CustomerKenneth from Scott LA

Ice maker not refilling

1) unplug the refrigerator
2) remove the cover plate for the sensor board on your left facing the refrigerator
3) unplug the sensor board then remove the board from the cover plate.
4) install the new board onto the cover plate and
reinstall the board in to left side of the freezer compartment.
5) repeat this proces for the right side of the freezer compartment.
The two boards are very different and you will have no problem telling the difference between them.
6)Plug the refigerator back in and observe the red indicator light on the right hand side of the freezer compartment (it should be blinking) . Then hold down the flap on the left hand side and the blinking red light should go solid on. If it hasn't you have another problem with the ice maker.

Ice maker would not release ice cubes

My Ice maker would not release ice cubes, it thought the ice bin was full. So I got on You Tube and looked up how to videos. Partselect videos were the best that I found and the prices were low also. The whole repair took about 15 minutes.

CustomerAdam from West Valley City UT

Ice was made intermittently, and then no ice at all!

My ice maker about six months ago started to ice make very intermittently and eventually stopped all together. The emiitter no matter what I did was giving me two flashes then a pause, over and over again. I purchased the emitter kit and with a Phillips screwdriver in about five minutes my ice maker kicked the sulinoid on and ice was already started!!! Fast and easy repair!!!

CustomerRogna from Antioch CA

Ice machine stopped making ice but, water still working in door.

I went online and watched a U-tube video that said it was most likely the electronic emitter and receiver boards and showed how to replace them. I first unplugged the appliance (just to be safe) then, I unscrewed the screws holding the faceplate on. The board simply has a plug which you unplug with a little care and effort. I then plugged in the new board, resituated it into the hole and screwed the faceplate back on. You simply do the same for the other board on the other side. Viola! Lots and lots of ice!! The guy at sears said I shouldn't do work on such a complex appliance. Probably because I am a woman! Anyone can do this job! Winning!

CustomerMona from The Sea Ranch CA

Ice maker not making ice

Removed screws holding face plates in place inside the freezer housing ... unplugged the old emitter and receiver, then plugged in the new emitter and receiver. Screwed the face plates back in place. Actually, this repair took place a few years ago. When my ice maker quit recently, I noticed the red light inside the freezer housing was not blinking properly. I remembered from my previous experience that the pattern of red light blinks was diagnostic, but of course, the pattern is not described in my owner's manual. The installation instruction sheet that comes with this part does give the diagnostic patterns, however. As it turned out this time, when I was ready to install the new parts, I discovered that one of the little ice-flipper thingies (technical term) was caught on the ice cube-freezing tray ... I released the flipper thingy, and, in time I was back in the ice-making business. So the new part is stowed away in the pantry until the present emitter/receiver parts fail ... and I made a copy of the red-light diagnostic pattern to put in the owner's manual. Now, all I will have to do when the existing parts fail, is remember where I stowed the replacement parts!

CustomerCharles from Chino Hills CA

Quit making ice

I watched the video on your web site and did exactly what the video showed. I could not a get an appliance parts shop to tell me how to test the sensor, so I went on your site. It not only showed me how to change the sensor,it showed me how to test the sensor in my refrigerator. I have changed ice makers before, but never the sensor. Your site saved me $75 dollar service call and saved me $35 dollars on the part. Thank you very much!!!!

CustomerDale from Mansfield OH

Ice maker quit making ice

I replaced the Electronic control boards because the indicator lights were letting me know that there was a problem, but!!!! when that did not fix the problem, I took the ice maker out and removed the control module from the end of the icemaker only to find out that water had gotten in there and corroded the electronic contacts... this may have been why the indicator lights were not working on the emitter and receiver. I was going to purchase just the module, but the entire ice tray was beginning to de-laminate and plastic was flaking off all over. To make a long story somewhat shorter, I purchased a new icemaker and it works fine... one caution though... My icemaker did not come with any information that told me I had to flip the icemaker to the "on" position from vacation mode by inserting a screwdriver in the back of the module inside of a small white ring. This hole is where the shut off arm WOULD go if my model had one.

CustomerErnest from Reno NV

Ice maker stopped working

I first ordered the electronic control boards. However, they arrived with an Instruction Sheet. The diagnostic procedures listed on that sheet identified that the optics were working properly, so did not use the electronics. That left the motor assembly as the culprit. Ordered that. The motor assembly arrived promptly and installed easily - just like the video. Ice maker began making ice immediately. Thank you PartSelect.

CustomerRick from Lorain OH

The icemaker would not work

I tried several things first : changed the filter cartridge, then the water control valve, then the control boards but still no ice. Rather than buy a new motor assembly, I bought a whole new icemaker which included the motor assembly and finally SUCCESS! In total it cost me about $350 but you have to try the easier and cheaper things first. One 1/4" screw and disconnecting the wire harness clip plus reusing the old icemaker base and the repair was complete. I would recommend a more detailed discussion on what each part does and the way the colored wires attach. Wire clips can sometimes be connected upside down. I was very happy with how quickly I received the new part. I whole-heartedly recommend PartSelect.
