Three screws takes the old one off, 2 on top and 1 on bottom. Only problem I couldn't get the wiring harness off. I had my son look at it and he ended up cutting his hand and getting stitches(bracket that holds wiring harness is sharp), but he did get it off. I went online at parts select to ask how to get wiring harness off, but they wanted $30 to tell me. When I got the new one I could see that there is a bump on wiring harness connection that goes into a hole on ice maker, push that down and it comes off easily. Also after I installed the new one it didn't work the first day, I opened it up and looked for a button to push but didn't find any. I also pulled the lever up and turned it off and then back on, it starting working after that I'm not sure what worked but it is working now. Doesn't come with any instructions.
