First removed the grill from the fountain. Then removed the 2 screws, raised the escutcheon up and off the fountain assembly. Disconnected the power connection to the escutcheon and laid it aside. Removed the 3 screws holding the fountain assembly and disconnected the power supply from it. Removed the broken door pieces. Removed the 2 screws from the solenoid and replaced with new one and replaced the screws. The instructions said to rotate the spring counter clockwise 1/2 turn but I had to rotate it a full turn (to make the door tight when it closed) and insert the end of the spring in the opening of the fountain bracket. Insert the solenoid plunger into the recess of the door strike (the diagram in the instructions helped because this was the part that was broken and I could not figure out where it went). Then I installed everything back the way I had taken it apart.
I am a 61 year old woman and pretty good at taking things apart and putting it back together. My husband usually lets me fix things because I have more patience than him.
I would like to thank parts select for their packaging of the parts and the included diagram.
