ANSWER Ricardo, Here are some instructions : Water Tank Assembly (some models) 1. Remove crisper drawers from fresh food compartment. 2. Remove hex screw holding water tank to rear bulkhead. 3. On rear of cabinent remove hex screws holding water valve cover plate. 4. Remove plate and tubing away from cabinet to expose water valves and tubing. 5. Disconnect water tube from secondary valve coming from water tank, remove compression nut from tubing. 6. On front of unit remove toe grill and disconnect water coupler going to water dispenser 7. Remove compression nut from water tubing on cabinet side of connection. 8. From rear of cabinet pull water tube out of conduit going to dispenser. 9. From inside of fresh food compartment pull tubing up and out of cabinet to complete removal of water tank. 10. Reverse procedure to reassemble. Of course you need to unplug the power cord or turn the power off to the refrigerator, but I'm sure this will get you through the repair. Thanks and Good Luck
