If you watch the video on PartsSelect that will give you a general idea of how to do the repair except mine was in a bottom drawer freezer. You have streach a little to get to the screws holding the ice maker to un-screw them just enough to lift the ice maker out.

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.

It is a simple and quick repair especially if one is even a little capable. May take some extra care and thinking for one who is not but still should be fairly quick and without troubles. I am not happy with the product as it does not make ice even half as quickly as the original. Many have stated the first or the first few cycles are very long and then it became quicker and more normal. Its been a week and I also tried shut it off several times just to reset it. It makes ice wonderfully but takes forever. I've yet to have a full bin of ice. Even without using ice for a couple days or very little in a few days. I am considering returning it for this reason.

I never would have imagined that my husband and I could replace our ice maker so easily. We simply fired up the step-by-step video on my tablet, paused it as we did each step and voila! Usually there is a lot of cussing with any repair we do and I don't think there was even one cuss word uttered. Thank you for the clear and concise instructions!

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.

The ice maker stopped working and left "kling-ons" in the tray. At one time the trays kept trying to fill which only sent water pouring into the freezer compartment.

Searching Google and Youtube produced trouble-shooting guidance to first check the water inlet valve which I did. I should have realized the valve was working since the ice-maker was trying to fill the trays. Additional advice recommended skipping all the other component troubleshooting and merely replace the old unit which I did. The big difference with the Amana appliance was the icemaker was installed laterally in the back of the freezer rather than longitudinally with the end of the control wheel positioned towards the front of the freezer. This created a tight fit in removing the old unit, especially since the wiring harness was extremely short. The latter made access to the plug release catch difficult. I used a small flat blade screwdriver and worked mainly by feel to release the plug catch. Persistent wrangling finally got the plug detached and the unit free. The water inlet hose also had a rear access orientation while the replacement unit had access was from the side. The hacksaw blade was used to cut a pre-outlined access to allow the hose to enter from the rear as with the old unit. Once the shut-off bail was transferred, wiring harness reconnected, and water inlet positioned and clipped into place, the mounting screws were secured. Within 24 hrs the first ice cubes popped and the unit has filled the ice reservoir. Keep in mind I just ordered the icemaker and did not need any other add-ons like a different wiring harness which seemed to work fine. Confirm when you order you don't need any additional parts. Good service for PartSelect. I will use them again.

Freezer compartment coils would not defrost causing the refrigerator side compartment not to stay cold.

Turned off the refrigerator. Removed the freezer storage baskets. Removed two screws on the back panel. Removed the top and bottom panels. Unplugged and unclipped the wires above the coils. Removed the metal tub holding the heater in place on the right side of the coil. Removed the clip from the bottom of the coil holding the heater up and then carefully guided the wire harness from along side of the coils and removed the heater. To install the new heater thermal assembly I just reversed the order that I took the old one out.

When calling to see what the repair would cost my prices ranged from 250.00 to 175.00 with parts and labor. But I decided to tackle this project myself after watching the installation video. My parts arrived quickly and I watched the video had my repair completed within 30min and saved myself over 100.00 dollars. Thank you PartSelect!! The step by step instructions made this project a breeze.

unplug power! Remove the screws from lower panel on back of refrigerator. Lift wire mount out of back panel. Capacitor is mounted directly to the relay and overload switch located on the left side of the compressor. Remove the spring clip holding the capacitor in place and pull the old capacitor out. Plug in new capacitor and replace spring clip. Use vacuum to remove dust from drip pan and wipe fan blades clean. Replace wire into slot on back panel and replace screws. Remove front coil cover below freezer door. vacuum dust off coils and replace cover. Plug refrigerator in and enjoy cold beverages. Relay and overload kit were not required for this repair.

Ice maker was leaking and needed to be replaced

I followed the instructions shown on the YouTube video on the Parts Select site. I had to make a few modifications. There were two nuts that had to be loosened to lift the ice maker off the freezer wall. The mounting bracket had to be transferred from the old icemaker to the new one to align with the hole in the freezer to reattach. The white wire went under the clip was a black wire but it was easily recognized. Other than that it was very straight forward and I had new ice in a few hours. I would definitely do it again.

Plastic tip broke off the insulated flap. Would not seal against icemaker.

Removed two screws from face plate then nudged plate up until it cleared the two top screws. Removed three screws holding the actual kit in place. Gently pulled the unit forward and pulled the water tube out from above the kit, then disconnected the wires connecting the unit. At this time the unit is separated from the refrigerator and you can disconnect the solenoid to remove it. The plunger in the solenoid was a little different from the old one as it connects to the insulator flap bar but Partselect has made a good/easy modification for replacement. Before installation I recommend lubricating the plastic actuator switch. Reverse the procedures you used to access the unit. Very easy.
