Since we will be working with water and do have an electrical connection nearby, it will be best to unplug the refrigerator to do this repair. It should only take about 15-20 minutes to complete the repair so your contents in the refrigerator should be fine.
1-SImply pull your referigerator away from the wall and unplug it.
2-Locate water supply valve and turn off water to refrigerator by closing the water valve.
3-Remove two 1/4" screws that hold the black "cardboard" cover at the bottom right corner of refrigerator.
4-Then locate the two 1/4" screws holding a light blue valve assembly, again in the bottom right corner of refrigerator. Remove screws and assembly will be loose.
5- Remove water line from the top of the valve assembly you just loosened.
6-Then unscrew the large plastic nut on bottom of valve assembly.
7-Unplug the electrical connector that is on the top of the valve assembly.
8-Install the new valve by reversing the installation. Plug in electrical connector, tighten water line on bottom of assembly, re-attach/tighten main water line on top of assembly- and re-attach valve assembly to refrigerator and re-install cardboard cover. Turn on water supply to refrigerator and check for leaks. Don't forget to plug the refrigerator back in.
Thats it! Problem solved!
