I had the same problem with my water dispenser and since they were willing to sell me a part but provided no directions and I couldn't locate any I decided to make my own for those who might need them. Here is a link to a PDF I made, hope it helps.

Before starting this job I would also like to warn all to please be save and UNPLUG the fridge. The whole job took me less then 30 minutes and I doubt anything will go bad in that amount of time.

How do I get the kneeding blade out of the bread machine?


soak the paddle in soapy water overnight with enough water to keep the paddle submerged. The next day wiggle it back and forth while holding the litte ears underneathe the pan. Move it up and down too. If it still doesn't break free go to you tube and type "how to remove a stuck bread machine paddle" have your husband do that move, but don' use more than one jug of water because the TBR15 pan is thin and can bend. Be sure your husband uses hot pads to hold the pan edges so he doesn't hurt his fingers. If that method doesn't work you will have to live with a stuck paddle or order a new pan assembly and paddle and then always remember to remove to soak your paddle after baking and remove it from
the stem, clean, and store. Daryl,,, from breadmachineshelp.com

How to remove water filter paddle for ge fridge


From the looks of the illustration you'll have to first pop the trim off from around the dispenser area using a small flat head screw driver. Once that is done remove the control panel, which is sometimes held there in place with a screw from bottom area of the board. Lift the board out of the retainer that holds it in place and you disconnect any wiring to remove it completely. Once that is out of the way you should have access to the paddle to replace it. Be sure that the machine is unplugged when you start, don't want to get shocked

Ice and water dispenser stopped working


Welcome to the computer world. When depressed, the paddle actuates a switch attached to the bracket above. The switch sends a low voltage signal to a small circuit board mouted right behind the display. A computer chip on that small board communicates with another chip on the main control board mounted in the rear wall. Your situation could be a bad actuator switch, a broken paddle tab, possibly a bad door switch (the fresh food doors must be closed to dispense), or a bad electronic control.

Whirlpool gold refrigerator icemaker leaking water


hi there,

sounds like the ice or water actuator or paddle is broken. purchase a new paddle and replace it.

the reason you have leak is because you have warm air entering through the broken part into the freezer.

can you provide me with the model # and i will send you a part breakdown.
