Handle replacement for water dispenser

I own a Frigidaire FRS-23R4A and the handle on the water dispenser broke off. I bought the handle (actuator) but I have not found a way to get the front cover off where the ice/water dispenser sits to repair. I have tried taking the foam insulation opff that it's inside the freezer but did not see any screws. Does the cover snaps off from the inside? I have tried that unsucessfully too but I hate to break that off. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks, Melissa

Re: Handle replacement for water dispenser

Melissa, you don't get it from the inside. Remove the drip tray by pulling it out. You should see two screws holding the dispenser cover on each side of the bottom. Remove these screws and push up on the dispenser cover, there's 3 hooks on the top. Unplug the harness from the dispenser board and get the cover out of the way. Now is the hard part. You have to get at the module itself that holds the paddle. These can be a fight. If you go to, go to appliance then parts and post your model number you should get a breakdown of the dispenser that will guide you. back

Exterior finish on stainless steel model peeling

Just a thought. Our frigidaire stainless steel refrigerator came with a temorary protective film on the steel parts that we peeled off after it was installed. Is it possible you never removed your film when you got your refrigerator? That may be what is starting to peel off now. Again, just a thought, I could be wrong.
