I shut off water to the fridge and then unplugged it. I used an adjustable wrench to remove the water line from the unit. I took a 1/4-inch nut driver and removed the screws holding the access panel and the 2 screws that hold the unit to the fridge. I disconnected the 2 electrical connections and all the tubing going into the unit. I reconnected the electrical and the tubing and reattached the unit to the fridge then replaced the access panel. I reattached the water line, plugged fridge back in and turned on the water. I flushed the line for about 2 minutes. It was a very easy process. It took approximately 5 hours for the first cubes of ice to drop so be patient.
