Icemaker quit making ice, clicking noise coming from lower rear of appliance

If this happens to you the first thing I would do is shut off the freezer and, using a hair dryer, melt the ice in the ice maker and heat up the water inlet to make sure it is not froze up. Turn the freezer back on and wait to see if that cures the problem. If not, order the new water inlet valve and follow the simple instructions in the video provided on the PartSelect website. I have never have a more pleasant experience with any parts/repair service than I did with PartSelect. After ordering that part it came within the time they stated and their help with the install was great. Also helpful were the other customers talking about their problems and solutions.Thanks to PartSelect I now have Ice and a happy wife. Happy wife--happy life.

The bins don't easily snap into place, you have to twist them a little to make them fit into the support nubs. The trick is not to twist them too far or they'll split.Ours do, and now we store half-gallon OJ and milk back where the containers belong.

The new inlet valve came with pisco connectors so had to cut the end of the tubes off. Before doing this I marked all the tubes to make sure they were replaced in the correct order. The pisco connectors are great to use and very quick. The total install time was about 20 to 30 minutes. While you have the back of the frig off make sure you vaccuum the fan and coils. It was making ice in less than 20 minutes.
