The ice/water dispenser was stuck in "on" position and would not stop discharging ice cubes. First I removed the dispenser grill and face plate (2 screws at bottom of plate under grill). Then, I unscrewed and removed the ice/water selector switch (2 screws). Then, I removed the ice/water dispenser assembly (1 screw over actuator pad and 1 screw over ice/water selector switch). Then I pulled and replaced the actuator switch (1 screw). Then I replaced the actuator pad (just slips over - not screws) and put everything back together. It was really very easy. You just need to get the correct size torx driver.
the entire assembly was removed using some small hex and torx wrenches. I am not a refrigeration expert and had no diagram but this was very intuitive to replace all the parts above. I figured I would replace all these other related parts while I was digging around in there.One thing to watch out for is to label the wires going into the switches before you take the old one out. You do not want to wire them up wrong, so use a sharpie to label the colors before disassembly.Also take the time to clean the parts in soap/bleach to clean all the years of filth that accumulate.I replaced all the parts above and cleaned everything well in under 20 minutes. Saved a fortune thanks to partselect!
