How to remove Icemaker from Gi7fvcxwy02

4 posts in this topic

Hi there! I am interested if anyone out there has had to remove an ice maker from the new French door Whirlpool Gold fridge. It is the unit that sits sideways on the ceiling in front of the fresh food section. This unit DOES NOT have the optic boards on the side walls. The opening to the Icemaker cabinet is much narrower in height than the front /sideways mounted icemakers on the units with optic boards. All I see is one screw, and it does nothing to get the cabinet apart. Anyone ran up on this yet?

Yea they are a little tricky. I think I took the water filter cover off and there was one or 2 screws up there. Then you have to pop the cover down. I think I pried from inside the water filter area. I also think the it is only held by a few tabs upfront. I've only done one and called tech support which wasn't a huge help. Once that said it is held up by tabs, I think I was able to figure it out. That whole roof piece comes down. I wish I could be more help but it's been awhile since I did it. A few pics might help to refresh my memory. I think I may even have a handout on those somewhere.

Thanks Bryan.

The Samurai came to the rescue. This is the first if this type Icemaker I had to deal with. A tip -if you ever come across changing one of these, install the Icemaker all the way to the right in the holder. If it is too far left, the cover will not fit back in its place.

Thanks Samurai for the Setvice Manuals. They definitely helped out. You were right-this one was very tricky!
