I don't understand. What parts to buy? How did you come up with that amount? Would I even be able to put it together?
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
if you click on the link in above post you will be directed to the page with the part on it, they get $85.88 for a whole new ice maker, I'm not sure if you can put it together or not are you handy? I thought you wnted to fix this yourself/ if not you need to call a service man to fix this .I'm just telling you what the problem is and you need to replace the ice maker to fix it. thanks Bryan

I must be dumb. The page you sent has parts. I do not see an icemaker for $85.88. It is not on that page. What is the part number I need to buy. Please look at what you sent me and see what I am talking about.
