Instructions came with the part I ordered and they were very easy to follow. Basically you have to remove the cardboard cover from the back. Then you remove the four screws at the bottom (2 front, 2 back) that hold the bottom plate on. My husband tilted frig and held it while I put a block(4" x 1/2") under the bottom outside frame (not the bottom plate). You can see a ridge on the frame which is where I placed the block. My husband braced the frig the whole time I did the repair just to ensure it didn't fall on me even though it was blocked. The bottom plate didn't slide back at first. I took a flat screw driver and hammer and slightly tapped the bottom plate through the screw hole that secures the bottom plate to the frame. I tapped 2 or 3 times...gently each tap...until the bottom plate dropped down. Which was the 1/2" noted in the instructions. I then was able to access the front wheel, remove the pin and replace with the new one. We replaced both front wheels so I did not replace the bottom plate until we replaced the second wheel. We removed the block and tilted the frig to the opposite side, blocked then I replaced the second wheel. Once that was done I removed the block, my husband let the frig down gently and I went to the back and tapped the bottom plate forward. It didn't quite want to go back in place but with patience it finally and then was able to put all screws back in. Donna

Should have. . . . Just taken the ice maker out in the first place . . . . When I saw no ice I assumed the timer was bad. . . Replaced it. . Then when that didn't fix it again assumed that water valve was bad. . . . Replace that also to no avail. . . . Finally took out the ice maker and saw that the heater had stopped working cuz there was still ice stuck in it. . Replaced ice maker. . . All good. . . The water valve I replaced was a good thing cuz you can definatley tell the difference. . . . Anyway. . . Fixed!

Spent six hours melting the ice berg, twenty minutes cleaning things up and ten minutes replacing the ice maker. The video was great the only piece of information that was missing was a statement that it may that several hours for ice to be produced. Thanks for the prompt and courteous support during ordering, a good product and support video.

Stopped making ice

I order the suspect part before pulling out the ice tray and whole ice maker for inspection. As it turns out my ice tray was peeling and all gunked up and I needed a new one. I suggest in the case of ice maker issues that you pull the entire ice maker before ordering what appears to be the troubled part. I had to replace the whole ice maker which was not really that much more money than just the part.

Refrigerator was turning off intermittently

Removed temperature knob, removed one screw and removed cover plate. Removed old thermostat (3 electrical connections), removed plastic sleeve from old thermostat and placed on new thermostat, and installed new thermostat. Easy access at the front of the refrigerator so only took 15 minutes to remove and replace. Only small issue was bending the sensor sufficiently to fit into slot of the cover and thru pinch points while placing the thermostat.

Ice Maker stopped

I removed the ice maker, which consist of three 1/4 inch screws to install the water fill cup and bearing. One must loosen the front panel of ice maker to install the fill cup which consist of two standard screws, slide forward enough to install new fill cup. The removal of the Icemaker control was simple, using #2 phillips screwdriver and three screws. Unplug the control and install the new one, replace the three screws and cover. Reinstall the ice maker and within one hour cubes were dropping in the bin. I saved a lot of money repairing myself, which more than covers the shipping cost. Shipping was fast, two days.

A local appliance parts distributor suggested that I go on line to get help figuring out the problem. The motor assembly was 51% probability. I ordered the part and followed the instructions given at the time of purchase. In a very short time ice was dropping.
