First unplug the fridge, then remove the grill exposing two torx head screws, remove these two screws then slide up cover, unplug small electrical connector at top of cover, then remove three more torx head screws, pull assembly forward leaving wire connector connected at left, note how water line is positioned, remove pad actuator, remove screw holding limit switch (small philips), remove small spade lugs on switch-replace switch, **Important, before installing pad actuator put small amount of sil-glide or white lube on the actuator post, this will prevent the actuator for switch from sticking on when depressed, put back together same order, works great.
