Rotate the clip 90 degrees and there are slots that allow it to be pulled through the freezer wall. It may be really tight due to the adhesive behind the wall of the freezer. The new clips are only $4-8 each depending on where you get them.

    Lookup the part online to make sure it is the same as I describe. This clip will have several vertical "tabs" behind the wall of the freezer. Rotate the clip 90 degrees and there are slots in the freezer wall that allow the clip to be removed. It may be really tight due to the adhesive applied there when the freezer was built. I managed to get mine to start turning by tapping it with a small screw.

Will not make ice


I have a Samsung RF265AABP model. I had the same problem on several occasions. One time the problem was a broken temperature sensor wire on the ice maker. The sensor assembly often gets snagged on the ice tray or scoop or something and falls down, making it more likely to snag, and prevents the ice maker from cycling when frozen. It is quite easy to remove the ice maker once you get the drawer removed from the slides. It is held in place by two plastic clips located near the back of the slides. Pop the clips out, and then lift the drawer out. Pull the front plastic cover off the ice maker, then remove the two screws holding it to the top of the freezer compartment. Slide the icemaker assembly forward about 1/2 inch and it will drop down. Unplug the wiring connector and the ice maker assembly will drop right out. The temperature sensor is located in a flexible rubber like unit that holds the sensor against the plastic water tray. This whole assembly often falls out, and may be found mixed in with the ice.

I fabricated an aluminum bracket from angle stock to hold the temperature sensor assembly in place, and used a small tie wrap to hold the wire to the bracket, up and out of the way after soldering the broken wire of course. The tie wrap is not shown in the photos below. I drilled and countersunk two holes for the 4-40 screws holding the aluminum bracket. The temperature sensor is not shown in the photo, but the wire comes out the right side and crosses over to the left in front of the aluminum bracket.

Ice maker not making ice


Check the shutoff arm, the shutoff arm fails to move upward when the ice bucket is full.

Check the water pressure. If there is not enough pressure, the ice maker will not have enough water to make ice.If water flow pressure is good, check solenoid valve activate and also it's cleaned.

Locate your ice maker, remove the ice bucket. Pull the cover off the end of the ice maker. Locate the holes "V" and "L". Take a paper clip (jump clip) and tape. Straight the clip and put tape in middle. Hold the taped side and insert the clip into "V" and "L". This sends the power to water valve. If water goes into ice-maker, water valve is good. If notreplace solenoid.

Check the freezer temperature. The proper freezer temperature should be around 5 degrees. The warmer it is in the freezer, the more difficult it is to make ice. thanks, helpful?

How do I reattache the DA61-03561 Guide Ice Full lever?


I have the same problem.
You will likely need a new one.
You can verify this as follows.
Remove the Ice catcher (using the lever on the right side).
There is a white Philips new the lower left front of the hollow area.
This screw holds down a long plastic cover.
After the screw is removed the cover can slide 1/2 inch towards the doors, then it can be removed.
Notice the little white hooks on the back that slide onto tabs (for when you replace this).
Reach to the back left of the hollow area - there is a cable that goes to the ice maker.
Free this cable.
On the top of the ice maker there is a little tab.
Press this tab and the ice maker can be slid forward 1/2 inch, then it can be lowered.
On the right side of the ice maker you will see a depression with a square depression in it, with a Philips screw in the center. This is where the Ice Full guide goes. You will likely notice it has broken off.

There are 2 clips that hold the Ice plus on. 1 top left, and 1 on the right side.
Slightly pull up on the front of each clip and remove the controller. most likely behind this you will find a gear that is broken and may fall out of the unit. As usual you can not buy just the gear. Contact Whirlpool for the replacement gear assembly.

Ice Maker


Frig, there is a couple of things you want to check here. First make sure that the fill tube that fills the ice maker is not frozen over. If it is, use a hair dryer or hot water in a baster to thaw it out. Second, check the ejector blades, they should be in the 2:00 position when in standby. If they are in any other position, you probably have a broken retainer clip on the module. The optics check as follows, with the door open 2 flashes with a pause repeatedly. Hold the left side flapper down and the light should stay on steady. If it does this, your optics are good. You can remove this ice-maker by removing the quarter inch screw in back on the right. Remove the harness cover and unplug the harness. The ice-maker will pull straight out. Then you can remove the module cover and check the center gear clips. Catriver..post back
