Refrigerator removal?

While preparing my coach for a trip to Florida next week, I filled the fresh water tank and turned the water pump on. I immediately heard water dripping outside. Long story short - it appears that the icemaker water/solenoid valve is bad on the Whirlpool residential refrigerator. I closed the water line valve leading to the icemaker, so I can still use the rest of water system.

I don't have time to get the coach back to the dealer before my trip, and it's such an easy DIY repair that I would do it myself. The replacement part is readily available from a number of suppliers. My question is - how difficult is it to pull out the refrigerator to reach the back where the water valve is? In other words, what holds the refrigerator in place?

On mine two brackets with sticky pad on top and two with screws on the bottom. Remove screws and pry sticky pad loose then roll the fridge out. Solenoid is on the lower left when looking at the front of the frdge

Yes, thanks again! On mine, they didn't use the sticky tape on the top brackets. Rather, they just used some tap screws down from the bracket into the top of the refrigerator. They were not very tight and certainly won't tighten up very much upon re-installation.
