This part fixes the following symptoms:
Very simple repair. First Remove ice tray. Next remove enclosure. Believe there were 3 screws to remove enclosure (1 bottom, 2 top). Slide enclosure out slowly to gain access to power connector mounted on back wall. removed components from enclosure (motor and solenoid). Take extra care removing solenoid with spring/rod as it is 3 separate pieces (spring, rod, and coil). Easy to figure out reassemble but easier if you take note during disassembly. Took me a while to get yoke off from motor assmbly. noticed they were reverse threads (lefty). So to remove yoke from shaft had to turn CW vs CCW on regular threads. Once had yoke off, rest of assembly was easy. Mounted motor, reinstalled yoke. Put entire re-assembled enclosure back in fridge. Slide in part way, to give yourself plenty of room to plug power connector in. Reattach assembly with 3 screws. Works like a champ.

As the previous users have stated, remove the ice tray, then remove the ice bin enclosure. Watch for the screws that are used to mount the enclosure.As you slide the enclosure forward, go slowly, there is a wiring connector at the back, you will need to un-plug this connector. The solenoid assy is kind of tricky, as it is spring loaded, but easy to figure out. As previously mentioned, the auger yoke is on a shaft that has to be removed by turning it clockwise (reverse threads). Be careful with that, as it is hard to hold on to the shaft while getting the yoke off. Now remount the motor, remount the spring loaded solenoid assy, slide the ice bin enclosure back in a ways, then reconnect the wiring harness, slide it the rest of the way in, tighten the screws, and you are ready to make ice again. Approx 30 minute job.
getting it apart wasn't to bad. except when the small part that functions with the door flap fell out before i could see how it was installed orginally. after a few moments of trail and error figuired it out. previous messages you had posted from other customers helped alot, especially the gentleman who said screws were left handed made a big differance in getting it apart. glad you had the part.works great.
The plastic around the the drive motor on the ice enclosure fatigued and broke. Couple if screws and the whole thing came. Replacement was easy, one screw under the rail of the ice enclosure, then it slides out. Swap the parts and reinstall.
The ice enclosure was broken where the element is attached to the enclosure. There was some ice buildup in the ice bin and looks as if the auger got bound up and twisted the element attachment until it broke the housing of the enclosure. We got on line and fround the part at PartSelect. The selection process was very easy since PartSelect had all the parts pictured and described. We ordered the part first thing on a Monday morning and received the part Tuesday morning. We are very inpressed with the company and the fast service in receiving the part. Thank you. If the need arises we will order from you again and recommend you to friends.
First I removed the ice holder. Then I took the screw out of the side of the encloser, and pulled it out just a little and reached back and unplugged the harness. I had to remove the u-shaped piece off the little motor before it would go onto the new one. It was all very simple.
Took my husband and son to remove the auger because it seemed to be frozen somewhat. After a little work, the auger broke loose and the repair was a quick process. I thoroughly enjoy the fact that the part was correct and I my ice maker was fixed for very little money and I did not have to buy a new refrigerator! I was not sure that we could get the replacement part because we are not the original owner of the refrigerator. So it has some age, but still works strong!
the drive motor was broken free from the tray, so I just changed it over and replaced the drive ring very esay for me
First I removed the ice hopper, then I removed one 1/4 inch self tapper, then I removed six screws holding the motor ann solenoid. I then unplugged the wiring harness, the ice enclosure then pulled right out. I set the new one in place refastened the motor and solenoid, plugged the wiring harness in and put the self tapper back in and I was making ice.
My son-in-law is our handyman. He diagnosed the problem, found us the part and then put it in. The part came several days before we expected it and the whole thing went very well and we saved lots of money!
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!
Remove 2 screws, and GENTLY remove tray. There are two motors on the back side that are wired in to the back of the fridge. Unplug the harness and the whole assembly will come out. Take note of the way the plunger comes out, if not, it will take a little more time to figure out. reassemble motors onto new tray then GENTLY slide into postion, with one hand plug in wiring harness then seat tray into position and reinstall screws. Done.
