First I removed the top shelf, ice drawer and second shelf. Next, I used a 1/4" socket and removed the three screws holding the ice maker lower unit, unpluged and removed from unit. I removed the light cover revealing two screws. I then removed the plastic unit holding the fan. I unpluged all plugs and uncliped the white sensor from the back coils.

I saved $200 in repair costs thanks to
