Thanks to you, I have removed the ice maker. Without your advice, I would still be looking at it and wondering if it was something I could do.
I thank you and my wife thanks you, now if I can locate some of the wire shelving to fit the fridge, I will be all set.

One easy to do option you have is to turn the valve to off on the ice maker water feed line you find via the outside refrig. access panel. After doing this you can now go to the freezer compartment and remove the ice maker face plate by pulling on the end of it firmly. Now, you will see the ice maker is attached to the freezer wall with 2 or 3 screws. Carefully remove the screws and this will free up the ice maker. Now disconnect the 2 wires going to the ice maker and tape them so they look decent and so they do not short on each other. Now, just disconnect the water feed line at the ice maker itself. Usually connection is a snap on type connector.
Ok, once all is gently disconnected the task is completed. Neaten all up and you will have lots more room in the freezer but yes have some connections visible. With this though you can easily reinstall the ice maker when you resell, etc.. Other option if you want to get radical and have no way to go back to factory is to cut off the connections in the freezer box, push the ends back out of the freezer and re-caulk the holes.. MOST people will do the not so radical method I mentioned and leave things so you can easily re-connect the ice maker if desired. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
