Ice Maker quit making cubes, cutter wire broken

  • Customer: Kenneth from New Richmond, OH
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

First I removed the cutter grid assembly by removing two screws. Also disconnect the wire that powers the grid. Once on the bench, simply remove the broken cutter wire. String in the new wire, starting at one end and working back and forth to the other end. Tighten the terminal screw on the first end, and then "strum" the wires, one at a times, pulling the wires taught. Pull the excess wire thru the second terminal, until all wires are taught, with equal tension. Tighten the second terminal screw, and cut off excess wire at both ends. Re-assemble cutter grid into Ice Maker.
Problem solved!

There was a loud noise coming from the fridge - we ordered the new part it came a lot sooner than we excepted and we replaced it in about 20 minutes- the hardest part was my husband getting his hand in there to put the screws in- but a very easy fix.

Removed the grid. Removed the existing top to bottom wire. Restrung the grid with the new wire. Then, it cut ice just fine-better than new. Note: wire provided is only sufficient to rewire side to side or top to bottom, not both. If you need to do both, you'll need 2. Yes, lots of money for a few feet of wire.

I recieved the replacement part the next day after ordering it. If you are some what mechanicaly talented this repair is very simple. The only tool that is needed is a nut driver. You may want to remove the bracket holding the water solenoid vavlves. Then you can pull them out of your way to remove the 3 screws holding the fan to the bracket. Once you remove the old fan motor just reverce your steps with the new motor. Check that all your screws are tight. Check to make sure that there are no wires in the way of the fan. Don't forget to attach the wire harness and re-attach the solenoid bracket. Ahh nice and quiet like new!

No water at evaporator plate; therefore, no ice

  • Customer: Rand from CORAL GABLES, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

Water was not being drawn from the reservoir to the evaporator plate, so I concluded that the recirculation pump had failed. I first unplugged the machine from electrical power. To improve access to the pump, I removed the cutter grid using a nut driver and squeezing the electric connections to separate them. I also removed the reservoir, first removing the drain pipe by pulling it downward and the using pliers to loosen the thumbscrews until I could turn them by hand. I then thoroughly cleaned both the cutter grid and the reservoir to improve performance once the repair was done. The pump is covered by a solid plastic screen attached by just one nut, which is removed easily with the nut driver. The pump itself is attached with three screws which are easily removed with the nut driver and by an electrical connection which loosens by squeezing. Indeed, Upon examination, i found that the pump shaft was stuck solid and did not turn freely, explaining why it did not work. Replacing the pump, reattaching the three screws and reattaching the electric connection was pretty easy except for the right rear screw behind the pump which was hard to reach to guide the screw without a trick up my sleeve. The trick was to wrap scotch tape around the screw and the nut driver so that I could guide the screw one-handed. Once the screw threaded through a few turns, I jerked back the nut driver, pulling the tape off the screw. I then removed the tape from the nut driver and continued to tighten that screw and the rest, and then reattached the electrical connection. I then reattached the screen, the reservoir and the cutter grid, then plugged my machine back into the electric circuit and was pleased to watch it hum back to life, good as new and performing better than it was before the pump had failed.
