Ice maker won't eject ice, just goes snap, snap, snap. Do you have a schematic or wiring diagram for this appliance Model # XXXXX wh

Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 32 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs under my belt.

This is a common issue, the heater in the icemaker mold has failed so when it is trying to harvest the cubes they are not being heated loose from the mold so the motor on the gear just slips thus the snap snap noise .

oh to stop the noise just turn the icemaker off for now!

Is it necessary to buy the entire kit? Can I just buy the heat element? Also is there an electrical schematic available?

The unit only comes as a complete unit ,it is not designed by the manufacture to be worked on just replaced .

And for that same reason they do not supply a wire diagram .
