Pull the ice bucket, close the door switch and activate the cubed disp, see if the coil in the rear of the freezer is pulling the stirrup up,  If it does re-assemble the bucket making sure the rod on the side is in the stirrup.  If it does not pull up, you might have a bad coil or have lost power to it from the dispenser area.

My ice maker in my Hotpoint CSX2222GRBA WW seems to be doing the exact same thing.

-- Solenoid is nice and loud; stirrup slightly jumps when the solenoid is energized

-- The rod that slides into the stirrup is not bent, and when manually twisted, moves the plastic restrictor out of the way.

Like OhioBob, I think my plastic stirrup has become separted from the solenoid's plunger.

How did you get to the spiral pin to make your repair? It's behind the back wall of the ice maker unit, right?

Coil and plunger should be behind the ice bin I believe, without looking at your breakdown.

Does the ice maker just pull out of the freezer compartment?

I guess what I am asking for is instructions for removing my ice maker unit from my freezer compartment so I can get to the stirrup and pin, also also to confirm that the solenoid is still good.

I did a search and did not find instructions for doing this, just how to find the correct ice maker for my refrigerator.

Are these instructions found on this site? If not, can you tell me?

Many thanks.
