Remove the ice tray with auger. You will then see the actual ice maker.
There will be 1 white X head screw beneath it on the left side about 2 inces from the bottom of the tunnel. Remove that & then remove the white panel by moving the front of it enough to clear the side & it slides out toward you.
You will see where the cord connects to the fridge. Disconnect that.
At the top of the ice maker is a white tab, press that downward & pull the unit toward yourself to remove.
Reverse the process when replacing your new unit.
If you have GE Service do this, that will set you back almost $400, $65 for the service call, $200 for labor and $160ish for the icemaker. Search for part # IMC701 and save yourself some $$$.

Subzero 690 ss icemaker making a clicking sound why


If the noise is coming from the ice maker head itself. Then it sounds like the gear is slipping. They are plastic and it is very common for them to crack or break. Most ice makers are the same. Click Here to see a post on a Whirlpool ice maker with a broken gear.

Good Luck From David at refrigerator repair.

My ice maker is not dumping the ice it just freezes and stays in there help


You need to replace the ice maker . It is a lot less time consuming to replace the ice maker , than to try and repair it . But , if you want to try , you have a bad thermostat , or broken gear . If the gear type , pull the cover off the ice maker , and you will see the motor running ( small gear ) , but not turning the large gear . In this case , replacing the large gear , would be the best thing , instead of replacing the whole ice maker .

Samsung Refrigerator makes ice, but then quits.


I have this same thing happening, also. I have not been able to find a solution to this issue, however. The ejector blades push against the ice, apparently a gear pops loose with a loud clicking sound and the heater either does not work or never turns on. I end up killing the breaker to thr refrig,`removing the icemaker, letting it wrm up dumping the ice and putting it back in.

A clunking sound like ice cubes dropping. No ice maker in fridge.


there is a damper door assy that allows the cold from the freezer to the refrigerator,this may be sticking from shipping foam or tape that has never been removed from shipping, the install team almost allways rush and never really install correctly no do they explain how to use and care for the appliance, so check these things. in addition there is a know issue of the refrigerant lines having a slight restriction in them thus causing a autable sound coming from the evaporator and capillary line,this is located in the frezzer and will sound like its coming from all over. call bake the service co. & have them remove & reinstall the evaporator.

Two issues


Well here is How I fixed My French Door Ice Maker, It made the same loud crashing sounds, and seldom put out much ice. To the point that it made no ice at all.

First, Make sure you can get water out of the front, if not, your water lines may be clogged.

The second thing you can do is hit the secret RESET button on the upper front side of the ice maker. See my first image for it's location, it is a soft rubber button.

The third thing.. In my case the reset button worked for a little bit. But eventually stopped. I had to remove the ice maker, and found that that several rows of ice had gotten stuck. The swinging arm that smacks the ice out would just strip the gears banging that ice to no avail. So opening the ice maker up and cleaning it out helped. I also cleaned the sensor contact with some alcohol. It is a thin metal strip close to where the gearing housing is. This I believe is ultimately where the problem starts. It allows the trays to get overfilled, and the ice can't be released. Once I cleaned out the tray of stuck ice, cleaned the sensor, plugged it back in, and hit the reset button once more, It was making loads of ice once again. If this fails, you can get a complete new ice maker online, I found a vendor on eBay selling it for a reasonable $80. You can use my pictures to see how to disassemble for repair ore replacement. My fridge by the way is the RF267AARS.

the part number is: DA97-05554A

It works with the following refrigerators
Samsung RF267AABP Samsung RF267AABP/XAA Samsung RF267AARS Samsung RF267AARS/XAA Samsung RF267AASH/XAA Samsung RF267AAWP/XAA

Ice Maker not flipping


May very well be a stripped gear in the drive unit. Unplug ice maker and remove mounting screws. Out of the freezer remove front cover and inspect drive gears for damage. Replacement gears should be available through a dealer for you make and model number.

Ice Maker not making Ice


That plastic piece it part of the ice maker module. It's broken. Will need to replace that module and ice maker thermostat (bimetal) for best repair. If you do this repair you will also need food grade silicone grease (glob) to make a good contact between the thermostat and mold. It this sounds to complicated then just replace the whole icemaker and that will fix your problem.

Ice maker not dumping ice


Make sure the freezer is at least 17 degrees or colder (colder is better). If you have a square cover on the end of the ice maker see if you can pull it off and press on the gear face (don't turn just press). That may clean the electrical contact springs and get it working again. Basically if ya got water, 17 degrees or colder you will get ice. Other than that the ice maker motor module is likely bad (broken gear, etc.). Pretty common.
