Turned off saddle value in basement which is the water supply for fridge. after pulling the refrigerator away from wall, I used a nut driver to take off back cardboard panel. next I pulled the entire (2 values conneted by bracket) assembly out after unscrewing 1 screw. I then used a wrench to disconnect copper tubing water supply. Have a towel to collect and dry and water from tubing which may come out. Next I very easily pulled out 3 plastic tubes which supply water and ice machine. Assembly is now free. Took the new assembly and added the plastic tubes making sure they went back to same value holes. Reconnected copper tubing (water supply)with wrench. Gently pushed assembly back into fridge compartment and reattached the 1 screw. Replaced cardboard panels with nutdriver. Pushed fridge back in. Went downstairs and turned water supply back on. Success. no drip, water supply good and ice was being made again. Time elasped... approximately 10 minutes. And my repair company wanted to charge me $395 plus tax. yeah, whatever. very easy task. do not be intimidated
