After troubleshooting to determine that I needed the Icemaker assembly, I ordered the parts early on a tuesday and they arrived the next day. Quick. Opened the box and there was no packing material, just the icemaker in the box with a slip of paper instructions with one sentence on it. Said to remove ice shield from old icemaker and install on new one. To remove the old icemaker, I first had to removing the one screw on the bottom that secured the cover over the wiring harness. Next I removed the cover by sliding it towards back of freezer section and guiding around wires. Next I depressed up on two spring clips on the bottom of the icemaker to release it from the tracks and slide the icemaker out. Be careful with the hose for the water outlet. You may have to tip it backwards to get it to clear. Once out of the tracks, I disconnected the wiring harness and removed old icemaker. I reversed the process to stall the new one after I had removed the three screws and the ice shield off the old icemaker and installed on the new one. After installation, it took about 10 minutes for the sound of water running into the trays and we had ice 30 minutes later. Worked fine and hasn't missed a beat yet.
