Ice Maker Leaking

I turned off the water and electricity to the refrigerator. Then I removed the ice bin exposing the ice maker. I loosened the two screws on the wall with a 1/4" nutdriver and I removed the horizontal screw on the bottom of the ice maker again with the nut driver. That allowed me to lift off the ice maker so that I could remove the wiring harness from the ice maker. A flat screwdriver helped me push in the retaining tab, and disengage the harness. Installation was in the reverse order. A third hand would have helped reconnect the wiring harness, but I put a shoe box on the top shelf of the freezer compartment to hold the new unit while I connected the wiring harness, making sure to "hear it click" when fully engaged. I then removed the wire "feeler" from the old unit and inserted it in the new one. Inserting the water inlet hose and hanging the ice maker was simple after that. The existing bracket holding the ice maker on the bottom was not rusted so I did not replace it even though a new one came with the ice maker. I should add that I had previously defrosted the freezer in order to remove the ice bin as it could not be removed with the block of ice that had frozen in the front end. I'm a senior citizen with no prior experience in changing an ice maker. I wasn't trying to set an amount of time it could take which was about 40 minutes, including the time it took to turn off/on the water and electric breaker and go to the garage for a flat screwdriver and find the right size nutdriver, and next time I could probably do the job in about 20 to 30 minutes!

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.

Ice maker stopped making ice

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.

I recently bought an old Amana refrigerator for my garage on CraigsList for 75 bucks. It was in great condition for its age, but was missing the post that supports the fruit and veggie crisper drawers. I did a Google search, quickly found PartSelect, and just as quickly located and ordered the missing part, which was reasonably priced. PartSelect promised it woud be delivered in 3-5 days by FedEx Ground and it was. I took it out of the box, removed the crisper backets - and glass cover for them - installed the post and WHA-LA, the crisper backets work just as good as when the fridge was new! Couldn't have had an on-line mal-order operation go any slicker!

Wasn't making ice cubes anymore

  • Customer: Thomas from Brick NJ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Unlike what the online video showed, my bottom freezer French door refrigerator didn't use hooks to secure the icemaker in place. Instead, it used three tabs with screws to secure it in place. I could see two of them, but not the third one. After removing two screws and realizing that the icemaker was still pretty well secured, I felt around and found the third screw (at the top, right behind the front of the icemaker). Once I got that out, the replacement went easily, as shown on the video. That third screw was a little challenging to put back, but after a few tries I got it in. The icemaker is now making ice like a champ! Good work PartSelect! And the part came quickly, as advertised.

First pulled the Ice tray out of the freezer, Pulled the cord for the power to the refrig. Removed 3-Srews with the nut driver and disconnected the Power Supply to the Ice maker. Removed it from the freezer and started to remove the Bail and install the bail in the new Ice maker. Remove the cover from the side of the old ice maker and install it on the new ice maker. Put it back in the Refrig and connected the power cord and installed the 3-screws and reinstalled the Ice Tray and 30 mins. later it started making ice. Thanks for the Youtube Video it helped a lot to take the pressure off of doing it your self.
