The Ice Maker has failed. Symptoms are:
The ice tray seems to be out of synch in that it starts to tilt, yet the drive motor continues to run and I hear a noise that sounds like a "clicking sound" as though gears are not meshing. The other observation is I don't have any water coming in to fill the tray. I have good water pressure and water is streaming very nicely when filling a container from the door spicket. The power switch is turned on. My other question is how do I remove the old ice maker assembly? The right side seems to come loose from it's mounting, however, the left side is not coming loose from it's mounting. How do I get the left side to release so I can remove it from the refrigerator? Thanks. Desert Guy
ANSWER Desert guy,
To remove the icemaker there will be a screw in it that holds it in place. This screw will need to be remove to pull the unit out. As for what would cause the issue. It is most likely caused by a faulty icemaker in which the motor has become to weak to turn the tray.
