After what I thought was a thorough troubleshooting of said problem I replaced the Water Valve Assy which was really easy as the video shared, but it did not fix my problem. I had forgotten to pull the water line apart at the coupling below the doors (this was a troubleshooting step in another area). The water not dispensing was due to the line being frozen! Putting all items in a cooler with a couple blocks of ice and leaving the freezer door open for the length of watching a movie, the water was flowing again. Still no ice though. Ice maker vs mother board at the rear of the fridge, Hmmmm. Went with the ice maker, watched video, ole Steve makes the plugs disconnecting look easy, I had to use a flat head screwdriver to open the clips (he doesn't mention that) and I had 4 screws where he had 3. Also he didn't mention about the instructions which gives you 3 options with your unit. I had to re-use my Plastic Stripper Plate along with the Fill Cup and Ice Maker Insert. After completion of installation and about a half hour later, I heard ice fall, Wooohoooo!!! Overall the experience will make me think to utilize PartSelect again when needed. Reasonable prices and decent shipping time. Now the freezer light is out...

Ice maker leaking

Quite easy. Turn off water supply and turn off ice maker at switch inside freezer. Unscrew the old unit, separate the electrical connection, and pull it out. New unit comes with parts that do not fit my refrigerator, so visually examine the new and old units, reuse any needed parts from the old unit, such as plastic water ramp. Reconnect the electrical connector, and screw it back in. Turn water supply back on and then turn ice maker back on at switch inside freezer. Discard unused parts. Wait up to 24 hours for new ice cubes to be made.

The video on the GE site was great. Showed step by step instructions on how to remove the old ice maker and install the new one. Also helpful was the detail on the water chute which needed to be moved from the old ice make to the new one. Saved hundreds of dollars by not having to have a repairman do this work for me.

Took out one hex screw, disconnect electric couplings, pulled original ice maker out and found that the water supply line to the ice maker was frozen solid as well as the shute cup. Used hair dryer to thaw out the line and the cup reinstaled old ice maker and it worked fine. Did not have to use the new part at all at this time. Am keeping new part for future use.

I watched the video from the link that was sent to me with the shipping notice. It was very easy to understand. I had no trouble at all. I'm 75 years old woman, however, and I can fix about anything. Don't be afraid to fix appliances yourself if you feel you have the knowledge.

Old Icemaker Stopped Making Ice

Instructions that came with the part were useless. I would have created new problems if I had attempted to follow the instructions. However, once I had the old part removed and put it beside the new part, required repair process was obvious, easy and quick. Frig now makes ice better than it ever did.

I'm a housewife in her late 40's. Before ordering the part, I watched your video on how to remove and install the new icemaker. First I unplugged the refrigerator. After a few minutes, I unplugged the icemaker and unscrewed it. I lifted it a bit and removed it. I did not use the icecup that comes with the part. Instead I removed the one from the old part and inserted it to the new one. Then I plugged in the new icemaker, placed it inside so as to match the holes and screwed it in. YES, it was that simple. It took me less than 10 minutes to do this. I saved myself over $100!!

Ice Maker would not dispense or crush ice

  • Customer: Herbert from Lansdale PA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I took the ice tray out of the brackets. Then, I removed the bracket from the right side (3 screws). I removed the back panel (4 screws). Needed to pop the right hande connecter off of it. I tried to get the back connector. Probably should have just removed all the connections from the back panel. Instead, I just removed them from the motor. The motor itself had three screws that I took off. I pulled out the motor and put the new one in. Had some trouble lining the screw holes of the motor with the back panel. If I would have removed the other connections, I could have taken the whole back panel out and lined up the screws easier. I put everything back together in the opposite order I tool it apart. Gave it a try and it worked.

Ice not dispensing. Motor would turn but no ice would dispense.

Same repairs required by the majority of the posts. Early in the problem the motor and auger would turn but very little ice would dispense. Problem: Helix lock plate was stripped. Did not replace in time and auger would jam, finally stripping out the dispenser motor shaft. The fix was replace the dispenser motor even though it was only the shaft that was stripped. Entire repair was easy. To replace the Helix Lock remove the entire ice tray. Carefully disassemble the entire unit with a screwdriver/driver, noting the order of the crush blades and other parts for reassembly. Once auger is removed replace the helix lock plate and reassemble ice tray. To replace dispenser motor, use a nut driver to remove motor unit panel from back of the freezer. Only remove the screws necessary to remove the panel from freezer. Not all the screws need to be removed, some attach the motor to the panel and the others are for the dispenser door mechanism. Disconnect the two electrical connectors before removal. Once the panel is removed from the freeze, use pliers or vice grips to hold the motor shaft while removing the auger drive disp attachment. Some posts said they had to cut the shaft with although I was able to pry the attachment until enough of the threads caught and i could twist it off. Once drive auger attachment is removed, remove screws attaching the motor to the panel, disconnect the electrical cords (noting the position) and slide the motor out of the panel. Replace with the new motor and reconnect the electrical connections and screws. Make sure that the dispenser door mechanism is still securely attached and properly aligned. Reattach panel to freezer and reconnect the electrical. Insert ice tray and unit now works properly.
