Turned off the water supply to the ice maker and unplugged the refrigerator. Pulled the refrigerator out of its location and removed the back panel. Located the leaking valve and removed the valve once the water lines and wire connections were disconnected. Just a couple of screws mounted the holding plate to the refrigerator. Ordered the parts and simply put everything back in place once the part came in. It was very simple to identify the valve on the parts list and order. The ice crusher cover could be removed from the front freezer door, it is part of the ice holder tray. The tray comes completely apart, and was a must to identify the correct part on the parts display. Once the part arrived, it took very little time to put it back together. All parts were exact and the repair was very rewarding to spend a minimal amount of money and time completing.
