Just had shoulder surgery so had to use one arm. Was simple and easy. Just took out ice tray, loosed two fasteners at top, removed screw from bottom, pulled out partialy and disconected electric and removed old icemaker. Hooked up new electric and hung on two top fasteners, reinstalled bottom screw, tightened top fasteners and put ice tray back in. Was making ice within a couple of hours.
followed the video instructions on the PartSelect website. No problem. Ice in about 2 hours! tnx
I ordered a new ice maker and replaced it. It hung on two screws in the side of freezer and connected to the electric in back by a plug in unit. Within 20 minutes we were making ice again. Awesome!!
There are 3 screws the one on the bottom comes all the way out, the 2 on top just need to be loosened. Lift up on the ice maker to clear screws, pull away a little bit then while holding disconnect the wire harness from the ice maker by pushing down the locking tab with a flat head screw driver. Then reversed the process with the new one, it took an hour or so but the ice started falling, a day later the bucket was full.
The teflon coating on the ice maker had worn off in a section. This was causing the cubes to stick and the tray heater to have to run longer. Which meant that water would accumulate in the tray over several cycles, eventually spilling over on a fill. The hardest part about replacing the ice maker was getting the plug disconnected. I had to use a small screw driver to push the tab that latches it down while pulling the plug out. You only have to completly remove the lower mounting screw. The top two just need to be loosened enough to remove the ice maker.
Unplugged the fridge. Took the old icemaker out by loosening 2 screws on top of it with a nut driver, and removed one phillips screw from the bottom, then lifting the ice maker off the upper screws. Unplugged the ice maker from the plug at the back wall. Took the cover of the front of the ice maker and looked up the replacement part number. Ordered the part Monday, and it arrived in Thursday. It was exactly the same. Connected up the electrical connector, hung the ice maker on the top two screws, installed the bottom screw, and tightened the top two screws with the nut driver. It was making ice in a couple of hours.
Look at several YouTube videos on removal of same or similar units and that will help. Clear out the area in the freezer above the ice maker and removed the shelf. Removed the ice bucket. Remove the single screw attaching the bottom of the old ice maker to the left freezer wall. Loosen the two screws at the top of the old ice maker holding it to the left freezer wall. Loosen and removed the old ice maker. If the electrical cable from the freezer rear to the old ice maker was not easily removed from the freezer, remove it from the old ice maker using a screwdriver. Loosen the clamp attaching the cable to the old ice maker for temperature sensing and remove the old ice maker. Then do all the steps in reverse for the new ice maker, taking care to insure that the cable was firmly seated in the connector and the temperature sensing clamp closed tightly (hand pressure). The hardest part is positioning and replacing the bottom screw attaching the new ice maker to the left freezer wall; this involves a little jiggering to get it correctly positioned and seated. All else went well. It's been over three weeks and the unit works great. I did not need to use the cable supplied with the replacement ice maker, so I discarded it.
unhooking elec. connection on old ice maker was hardest part, everyone said to push in tab with a screw driver while pulling connector apart, not on mine, as soon as I pried tab up it came right off.
This is a very straightforward repair. You will need a 1/4 inch nut driver to complete it. First - unplug your refrigerator. Second - remove the ice bin and any shelves that may get in your way. Next - remove the 3 screws that hold the ice maker to the freezer wall, being careful to support the ice maker while you unplug the wiring harness from the freezer. If necessary, remove the wire bail from the old ice maker and reinstall it on the new one. Plug in the new ice maker and attach it with the 3 screws. Remove the plastic cover from the front of the old ice maker and install it on the new one. Finally - reinstall the ice bin and any shelves you removed, plug in the refrigerator and you are done. Congratulations on a successful appliance repair!
I replaced the old with the new one in about three minutes. And it started working right away. I priced a relacement icemaker in a appliance part store and it cost $50.00 more than partselect
when I found out that the icemaker was not functioning,I took it off and check the part in partselect.com.I placed my order after 3 days the part came and I immediately installed it in less than 15min & overnight in the morning the ice receptacle is full of ice ,thanks
I removed the old ice maker by unscrewing the three screws and unpluging the plug from in the back of the freezer. Then I just pluded the new ice maker in and screwed the ice maker back into place. and with in a hour it was making ice. The repair was so easy. My wife called around to the appliance repair store and the same part would of cost us twice as much. Delivery of the part was here the next day. What a wonderful company.
Pretty easy to replace, once you find the screws. One of them you can see on the bottom. The other two you have to feel for. Completely remove the screw on the bottom, that you can see and then loosen the two you have to feel for. Once everything is loosened, left the icemaker up and it will come free. Move it out and unplug the power cord. Make sure the power is off before you start this project. Use a small flat screwdriver to hold down the tab so the power cord will detach. Reverse the steps to install the new one.
