Here is what we have tried so far...and DO we ever appreciate all the advice (Yay!):
Tried to reverse the removal process (which was a fluke) by snapping the top part of the dispenser cover into the appropriate slots, but the three clips will not slide under the plastic door cover. Husband cracked the far left clip after applying FORCEFUL pressure, hoping a harder push would work. But I can live with two clips
if the other two would cooperate.
Used a putty knife to slightly lift the edge of freezer door cover (right above the dispenser) hoping remaining clips would snap in with a little nudge, but nothing.
Currently have the dispenser cover covering the dispensing unit via masking tape. LOL It will have to do until husband comes up with an option that does not
include completely remove the freezer door cover (eek!).
