You can not remove the icemaker in this refrigerator. This is the most over designed icemaker to ever hit the market and those are freon lines which are built into the entire sealed system. The icemaker doesn't remove and this icemaker was only built for 1 year before Frigidaire decided to change out the icemaker for a traditional Samsung icemaker with no freon line and such. You can not convert your current unit to the new style however. It's just really unfortunate that you bought it the first year Frigidaire came out with a french door refrigerator, but that is why you have this style of icemaker.

You appear to be on a membership, I'm not sure what the charges are, but the unit can be fixed. I'm not sure why you're trying to remove the icemaker but removing the icemaker is not an option I'm sorry to say.
So, I can understand why people don't want to work on them. I was trained by Frigidaire factory and I definitely didn't like seeing them at first. But as time goes on I am one of the few that understand them well. The problem is---I can fix the icemaker but I can't make it more reliable. It will continue to fail. That is the problem with being too complicated and over designed. These icemaker tend to fail about once a year whether it's a switch or a motor or even the freon system hot gas valve---they just fail. I'm sorry about the situation your in but I hope you understand that this is not something I can control. These are just the cards that both you and I are dealt.
