1. Remove the ice-maker/water dispenser cover plate located on the freezer door, by: inserting a putty knife blade at the bottom and freeing up the two retainer tabs; then pushing up. (note: be careful pulling the cover plate, there are many electrical connections on the back).

2. Note the electrical connections on the back of the cover plate and locate the connect close to the inside of the freezer door and disconnect it. (Note: this is much easier than pulling each wire off its connection point and then having to remember which color coded wire went where).

3. Carefully work the door hinge pin back out to the right and remove it and the hinge (Note: in my case the pin was already half way out so the old door couldn't close - and since this model door had a heater which came on because the door was misaligned there was constant flow of warm upwards causing ice to melt, run down and re freeze thus making the door difficult to open).

4. Unscrew the single her head screw holding the small metal piece to the right that retains the know upon which the outer door frame turns. Move the frame to the right to free it and work it out if the way. You now have access to the ice-maker door and hinge pin assy.

removed the plastic drawer and broken track. New track was the right size, but was difficult to get into place. Wish they wouldn't use plastic for something holding the weight of the drawer plus contents.

I followed the instructions on the information sheet provided as well as watching a demo video on YouTube. Actual replacement of the emitter and receiver boards took only 5 minutes, but I was not sure it was working till I could here the ice maker harvesting the cubes. Still wanted to be sure so I kept an eye on it for a few hours. Each time I looked in there was more ice. I am so glad I found your website. Parts were about $106. Labor would have cost that much and the repair guy I talked to on the phone said he would probably have to replace the whole unit.

Used the trouble shooting off of YouTube and after finding that the heater was not at the right resistance, ordered a new ice-maker and installed. Very simple and a lot cheaper than going through Sears.

I got the new part and unplugged the refrigerator. I removed the wire auto shut-off. I removed the old motor assy. I checked to see if the motor quit running at the same locations as the new one before removing the entire ice maker. Lucky it did, so I installed the new motor assy without having to remove the ice maker. It took 10 minutes at the most.
