Researched the "Exploded" view of the part on PartSelect. Turned off the water supply to the solinoid unit and shut off the ice maker. Removed the two screws holding the solinoid into place. Remove the existing water line from the old unit (they are slip in/slip out type) and pushed the existing water line onto the new unit. Turned the water supply back on to check for leaks (none were found) and turn the ice maker back on and waited for a couple of cycles to clear the air out of the lines. The ice maker appears to be working better then before. Maybe the old solinoid was try to tell me something (could not keep up with ice demand) before it went out.
