CustomerChristy from Bountiful UT

Actuator broken

The first thing I did was unplug the refrigerator for safety's sake. Then I made a mistake. I peeled off the module cover label. All I needed to do was pry the drip tray off to reveal the screw that holds the Module Cover in place. I used my fingernails to get under the botton edge of the tray then lifted it gently off. Then I unscrewed the Module Cover pulled it away from the freezer door and unplugged the electrical connection so I could set the Module Cover out of the way. I removed the broken piece of the original Acutator by unscrewing two tiny bolts from two tiny plates. That's where the tweezers came in. As soon as I took those little bolts out, the plates fell into a place where I could barely see them, let alone get into with my fingers. Once all the tiny pieces had been retrieved and put somewhere safe, I inserted the new Actuator up through the opening. The Actuator has an arm that sticks up and pushes against a spring to open the water flow. You'll want to make sure that arm is in front of the spring. The tricky task of screwing those two tiny plates back in took a while and a little swearing, since they now had pressure against them from the spring, but I was able to get it done with the help of a magnetized screwdriver. Then it was just a matter of plugging the electric cord back into the Module Cover and screwing the cover back into place, replacing the drip tray and sticking the label back on. The repair wasn't difficult it was just an extremely small space in which to work. The Drawer Support Rail and Refrigerator Door Shelf Bin popped in in about 30 seconds.

CustomerGEORGIA from SAPULPA OK

Water actuator needed replaced

First I removed the water drip tray. Next I removed the three screws on the bottom edge of the face. Then I removed the whole face, being careful not to break the tabs at the top of the face. Next I unplugged the small plug on the top of the back of the face. The face completely removes. Then I removed 3 more screws that hold the whole inside unit in place. One screw on each side and one on top. I gently pulled the unit far enough out to work behind it, but did not remove it all the way. Next you will see two small silver plates (one with 2 screws one with 1 screw). Remove those screws and plates. The actuator will come right out with little effort. Put the new actuator in, then reverse your steps to put it back together. Your done!

Broken water actuator

I followed the directions given on previous posts and it was no problem. My husband was out of town so I did it all by myself. The only tool needed was a Phillips head screw driver. Piece of cake!

CustomerDavid from Eau Claire WI

I broke the water actuator.

I removed the drip pan in the ice/water well. Then I removed the 3 screws holding the front control plate and disconected the front control from the ice/water dispenser.

I then removed the ice/water dispenser by removing 3 screws, disconecting the wire block and removing the water hose.

The actuatior was easily replaced (4 screws) and I reversed the whole process to put everything back together.

One other note, the actuatior had been redesigned and the replacement seems to be much stronger than the original... shouldn't have to do this again.

CustomerRobert from Rocky Moount NC

The flow actuator broke in half.

Ordered the part from PartSelect. Estimated time for slow delivery seven days. I got it in three. Removed the cover from the water and ice maker dispenser arena held on by three screes. I had to use an easy out on one rusted scree. Disconnected the wiring to the switches and lat the Circuit Board come forward by removing three small screws. Using tweezers to catch the screws, I removed two small screws holding the broken actuator and put the new one in its place making sure the spring was properly located and the ice maker swivel was under the hold-down strip along with the new actuator. I reassembled the door cover and got a drink of cold water. By the way, always unplug the refrigerator because that area is hot.

CustomerNatasha from East Meadow NY

Broken water activator

Unscrew it, rusted, but doable, install the new part, screw it back, the problem is to fit the little hose in the same hole properly, so we created a tool like a piece of wire to elongate it and make it fit again, screw the cover, and Eureka, like new. So happy.

Water actuator broke off

After removing the drip tray to expose the three screws i removed them. this allowed me to partially remove the unit from the door i was able to remove the two screws holding the actuator without removing the unit or the fill tube. I then installed new actuator and reassembled unit. Was surprised how easily it went.

Broken parts

My husband did the repair so I'm not sure about tools used; however, I placed the order and was EXTREMELY pleased with the ease of ordering and speed of delivery. Our order came the next day! The online directions made the water actuator repair so much easier! Only challenge, according to my husband, was the short water hose. Thanks for the great service!
