Ice maker will not stop making ice with arm up. Pretty sure it's a micro-switch. I've already got the switch but before I tear something up I need to know how to get the cover off the unit. Can ya help? Does it just slip off? I'm afraid to pull to hard until I know that's how it comes off.... Thanks

This morning I awoke to a puddle of water by my refrigerator below the ice/water output. I opened the freezer door to find water running out of the control box area (front, top) of the ice maker. After turning off the water and cleaning up the mess, I turned my attention to the icemaking unit and found that the bottom of the unit was burning hot!!! (I am the proof). Will I need to replace the whole unit or are there any particular parts that may be failing? I have since removed the unit from inside the freezer and await your advice. Sincerely, Rick H.

Icemaker goes through its cycle but no water coming in to make ice, any thoughts. I did change the water valve but didn't help.

A while ago my ice maker was spilling water into the freezer every time I got water out of the door and filling my freezer with ice so I replaced the water valve about three months ago and now my ice maker is not getting any water to fill the tray but it goes through its cycle and the arms rotate about every 30 minutes like they are pushing out ice but the ray never got filled could the hold switch be the problem or would it be something else.

In response to your question as to what the trouble was with the hold switch: I found that the Normally Closed contacts were resistive. Reading any where from over seven Kilo ohms to just a few. I had also wondered if there was something causing too much current to flow in that circuit; like, maybe the heater. The icemaker never "called" for any water. I could manually fill the icemaker tray, and it would freeze and eject the frozen ice cubes. I replaced the dual water valve because it had gotten kinda sluggish when I drew chilled water. When that didn't resolve the icemaker problem, I removed it (icemaker)and discovered that the stop switch was defective again. Thank you for your reply. Kenneth
