Hi, all. My name is Victor. I have a very reliable KitchenAid 36" built in from 2004 I put in new (KSSS36QMX01). Icemaker valve started leaking into the icemaker bin, and freezing up the tube. I have it shut off at the supply, and the part looks easy enough to change, but accessing it is near impossible without removing the refrigerator and lifting it up on blocks. There is a cover panel covering the inlet valve and I can't physically fit my hand or a tool to get the last screw out of the panel. The valve does not come out from the front far enough for me to undo the outlet tubes.

Anyone here have experience on these, or is there a service manual available that would go through steps to service in place? I'll pull it out if I need to, but I'd like to avoid it.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have seen the other thread that shows servicing of this valve, but there's no cover blocking it.
