This is a very simple repair.Unplug the appliance first because you're dealing with an electrical connection to the ice maker.Remove ice holder by lifting up on the tray.This exposes the ice maker.Remove hex head screw that holds ice maker to side of unit(the empty end of an all in screw driver is the exact size.Then lift up on the ice maker and pull away from the wall of unit.Unplug both ends of supply harness by squeezing the side of the plug ends.Remove the metal bale from old unit and reinstall the wiring harness and bale on the new unit.If you've gotten this far the new installation is a breeze.Plug in new unit and reattach to wall.Ice will start making in about an hour or two.
