How do I remove the ice maker? It seems to be held in by something. Where is the retainer, it jiggles, is loose but will not come out
Answer There is a screw under the bottom on the right back corner, that will need to be removed. Once removed there are locking tabs on each side that will need to be released. Once released the icemaker will slide forward.

No it just stopped making ice. Tray was empty which is why we thought maybe ice in tube. We also added water to tray to see if it would cycle, ice evaporated.
Answer Hello Dean! If you filled the ice maker ice mold with water and the ice maker did not eject any ice, you will need to make sure that the freezer is cooling properly. The temp should be 0-5 degrees. If the freezer is cooling properly, you will need a new ice maker. The part number is 2198597. Thanks!

I need to replace the icemaker assembly, but am having trouble separating the wiring harness connection to remove the old assembly. Any suggestions?
Answer Hello Jack. You need to unplug the wiring connection from the head of the icemaker. There is a clip you press in and the wire connector pulls out of the head of the unit.

Water is free flowing in ice maker even in the off setting, had to shut off water supply.
Answer Hello Marty,
This can be a set of contacts stuck in the icemaker assembly or a bad water valve. If you pull the unit out and turn the water on, then unplug the refrigerator, if the water stops replace the icemaker 4317943. If it continues to run, replace the water valve W10408179.
