icemaker motor If your ice maker won’t produce or push out any ice, you may need to replace the icemaker motor. Find a new icemaker motor at http://www.everyappliancepart.com/Category/Icemaker-Parts.

You’ll need to disconnect the icemaker from it’s harness wiring and remove it from your refrigerator (unscrew a few screws).

Warning! Before attempting to work on any appliance, make sure that all power (electricity) and utilities (water and gas) have been turned off and/or disconnected on the appliance. Read More 
Once, the icemaker is disconnected, you will also need to pull out both ends of shut off arm from ice maker. Pull off the cover and remove the three screws that hold the motor in place. Line up the new motor and turn the ice ejector until the motor sits flush in the casing.

Replace the screws and cover and  insert the flat end of shut off arm into the water fill cup. Reconnect the ice maker to wire harness , all screws and water tube fitting sleeve in water fill cup.

Use your icemaker or refrigerator’s model number to find a new part for your icemaker. Look for your model number on your Refrigerator in the following places:

  • Inside wall of either food or freezer door
  • Cabinet door jamb
  • Behind crisper drawer
  • Behind the kickplate
  • Back of refrigerator
