You'll need to roll the refrigerator out, enough to get behind the unit, and unplug the power cord.

You'll need to remove the lower (black) compartment cover.

Depending on the installation, now is a good time to turn off the water supply to the refrigerator fill valve,( you may have to trace the line back to the water supply shut off valve).

Make sure, you have the new fill valve in hand before you remove it, it'll be easier.

Once you have the fill valve out, you should be able to switch wire for wire and tube for tube, and reinstall the assembly, it should only take you a few minutes.

Before you reconnect the water supply line, I reccomed you open the supply shut off valve, full open, and flush a few of gallons of water thru the line, then connect it up to the valve, and plug the power cord back into the outlet.

Use a large container, and dispense a couple of quarts of water from the water dispenser in the door, then move the fridge back to it's original position.

It should'nt take very long, and can be done with basic handtools.

Thanks for allowing to assist you,
