Ice maker was not working

This refrigerator has the freezer on the bottom. You have to remove both of the drawers to get to the icemakeer. I did not disconnect the water line or the power to the unit because it is a hassle to pull the unit out of the hole where it resides. I first unplugged the power from the icemaker to the unit and used a flat tip screwdriver to get the icemaker out. The old one was gross. We had noticed flakes in the ice for over a year but thought it was the water. The wire bar from to stop making ice had to be moved from the old icemaker to the new one as well as a brace on the bottom of the icemaker and the front cover. This is all easy. The hardest part of the repair was getting the larger drawer back on its guide. Honestly, this was a repair my 11 yr old grandson could have done with some supervision. I'm guessing I easily saved $100 by repairing this myself.

Extremly easy - just followed the video exactly. Changing the ice make out couldn't have been more easy. when the ice maker was out - noticed some ice build up in the filling water tube. Used the hair dryer to defrost (will replace the double outlet water valve to stop this once my husband is there to help me pull out the frig.) We now have perfect ice cubes. still slowly having issues with some ice build up - but know the water valve is bad too. more to come!!

The replacement ice maker was exactly the same size and model. All the mounting screws lined up and install was snap. The website parts description was very good and helpful. We now have ice cubes with no over flowing glacier in the ice tray.

After receiving the new ice maker assembly I placed the new part next to the old one to see what I needed to transfer from the old to the new. After removing the wiring harness and a few small parts, I placed them on the new assembly. After that it was a snap which timewise took about 15 minutes. I am pleased to say the ice hopper is full and being replenished very efficiently.

1. Prepare the new ice maker by installing the bail cut off from old unit and installing the wiring harness from old ice maker. 2. Turn off the freezer unit only and turn off water supply. 3. Unplugged the electrical connector from the ice maker to the plug in back of freezer compartment. Remove the three (3) screws holding ice maker in place. Placed the cap from old unit to new ice maker. 4. Plug the electrical connector to the plug in back of freezer. Attached new unit with the three screws. Place bail in on position and turn the freezer and water on, ice made in circa 3 hours (without leaking I might add :)

Both light bulbs had been replaced, but lights did not turn on.

I tried to remove the old light switch using a putty knife and a hammer. It was hard to compress the plastic tabs to pull it back through the hole, but all of a sudden, the lights came on. I guess banging on the switch freed-up the contacts. The new switch is now a spare part in case I need it.

Broke the arm off the food compartment rocker switch

After receiving the new part almost immediately,using two screw drivers, removed the broken switch from the plastic frame. Be careful not to scratch or otherwise tear the plastic...very pliable. Since the original switch was factory installed and the wires were packed in fiberglass insulation, the switch came out but the wires and clips were still in place and could not reach the new switch. It was necessary to pull them down with bent long nose pliers...used a lot of "pull" but the wires held up.Connected the switch, turned the power on and there was light! Reports from other users really took the uncertainty out of the task.

I went online to PartSelect to see how much I'd expect to pay for the ice maker assembly if I called an appliance repairman to fix it. Instead I found an awesome, very well described video on how to do it myself. I ordered the part and paid ground shipping, but received it the next day!! Installation was a breeze (except I got help removing the electrical jacket because it was an awkward angle and I was afraid that I would damage it). The experience did as much for my single, 55 yr. old self esteem as it did for my wallet. Thank you PartSelect! I'll be back!
