Default Replacing Water Dispenser Actuator
Model Number: frs26dr7ds7   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have the part (241685703 actuator lighted black/clear) to replace the current broken one on my refrigerator, however the diagram shown on your site is not clear how to remove the front of the water/ice dispenser to get to the actuator I need to replace. Is there a more detailed schematic or step by step direction how to get into the controls of the ice/water dispenser? The refrigerator was manufactured in 04-05.

G P,

Here's a general teardown procedure from the service manual for your product, it covers several types of dispenser assemblies.

I'm sure you'll be able to work with it and the dispenser, and be up and running in no time.

Good Luck,






Two gain access to the control area you will need to pull the
drip tray out first.
With the drip tray removed, remove the 3 screws at the bottom
of the front panel
Lift up on the front panel, there are tabs on the top of the
panel that slide into holes in the door panel.
Swing panel out to side, being careful not to pull the wires
out of the disconnect plug or the board itself.
Carefully unplug the wiring harness from the touch panel on
the front cover. This will give you access to
the control board.
On models with no selector on the front panel, when you
remove the front you can gain access directly to dispenser
because you do not have a touch pad or board on dispenser.
On models with electronic control to gain access to the control,
snap the light socket loose and remove the 6 small screws
from the board.
Pull board straight out of housing. Disconnect plug on left
side of board. Disconnect 4 wires to dispenser actuator
switches
With the board removed, remove the 3 screws from the dispenser
housing and pull the dispenser forward.
Remove water line from dispenser housing by pulling straight
out.
With the water line removed, the upper part of the dispenser
is free of the freezer door panel. The main housing is part of
the door panel, and is not removable
The ice door and actuator switches, as well as the return
springs, can be serviced with the control module removed
The door closer is mounted on the side of the housing and connected to the door arm with a gear wheel to
slow the closing of the door. This allows
enough time for the ice to clear the chute. The door will take
approximately 20 seconds to close after the glass is removed
from the actuator.
The closer can be replaced by removing 3 screws and lifting
closer from housing. The door is held in place with a shaft at
the top. The spring that holds the door closed and sealed
against the housing is over the shaft and can be replaced by
using a small punch and removing the shaft.
Tension is held against both the water and ice actuator by a
stainless steel, two bladed spring mounted behind the
actuator switches. The spring is held in place with 2 screws.
The Actuators are held in place by stainless clamps at each
end of the actuator and the two bladed spring in the middle.
The actuators can be removed by removing
the 4 screws and lifting the paddle / ice chute out of the
housing
On models that only dispense water and ice cubes the dispenser
will come apart the same way as models with a control
board. The difference is there is no light in the housing and
the wiring to the actuator switches is connected directly the
plug in the door wiring harness.

Awesome instructions, I just did this in less than an hour. Hardest part was getting the hose back in which just took more force than I expected, and was a bit awkward.

Default Was on a roll....

I got all the way to the 3 screws to pull the panel out and one of those 3 screws was really hard to get out and now i have managed to strip it. Any help on what to do now? I have a completely full fridge that is unplugged and I am stuck.....I thought after reading everything that this was going to be an easy task.
thanks

Kreno, This is probably one of the screws that attach the dispenser switch housing to the dispenser body. There are several types of extractor tools, available at the local hardware, auto supply, and home improvement centers. Occasionally a smaller sized "torx" or "square drive" tip will work well enough to get the screw broken loose and removed. Either way you need to be careful, you don't want to damage any existing parts, and create more damage.
