Refrigerator Repair – Replacing the Water Dispenser Actuator (Frigidaire Part # 241682003)

Hi! It’s Ervin from winnipeg-appliance-repair.ca. , we are going to explain you how to change the water dispenser actuator on your refrigerator, and that’s a really easy job. All we are going to need is a Phillips screwdriver.

Let me explain you how we do it. Now before we begin this repair, since we will be working near some electrical circuits, we will want to disconnect the power to the refrigerator. So pull it out far enough that you can pull the plug. Next, we are going to pull the little drip tray out from the dispenser area.

It is just a friction fit. So pull it straight forward, disengage it and pull it out of the way.
That will give us access to three Philips screws that hold this escutcheon to the door panel. So we will remove those three screws and next we will just lift straight up on that escutcheon.

It has a little clipped edge across the top that engages across the top of the dispenser. So we will then disconnect the wire harness and we could set that aside. Now next, we will remove three more Phillips screws that hold the assembly to the door panel.

And we will also need to pull the waterline up through from the spout of the dispenser. And if you can’t pull it out with your hand, we will just take a pair of Needle-nose pliers and just gently grasp that tubing and pull it straight up out of the opening. We should be able to pull that assembly out enough at this point that we can disconnect the harness on the left hand side. We can now take the assembly and set it on a suitable work surface where we can replace the part.

Now with the dispenser assembly on a suitable work surface, we will begin by just releasing that spring. Just pull that away from the lever and we are going to loosen the screw on that wide strap. We don’t need to remove it. We will just loosen it, and then we will remove the Phillips screw on the opposite side completely with the little strap.

At this point, we can tilt that old lever assembly out of the opening and discard the old one. We will line up the new one and make sure we get those two pivot points set down into the cradles. We will pre-position that wide strap and then we will tighten the screw on it and we will set the narrow strap in place and just start that screw by hand, and tighten it up. Then we will take that spring and we will just pull it in through the gap between the two pivots there and there is a little notch close to the arm on that lever that will hook that spring in.

Make sure that it engages the water dispenser switch and springs back to this idle position, and now we are ready to reinstall the assembly. Now when reassembling this dispenser assembly, we will reconnect the wire harness on the left side.

just gently grasp

We need to make sure that we get that waterline down into the spout area, so that it just protrudes below the opening. We will hold it up into place and then with a pair of needle-nose pliers, we could guide that tubing into the opening, and then carefully push the assembly back into position.

We may need to inch that tubing farther down into the opening. You can let it protrude below that spout that is beginning until we get amounted in place and then you can push it backup in position. We will replace the three screws that hold the assembly in place. Now carefully push that tubing back up, so there is just about flush.

Check the operations of both valves. Make sure they are not binding and then we can put the escutcheon back in place.

We will reconnect that 4-pin harness and tuck that safely into the opening.
