ice Maker was faceing 90 degrees the wrong way! Had to totally disassemble both new and old Ice Makers to swap water cups. Reassemble, pray it was done correctly and install. New Ice Maker works like a champ and no leaking--Thanks PartsSelect.
