The ice maker ensures your refrigerator generates and dispenses ice. There may be an issue with yours if it leaks water, generates too much or too little ice, or dispenses too much or too little ice. Click play on the video below for step by step instructions on how to replace your ice maker.
NOTE: Ice maker does NOT come with the bail or shut off arm. You must order them separately if required. It does come complete with flat and round plug wiring harness, the mounting hardware, and the instructions. The harness can be reused. The ice maker will not fit refrigerators that have the ice auger mounted on the door.
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:
This is a shut off arm for the ice maker in a refrigerator. When the shut off arm has reached maximum height, it triggers the switch to shut off the ice maker so it does not continue to make ice until the level of ice in the ice bucket begins to drop. The ice maker can also be shut off by lifting the shut off arm past the maximum height and into the locked position. This part is made of metal, and measures approximately 9 inches wide and 4 inches tall. This is an OEM replacement part.
When the icemaker shut off arm is high enough the icemaker will shut off and no more ice will be made until the level of ice in the bin drops. Also, the icemaker can be turned off by lifting the arm all the way to the top until in a locked position. If your icemaker is dispensing too much ice or is not making enough ice, you may have to replace the icemaker shut off arm. This part is made of white plastic and metal. This icemaker shut off arm may differ in design from your previous part. However, the part will still perform the same function.

At age 65 I have never attempted to repair a refrigerator, until now. It took longer than needed because I did not read these articles carefully. Please note that when you open the door and the light blinks twice, waits a second and blinks again, the optics are working fine. I ordered an emitter and receiver when I didn't need to. I sent it back, the money was refunded, and ordered the ice maker. I replaced the old icemaker by removing three screws and slipping it out of its holder.Here is how I found out I needed the new ice maker. I took the supply line apart that runs down the back of the refrigerator. I blew through it without any trouble. This told me that the line was not frozen within the refrigerator. I put the supply line back together, and jumped the solenoid that was connected to the supply line at the bottom right of the refrigerator. My model is the side by side, so it has two solenoids. The solenoid that runs the water to the dispenser in the door was always running, so I knew if there was a problem it would be with the ice maker solenoid. So, how did I jump the solenoid. Kids, don't try this at home. I disconnected the wiring harness to the solenoid by pulling it straight out. Then I took the female end of an extension chord and placed a twelve two electrical wire with the ends stripped into the positive and negative slots. I then jumped the solenoid. Water ran to the ice maker, but there still wasn't any ice made. Since the optics and the solenoid were working it seemed to me that the ice maker wasn't doing it's part. There are easier ways to check the solenoid in this forum, but this worked for me. I saved a lot of money and the parts got here quickly.
I noticed the coating inside the ice maker, the lining on the surface that the water contacts when making ice, was chipping off. I replaced the ice maker with a new unit and now there's no more bits of stuff in my ice. The other problem I had was the ice bin, it had picked up a weird smell over the years and I wanted to replace it. The new bin seems flimsier, but works fine. It didn't have the top attachment hole for the ice auger mechanism drilled out for some reason, it had a little "bump" in the plastic where it should be, but was never drilled out. Easy enough, I drilled the hole out and attached that top screw without any issue.
The on-line video and the hard-copy instructions with the replacement part made it very easy. Just loosened the 2 upper screws and took out the bottom one. Eased the ice maker out a bit and disconnected the plug at the back (power was off). Checked the replacement part had exactly the same wiring harness - it did. Fitted the bail arm from the old one. So simply did the same process in reverse. So 15-20 minutes after I started, the job was compelete. It takes a while for ice to start coming, but it did, and after 24 hours I threw out the ice and started again to make sure the ice came from fresh water.
pulled out a couple scews, unplugged wiring harness, pulled out old ice maker.took new ice maker plugged in wiring harnesstightened down screws. had clean ice in 2 hours!
After checking all connections I determined the ice maker which had been replaced on 01/2007 stopped making ice. I had serviceman from a local company return and check the ice maker. He rinsed the ice maker under warm water, melting the ice build-up and re-installed the ice maker. I watched him do the re-installation, then waited for two days to see if the ice maker was functioning. Since the ice maker wasn't working, I called the serviceman, who in turn informed me that the replacement ice maker had increased in price from $170.00 to $274.00. That is when I contacted your web site, ordered the replacement ice maker.I was totally amazed and pleased by the fast, easy, and efficient way my order was processed and the ice maker was delivered.I followed the instructions included with the ice maker, and installed the replacement ice maker in about 20 minutes. I can't thank you enough for the great service. I only wish I had checked my computer after the first ice maker broke down and found your web site.
I am very pleased with the parts received. Every item replaced was identical to the ones received. I was a little skeptical when I ordered, but installation was simple enough to install without having to call a specialist. I will definitely let others know about this web site so that they too can benefit from the ease of ordering and replacing parts on their appliances. And to think that almost bought a new refrigerator. Luckily I found this site and saved over $800.Thank you!

Easy removal. Easy Plug and play install. Didn't even have to use the other wires. After install, put 4 oz of water into ice maker and wait....it didn't start making ice right away, but a couple hours later I heard the wonderful "ice dropping into the bin" sound. Worked great ever since.
I looked up the PartSelection website. Found the parts from the sketches of units and reviewed the videos on repairs. Then I ordered the parts, altho I ordered the complete unit, instead of the control block that said was problem 59% of time. Following instructions replaced the ice maker. Then took apart the auger in the basket and thought I had an incomplete part, but upon closer inspection forund out it was correct. My only problem was that there was no instructions on how to get the block off end of shaft. Tried to impact it off, but by accident found out it screwed off. Then final repair went fast. Parts came fast and overall VERY happy with parts and repairs. They are heavier than original parts so should last longer.
This is an incredibly easy repair. 1) Remove the three screws holding the old icemaker2) Disconnect the electrical connection (I used a spoon to get in and undo the connector clipDo the opposite to install the new icemaker.Total elapsed time was about 5 minutes.
After de-installing the old ice-maker, I noticed that the rotating commutator was broken. Therefore, the electrical rotor was not making contact.The old "working" ice maker plus" system was easily adaptable to the new ice maker unit.The new replacement box came with plenty of spare cable adapters for multiple ice maker settings.
take out Ice maker tray, remove three screws holding the ice maker, unplug electrical connector. Replace with new Ice maker,Ice started to fill the tray. ENJOY!!THANKS.
Took the old one out and plug the new one in, simply as 1 2 3. Order the part one morning,it was here the next afternoon, the ice maker was fixed in less than a half hour. we will order from you the next time.
