The icemaker control assembly is located in the freezer section of your refrigerator. It is what controls the icemaker. The control turns the timing cams and the ejector blades. It controls most of the basic parts and functions, such as the heater, the water inlet valve, the cube size, and cube ejection. This replacement includes the control module and the motor, the motor is not sold separately. There are a number of reasons you might need to replace this part: if the motor is faulty, if any of the gears are worn out, or any of the plastic pieces are broken or damaged. If your icemaker is not functioning properly, you should start by testing this module. Before you begin repairing your refrigerator, make sure it is unplugged.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First I did the diagnostics and thought the water valve wasn't functioning so I replaced that, but it still didn't make ice. So I went on line and found the first thing to fix should have been the module and motor assembly. It was a real easy fix because I had pulled the ice maker before to investigate what was wrong. I just removed one screw and disconnected the electrical. There were four screws holding the motor assembly on. So I put the new motor on and had ice in 30 mnutes.

Unplugged the frig., removed three screws, pulled the motor out, then slid the new motor in. Within a few hours I had ice again. The only problem was I felt the motor was still hooked to something after I took out the screws. Just be firm and pull it out, the pressure you feel is the thin bar that slides into the back of it to monitor the level of ice in the tray. It was REALLY easy.
First I disconnected the refrigerator. I snapped off the service door. taped closed the auto.door shut off located on the left side wall. the unit just pulled out,disconnecting the power source, removed the plastic cover, unscrewed (3) screws and reattached the new unit . i reconnected the process in reverse. if i had repairman do this it would have cost twice as much .
First I replaced the thermostat. (from this company.) Same thing happened. Then I thought the ice heater has too low voltage and does not melt it for extraction. So, I put a short on the relay on the beam receiver board. No difference. Then completely disassembled the ice maker, and discovered the shaft cracked on the plastic gear, which rotates the ice extractor. So, I ordered and received this control assembly. Put together the unit and having ice again. Due to the cracked gear the thing was out of timing. This gear drives the contactor for letting water in, freezing time, heating the ice, (so it slides out easily), etc
The ice maker had quit before and I fixed it by taking it out to thaw.When it quit working the second time thawing it out didn't do the trick.The dispenser still worked so we were buying bagged ice. The dispenser lever fell apart and my wife said fix them both or "I'm calling a repairman." My in-laws recently had a bad experience with an appliance repair service and my motto is that "if it's already broke I can't hurt it anymore" Found the Parts Select site and started reading everyone instructions. During the summer,our electricity had went off several times,so I figured that the icemaker control and motor assembly was the problem. Watched the installation video,and followed the instructions. Used parts diagrams and super glue to piece dispenser lever back together. Wife is happy and we saved $
Change motor on icemaker by taking the screw out the bottom ice tray so it will slide out once I remove the I took door off the icemaker it pops off. And follow the instructons for shower
Followed video lnstructions which were very good. Have used your web site in the past and will continue to purchase products. Thanks.

sears wanted $450 to replace ice maker or $400 for refubished. I ordered a $60 motor/control unit from parts select. Remove ice maker, remove motor cover, three screws replace and ice within the hour.
Removed 4 screws, pulled unit out of slots, unpluged control wires plug and removed from fridg. Removed 3 screws that hold the motor module to unit. Then reversed procedure and had the batch of ice cubes one hour and fifteen minutes from the time I started replacement.
remove the wiring cover, pulled out the ice maker shelf, unpluged the wiring. Once out I removed the control module cover and remove 3 screws and pulled out the old control module. I pushed on the new control module and reattached the 3 screws, attached the module cover and plugged wiring in, slide back into the freezer track, installed wiring cover and screw- 15 minuits tops
3 Years ago our icemaker stopped working and we paid a professional $225.00 to come and repair. This time I chose to investigate the problem on line and PartSelect website gave me info on the motor assembly that may be the problem. Sure enough I purchased the part, it was delivered in two days. My husband installed the control & motor assembly in less than 15 minutes. We had ice within hours. Thanks for saving us a service call and the expense. The Goldbergs
