Our Refirgerator had custome wood covering to match the cabinets. Be sure to take the covering off first. There are four screws on the left edge fram that need to be removed and two on top of the tpe edge frame. The panels then slide right off. Remove the spill tray and unscew the two screws at the bottom. Slide up the key pad and there are three screws behind the key pad that have to come out. There are two "plug in connections that have to be disconnected to lift the dispenser unit out. Take care not to damage or separate the connector wire from the keypad and the circuitboard.

The new solenoid and flapper assembly is different than the original. My guess is the orginal design was part of the problem and the redesign allows the solenoid to work better. I was suprised the new assembly did not come with a tension spring... SO be careful and DO NOT loose the tension spring from the old assembly. there are two screws that hold the olde solenoid in plae wonce you remove the flapper and tension spring. Put the new solenoid in, hold the tapper out and put the flapper assembly in. Rotate the flapper rod until you can seat the solenoid tapper. Replace the tension Spring and then reassemble as in reverse order.
