I unplugged the refrigerator. Then removed the ice tray. Then removed the screw holding the ice maker secure. I had a little difficulty lifting the ice maker off the clips on the side of the refrigerator but was successful. Then unplugged the wire harness from the back of the refrigerator an lifted the unit out. Removed the wiring harness from the old unit and installed it on the new one. Then positioned the new unit so I could plug the harness in the refrigerator and lined up the clips to attach it on the side of the refrigerator, being careful to line up the water distribution tube. Replaced the screw to secure the ice maker and plugged the refrigerator back in and it is working very well. I am very hsappy with the repair

Ice maker was leaking water into ice tray and freezer causing large "icebergs" and ice dams to form.

Video was helpful and reading the other responses online was a big help also. Followed all of those instructions. Most difficult part was disconnecting the electrical plug to the ice maker. Need a screwdrive or other pointed object to depress plastic tab. Other than that, things went smoothly. HOWEVER, after turning water back on and plugging in fridge, I thought everthing was perfect...no leaks initially. BUT, came back a few hours later to find no ice cubes in the holding tray, "iceburg" formations and ice dams built up again thoughout the freezer. Water was leaking continuously from the ice maker. Upon further analysis, it appears the electronic mechanism keeps telling the fridge to send water to the ice maker...or, it is sending too much before shutting the water off. The tray is overflowing and that seems to be the problem. I'm back to square one, but with a new ice maker.

We purchased 3 parts, in order of probable part that was broken. Website indicates that the Ice Maker Assembly was 75% likely the problem and indeed it was. Didn't need to install the other 2 parts. It wasn't too difficult to replace. Thanks for the advise, it was right on!

Changed bulb, not the problem, had to remove switch to identify correct choice to order (3 pronged verus 2) after that it was easy beyond having to stand on my head to make the exchange. (N B before removing old switch it actually came back to life)

Watched the video on the web site and then followed the instructions. It was very easy to change. After changing it, I filled it with water from a cup to get it started making ice since the video does not address how to do this. It has been working well ever since. If you are handy with tools, you can do this.

I put in a new ice maker because it was not in very good condition. The water valve had a very slow leak which allowed water to freeze on the way to the ice maker and plugged the line. This problem was in one of your repair articles all of which were very welcome

I had to replace the whole unit. The tray should have lasted longer and there should have been a replacement tray available.The installation was easy. 3 screws removed, unplug unit, turn off water and put in new unit.

Just followed directions.Which were clear as could be. I think it took longer to clear the freezer, than to replace the ice maker. Thanks so much.

Replaced ice maker

Unplugged refrigerator and truned off water supply. I then removed old ice maker by first removing screw holding mounting bracket with 1/4 inch nut driver. Then I carefully pulled up and out on the ice maker to remove it from mounting brackets on the side of unit. Once free, I was able to access the wiring harness in the back and remove it from the unit by compressing the clips and gently pulling with an even pressure. Now that the old ice maker was detached I took it to my counter and removed the on/off switch rocker bar and wiring harness. I attached these two pieces to the new ice maker. I then plugged the wiring harness back into unit and lined up the mounting brackets on the side wall and did a reverse tilt to downward pressure onto brackets until they clicked in securely. The last step was to screw in the mounting bracket with nut driver. Turned on water line and plugged machine back in. It took about an hour and a half before it produced its first harvest of ice, but has been working like a charm since.

Watch the video on the sight and that was almost all I really needed. The only thing I would add is that it took me some time to get the drawer freezer door off. Lift the front straight up. Don't pull the door slides out.
