Ice maker was side mount instead of rear mount as shown in previous insructions. Removed one screw and slide ice maker forward. used flat head screw driver to undo the ice maker plug. The ice maker came right out. Removed old ice maker fill cup and put it on the new ice maker. Slide the new ice maker into place and used the same screw to secure it. Pluged it in and turned on the ice maker. Had new ice in a couple of hours. It comes with a round plug to square plug adapter, new fill cup and fill tube, all of which I didn't use.

It was simple just applied some common sense to trouble shoot and remove the motor from the housing in the back of the freezer. Then reverse the order when replacing. The part arrived in 1.5 days from when I placed the order. Joshua

I watched the installation video that described everything that needed to be done to install the part. It was helpful to know the the fork was installed with a left handed thread. I had to use a pipe wrench to break the grip of the fork to the shaft. It would not budge with a screw driver that was detailed in the video. The old motor had gotten water surrounding it and had ice frozen around it. This may have led to the motor failure, and I am not sure how the water leaked in around the motor. I assume the water came from the flow into the body of the ice maker.

First of all, you must watch the video on the partselect.com site. The video helps a lot. Then, you can start disconnecting the power cable; unscrew the cover of the main control board. Disconnected the connections from the old board. Unplug the board with a help of a small plier. Installed the new board, connect all connections back. Put the cover back. Connect back the power cable. Unit is running as a brand new.

I changed the defrost thermostat and the evaporator thermistor and the main control board I didnt change the defrost heater because I tested it for continuity and it did have continuity, the freshfood section and freezer section thermistors had 16.3 k ohms + - 5 % so I didnt change those, and the problem got worst now the freezer section wont cool under 40 degrees and the fresh food section is about 50 - 60 degrees I might as well put the old board on at least the freezer was actualy freezing for a week or so, before it needed defrosting.

contacted partselect online,chose part from part listings and ordered the part online. PartSelect sent the part quickly and I changed it as soon as it came in. Took about 20 minutes total.This is a good web site and i will recomend it to others. The ice maker won't work now so I'll have to order the parts to fix that.
