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!

I followed the directions from the YouTube video, which were spot on correct! Loved it. No problems. I did have to wind the spring one more turn than it showed on the video, but that was easy to figure out. No problems!

Once I received the new icemaker, I removed the old one by loosening the two upper screws and removing the lower. The wire connector came out easily. The wire and the bale from the old unit had to be transferred to the new unit. Then the new unit was reinstalled and the wire plugged back in. It took several hours for the cubes to begin dropping.

The actuator for dispensing water and ice was sticking, splaying water and ice freely all over our hardwood floors..

I watched a 5-minute video of a man removing the door hinge, the face plate, the other connections down to the actuator itself. I called Emerald and talked to Ron Harrigan (Fresno CA). He pointed me to the video and said it was a simply operation. I followed the instruction step by step, but when I finished, the light in the front of the door would not come on and the dispenser would put out water but not ice. I called Ron again. He said, "Go through the process again, step by step." When I got to step two, I saw that I had not securely fastened two electrical joints together. I snapped those babies into place, and it was all downhill! We have ice. We have water. We have an actuator that sings! Thanks, video. Thanks, Ron.

ice tray cracked at ice dispenser auger motor causing auger misalignment..

Removed the ice tray with nut driver, tilted forward to disconnect electrical plug for ice dispenser. Once ice tray was out, removed cube/crush selection solenoid (don't lose spring) and removed auger motor. Now came the tricky part, to remove the auger itself from motor, it is a left handed screw to remove. I used a pair of needle nosed vise grip to hold on to auger shaft, then used channel lock pliers to grab auger and removed. Using the vise grips made it for easy work. Once removed I reinstalled auger motor and ice cube/crush solenoid in reverse order. replaced ice tray into freezer. Works like new!! One tip (I found this out the next morning) The motor, because it is frozen will condense moisture on it when outside the freezer. A) use compressed air to dry before reinstallation. or B) Once installed, run ice dispenser at least once every 15 minutes for about an hour. This will keep the motor from freezing up. I didn't do either, and the next morning the motor was frozen and wouldn't work. I had to break free with pliers (risked doing damage to motor and new ice tray). I was lucky and motor works fine. Good luck!
