Super easy. Loosen 2 screws. Disconnect power line. Take out broken part and plug in new part then slide icemaker back in place and tighten 2 screws. Saved me the $89 service call plus whatever they would have overcharged for the part! And no waiting around for repair guy!
Were these instructions helpful?
First I watched the video. Then I removed the lower motor to get to the ice maker plug (3 screws) then loosen the two screws holding the ice maker up and unplugged it and put the new one in. Put motor back in that covered the ice-maker plug and it was a fix. A perfect match even for a refrigerator over 10 years old. Absolutely the easiest fix I have had on any refrigerator. And had i not watched the video i would of never tried this myself. This is the second time I have used your videos and saved myself hundreds of dollars.. Oh by the way I am over 60 years old and a girl.
The ice maker is held on by two screws. I backed them out,unplugged the unit and simply reversed the procedure. Piece of cake.!!!!!Initially I thought my original problem, w the old unit, was a frozen water line and not the ice maker as there was no water filling the tray. But once I plugged in the new unit the water started filling the ice tray. PS The swing out arm, pops out, once u plug in the unit.
Installation was fairly easy following the directions except for 3 items. 1. You are instructed to remove the strippr from the old ice maked and place it on the new one. The old part does not fit. The molded tabs are different. And WHY would you pay for a new ice maker and have to use old parts? 2. The supplied power cord is 8" longer that the original part. it is quite stiff. I finally tie wrapped it inot an accordian to allow the bucket into the freezer. Even so it hang up on the bucket. If anyone else takes the bucket out they will have difficulty properly getting it back in place. 3. LASTLY, since I had questions about items #1 & 2 above I called the "help" number listed throughout the instructions. After getting through I was told there was no help to be had. Call a technician! Don't be dissuaded by my rant. The job is easy. It could be easier if the cord was the proper length BOTTOM LINR- it works!.
Remove ice collection bin. Turned ice maker off. One screw to remove old ice maker. Unplugged wire harness. Removed water fill tray from old ice maker and put on new ice maker. The one that came with new ice maker was smaller than old one. Put in new ice maker with one screw, then plugged in wire harness. Lastly turned on ice maker & replace ice bin.
Unscrewed 1 screw pulled out and unplugged the old ice maker, placed in the new one put the 1 screw back in, reconnected , turned to on and was done.
Ran diagnostic - claws rotated, water filled spout - but no release of cubes. Assume heating element for cube release defective. 1st symptom was ice jam on bottom of icemaker. Tried blow dryer with no success. Replaced ice maker and began dispensing in 90 minutes.
The repair was very easy, surprisingly easy. It took longer to get the approval and to order the part than it did to install it. One screwdriver and my little flashlight so I could see inside of that old freezer and in a few minutes water was flowing into the ice Maker. A simple fix.
The manufacturer changed the model so it wasn't an exact match. But after some repurchase online w/ the model number of the original ice maker. I found that this was the recommended part , pushed a wire out of the way & bingo we have ice.
unplug refrigerator from electricity or turn off circuit breaker that supplies power to the refrigerator. remove and set aside ice tray and top shelf from freezer compartment. unscrew two hex head screws at top of and holding ice maker in freezer just loosen these screws out about a 1/4 inch, do not remove them. remove the screws holding the motor for the ice screw that moves ice out of tray. pull on the motor and just drop it down out of way. now unplug the ice makers electrical plug from back wall of freezer. There are tabs on each side of this plug that you have to pull out at bottom in order to be able to pull plug out. then lift up on ice maker and clear two screws which hold ice maker in. pull ice maker out of Freezer. put new ice maker in freezer by placing the ice maker"s two screw holes over the two hex head screws and pull ice maker down until it won't pull down any further. make sure its level and then tighten screws firmly. plug electric cord into receptical on back of freezer wall make sure you hear it snap and lock into position. Re-align the ice screw motor in place and insert screws and tighten. Replace ice tray making sure fitting on the back of ice tray meshes with the mechanism on the ice screw motor. replace the top shelf of freezer. turn power to refrigerator on then wait until ice starts to fall into tray. may be more than an hour.
