Replacing the ice maker was the easy part, next morning still no ice so called repairman, replaced fuse in wiring harness, next morning still no ice, called repairman again to find out that thermostat in brand new ice maker is bad, had to reuse old thermostat to make new ice maker work so could not return it to partselect.com. New ice maker cost $108 and repairman $90, expensive lesson learned.

Repair done according to video and instructions. What you need to know is myself and my husband are adverse to all kinds of "simple" repairs because they never go well and we are not handyman kind of persons. This, I must say, was a delightful change in our typical experience of attempting to make our own repairs.
Thanks
Sandy

The Ice maker unit had to be removed and the shaft had to also be removed, which required dis-assembling the motor drive. The thickness of the shaft and the bearing fill cup prevents it from simply pushing it in place. Other than that I have Ice.

Followed the online PartSelect video instructions and it was very helpful. The ice maker has to cycle through before it starts making ice so don't be alarmed when nothing happens when you first hook it up.

I removed the ice catcher from the excellent packaging, rinsed it, and placed it on the counter next to the fridge. I opened the door the the freezer and placed the ice catcher under the icemaker. I lowered the arm on the icemaker and closed the door to the freezer. Then I opened the door to fridge, took out a Guinness, popped the top, and sat down to savor my success.

Followed the other directions -- I have the bottom tray freezer. It was really easy to unscrew the screws -- a bit of a reach to get them all, but not a problem. Leave the top screws half-way in and it's a bit easier (the icemaker has the brackets that just sit on the screws). Thanks to everyone who left instructions!

Icemaker was leaking, leaving black chunks in ice

  • Customer: Jay from Phoenix AZ
  • Difficulty: Really easy

I simply removed the 3 screws holding the unit into the freezer with a nutdriver, then disconnected the power plug (a little hard to get to, and requires releasing a small tab in a hole in the main body). The icemaker came right out with no problem. I then had to change out the water funnel inlet because mine had a different style than the one provided on the new one. This was easy also, just remove 2 phillips head screws that are set deep in 2 holes in the face of the motor drive unit, then pull the whole assembly apart far enough to allow the ejector blades to slip out of the hole through the inlet funnel, then snap the funnel loose to move it to the new one (the same technique to be used on the new one, then re-assemble in reverse order).
