Broken ice bin drive ring

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Removed 6 screws to get at broken part. Had to remember the disassembly sequence to properly reassemble. The whole process was relatively simple. I saved about $125 which would have been the cost of a repairman coming to the house.

seloniod failed and ice maker only made crushed ice

  • Customer: Alan from Newark, DE
  • Difficulty: Easy

Removed screw onder on left side of ice maker shelf. Then removed shelf while disconnecting the wires behind. Removed selonoid and yolk and simply reinstalled in reverse order. The customer service was great because I first ordered the wrong part and was easily returned and correct part sent. If you are ordering and have questions call them. If you sense your agent doesnt have the full knowkedge you need I would ask for another one. This is why my original part was wrong. They handled my problem and I was pleased.

The ring was cracked and it would not dispence ice.

I switched the ring and still had the same problem. What caused the Drive ring to crack was the Ice maker drive was cracked also, when it filled with water it would tip. The ice was not freezing completely and would cause the ice to build up and the auger was froze with ice or a big piece of ice would jam it. So I replaced the Ice Tray, it is working like new. I have to buy another ice tray as inventory, although I know inventory is bad but I never agreed with that theory.

Ice Maker Repair

Took my husband and son to remove the auger because it seemed to be frozen somewhat. After a little work, the auger broke loose and the repair was a quick process. I thoroughly enjoy the fact that the part was correct and I my ice maker was fixed for very little money and I did not have to buy a new refrigerator! I was not sure that we could get the replacement part because we are not the original owner of the refrigerator. So it has some age, but still works strong!

First I removed the ice hopper, then I removed one 1/4 inch self tapper, then I removed six screws holding the motor ann solenoid. I then unplugged the wiring harness, the ice enclosure then pulled right out. I set the new one in place refastened the motor and solenoid, plugged the wiring harness in and put the self tapper back in and I was making ice.

I read what other people had done so I tried the easiest solution--Forced, without breaking, the plastic & fit the ring right where it needed to be.

The most time-consuming part was removing the screws. First, remove the 8 screws that attaches the ice bin to the front cover. This will free up the auger enough to pull up the back end where the drive ring is held in place. The ring just pops right out. The only thing I recommend is as long as you have the bin out (and empty), go ahead and give it a good wash. Make sure it is thoroughly dry so that no ice freezes to the moving parts.

Ice cubes position makes crushed ice

  • Customer: Alexandre from Bellevue, WA

After installing the new solenoid and hooking it up as per the wiring diagram still the ice maker crushes the ice cubes in both "crushed ice" and "ice cubes" pisition (solenoid would not produce the magnetic field). Instead it is getting very hot.

So, i need an additinal advise.
