Part Information

Ice maker AEQ72910412 includes the ice mold and the control device. The ice maker receives water from the water inlet valve and then holds the water in the ice mold until the water freezes solid. It then automatically ejects the ice and refills to continue the process until the ice storage bin is full.

If your ice cubes seems small, it could be time for a new water filter. You can find your filter here.

Safely store any food that could deteriorate while the power is off and unplug the refrigerator when installing this part. Wear work gloves to protect your hands.

Much quieter than the original. Exact fit.
March 02, 2021

The new one arrived in a couple days, and for me was simple to install, although a little finicky and some trial & error but it does fit exactly and works great. 'A #2 Phillips screwdriver and some electrical tape is all you need. A magnetic probe is nice to have if you drop one of the mounting screws inside the ice tray (don't ask me how I know). It took me just under two hours from moving the fridge out to moving it back in place. 'Look over the new ice maker and notice that you don't have to remove all of the screws on the old ice maker or the door panel. 'Unplug the refrigerator and turn off the water supply to it. 'The best way is to remove the smaller inside door panel containing the ice dispenser motor, with the old ice maker still attached (hereinafter just "panel"). 'install the new ice maker, being very careful to keep all the wires & harnesses tucked out of the way so that the back is flush against the panel. Be sure the bottom of the ice maker frame is above (resting on) the lip on the panel. The screw holes must line up properly. 'Fasten the ice maker to the panel and check that the ice bucket fits and removes easily. If not, the ice maker may not be up fully on the panel lip or not totally flush against the panel. 'Tip the panel so that the ice maker is up under the water spigot and be sure it is all the way up and back, and finally that the panel & ice maker is back in the door all the way so that the ice maker door latches properly, and the panel mounting screw holes line up, fasten panel screws. 'Be sure the ice maker switch is on, replace the ice bucket. Turn the water back on and plug the refrigerator in. The refrigerator won't start immediately- this is normal. Your settings should have remained. Whew! My new ice maker is much quieter and makes ice quickly after initial startup. The ice maker has to get back down to freezing, so it may take several hours to make the first batch. After that, it is more rapid. I threw out the first bucket of ice, just as a precaution to "flush " the system before using any ice.

$300 is too much, not so easy to install.

Took two hours to remove and replace, standard tools does the job. I had a hard time unplugging the old one.

Incorrect part

Plugs are wrong for this fridge. Online person said no problem will work. I told them it probably wouldn't. They said I was wrong so I ordered and then returned it.

Make sure you get the correct part. There are two listed. You can tell the difference by the electrical connector. White or yellow. Mine is white. There is a good video on the internet on how to replace. Make sure to tape the smaller electrical connector so it stays put during installation
