Watched the informative video of the same repair twice so I would know what to do and the order in which to do it... the video made the removal of the old part and installation of the new part a breeze. Just follow the instructions and anyone could do this home repair, even those not mechanically inclined. Outcome success gave me confidence to do more of these types of repairs myself and save $$.

The icemaker stopped working

Removed icemaker and installed the new one. Went from six tiny ice cubes to four big ice cubes. Ice is of a higher quality, and the ice no longer falls out of the bin as the old ice maker's ice had once been prone to doing. A certified epic win on my part.

Water leaking and freezing on the botton of the icemaker mold

Install was done in reverse order of uninstall. The only thing that made this install a bit tricky is that the fill cup on the replacement icemaker was not the same part as on the original. I could have attempted to trim the replacement fill cup but didn't know how well that would work. I instead elected to install the original fill cup onto the new icemaker. This added a bit of time and complexity to the repair but I followed a repair video for when just the ice mold is being replaced. That video told me how to disassemble the ice mold and timer motor which had to be done to in order to replace the fill cup. It's been about 2 weeks since repair was made and the icemaker seems to be working properly.

After viewing the very clear video. Remove the ice maker door by first lifting the door and pressing in on the hinges. Remove the screw in the back lower right of ice maker with a one quarter inch nut driver and lift out the cover to expose the wiring harness. Pull the ice maker unit forward and out and reach behind it to pull out the wiring harness plug. The plug only comes out if you depress the small "push clip" in the center of the harness plug. Turn the old ice maker unit upside down and remove the three screws again with the one quarter inch nut driver to lift off the plastic cover. The wiring harness plug need to be pushed through the plastic housing to remove the plastic cover completely. Reinstall the plastic cover on the new ice maker. Reverse the procedure and install the new ice maker. This is really a simple repair if you watch the video.

I unscrewed the (3) screws on the bottom of the ice maker & the (1) screw on the electrical cover plate. I unplugged the ice maker & completely removed it from the freezer. Make sure to pay attention to the locking tabs or your maker will not come out. I took the bottom plate off the old ice maker & attached it to the new one, slid it in & re-plugged it. Tighten all screws back where they are to go & now I have ice. It was a breeze to do this job. Part was completely as described.

Called an appliance repair service, they wanted $326.69. Went on line, ordered the part, it came in 2 days. It took me 20 minutes to remove and reinstall the part. The sound of the cubes dumping into the bin was great. Thanks for your how to do it video. Oh by the way, I am a 68 year old handy woman!
