1. Viewed the video furnished (very helpful) 2. Turned off circuit breaker (avoids having to move the refrigerator), took my chances and left the water on 3. Removed the ice bin 4. Removed bottom retention screw, loosened the top two screws 5. Lifted the old ice maker free of top two screws 6. Used the bright flashlight to see how to release the rear electrical connection 7. Placed old unit on toweling, removed the electrical harness, the bail and the lower retention offset bracket (needed because the Kenmore's bottom retention is toward the center of the ice maker) and reinstalled them on new unit, taking care to maintain the original harness clip method 8. Carried the new unit to the refrig and installed the rear harness connector, then lifted it to mount on the top screws, forced it down to correct position, installed lower screw and tightened all three. 9. Placed bail in 'Operate' position, Installed bin and turned on the power. 10. Next morning, success!

Broken pin

The right hand pin that holds the liftable clear door over the lowest drawer broke. It is a molded piece, so the whole right end cap had to be replaced. The large lower drawer, the two smaller drawers above it and the glass divider/shelf all had to be taken out. The end cap was removed using a 1/4" allen wrench hand driver, and the whole assembly had to be angle out at abour 45 degrees to release a connect temperature control slide from a slot in the back of the refrigerator (I was not expecting that, but it was not hard to free it). Several pieces had to be removed from the orginal end cap and placed in the same position on the new unit. I did this without looking at any instructions (of course), and it took a few minutes to figure out how to get it apart. Previewing instructions would not be a bad idea for those who don't want to figure out the puzzle. Reassembly was easy, and I then just reversed the process to put the fully assembled unit in its' place, put the drawers and shelf in and reattach the liftable door to the pin.

Once I received the new icemaker, I removed the old one by loosening the two upper screws and removing the lower. The wire connector came out easily. The wire and the bale from the old unit had to be transferred to the new unit. Then the new unit was reinstalled and the wire plugged back in. It took several hours for the cubes to begin dropping.

I simply watched the repair video and did it! Super easy, needed start device and capacitor. As easy as unplugging the old and adding the new. The video helped and gave me confidence. Wives can fix fridges too! Saved me $2500. Looks like I'll need a new excuse if I want a new fridge.

Pin was broken

Removed all three drawers and the glass shelves. Unscrewed the pantry end cap and disconnected the humidity control parts (no tools needed for this part) and installed them on the new part. Screwed the new end cap to the refrigerator and installed the glass shelf, the drawers and the lift up cover for the bottom drawer. This is a first for me to respond to a request for information on installation. I do so because I found the entire process easy, convenient, accurate and the part was delivered as promised. Thanks for a new "favorite".

It was very easy. Remove the lid and drawer. Remove the pantry end cap screws then remove the assembly. You will need to remove the long arm that controls the temp, take note as how it fits in the clips. Next, carefully twist the temp control, again taking note on how it came out. Assemble the same way in reverse, start with the control, then the arm, then screw it back into place.

I followed the instructions that I got from this site. Removed the drawers and glass shelf which opens up a lot of room to work. I would have been through a lot sooner but it took me a few minutes to figure out that the bar on the rear wall of the refrigerator is the is the key to removing the control slide on the fornt of the panel. Once you remove that bar and remove it from the slide on the side of the panel you can then remove everything. Once I figured that out it was a snap.
