Broken water actuator paddle

You pull out the tray at the bottom of the space in the freezer door where the ice and water are dispensed. The tray didn't come out easily, but don't be afraid of breaking anything. It is a simple interference fit. Then remove the two phillips screws at the bottom of the face plate and lift it gently. It can dangle from it's electrical connector while you do the rest of the job. Remove three phillips screws that hold the rest of the assembly in place. No need to completely remove the assembly. Do not disconnect the water tube. Disconnect the power plug at the left so that you can pull it out a little farther and not have to worry about shorting anything. The water actuator is secured by two small plates with two phillips screws and there is a spring too. Remove the screws and plates. There is also an electrical connection. The wires were installed under a relay at the factory so I had to trace the wires, disconnect the plug, and then snip the wires to remove. It's crowded in there so you have to work it around to get the actuator out. Then replace it with the new actuator. Reconnect the electrical and make sure the spring is in place. Then just go backwards. Put the plates back on, reconnect the power plug, screw the assembly back in, put the face plate back on, and slide in the tray back in. You might want to test the water and ice after you reattach the assembly but before the face plate. I needed the hemostat when I dropped one of the screws into the assembly. Needle nose pliers would work just as well or just don't drop anything.

Water actuator broke due to extreme pressure in trying to make water run quicker

Remove the housing holding the sensors and actuador. The white sensor tape came off the command console, however this was easily replaced by removing the console cover and inserted the tape back. At first the fridge console (lights) did not respond, removed the tape again and re-installed the right way. The most difficult part was trying to push the small hose to fit through the housing and stay in place. In the beginning water was coming out through several places, but removed the housing again, fudgec with the little hose until it fitted snuggly into water dispensing opening. Replaced housing again, screwed all little screws and repair work was complete. The most difficult part was getting a tool that would allow you to guide the hose. Used a fine small plyer to pull through.
Works perfectly now.
