The plastic water fill tube got cracked when we moved. I called a parts company and they told me they couldn't just sell me the tube I would have to buy a whole kit for about $50 dollars. I decided to glue the tube. It worked for a while then it started leaking. So I thought I would have to buy

Thought The issue was the solenoid valve. Took a lot of research but finally found through parts select. Perfect match and easy to install, but unfortuantely, it did not solve the problem of poor ice production. Now would appear that the icemaker itself needs to be replaced.

Ice maker did not make ice. Everything else worked.

Note: I thought the motor was bad, it was actually one of the gears. Order the motor-gear module. You will probably receive the motor-gear module if you order the motor only.

I removed the hex bolt on the right side of the ice maker. Removed the whole assembly from the refrigerator, diconnecting the cable as I pulled it out. I use a philips screw driver to remove the three scews holding the motor gear assembly. I pulled off the motor/gear module; installed the new motor gear assembly. Reinstalled the ice maker. Easy!

The coating on the mold /heater unit as cracked and some broken off and cause the water to drip down in the Ice trace and form large icicles

I just removed the unit and replaced the mold/'heater with the new one and re-installed. It was very easy and didn't have to turn off the refer. or empty the frozen food.
However , there were not instruction that came with the mold/heater unit. I had no problem but other do-in-uselfers may need some basic instructons

Valve-inlt had stopped functioning. The longest part of the repair was determining that the water lines weren't clogged and were working efficiently. Replacing the faulty valve only took a matter of minutes. The part was ordered and shipped in a timely fashion. Thanks!

First I did the diagnostics and thought the water valve wasn't functioning so I replaced that, but it still didn't make ice. So I went on line and found the first thing to fix should have been the module and motor assembly. It was a real easy fix because I had pulled the ice maker before to investigate what was wrong. I just removed one screw and disconnected the electrical. There were four screws holding the motor assembly on. So I put the new motor on and had ice in 30 mnutes.

Unplugged the frig., removed three screws, pulled the motor out, then slid the new motor in. Within a few hours I had ice again. The only problem was I felt the motor was still hooked to something after I took out the screws. Just be firm and pull it out, the pressure you feel is the thin bar that slides into the back of it to monitor the level of ice in the tray. It was REALLY easy.

The ice stripper cracked from freezing.

First I disconnected the refrigerator. I snapped off the service door. taped closed the auto.door shut off located on the left side wall. the unit just pulled out,
disconnecting the power source, removed the plastic cover, unscrewed (3) screws and reattached the new unit . i reconnected the process in reverse.
if i had repairman do this it would have cost twice as much .

Teeth on the wheel were broken off.

I found your website while searching the internet for a repairman. My fridge was making strange clicking sounds and no ice. I suspected a certain part after reading the testimonials on your website. The part I ordered was delivered in less than a week and I installed it in less than 5 minutes. I probably saved about $200.00. Thank you!!!

Did not have to remove the complete ice maker. Only the front part that housed to motor assembly. Two Clips removes to cover and three screws removed the motor unit and the rest was in reverse. No wires to disconnect or connect. It just plugs in to unit. Works great and cheaper than from Sears Parts Direct shipping cheaper also. Will buy from Part Select again.
Thanks, Ron
