Hi, i have a ge profile and need to replace the ice maker assy ( wr30x10097 part #ap4321616)
How do I go about this? Is there any screws holding it in place or is it just pull the tab down at the front then uncap the wiring?
Answer Hello Dave,
The icemaker for this unit will be removed by pushing down on the tab and pulling forward to release. There is a panel on the lower left side that you have to remove in order to unplug the icemaker to remove.
No ice production. Good water pressure on door dispenser. No problem with cooling in freezer or fridg. Maintains -2 and 38 degrees. I was told problem is probably a fan in the freezer section. Is there a test procedure for this fan? Are replacement instructions available for this fan?
Thanks for any suggestions
Answer Hi. Make sure the fill tube is not back filled with ice and blocking the water fill. If so then replace the water valve part # WR57X10082. Remove the fill tube part # WR02X12750. Clear the ice with warm sink water and dry the fill tube. Make sure the ice maker part # WR30X10097 is connected tightly. Reset the ice paddle ON/Off. The ice maker fan is part # WR60X10255 if it is not turning. The blade is part # WR60X10264. Thank You.
The ice maker assembly is in a tight space. How do I disconnect after pulling it down from the unit?
Answer Hello Steve. Once the icemaker is removed from the unit, you will see a clip on the connector of the wires. You squeeze the clip and the connector pulls out of the unit where you can remove the icemaker WR30X10097.
It appears the all I have to do to replace icemaker AP4321616 is to depress the pull tab on the top front of the old maker, pull it away from the back of the unit and dissconnect the electrical connector. Then reverse the process with the new one. Is it really that simple or am I missing something??
Answer Bob, You didn't miss it by much, here you go " To remove the icemaker: 1. Remove the Ice bucket. 2. Remove the Phillips-head screw that attaches the front of the wire harness cover. 3. Using a small fl at blade screwdriver, pry the front of the cover out, then pull the cover
towards the front of the refrigerator. 4. Note the routing of the icemaker wire harness, then disconnect the harness. 5. Push in the release tab on the front of the icemaker, then pull the icemaker out of the ice room. Note: When installing icemaker, engage key slots in key tabs before pushing icemaker in place." Thanks and Good Luck
The plastic swing arm broke off near the ice maker and the unit no longer makes ice. I can despence ice through door by adding bagged, small-size ice into tray. Is this repairable or do I replace the ice maker? Any guidance on removing and replacing unit?
Answer Hello Chuck,
There are no replacement parts available for this style ice maker. The only fix for it is to replace the complete ice maker assembly WR30X10097.
To replace the ice maker assembly, remove the ice bin and look at the bottom left side of the opening the bin had occupied. There is a single Phillips head screw that must be removed. Once removed, hook it with a small screwdriver and pull it toward you. It will slide out and off of the clip in the rear. Disconnect the wiring harness and depress the tab at the front center of the ice maker and pull forward at the same time. The installation is the exact opposite.
In order to replace the icemaker on this unit what connections will I have to disconnect? Is there only an electrical plug pack? Is there a water line connection also that will need to be disconnected and reconnected? Thanks
Answer Hi Mark. Turn off the ice maker switch. Then reach in back of the ice maker to un clasp the electrical connecter in by the back wall. There is a center side "lock" that needs to be depressed as you pull the connecter away from the back wall. Un bolt the upper 2-screws and one lower front screw. Replace the ice maker part # WR30X10097. Remember the ice maker will have to reach freezer temperatures in order for the water to fill the ice maker tray for the first time. Thank You.
