Simple repair and regret I waited so long to do it. UNPLUG REFRIGERATOR!! Remove cover over control module on front of icemaker by releasing pressure on the two clips and sliding cover forward. Loosen screws you see now with a Phillips screwdriver. Gently pull cover off and note where and how control arm slides off of your old module. Slide new module on reversing procedure and make sure you line up control arm in new module as it was in old one. Replace screws and then replace cover by securing clips. Do not over tighten screws. Turn refrigerator back on and make sure control arm is engaged in new module and should be in down position to turn on icemaker. Do not force if it is not. If control arm is all the way up and clicked in place, your unit is off. Gently pull down to activate it. Wait a few minutes and let icemaker cycle. If icemaker does not fill with water after about 5 minutes, prime it by pouring about 6 oz. of water into the icemaker and it should begin to work. Very easy repair and I had ice in about 90 minutes. Remember that many icemaker repairs are necessary because of the control arm being forced in some way by hand or obstruction of items in freezer compartment. Always give it room to work and be very gentle with it.
