First of all, I do not consider myself very handy. Most of my simple home repair projects include at least 2 trips to the local hardware store and take twice as long as they probably should. So if I can do this anyone can. For once, rather than just blindly throw new parts at a problem I did check the water pressure to the icemaker first and then even tested the icemaker with a multi-tester to determine what was wrong. I had $5.00 mulit-tester in my workbench but had never actually used it before, so I found step by step instructions on another website on how to test the motor and it turned out that one of the circuits in the main motor was in fact bad. Since the motor was around $80.00 dollars and the Whole unit that's inside your freezer is about $120.00 I decided it was best to just go ahead and replace the entire unit rather than just the motor. From what I saw online normally replacing an Ice maker is fairly simple. Remove 3 screws swap the prewired plug along with the metal arm then just reinstall it. Somehow whenever I try a home repair it's never that simple. First of all, our freezer is on the bottom so removing the screws holding the ice maker meant that I had to climb over, around and under the freezer shelves in order to get to the ice maker itself. Also one of the screws is not visible from the front so I had to hold a mirror in one hand while I tried loosening the screw with the other. Since the metal arm that turns off the ice maker is not included in the replacement it had to be moved over. Of course it was stuck, so it did take a little time to get it loose because I was being careful not to bend it and have to order another one. Finally installing the new icemaker meant once again that i was climbing over under and around the basket in the bottom level freezer. There is probably an easy way to remove the entire drawer but I couldn't find the release tabs so when just pulling harder on the drawer didn't work, I thought it best to just work around it. Still all in all, not a difficult job, just a little time consuming. The guy in the video did the swap in about 6 minutes, it took me about 45.

the ends the hold the drawers in place were broke

It was simple. Took longer to empty the fridge than to do the repair itself. For the center rail no tools required. For the pantry end only needed a 1/4" nutdriver. 2 hold on the rail which has to be removed. Then 3 on the pantry itself. Came right off just have to be careful not to disrupt the temperature control that runs through it for the pantry. It is rather flimsy and thin plastic that could break easily. Assembled the temp control back onto it and reassembled. Literally 15 minute repair for both.

The ice maker was leaking into the holding container and had black chips of paint or plastic from the inside of the icemaker

Installation was really easy since the replacement part was identical to the OEM part. Removed the three mounting screws with a nut driver. This allows one to remove the icemaker from the wall and disconnect the wire harness plug from the icemaker. I never unplugged the harness from the rear wall of the refrigerator. Put the new icemaker in place, making sure to place the water fill tube in the proper hole. Plugged the wire harness into the new icemaker and tightened the three mounting screws. The icemaker worked perfectly from then on with clean ice cubes and no leaks.

Unplugged appliance. Using a small putty knife I moved the switch out far enough to grab it with pliers. Moved wiring to new switch and pushed into place after testing.

I took out the glass shelf that sits above the deli drawer. I removed the two veggie drawers. Unscrewed the two sides and pulled them out. The left side went right back in with the new part. The right side gave me concerns as it had the control slide. It came out easily. I had to R/R both roller slides with no problem. I took out the control slider parts and readily reinstalled them on the new piece. Reinstall of completed assembly went in without a hitch. It took very little time, I had the correct parts, screw holes were right on. Perfect fit, perfect part! It's as easy as that!!!

I took out the drawers, cleaned off the shelf above then took the glass shelf out of the fridge. The broken piece just lifted out and I snapped the new one in and replaced everything! All better!

After reading others who did this same repair, I removed the bins and emptied the bottom shelf. Now came the hard part as the glass had not been removed in a long while. It was stuck on with gunk. I removed the top glass and the lower glass by putting hand pressure from underneath and cleaned them. This took the longest time. With the bottom glass in and the top glass out, I snapped in the new piece, the actual repair took about 5 minutes including putting the drawers back in and testing them.

Ice maker leaking water dripping into the bin and freezing the dispensing unit

I checked the part number and an exact replacement was ordered. The old unit was removed and what I failed to note was that the water supply hose for the new unit entered from the side. Further examination showed a small "break-out" piece at the rear of the unit. but I still had to do something about the hole in the side. I used a piece of metal tape to close off that hole, trimmed it to size, and installed the unit. It was really an easy install after I figured out what to do about the hole. Evidently, this unit is mounted on the side of the freezer compartment in some models. Reading the reports of others was a big help.

The piece that holds the shelf trim in place was not molded like the other side.

I put a stainless steel screw into the pantry end cap to hold the shelf trim in place so my pantry drawer would operate.
