It was so easy, one screw to remove the plug cover, slide out unit, unplug, take off bottom by unscrewing 3 screws, place bottom on new unit, plug in, slide in place, replace cover, and let it get cold before turning on icemaker. The video on your site really helped.

Once it was determined that the icemaker was actually the problem two really good things happened. One, there was a video on the repair process on the web site. I wish I had viewed it before I removed the icemaker because it would have saved me about 10 minutes in that process. Second, I order the part on Friday morning around 10:00 a.m. and then went to the store to buy bag ice to get us through the weekend. On Saturday morning, the part was at my door ... yep, less than 24 hours! Everything was back in working order in about 15 minutes, part of that was my wife taking advantage of the shelf being out to do a little extra cleaning and reorganizing. Thanks for the video and excellent service. Ron Coulter, Celebration, FL

I took out the icemaker to see if I could find a problem and the ice tray coating was peeling, the tray heater was corroded and so was the motor assembly. I matched the picture on the site to my icemaker, checked the dimensions they gave and it was identical so I ordered it. Install was pretty easy and the icemaker started working within minutes. Thanks!

Water would not flow into icemaker and icemaker would not work.

I followed the instructions given by your demonstration. I took the back screw off, dropped the wire plastic cover. I then used the screwdriver to push the two (2)slots in and pulled the icemaker out and then unplugged it. I believe unplugging it was a little hard because the plug was pretty well sealed together and frozen. After finally getting the plug apart I then pulled the icemaker fully out. After pulling the cover off and putting it on the new one per your demonstration, I then inserted it back in. I stuck my hand behind the icemaker and bent the hose with my index finger and thumb so that it would drop into the water tray and then slid the icemaker back in until it snapped back in the slots. I then put the plug cover back on and reinserted the screw. I forgot to mention taking the front cover off before removing the icemake and reinserting it after replacing the icemaker. I would highly suggest customers follow your demonstration, it paid off well. I watched it about 8 times before I received the icemaker in the mail. Oh by the way water started flowing into the icemaker with 4 minutes and ice started coming out in about 30 minutes. As the icemaker got colder it started producing the ice faster. It's a sweet sound hearing the ice drop into the container.

About a year ago, my icemaker stopped making ice. Knowing that a "house call" would cost a fortune, I delayed calling for a repair. Then I discovered the instructional videos on this (and other) websites. Looked like a relatively easy job. Troubleshooting the problem, however, had me scratching my head. Was it the control unit? the ice maker? the water pump? a frozen water line? A 4 day power outage allowed me to rule out the frozen line. The forum here allowed me to rule out the control unit (the blink codes indicated that it was working). So, the pump or the icemaker? Hmmm. I poured some water into the icemaker to see if it would make ice (I think that was a hint on the forum). No ice, so I ordered a new icemaker (and it arrived very quickly). It was very easy to take the old maker out. Some very minor complications with the new icemaker. First, the "funnel" for the water into the icemaker was a bit taller than the old one so had to manuever the water tube into the "funnel". The second problem is that the electrical connector on the icemaker seemed to be longer than the old one so the connector extended beyond the white cover. Not really a problem but it made it difficult to fix the cover over the wire. In the end, it just left it fitted loosely, without screwing it in place. All in all, however, a very straight forward undertaking (made even more so by the excellent videos)

First off, the part I ordered arrived with broken tab. I called and had no problem getting a replacement unit mailed out right away. The video repair really helped a lot. Had a little trouble with the fill tube, it was a little hard to get inside the icemaker when installing the new one. Other than that, it was a piece of cake following the video instructions.
