Removed the elec connection (after unplugging app) found it easier to remove from appliance. Remove the three screws ( do not temove,....just loosen, the top two) bottom must be removed! Insert the power connection, exchange the tilt up rod, line up the water connection and place back on the two top screws. Tighten and relpace the bottom screw. I found out the hard way.... you cant't see the two top screws . The slots on the ice maker just fit over the screw heads.... it's cold in there!!!

Hopoe this helps..

I performed basic troubleshooting to make sure there was power and water. Based on historical research on this particular ice maker, I decided that the best direction was to replace the entire assembly. I found this item on this site, ordered it and received it a few days later. I basically removed the ice pan and a few items in the freezer, removed the three mounting screws with either a flat blade screwdriver or nut driver, pulled the electrical harness out of the back wall of the freezer and transferred it to the new ice maker and then installed the new unit, really that simple. Iwas concerned at first, not seeing any activity in the new ice maker but after 15 minutes or so I heard ice falling into the ice bin. Well worth replacing seeing how simple this job was.

Ice maker assembly required disconnection of the wire harness at the back of the freezer and the removal of 3 hex nuts. The assembly did not come with a new wire harness nor the rigid wire attached to the hinge that can be raised to stop production of ice. The wire harness was easy to disconnect from the old assembly by pressing in on a tab. The rigid wire attached to the hinge simply required pulling straight out of the hinge-hole (no need to twist, slide, or perform other contortions...it does require significant force to remove, but it does pull straight out). It was simple to attach it to the new ice assembly. Reinstalled the 3 hex nuts and wire harness plug and was good to go....after waiting several hours! I was worried at first because the unit did not immediately fill with water after I plugged the fridge back into the wall socket. However, after the freezer was cold enough, the water did run and I had my first ice dump within about 3 hours of finishing the installation. We have good ice again, and Partselect has excellent pricing and awesome delivery! I received the unit the day after ordering, and I had only paid the basic shipping! Thanks Partselect! Jeff

Original ice maker was leaking

There are 3 screws holding the icemaker in place. After removing the ice bucket, I removed the screws, then twisted the unit to gain access to the power plug. The plug is held in place by a plastic flap which is part of the connector. It has to be pushed down to remove the connector. The new unit went in perfectly and performed flawlessly for 3 days until the compressor blew out! After feeling some sense of accomplishment having fixed the icemaker, I learned that my neglecting to clean the vent grill in the front of the refrigerator had caused its demise. Don't forget to clean the dust out of the vents!

unscrewed the 3 nuts, took off the electrical connection. Then put new one on. One problem, the ice maker had a hole on the side for the hose, mine needed one in the back. I used tape to hold it in place going over the part that was in the wrong place.

Unplug fridge, close off water supply valve. Remove two screws attaching assembly to freezer wall, detach wiring harness. Remove parts from old assembly: wiring harness, shut-off rod, harness clamp and attach to new assembly. Connect wiring harness, two screws attach new assembly to freezer wall. Plug in fridge and open water supply valve (after an opportunity to change in-line filter). Works now!

Ice Maker stopped making ice

First, I removed the ice bucket. Then I removed the two top left screws and bottom screw with a 1/4 inch nutdriver. I pulled the assembly out as far as the wiring harness would allow, disconnected the harness on the lower left side, and removed the unit. I removed the old motor cover and ice stop wire and placed them on the new unit. I then reversed the process. It went so fast that the freezer must have still been close to zero degrees because it filled with water within 15 minutes.

The coating was coming off of the ice maker and ending up in the ice.

Barely a couple years old, was not getting any ice. I carefully selected the right part on this website and ordered. Around $150 and was easy install.

1. Mine was upper and lower freezer. you slide the freezer door out and lift it up, it will come right off.
2. pull out the tray above and ice bucket
3. Use a screwdriver to unscrew 2 screws above and one below the existing icemaker
4. unclip the power cable line

Thats it!

Point to note: the new piece you get will not have the power cable line, the water cover and the metal arm. I would think it should have for $150, but keep this as you will need a few little parts to complete the new part before installing it back.

VERY easy to do installation. Dont pay anyone to do this, it can be done easy!

I first loosened the hex screws and lifted the unit off. Then I unplugged old unit from the wiring harness. I did have to switch the inlet funnel since the new unit was a little different. I used the one from the old unit. I then plugged it back in, rehung and tightened the screws. The unit started operating within a few hours.

It was real easy. I unpluged the fridge. Took out the three screws that held the icemaker to the wall. Unpluged the wire harness. Removed the old icemaker and reversed the order to install the new one. Everything lined up perfectly.
