Easy install, need to buy kit to attach to water supply
I'm thrilled I finally bought this ice maker and can't believe it took me a decade to do so. Installation was easy. Hardest part was deciphering exactly where the leveling screw went. I finally decided, correctly, that I needed to use the self threading machine screw to screw it into one of the holes in the bottom of the ice maker. It wasn't hard but I wanted to make sure I didn't put it in the wrong spot and wind up damaging the ice maker.
I didn't realize that I would need to purchase a connection kit to connect the water supply to the valve at the bottom of the refrigerator. Not a big deal. Quick trip to lowes and I was in business. Once connected it started making making it's first batch of ice after 20 min or so. I was in heaven! I actually sat watching the ice maker for several minutes. In the 48 hours it's been installed we have a full bucket of ice. No issues with funny tasting ice, small cubes, slow ice production, etc.
Two years later and it's still humming along, happily making ice cubes. We've had zero issues.

Easy to install
By This is crazy
I have a Frigidaire frig that didn't come with and ice maker. I really didn't need one for awhile because I needed the extra freezer space. I just bought an up right freeze and realized I could now get an ice maker. I found this one and decided to buy it since it wasn't that expensive(I was thinking they would cost a lot more). It took me about 20-25 minutes to install it. It took me a little long because I couldn't find the wire for the solenoid. The wire on my frig was cable tied to the back of the frig's coils. Got it all hooked up and its making ice. Now I don't have to make sure I always have cold drinks in the frig.

Works with Sears/Kenmoor
By Robin K
After some research it appeared this unit works with the Sear 253 model series. All the refrigerator connectors, plugs, and throughholes and screw holes are as described and fit exactly this ice maker. The instructions were reasonably detailed and accurate and it took about 1 hour to install. It comes with all the parts needed to mount to the refrigerator but does not come with the kit to connect to the cold water tap. There is a small bracket with a slotted hole to adjust the level of the ice maker in the freezer. While tightening that bracket the head of the screw snapped off. No problem as I just used a small wedge to level the ice maker about the 1/4 inch it needed. After about 4 hours the first load of ice dropped into the bucket.
