2 out of 3 people found this instruction helpful

1.Turn off the water supply.

2.Removed the front cover where the ice and water is dispensed.
3.Removed the black plate over the dispensing area to allow more working room. ( 3 flat head screws)
4.Removed the 2 phillips screws holding the end of the water dispensing tube. This will allow you to get the dispensing arm over the water tube.
5. Removed the screw that holds the spring in place.
6. Its real tricky, but you have to place the spring onto the arm so that the tension will cause the arm to move forward when released, shuting off the flow of water. At the same time replace the screw thats holds the spring in place.
7. Reattache the 2 crews holding the end of the dispensing tube, the 3 screws holding the black plate, replace the front cover, turn the water back on and have yourself a cool drink of water.
