Was concerned that new icemaker was quite a bit different than the one we were replacing. Called GE to confirm it was correct.

Went ahead and installed the unit, using the supplied electric cable adapter.

A little difficult to deal with the extra cable, but everything worked OK and it's making ice normally.

Tried replacing water valve since no water in ice cube tray. Exact part not available due to age of refrigerator, but I got the equivalent replacement part for $18. Mounting holes different, but I made it work. Also one connect on new one slip connect whereas both compression fittings on old valve. I put it back together and icemaker now works great.

Mounting bracket did not fit. Retainer for water input looked like a thread protector.

Put bracket on workbench and hit two or three times with hammer. Glad I did not remove water inlet retainer from part, it can very easily be mistaken for a thread protector.

HAD TO DEFROST THE FREEZER TO MELT OFF ALL THE ICE BEFORE SERVICING. ONCE THAT WAS DONE THE ICEMAKER REPLACEMENT ONLY TOOK ABOUT 15-30 MINUTES TO COMPLETE. tHE NEW ICEMAKER CAME WITH MANY ACCESSORIES AND ADAPTORS THAT WERE NOT NEEDED AND THE INSTRUCTIONS WERE BASED ON REPLACING AN OLDER MODEL AND NOT REALLY CLEAR FOR MY MODEL. THEY MENTIONED NOT BEING ABLE TO USE THE NEW STRIPPER BUT IT WAS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE OLD ONE SO I LEFT THE NEW ONE IN PLACE. ALL IN ALL IT WAS EASY AND DID THE JOB.

I ordered both a new replacement ice maker, and a new solenoid/pump. They were delivered to my house within one day and I had them installed in a matter of an hour. I had to use the power extension cord supplied with the ice maker.

The new "quick connect" hose couplings on the new pump are great.

unplugged the old valve and disconnected the water line, then reconnected water line on new valve and plugged it in. It was an easy process but unfortunately that did not fix the problem. It is the ice maker it self so I will be ordering a replacement ice maker.

1st - checked water supply - old valve in water line was closed with sediment.
2nd - replaced water line valve and reconnected copper tubing about 1 hour
3rd. removed single outlet valve and installed the new part - about 15 minutes

Everything went well and was very easy.
Unfortunately, the ice maker still does not work.
Still trying to understand what is wrong.

Ice maker would only make very small and very few ice cubes.

After determining that the ice maker on this relatively new refrigerator would make ice cubes if it received the proper amount of water. Ordered the valve and received in a couple days. Using a nut driver, removed the cardboard cover from the back of the refrigerator. Removed one screw holding the valve bracket to the fridge and removed another screw holding the water supply line and the water line to the ice maker in place. Pulled plug on fridge and removed 2 wires from valve. Removed inlet and outlet lines from old valve and reversed the process installing the new valve.

valve wouldn't allow enough water to fill ice maker.

ice maker quit working

The new ice maker did not look like the old one, but it was supposed to be a direct replacement. A cable was included to adapt the plug to the right outlet. I installed it and left the long cable hanging initially. when I tried to put the ice bucket back in it did not fit. After realizing the return policy said no return of installed components and I had opened the parts bag I decided to cut the ice maker bucket to size using a dremel cut off wheel. I made the bucket fit, but still had trouble getting the cable to fit well. It still doesn't but it does make Ice, and is functional.
