Part broke during normal usage. Removed ice/water dispenser face plates by drilling out rusted screws (original should have been stainless). Removed dispenser assembly to work bench. Stuffed paper towels in ice chute to keep heat from entering into freezer section. Tried to epoxy old actuator, but was unsuccessful. Actuator broken at it's weakest point. Ordered part number as identified in the parts breakdown. Received wrong part. The right part had to be back ordered. Repaired plastic areas out old rusted screws. Bought all new stainless screws. Received actuator after 10 days. Installed part in dispenser at work bench. Installed dispenser in reverse order. Problem solved. Note, care should be taken to remember the order of removing parts ot make sure the assembly does not bind the switches.
