2-3 years

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

It made ice cubes without problem up until about a month ago

Often the icemaker just fails on that unit. First press the test button on the upper right side of the front of the icemaker. See if it starts to rotate, if not it is a bad icemaker for sure. If it does then see if it fills with water. If it does not after it has stopped rotating just pour some water in the mold on the icemaker and see if it makes the batch. If it does not replace the icemaker on the unit. If it does then you need to check the fill tube to the icemaker to see if it is frozen.
