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.
How do you take the stripper arm off?
Answer Hi Gerard. You carefully start at the front ice maker cover. After removing this, then it will access you to the screws that remove the control module assembly. While removing these parts , pay attention to your part as it loosens from the back.From this point it is pretty self explainable and assembly is removal and replacement of the new part. This part # is W10297244. Also remember to use silicone grease lubricant on pivoting contacts. This part # is [AP4113793.Thank you.
What causes the ice to get stuck upright in the tray or against the flap? My arm stripper may have the far right tooth broken 1/2. (8 1/2 teeth)
Answer Hello Jay. If the arm is broke it can cause the ice to get stuck. Also a bad water filter 4396508 or water valve W10408179 not letting in enough water can cause this as well. Hope this helps.
