Icemaker not making ice

Had a 1999 Kitchenaid Superba refrigerator that quit making ice. Based on online research, my icemaker's problem could have been either the icemaker itself or the dual water valve. I opted to try the icemaker replacement first after watching the helpful installation video. The only issue I had that made the repair the slightest bit difficult was that bolt-headed screws were used to secure the icemaker to the fridge wall rather than Phillips and the one nearest the door can't be seen while trying to loosen it. It only took an extra ten minutes to overcome this obstacle (maybe 20 minutes total). After replacing the icemaker, I thought the water valve must have been the problem after all since the unit did not immediately start filling with water. However, once the unit chilled down, it worked perfectly.

Found the replacement icemaker I needed on your web site,ordered and recdeived it within 2 days. Watched the how to video and did the replacement in less than 5 minutes.However,I waited(2 days) for the icemaker to start working, it never did. Thinking there was another problem in the icemaking system, I contacted a local appliance repair shop. They checked the entire system and everything was ok except the new icemaker. Turns out the new icemaker was defective. I contacted PartSelect and reported the technicians findings. I had another new icemaker in 2 days again. I again installed the new one and am now making ice. Thank you for the installation video and the teriffic service.

Old Ice maker leaking

Removed the old one. The new one had a power chord attached but it did not connect to the wire in the freezer. I saw it could be unplugged from the new ice maker and the power chord from the freezer plugged right in. Once installed, was not sure it worked but after a few hours it filled with water and started making ice. Works great now.

1. I removed the plastic back cover panel in the freezer. 2. Took flash photos with my phone of the motor and wire configuration. 3. Removed noisy Evaporator fan bracket from freezer. 4. Removed Fan Blade from old Motor. 5. Removed old Motor from Bracket. 6. Installed New Motor into the bracket. 7. Installed the fan blade onto motor spindle. 8. Installed the bracket onto the back wall of freezer. 9. Noticed that the tab for the ground wire was inaccessible. 10. Cursed like Linda Blair in the Exorcist for about 5 minutes. 11. Repeated steps 3 - 5... 12. Unscrewed the ground tab and placed it on the opposite side and screwed it back in. 13. Repeated steps 6 & 7.... 14. Tried to install the bracket and motor back onto the freezer but the bracket screw holes weren't lining up. When I removed the motor to flip the ground tab over, I reinstalled the motor onto the bracket upside down. 15. Tear some hair out of my head. 16. Repeated steps 4 & 5 and flipped bracket over. 17. Repeated steps 6 - 8... 18. Placed wires onto tabs. 19. Ground wire would not stay securely onto the tab. 20. Slightly opened up metal fastener of ground wire with needle nose pliers and stuck it onto the tab. 21. Still not on there super tight. I gave up wrestling with it and just prayed it will stay on there anyway. 23. Turned on freezer to check if it works. 24. Reinstalled plastic back plate. 25. Put melted food back into freezer.

I have a side by side so the space to work in was limited but I still completed the install in about 30 minutes. Unplugged the refrigerator then loosened the top two screws took out the bottom screw lifted the ice maker out just far enough to disconnect the power cord reversed the procedure. plugged it back in started making ice in 30 minutes. Probably would have not have taken that long my MS slowed me down a little. The repair man was going to be $300.00 plus $$75.00 trip charge what I paid was $128.41 that was with 3 day shipping.

Ice maker wasn't making ice

Pulled out the icemaker. Switched out the Motor Assembly (so easy) and woke up the next morning with ice. Our ice dispenser wasn't working either. This repair inspired me to take the ice dispenser apart and I found that the lever arm wasn't touching the contact when pressed. We now have ice and a working ice despenser. Oh yeah--my wife was so impressed. The part came in on time and it was very very easy to replace.

Shut water off to stop leak. Purchased new valve but it had different size fittings. Proper hardware was not included with the new part and was not available from PartSelect or Whirlpool, the maker of KitchenAid. I'm a paraplegic so my brother came over after I got the parts and the hardware. He was able to install the valve but it didn't work while he was here so he shut off the water supply and I'll have to wait and see if it works some other time. Until then, looks like I'll be using trays.
