This part is the replacement heat-release ice maker unit only. This kit comes with four round female connectors at the end of the wire harness. It also comes with the adaptor that converts the harness to three round female and one round male connectors.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
I removed the two screws and unplugged it. I then attached the pigtail to the appliance, then to the fridge. I had to push the excess wire harness into the hole in the back. It took a few minutes to move the rest of the harness out of the way by curving it upward and securing it with a nylon tie.I ordered the ice maker from Part Select on Sunday night and it arrived at 8:32 Tuesday morning, THANK YOU! I ordered very simple weed cutter parts from Sears a week ago and they haven't even shipped yet!

take the ice bin out of freezer. there are 2- 1/4" screws. these screws only need to be loosened a few turns. the ice maker can be slightly lifted up and will come off the screws. unhook the wire harness. take the "L" bracket off the old ice maker and put on the new one. set the new ice maker in. hook up the wire harness. put the new ice maker over the screws, tuck the wires out of the way and pull down into place. tighten the screws.
Remove ice pan below ice maker. Got mirrow verifed the type of screws. Obtained nut driver and felt it at right angle remove screws only have way. The ice maker lifts up and off. Took needle nose pliers to grip and remove electrical connection plug. The instruction and picture sent was no help the picture were the size of a thumb nail no detail could be determine. I installed the adapter plug and all the extra length wiring was the most difficult to type wrap with both hands extended out in front. I finally wrestled it in on to the two screws unscrewed from the wall about 1/2". Keep the ice maker water lever up and ensure it aligns to the water trough inlet. Works Great.glg
Real simple repair..just backed off the two 1/4" hex bolts holding the ice maker to the wall of the fridge,(a little tricky since you can't see them),unclipped the electrical doo hickey. I re-clipped the electrical do hickey of the new ice maker, hung the ice maker on the bolts and then re-tightened them. However,still no ice,my problem was the water valve on the back of the fridge behind the cardboard. Although it was still giving H2O thru the door it was not allowing water to flow to the ice maker. I reccommend pouring some water into the ice tray of the ice maker. If it makes ice and dumps it in to the holder, your ice maker is OK. If it turns out to be your water valve, that fix is easy as well. I HIGHLY reccommend watching the "fix it" video associated with that part. That repair also took less than 15 minutes. Good Luck!

Had to reach right hand to top of ice maker to locate hex head screws by feel, then place nut driver onto hex head by feel and then unloosen screws with lft hand ,a couple of turns, enough to lift ice maker off screws. Replace new icemaker onto screws and tighten screws. The only problem incountered was the location and availability of having to feel with both hands to fit nut driver onto the screws.(could not see with my eyes because front of ice maker blocked view. )
Removed power , unplugged wires and 2 screws then reversed the process 1 hour later first batch of cubes dropped into bin
watched the video (VERY helpful) and then removed the old icemaker and replaced it with the new one. Difficult only because of the small working space in the side by side freezer plus you can't see what you're doing when you tighten the screws. Working like a charm now.
Occasionally, we'd get one batch of ice cubes and a frozen lake of water in the bottom of the ice tray.The installation was easy and I won't bother duplicating the comments of others who have installed this part.One word of caution: The ice maker contains a heating element on the bottom. That element is apparently live even when the ice bar is in the upper (off) position. When I unscrewed the old ice maker and went to lift it off the bolts, I severely burned my finger on the bottom of the old ice maker because apparently I started the repair in the middle of the heating cycle.I highly recommend that you unplug the ice maker entirely before doing the replacement and gingerly ensure that the unit isn't hot before touching it. You'll save yourself a nasty burn.
I loosened the 2 1/4 inch nuts with a nut driver, disconnected the wire harness, and removed the old unit. to replace, I simply connected the harness and bolted the unit back in. The job took about 10 to 15 minutes and the new unit works better than the old one ever did.
Removed 2 screws that hold ice maker in place. Unplugged and took out of freezer. Used the screws I took out to put new ice maker in. Plugged in the power and in 2 days I had a full ice bin and haven't had any worries since. Should have replaced the broken one along time ago but thought that the process was harder than this. Very easy and suggest this to anyone having ice maker issues. Less than $100 and never have to buy ice for the house again.
First I determined the icemaker was the problem when it was no longer calling for water. You can hear that "whistle" for 6-7 seconds when it calls for water. Anyway, replacement was a piece of cake, but did not entirely fix my problem. I also had to flush the lines to the soloniods that allow water to flow through the filter and into the water storage tank because it was cloggged with a little piece of plastic.
installed new ice maker. Was very esay - the only problem I had was the length of the wire, due to the need to use the adapter, was hard to menauver around so that it didn't contact the bottom of the ice maker. Would be best if it was configured so that you had the right wire connection and didn't have to use the adaptor.
It was just a simple replacement, three nuts to loosen , a slight adjustment on the timer and reversal installation...As simple as replacing a light bulb! You needn't be a brain surgeon to do this job! Your installation video was very helpful....Thank you PartSelect Chuck McCann
Loosened 2 screws, lifted icemaker brackets off of loosened retaining screws, unplugged electrical connector from the icemaker.plugged in the supplied jumper harness & connected to the new icemaker, hung it on the loosened screws, secured the 2 screws.Dranke beer & listened to my new icemaker rock & roll.No further problems, Frigie like new.The price was the cheapest I could find. $78.00 total including shipping.A little girl could replace this unit.
The repair took only 5 minutes. I removed the ice bin, which just slides out, then loosened 2 screws at the back-top of the ice maker. I then unplugged the broken ice maker, removed it, put in the new one, re-tightened the screws and plugged it in. It was making ice within an hour.
