After replacing the pump in the back of the fridge with no luck I finally decided that it had to be up front. So I ordered the front cover, Ice maker, a new auger and the water dispenser control. For a semi-novice the whole repair was not complicated, my wife had to provide an extra pair of hands to get the ice maker unplugged from inside the freezer but after that it was smooth sailing. Just make sure you look at the water feed tube in the back of the freezer to determine if it's plugged.

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.

Ice Maker would not dispense or crush ice

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.

Had to grind down the three middle plastic arms with a small grinder. The arms on the icemaker would hit the plastic arms and break the new one off too if this wasn't done. Perfect fit now.

Ice maker wouldn't drop cubes from tray properly

  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours

After three different people tried fitting the new stripper arm into place, all gave up insisting I was sent the wrong part. After much frustration and not getting any help from your contact phone number I took matters into my own hand and refashioned the replacement part to fit. I had to trim the tines down between each rotating part that pushes out the cubes and trim part of the body of the stripper arm itself. After replacing the entire unit back into the freezer and turning it back on, within an hour, I started hearing cubes drop in the bin. It's now working ok.

Remove ice tray, turn off ice maker lever, then remove what's left of old Stripper Arm. Then align the Stripper Arm tab (one with hole in it on right) with 1/4" long cylindrical metal peg. Holding peg in Stripper Arm hole, guide the left hand side tab into the groove on the Icemaker housing. Make sure the tines of the Stripper Arm are on top of the Icemaker metal body. Assuming you keep the peg in the hole and the left side plastic tab into the groove on the Icemaker body, you should be good to go. Turn Icemaker lever back on, then insert ice tray. You should hear the first batch of ice cubes start to drop within a few minutes. Enjoy!

I have had this apart before, so I had some experience at it. The only reason I say it was a little difficult, is I couldnt get in a good position to do some things. As far as the partsourse descriptions, they are fantastic. We had fixed My wifes parents refrigerator also by using the video they have to view. Very good site.
