Is it possible you can send a picture of the spec plate should be the left door? The number your provided is not showing anythingIf you cant find anything, then I will need a description is this a ice maker in front door or in the freezer

In the freezer
Expert:  ApplianceMAN replied 1 month ago.
Alright to turn on the ice maker you should see that there is a metal flap push this down and that will turn this unit on, you will also need to have the water line hooked to refrigerator.
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The only to access the ice is through the door on the outside freezer door or by taking the ice maker completely out.
