The repair was a simple swap of icemakers with a 1/4" nutdriver. I didnt get the first unit sent after 7 days, so I called PartSelect. They were very courteous and understanding. My icemaker arrived within 12 hours of my phone call! Excellent!

The screws holding the ice maker in place were backed out about a turn and a half or so. The icemaker was raised about 1/2 inch to clear the bolt heads. The icemaker was extended just enough to access the wiring harness connector. The connector was released, and the ice maker was removed. The replacement unit extension was unneeded. The wiring harness connector was attached, and the wire was wire-tied out of the way. The icemaker unit was placed over the screw heads, rested in place and the screws were tightened (only snug). Easy-peasy!
I watched the video and did the same thing on mine and now it is working fine
put in a new one
1-Unpluged the refrigerator 2- removed ice cube tray and some food( Placed in cooler )3- unscrewed the two screws holding the old unit lowering it and unplugged it. 4- Had to loosen the cooling coil to get to the pass through hole in the back and pulled the old wire out. Connected the wire adaptor to the old connectorand to the new ice maker. At this point I couldn`t pass the new plug through the back so I strapped it out of the way and installed the new ice maker using the two screws from the old one. Adjusted the fill adjustment and turned it on. Cubes in about 4 hours.
According to the online video instructions.
I needed one with the adapter. I installed it and there was ice in the tray the next morning...no problem
Turned off water, unplugged refrigerator, Removed defective unit with support bracket. Installed support bracket, adjusted flow screw per instructions, plugged in wiring with adapter, hung on screws, tighened screws, secured excess wiring harness (making sure it did not hang below icemaker per instuctions), turned on water, plugged in refrigerator. Comment it took a few hours to start making ice, air in line? After a couple of days seems to be working fine.
This would have been an easy repair, but I bought the Frig from Lowes and I think they added the icemaker. The replacement icemaker uint has a plug on it for easy replacement. My frig was hard wired so I had to cut off the plug and splice the wires. Not a real big deal but a small work space.
Took less than 10 min to install following the inclosed instructions. At first it was not making enough ice to make me happy so I set the temp. a little colder in freezer. Now making ice like crazy. Works better than the old one ever did. Very happy with the new replacement.
