Followed the instructions. Smooth as silk. This part is better than the original. There appears to be a sensor that beeps when the ice reservoir is full.

I spent 15 - 20 minutes just hunting/deciding which of several sets of parts & directions to follow. The provided directions were not bad; but none of them quite matched my GE ADORA side-by-side model. Once I came up with the actions I would need to take...I was done in 5 minutes! The kit , as I said, came with all the parts one could need (and one or two un-needed parts included for other model GE refrigerators) I am very happy with PART SELECT...altough GE doesn't rate as high with me for their declining reliability.

Super easy, had my 15 year old do it (with my supervision).
Followed very clear Instructions that come with the replacement...
But, he could not get to the plug location until he removed 4 screws holding the motor assembly that spins the ice in the drawer and moved it out of the way...
Followed the rest of the instructions...
Works like a charm.

Installing the actual ice maker was quite easy. What takes most of the time is preparing the freezer for the install. Need to remove all shelving, (and the door) to gain access to the unit. The ice maker is simple to install once access is achieved. Putting everything back together takes some time.

After replacing the pump in the back of the fridge with no luck I finally decided that it had to be up front. So I ordered the front cover, Ice maker, a new auger and the water dispenser control. For a semi-novice the whole repair was not complicated, my wife had to provide an extra pair of hands to get the ice maker unplugged from inside the freezer but after that it was smooth sailing. Just make sure you look at the water feed tube in the back of the freezer to determine if it's plugged.

Ice maker was side mount instead of rear mount as shown in previous insructions. Removed one screw and slide ice maker forward. used flat head screw driver to undo the ice maker plug. The ice maker came right out. Removed old ice maker fill cup and put it on the new ice maker. Slide the new ice maker into place and used the same screw to secure it. Pluged it in and turned on the ice maker. Had new ice in a couple of hours. It comes with a round plug to square plug adapter, new fill cup and fill tube, all of which I didn't use.

Ice not dispensing. Motor would turn but no ice would dispense.

Same repairs required by the majority of the posts. Early in the problem the motor and auger would turn but very little ice would dispense. Problem: Helix lock plate was stripped. Did not replace in time and auger would jam, finally stripping out the dispenser motor shaft. The fix was replace the dispenser motor even though it was only the shaft that was stripped. Entire repair was easy. To replace the Helix Lock remove the entire ice tray. Carefully disassemble the entire unit with a screwdriver/driver, noting the order of the crush blades and other parts for reassembly. Once auger is removed replace the helix lock plate and reassemble ice tray. To replace dispenser motor, use a nut driver to remove motor unit panel from back of the freezer. Only remove the screws necessary to remove the panel from freezer. Not all the screws need to be removed, some attach the motor to the panel and the others are for the dispenser door mechanism. Disconnect the two electrical connectors before removal. Once the panel is removed from the freeze, use pliers or vice grips to hold the motor shaft while removing the auger drive disp attachment. Some posts said they had to cut the shaft with although I was able to pry the attachment until enough of the threads caught and i could twist it off. Once drive auger attachment is removed, remove screws attaching the motor to the panel, disconnect the electrical cords (noting the position) and slide the motor out of the panel. Replace with the new motor and reconnect the electrical connections and screws. Make sure that the dispenser door mechanism is still securely attached and properly aligned. Reattach panel to freezer and reconnect the electrical. Insert ice tray and unit now works properly.

Ice Maker would not dispense or crush ice

I took the ice tray out of the brackets. Then, I removed the bracket from the right side (3 screws). I removed the back panel (4 screws). Needed to pop the right hande connecter off of it. I tried to get the back connector. Probably should have just removed all the connections from the back panel. Instead, I just removed them from the motor. The motor itself had three screws that I took off. I pulled out the motor and put the new one in. Had some trouble lining the screw holes of the motor with the back panel. If I would have removed the other connections, I could have taken the whole back panel out and lined up the screws easier. I put everything back together in the opposite order I tool it apart. Gave it a try and it worked.
