Broken drinking water actuator

It's a good idea to unplug the fridge before you start. There are lots of wires and circuit boards in the area where you will be working.

To remove the in door water / Ice dispenser cover, remove drip tray, remove a couple of screws at the bottom and slide the cover up to release the tabs. There are a few scews holding the mechanism housing, remove them and gently pull the housing forward. You should be able to see the top iof the actuator. The actuator is held in place by 2 small metal plates, each with two small screws. Note the location of the return spring on the actuator arm! You will need to orient it the same way on the new actuator arm. Remove the screws and plates and lift out the broken actuator.

Put the new actuator in place and orient the spring as before. Replace the plates and screws and put everything back together.

If you have big hands, everything is a bit tight so, a small magnetized philips screwdriver or a screwholding screwdriver will make for easy work. I used a little scotch tape to hold the screw to the screw driver and it worked but, it took a few tries. Good Luck!
