The fridge was too warm while the freezer was cold

First I called my friend Robert in Kissimmee, Fl to have an idea regarding the problem because I had never serviced a fridge before. Then he suggested that I check with PartSelect on the Web. Then PartSelect repair videos showed me everything. I followed step-by-step but the problem persisted. I finally realized that the airflow conduit between the freezer and the fridge was clogged with ice. I then proceeded to remove the ice underneath the coil on the aluminum cover and Bingo. The problem was in fact the ice. Well, I only spent $33 dollars for the non-necessary Bimetal Defrost Thermostat. I learned a great deal from that repair.

I have a side-by-side fridge/freezer, so taking out the icemaker is a bit more tricky than the video shows. I just unscrewed a nut in the back right of the mechanism (this nut is holding the icemaker in place as well as the plug cover). Once that was off it slid out pretty easy. Because the freezer is so narrow, it's a bit difficult to get it back in, but all told the repair took me about 20 minutes. Replacing this part fixed the icemaker immediately and we're so glad to have our on demand ice back! Ladies, don't be afraid of a little appliance repair!

Researched the problem on the internet. Identified the icemaker control and motor assembly as the most likely culprit. Ordered a new one. Arrived in two days. Installed it in about 15 minutes. Had ice 3 hours later.

I removed the ice maker, which consist of three 1/4 inch screws to install the water fill cup and bearing. One must loosen the front panel of ice maker to install the fill cup which consist of two standard screws, slide forward enough to install new fill cup. The removal of the Icemaker control was simple, using #2 phillips screwdriver and three screws. Unplug the control and install the new one, replace the three screws and cover. Reinstall the ice maker and within one hour cubes were dropping in the bin. I saved a lot of money repairing myself, which more than covers the shipping cost. Shipping was fast, two days.

I removed the ice maker unit completely from the freezer, following a Utube repair video that I found. I originally thought it was just the control board that was defective, because on examination, found a burned-out copper trace on the board, as well as a burned-out plastic connection point. Installing the new parts was a breeze. This icemaker is pretty foolproof, with plastic tabs that line up with the housing. a matter of lining up the screw holes was all that was necessary. Only problem I had was attaching a plastic cover that shields the electrical connection from the water. Once all was installed, I had to wait overnight for the icemaker to make ice. We've had ice ever since! Thank you Partsselect for very courteous and fast service!

Icemaker stoped making ice.

There are two tabs that hold the icemaker to the rails it sits on. I use a small screwdriver and pushed the tabs up to release the tray and slid the Ice maker out. the cover over the control motor just pops right off. Then I removed three screws from the control motor pulled it off and put the new on, replaced the screws and put the cover back on and slid the icemaker back into the rails. I shut the freezer door and within the five minutes it took me to put my tools back in the garage, it was dumping ice. Very easy to fix. You do not need to remove the screws that hold the icemaker to the tray.
