My icemaker was leaking down the back wall of the freezer (side-by-side unit) building a huge ice flow that grew into the path of the circulation fan.

After turning the water off, I removed the two screws holding the cover on the lower back of the freezer. I disconnected the copper water supply line from the valve. I then removed the screw holding the valve in place and removed it from the freezer. I removed the two wires from the valve and placed them on the new valve (after inserting the clip inserts to match the new size tabs).I pulled the two plastic water lines out of the valve and inserted them into the new valve. I put the new valve in place and replaced the screw. Total time less than 15 minutes. Much easier to fix, than to identify the problem. The collective wisdom of the internet strikes again! Thanks to all.
