Does anyone have any experience with the freezer icemaker subbing over to the fresh food / refrigerator ice maker part number?

I ordered and received the sub part and didn't look at it until I got to the call. When I opened it I recognized it as the upper im. Since I had previously reattached the thermistor to the tray and the retainer had a broken clip, and it's been working since, I didn't want to uninstall the existing im again to examine it but the sub im will not work in it's place. I figured it was a parts listing error but all the sites I have used to look up the im shows it being subbed over to the one I received.

The upper im is longer, it mounts differently & the plug different.

Please help,

Get used to this.  Samsung is horrible at getting you the right part number.

TWO tricks to make samsung parts easier.
1. you MUST order parts off the BOM number NOTTTTT model number. (Build of materials)
2. you MUST take the revision number and use it xaa 0001
