Ice maker broke at the begining of summer !!!!!!

The new Ice Maker Assembly arived in less than 24 hours. I was amazed that it came so fast.

I had already removed the old ice maker in order to get the modle number.

I just took two parts off of the old ice maker and quickly snapped them into place on the new ice maker. Then attached it to the refrigerator in less than 10 minutes. With in a few hours I had ice again !!!!!

I would definatly use partselect.com again.

Ice maker making large block of ice, level broken, pantry cover broken

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.

The ice cubes would dump before frozen

FIRST PULL THE ICE BIN FROM THE FREEZER.
THEN REMOVE ONE SCREW THAT HOLDS THE ICE MAKER IN PLACE. ROTATE THE ICE MAKER TO THE RIGHT AND UP TO RELEASE FROM POSTS ON WALL OF FREEZER. USE A FLAT BLADE SCREWDRIVER AT THE FRONT BOTTOM OF THE WHITE COVER TO PRY THE WHITE COVER FROM THE ICE MAKER BODY. USE TEH FLAT BLAD SCREW DRIVER TO RELEASE THE CLIP HOLDING THE WIRES TO THE ICE MAKER. REMOVE A METAL CLIP FROM THE WATER RECEIVER AND TRANSFER TO THE NEW ICEMAKER. TRANSFER THE ICE SENSING BAIL TO THE NEW ICE MAKER. INSTALL WIRES, FRONT COVER, HANG ON POSTS AND REINSTALL SCREW TO SECURE TO FREEZER WALL.
ACTUATOR PAD REQUIRES YOU TO FIRST REMOVE PLASTIC COVER OVER THE TOP HINGE OF THE FREEZER DOOR. YOU MUST UNPLUG THE WIRE CONNECTOR TO PREVENT SHORTING OUT THE PRINTED WIRING BOARDS LOCATED BEHIND THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY. THEN REMOVE TWO SCREWS AND FROM THE BOTTOM CAREFULLY SEPARATE THE DISPENSER FROM THE DOOR. THE WIRES ARE NOT VERY LONG SO DON'T JUST YANK IT OUT. THE PAD IS EASILY REMOVED AND THE NEW PAD WORKED INTO PLACE. REINSTALL THE DISPENSER INTO THE DOOR, RECONNECT THE WIRES AND REINSTALL THE COVER AND YOU ARE FINISHED.

Ice maker leaked water

Overall, replacing the ice maker wasn't too bad but it wasn't nearly as easy for me as it seems to have been for some. In my case, the fridge was an Amana and the ice maker was mounted in such a way that disconnecting the power connector was difficult. The ice maker had to be completely dismounted before any access to the power connector was even possible. The short power cables made it very difficult to get the ice maker into a position where I had a good view of the power connector enabling me to see how to release it. The only other challenge was the cup that the water line goes into. The replacement ice maker did not come with the right cup - the instructions said to replace the provided one with the old one. No instructions for this procedure were provided and it looked to me like it might involve significant disassembly, something I wanted to avoid for fear of breaking a plastic part on the new ice maker (something I had already done when disassembling the old ice maker). So instead of replacing the cup, I modified the new one to match the old one. This involved removing a cutout on one side and covering a hole on the other. Installation of the new ice maker went fine and the water leak problem was fixed.

The ice maker stopped making ice.

I did a few tests with the old ice maker and determined that it was the ice maker itself that was faulty. The replacement part I ordered exceeded my expectations in the time it took to get the part. I reused the arm, wire harness and clamps from the old icemaker. Then it was a simple install into the bottom freezer compartment, turning on the water supply and bingo...lots of ice cubes.

Ice maker eitehr wouldn't make ice, or made odd shaped cubes

First, I shut off the water going to the refrigerator, then removed the ice bin. Then I loosened the two screws on the top of the ice maker (the one toward the front was a little tricky, since you can't see it at all), then removed the screw that fastens the lower bracket to the side of the frig. Then I lifted up on it slightly to remove it from the two upper screws, then unplugged the wiring harness from the side of the refrigerator and lifted the whole unit out of the frig.

I then removed the plastic cover on the front of the ice maker, pressed on the tab to remove the wiring harness from the old ice maker, and installed it on the new ice maker. I then removed the metal arm from the old ice maker and installed it on the new unit as well. The last part that I moved from the old ice maker to the new one was the lower bracket, as the bracket on the new ice maker was bent during shipping.

Once those parts were swapped, I put the plastic cover on the new ice maker, plugged the wiring harness back into the side of the frig, routed the fill tube into the back on the ice maker assembly, and set the unit back on the two upper screws. I then put the screw back in the lower bracket, tightened the two upper screws, and then put the ice bin back in and turned the water back on. After a couple of hours, I threw out the first couple of batches of ice and it is now working as it had in the past.

I also noticed, when looking at the old ice maker, that the black plastic coating was coming off the ice cube tray, so it was a good time to be replacing it anyway. Overall, a very easy job (I was prepared for swearing, parts being slightly off, etc.) and it would have been a shame to have paid someone to do it.

Ice maker just stopped making ice

This was the third icemaker replaced since January 1999. Improvement need to be made in the design of the icemaker so that more than 2-3 years of life is available.
The most difficult part was disconnecting the power plug in the back of the icemaker. You must squeeze the upper and lower tabs together and pull out at the same time to disconnect. Once this is done, take out one nut head screw, lift up on the icemaker and remove from the hanger. Be careful that you don't break the plastic tabs on the hangers. Replace new icemaker in reverse, feed water supply where it must go in the back, resnap onto hangers, replace the nut head screw and snap in the power plug. It took about 2 hours before the icemaker began making ice. It has been working fine ever since. PS. I saved about $200.00 over having a repairman come in and replace the unit.

Icemaker not making ice

For the icemaker, I removed the ice tray and loosesned the two attaching screws(1/4"). I removed the lower bracket and then removed the ice dispenser motor cover below the ice maker. This made it easier to remove the wiring harness. After removing the icemaker from the refrigerator, I swapped out the wiring harness and ice detector bracket (wire bail that swings). Hooked things back up and went on to the water valve. All in all about 15 minutes and pretty easy.
For the ice valve, you must turn off the water supply, disconnect the power plug and move the refrigerator away from the wall. (Now's a good time to clean out under and behind the unit!) Remove the valve from the base with the 1/4" nut driver. Remove the inlet line(standard hose fitting).Have a sponge handy. Remove and replace the new valve in the bracket by popping the clip off and on the new one. Replace one outlet line and electrical connection at a time (easier to keep track of). Replace unit on base and check for leaks before replacing refrigerator. Other than cleaning, the task took about 20 min. and was simple. The cleaning, on the other hand...

Ice maker tray would overfill tray and create large clumps of ice.

Repair Refrigerator Kick Plate Grill:
No tools were required. I removed old grill with hands. I attached two clips to new grill, and re-installed the new grill. (less than 5 minutes very easy)

Repair Crushed Ice Bucket:
You will need sockets or nut driver. Remove the Ice crusher dispenser and metal rod from the existing unit. You will then re-install with the new Ice Bucket. There were two scews that held the front cover. You will need to remove four screws to remove the ice crusher mechanism and re-install with new bucket. (10 minutes to replace)

Repair Ice Maker Assembly:
I removed the plastic cap on the top left edged of the ice maker. You will need to use your existing cap with the replacement unit. I then loosened the top two screws on the ice maker assembly. You do not need to remove the top two screws. There is one screw on the bottom that will need to be removed. This will allow you to get to the wiring harness. I pulled out the white tube that fills the ice maker with water. I then used a small bucket to pour existing water out of the ice maker. I used a small screw driver to depess the clip on the wiring harness. You can not pull out the wiring harnes unless the plastic clip is depressed. The new ice maker assembly did not have the same type of water line attachment. It looks like it is made for different assemblys. For my water tube, I noticed a notched area on the new unit that could be cut out to work like my existing unit did for the water line. I used a box knife to cut out the notched area. On the new water tray, there was a hole in the side that my existing unit did not have. It does not affect the installation of the water tube. I installed the new ice maker assembly by attaching the wiring harness. Installed the bottom screw using my original bracket instead of the new bracket that came with the new unit. Tightened the top screws and bottom screw. Attached the water tube to the ice maker assembly. Attached plastic cap between the refrigerator wall and left side of the ice maker assembly. (15 minutes)
