No ice cubes from the icemaker
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.

Ice maker would not release ice cubes
My Ice maker would not release ice cubes, it thought the ice bin was full. So I got on You Tube and looked up how to videos. Partselect videos were the best that I found and the prices were low also. The whole repair took about 15 minutes.

The repair went just as simple as the video on the web site. Parts came really fast. replaced in less than 15 minutes. i thought the icemaker unit was the bad part but after gettin info from this site it told me waht to check first and i found that the emitter boards were bad. Thanks for saving me the money on buying the wrong parts. also bought parts the folowing week to repair my wifes kitchenaid mixer.

Ice was made intermittently, and then no ice at all!
My ice maker about six months ago started to ice make very intermittently and eventually stopped all together. The emiitter no matter what I did was giving me two flashes then a pause, over and over again. I purchased the emitter kit and with a Phillips screwdriver in about five minutes my ice maker kicked the sulinoid on and ice was already started!!! Fast and easy repair!!!
