Your answer does not address the problem.I saw this video befor I cantacted you.The problem is that depressing the tabs does not release the ice maker.I used a screw driver just like the video showed. Thanks

OK well I'm not sure what to say, that is exactly how you remove the icemaker, the video proves there are no other hidden tricks. Make sure that you use your screwdriver and pull the handle of the screwdriver OUT away from the icemaker to release the plastic tab above it because the tab needs to be pushed inwards. You'll need to just pry harder and pull harder. As I said, there are no "tricks" the video shows it all.
