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.

Replaced ice maker. Ice maker was cheaper if you used parts from old ice maker! Very easy to install! Ice bin auger was a bit more involved, but with the attached video underneath the explanation of the part, it was soooo easy to replace! Now we have ice again! Thank you so much!

Looked up youtube video to check how to test if it was the water fill valve, icemaker, etc. Checked and it was the icemaker. Removed old icemaker; ordered new one from parts select. Used existing wiring harness in freezer and hooked up new icemaker easily. New icemaker works perfectly.

It was simple, three screws two at the top and one at the bottom. Then unplug the wires that ran from the fridge to the icemaker. Reverse the pocedure to put in the new icemaker and take a jumper wire and start the cycle, finish. It was a simple exchange. The icemaker was a little expensive, but it works. Thanks partselect.

After first replacing the water valve, the issue with our ice maker remained so we ordered the ice maker unit after watching the video at partselect.com. It couldn't have been easier. I had the whole unit replaced in less than 10 mins. It took about an hour for it to cycle and fill, so my husband thought it wasn't working, but I wanted to let it be and see what happened...and an hour later I heard it fill. It's been about 2 weeks and it's working perfectly. Partselect is officially our 'go-to' site from now on!!

I unplugged the power and turned off the water to ice maker. loosened two top screws of ice maker, and removed bottom screw. detatched wire harness. removed shutoff arm, front face, and clips of old ice maker, and attached them to the new ice maker. plugged in wire harness, set ice maker on top two screws, replaced bottom screw, tightened all screws. turned on water, restored power. Ice maker is working great.

The old ice maker's protective finish flaked off causing some cubes to stick to the mold and consequently water overflow into the bin below causing ice cubes to fuse into large ice globes.

I disconnected power plug. Pulled ice bin and flip down ice conpartment lid out. Using nutdriver removed screws. My wiring harness is permanently connected to side back wall of frig. so I disconnected wiring plug from ice maker. Installed orig. wire bracket/arm to new ice maker. Connected new ice maker to original wiring plug. Screwed ice maker back in. Had ice a few hours later. It took 2 days for ice bin to refill completely. Saved money by replacing myself vs multiple service tech. trips, service fee, and part cost. Part arrived 3 days after I placed my online order. Thank you PartSelect you have a customer for life.

I received my new ice maker and got a nut driver and went to the freezer and removed my old ice maker . Then I noticed a problem. The cord on my old ice maker did not have a plug in the middle, my wires seemed to go through the wall of the freezer. I was afraid I would damage it if I tried to pull the wires from the wall, so I called customer service . She said I apparently ordered the wrong part. I had order a $70 unit and she said I needed the $114 kit. I would have to return the unit and order the kit. But she told me to look at the kit description and watch the repair video to see if that would help to see if I thought I could do it myself or get a service person. After looking at the parts and video I realized that the kit would be sending me the exact same unit and a couple of different type wire cords. I decided that all I needed to do was use the wire harness from my freezer and remove the new wire harness from the new ice maker unit. Of course I cut off the power to the refrigerator before pulling the plugs.I just had to loosen the two upper screws and remove the bottom screws, pull out the old unit, unplug the wire harness from the ice maker and removed the new wire harness from the new unit. Then I plugged the old wire into the new unit, slipped the unit back into position being certain that the water tube was in the proper position, tightened the upper screws, replaced the lower screw. I turned the power back on and waited. In a while I had ice again.
