Can I remove wire arm from icemaker
I just installed a replacement Whirlpool icemaker in my Kenmore Elite side by side and it works great, except it has the wire on and off lever on it and my fridge is for the optic on and off. I tried just removing the arm but that wouldn't make the icemaker work so I had to put it back on. Is there anyway I can use this model icemaker for this optic system of the refrigerator?
Thanks so very much for any info. boandbob

no, why didn't you just install the correct icemaker?

Can I remove wire arm from icemaker
I bought the one that Sears said was the Whirlpool replacement ice maker. Thats why I am hoping that there is some adjustment etc that can turn off the wire arm and allow just the optic part to work.

You got the wrong i/m-as Hw/man pointed out. if you have to keep that i/m you'll have to take off that arm and swap the stripper board..or just swap the new module onto the old i/m [unless the mold is flaking]. correct # for optic model [8 cube] is-W10122502

P/S-if you take the arm off-remove it while it's in the down position [on].
