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.
How do you remove ice maker AP4321616 ? It makes ice but leak a little water witch builds up over time.....
Answer Hi G. If the water valve gets sediment in the mechanical part of the valve, then it stays open even if it is not energized electrically from the ice maker. Part # WR57X10082. Make sure the house water supply is not kinked. Thank You.
The icemaker gets stuck and keeps on clicking like a gear is locking up. What can I do?
