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.
The repair was very easy. I ordered the part from Part Seelect and the delivery was very quick. Opened the box and took out the new ice maker. Emptied the freezer, turned off the power and the water to the Refigerator / Freezer / Iceww Maker. Used a quarter inch nut driver to remove the old ice make. Really easy remove one screw and lewsen two ther screws. unplugged the wiring harness. Took the bale arm off old unit and installed it on the new unit. Check to make sure I had the right wiring harness installed on the ic make which it was. Installed and leveled the new unit. in a little over a hour I had ice. Had to make a few adjustments to the water level setting to make sure all ice cube trays filled up completely. So easy to do a cave man could do it.

Wathced video (VERY helpful)of how to do repair to make sure it was within my capabilities to do. Made sure I had all requested numbers before ordering. Replacement part was an EXACT fit. 15 minutes of work and I saved nearly $150 of estimate by local service company. I am (and will continue to be) a repeat customer. Thanks. Mel
I removed the two attachment screws and lifted the old icemaker out and disconnected the plug. The new one was identical to the old one so the installation was just a reversal of the removal. The water soleniod was sticking from not being used so I took it apart and cleaned it. The next morning I had ice. The part arrived at my door in less than 24 hours from my order placement.
Used a nutdriver and removed the lower mount nut, then loosened the the top two nuts and the icemaker lifted off, then unplugged the device and replugged it into the "old" plug(the new ones were not needed) then remounted it. Then it did not fill (as others posted happened right away.) Some poster suggested manually filling the tray so I did it. Later it froze and emptied and refilled and started working normally. Not sure if putting water had anything to do with it or it just took some time. It would be nice if the instructions addressed this issue.
Super easy! I read all these posts but here are a couple helpful hints - 1. to remove the old icemaker definitely remove the one lower screw but then unscrew the top two screws only half way. The top screw holes on the old and new icemakers are triangle shaped so the old icemaker will simply lift off the half-unscrewed top screws. This makes reinstallation SO much easier.2. carefully lower the loose icemaker enough to disconnect the wiring harness from the fridge and remove the old icemaker.3. On installation the one thing to be careful with is the positioning of the fill tube. It's easier if it's in place when you reconnect the harness of the new icemaker because the harness is only as long as it must be.4. hang the new icemaker on the half unscrewed top screws, snug them up, install the lower screw and flip the wire ice level sensor arm down.I didn't even turn the water off because only a working icemaker can turn the water valve on and off.Plugged in the power to the fridge and within an hour water filled the tray. By morning I had 2-3 batches of fresh ice in the bucket. Super easy.
First I removed the ice bin to give me room to work. Then I took out the screws that held the old ice maker in place. I disconnected the wiring. I then plugged the wires of the new ice maker into the old wiring harness. I put in the bottom screws and loosely connected the top screws. I checked the level of the ice maker with a small level and then tightened the screws. The nest thing was to install wire level that shuts off the ice maker when the bin is full. Finally put the ice bin back in place.
It actually took me longer to think about the repair than actually doing it. It was three screws, two upper that you just loosen and then one on the bottom that you remove. Pulled the unit out and disconnected the power. Slipped the new unit onto the two upper brackets, after connecting the power cord, tightened the bracket screws, reattached the bottom set screw and I was making ice. Incredibly easy. When I ordered the replacement unit they said it would arrive in 3-5 days, but it only took a day and a half. Great experience all the way through. I'm a customer for life.
First I removed the (3) screws holding the unit to the side of freezer wall with a nutdriver. Then I disconnect the Harness from the back of the freezer. You have to work the Harness off connector because it was very tight. The Unit came with the correct harness installed so I reconnected the harness to the Freezer and replaced the (3) screws. I had ice in about 2.5 hours.
Removed the old ice maker (2 screws, about 2 minutes). Read the excellent instructions. Prepped the replacement unit by adding the mount bracket. It plugged straight into the existing fridge wiring harness. Amazing how standardized icemakers are! Total time for a very careful job was under an hour.It came in the mail, I got home about 5pm and had it installed that evening before dinner. First load of ice was in the catcher before I went to bed. Very nice kit, and economical compared to a new fridge!
Just like the others. Unplug the refrigerator. Loosen the top two screw and remove the bottom screw. Unplug the unit, plug in the new one, slid the unit over the top two screws, replace the bottom screw and tighten the top two screws. Done. I ordered the unit Sunday it was shipped Monday and arrived Phoenix Wednesday, shipper then rerouted it to Tucson Thursday who sent it back to Phoenix on Friday and finallydelivered it Saturday.
I loosened the two screws on which the ice makers hangs and removed the third screw toward the back. I lifted the icemaker a bit and removed the part and unplugged the unit at rear. I reversed the process to install the new one. All very simple.At first nothing happened, no water filling the tray. I thought there must be some other problem. A few hours later I heard ice being dumped into the ice container. I don't understand the delay but it works fine. At first no
I removed the 2 screws on top and the one screw underneath holding the Ice Maker to the wall of freezer.I pulled the electrical connection from the wall next (wiggled it back and forth until it came out). I matched it up to the picture from this site and ordered the replacement unit.When it arrived, it had a lot of extra parts to match up to mine and any other fridge. A good tip is to keep the old unit so you can configure the new unit the same. Although it was easy, this took me the longest of the entire job. Once this was done, it took me !0 minutes to plug the new unit into my fridge and then attach it back to the wall with the 3 screws.Not a hard job.Thanks
Removed Ice tray and flap followed by the three screws that held the old ice maker in place. (I probably didn't have to remove the top two, they are designed to just loosen and lift up on the mecanism to free.) I then pulled the old wiring harness out of the original ice maker. A small screw driver helped in depressing a tab while pulling on the harness. The same process was used to remove the wiring harness that was attached to the new replacement unit. I connected the original wiring harness that I had disconnected from the bad ice maker, and it fit perfectly into the replacement unit. No need to splice or use any of the harnesses that came with replacement. I tried installing the new unit and discovered that there was interfernce with the water feed hose. I had forgotten to break off the tab on the end of the replacement unit. Once I did that using pliers, the unit fit fine. I tightened the screws, installed the on/off mecanism and replaced the tray and flap. I then waited and waited, hoping to hear the forgotten sound of water entering the ice maker. Had a beer and walked the dogs thinking I had failed, but low and behold, over an hour later, the ice maker turned on the water. Many hours later, my wife woke me up in the middle of the night to declare we had cubes! Success.
removed the three screws holding the old ice maker in place - unpluged the electronics .... took the new ice maker pluged in the electronics screwed in into place and we were in business and had ice within an hour.
First I turned off water supply. Then removed the two screws that attach ice maker, then disconnected the wiring harness.Attached new ice maker in reverse order.
