Water leak from ice maker was causing cubes to freeze into clumps in ice bin

  • Customer: Curtis from Saint Peters MO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Repair went just like the video. Since refrigerator and freezer are side-by-side, it's a little harder to get to the screws. This is where the small mirror comes in handy.

My refrigerator needed the extra brackets. This was not mentioned in the video and just a small sentence in the instructions.

I had to take the icemaker cover door off to get the icemaker in. Then I realized I needed to use the additional brackets.

Ice maker would not make any ice

All of the parts are removed and install through the front of the freezer bin. Remove three screws and unplug the old one. I plugged the old wiring directly in and set the new ice maker on two of the screws for alignment, then screwed in the third screw, tightened everything. Install the arm that checks the status of the amount of ice and waited for it to fill up with ice.

Water overflow from ice maker turns ice in tray into block

  • Customer: Patrick from Las Vegas NV
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Symptom: The ice maker was making ice, but sometimes the water would run and overflow at the entrance of the ice maker, spilling water into the ice catch and turning all of the ice into a huge block. The problem was that the liner of the ice maker had started to flake off, but only on part of the unit. When water would flow into the ice maker, the exposed part would freeze quickly, creating an ice dam and block the rest of the water from flowing into the other trays, thus overflowing. Solution: A new ice maker unit was ordered online, then after watching the video on how to fix, the process was straightforward and fairly simple. There is one screw to remove, 2 to loosen, and a wire harness to remove to remove the ice making unit. Then the ice full bar was removed from the old unit and put onto the new unit and the entire assembly replaced inside the freezer. The most difficult part of the job was loosening the screws by touch as there isn't a lot of room to see.

Ice maker began making large block of ice, although still made cubes, bur required emptying weekly.

It was so simnple that I let my wife do the repair. All she had to do was to turn of the water supply and unplug the refrig. loosen two screws on top and remove one screw on the bottom of the ice maker. Gentle tilt the unit in order to unplug the electric connection on the rear of the unit and then take it out. The new unit went back the same way in reverse order.

Broken Water Nozzle at Door

  • Customer: Chris from Brentwood TN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
(1) Ordered PS371704 from PartSelect! Best advice EVER! (2) Unplugged refrigerator (since the water solenoid on the back of the refrigerator is powered to switch ON the water, you NEVER have to turn off the water!) (3) Pull off the refrigerator's bottom grill. (4) With a small saucer under the fittings, unscrew the black and white tube fitting. There is only one nut to remove on the white tubing side. You'll need to undo the compression fitting on the black tubing and slide off the compression nut. You'll need to MAKE SURE you keep these nuts and replace onto the black and white tubing the SAME WAY you took them off. You'll NOT need to use nut drivers as finger tight is the key. Too hard and you'll ruin these plastic nuts. You should get only about 1/8 cup or less of water during this whole exercise. (5) Cut off the old, broken water nozzle. (4) Find a screw of the appropriate size to fit tightly 1/2 way inside the new tubing (this is to ensure your old and new tubing are connected to feed through the door). If screw is not tight within the tubing, wrap part of a plastic (thin) sack around this screw a couple of times and force into the tubing. You'll, of course, then need to use the hacksaw to cut the head off the screw as you'll be forcing the other half of the screw into the old cut tubing (6) Chase the dog out of the kitchen and cajole your wife (significant other) to push the newly joined tubes through the top of the dispenser, through the door and out the bottom as you will be gently PULLING on this old tubing from the bottom until the new tubing pops through the doors bottom. (7) Once this new tubing is out, you will separate the old tubing and, using the nuts in the proper sequence, connect this new tubing to the white tubing. (8) Plug the refrigerator back in and test flow the water. Check to ensure the plastic nuts have no leakage ... button up the bottom grill ... and enjoy the fresh water! PS> Don't forget to praise the wife (significant other) and give the dog a treat for staying out of your face!!

1. Turn off ice maker and cut power to refrigerator. 2. Remove food from top two freezer shelves and remove top shelf. 3. Using nut driver, remove screw that secures plastic shield to the bottom of ice maker. Remove shield and place it on the empty freezer shelf. 4. Remove ice maker unit by sliding it free of the two rails that hold the bottom of the unit in place ... when it is free of the rails, pivot the left-hand end of the unit downward to allow access to the electrical connection. 5. To pull the electrical connector apart, use a small flat-end screwdriver to pry (gently) just above the little protrusion that keeps the two halves secure during operation. 6. Once the electrical connector has been pulled apart, the unit can be placed on a counter top. Pull the square plastic shield off the left-hand side of the unit (it just pulls off, no screws hold it in place) and set it aside on the counter. 7. Remove the 3 screws that hold the motor assembly in place with a phillip's screw driver. Pull off the motor assembly and push on the new motor assembly ... you might have to "wiggle" the white plastic "fingers" over the ice bin to get the axle aligned properly with the motor assembly ... this is very easy to do. 8. Screw new motor assembly in place. 9. Holding the ice maker at an angle in the freezer, reconnect the electrical connectors, then hold the ice maker level in front of the side rails and push it back in place. Replace the small shield and secure it with the screw and nut driver. Replace freezer shelf and food, restore power to the refrigerator, turn on ice maker switch. Wait a few moments and hear the blessed sound of water filling the ice maker tray. Put away tools, check time (a 10-minute job!), do victory dance ... and then see the shield that covers the motor assembly still sitting on the counter! Repeat process, except this time it is not necessary to take apart the electrical connection ... but, of course, the ice maker now has water in it so when you tip it to push the shield back on ... Suffice it to say, that even though I had to do the job twice, I was thrilled with my $59.00 part ... we live in the boonies so a service call by a repairperson would have cost me more than $200.00 ... plus the part and labor. Blessings upon PartSelect!!!!
