The Amana's Ice Maker mounted against the back wall. I'm a 61 year old female that ordered this to help my aging parents. The wire harness only unplugged from the Ice Maker and was hard wired to the Frig. I had to "blindly" try to depress and release the harness clip and that took most of the time. When putting in the new ice maker, I noticed that the opening for the fill tube was now against the wall and not to the back. So, I had to disconnect it again. I found that it is also made for a side right fill by cutting out a perforated tab. Just to make sure there wasn't an overflow out of the other round hole, I used silver tape to plug the hole. It took two hours after plugging back in the frig and turning on the water supply before it made ice.
