The repairman had already taken out the broken icemaker. The wires were too short so I just switched them out from the old unit. He showed me how to pop in the new one and screw in the bracket. If I didn't read everyone elses repair stories I would'nt of been so confident. 10 minutes and I was done and I did'nt need my husbands help!

I had previously removed the old icemaker and water inlet valve, which is installed at the back of the frig. Once I figured out the valve worked fine, I ordered the new icemaker kit (which contained a new valve anyway!!)Installation was easy. I plugged in the icemaker wire harness, making sure the icemaker arm was in the up or 'off' position, installed three screws and put the ice tray back in place. The fun was re-installing the inlet valve. Make sure, if you have plastic tubing and have to disconnect it, that you have extra tubing hardware (nuts, ferrules, and inserts). Oh, and remember to reconnect the tube that runs from the valve to the freezer. Otherwise, you get a nice puddle of water on the floor when you turn the water back on!
removed 3 screws and removed the electrical plug. The wiring on my old icemaker was different so I just switched the wiring Everything is working fine.
I removed existing ice maker by removing one screw and dsconnecting the wire harness. I put new ice maker in place but found out that the new harness was about three inches shorter than the original. After several frustrating minutes, I remove the front cover of the original IM and released the connector for the old harness. I then did the same with the new one. I put the old harness on the new IM and reinstalled it then connected the harness and started making ICE.
I removed the three screws that held the ice maker,unhooked the water supply, and disconnected the electrical connection, pretty straight forward. Reversed the process and replaced the ice maker.We have a well, with iron, our water treatment system quit working, and we got iron in our water. Inspecting the old ice maker I found the iron build up in the unit was what kept it from dumping the ice.
It was a good thing we read the comments from others prior to installing, we too had to switch out the old wires with the new ones. (New ones being too short). Knowing that made the project all that much easier for my husband.
