Icemaker stopped making ice

Removed 3 screws on the bottom of old ice maker in the fridge, slid out old ice maker, disconnected electrical cable,took out old ice maker. Take the plastic tray from bottom of old ice maker install on new ice maker, reconnect cable, slid in place, replace the three screws. About 3 hours later water ran in and new ice maker started to make ice. The only thing I missed was I didn't rinse out new ice maker before installation. If you don't rinse out new ice maker you have to throw away the first full bin of ice due to metallic taste.

No ice

I could have bought the "brains" of the ice maker, but decided to replace the whole ice and make sure the problem was fixed. This refrig was let in home I just bought, so do not know its history. The biggest problem was trying to get the ice maker out of the tight spot without applying undo pressure on any part. It finally came out. The next problem was figuring out the catch on plug-in for electrial power. That done, the new ice maker went in without a hitch and is making ice. Glad I decided to order the part and do it myself for the cost of a service charge -- and not service call and part.

Ice maker not working

I replaced this same ice maker a month before, if that long, using a part I found $40 cheaper from another site. Needless to say you get what you pay for, the existing part was not exactly the same as the original and leaked water all over the place. I removed the not so old icemaker by removing the flapper door and removing the harness cover then pulling out the existing icemaker followed by disconnecting the wiring harness. Now with the old icemaker removed I removed the bottom tray/shield from the existing ice maker by removing the three screws from it then attached the tray to the bottom of the new ice maker from PartSelect which did not come with the bottom tray/shield. Finally, I executed the removal process in reverse order to install the new ice maker.

CustomerTim from West Palm Beach FL

Icemaker worked intermittently then not at all.

I removed two small bolts that secure the flapper that keeps ice from falling out when you open the door, one bolt that holds a cosmetic cover for the wires and slid the icemanker forward. The only difficult part was removing the plug since it was high up, the wires were stiff and there's a release to push that locks the two plugs together. Once it was removed all was installed in the opposire order.
The part I ordered had a slightly taller channel where the water refills so I had to trim it to allow the new icemaker to slide in without bending the fill nozzle. Other than that it was pretty easy.

Ice maker stopped making ice

Replacing my old ice maker with the new ice maker that I bought through PartsSelect was fairly easy. The part came without any directions - so I am glad that I did a little research on PartSelect prior to ordering. I am not the most mechanically coordinated person - but even with my large hands pulling the old ice maker out and putting the new one in was simple.
Only real problem was trying to snap the plug in and making sure that the connection was completely tight. With a side-by-side refrigerator - getting my hands and shoulders (I am a large man) far enough in to apply enough pressure to snap the connectors was a challenge.
Within 30 minutes, my wife heard the ice maker making ice - I was a hero and I had saved about $150 in the labor I was quoted.

Icemaker stopped making ice

Installing the new icemaker is simple. The only problem I had was disconnecting the wiring. Had to use pliers to gently pull the plugs apart. After that, installing the new one was relatively easy. It's a tight fit but can be accomplished with big American hands ;-). After about 15 minutes, it starting making ice again.

CustomerGilbert from Champaign IL

Icemaker quit working

Removed 3 screws but was unable to remove without removing another screw for better access to disconnect wiring harness. Then had to really almost force unit out of the holder. Quoted price was $177. If I ordered by 3:00pm the next day would be shipped just as promtly. The only thing is the next morning when I called the price was $201. because of manufacturers price increases. I was billed $201 plus shipping even though they had the item in stock and had received it at the old price. Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today.

CustomerChantel from El Paso TX

Ice maker quit making ice.

This was relatively easy, but did require patience. First I removed the ice maker door cover, then the bolts, which required a socket and wrench. Next the icemaker wires had to be disconnected, it was a little tough - the connection was on there tight. Once the old unit is out, make sure you remove the motor cover and bracket - you need those on the new one before it goes in. After replacing the bracket and motor cover on the new unit, you connect the wires, pop in the new unit and put all the bolts back in. It was mostly a one person job, but I did need a second set of hands when disconnecting and connecting the wires.

Easy replacement saved service call $

Ice maker replacement was cheaper than $150 service call not including replacement cost. Did have some problems with the wire bundle and installing the cover but ice maker works great. Thanks for the video on how to replace.

Icemaker is "overfilling" and dripping into the freezer.

I have not completed the repair. I know what needs to be done, but I cannot loosen the screws to remove the icemaker. I'll probably finish the work but calling a repairman to do the installation.
