Water actuator (paddle) broke completely off.
Step 1. Unplug appliance
Step2. Remove freezer door handle. Ours is a 2 piece handle that I had to push downward on the bottom half to remove it, then remove screw holding top half of handle. Push upward on handle to remove too half.
Step 3. Remove drip pan from ice / water dispensing area
Step 4. Remove the 3 screws that were behind the drip pan
Step 5. Push upward to remove the face plate then disconnect the wiring harness attached to the face plate (about midway of the face plate)
Step 6. Remove the screws holding the mother board, disconnect wiring harness attached to mother board. Pull the dispenser section out to reveal the water line.
Step 7. Gently pull on white water line to remove it from the water dispenser. Remove the dispenser and place on flat surface.
Step 8. Notice how the springs are holding the old actuator in place before removing screws holding the old actuator in place .
Step 8. Replace broken actuator with new one using screws.
Step 9. Return the dispensing unit, leaving enough room to grasp the white water line and push it into the dispensing hole. This is very difficult, but do-able. I used long hemostats to reach in, grab the line and force the water line into the hole. Reconnect the wiring harness on side of dispensing unit and secure unit with screws.
Step 10. Reconnect face plate with screws, replace drip tray. Reattach handles.

Actuator broke
As in video except feeding water tube back into the actuator with needle nose pliers was difficult. To complete the job I inserted a short tap (could have used a wood screw) into the tube, fed it thru the opening and pulled it from the bottom with pliers.

Electrical Disconnect from Water Dispenser Escutcheon
My model was somewhat different than shown on the repair video. Initially it looked like my wiring was not removable from the escutcheon. Looking closer, I found a very small black connector attached to the back face of the escutcheon that could be carefully removed with just my fingers. This really helped to be able to disconnect and lay the part aside while doing the rest of the work. Having the video attached to the shipping confirmation email was very convenient. It saved having to locate it myself when the part arrived.

broken water dispenser actuator
I watched the video offered on how to replace my broken water dispenser actuator so when the part arrived a couple days later I felt very confident that I could handle the repair myself!! I followed the video's directions to the letter and it was as easy as I expected until it was time to get the small water hose back into place...it had to go back into a small spout at the front of the plastic frame. I tried several times to get it back in place with no luck but then I had a brain storm!!! I tied a long piece of dental floss to the small hose, threaded the floss through the small opening in the frame, put a small amount of Vaseline on the end of the water hose, put the frame work back in place and pulled on the dental floss until I saw that the water hose was back in place. I then put the rest of it back together by reversing the steps for taking it apart!! When my son heard what I had done with the dental floss, he started calling me "Momguyver"

very little room to feed tube thru dispenser
we looped a rubber band thru the hole from the bottom and pulled the tube end thru ....the rest of the online instructions were very plain and simple
