First Shut off Water supply from wall/valve. Turned off Ice maker switch interior freezer compartment. Removed power cord from wall plug, important for safety due to close proximity of cooling fan to valve, and resets electrical cycle to new valve to start water flow to ice maker once replaced. Removed lower back cardboard access to frig with nut driver, cleaned all (dust-bunnies)from coils, drip pan and all areas under frig with shop vac. Remove 2 screws (same size nut as cardboard back) to remove valve bracket from mount. This model frig had push release connectors so was even easier than expected, push collars up and pull out tubing, (residual water came out so have towel handy) had new valve positioned exactly how would reinstall so just pushed water line into new valve connector, then repeated process for all 3 water lines. Last unplugged electrical connectors and plugged into new valve in same position. Reattached new valve to mount w/2 screws, turned on water supply to check connections for leaks. (Finding none) Plugged electrical cord back into wall, used water pitcher to cycle water thru door water dispenser, waited for first cycle of water to fill ice maker. So easy and quick.
