I started by shutting off water supply and unplugged refrigerator. Then using a nutdriver removed back lower panel exposing the dual inlet water valve on the left side which was held in place with one bolt. After unbolting the valve you can pull the entire assembly out enough to remove the three water connections. The instructions suggest cutting of about 1/2" off of the two discharge lines to provide a better connection to the new valve. The entire process was very simple. The price of the part was a small fraction of the new refrigerator my wife was threatening to buy if I did not get her ice maker working again. Thanks for another great repair experience!
