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.

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.

light socket in fridge corroded, kills light bulbs

The old light fixture and socket were easily removed. This was done with the power connected, but I already knew the switch didn't need to be handled. The solderless connectors are all insulated, so I just had to be careful. The new socket would not accept the connector for the "hot" (red) wire in the fridge, due to a design change. This is, of course, why you furnished a loose 3/16 inch crimpon connector. Rather than cutting the red wire (remember, the power is still connected), I obtained an insulated 3/16 connector of the opposite gender, and a short piece of red-insulated wire from an old fluorescent tube ballast, and made a jumper. The connector I provided (male) did not fit tightly in the original fridge connector, so I put a layer of resin-core solder on my male connector. You need tight connections. If the solder layer is too thick, it's easy to file down. Make sure to heat the solder sufficiently that the solidified solder is shiny and not dull gray. I used a 100-watt gun. 20 watts would probably work too. DO NOT USE ACID-CORE SOLDER OR FLUX ON ELECTRICAL WORK! I knew the switch was good, because I had checked for voltage at the socket terminals using my voltmeter, before I ordered the socket. It read 120 volts every time the door switch was open, and zero volts every time the door switch was pushed closed. A simple voltage tester would work here, too. Be very careful if you do this test or this repair with the power connected to the fridge; there is considerable potential to find yourself touching 120 volts with one hand while your other hand is touching a perfect "ground". There doesn't seem to be any choice if you want to test the switch. You do have a choice with the socket replacement - - the jumper described above. If you're not going to use the jumper approach, cut the power! If you are going to make a jumper and are not comfortable working on a "live" circuit, cut the power.

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.

Pried out the old switch with small screwdriver, popped in the new one and tah-dah!! ..the light came on. While I was at it, I cleaned out the freezer :). I cannot begin to imagine what a repairman would have charged for this.

I used a knife blade to slip under the edge of old switch to pray it out of the hole it was inserted into, switched the wires and replaced the new switch into the same hole. It took about five minutes!
