I think the drip pan is cracked. What is the best way to remove and replace. You mention 'tilt' the fridge, which way and how much? Or lower the base, but how much? And what do I need to do for my model? Thank you. JC

ANSWER Jules, To replace the drip pan on the unit you would access it from the front but would need to pull the unit out. You will want to remove the lower cover in the back and remove the water valve and disconnect the tubing that goes to the filter assembly. Make sure that the water supply is turned off. Once water tube is removed, go to the front of the unit and remove the kickplate and the 2 screws holding the water filter assembly in place. Once removed then pull the housing out. With the housing out you should be able to pull the drain pan out and install the new one and reassemble the unit.
