Hi my name is Bill and today I’m going to
show you how to replace the ice maker assembly in your refrigerator. The reason why you might do this is because
your assembly has failed or because you would rather change the entire assembly rather than
an individual piece. For this repair all you’ll need is a 1/4 inch
nut driver. Warning before doing any repairs please disconnect
your power source. For this demonstration I’ll be using an electrolux
refrigerator. This is a side by side fridge. Keep in mind though that your fridge may be
a little bit different but the same technique should still apply. Okay so to get to the ice maker we’re going
to open up the freezer door. Our ice maker is going to be all the way in
the back here. so we’re going to take out this plastic panel and we’re going to take out our ice holder. Now to get the ice maker out we’re going to
take out two screws that are holding it in. So i’m going to use my 1/4 inch nut driver
to remove both screws. And we don’t have to unscrew it all the way. Unscrew it part way and then just release
or lift up on the ice maker and we can pull it out a little bit and now we have to undo
the wire harness. and we can remove the ice maker. Now grab your oem replacement ice maker. If you don’t have one already you can order one
from our online store. Now we’ll install it starting with the wire
harness. we’ll plug that back in and the wire harness
is plugged in and now you can turn it and adjust it so that we can slide these two tabs
right on top of the screws again. Once we’ve done that you can tighten them
up. Now we can replace our ice shelf and
we can replace this plastic shelf as well and now your repair is complete. Finally don’t forget to plug in your appliance. If you need to replace any parts for your
appliances you can find an oem replacement part on our website PCApplianceRepair.com Thanks for watching. And please don’t forget to like, comment,
