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.

I backed out the 2 top screws about a quarter inch and then removed bottem screw with a quater inch nut driver. I then lifted Ice Maker clear of the two top screws and lowered it enough to unclip the power connection with a small screwdriver. The new Ice Maker was wired correctley for my refrigeator so all I had to do wea reconnect the power connection and mount new Ice Maker on the two top screws and install the bottem screw. It took e while for the new Ice Maker to start it's cycle but after it did, it worked GREAT. Part Select service was OUTSTANDING, ordered part one day and received the next. THANKS!!!!
I am NOT a handyman, and my family laughed at me when I said I was going to fix the ice maker all by myself. I ordered a replacement ice maker. When it arrived, I opened the box and read the instructions. It seemed easy. I removed the old ice maker, with a socket set. I then took off the shut off lever from the old one and placed it on the new one, since the new one didn't come with it. I then put the new one in place. All the parts fit perfectly. The ice machine was making ice within an hour. My family was amazed... and I got the last laugh!
first I backed off top two screws and removed bottom screw. unplugged wire harness. removed old icemaker. harness on new icemaker was the same. plugged in hung new icemaker on top two screws installed bottom screw. turned water on job complete and very easy. I was very satisfied with the whole process.
The repair was extremely easy; after turning off the water valve on the back of the refrigerator, I removed the 3 screws (using a short length nut driver due to the confined space) and unplugged the harness. I did not need to splice the harness on the original ice maker and I simply plugged it into the new ice maker, screwed the unit back on and turned the water back on. It's great to have plenty of ice without having to use the ancient ice trays. My wife had overloaded the original plastic Pan-Crispr basket with too much cheese which caused the flange to break. The replacement basket from Partselect was an exact match and simply slid in.I'll definitely come back to Partselect for accessories and parts.
First, I unplugged the power to the entire fridge, and then removed the ice tray and ice door. Next, I unplugged the flat plug in the very back left behind the icemaker. Then I removed the 1/4" hex head sheet metal screws (2) and the phillips head screw (1) that hold the icemaker to the left side of the freezer wall. New icemaker came with a different style trip arm, so I used it. Plugged new icemaker in before reattaching it with the same (3) screws. Replaced ice tray and door, plugged in fridge, and waited....Dumped its first batch of ice maybe a couple of hours later. Not much trouble-shooting is needed when the entire icemaker is as easy and relatively inexpensive to replace as this. Twenty minutes, max.
Originally replaced water inlet valve, not the problem. Tried to work from cheap to expensive.1. Turn off power, shut off water supply2. Loosen top two screws of ice maker (will slide up and off, no need to take top two out)3.Remove bottom screw from ice maker4.Pulled unit, snapped out existing wire harness5.Cut hole for water inlet on end of new unit and attached wire icemaking on/off bracket.6 Connected existing wiring harness to new unit7. Slid new unit down onto top two screws, put in bottom screw and tightened all three 8. Turned on power and water supplyHad ice being made within two hours. Part Select has given me great service, highly recommend.
I removed two screws on the top and one underneath the unit. Then I disconnected the cable. The hardest part was getting the nut driver on the bottom screw because it was obscured by the unit. The replacement unit plugged right in! I got my first batch of ice in about 20 minutes. All I really needed was the timer unit, but the entire ice maker wasn't much more expensive, especially when you consider the time saved on installation!
Received my kit quickly. Job was fast and easy. Removed 3 screws with nutdriver and unpluged the wiring harness. Use a flat blade screwdriver to lift the tab on the plastic end cap of the harness. The icemaker comes out in one piece. The wiring harness that came installed on the replacement icemaker matched mine perfectly. (It comes with two others). I plugged the new one in, replaced the screws, bottom one first to help hold it while replacing the top two screws. I used the shut-off arm from my faulty icemaker. Turned the power back on and put 1/2 cup of water in the tray and walked away. Ice dropping into the bin was music to my ears. Didn't need any of the clips or things that came with the icemaker. It was basically a "plug and play". I'm so happy to have ice again, and at a great savings!
I had a technician called out to the house to look at repairing several appliances that all have broken parts after just 3 yrs of use. Hood, Microwave, Oven, Fridge all in need of minor repairs.. Anyway - the estimate was $240 to replace the ice maker. I ordered PS358591 for $104. and it came in a couple days.. I took out one screw - slid out the icemaker, unplugged it - plugged in new one and slid it in the slot - and done !! Took about 20 mins.. didnt need any of the wiring harnesses in the box from partselect. Was way to easy to do !! Thank you !
Ice Maker would seem like it was the valve was leaking and Ice would build up at the rear of tray.After listening to it cycle, (drop ice and fill) valve would open up again about 20 minutes later.Over flowed and iceberg would form at rear.Replaced icemaker unit and works fine now.
Loosen the 2 screws at the top of the icemaker with a nutdriver while holding the unit in place. Remove the single screw at the bottom of the icemaker. Remove the old icemaker after disconnecting. The replacement unit had the exact connector, I just connected it and put the screws back. Replacing the valves was also easy. All the connectors and fittings matched perfectly.I ordered the parts on a Sunday, and they showed up on Tues. Nice job on the website and providing parts that make it really simple to fix an appliance and save a bunch of money. Thanks!
1. shutoff water2. removed 3 screws holding old ice maker. A small nut or screw driver is needed to get into a somewhat tight area3. detached electrical connector4. cut indicated area for water inlet to lie in4. attached new electrical connector (no splicing needed)5. attached new ice maker with 3 screws6. put on water
Removed the top two screws and one on the bottom which attach the ice maker to the side of the freezer. I unclipped the wire bundle from the side of the ice maker and unplugged the connector, totally removing the unit . The maker came with several different wiring setups, but I just used the existing. The contol arm on the new unit basically snaps into place and the above process is reversed to install the new unit. My old ice maker had an accelerator which blows cold air to the bottom of the tray to speed up ice production. This component was undamaged and by taking off the new units outer end cap and borrowing the clips from the old unit, this component can be installed on the new ice maker.
Followed directions enclosed with new ice maker.1. Unplugged refrigerator. Removed three screws holding ice maker with a 1/4" nut driver while supporting ice maker with free hand2.After removing ice maker from sidewall, unplugged wire pigtail and removed entire ice maker unit3. Installed new pigtail, and bail wire from old ice maker, onto new ice maker4. Holding ice maker with one hand, inserted new pigtail into plug, aligned water fill tube and held unit in position to reinstall 3 screws with 1/4" nut driver5. Set wire bail in down position, plugged refrigerator power cord back in. About an hour later had new ice cubes. This was a much easier job than I had anticipated. Thank you PartSelect! I am a happy camper once again. This refrigerator is in my motorhome.
