Question:

How do you get the ribbon cable to stay in place?

Sue for model number 241685703
Answer:

Hi Sue, Thank you for your inquiry. Here is repair story from our website that refers to the ribbon cable. Unplugged refrigerator. Pull forward on tray at bottom of water & ice dispenser to remove it. Remove three screws. Push up and then pull out to remove black cover around dispensers. Be careful not to break ribbon cable. Pulled ribbon cable from green circuit card on the cover. Set the cover aside. Removed green circuit card from refigerator (six small screws). Had to unplug two wires to do this. Set this aside. Make sure you remember which connector each wire goes in for re-assembly. I ended up removing the entire assembly, it was easier to work on. There were a couple more screws to remove and then you can carefully pull the entire assembly down and toward you to remove it. This meant removing the water supply line from the dispenser. Pushed up on the water supply line with needle nose pliers to "unstick" it and make it easier to pull out. Used needle nose pliers to unplug wires from broken actuator from the circuit card. Make sure to unplug the correct one. Unscrewed the two screws that held the metal plates thet held the actuator in place. Cut the wires to make it easier to remove the broken actuator and pull the wires through Installed the new actuator and screws. Routed the wire through and plugged it in to the circuit card. Now the hardest part, and I would not have figured it out without a tip from this website. There was no slack in the water line and it was impossible to push the end of it back into the hole in the dispenser assembly. Open the refrigerator doors and remove the black cover at the bottom. The water line goes up through the freezer door from the bottom. It was easy to push an inch or two of slack up through the door. Then I could grab the water line and insert it in the hole in the dispenser. Re-connect the wires that were disconnected and replace the assembly in the freezer door. You can pull slack in the water supply line back down fr

Broken water dispenser actuator (snapped off)

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.

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.

Lever for water dispenser broke off

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.

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!

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.
