Water dripping from through the door water outlet and ice maker doesn't make ice.

I had two problems, the first was that water was dripping from the through the door outlet and the second problem is that the ice maker wasn't making ice.

Replacing the water valve was a simple process:

1. Turn off the water to the fridge at the household shutoff valve.
2. Move the fridge away from the wall.
3. Unplug the mains power (AC) plug from the wall power outlet.
4. Remove the 5 screws with a nut driver that hold the cardboard backing off the refrigerator.
5. (This is a great time to vacuum off the coils and underside of the fridge.) Disconnect the water supply from household plumbing with a box end wrench or channel lock pliers. I kept a large plastic cup and rag handy for the left over water in these hoses.
6. Remove the two screws from the water valve bracket on the right hand side and pull the water valve straight back from the fridge and line up the new valve in the same orientation.
7. Remove all the color coded electrical connectors (3 of them) and attach them to the new water valve.
8. Remove the remaining water hoses and attach them to the corresponding connectors on the new valve.
9. Dispose of the old valve and reinstall the new valve in reverse order.

The problem with the ice maker not making ice was because water was flowing so slowly from the valve that it was stopping in the fill tube at the back of the freezer and freezing stopping all water flow into the ice maker. I pulled the fill tube out of the back of the freezer from behind by rotating it 45 degrees counter clockwise and pulling straight out removing the ice blockage and drying the fill tube before I reinstalled.

Since I replaced the valve I had to take the cover off of the icemaker and set the water fill level down (screw toward the minus sign) and then adjusted it by checking the ice after each time it dropped and increasing the fill amount by 1 full turn (roughly 0.7 ounces) until it was just enough to make fully formed ice cubes.

There was a hole in the plastic bin where ice fell through to the freezer.

I removed the screws that held the the ice dispencer from the bin. I than removed three screws from the bottom of the bin. I put the new plastic piece on the end of the spiral piece that
pushes the ice. I inserted the spiral piece back into the hole. I than screwed the ice dispencer
to the bin and re-inserted it back in the refrigerator.
It took me about 5 to 10 minutes. It's really easy!

A 2" x 4" section on the bottom of the ice container bucket broke out.

Simply detached the old ice container by removing four screws and removing one screw holding the lever onto the bottom of the container. A bit of advice; make sure you note how the spring is attached to the lever before removing the screw. It took me a bit to determine how the spring activated the lever when I was reattaching it to the bottom of the container. Also, double check your order before you finalize it. I must have inadvertently hit the item twice so I received two of them. This resulted in me having to return one item and paying for extra shipping both ways. I received the part within two days of my order. It was a very fast turn-around. Also, when I realized that I received two parts and had to call to explain the situation, I found the person on the phone to be extremely helpful and courteous. She sent me information regarding how to return the product and didn't ridicule me once for my stupidity.

Cracked in the back

I removed the ice bucket from the freezer, took the front off with a screw driver, and then put the front on the new bucket and replaced it in the freezer. It was very easy.
