First I removed the three screws that held the element in place. I had a problem disconnecting the plug from the ice maker, but using a small screw driver and pushing in the slot to release the plug finally worked. It took about ten minutes to get the plug out of the old ice maker.
One manufacturer error was, not making the electrical wires a little longer to access the ice maker plug better.
This is the second ice maker I have installed in the freezer since 2004 and it is rather easy once the plug was removed.
I then plugged in the new unit, reinstalled the three screws, pulled off the cover and arm from the old unit, and put them onto the new installed unit, and it was ready to work.
The kick plate grille took five minutes to install.
The door closure cam kit was installed in fifteen minutes.
Everything went in really easy, except for the plug disconnection from the old ice maker.
Great do it yourself job done!
