The icemaker shut off arm, used in a refrigerator, gives the icemaker a signal to stop making ice once the bin has a reached a certain limit. This helps monitor ice production. If your icemaker is not making ice properly or consistently, replacing this part could be a solution to your problem. The tools required for this installation are a 1/4 inch nut driver, a Phillips screwdriver, and needle nose pliers. Refer to the manual guide provided by the manufacturer for further guidance and instructions. Remember to safely store food when the refrigerator power is off to keep it from deteriorating.

This part fixes the following symptoms:
Pantry Cover: I just slided out the tray, and unscrewed the left pantry panel that was broken, and replaced it with the new one, then put in the new cover after sliding the trays back in.Ice Maker:I unplugged the power connector in the back, unscrewed the ice maker with a flat screw driver (3 screws), slide it out, and then unplugged the wiring from the old ice maker and put it into the new one, mounted the new ice maker back in, make sure the lever is working, and then closed the freezer to let it cool down so that water can start flowing to it when it becomes cold enough (took about a good hour or so before water started filling the ice maker). Once the freezer was cold enough, water started filling the ice maker, and it begin making ice again.

I have never used the ice maker because I have a well and didn't want to usewell water to make ice. I usually make ice with bottled water. I decided to try making ice with gravity fed water from a converted water fountain placed on a higher level than the refrigerator, locater in my garage next to the kitchen. When I looked at the rear of the frig. I saw a copper pipe (on the bottom of the frig.) that lead to a valve, with a plastic tube that went to the freezer. I didn't think that the gravity fed water could go down to the bottom and return to the freezer at the top, so I cut the plastic tube, and fed the water directly to the ice maker.I only put a small amount of water in my water source because I wasn't shure what would happen. The water filled the tray and the rest of the water went to the container that catches the ice. I did get one tray of ice. I later found that the valve that the copper pipe went to, has a 7 minute timer that only allows a small amount of water to pass.My next effort will be to connect to the copper pipe and see if it will allow the gravity fed water to rise to the ice maker. Wish me luck
The repair was incredibly easy. More importantly the service and speed of delivery was way beyond expectations. What a great company!
