Unplugged the unit, took the back lower panel off, disconnected the feed water line (water was off at this time) undid the connections to the water valve, removed the water valve, installed the new valve, the water line, turned on the water, tested for leaks, no leaks, reinstalled the rear panel and plugged the unit back in, about 15 min later ice was making.
