This is the 4th motor on this ice maker. Sears replaced the original motor at a cost of >$300 and this is the 2nd motor I have replaced at a cost <$70.
Repair is quite easy since this was the As described on your site, simply remove the door flap, remove the covering for the wiring, remove 3 hex nuts under the floor of the unit and the entire ice maker slides out. After disconneting the wires, you simply slide the cover from the motor, remove 3 philips screws and slide the old motor out.
Align the new motor, slide in, replace 3 philips and reverse the process to place the ice maker and hex nuts.
Was "back in ice" within an hour or so.
Thanks for the instructions and video and for making the parts affordable for do-it-yourselfers!
