Unplug refrigerator, remove black tray, unscrew 3 screws to face plate/remove, remove screws to circuit board, unhook clip black/red wires of actuator that are connected to circuit board, disconnect white clip at left end, remove entire housing to get at actuator(be careful not to damage ribbon that connects circuit board to control face plate),pull out water hose if needed as it was extremely tight/awkward fit with little or no play in the line, remove two screws that hold actuator in & replace with new one. Note-once I pulled out water hose there was no play(tried gently pulling to get more play-no budge)-I had just enough to get to the hole entrance but could not get it in(spent 45 minutes with no success), called in local appliance tech, he had to go bottom of freezer door & remove black grill to expose hose & force up 1" this gave enough play to get into & through water dispensing hole. Wish I would of thought of that. reverse process.
