The repair was simple. I first did a diagnosis of the optical cuircuits and found them good. The tray heated up and when resetting the moor controller, the water cyccled to fill the tray so the only other thing it could be was the motor controller.removed the service door for the ice makerI removed the wire protectore screw and shroudpulled the icemaker unit out and unplugged the unitremoved the motor controller end capunscrewed 3 screws holding the motor controllerremoved and replaced the motor controller. ensured that all wire harness connector poiints were solidreverse the above instructions and in 5 hours I was getting ice again!$90 turned out to be a savings from the $250 it would have cost to have someone come out and look at the fridge.I highly recommend to anyone who can read and use a screwdriver to perform this repair if you have diagnosed this as the root of your problem!

Repair was real easy, I had to remove several screws in the bottom of the icemaker module housing. The unit slide out with no problem there was a wire assembly that hat to be disconnected but this did not present a problem. The old module came out real easy after removing 4 screws and the replacement was not a problem to but in.
I removed the icemaker. One screw at the bottom and then unplug the electric. Remove the old motor from the face that has 3 screws holding it. Put the new motor in. A very simple job. I now have a full ice bin by the next morning.
I Removed 3 screws, pulled off the plate and put the new one on, screwed in 3 screws and away I went. I could not believe how easy it was to order the part and how quickly it arrived. I was very pleased. And I was literally screaming with excitement when I heard the first set of ice cubes drop!
I had to order the module. It was easy to install. If i could have ordered just the gear and shaft, would have been a lot cheaper. Thanks for the addvise. Bill Paisley
Removed the control and motor assembly by removing the plastic cover and three screws. Shut off the power to the refrigerator while removing the control and motor assembly (and also when installing the new one). Tested the motor using an AC power cord. The motor had apparently failed. Ordered the repair part and installed it taking care that the motor drive shaft and shut off arm were correctly aligned. The icemaker began to work properly when power was restored. The cost of this repair was about half the cost of replacing the entire icemaker.
followed instructions provided when ordering part
I removed the cover to assembly ,3 screws and it came right off. points were wore out. Thank you for a prompt delivery. It was delivered much faster then I expected.Paul First time dealing with you ,thanks
Installed new motor control
replaced icemaker motor.easy peasy
I determined that the plastic lever inside the icemaker was broken and I found the part easaly. It was farelly inexpensive considering the important job the ice maker does, so I order it and paid for the standard, 5-8 days delivery. To my surprise, it was delivered (to my neighbors house thanks to the delivery person) the next day. Once Berry the neighbor delivered it to my house, 15 minutes later ice was being made. I had to remove one screw and losen two on top of the icemaker, disconnect power and remove the icemaker. I don't think that this step was even required but I wanted to remove all of the old ice from the maker without thawing out the freezer. Replacing the part itself also required removal of three screws. I think that almost anyone can do this easily (with or without Berry).

Open the icemaker service, door slide it out, remove wiring, remove ice maker control cover,remove 3screw, put new one in, put everything back together and with in 6 hours we have ice again. PS my husband did it though.
Unplugged the refrigerator. No need to remove the entire icemaker (IM). Removed the old module by taking out the 3 screws and carefully wiggling it free from the icemaker. Lined up the blade arm with the new module, pushed the module onto the IM and put in the 3 screws. Lowered the shut off arm and plugged in the refrigerator. Once the freezer compartment reached the proper temperature, the IM began making ice with no further problems.
After reading the stories on your site, I figured it had to be the motor control. Easy to take off, but had to take the tray off the freezer wall to get the ice out. Once I did that it was a piece of cake. Now I have ice (and vodka tonics...).
