Replacing the ice making portion of the kit was a snap. Loosen the top two screws, no need to remove them completely. Remove the bottom screw, unplug the connector and remove the unit. Reverse to insert the new unit.
The water valve is a different issue. Our frig is a bottom freezer model. The kit supplied (model IC3) is for a top freezer model. I was unaware of this until the kit arrived. Well written instructions come with the kit. As noted above the main assembly is full fit and function for the bottom freezer Amana. However, the valve on our unit is different than that supplied with the kit. As the icemaker now works I did not attempt replacing the valve. It looks like the difference in valves is the manifold portion and it should be possible to switch the old manifold for the one supplied. All in all a pleasant experience except that more detail could be included on the web (perhaps a PDF of the instructions?). Delivery was very quick.
