My first try was to replace the water inlet valve. New valve was a good bit different than the original but not too hard to figure out. The main water inlet is on the inside rather than the outside. Flex hose and a stick in connector were included and I was able to work through that. But, when I turned it on the water still over flowed. The only thing left was the Ice maker. I ordered a new one. It came broken into several pieces. I ordered another, it arrived overnight with expediated shipping. install took maybe 15 minutes. problem solved. The company refunded me the full charge for the damaged ice maker and most of the charge for expediated shipping on the replacement. I'm happy and my wifes very happy.
