It was so easy. I loosened the three screws that held the ice maker on ( removed the bottom one ) unplugged the wire harness and the old came out. I repeated the process in referse and waited about an hour and we were making ice. The other thing that was so impessive was the part was ordered about 2PM in the afternoon and I had it the next day. I am very impressed. Thank you so much as now adays it is hard to find good customer service.

Oredered the new icemaker. They delivered fast - it was here in 2 days. One nut holds in the icemaker, then it just lifts out and unplug the wiring harness. New unit was identical, which is very nice. No modifications to make. It went right in and works perfect. Great experience.

This grille just snapped into place without the use of tools. Couldn't have been easier. And the delivery was super fast; I ordered online one day and the item arrived the very next day.

I removed the drawers, glass shelf and the old frame. I had to remove several parts from the old frame and reinstall on the new one. It took a couple of minutes to figure out how to remove one part by prying with a small screwdriver. Otherwise, everything was straightforward.

The rail crisper has tabs at either end to hold it in place with the crisper drawer brackets. One of the tabs broke and the crisper drawers could not slide in and out properly.

The leftover broken piece of the rail was removed from the crisper shelf supporting brackets and the new replacement installed in place using the front and rear tabs inserted into the crisper support bracket. Both crisper drawers now slide in and out properly.

I have never used the ice maker because I have a well and didn't want to usewell water to make ice. I usually make ice with bottled water.
I decided to try making ice with gravity fed water from a converted water fountain placed on a higher level than the refrigerator, locater in my garage next to the kitchen.
When I looked at the rear of the frig. I saw a copper pipe (on the bottom of the frig.) that lead to a valve, with a plastic tube that went to the freezer. I didn't think that the gravity fed water could go down to the bottom and return to the freezer at the top, so I cut the plastic tube, and fed the water directly to the ice maker.
I only put a small amount of water in my water source because I wasn't shure what would happen. The water filled the tray and the rest of the water went to the container that catches the ice.
I did get one tray of ice. I later found that the valve that the copper pipe went to, has a 7 minute timer that only allows a small amount of water to pass.
My next effort will be to connect to the copper pipe and see if it will allow the gravity fed water to rise to the ice maker. Wish me luck

It took longer to remove the crispers than it took to replace the part.
The parts drawing was easy and your service was really quick.
Thank you

Researched your web site - determined best bet was to replace the ice maker unit. Ordered the new ice maker and believe it it or not it was here in 3 days and installed EXACTLY as it was stated. Frankly it was a snap and was easier than ever expected. Thanks
