Any suggestions? Is Buddy's Appliance the general consensus these days?

My ice maker started making an "ice waterfall" one day. I tried thawing the ice, cleaning, and resetting the ice maker, but nothing would work. I was about to give in and call But, first I starting reading through their website and came across this article. I was able to determine that the problem was a bad water inlet valve. After some searching online, I was able to locate a diagram for my fridge and see that the valve was mounted on the back-side of the fridge and was easy to access! I found the replacement part online and replaced it myself! No more waterfall!

Your situation may be different, but it's worth doing a little investigation. Yours may be an "easy fix" as well.

Good luck!

Swapping out an ice maker is super easy (on most fridges). If you have any bit of DIYness in you, I would suggest it.
