HELP! Ice maker water valve

I have a 2016 Hurricane 35C. Trying to locate the water shut off valve for the ice maker in the Whirlpool residential fridge . Blew the lines out last Fall to winterize. Just getting ready for first trip this year and water leaking bad behind fridge.

Thanks

Is the heater below the refrigerator? Take the grill off below the refrigerator. On my Windsport the cutoff is behind the grill.

I have a drawer under the fridge. Shutoff is acessible after removing the drawer.

2017 Challenger Bunkhouse : Shut off behind bottom drawer left of the fridge. May have to release drawer slides to fully remove drawer like we did. Found this out the hard was when we sprung a leak Click image for larger version

We had a very similar problem last spring. I had done the same EXCEPT a small bit of water was in the water valve. Just enough apparently to freeze the small bowl on the valve. In our Challenger the solution involve making a platform to pull the elevated refrig onto while changed the valve. UUGGHH.

Does anyone know how to access the back of the fridge? Guessing pull the trim and remove any brackets before sliding out to work on?

McQueenFamily - I can only speak from my experience on our coach. There are 2 brackets on the base of the refrigerator and another on the top. The 2 brackets on the base are fairly straightforward with clutch head screws. The top bracket is VERY goofy. On ours the top bracket was glued with some sort of mastic to the top of the refrig and screws up into the frame above the refrig. I actually used a putty knife to remove this bracket after removing the top screws. I did not have to remove any of the molding to get the frig out.

The frig is a standard residential frig with castor rollers on the base that allow easy movement of the frig. As I said, I built a platform and was able to roll the frig straight out. The water valve is standard stuff and is easily available from appliance repair shops.

Hope this helps - it is just based on our experience.

In the 2018 Palazzo 36.1, the shut off is under the stove (no oven units). Pull out the bottom drawer or take off the blank drawer front and the valve is there as is the outlet that the refrigerator plugs into.
