I unplugged the fridge. Then I removed the ice bucket. Then I removed the ice maker using a 3/4 socket to separate the connections and then used a small screwdriver to separate whatever connections were left. Then I installed the new ice maker and checked its level. Everything now works fine.

I had to disasemble the crispers and remove the runners and side panel. I needed a screwdriver and wrench set (metric). Once I found the correct socket, everythig went very smooth. My husband was amazed that I could make the repair by myself. I probably saved $200!! The part fit perfect and it was alos very good quality. Thanks

I'm a pretty handy person generally but I had to call on my engineer neighbor to help. I've never soldered before so I didn't feel comfortable installing the thermistor. I had everything ready for him so all he did was cut the existing thermistor out, strip the wires on the replacement , solder and tape and he was seriously done in 10 minutes! I replaced everything and plugged the fridge in to find that my fridge still freezes everything. I have now ordered the damper control and gasket to hopefully fix this problem.

Shut off water supply. filter is located in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator on the inside. open the drop-down door. by hand pull the filter downward. then twist it to the left one quarter turn. it should pull out.
