The ice mold seems to be leaking from the left side, dripping down the left side of the ice bin and down through the ice dispenser on the door. Not sure why this suddenly started happening. Also the bail arm that goes up and down to tell the icemaker when it is full won't click down into the icemaking mode. I appreciate any help.

Yes, your ice maker is bad, seen that many times on my service calls.

Here's another member that had this same problem, and the new ice maker fixed it:

Here's the ice maker for your model you can order:

This video shows you how to replace it:


Let us know how it goes.

Thanks Jake! Ordered the part you recommended and installed it using the video. We'll still be wanting a new fridge in the near future but this was an easy and inexpensive fix in the meantime to keep us with ice (we live in Florida). Appreciate your expertise!
