I ordered the part and just 1 1/2 days later, it arrived! Awesome!
I took the cover off the ice maker motor. Then I simply unscrewed the three screws holding the motor in place (be VERY careful - the hinge mechanism that holds the ice maker on/off bar needs to be gently removed from the motor so the prongs do not break).
Once the motor and ice maker hinge were removed, I simply pushed the new motor on, screwed all three screws back in, put the cover back over the motor, pushed the bar to 'on' and water flowed and ice was made! I turned it to Max so I would have lots of ice in a short amount of time then returned the switch to Normal and I've not had a problem since.
