Ice hopper had no ice in it. But water in door worked and if I added ice to hopper, it would dispense in door. I added water to ice maker but no ice was made. Replaced ice maker and all it required was to unplug harness and remove two screws with nut driver. Easy!

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.

First i shut the water valve off going to the fridge, I then removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. Then i took the water line loose to the element, reverse the prosses and put all back on new element and installed,

Ice maker quit working, I took it apart and found a broken wire at the thermostat, soldered it back, but apparently it got too hot.

It took longer to remove the ice bucket and frozen food than it did to replace the ice maker. Remove one screw with a 1/4" nut driver, slide outward and remove plug. transfer water tube to new unit. plug it in, slide into rear slots and install one screw. Replace ice bucket and frozen food, shut the door and hear ice falling in about 30 min. Easy job! Great product! THANKS MJS

I removed the lower screw (not needed for the new icemaker), loosened the 2 top screws, unplugged the wire harness and removed the old icemaker. Unpacked the new icemaker assembly from the box, wiped the ice cube depressions to remove any debris, snapped on the water tube adapter, hung the new assembly on the 2 loosened upper screws and tightened the screws. The wire harness required the supplied pigtail plug which made the wire assembly long and awkward to replace the ice bucket/dispenser assembly, plugged it in and was done. It took a total of about 10 minutes for the entire operation and had a full bin of ice cubes within 36 hours and was ready for the ice dispenser/crusher in the freezer door. Easy install!

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

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