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 https://www.aggielandappliancerepair.com/. 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.

More than 2 or less than 2? Paid with Credit card? You may have an additional 1 year warranty through the credit card. Contact them and they may have a service they want you to use.

Otherwise, I agree with CrazyAgE, if you're sure it's the icemaker, search to find the replacement part number and swap the whole thing. Youtube videos will probably even guide you step by step. The parts to replace the whole thing would be similar to a truck roll by a service company.

I like Nick's Appliance repair. Real nice guy and great communication by text of appointment, when they are headed your way, etc.

Is Nick's the same as Advanced Appliance Repair?
