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.
A friend had no problem getting the new ice maker in. But then the problems started. The ice maker works great. But when the water fills the ice maker it squirts water onto the side of the freezer and ice sickles form. So we watched and decided the hole was too large so used a piece of plastic. That helped to cover the hole. But some water is still entering the freezer and not all going to the ice maker. The only other thing we can think to try is to use epoxy to try to close that place. A simple job has turned into a big headache. I wish they made the ice maker like the original one.
install icemaker water was allways delivered to previous unit water is not being delivered to icemaker still having difficulty
