Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.

Just Answer provide on line assistance so we can certainly recommend a local firm to come and fix the appliance however for that we would need your postcode.

Typical life expectancy of the appliance is 12 years, so the appliance is at the very end of is projected life, at which point repairs are uneconomical, due to parts becoming obsolete.

The ice maker parts are shown in the diagram here, the parts which are still available (not discontinued) are listed here, so if the part the engineer requires is not listed then the repair is not possible.

James. It would seem that the main problem is that the back plastic plate to which the motor is attached has shattered. The engineer who came to look has removed the ice container to expose this back plate. He has said he needs 2 parts 1 which he can get the other he can't. looks as though we are looking at a new fridge freezer

If the spares are not available any more then a telephone conversation is pointless
