Just to clarify the previous post about taking the ice maker motor housing apart. (And not turning the dial with your hand as it clearly states on the front of the dial....you want to disassemble first)
Lift arm to ice maker unit to turn it off. Then I actually turned off the refrigerator and then unplugged it. Probably a good idea since you have to disconnect the wire harness to the ice maker.
Unscrewed, but did not entirely remove the two screws on the upper portion (on side wall of freezer unit) just enough so you can slip the unit out.
Completely remove the bottom screw that fits on the bottom side of the ice maker. Once this screw is out, lift the icemaker up and out and disconnect the wire harness to remove the unit entirely.
Remove the decorative cover; comes off easily by hand.
Remove the three screws on the front panel of the motor housing by using phillips screw driver.
Using a very small flat head screw driver, carefully push-in on one side and manuever the white plastic fitting (top right corner of plate) back down into it's opening in order to lift off/remove the front plate.
Once front plate was off I then took a miniature phillips screw driver and removed the two screws holding the small chrome housing (motor w/ two orange wires) off. This little gadget has a small round white gear shaft attached to it which is in sync with larger wheel that states do not turn by hand.
Once this chrome timer/motor thingey part was off (did not remove it entirely--left the wires attached), I manually and carefully turned the small end of the larger wheel (sorry don't know the name of this part) and I reset it so the lever on the reverse side of the panel was just about to snap to its' place against the small white hook looking thing. Since I'm the novice, the only other way for me to explain it is that the end of the piece that the ejector arm fits into (which is half moon shaped on one end) this was set so the full part of the moon was facing left and the flat side facing right and this put the ejector arms/teeth at what was previously called level--but the ejector teeth were actually at about the 2 o'clock position and not the 3 o'clock position.
Once I had it set so the half moon was set in this position, I then put the chrome housing piece back in it's place being very careful to fit it and it's attached white gear piece in sync with the larger gear teeth on the larger wheel.
Reinstall the two small screws using the miniature screw driver.
Fit the panel back in place making sure the small white "holder" piece fits back in its' little hole and then reattach by reinstalling the three phillips head screws. Be careful here because you are putting the plate with the moon shaped end back on and you need to make sure the ejector arm is fit back in this half moon slot which you've repositioned (as previously stated).
Put the decorative cover back on.
Since you haven't put the unit back in the freezer yet, check your cube tray for dirt or calcium build up. If you have calcium build up I have used (in the past, but not on this unit) a highly acidic toilet bowl cleaner in the tray w/ a toothbrush and it eats the calcium deposits. Rinse the cube tray very well and don't get the wire harness wet (tricky, but can be done).
If your paint is chipped in the cube tray then don't even try to remove the calcium because it's time for a new cube tray.
Reinstall the unit in the freezer. Attaching harness first and then fitting ice maker unit back in place. Tighten side screws back and then reinstall the bottom screw to the bottom of ice maker.
Leave arm up on ice maker unit.
Plug in refrigerator unit.
Turn refrigerator control back to "ON" position and set to normal settings.
Put arm down on ice maker unit.
My unit immediately filled with water before I even put the arm down, water then froze and then dumped ice like normal. Maybe I got lucky?!!
I also didn't open the freezer for nearly 1 hour to make sure the teeth were still in 2 o'clock position and then at the 2 hour mark I checked to see if it had dumped and right at that point it started to cycle and push the cubes out. I watched it and marveled and did a happy dance...oh, yea!
Hope this helps someone else. I may be listed as an apprentice DIYer, but after 30 yrs of being little Miss Maintenance on my own rental properties, it sure feels good to save some money at my own home and, of course, anytime!
