Visually compared the new ice maker to the old one to make sure they were the same style. Unplugged the refrigerator and put the freezer contents in a cooler. Removed the old ice maker by removing three screws with a nut driver. Removed the small cover plate on the inside back wall of the freezer to access the wiring plug for the ice maker. Unplugged the old ice maker and compared the plug on the new ice maker wiring to the old one to make sure the correct wiring was installed on the new ice maker. Plugged the new ice maker into the wiring coming out of the back of the freezer and replaced the cover plate. Positioned the new ice maker and installed the new ice maker USING THE OLD SCREWS. The new ice maker does not include new screws. Looked at the old ice maker to see how the trip rod was installed and then installed the new trip rod on the new ice maker. Installing the trip rod before installing the ice maker might have been easier but it was not hard once I saw how it was installed on the old one. Plugged in the refrigerator and replaced the contents after the ice maker cycled once. No more leaks and the ice maker is working great.
