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.

Removed two screws, pulled the element out and disconnected the wire harness. Reversed the procedure and we were one.Kept a close watch n the ice maker to make sure we didn't have another flood. The first time an ice cube stuck between the metal bale and the side of the freezer--we had about 50 gallon of water on the floor. Thought we had it fixed and a few days later another flood. Decided to replace the unit and it is working great...Hopefully no more floods.
it was very very simple, it took only three screwsusing socket set.I removed the old one and put the new one in place , connect electric connection in 2 seconds snapping it toghether, that is all to it.the hardest part is waiting on the ice to be made , which it took three to four hours for the first batch.I am in the medical profession, IF I CAN do it , everyone CAN!!!!!!!!
With a little investigation, I found that the ice tray had corroded, and the increased friction was keeping the ice from dumping out properly. It also had apparently damaged the gear motor, and the timing of the ice ejector was off. I went to the Part Select site and found that the icemaker specifically for my refrigerator was significantly more expensive than the universal Whirlpool replacement icemaker, but the two looked similar, so I ordered the universal replacement. When it arrived about 3 days later, I was able to easily remove the standard parts and replace them with the plastic parts and wire harness that were unique to my refrigerator. They fit perfectly, and I had the new icemaker installed in only about 20 minutes, including time spent to remove and replace the plastic parts
Removed one screw on cover covering wires on old ice maker,disconnected plug, removed ice maker, checked connector to make sure there was120vac, Power supply was good, installed new ice maker, connected plug. Works great.Part to fix ice maker is very expensive, complete unit only $15 more and it has a one year warranty.
It was very fast and easy. Two screws to take of the ice door cover. the ice maker itself just slid out and all I did was disconnnect the wiring harness. Unscrewed the plastic bottom case and screwed onto the new one. Attached the harness and slid it back in.
i can't believe it was that easy, just removed the screws, pulled elements out disconnected wires well it seemed to easy so had to read the directions or it would have took only 10 minutes. to do this job. thanks so much for your web sight, the repair man said it would probably be 200.00 or soyea right 100.00 and its making all the ice we need thanksjoan mcquain
unscrewed 4-5 screws; unplugged; attached arm; installed; reverse pattern. truly easy. cost 1/3 what repair man quoted me. this is easy!
Replacing the ice maker is no big deal. Just take out the old one and replace it with the new one. The replacement, however, didn't work very well. Seemed like its timer was off, so it would dump ice cubes before they were completely frozen. So, we go shells of ice cubes. Not good. Called Parts Select, advised them of the problem, and they agreed to replace the part. Could not be happier with the customer service I received from this company.
decided to take a chance and replace the ice maker,so far no water leaking.feels nice to know the problem is fixed.thanks for the video on how to replace it, thanks again very easy repair
While it probably could have been remedied with the controller, the cost difference between the controller and the unit made me opt for the entire unit. The fridge is a side by side, which meant in order for me to see the screws I'd need to use a mirror. Once I got the socket on the nut, it wasn't difficult to back out the upper screws. The lower was a bit easier. The power cable however was frozen from years of attachment, and really defied removal. Once removed, the unit came out easily. In my case, the wires had to be removed from the old unit and reinstalled in the new. Not a big deal, but just another step. the issue I had was upon re-installation. The wire harness didn't want to reassemble, and since I could only fit one arm inside, it was difficult to get the connector attached and tightened. I was able to get a pair of channel locks across the connector and get it together. Once that was done I hung the unit back on the upper screws, verifying the fill tube was properly set. I then re-tightened the lower screw. I then turned on the water and it seemed to take a very long time before the unit actually filled with water. It's now been several hours and the ice is starting to once again collect in the bucket.
We followed the video on the KitchenAid website. We turned off water valve at the wall, unplugged the refrigerator, removed the old icemaker by unscrewing the three mounting screws. We unplugged old icemaker from electrical source at back of refrigerator freezer compartment and removed it. We detached the on/off bar from the old icemaker and installed it on the new icemaker. The new icemaker fit perfectly. We plugged in the electric wire to the existing power cord at the back of the refrigerator freezer compartment. We placed the new icemaker in the same position as the old, making sure the mounting screw holes were aligned. Plugged refrigerator back in and turned on the water. Works beautifully.
Followed instructions from online video. Used the opportunity to clean the freezer compartment really well. Also discovered that water solenoid valve was failing and have since replaced that also.
As directed in video clip, an excellent instruction video. Made for one of my quickest trouble free repairs in a long while.
New inlet valve. very easy. Part select was great. I first ordered a new ice maker, this did not fix the problem. Part select allowed me to return it and get the right part. The repair vidio was great.
