This is a replacement ice maker kit, it is used in the freezer section of your refrigerator. This particular model will produce seven round or crescent shaped cubes every cycle. The ideal temperature of a freezer is zero degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature in your freezer is at an appropriate level and ice is still not being made it could be an issue with the water inlet valve or your ice maker assembly. If you determine it is the ice maker, this is the replacement you need. This kit includes a set of installation instructions, a 4-pin round plug-in connector, 6 post plug-in connector, tube and fill cup. Before you start this repair, you should shut off the water supply and unplug your appliance. Please note, when you have installed your new ice maker it can take up to 24 hours for it to begin producing ice.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Removed old ice maker and control valve. Control valve is in the back of the refrigerator in the bottom corner. Unplug the refridge, turn off water supply valve, remove mounting screw and unplug the control valve from the wiring harness connection. Using a flat screw driver, remove the four water lines (this is the most difficult part). Go inside the freezer and remove the ice maker by loosening the two top screws and removing the bottom screw. Unplug the electrical connection by pulling straight out or use a flat screw driver to pry off. Installation of the new parts is the reverse of the removal. The new ice maker has a pig tail that is necessary to use. This pig tail is longer than the original but will loop up behind the unit and back down to the female plug. Full ice bucket in 48 hours.

I removed the lower screw (not needed for the new icemaker), loosened the 2 top screws, unplugged the wire harness and removed the old icemaker. Unpacked the new icemaker assembly from the box, wiped the ice cube depressions to remove any debris, snapped on the water tube adapter, hung the new assembly on the 2 loosened upper screws and tightened the screws. The wire harness required the supplied pigtail plug which made the wire assembly long and awkward to replace the ice bucket/dispenser assembly, plugged it in and was done. It took a total of about 10 minutes for the entire operation and had a full bin of ice cubes within 36 hours and was ready for the ice dispenser/crusher in the freezer door. Easy install!
Removed the Ice maker from the freezer because the light was not on. Disassembled ice maker, found printed circuit board had shorted across two posts because the board was black in that area. Bought new ice maker assembly, installed in less than five minutes, making Ice fine.
ordered the replacement ice maker. what I received was not an exact fit appication. I had to alter the screw holes for the mounting brackets. I had to use an extension cable (provided) to connect the the fridge. The point where the two cables were connected resulted in a cable that was not only unflexible but too long and I had to alter the ice maker unit to make the cable fit. I am still not completely happy due to the ice maker inconsistancey. Sometimes we have ice sometimes not. In fact, I had to take the whole unit out again today because tow cubes became lodged in the tray and would not allow the tray to fill which resulted in no ice for quite sometime. So, right now I am not too thrilled with the replacement part I received.
Loosened 2 screws unplugged cable. Plugged in cable adapter on new unit. Plugged in to receptical, hung on 2 screws, tightened 2 screws. Done
I ordered the replacement from you guys, got the new ice maker and the plug had an adapter, but it wouldnt fit in with everything. So I cut the plug off my old ice maker and put it on the new one and it works just fine.thanks for everthing P.S. i got the ice maker from you for 109.00 and sears wanted 130.00 for itgood stuff good deal.
My husband took the old icemaker out before the new one came in. When the new one arrived, I installed it in less than 10 minutes.
I had to thaw the icemaker with a heat gun to remove it. Prior to repair, I watched your video of removal and replacement of icemaker. Found everything to be as explained in video. It was not necessary to remove the cover plate below the ice maker, since the electrical connection was visible and available after removing the ice maker. Except for dropped screw, everything went as planned. Presently making ice at a frantic pace.
turn off water. turn off electricity. empty freezer section of frozen food. remove ice bucket. loosen two screws holding IM to wall of refrigerator. lift off icemaker, and then unplug it as you remove it. INSTALL new IM by: putting new water funnel onto new IM. attaching adapter cord to IM. plug in IM electrical cord to refrigerator and then hang the new IM onto the two loosened screws on the refrig wall. Now tighten the two screws. the extra adapter electrical cord hangs below the new IM, but does not get in the way when you reinstall old ice bucket. reload food, turn on elec and water. PS. i had a crack in the casing of the new IM, so i got a new one, but that one was cracked too. so i just installed the second cracked one. hope it is not a problem.
install icemaker water was allways delivered to previous unit water is not being delivered to icemaker still having difficulty
