I recently purchased a replacement arm rocker "AP4507899 (W10297244) ARM-STRIPR for the ice maker in my thermador refrigerator. As with the OEM, it fits into a groove on the right side. However, it seems to just dangle on the left side where it should attach to the ice maker. Any suggestions?
Answer Hello Steve,
When you install the rocker arm you pull the icemaker model off and then you would loosen the screws for the head of the icemaker. Once you do this there is a groove in the front of the mold that the rocker arm will slide into. Once slide into the groove you push the head back on and make sure that the rocker arm is still in place. Tighten screws back down and reinstall the module.
the right side of my arm-stipr is loose from the unit. I think this is causing the ice to stick in that area. Is this part supposed to snap on somewhere on the right side?
Answer Sue, Yes the Stripper arm has a plastic "tab" on the backside, that "slips" into a slot on the right(back ) side of the icemaker mold assembly. Quite often, if you're careful you can "bend" the stripper out in the middle and insert the tab into the slot. Otherwise you'll need to loosen the four(4) screws in the front of the control head mechanism(under the white plastic cover box, enough to dislodge the two(2) front tabs and re attach the stripper and tighten the screws. Thanks and Good Luck.
