Ice maker not working, not making ice

Take the safety door off, remove safety panel on the right back corner with small socket wrench. Slide out the ice maker, disconnect the power connection. Turn the old ice maker over, remove the bottom housing which has 4 screws. Mount the old housing on the new ice maker, slide the power cord through the old power strip slot. Connect the power cord to the refrigerator, slide the new ice maker back in place, reconnect the safety bracket on the right back corner and replace the safety door. Shut the door and wait a few hours and BOOM ice!

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.

Stopped making ice

Turn power off to Ice Maker. First I had to remove the Ice Maker Door by removing the two 1/4" screws.
I then removed the 1/4" screw under the Ice Maker on the right hand side that holds the wire cover in place. The cover can be removed by pulling toward the rear at a angle. Now you can slide the Ice Maker forward until it out and only connected by the wire harness which can now be unplugged
The bottom plate on the old Ice Maker will need to be removed and installed on the new one.
Now just work in reverse.

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.

Icemaker not making ice

If you can turn a screwdriver you can replace this thing. After 10 minutes the new icemaker was installed, and 5 hours later I was enjoying a cocktail with my newly made ice.

Ice maker stopped working

I spent quite a bit of time diagnosing the problem. When the ice maker first stopped working, I noticed the fingers that push out ice where pointing straight down and frozen within the cubes. I pulled out the ice maker and let it thaw so I could move the fingers again. The gear that turns the assembly was not in the correct position after several tries, I finally realized that the heater element wasn't working, so when the fingers started to push out the cubes, they would stick and the gear became stripped.

In the end, I replaced the whole unit which wasn't cheap, but was making cubes within an hour of installing the new unit.

Ice maker would quit making ice, off and on

My Ice Maker would stop making ice and the start back. Finally it quit for good and would not work any longer. The repair was as easy as everone indicated and I am sure that I saved more than half of the cost of calling a repairman. Is used a 1/4 socket and a small ratched. Took less than 15 minutes to completely change out the unit. Thanks for being on the internet. Super cost for the complet unit.

Icemaker not working

Our 2nd Ice-maker since 2003. They don't last forever.
Intact, the Ice-maker takes 15 minutes to swap out. Broken, we wait for a replacement. Ordered extra Fill Cup. Not needed. Different Part broken this time! Latest Ice-maker has an extended Fill Cup so as not to Freeze up when refilling. Nice!

When Trays lose their lining or Unit Freezes up, time to replace it! The Ice-maker should last longer. Maybe we expect too much. We like our ice!
