Icemaker stopped making ice months ago

I was meaning to call a repair service when a co-worker told me he fixed his washer machine after watching a you tube video. I went home and watched a video that both diagnosed the problem and told me what to look for to determine which part need replacing. I ordered the replacement icemaker unit and it arrived in time for the weekend. The whole process took about 15 minutes and I had a full bin of ice in about a day. I'm sure this saved me hundreds of dollars. Very easy.

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.

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.

CustomerRon from Bremerton WA

Ice maker wouldn't work.

First I removed the ice tray door by lifting and then releasing the hinge. Then I used a nutdriver and socket to remove three recessed screws that are located under the icemaker. I also removed the screw on the underside which holds a plastic flange in place covering the wiring harness. Remove the plastic flange and slide the icemaker out as far as possible, then disconnect the wiring harness from the icemaker. Slide the old unit out and discard. Reverse the procedure to install the new unit. Points of frustration: Disconnecting the wiring harness--it is in there mighty tight! Also, when sliding the new unit into place, clearing the rubber water spout without breaking something is somewahat of a challenge. The unit comes out
easier than it goes back in!

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 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 stopped making ice

We removed the old icemaker, that was the easy part. It only has one bolt holding it in place. The tricky part was installing the new one. The replacement icemaker was a little different than the original, but it fit and works great. Simple connect the wires insert the icemaker, screw the bolt in place and viola. The shipping was so much faster than I had expected. My first order was received broken but they immediately sent a replacement and I got it the next day. It was hassle free and our first time replacing the icemaker went smoothly.

Ice maker stopped working

I searched the internet and found a detailed instructions list (with pics). The written instructions on Partselect.com were on the money but the pics really helped! Start to finish, the entire job took 15 minutes. If you're the least bit handy, this is an easy one!

CustomerRex from Hilliard OH

Quit making ice

The first maker I received was broken. The funnel at the top that directs the water into the tray was broken. I called PartSelect and told them how I had received the part and there was no problem. They shipped me a new part, and it must have been the same day as I got the replacement two days later. I was very satisfied with that quick response. I removed one screw and the cover to the wiring harness. Slid the icemaker forward and unplugged the wiring. Then removed the icemaker. I had to remove the old bracket from the assembly as the new maker did not come with one. Installed three screws in bottom of bracket then reinstalled the assembly and plugged the wiring back in. The whole process took about 10 to 12 minutes, very easy.

Stopped making ice cubes.

Basically, we unscrewed the holding tray and disconnected the water supply and slid the old unit out.We then reversed procedure installing the new unit and poured some water into resevoir and waited till the ice was frozen and then reheated by the bottom section whiched allowed the tynes to cut and dump the cubes. we had previously bought and installed the motor for the old unit but after a day with no action, we brought that unit back to Sears and we ordered the whole replacement unit from PartsSelect. The part came within 3 days and we very happy with the results.
