I found your website with the step by step video on how to replace the ice maker on my refrigerator. It looked really simple, so I ordered the part from you and it was here in 2 days. It absolutely took less than 15 min to remove the old ice maker and replace it with the new one----and it works. You helped me save close to $200.00. Thank you!!!

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.

It's rather easy and straight foward
(I've done about 3 of them over the years)
take out the ice tray and if you can the top rack (depending on the model of your freezer) for more elbow room. unscrew the bottom screw under- neath the ice maker, then the two top ones, this makes it easier to remove the electrical connector.
take off the old plastic housing(snaps off) put it on new one, take the old wire harness off old, put on the new one, and last take the old wire that turns on the ice maker and shuts it off when full! that pulls out and snaps in the new one, and just reverse the install process!

Then unplugged the wiring harness from the ice maker. Then plugged it into the new ice maker. Then reinstalled it back into the freezer with the three bolts.Then plugged it back in.

Replaced ice maker assembly, 5 screws out, unplug the wire, take some attachments off the old ice maker and put it on the new one, plug it in, 5 screws in...done. I did have to take a mirror to see how to unclip the wire, which turned out to be the hardest part of the whole job..

It was easy and my daughter did most of the work while I assisted.
Removed contents from freezer, unplugged refrigerator, shut off water to ice maker. Used hairdryer to thaw inside, placed ice catcher in sink to thaw. Removed defective ice maker and transferred trip lever and wire bundle to new unit. Installed new unit, bent mounting bracket located on bottom of new unit so that when installed the ice maker is horozontally level. Plugged refrig in and turned on water. Water does not come in right away as the temp probably has to be restored to freezing level before things start to work....so just let it run. In the morning lots of nice cubes and no leaks...hooray!

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.

Changed icemaker, no help. Water pressure perfect from fauset to frig. Waterfilter was replaced new. No help. Trouble shot to secondary inlet water valve which was not sending enough water to icemaker. New part had a minor modification, yet easy. No need for ice trays :))

I had several times tried to get the old switch out but with no success. Ordered the "repair kit" and followed directions for removing old switch (there is a plastic spring clip on one side). Easy to unplug the old switch, plug the leads into the new one, snap the new one into place. Took about 5 minutes total--piece of cake. I wish I'd thought to try this years ago when the old switch began to fail.
