Remove Ice Maker Assembly
While holding the ice maker in order for it not to drop, utilize a good screwdriver to take out the two mounting screws that attach the ice maker assembly to the compartment. Put the screws on the side. Take out the two mounting screws that attach the ice maker module to its door.
Take Out Ice Maker Assembly
Carefully push the ice maker and turn it upside down to reach the ground wires and harness connections. Press the locking tab on the wire harness and remove the wire harness from the connection.
Take out the screw, which connects the green ground wire to the ice maker assembly, and put the screw on the side. Pull the ice maker and put it aside so you can throw it away later.
Screw the Ground Wires
Install the new ice maker assembly in its compartment and screw the green ground wire to the new assembly. Screw them properly.
Connect Wire Harness
Attach the wire harness to the new ice maker assembly plug and press until the locking tab fits the locked position.
Install New Ice Maker
Turn the unit assembly right side up and place it in the compartment for the mounting holes to be in order. Fasten the mounting screws and secure them firmly.
Reinstall the Ice Bucket
Incline the top of the bin forward a bit and adjust it to the compartment. Shut the compartment and freezer door.
