Narrowed it down to the motor for the rotor that feeds the ice into the
chute thingy. So, the next question becomes is that something that a

If you are handy, look over the icemaker and see if you can tell how stuff
fits together. Look for screws, moldings etc.. and see if you can
figure out how it comes apart. That would determine if you need to hire
I was once trying to fix a Smith Corona portable (typewriter) and in
the process I took off all the cover parts, and still couldn't see the
problem. So I took it to a typewriter repair guy, and he was mad that
I had taken off the covers. I said, "You don't have to put the covers
back on. Just fix the backspace key that doesn't work." I don't think
I had even brought the covers with me.
But he wouldn't do it. So I took it home and fiddled a little longer
and one of the stiff wires that connect things fell apart at one end,
in the middle of its loop. I guess it had already bent or cracked,
and its effective length was no longer as short as it should have
been. So I was able to use a heavy wire hanger to make a part for it.
I hear they aare going to phase out wire hangers. BEtter stock up,
