Ice maker is noisy and not making ice?

This problem is very much noticed when refrigerator gets old.
There is a motor in the ice maker assembly.When this motor gets old, it makes lots of noise.Also due to getting old the ice maker stops making ice.The best advise for this problem is to replace ice maker assembly.

Replacing ice maker assembly on most of the refrigerator is not very difficult and procedure is near to same.But not exactly same.On some models there is clips holding the parts and on some models there are screws holding parts.Many a times screws are hidden and difficult to see.
One of the user who replaced ice maker assembly has mentioned the procedure to replace ice-maker,Go through this procedure :---

Remove the Ice bin.

Then loosen the ice bin rail under the ice maker and remove the screw that attach to the bottom of the ice maker to the side of the fridge.

I unplugged the power to Ice Maker from the back of the fridge and unscrewed the two screws that secured the ice maker to the fridge. This allowed the Ice Maker to be removed from the fridge. To replace the new ice maker I simply repeated the steps in reverse.

Its not very hard.
