First I removed the drip pan, then removed the two screws behind it which hold the frame. I then pushed up on the frame, the top of which is slotted to fit on two large-head screws. This allows the frame to be swung loose. I then disconnected the flat control cable, then removed two more screws. Replaced ice chute door, but repair didn't work. Repeated this several times. The problem was that I had not correctly affixed the part holding the door to the solonoid pin. The pin had dropped out, and I re-inserted it the wrong way. Be sure that the slotted end of the pin properly engages the chute door holder. This job would have taken much less time if I had more carefully examined the mechanism while disassembling it. Next time I repair something, I'll use a digital camera to snap a few pictures as I disassemble the mechanism.
