Ice Maker stopped making ice

The ice maker stopped making ice. Cold water was still available at the freezer door dispenser which seemed to isolate the problem to the ice maker control board/motor. My ice making unit was not identical to the one in the video, but close. After disconnecting the power, I was able to replace the control board/motor without having to remove the entire ice making unit. Total time for repair was under 15 minutes.

Undid the bolts to the ice maker, unplugged it and took it out of the freezer. Removed the cover, unplugged the motor and unscrewed the motor from the casing. To install new motor screw it into the casing, plug it in and replace the cover.

My husband watched the video on the repair and followed it step by step...works like a charm! The repair shop wanted 299.55 to fix it - the part was 79.00....big savings by doing it ourselves.

It was not the icemaker, instead it was the water inlet valve. I had ice in one hour. The biggest problem was getting the refrigerator from against the wall.

Loosen two top screws and removed one bottom screw and unplugged the old ice maker. Installed old arm on the new ice maker and plugged in new ice maker to the existing plugs and reinstalled new ice maker. Dumped ice in about one and a half hours. Full bin within 72 hours. Super easy.

Shut off power,(breaker box), removed the ice container, this had the crusher, makes it easey to remove the timer assy, loosened up the upper hex head screws, removed the lower phillips screw. Dis-connect the feed wire assy. I elected to dis-connect first at the timer unit. Remove the timer cover, then access to the wire connecter,remove the heater unit on the side of the of water pan. Drop the unit out and if necessary change the wire loom at back of refrig-, install new loom if necessary, reverse process on ice unit. Took about 45 minutes +-, marked the timer dial, see if I got rotation, etc. There is ports on the face of the timer to check voltage's. Now will install new water valve , and water filter to make sure all is back to normal. Made ice on start up, EXCELLENT SERVICE, PARTS ARE GREAT, WITH NECESSARY INFORMATION. THANKS, BILL.

After I did the prep work of removing the items inside the door the project took less than 15 minutes to get the repair job done. 1. Remove the door by taking off the top hinge cover on top of the door, remove the three screws with a socket wrench, remove the plastic gasket under the hinge, left door up and off the lower hinge pin 2. Place the new bracket on the freezer door hinge pin, flange side down 3. I had to place an extra spacer washer, which I had on hand, on top of the hinge bracket 4. Replace the door on the bottom hinge pin 5. My husband held the door in place as I reattached the top of the door with the plastic spacer and 3 screws I had removed 6. Replaced the plastic gasket and hinge cap on the top 7. With the door reattached, I removed the existing screw under the door directly below the new hinge bracket, lined up the hinge bracket to the screw hole and attached it in place. Much to my surprise and pleasure, the door swings perfectly, stopping where it should with the door shelves loaded! Thank you PartSelect for having a part that would work for my 16 year old refrigerator even though I had to add a washer shim to make the new part as thick as the original.

The icemaker on oour Kenmore was fading fast. Ice was only being harvested once every 4-5 hours instead of every two. Then finally it stopped altogether. I did some research and decide that it was the motor assembly that needed to be replaced. I ordered the part and within 3 days it arrived. Within 45 minutes I replaced the part with the assistance of the youtube video. I am not a Mr. Fix-it but this was fairly straight forward. I am now a hero.

Noisy/Failing Condenser Fan

  • Customer: Craig from Tomah WI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Unplugged the refridgerator and pulled the rear cover. Had to take the fan blade off in order to get at the screws holding the existing motor in place. Removed the old fan. Pressing the new plastic fan onto the new motor shaft was a little more effort than expected, but I guess it won't come off. I have large hands so mounting the new unit was a little bit of a challenge getting the small screws started. Once the three screws were tightened all I had to do is plug the electrical connector in and replace the rear cover. I was happy that the existing electrical connector was the right one for the new motor too, and that I didn't have to use the provided wire harness. All in all the repair went pretty well.
