I noted this repair as easy and it is if you know what you are doing. I read the repair stories on line and thought I would give it a whirl. I ordered the part on line and in my haste I didn't even consider that I would need to order by color. I have a black appliance. To my dismay when the part came it was white. While waiting for the part I had attempted to find the small screws that would allow me to get to the repair site as described in the sucessful repair stories. There was no screws visible. The water pan on my model does not come out and there didn't seem to be any way to get to the actuator without prying off the ice and water portion of the frig. I was afraid to take a screwdriver to my frig as I didn't want to scratch it up . I decided to just call a repair man. He came with the black actuator. I returned the white actuator. The repair took about 15 min. He popped off the front which I was afraid to try and took out the three tiny screws and replaced the part. The total charge was $167.00. $75.00 of the charge was for diagnosis even thought I told that no diagnosis was needed. Part cost was $19.99 and th rest was labor.
