Icemaker stopped making ice

Checked the hose above the icemaker to see if water was frozen. Ran the freezer at a lower temp to see if lines would unfreeze. Took a wild guess that a component was broken in the icemaker, but it was cheaper to get the entire assembly anyways. Removed about 4 screws under icemaker, disconnected icemaker, jiggled and slid the icemaker and tray out, traded out icemaker assemblies, and put it all back, probably took 10-15 mins, and it made ice again!

I ordered both icemaker motor assembly and the emitter and receiver (sensors)as I was uncertain as to which was the culprit. We couldn't unplug the frige as it is heavy, so we shut the circuit breaker until we were done with the repair. The icemaker motor was a bit clumsy to remove. My refrigerator was entirely different than the one on the video I viewed, as I have a side by side and the video was of an entirely different model. The video's icemaker was not as clumsy to work with. My husband was a little apprehensive so I rode shot gun and assisted and he did great. He did change the motor first and probably should have waited to see if it worked. He didn't wait, and went ahead and changed the sensors....that was a breeze. We waited about 2 hours and lo and behold once the freezer went down to 14 degrees, the icemaker began it's magic and we had a full supply of ice within 24 hours. So, I saved quite a bit of cash by purchasing the parts I needed at Parts Select and eliminated the repairman's expensive fee. Very happy with end results.

Icemaker stoped making ice.

There are two tabs that hold the icemaker to the rails it sits on. I use a small screwdriver and pushed the tabs up to release the tray and slid the Ice maker out. the cover over the control motor just pops right off. Then I removed three screws from the control motor pulled it off and put the new on, replaced the screws and put the cover back on and slid the icemaker back into the rails. I shut the freezer door and within the five minutes it took me to put my tools back in the garage, it was dumping ice. Very easy to fix. You do not need to remove the screws that hold the icemaker to the tray.

Water wouldn't come out of dispenser but ice dispenser was working fine.

I watched the video and removed the tray, but there were no screws underneath it! We tried prying it off with no luck, and then I read the directions from another customer. We removed the door handle, pressed down on the dispensing unit while using a flat head screwdriver to pry off the dispenser unit at the bottom (There are two little slots where the screwdriver fits perfectly.) I was afraid of the thing cracking since it is so old, but it did fine. This was the only hard part. After this was off, the rest of the repair followed the video exactly and it was super easy and took about 5 minutes! As I was detaching the old control bracket, I saw that it was completely broken on the right side. I knew then that this was the correct fix. It was an incredible moment when we tested the dispenser for the first time and water came shooting out! Thanks for your help on this - I would have never dreamed doing a repair like this before, and now i know I can do it.

Turned off the icemaker and took out the hex screw at the back of the unit that held the cable guard. The ice maker was easy to slide out after releasing guide locks on each side of the unit. Pulled the unit forward and released the electrical connection. With the unit on the cabinet, I removed the motor housing cover. Took out the 3 scews holding it in place and the old motor was out. Just reverse the steps putting the new one in. In an hour or two we heard ice dumping into the holder.

The helpful Partselect video showed a slightly different model, as my icemaker uses optics instead of a bail for shutting off the icemaker. I ordered new optics based on a a customer description that, if the light on the right hand side of the freezer door jamb was blinking 2 flashes followed by a pause,it indicated that the optics were faulty, so I ordered and replaced them. This did not solve my problem. Then on-line I found further information that said I should close the flapper on the left side, and if the light was steady (which it was) the optics were OK. I then ordered the motor unit. I unscrewed the single screw under the right hand side of the track with a 1/4" nut driver, but found that sliding out the ice maker involved a little wiggling and prying, and, because it was awkward to disconnect the electrical connection, I found that it was not necessary to disconnect it. Then, after removing the end cap, it was a straight forward process to replace the motor, while adjusting the shaft to line up. Then,reverse all procedures and I now have ice. Success!

Pulled the refridgerator out from the wall . Unplugged it and shut off the water supply. Removed the rear lower panel . Removed the 2 bolts holding the bracket to the frame. Took off all 3 plastic nuts and pulled the lines out. Had to drill the bracket hole to remove it from the smaller bracket. Cut off the ends of all 3 lines. Mounted the new valve to the bracket. Pushed the lines into the new valve connectors. Bolted the bracket back to the frame of the refridgerator. Turned on the water and checked for leaks. Reinstalled the back lower panel and plugged in the power. Tried the water and everything worked now.

We followed the video which was a great help. The only difficulty we had is the black rubber tube (water fill tube) was hard to get into the new ice maker. But finally got it. The new icemaker works wonderful! No more buying ice!
