I watched the video and removed the tray, but there were no screws underneath it! We tried prying it off with no luck, and then I read the directions from another customer. We removed the door handle, pressed down on the dispensing unit while using a flat head screwdriver to pry off the dispenser unit at the bottom (There are two little slots where the screwdriver fits perfectly.) I was afraid of the thing cracking since it is so old, but it did fine. This was the only hard part. After this was off, the rest of the repair followed the video exactly and it was super easy and took about 5 minutes! As I was detaching the old control bracket, I saw that it was completely broken on the right side. I knew then that this was the correct fix. It was an incredible moment when we tested the dispenser for the first time and water came shooting out! Thanks for your help on this - I would have never dreamed doing a repair like this before, and now i know I can do it.

Pulled the refridgerator out from the wall . Unplugged it and shut off the water supply. Removed the rear lower panel . Removed the 2 bolts holding the bracket to the frame. Took off all 3 plastic nuts and pulled the lines out. Had to drill the bracket hole to remove it from the smaller bracket. Cut off the ends of all 3 lines. Mounted the new valve to the bracket. Pushed the lines into the new valve connectors. Bolted the bracket back to the frame of the refridgerator. Turned on the water and checked for leaks. Reinstalled the back lower panel and plugged in the power. Tried the water and everything worked now.

Followed the lead of David from Chesterfield in prying off out cover, unplugging it and setting it aside. Unscrewed and pulled out next assemply, and taped it above work area to avoid having to unplug. The pried pulled out pin to right holding ice door hinge to remove old unit. (Notice which way the spring faces before removing!) Unplugged it. Ended up taking off push-dispenser handle (one screw on right) to get easier access. Then reinserted long pin being careful to have spring with two long tongs pointing down. Then put everything back together. USE ALL PARTS!

First I watched the video on how to do it, then I tried it. First I disconnected the electrical. Then 2 screws in the front. Opened the front and disconnected the electrical wires that are all color coated. Took out unit and replaced it with new one. Put the unit back and was finished. Thanks for the help with the video.

The only problem I had was the nut at the end turned the opposite direction. Once I realized that I took it apart in sequence and it went right back together. It helped me in that I slid all the parts off the auger shaft onto another small rod I had and then slid them right back on. Was no problem
