Icemaker Shut Off Arm

Also, the icemaker can be turned off by lifting the arm all the way to the top until in a locked position. If your icemaker is dispensing too much ice or is not making enough ice, you may have to replace the icemaker shut off arm. This part is made of white plastic and metal.

Thermostat Order 542369 Cement

The ice maker thermostat, also known as the cycling thermostat, controls and regulates the ice maker ejection cycle by monitoring the temperature inside the freezer to determine when to release the ice into the bin and start the ice making cycle again.

Before you begin this repair, make sure the power is disconnected from your refrigerator, and that any food that may spoil is safely stored. This is an OEM part and is sourced directly from the manufacturer. This thermostat is sold individually, and comes with two attachment clips.
