How do i remove an ice maker from an admiral hmg 62184

Most have a multi-connector electrical plug and a couple of screws that the ice maker hangs on. Disconnect the connector (most squeeze somewhere) and then loosen the screws. You may have to stick your head inside to see them. The water just 'falls' into a trough and thence to the chiller.

Good day,
You will have to remove the ice maker. Usually 2 screws or clips on top and one screw on the bottom, as well as the plug that supplies the electrical power.
Since you'll need a new arm anyway, I would suggest you take the ice maker to any decent sized appliance parts house, and see if they'll pull the the old stub out and install a new control arm.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to replace the whole ice maker.
If you want to see if you can remove the stub yourself, unsnap the front cover. You'll see a semi-solid state type board. It is held in with 3 screws. Remove those, pull the board off, and inspect the area we are talking about. You might be able to get it out, but if not, go back to my first suggestion.

Icemaker not working, the water despencer is ok, so i know there is water coming in ,it is in on position, no ice is stuck,what do i look for? next move

When the ice is frozen hard the ice maker has a heater that activates so the ice can be released, the a rotating mechanism rotates to push the ice out of the ice maker. Then cycle starts again by dispensing water in the tray. A lot of times the ice maker itself is defective and must be replaced. They are just attached by two screws and plugs into the freezer plug.

How do you remove the ice maker in side by side kenmore refrigerator, the kind with dispenser in the door. It won't turn to release the ice, and has a solid block of ice in it now.

Most ice makers hangs on the wall with three screws. two at the top and one at the bottom. Just loosen these screws and the ice maker will lift off the bracket and you can then reach the wiring harness to unplug it.
