The video on the website on replacing the Icemaker Assembly is great. I watched it then performed the R&R. It would have taken less than 15 mins but I took the time to clean the components which were reused. The water receiver on the new assembly is taller than the original. Luckily the water outlet in the freezer is rubber so I was able to bend it out of the way so I could slide in the new unit. The wiring plug in the new assembly was installed in reverse of the old one so I had to pull the unit back out, turn the wiring plug upside down, put it back in place then re-install the unit. Had a couple minor changes to make but the video is a great teacher.
