I had to replace this unit after a repair by the local appliance repairman. The thermostat/ damper control failed and the refrigerator section of a side by side froze up.

As far as installing this unit it goes as follows.
1.) You may want to turn off the water supply to the unit just as a safety.

2.) Remove the two screws holding the unit to the back of the refrigerator.

3.) Disconnect the two lines noting which one goes where. A simple pulling of the hose connection sleeve ( pull toward the hose ) will release the hose's

4.) Reverse the process and turn the water back on. Check for any leaks and re-attach to the back wall.
