This part fixes the following symptoms:
I removed the ice maker from the refrigerator, by removing one screw on the underside bracket and loosening the two screws at the top side, then lifting the ice maker off the loosened screws. I then unplugged the electrical harness that supplies power from the refrigerator to the ice maker. I then disassembled the ice maker by removing the front cover which is snapped in place, then removing two recessed screws at the front. I removed the broken part, I then reassembled the ice maker with the new part. I replaced the two recessed screws at the front and snapped on the cover. Then I reinstalled the ice maker in the refrigator by plugging in the harness, slipping the ice maker over the loosened screws in the refrigerator and replacing the screw that was removed from the underside bracket. Tightening all the screws completed the project.

The tiny piece of plastic that holds the wire that shuts off the icemaker, broke early on with our fridge (after just a few months.) We superglued it, but last week it bit the dust for good.Once I got this part, I removed the freezer door and trays, and pulled the icemaker out by removing 3 flathead screws and unplugging the cables. Laying in the freezer on the floor was a bit unconfortable, but not too bad.Then I inspected the icemaker. There was no obvious way to remove the part without disassembling the front of the unit (where the motor is) to release the spindle and free the part, so I did that - 3 or 4 nuts was all that held it together. Once that was out, I removed the spindle, swapped out the part, and put it all back together and back in the freezer. Plugged it in and waited.It took a while to start making ice. Like 5 hours. Now it's going pretty slow (much slower than before.) Haven't had time to look into it, but my suspicion is the rubber hose that feeds water into the icemaker is blocked with ice or kinked. In any case, we have ice now (but not a lot), and the unit shuts itself off properly. However, we went from having too much ice (thing never shut off) to too little (thing makes ice too slow), so I need to shoot for somewhere in the middle ;)
Removed the screws holding the housing inplace pulled and threw away than went to install the new drive motor but the screws were of a different thread so reinstalled the old motor and put the housing and bucket back together. after thawing out the water fill tube put it back into the cup-water fill and put clamp back in place. system is performing like brand new.
I called the local Amana repair man, wanted $150 for a new ice maker because they could not get the part I needed. Found Partsselect.com and the part cost $17 with shipping. They saved me over $100. The repair was very easy too, just removed a couple of screws.Thanks,Matt
Had to disassemble ice maker to install part. . .
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.
Very easy to order from parts select. Took seconds to replace.
i just took the prts apart and replaced with new part really easy and saved $185.00 easy as pie
The bearing & cup assembly was broken and the gears in the drive assy were stripped. Unfortunately I couldn't find anywhere to buy the gears without buying the entire motor assy with the gear box already on it. Cost was up to $85 with shipping but at least it now works fine. To repair: a 1/4 nut driver will take off screw below ice maker and all you need to do is loosen the 2 screws above the ice maker then push it upward slightly and it will slide off the top 2 screws. Then pull the power connector off from behind the ice maker at the side of the refridge. Then pull straight out and it will slide off the water fill tube. Now with unit out of refridge I took the cover off the front of the ice maker and removed the 3 philip screws. I then pulled the motor/gear assy off from the chassis of the ice maker. I then had to remove the 2 philip screws on the chassis (under the motor/gear assy) to remove the cube maker/element from the chassis. This allowed me to remove the rotating cube spatula bar to replace the filler cup/bearing assy. Then I reinstalled the spatula bar and the 2 philip scews on the chassis to the cube maker/element assy. I then installed the new motor/gear assy to the chassis and installed the 3 remaining philip screws. Put the cover back on the ice maker and inserted assy back into the refridge by first reattaching the power connector and then sliding backward onto the water fill tube and then slipping over the top of the 2 top screws on the refridge. Then I installed the screw below the ice maker and tightened all 3. Presto - repair done in 30 minutes and perfect cubes were spitting out within the hour.
Disconncted power, pulled plug on disconnect, loosened 3 ice maker attach screws, removed ice maker. carefully removed old broken part, to understand reasembly. Reinstalled new water fill & bearing part.. hung icemaker and tightened attach screws. Reattached electrical plug.. turned on power, it all worked. .took about 45 min to remove, 15 min to reinstall. Right tools needed re disassembly AND ASSEMBLY
Our 2nd Ice-maker since 2003. They don't last forever. Intact, the Ice-maker takes 15 minutes to swap out. Broken, we wait for a replacement. Ordered extra Fill Cup. Not needed. Different Part broken this time! Latest Ice-maker has an extended Fill Cup so as not to Freeze up when refilling. Nice! When Trays lose their lining or Unit Freezes up, time to replace it! The Ice-maker should last longer. Maybe we expect too much. We like our ice!
Pried out ice blade bar and removed broken water fill cup and replaced with new one.The whole repair costs $9.52 So I saved $ 190 over the cost of Appliance man visit!It would have been $150& $50 for visit to replace ice maker unit.
To replace the ice enclosure, follow 07/03/09 person's post...it's VERY helpful and pay attention to the part about the "reverse threads"! Be sure to take note how you disassemble, much easier if you write down the order to reverse it in installation.To replace the icemaker, I turned off the water to the icemaker, removed the one screw in the support bracket, popped it out from under the 2 plastic clips, and unplugged the power source. I unplugged the wires from the old icemaker and plugged them into (and clipped the one wire under the clip) the new icemaker exactly like it was on the old one. I took the "shutoff" wire (the thing that turns off the icemaker when the ice bucket is full) from the old icemaker and put it on the new one. Ready to install! I made sure the "water hose" was in the hole , plugged it in, popped it in under the plastic clips on the side of the freezer, and screwed the bottom screw in the support bracket. Shut the door! Turn on the water, and go see what else you can order and fix! Easiest fridge I've EVER HAD!!! Oh, and I replaced the actuator pad, too - another super easy feat! Slide the drip tray out, use the "star tool screwdriver" to remove the screws, remove the "face", follow the instructions given previous to mine, it's easy as pie. I'm a 52 year old WOMAN and if I can do this, YOU CAN TOO!
