The hardest part was figuring out how to get the front panel escutcheon panel off. With the putty knife under the bottom flange, you need to push down with some effort on the part of the flange where the drip pan slides in and twist the putty knife to disengage the locking tab. Once the panel is off, the rest of the job is easy with the aid of your video. Everything works like new...thanks.

Ice Maker would not make ice

A repairman wanted $600.00 to fix our ice maker. I paid him $88.00 for his "service call" & asked him to leave. I ordered & replaced the ice maker machine & the ice maker still would not work, so I replaced the 2 optics boards next. Replacing the ice maker was most challenging because the plug is so hard to get at, but the 2 optics boards were pretty easy. Just watch the video on PartSelect.com. Work slowly & take your time when pulling out & replacing the optics boards. There were a total of 6 screws for the 2 optics boards. It took me approximately 10 minutes to replace both boards, & now my ice maker is working perfectly! I am thrilled!!

Top left mounted Icemaker facing front. Disconnect power to fridge. Using 1/4" nut driver remove single silver nut under right rear side. It holds a plastic cover over the electrical connection, unhook the cover and remove it. Release clips under front lip under both sides and entire icemaker will slip and twist out. Remove electrical connection to ice tray. Place assembly on bench and remove 3- 1/4 hex screws from under side to release bottom tray. Snap cover off motor and remove. Carefully align pin and arm on control assembly to ice tray and-re assemble. May take 30 min to dispense. Discard till clear.

Used 1/4 inch nut driver with swivel to remove the part retaining screw. Held new part into place and installed the retaining screw. Challenge was not hitting the level and putting water on me and the floor during installation. Relatively easy installation as long as you have patients.

watched the video on your website, assembled the tools needed, then replaced the bracket. It was so easy because I would play one step in the video, do that step, then repeat for the rest of the video. Very happy with the part and speed of service with partselect.com and the video was excellent !!
