We had the coldest winter in 114 years in north Texas (must be global warming...) and our outdoor kitchen ice maker value assembly frozen and cracked.

1) Remove bottom panel screws using nut driver
2) Remove door screws
3) Unhook two power connectors from value assembly
4) Release water supply quick connects
5) Replace value
6) Re-install door - this is a a little tricky there is a spring on each side which slows the door when opening and this pulls the door down which means the screw are not properly aligned by default. You basically have to pull the door up( a second set of hands help) and attach the screws and then let it go.
