Once a glass is pressed against the actuator pad it will cause the dispenser to deliver ice or water when activated.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
There are several very helpful posts which do not need to be repeated. My only issue was the short water supply line. I found that I had to disconnect it to access the actuator for removal and replacement. It is quite difficult to reinsert the water line. Thankfully, a previous poster mentioned that you can drop the botton front panel of the regrigerator and push an inch or so of water line upwards to allow enough length to reinsert through the dispenser. That took about 2 minutes and saved the day. Overall a very uncomplicated job and no big deal to get done. I saved lots of money by doing it myself.

had to take off the dispenser asembly . removed the little pan that holds excess water which exposed the 3 screws. had to lift up on the outer ring to removethe cover then take out 3 more screws then unhook a wire harness to pull the bracket that holds water dispenser and then replace the part and put back together
e.g. First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. lay on table. removed 2 screws and small wire. Replaced the new one. Put everything back together like is was.
First I removed the 3 screws holding the front panel in place. Then removed 3 screws holding the board in place. I disconnected the bundle of wires on the left side of board to give me more room to work behind the board. There was enough slack in the water line to tilt the board down to work. I disconnect 2 screws holding the actuator in place, and disconnected it's wire harness. Put the new actuator in, and reversed the process. Took about 20 minutes. Works great.
Read repair instructions on line and did just what they said. I'm happy I did it myself.
Had to remove the handles, then take apart the pieces of the water to get to the part. Not too hard - but time consuming.
I can't believe how easy it was to repair the broken part on the fridge. It was broken for two month, until I decided to look into ordering the part, that led into checking out to see if I could do it myself. I didn't ask my husband for help (well I hardly do). I'm a handy woman.Thanks for the great service. I had the part in two days, and installed it immediate.
Just followed the instructions on your site. Remove the water tray, bezel and face plate (being careful with the wires) unscrewed the tab holding the actuator in removed it and slipped the new one in place.
My son first took it apart and tried gluing the piece back together. It did not hold, so we ordered the new part. After we got it, he put it all back together with the new part and it worked great! My son is 19, by the way.
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.
Pretty much followed the instructions from the previous Do-It -Yourselfers. It was easier than I thought it would be. I have some technical background, but it wasn't required. The toughest part was reconnecting the water hose to the outlet in the frame housing. I used a thin Allen wrench to reach up through the housing from the outside to guide the water hose back into place. Once it is aligned, it slips back into place. There is nothing but the tension of the fit to hold it in place. If my two yearr old wasn't "helping" me, I would have finished in 10 minutes. Thank You Part Select!
First I removed the two screws that hold the frame in place. Then I had to unscrew the board and pull the plugs so that the actuator could be installed. The most difficult part was to re-insert the water tube in its place. There is very little space. I used long nose pliers to push the tube through. You have to be careful not to touch the electrical board b/c it can shock you. After I replaced the frame, everything worked just fine.
