My ice maker has been broken since august 2011. I called my son in law, which is very handy, he looked at the broken ice maker, said he had no clue how to fix it, since its computerized. Searched the internet, found part select website, watched videos, read customers feed back, based on information provided, ordered icemaker control and motor assembly (less than $60. 00), Called my son in law, in less than 10 minutes, part was installed.

All of the parts are removed and install through the front of the freezer bin. Remove three screws and unplug the old one. I plugged the old wiring directly in and set the new ice maker on two of the screws for alignment, then screwed in the third screw, tightened everything. Install the arm that checks the status of the amount of ice and waited for it to fill up with ice.

The comments from PartSelect were 50/50 that it would be the motor on the icemaker. We bought the motor which came 4 days leter and followed the installation instructions in the video. We started getting ice about 2 hours after the installation!

Turn the unit OFF - Removed one hex head screw on the bottom of the ice maker, removed the cable cover and unplugged. Removed front cover & Slide the icemaker out. Removed control cover and removed the three phillips head screws to the controller. Put the new controller back on with the three phillips head screws, pushed the cover back over the controller. Plugged the unit back in, then slide it back in the tracks, put the cable cover back on and installed the hex head screw, popped the front cover back on and turned the unit ON - DONE!

Ice Maker Stopped Working

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

My dad and I worked together. The video helped but it was a little more complicated. If you can't find the water supply, remove the filter and water should stop, that's what we did. We had to remove the freezer door for access to the ice maker. It was tricky taking the icemaker off and getting it back on. Replacing the motor was easy, just as shown in the video. Just like others have said, within an hour of the repair the ice starting coming!

Refrigerator not cooling, fan not working

  • Customer: Tom from Woodstock, GA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

After removing two rear plastic panels, (very easy). The fan is easily accessable. Two more screws to remove the fan brace and remove three wires from the fan and its out. Reverse the process and its finished. The propellor is not part of the fan motor order and you can remove the old propellor and put on new motor (easy). One step that is not accounted for is the removal of a flexable plastic "nut" on the fan shaft. This piece holds and connects the fan to the fan brace. You will understand this when you compare the new fan with the old and see the plastic "nut" sleeve on the old fan. Simply pull it off and put on new motor shaft (it simply slides on and off the shaft).

Water overflow from ice maker turns ice in tray into block

  • Customer: Patrick from Las Vegas, NV

Symptom: The ice maker was making ice, but sometimes the water would run and overflow at the entrance of the ice maker, spilling water into the ice catch and turning all of the ice into a huge block. The problem was that the liner of the ice maker had started to flake off, but only on part of the unit. When water would flow into the ice maker, the exposed part would freeze quickly, creating an ice dam and block the rest of the water from flowing into the other trays, thus overflowing. Solution: A new ice maker unit was ordered online, then after watching the video on how to fix, the process was straightforward and fairly simple. There is one screw to remove, 2 to loosen, and a wire harness to remove to remove the ice making unit. Then the ice full bar was removed from the old unit and put onto the new unit and the entire assembly replaced inside the freezer. The most difficult part of the job was loosening the screws by touch as there isn't a lot of room to see.

Icemaker not making ice

I had to make sure the electronic beam was working properly, which it was (steady beam if you press in the side plastic flap. I also had to make sure the water valve for the icemaker was working properly as well, which it was by switching the lead wires on the valve (water dispenser wire to ice maker valve, and hitting water dispenser paddle and hearing water flow to the ice maker). After that, I knew it was the icemaker motor. Removed three screws with a socket, disconnected wire harness (had to use pliers to pull it apart), pulled out entire icemaker unit. Loosened three screws on motor control unit to remove it from icemaker unit, then inserted new motor control unit and re-screwed the 3 screws. Then I pu tthe entire icemaker unit back in the freezer, connected wire harness, re-inserted three screws and was finished. I then waited for one hour, went to check ice maker and I had ice cubes forming in the tray.

Ice maker began making large block of ice, although still made cubes, bur required emptying weekly.

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.
