My husband and I worked together on it. First of all we unplugged the refrigerator. We took off the outside frame of the water dispenser and unscrewed the inside. We did not unhook the ribbon tape however we did unplug the connections. My husband put on the new actuator which was very simple, two screws and done. He plugged the actuator back in and plugged the main cable back in. The tough and frustrating part was getting the water tube back in the hole. It is in a very tight and awkward position. It took several tries with needle nose pliers but we finally were able to get it. It took us about 1/2 to complete (20 minutes just to get the water tube in the hole). We are glad to have saved a service call!
