I have a RF265AABP refrigerator and a rubber peace was knocked off of the Ice Maker. Now the I maker tends to over flow or something so that the ice tends to end up growing into a large block. I can't get down easily to see where it might go and would love a parts breakdown view so I know where to put it back.

6 I fixed this. The rubber piece I think you're referring to... does it have a rectangular opening in it? If so, this piece has a plastic bracket and a wire w/ white rectangle fits inside that waxy piece.. So its a three-piece part. Looking from underneath, it fits between the ice maker and the tray.

4 The white plastic part on the end of the wire is a temperature sensor, and it fits into the flexible rubber part, and is pressed against the ice cube tray to sense when the water has frozen. It fits with the widest flat surface against the ice cube tray. The wire exits thru a small slot in the flexible part.

4 Here is a link to a service manual for that model. Note that the manual itself is written in *EXTREMELY* poor English and is almost unreadable in some sections. However, the service manual does include a parts breakdown. Incidentally, I have had the same problem. There is a cheap plastic cover (called the sensor cover) that is probably broken. It supports the rubber part (called the sensor fixer) that fell down. That rubber part keeps the sensor for filling the ice tray in the proper location. Thus, your overflow. Fixing the problem is *VERY* easy once you have a parts breakdown, but it does require removal of the door. I have had to perform this same fix three or four times in the two years that I have had the fridge. I have gotten to where I can get the freezer door off in 10-15 minutes. The key to not having to perform this fix is keeping the ice level low. That is, don't let the ice cubes get so high in the tray that they strike the ice maker when you open the drawer (really bad design). One more thing... I would suggest that, if you buy a replacement sensor cover and sensor fixer, you buy the parts from partstore.com. The folks at the site for which I sent you the link kept sending me the wrong part (2 or 3 different times). And the parts themselves are so cheap, I bought extras just to have on hand. Good luck!

3 If so, I believe its what molds the water into a cube. It may not be broken. Also, if you are a relatively in shape or small person, you should be able to get underneath there without taking the door off... but you will need to take the bottom tray out.

3 I ordered the manual for the item, but it did not give a detail breakdown of the ice maker, so I still don't know how or where that piece goes. I don't want to order any more manuals unless I am sure it shows IN DETAIL the entire ice maker setup

3 I had the same problem several times, and replaced the parts once. It is a poor design, so I made an aluminum angle bracket from 1/8" thick aluminum angle stock to replace the flimsy plastic part. It is held in place with two 4-40 flat head screws. I drilled and countersunk the plastic ice cube tray on the end and tapped the aluminum part to accept the screws. The attached photo shows the details. The entire ice maker assy can be removed by taking out the two phillips head screws near the front and sliding the assembly towards the front, then un-plugging the electrical connector. The ice cube tray is removed by pressing down a plastic tab and sliding the motor assy out.

1 jcs83md - Yes I have what you describe, a rubbery piece with plastic bracket. I can see the white wire, but I have no idea how to attach it. It doesn't appear that the wire is carrying any current. I need help.

0 Can you show me how to remove the door? I'm having a hard time removing the part that holds frozen pizza.

0 The person who listed the ice maker sensor parts was excellent. I must be missing a piece after my ice maker generated so much ice it broke parts loose. Still can not find parts break down view. Order parts but not the whole ice maker. Hope one of them is the missing part.

0 The ice maker is making a crack noise. What is the problem ???

0 I am having the exact same problem here. I called Mr. Appliance and the guy told me I would have to order a whole new ice maker. For parts and labor it was going to be over $200. He told me that I could not order the little plastic piece. I just now found it for $0.84 on partstore.com. What a rip off Mr. Appliance is!

0 I have had trouble with my ice breaker since the day I bought my new refrigerator. I even had problems on my old one which contributed to the new one. For some reason they seem to be prone to breaking down. John Bond | http://www.raleigh-appliance-repair.com/services/

0 To the person noticing a cracking noise. When the ice maker dumps the ice, it twists the tray to release the ice cubes, making a cracking noise (just the ice if you are lucky). That is normal. You can press the button on the bottom of the ice maker near the front to "test" it, dumping the ice and refilling with water while you watch.
