I watched the repair video on the web site a couple of times just to get comfortable with what to expect. (i.e. pressing tabs on wiring harness to remove, placement of lift arm for removal and installation) These instructions were a big help...I had the removal, modifications and installation completed in less than 30 minutes. Ice cubes (without the extra icicles) in 1 hour...

Had to remove the freezer door. Held on by 4 screws. Removed bottom screw on old icemaker and loosened the top 2. Slid the old icemaker up, removed the wiring harness and installed it on the new one. Took the wire out that turns the icemaker off and installed it on the new one. Hooked new icemaker on 2 screws, installed bottom screw and installed freezer door. Turned water back on and started making ice.

I have a Maytag Refridgerator with lower freezer and ice maker. Stopped making ice. Noticed the unit would fill up and freeze but the tray wouldn't rotate to drop the cubes into the tray. Cleared the frozen trays to see if it was just stuck but same thing happened. Replaced unit, not difficult with the exception that the top tray is ridiculously hard to get out. Never did do it, just worked around it. Working perfect now.

the task itself was simple, the freezer being on the bottom of refrigerator made it difficult for a 84 yr. man to get to. It did take a long time for the icemaker to kick in..

Icemaker was leaking, leaving black chunks in ice

I simply removed the 3 screws holding the unit into the freezer with a nutdriver, then disconnected the power plug (a little hard to get to, and requires releasing a small tab in a hole in the main body). The icemaker came right out with no problem. I then had to change out the water funnel inlet because mine had a different style than the one provided on the new one. This was easy also, just remove 2 phillips head screws that are set deep in 2 holes in the face of the motor drive unit, then pull the whole assembly apart far enough to allow the ejector blades to slip out of the hole through the inlet funnel, then snap the funnel loose to move it to the new one (the same technique to be used on the new one, then re-assemble in reverse order).

Followed the other directions -- I have the bottom tray freezer. It was really easy to unscrew the screws -- a bit of a reach to get them all, but not a problem. Leave the top screws half-way in and it's a bit easier (the icemaker has the brackets that just sit on the screws). Thanks to everyone who left instructions!

No ice being made - Kitchenaid fridge

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!

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.

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.
