Removed the 3 screws that hold the ice maker in place and remove the cover and level wire. Put the cover and wire on new part and install the 3 screws. Had ice within 1 hour.

I removed the drawer, and removed the shelf and both rails. In the back were 2 clips to secure the shelf to the frame and stabilize the rails. Then I could move the glass shelf and access the broken rail and replace it with the beautiful new one. I feel like I Have a new fridge! I found the part on line even though I could not find the plate with the model number or year!

REMOVING THE OLD HEATER COIL WAS A BIT OF A TASK AS YOU NEED TO TAKE OFF ALL THE BRACKETS HOLDING THE HEATER COIL AND THEN REMOVE THE WIRING FROM BACK OF THE COIL. INSTALLING THE NEW HEATER COIL ASSEMBLY IN THE BRACKETS AND FEEDING THE WIRINGS BACK UP TO THE TOP WAS A MAJOR TASK. NEED TO HAVE LONG ARMS AS THE HEATER IS LOCATED WAY BACK IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT. THE PART WAS THE EXACT MATCH. THE PART WAS DELIVERED IN 2 DAYS. THANKS ALOT. WILL USE YOUR SITE AGAIN.

Icecubes came out half-way, and refrooze. I figured out, that the melter does not work (HEATER in the icemaker) Voltage measured 105V no load. Studied the Internet, and folloved an advice: shorted the back wire and the blackwire with white stripes.these go to relay contacts. It seems, that the relay contacts are no good on Infrared receiver boaed. I turn off manually the icemaker, when needed

After going to manufacturer's web site and customer service phone, was unable to locate the correct switch in the dispenser area on the door. Your web site had the picture of the switch and it was right on and in stock. Shipping was quick and inexpensive. Repair went quick and all is well.

Remove freezer contents, shelving, baskets, shelf brackets, basket rails. Then, remove the icemaker including the ice basket, the cube freezer and the motor assembly. Remove the back liner of the freezer compartment. Remove and replace the defrost heater assembly, using the old mounting brackets and connecting the wires to the same terminals. Reassemble.

After empting the shelves I unscrewed the water lines that go to and from the the water tank. I then unscrewed the three screws that holds the water tank to the back wall of the refrig. then unscrewed the two water lines located at the bottom of the water tank. I then installed the new water tank by screwing the water lines on to the new tank then screw the water tank back on to the back wall. Turned the water back on and it took a minute or two to bleed the air out of the water tank and water lines. It now works great

Refrigerator compartment warming up

The can drinks in refrigerator were not as cold as usual. I opened the freezer and touched the back panel and noticed there was a frost buildup. Since I have had this problem before, I knew that the defrost heater must be bad. I removed all the shelves and the tracks. The back panel is held in by 8 small sheet metal screws. I removed the screws and pulled the back panel up and out. The refrigerator is in garage, so I put a fan in front of it and the fan melted the ice off the coils. I disconnected the wires and checked the the heaters (both wired together) with an ohm meter. The meter showed the heaters to be open. (bad). Actually only 1 of the 2 heaters were bad, but I replaced both of them since they are wired together as a set.

My icemaker started leaking water into the catch basin and turning my ice into one big ice burg.

  • Customer: gary from carleton MI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

Well folks I put up with an ice burg all summer when I really should have took the time to fix it. You know how it goes though. You get so busy you just put it off.
Well don't put this one off because this is just how easy it went.
I came home one evening and wanted to make a drink to relax but that big glob of ice was there waiting for me. I took a crewdriver and beat it down so I could pull the catch basin out. Having looked it over for a minute I grabed a nut driver and took three of the screws out that held it in. I unpluged the wire and bingo it was out. Maybe five min. had elasped.
After taking the unit out I notice how the non stick surface was coming off of the tray and that explains the black pieces that were getting into my ice.
Getting the model number off the back of the fridge and writing it down I went to my trusty lap top and did a quick search for a ice maker for my Jenn Air refrigeraton and blamo...! Part Select came up and I put the part number in their search engine and bingo again there it was, my part.
One quick order and in three days it was right there by my door when I got home.
Now i'm so excited. I went into the house and didn't even chage out of my dress clothes. Within five minutes it was in. Now I just had to wait for the timer to do it's thing and sure enough, I awoke the next morning to a whole tray of beautiful ice cubes. Wow no more ice burgs.
The moral of my story is I spent so much time hacking out that glob of ice and for fifteen minutes of my time, I could have been siping on cold ones by the pool but now old man winter is pressing down on me and I guess a lesson learned was a lesson earned. Fix it!

The switch broke...absolutely fell apart.

I simply removed the old switch using 2 small screwdrivers and the old switch case popped out. I then upluged the wires from the old switch and reversed the process. Didn't take longer than 5 minutes begining to end! Thank you for the great service!
