CustomerJulian from Bethlehem PA

Broken water lever

Just as mentioned in other messages, unplug unit, then the front panel is removed via screws on the bottom of the front facing and slid up and out. While the panel was held in place by another set of hands (due to a ribbon cable), the three screws of the inside panel were removed to gain access to the ice and water lever housings. Playing with these carefully as they are attached by wires and the water supply hose the actuator lever can be removed (loosen the two small screws holding the pivots in place) and the new paddle weaseled into place so no additional disassembly has to be done. Note the spring attachment to the side-lever of the actuator too...and easy step.
Reverse disassembly and plug unit back in...good as new.

The water actuator broke.

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.

Broke the actuator in the middle

Had to remove the handles, then take apart the pieces of the water to get to the part. Not too hard - but time consuming.

Broken water dispenser

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.

CustomerKEVIN from NEW LENOX IL

Water actuator broke off

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.

CustomerTODD from Southington CT

Water actuator flap snapped

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!

CustomerIsabel from Miami FL

The water actuator was broken

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.
