Initially I turned off the power to the unit ( I found no need to disconnect water source. I believe it is controlled by the unit and is in the "off" position when powered down) then I loosened the top two screws, removed the bottom screw and slid the unit off of the upper mounting screws. Taking a flat screw driver blade I pushed down on the connector's locking nib within the maker and released the connector. I then reversed the procedure to reinstall making certain that the connector was fully pushed in. Tightened things down, turned on the power and had 'cubes" in about 1 hour. Easy fix, "repair" stories on site make this incredabily simple.
