Are there instructions available to tell me how to replace the icemaker kit for this refrigerator? If so, where can I find them? I'd like to review them before I decide to buy the part, to see if it's something I do myself.
Answer Greg, It's a pretty simple procedure. Loosen the 2 screws just above the ice maker mold, slide the component up off the mounting screws, disconnect the wire harness and slide the ice maker out carefully, reverse the procedure to install. Here's the instructions from the manual, "ICE MAKER FOR SIDE BY SIDE MODELS The automatic Ice Maker is mounted in the freezer compartment. It is attached to the freezer compartment’s left wall with two screws and can be removed for servicing." here's the part you should order for your refrigerator

Our icemaker no longer makes crushed ice even though the "crush" button on the outside of the fridge is lit in green. It continues to make cubed ice whether cube or crush is selected. What part(s) need to be replaced so we can have crushed ice?
You will want to pull the ice bin out and check the solenoid to make sure that it is in the down position and not stuck up. The solenoid will be next to the auger in the square opening. If the solenoid arm is up then using a screw driver and pop it down as it is frozen in place. If that checks ok then most likely the solenoid.
When ice maker actuator is activated, round door activates, ice door in ice tray releases, but ice does not flow down. It appears that auger is not turning. This happened just after I replaced water actuator, which required removal of circuit board.
You will want to pull the control board and make sure that there are no pinched wires. Also check to make sure that there is power getting to the auger motor. If everything is working then it sounds like the auger motor may be faulty. If there is power to the auger then replace auger assembly.
