    Anybody ever changed an icemaker on a side by side refrigerator? I did earlier and the change was easy enough just wondering if there is anything else I’m missing? Is it just a waiting game now? Read and watched a few You Tube vids and some say ice in 90 mins and some say up to 24 hours??? My other (when working) made ice pretty darn fast.

    Yep. Make sure you turn the water back on.

    just did it a month or so ago.....I think mine takes 40 minutes to cycle. Not sure if the first batch was that quick, but when you hook it back up make sure water feeds into the trays. As stated, gotta turn the water back on :) !!

    Water is on and I’ve gotten water from the spout on the freezer door so all should be good there. No frozen lines, etc... Haven’t noticed if any has ran into the trays yet? It usually makes a sound like water being sprayed when it runs into the trays and I haven’t heard anything yet. Been around 2 hours since I finished hooking it up.

    That must be a nice side by side. Never seen one with a refrigerator on it. Is it a Honda or what?:p:p:rolleyes:

    Lol. Wish I could afford a side by side! Anywho, I have a few ice cubes now so I must have done something right.

    Our icemaker quit for about a year and then all of a sudden started working again. Wife couldnt believe it...sent me a pic of ice in freezer while I was at work.

    When my ice maker broke, I YouTubed it, and low and behold, there was a guy fixing the same make and model. All it was was the temp sensor popped out of the housing. Apparently, it can’t sense the temp dangling. Would never have even seen it because of where it’s located without the YouTube video. Literally a 30 second fix that a “repairman” would likely have misdiagnosed, and charged me $150 plus parts.

    I bought it off Amazon for like $58. Was just like the one I replaced, fit the same screws, etc... The reason I replaced the other is because the water would literally just run right through it and all down into my freezer. Could have been something simple but at least I’m not out too much money. It took me a while to replace it. For a few weeks I’d just buy a bag of ice and dump it in the tray and we could still get crushed ice through the door.
