My freezer ending in 20512WW, bottom freezer ice maker, is not in use and I would like to have the maker removed. Can someone come out to my home and remove it please. It takes up room I would rather use for ice trays. There is also a wire on the back side of the ice maker inside the freezer that if you should touch it, you get a shock. It is exposed. Please contact me @ 630-204-8407 or e-mail. email@example.com. It was purchased at Home Depot in Oak Brook, IL. and is still under warranty.

Re: LG bottome freezer/refrigerator
The ice maker is plugged on the back wall of the freezer. There are only 3 phillip screws holding it in place. Not a hard task if you have a handy person in the area.
Unplug the unit, remove the screws, and then unplug the unit and remove it.

The ice maker fan is located in the freezer and is part of the Grille Assembly ( LG part Name) Which is the removable back panel in the freezer. If you have an error code on the display such as ER/IF the fan is not rotating due to failure or ice accumulation in the fan blade. If you have no error code and the ice maker is not producing ice 2 things to check are...1. On the bottom of the ice maker there is a Test Button. Press and hold the button and the ice maker should rotate, Dump ice cubes and refill with water. If the ice maker does not cycle replace the ice maker. 2. Check freezer temperature. Freezer Temperature must be below 15 degrees to make ice. Ideally freezer temp should be 0 Degrees. If you have warm temps in the freezer there may be a sealed system issue preventing proper cooling.

Here is a tip that I wrote about the reasons why ice makers do not work.
Make sure your ic maker is empty. On the bottom of the ice maker is a small button. Watch the plastic fill tube and hold the botton in. Let the ice maker cycle anmd see if the water over shhoots rne ice maker. If it does, trim 1/8 of an inch off of the tube with a raxor knife on an angle = / this should take care of your problem.
The ice fan is frozen. It is located behind the rear panel inside the freezer drawer. I had the same problem with an LG refrigerator in November 2008 that was fixed under warranty. (There is a Kenmore model that is made by LG.) They replaced the fan and housing, and the panel duct assembly (both because a design revision provided a way to drain the water that was freezing the fan), and the main controller board (presumably because there was a new defrost program, but also because of the Energy Star settlement.) If your refrigerator is out of warranty, you can remove the freezer drawer to get at the panel behind it. Remove and defrost the fan housing. Drill some small holes in the bottom of the fan housing for drainage. Put it back together and see if that solves the problem.
You will want to make sure it stays in the off position or it will constantly cycle thinking it is making ice and burn out the water valve coil. If you are definitely not going to hook it up removing the ice maker will accomplish the same thing and give you a few more inches of storage. Eric
