First I removed the ice tray door by lifting and then releasing the hinge. Then I used a nutdriver and socket to remove three recessed screws that are located under the icemaker. I also removed the screw on the underside which holds a plastic flange in place covering the wiring harness. Remove the plastic flange and slide the icemaker out as far as possible, then disconnect the wiring harness from the icemaker. Slide the old unit out and discard. Reverse the procedure to install the new unit. Points of frustration: Disconnecting the wiring harness--it is in there mighty tight! Also, when sliding the new unit into place, clearing the rubber water spout without breaking something is somewahat of a challenge. The unit comes out
easier than it goes back in!
