Followed the instructions in the PartSelect video. It was so easy. Replaced the old ice maker on Monday. Visited a friend on Tuesday. Her Kenmore Frig's ice maker was broken, would not make ice. I told her how easy it was to fix and ordered the part for her today. It should be here by Tuesday and I will install it as soon as it comes in.

Over the last several years we have had several appliance repairmen try to fix the icemaker. One replaced the entire icemaker. We bought a booster pump for the water. After spending about $1,000 over the past few years trying to fix the problem, a plumber doing routine plumbing work looked at it, and said it might be the control board. I found instructions online how to test the control boards. I ran the test, and they failed. I ordered the parts from PartSelect, followed their easy instructions, and tested the new units. They passed with flying colors. We now actually have an automatic icemaker for the first time in years.

Unplugged the refrigerator then removed two vertical screws on the very back back of the control panel (the ones with the washers). Do not remove the four other vertical screws in the panel. The front plastic plate on control panel snaps off and there are two horizontal screws under the plate. Remove them and the control panel will drop down allowing access to the light switch. Unplug the two wires (one black and one white) from the old switch. Discard the old switch, snap the new one into place and reconnect the two wires. Snap the front plastic plate back into place, plug in the refrigerator and you are done! Problem solved with a new $16.00 switch and saved at least $75.00 or more from an appliance repair call. Thanks Part Select!
