It was easy and my daughter did most of the work while I assisted.
Removed contents from freezer, unplugged refrigerator, shut off water to ice maker. Used hairdryer to thaw inside, placed ice catcher in sink to thaw. Removed defective ice maker and transferred trip lever and wire bundle to new unit. Installed new unit, bent mounting bracket located on bottom of new unit so that when installed the ice maker is horozontally level. Plugged refrig in and turned on water. Water does not come in right away as the temp probably has to be restored to freezing level before things start to just let it run. In the morning lots of nice cubes and no leaks...hooray!
