How to take apart the water/ice dispenser from the front of the refrigerator? Can you go step by step for me please?
Answer Hi Patricia. Remove power. Remove the top hinge cover. Unhook the electrical connector. Remove the fountain spill catcher and screws that hold the outer fountain. The fountain lifts up and out. The electrical switch connectors need to be marked before you disconnect them. There are screws around the inner fountain cover you will remove. And that is what you do is just keep removing covers until you access the part needed changed. Reassemble in reverse order. Thank you.
When I was drawing water from the door dispenser, I heard a click and the water stopped and would not run again. Before this when we drew water out a little was leaking out under the refridgerator.
Answer Hi Pat. Is it the actuator arm that "clicked" and possibly broke? It may not be contacting the fountain switch to activate the water valve to send the water. This arm is part # 12002642. The 1/4" water tubing under the freezer door is part # B5705307. The connector needed is part # B5706901. These parts will dry rot and get brittle and break. Thank you.
