How to remove the lever assembly from main assembly on touch pad assembly?
Answer Hello Jim. You will need to remove the assembly. To remove the dispenser cover you will need to remove the screw under the display cover. Then remove the display cover by pushing it to the right side and pulling it up. Disengage the housing connect of the display cover. Once removed, the levers unsnap from the assembly.
There seems to be no space on the sides of this part -DA97-08518D in order to slide in a putty knife to disengage the holding tabs.
How do I get this part out and replace the dispenser lever assembly part number DA97-08519A?
First thing to do is make sure that there is not a screw in the bottom of the part. If there is a screw then remove it and grab the cover assembly in the opening where the ice come out and give a good jerk. This should allow the cover to be released.
