Water/ice actuator would stick and stay on

Be sure to unplug the fridge as there is live power on the circuit board you'll be handling/removing. Trust me on this.

Slide out the ice tray, remove the screws holding on the outer plastic frame (taking the thin/flat wiring off carefully), remove the next set of screws, then slide off the mechanism. The water spout is flexible and you might need to bend it a little. Good time to clean it off as well.

Changing the actuator switch and plastic pad is mostly self explanatory (look at old one, remove, and reverse steps to put new one). Takes about 30-seconds for this part.

Water fountain and ice dispenser would sometimes stick on

Removed the face plate by removing the two screws under the fountain catch tray on the front of the fridge, and then sliding the cover up and off. Removed 3 screws to remove the dispenser and the limit switch was easily accessible on the back side. Also changed the actuator pad because the old one looked cosmetically bad.
