I'm a pretty handy guy. I can usually figure out how to fix most things. We have an extended warranty for most of our appliances but the refrigerator was somehow over looked. After reviewing the info package that come with the refrigerator I realized I was pretty much on my own. I went on the Internet and was lucky to find the Partselect site. It was great and easy to navigate!!! I love the virtual repairman and the section that gives percents of probability of what the problem may be. I ordered the part, received it the next day and had it repaired in minutes. Just watch the virtual repairman and do what he says..it couldn't have been simpler The whole process (ordering to shipping to installation) was extremely easy. If I ever need parts for any appliance again I will go to Partselect!!!!!!!!!
I want everyone to know that the ice maker for my sub zero was no longer available.It is a 1994 refrigator. I searched your web site and found something that looked very similiar.It turned out to be an exact replacement.If anyone needs the entire ice maker, they will have to change the electrical connection on the unit.To remove the ice maker unit,first remove the feeezer draw. It comes out the same way you would remove a kitchen draw from the cabinet.Unplug the ice maker,and remove the 3 screws.Then remove the 3 screws from the front of the ice maker.Reverse the process to re-install.
I watched the video of how to do it. I removed old one and I installed new one as per video. It took less than 15 mins. EASY !!!!!!!
Remove ice maker from side wall of freezer. Not alot of room to see the fasteners because the unit is a side by side. Overall pretty easy fix and saved alot of money instead of calling in repair man.
Refrigerator is 4 year old. Icemaker quite working after about a year. Called a repair man that fixed it for about $300. Unfortunately, it quit working again after a year. Found the PartSelect website and read the other repair stories so I decided to take a shot at doing it myself. Man am I glad I did.The repair stories were very helpful. I thought the problem would either be the motor or the optical sensor so I purchased both. I decided to replace the optical sensor first since the LED light was flashing. I unplugged the refrigerator and removed the three screws holding the plastic cover plates on the left and right side of the freezer. Unplugged the wire harnesses and plugged into the new boards. Replaced the screws and in a couple minutes I heard the icemaker fill with water. 30 minutes later we had ice. Using PartSelect saved me $200. I will definitely use PartSelect in the future.
First I removed the cover over the motor assembliy,then took out the three phillips screws holding the assembily, then unpluged it. then I pluged the new unit in holding the shut off bar( for when the ice tray is full) in place. then put the three screws back in, pluged the fridge in and the ice maker started working. I put the cover back on and the job was complete. this was a very easy fix.
The first step is to turn the icemaker switch (located inside the freezer) off. Then, I removed a single nut to the right rear of the icemaker unit and loosened the clips that hold the unit in position (one clip on each side). Next, I disconnected the wires (you have to hold the clip open to pull them apart).Once the unit was out, I removed the old motor module by removing the three screws that hold it in place. I installed the new motor module, and then reconnected the wires and put the unit back in the freezer. One nut to hold the unit in place, and turn the icemaker switch back on.
Easy repair. This fridge is only two years old and the ice maker has already failed. Compared to the 15 year old fridge it replaced which still had a working ice maker. Thanks, Part Select
1) Remove 2 screws holding the coverplate in front of the icemaker. 2) Remove 1 screw at the lower right-rear of the icemaker unit to free the plastic electrical connector cover. 3) Pry the connector cover to the rear (it's flexible plastic, so this can be done with finger pressure alone). 4)Slide the icemaker unit forward (a bit of wiggling the unit is required here to get it at an angle where it will clear its mounting tracks). 5) Disconnect the electrical connector (depress the plastic tab on the side of the connector with your right hand while holding the unit with your left). That's all that's required to get the icemaker out of the freezer and onto a bench. 6) Pry off the plastic cover (left side of the unit) over the motor assembly housing. 7) Examine the circuitry for corrosion/oxidation. (The external circuitry is made of approx. 1/8" copper strips set into channels in the plastic motor assembly housing, which, over time, can corrode to become non-conducting blue copper oxide powder.) Also, inspect the contact points for the heater element and sensors in the motor (same potential problem). 8) Remove the 3 screws attaching the motor assembly to the icemaker unit. 9) Go to PartSelect.com and enter the make & model number of your refrigerator, then select a new motor assembly. (Compare the picture to your motor assembly to make sure you have the right one. Also, print out the exploded diagram of the icemaker unit - useful for reassembly and for future repairs.) Reinstall in reverse order of the above. Total repair cost = approx. $63.00 (motor assembly) + $7.00 (S&H) = $70. Performing a major appliance repair for $70 is a VERY good deal. If you call a repairman, you are going to pay THROUGH THE NOSE (i.e., $100's). DIY forever!
No water going into the ice tray. I unplugged the water valve solenoid at the bottom of the refrigerator in the back left corner, checked continuity on both. All showed resistance across the contacts so I believed the water inlet valves were at least not blown. The only other electronic component of the ice maker is the control board with the motor and then the thermostat. I purchased both. Also, make sure you buy the Aluminastic cement. It is the thermal contact point between the face of the thermostat and the ice tray. Expensive as heck, but unfortunately necessary. PartSelect should offer a very small tube for a small cost rather than a huge tube that you will never use for $27. Anyway, I put both the control board and thermostat in and an hour later was making ice again. Total cost was just over $100 for everything including shipping. I must say that PartSelect delivers fast and everything was exactly what I ordered, so the service is excellent and the website is excellent.
I read all these other stories at this site describing the same problem I was having with my ice maker. So I ordered the same part. I used a nut driver to remove the ice maker unit from the freezer compartment. Used a screwdriver to remove the motor assembly, then just put the new one on. The hardest part was getting the on/off bar back on the new assembly, but that wasn,t that bad. Turned it on and checked back in fifteen minutes to find water in the trough!I think what quit working was the heat element that warms the ice enough for the paddles to pry the ice pieces from the trough. And then that may have ruined the gears. This is just my best guess from what I observed originally.GREAT WEB SITE! I saved a lot of money. I'll definitely remember you guys.
