took old one out installed new turn left out turn right in
I turned off the water supply to the refrigerator, and I removed all the food, baskets, and shelving from the freezer unit. I removed three screws holding the ice maker, lowered it, and unplugged the wiring harness. The clip holding the wiring harness in the ice maker was not real obvious, but I found it okay. I took the bail and the front cover from the old ice maker and placed them on the new ice maker. Two of the screw holes for the new ice maker were slotted allowing me to start the screws in the side of the freezer prior to installing the new ice maker, and the third screw was no trouble to start. I really did not need the instructions I ordered, but I am cautious toward having everything I need in case something does not go as planned. This was a very easy repair.
Dropped down the housing for the water filter, twisted, removed item and slotted in the new filter. Easy as pie.
Turn off power first or unplug. Get a light so you can see. Read these directions through one time to reduce the learning curve. Remove ice cube bin. 1/4" nut-driver will do most of the work. Remove flexible water fill tube from back of ice cube maker, move to the side, out of the way. Remove screw from "L" shaped bracket from the bottom of maker, close to the front. Two more 1/4" screws to go. There are (2) screws on the top left that hold the maker to wall. Loosen the front screw, but do not totally remove, unit will lift off of front screw. The back screw had to be completely removed because of a clip that holds the wiring on the back of the maker. The wiring is attached to the back wall in the form of what is called a Molex connector, a white plastic connector. This is probably the hardest part of the job, wiring access. The air deflector blocks any free access, so you have to just grab and depress the prongs to release the Molex from the wall. With wiring disconnected, remove entire assembly. Use a flat-tip screwdriver to pop the white cover off of the front of the maker to use on the new one. Same goes for the wire cube arm that sets out over the ice cube bin, taking the front out first (pulling straightout) then pivot arm 180 degrees and remove from back. Remove wiring harness from front of maker. Re-install on maker, it goes in one direction only, look at the configuration before you pull it out, and put in the same way. Make absolutely sure you re-install it so it clicks in all the way. If not, it won't work. I had to remove the ice maker again because I did not make this connection properly the first time. So I did the whole job twice. You have to put the job back in reverse of the way you took it out. The new one works great. I should have done this about a year ago. The old one had been making a noise and I ignored it.
Required removal of the entire endcap piece. A total of 5 screws. Hardest part was realizing i didn't have the right size socket wrench to start. Got that and replaced all 5 screws in under 5 minutes. $18 for part, $10 for tool.
Only second replacement of water filter required. Readily identified, procured and replaced water filter. Filter replace indicator deiluminated. However, ice maker still is not producing ice following replacement. Any suggested corrective actions would be greatly appreciated as I have lived w/o ice for two weeks now.
I had to get on-line to find how to do it. It originally seemed easy enough, but it was not as easy as it looked. I sliced my finger trying to get the brackets into the butterfly clip, but after about 30 minutes of dogged-determination, I was successful...The water filter replacement was easy, once I broke the tighter than all get out old filter.Sure did save me a lot of money doing it myself.
