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.

My Kitchen Aid Icemaker has stopped ejecting the ice. There is ice in the bottom. We have removed the unit to thaw. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Answer Hello Steve, from your description you will need to replace the icemaker. If you found this icemaker with your model number then this will be the correct replacement. Thanks

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!

Remove the ice maker it will not make ice.
You will want to check to make sure that there is no ice that would be caught holding the icemaker arm up. If it is not then the most likely cause for not making ice would either be no water getting to the icemaker or the icemaker is faulty.
I have to replace this ice maker because the plastic wheel completely broke off. Is this common for this model of ice maker as I do not want to have to continue replacing this ice maker
The icemaker module has been redesigned on the new icemaker and has been made with a lower torque motor which should alleviate the pins on the gear breaking off and the gear falling off.
