2 out of 3 people found this instruction helpful

1) Shut off water supply
2) Pull out Refrigerator
3) Unplug
4) Unscrew back panel
5) Remove main water supply line
6) Remove bracket
7) Cut supply hoses 1 at a time and insert in new assembly in correponding openings
8) Reverse steps and enjoy

Notes: Judging by the new part's look, I suspect this repair will be needed again in about the same amount of time (5 years). The incoming pressure (I live in NYC) is probably too much for the way the part is built. Fortunately, now I know where to look , what to order and where to get it (great service, partselect.com!) it's no more then a 15 minute job.
