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!

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 Sears.com, go to appliance then parts and post your model number you should get a breakdown of the dispenser that will guide you. Catriver..post back

Gaskets on this kind of faucets wear out often so you have to replace them, follow instructions
Fix a kohler faucet most likely the gasket broke inside the lever, you have to replace it. shut the water off from the angle stop (valve under the sink) both hot and cold. use an allen wrench ("L" wrench) to remove the tiny screw around the lever, >>>>before you do that place a rag covering the drain for if you drop it<<<< after that pull the lever out, that will show the inside of the faucet. use an adjustable wrench to remove the actuator from the base. when you get that part out you should be able to see the damage to the gasket. At that point you need a phillips screwdriver to get the gasket out and back in >>>>take the damaged gasket to the hardware store<<<< and get a replacement you may have to change more than one. after you get all the gaskets in place, reinsert the actuator and don't forget to tight it up with the adjustable wrench. center it so it would dispense the same amount of hot and cold water, replace the lever reinsert the tiny screw with the "L" wrench. turn on water from angle valves and test faucet. that should do it and save you about 300 bucks if it works for you don't forget to rate me
