I did the repair, but apparently there's an Ice Door Kit with Bracket ( Part #8201756 - PartSelect Number PS990120 ) that has a metal bracket that will actually fix the problem with the broken plastic that holds the pin in.

What took the longest was emptying the very full freezer. One screwdriver. Note, three power cables included with the new unit. All were too short. The "old" cable showed no signs of wear,so i used it. Making ice in ~30 minutes!!! (-:

I disconnected the power, using a screw drier loosened the screws and disconnected the old ice maker. disconnected the ice maker power and assembled the new Ice maker first connecting the control bar then connect the power inside the refrigerator. connected the ice maker with the screws ensuring it is balanced so the water doesn't overflow. turned the power power on. it took about 6 hours for it to begin producing ice. this was an easy job just make sure the ice maker is rinsed thoroughly before connecting and very it is balance with the first few runs of water.

Water overflow from ice maker turns ice in tray into block

Symptom: The ice maker was making ice, but sometimes the water would run and overflow at the entrance of the ice maker, spilling water into the ice catch and turning all of the ice into a huge block. The problem was that the liner of the ice maker had started to flake off, but only on part of the unit. When water would flow into the ice maker, the exposed part would freeze quickly, creating an ice dam and block the rest of the water from flowing into the other trays, thus overflowing. Solution: A new ice maker unit was ordered online, then after watching the video on how to fix, the process was straightforward and fairly simple. There is one screw to remove, 2 to loosen, and a wire harness to remove to remove the ice making unit. Then the ice full bar was removed from the old unit and put onto the new unit and the entire assembly replaced inside the freezer. The most difficult part of the job was loosening the screws by touch as there isn't a lot of room to see.

Ice maker began making large block of ice, although still made cubes, bur required emptying weekly.

It was so simnple that I let my wife do the repair. All she had to do was to turn of the water supply and unplug the refrig. loosen two screws on top and remove one screw on the bottom of the ice maker. Gentle tilt the unit in order to unplug the electric connection on the rear of the unit and then take it out. The new unit went back the same way in reverse order.
