Got the main bolts off and unplugged and removed the ice maker. Had to remove all parts and rebuild it on the new mold. Was more complex than I thought but was able to get it done. Note where everything was as you take it off and you'll do fine.

I unscrewed the (3) screws on the bottom of the ice maker & the (1) screw on the electrical cover plate. I unplugged the ice maker & completely removed it from the freezer. Make sure to pay attention to the locking tabs or your maker will not come out. I took the bottom plate off the old ice maker & attached it to the new one, slid it in & re-plugged it. Tighten all screws back where they are to go & now I have ice. It was a breeze to do this job. Part was completely as described.

stopped dumping ice. The ice was frozen in the tray but not emptying into door bucket

removed the 3 screws from the receiver first, on hinge side with the flap The toughest part was twisting my arm around and upside down to plug the new board into the wire harness since it had very little slack and the wires were stiff from cold, the emitter on the opposite side was as easy, care needed to be taken with the upper screw partially hidden behind ice maker itself but it was an easy removal. Again, short wires and stiff from cold make alignment of the plug to the board just bit awkward to ensure it was seated properly. 15 mins later I heard the first emptying of the ice maker

water dispenser leaking, auto ice maker froze up

Researched in "ehow" the procedure. Looked relatively simple so I ordered the part. When it arrived, emptied the frig, pulled it out, thawed out the auto ice maker with a hair dryer. I then examined the old part and compared it to the new part. They were close. Old part had a rivet attaching it to another bracket which had a primary valve that led to the filter cartridge housing. I had to drill out the rivet to seperate the mounting brackets. The electrical connectors were rear facing on the old unit and front facing on the new unit. Not a big problem, just concerned that the solenoid leads might be polarity specific. I called my brother who works on restaurant equipment and he said that as long as the long were the same color, polarity was not an issue. He was right. The second concern I had was that the plastic line from the primary input valve was a stiffer gray plastic line with a rib molded on the ended to secure a metal compression nut. I wondered again if that would cause a problem with the new pressure connector. It did not. Just cut off the rid and slide it in. Frig is working great, dispensing water and ice like it was new. Bought the frig for $1,000 13 years ago, now sells for $2,500. Save a ton of money by buying the part and doing it myself. Thanks.

Do not try to pull out the water filter by the cap. There is a button that releases the filter so you will not have to replace the cap. The cap twists onto the filter. When replacing the filter, the cap goes onto the new one.

Just remove old one which was really easy since it was practically falling off and replace with new one. It is a bit tricky because you are afraid of breaking the new one. Watch the video and you will be more confident. I was REALLY impressed with the shipping. I ordered on Monday afternoon and when I returned home Tuesday afternoon it was waiting for me on my porch , and this was the week between Christmas and New Year when everyone was fussing about not receiving packages. NOT ME!

Ice maker stopped working

After viewing the very clear video. Remove the ice maker door by first lifting the door and pressing in on the hinges. Remove the screw in the back lower right of ice maker with a one quarter inch nut driver and lift out the cover to expose the wiring harness. Pull the ice maker unit forward and out and reach behind it to pull out the wiring harness plug. The plug only comes out if you depress the small "push clip" in the center of the harness plug. Turn the old ice maker unit upside down and remove the three screws again with the one quarter inch nut driver to lift off the plastic cover. The wiring harness plug need to be pushed through the plastic housing to remove the plastic cover completely. Reinstall the plastic cover on the new ice maker. Reverse the procedure and install the new ice maker. This is really a simple repair if you watch the video.

Did exactly what the video showed . First I went through the test procedure to conferm my boards were bad . But ice maker didn't work after the control boards were replaced. I did some more research to find out what the problem now could be. I discovered where the water goes into the ice tray the line was frozen. Got the hair dryer out and melted the ice that had the water restricted. Been making ice every since. I tell everybody about (part select) web. Sight now

new filter cap fit perfectly, but I couldn't get filter in or out. Called appliance repair person who pushed it in -- no problem. I just didn't have enough arm force to push it in.
