I just removed the bottom screw, then the top 2 screws on the ice maker after shutting off the water line and unplugging the refrigerator first. The ice maker was gently allowed to lay down as i unplugged the wiring harness on the inside back of the freezer. I took the wiring harness off the broken unit by pushing the little tab down and gently pulling the harness plug. Of course, you have to get the cover off first, gently using a screw driver to get the cover past the tabs. Then just plug the old wiring harness into the new one. The most difficult part is laying down on the floor and plugging the wiring harnes back in and getting the ice maker screwed back in. My new icemaker had a bent angle connector so I had to use the old one so the hole would line up. Also, a flashlight is helpful since the refrigerator is unplugged. Also, I put my ice cream in a picnic cooler with the old ice, in case it took longer than I thought it would. Really, though, anyone who can lay on the floor and is used to taking things apart and putting them back together will find this pretty easy and take less than a half hour.
