remove the head off of it, and install it onto your existing mold.

Not to be a stick in the mud, but I think this would also void any warranty on the new ice maker.

Hey guys. This thread has been super helpful. I have the same issue with the white clip breaking off on the control head. I'm thinking of trying to pick up one at Lowes as previously mentioned.

However, my question is, if I decide to purchase a new one online, do I have to get the whole Icemaker, ie; Part # 2198597 for $121.00

 or can I just replace the control head ie; Part #628135 for $57.00

I really appreciate your time and help

Thanks.

If the white clip is the only thing broken, thats all you will need to change.  So go on ahead an order just the head.

Hey guys, its been awhile but I finally got a working icemaker. A friend had one that he bought for his 2nd fridge but never used it. The problem is it has the metal on off bar installed. How do I remove that?

Also, the water inlet cup on the end (the white cup looking thing that the water pours into), I need to put that on from my icemaker because the one he has had the knockout removed so it might leak water with my setup.
