Removed old ice maker and control valve. Control valve is in the back of the refrigerator in the bottom corner. Unplug the refridge, turn off water supply valve, remove mounting screw and unplug the control valve from the wiring harness connection. Using a flat screw driver, remove the four water lines (this is the most difficult part). Go inside the freezer and remove the ice maker by loosening the two top screws and removing the bottom screw. Unplug the electrical connection by pulling straight out or use a flat screw driver to pry off. Installation of the new parts is the reverse of the removal. The new ice maker has a pig tail that is necessary to use. This pig tail is longer than the original but will loop up behind the unit and back down to the female plug. Full ice bucket in 48 hours.
