Rmoval and replacement is not at all complicated. (1)Reach behind and to the left of the icemaker and release the power plug. There is a release snap on th side of the plug. (2)Using a 1/4" nut driver remove the screw holding the icemaker to the "L" bracket at the bottom of the icemaker. (3)Using the nut driver loosen two self taping screws holding the top of the icemaker to the side of the freezer compartment.(4)Lift up on the icemaker to remove it. (5)remove the white plastic cover from the front of the icemaker (pry out at the bottom) and snap it onto the new icemaker. (6)Remove the wire sensor arm from the old icemaker and place it on the new one. (7) Remove the cable assembly (plug) from the old icemaker and fasten it to the new one. (8)Secure the new icemaker in place using the reverse order as the removal. The icemaker will take a little longer to make its first batch of ice as it will have to attain its proper operating temp (0 degrees to 2 degrees F).

Watched the video and followed the instructions ... time to repair was slightly longer than expected due to the fact that my fridge had wood panels requiring removal. Still, the video was terrific since I am a visual type person.Part Select service was amazing ... ordered one day and the part arrived at my door the very next day. Had the same type of service on a previous repair to replace the ice crushing part of the ice maker. What a company!!! Thanks so much.

Since I had more than one issue, I decided to replace the entire ice maker. All I needed was a nut driver and it took 5 minutes. Three hex screws and unplug the wire harness and the whole unit came out. I changed the harness over and installed the new unit. I left for work and came home to ICE. It was Great!!!

I shut the water valve and bled the pressure off by using the water dispenser. Removed the four screws that hold the cardboard backing on the unit. Unplugged the power cord, loosened the metal water supply fitting. Then I removed all three hose fittings and dried the drips with a towel. I pushed the electrical plugs off with a flat blade screw driver. Removed the bracket attachment screw and pulled the double valve out. The new valves came with a push-lock fitting for the plastic hoses so I pushed them into their sockets. Put the new valve in and replaced the attachment screw. Reattached the water supply line and the electrical connectors. I turned the water on and checked for leaks. replaced the cardboard backing, and plugged the power cord back in.

1. Viewed the video furnished (very helpful) 2. Turned off circuit breaker (avoids having to move the refrigerator), took my chances and left the water on 3. Removed the ice bin 4. Removed bottom retention screw, loosened the top two screws 5. Lifted the old ice maker free of top two screws 6. Used the bright flashlight to see how to release the rear electrical connection 7. Placed old unit on toweling, removed the electrical harness, the bail and the lower retention offset bracket (needed because the Kenmore's bottom retention is toward the center of the ice maker) and reinstalled them on new unit, taking care to maintain the original harness clip method 8. Carried the new unit to the refrig and installed the rear harness connector, then lifted it to mount on the top screws, forced it down to correct position, installed lower screw and tightened all three. 9. Placed bail in 'Operate' position, Installed bin and turned on the power. 10. Next morning, success!

Had to completely remove the ice maker in order to install the replacement part

Sorry for delay in writing. Part I ordered arrived two days ago and it was exactly what I needed. Knowing that there will be problems even with the smallest job I procrastinated starting. When I did start this morning I foud I had to completely remove the ice maker and disassemble it in order to install the water fill cup bracket. The challenge was reassembling the unit. Not hard for an experienced repairman but a challenge for layman. Everything is thing is back to gether now and power on cooling down the refrigerator. Won't know how successful it was until turn on water and ice is formed. If it works this saved $75 just to get a Sears repairman to come out and tell me what would be needed to fix the refrigerator and $1,000 if I had to buy a new refrigerator. Extremely satisfied with service I received. Thank you.

I watched the on line you tube video on how to DIY. The putty knife worked to pop out the switch. I used the standar screwdriver to unplug the switch from the wire harness. Then plug in the new switch and pop it back in to the roof of the freezer. Tip: watch out when ordering the new switch - the freezer switch is different than the refrigerator switch. The freezer has three prongs. The fridge has two. I initially ordered the wrong part and added a week to the repair time and had to pay shipping to return the first switch.
