What part to order to replace Kenmore 253.55693400 ice maker?

I found an old thread (2007) about a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker making clicking noises and not putting out any ice. Tips were to either order a new ice maker or to take apart and see what's wrong. Guy took apart and then needed to order a new ice maker. So to save myself the trouble of taking it apart, I'll just cut to the chase and get a new ice maker since this refrigerator is about 15 years old.

The reason I'm posting is because I was going to order the Icemaker assembly for $85 from these guys: https://www.appliancepartspros.com/f...ap4299334.html. But since the 2007 poster's ice maker cost $150, I'm wondering if I've got the right thing. Seems to me my part should cost more than $85 considering this is now 2020.

Appreciate your help.

That's a Frigidaire manufactured unit.
$85 is actually expensive although they do stand behind a 1 year no questions warranty.

Your icemaker is OEM # 5303918344. You can search that part number and find many online retailers. Most are just replacements and are not factory original parts.

I typically buy the $50 replacements for Frigidaire and Whirlpool.

Thanks! Since I didn't get any responses yesterday, I went ahead and ordered it. Probably should have shopped around, but just wanted to get this done as my husband has been without ice for a month or so. (I can live without ice, but he can't.)

$85 is still a good price. They've come down in price from what they once were.
