No ice

Removed one screw, carefully removed the unit, unplugged it and reversed the process to install. My only issue was the picture of the part I ordered was not the same as I received.

Ice maker quit after 3 years

I removed the two screws holding the cover door, then the three on the uder side of the icemaker assembly. I carefully worked the old unit out; it was a tight fit. The most difficult step involved disconnecting the power assembly. Due to the space, it was hard to get hold of each side of the clip to pull it out. After the old unit was out, just reversed the steps and had the first batch of ice in less than an hour. (I washed the new unit with warm water and soup as it had grease/lubricant on it when taken out of the package).

Icemaker quit making ice

I found a repair guide online to check the resistance of the motor, thermostat, and heater mold. The resistance of the motor and heater mold were both a little off from their recommendations. I had an assumption that it was the motor but I decided to just buy the whole assembly basically for spare parts and I didn't feel like messing around with it any more. The new icemaker was not just a drop in replacement as part select told me because the Icemaker Bearing and Cup Assembly was larger than the original one. Thus, I had to switch it with the old one really quick so instead of a 3 min job it was 20 or so.....

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.

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.
