This part fixes the following symptoms:
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
I played the install video a couple of times to assure myself that it was that easy. The video indicated that I actually had to remove the ice maker it install the motor module but in my case I did not really have to. I simply pulled off the plastic cover plate, removed the 3 phillips head screws and exhanged the new module for the old one. I turned the power and water back on and waited for something to happen...nothing did! After about 15 minutes and no noticeable electric or water flow activity I pulled the refrigerator out away from the wall to check the incoming water line and suddenly I heard water flow to the icemaker and within the next hour I had my 1st batch of cubes. Since then everything appears to be working and we have ice cubes for Christmas. All in all it was a pretty easy and inexpensive fix and probably saved me well over a $100.
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
