After finding my ice maker and ice bin over flowing with frozen water. I unthawed my freezer wiped it down and started over again, only to find the water flowing into the ice maker didn't stop flowing. I determined the problem to be with the DIspenser valve. To replace this vave was a 15 min. job. Shut off the water to the refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator. Remover the cardboard cover on the back of the frig. In the lower right hand corner of the frig is the dispenser valve. Remover the 2 screws holding it to the frig frame. Then it is just a matter of unplugging the 2 wires and unscrewing the 3 water lines from the old valve and placeing them in the same places in the new valve. Replace the cardboard,plug in the frig and turn the water back on. It did take a few ice making cycles for the ice maker arm to stop sticking in the up position. Very easy job!
