If the ice maker mold develops a hole it will leak water causing an ice icicle to form on the bottom. If this is your symptom its time to replace the ice maker. The first step is to shut off water supply and unplug refrigerator. Next loosen the two upper screws and try not to remove them. On the bottom towards the front of the ice maker there is one screw. This is mounting bracket screw, remove it completely. At this point hold the ice maker a push it upwards to remove it from the upper mounting brackets. Once it is free from the mounting brackets you will have access to the wiring harness. The plug clips in place so you will have to spread it while unplugging it. Most likely you will have to remove shut-off arm and may be the heat shield as well from old unit. You may have to tug them some what to remove them from the front of the old ice maker. Suggest wearing work gloves for this step to avoid being cut. Install parts on the new ice maker by snapping them in place. Verify that the new icemaker has the correct wiring harness if so you are all set to install it. Place the new unit in the compartment and plug it in. Make sure it is also lined up in the rear where the water tube is a well. Now line up the upper screws with both support brackets and push down gently to lock them in. Install lower mounting screw. Snug up the upper screws enough so the unit is flush to the freezer wall and feels secure. Turn on water supply and plug in the refrigerator. Your Done And A Hero to your better half.

I tried to just replace the cover rather than the whole unit but it was impossible - the cover would not go/stay on. I tried to remove the old unit completely but it would not unplug it was practically fused to the back of the fridge and the liner was cracking. I ended up breaking the cover and jerry rigging it over the bulb to prevent items in the fridge from being able to touch. Bad solution.

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.

Repair went just like the video. Since refrigerator and freezer are side-by-side, it's a little harder to get to the screws. This is where the small mirror comes in handy.

Easy. Followed directions. Ice bucket is now full. I highly recommend this service (fast shipping) and instructional videos make it a cake walk.

I had to take the icemaker cover door off to get the icemaker in. Then I realized I needed to use the additional brackets.
