model # XXXXX XXXXX I was able to take the ice maker apart but was not able to get the cog marked "do not turn manually" out. I have also noticed the status light next tot the on/off switch is not always blinking...
Unplug the unit and remove the icemaker off the wall of the freezer usually 3 screws.
Unless its mounted sideways in which case it will be one screw and a tab.
Stick a pen or flat screwdriver into the side and depress the tab that holds the wires into the icemaker and pull that out.
Pull the white cover off the icemaker sometimes these are tight but it just pops off...no screws.
Remove the three screws out of the module pictured above. And test for ohms across the 2 posts that are attached to the heater on the bottom of the icemaker. Should read near zero or no reading at all. No reading at all is bad.
Again be careful,,test touch that thing to make sure your not going to get burned before you get hold of it.
Yes I agree, a new unit would be the way to go if you could afford it.
That is a complete icemaker. You pull your old one out and put the new one in. No use of old parts except the white cover.
You are welcome....I have to head out to work. If you have questions go ahead and post
I will check here when I get back in.
