No ice being made - Kitchenaid fridge

  • Customer: rahul from new york, NY

Barely a couple years old, was not getting any ice. I carefully selected the right part on this website and ordered. Around $150 and was easy install.

1. Mine was upper and lower freezer. you slide the freezer door out and lift it up, it will come right off.
2. pull out the tray above and ice bucket
3. Use a screwdriver to unscrew 2 screws above and one below the existing icemaker
4. unclip the power cable line

Thats it!

Point to note: the new piece you get will not have the power cable line, the water cover and the metal arm. I would think it should have for $150, but keep this as you will need a few little parts to complete the new part before installing it back.

VERY easy to do installation. Dont pay anyone to do this, it can be done easy!

Unplug fridge, close off water supply valve. Remove two screws attaching assembly to freezer wall, detach wiring harness. Remove parts from old assembly: wiring harness, shut-off rod, harness clamp and attach to new assembly. Connect wiring harness, two screws attach new assembly to freezer wall. Plug in fridge and open water supply valve (after an opportunity to change in-line filter). Works now!

Ice Maker stopped making ice

First, I removed the ice bucket. Then I removed the two top left screws and bottom screw with a 1/4 inch nutdriver. I pulled the assembly out as far as the wiring harness would allow, disconnected the harness on the lower left side, and removed the unit. I removed the old motor cover and ice stop wire and placed them on the new unit. I then reversed the process. It went so fast that the freezer must have still been close to zero degrees because it filled with water within 15 minutes.

The coating was coming off of the ice maker and ending up in the ice.

I first loosened the hex screws and lifted the unit off. Then I unplugged old unit from the wiring harness. I did have to switch the inlet funnel since the new unit was a little different. I used the one from the old unit. I then plugged it back in, rehung and tightened the screws. The unit started operating within a few hours.

Piece of cake. Removed two screws, pivoted old ice make up, lifted it out of the mounts. Installing the new one was just the reverse.

First, unplug power to Fridge, then remove ice bin and set to one side, then remove the clip that holds the fill tube down by pulling up on it, and remove the fill tube. Remove the two top screws on ice maker assembly first, as the bottom screw will support unit. Then remove the single bottom screw. Rotate the Ice Maker slightly down and this will expose the electrical connector. With a short, small, flat head screwdriver in your left hand, depress the locking tab for the connector, while your right hand supports the assembly and pulls the connector outward to disconnect. Remove old Ice Maker, and remove the bin full lift wire, it's a slide in fit and install in your new unit. Check your fill tube water diverter on the right side of Ice Maker unit , you may need to remove the blank, it is U shaped and molded for easy removal, but use caution when removing to be on the safe side, this allows the fill tube to go down into the diverter, Re-Assemble in reverse order. Give the unit plenty of time to reach proper operating temp, and cycle. Make sure and discard your first Ice cycle.

Plug frig and and it filled with water in about 15 minutes and started making ice. Part was a exact match to the one I removed.

water over flowing into ice bin

  • Customer: mark from hamilton, NJ

First i removed the three screws that held the assembly to the fridge, then removed the water flow tube from ice maker. 2- flipped ice maker over ,then used a small flathead to push in locking tab that held wire harness and out comes ice maker. All though the water cup was not quite the same i used the old ice maker to take apart to see how it was put together,hopeing there wasn't a myriad of parts. -NO INSTRUCTIONS- piece of cake, don't take out outside screws,take out the 2 inside screws-these srcews hold the guts to the water tray-pull apart and reassemble the unit after you have switched the cups. then reinstall into fridge with your outside cover and the full bin wire and your done. It helps to be alittle mechanicly inclined. -NO GUTS NO GLORY,DONT BE AFFRAID TO LOOK OUTSIDE THE BOX-

the task itself was simple, the freezer being on the bottom of refrigerator made it difficult for a 84 yr. man to get to. It did take a long time for the icemaker to kick in..

I simply removed 3 nut head screews and the old unit came off. I removed the ice level arm off the old unit and put on the new one. I removed the old wire harness and plugged into the new unit. I mounted the new unit, plugged it in and was done. I had ice in less than an hour. So simple my 11 year old could have done it without help.

Ice maker would overflow

Most of the stories on repairing this ice maker indicated that was real easy until describing the Amana version. The fill tube attaches differently. The recommendation was to use your old "cup". I have found that to make the change required that you find a philips screw driver and locate two access holes in the motor end of the control unit. you can loosen those two screws (they won't fall out) all of the way and pull the control unit from the tray part of the ice maker. DON'T remove the three screws that hold the control unit together or rotate the sprocket. This will allow you to disassemble the parts that hold the "cup" in place. Just remember "if it isn't coming apart easily your not doing it right".
