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.

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.

Icemaker stopped making ice

First thought it might've been a problem with the inlet valve assembly but it wasn't. Took the factory unit out of the refrigerator and from testing found out one of the wires (black) was busted so splice a new wire in and motor started working but the "arm" would only rotate to a certain point and stop. I then discovered a broken tab inside the motor housing so at the point I just ordered a brand new icemaker unit. When I got it, I just mounted it to the base plate then slid it into the tracks in the refrigerator. The spout where the water comes out was the only tricky part but it is flexible so you just have to push it away and put it back into the tray when the whole unit is inserted. Once inserted, connect the power to the refrigerator, lock the wire cover to the base plate and you should be fine. The new unit started working right away. Whole process took 5 minutes.

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.

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.
