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.

Identifying the correct replacement ice make was easy also, due to the photographs on PartsSelect.com

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-

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.

Ice maker quit working

I took the screws out holding old old ice maker, unpluged the electrical socket and old unit came right out. All I had to do then was plug electrical socket into new icemaker place unit in position and put the one screw back in the held it in place. 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.

Icemaker was leaking, leaving black chunks in ice

  • Customer: Jay from Phoenix AZ
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
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).

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.

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!

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 coating was cracked causing water to drip and freeze in ice catcher

  • Customer: Darrell from Destrehan LA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
First I loosened 2 phillips head screws at the top of the ice maker (the one that is close to the front is a little difficult to get a screwdriver on). These 2 screws do not have to be removed. Took 1 screw out of the L-bracket at the bottom of the ice maker. I then slipped the icemaker upward from the 2 top screws and unplugged the electrical wires at the connector at back of the refrigerator to remove the ice maker. I then removed the front cover from it and placed it on the replacement ice maker. I also swapped the L-brackets on the two ice makers as the new one was bent. I then reinstalled the new Ice maker in the reverse order.

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".
