1.Lift out the ice bucket. 2.Remove two screws at bottom. 3. Remove front (made up from parts 20 and 21 in diagram by lifting the plastic flanges at the bottom and sliding it off upwards. Fingers were adequate to lift the flanges. 4. Remove the mechanism. It comes right out. 5. Slide the mechanism into the new bucket. 6. Put the front onto the new bucket by sliding down and lifting the flanges over the ridge at the bottom of the bucket. 7. Put the two screws in at the bottom. 8. Slide the bucket back into the freezer. This was the easiest repair I have ever done.

Based on comments I read at this web site, I first ordered the water valve; that did not fix the problem. Replacing the icemaker did fix the problem. It was easy to replace. Contrary to the instructional video, I couldn't simply tilt out the icemaker at the bottom after removing the lower screww; I had to loosed the two top screws as well. The leak was caused the coating on the icemaker being cracked and peeling.

Upper frige getting warmer and evaporater freezing up, replaced heater element, thermister, and then replaced control board and is working great. was not going into defrost mode due to bad board. I could put in to manual defrost mode needed to replace the board.

ice maker not making ice

I watched the video which gave me confidence that I could do the repair which I did in very little time. One thing to emphasize though: When you remove the vertical wire connector from the back of the freezer compartment, remember which color wire is on the top. I needed to watch the repair video a second time to be able to make that determination. Probably the repair video should have mentioned keeping track of that connector regarding the re-connection of it because it could also connect when turned 180 degrees.

Ice Maker wouldn't make Ice

I watched a youtube video and completed the repair in less than an hour from start to finish and save myself a service charge. It was fairly easy, the only problem was that it was a bottom freezer and getting to the ice maker was harder than if it was a side by side or top freezer.

Refrigerator was warm but freezer and ice maker worked

I moved all food to garage fridge and freezer, removed drawers, bins and ice maker in bottom freezer. I then removed the 4 screws holding on panel on inside back of freezer, removed the fan blade and unplugged fan motor and removed it. I installed rubber grommets, fan and the bracket (that holds it in place when reinstalled) onto the new motor. I then reversed the whole process to install it. That solved the problem, fridge works like a champ now. Only problem I had was having to hold the back panel up because it was still connected with wires to some sensor on the panel. I suppose there is a way to remove it but due to limited space and eyesight I couldn't tell. Otherwise it was great that I could repair it for $50 instead of paying repairman hundreds in labor and mileage cost! Moving food out and back took more time than the repair.

I unplugged the fridge. Then I removed the ice bucket. Then I removed the ice maker using a 3/4 socket to separate the connections and then used a small screwdriver to separate whatever connections were left. Then I installed the new ice maker and checked its level. Everything now works fine.

Used the butter knife to pry the old switch out, it is a snap in switch so there is a small keeper on the bottom that needs to be pushed in to pop the switch out. Un hooked wires by pulling them off of the terminals (won't shock you) and put them on the new switch and popped it in

There were 23 parts to be removed in order to replace part. So I printed out a diagram of the parts off the computer and the labled each part on the diagram with its name. I laid them all out in order and patiently re-assembled the ice maker. When finished, I gave a cheer!
