My Repair & Advice
This is an extremely easy repair. I am hoping this unit is an improvement over the original one. It installs exactly as the original part, but the design appears to be a little different, and I am hoping it lasts longer, and is less problematic. The units have an adjuster inside the left hand cover that controls the cycling of the unit. I had to adjust the old one on numerous occasions, as it would cycle too frequently and allow too much water to fill the tray, and would overflow and freeze. Adjusting the other direction would result in too small and too few ice cubes, and also the sweeper would freeze in the tray. This eventually wrecked the unit. Anyhow, if you are having these problems with your unit, this replacement is an easy task, particularly if you were like me, and had become a pro at taking it in and out every week to adjust it! Fingers crossed.
