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.

Ice maker would not make any ice

  • Customer: Betty from Maricopa AZ
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

All of the parts are removed and install through the front of the freezer bin. Remove three screws and unplug the old one. I plugged the old wiring directly in and set the new ice maker on two of the screws for alignment, then screwed in the third screw, tightened everything. Install the arm that checks the status of the amount of ice and waited for it to fill up with ice.

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

My refrigerator needed the extra brackets. This was not mentioned in the video and just a small sentence in the instructions.

removed the old ice maker, removed the cable from the old as none of the ones included were correct, and attached it to the new. within in two hours it was making ice.

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