How to Remove dispenser cover on LG LFX31925
« on: December 28, 2014, 04:07:46 PM »
A small piece that holds the water dispenser button broke off and was not repairable so I ordered a new dispenser cover. I have tried everything to try and remove the old cover without damaging the stainless surface of the fridge but can't get it off. Is there a trick to taking the old one off? A special tool I need? Does the ice chute need to be removed first? If so how does that come off?

Any advice is appreciated on how to remove this without damaging the fridge surface!

Thanks

much easier to remove the entire fountain assem. from the fridge to work on it.
I usually line the outer edge of the fountain assem. with two layers of painters tape, covering the very dentable thin stainless steel.
Then I use plastic automotive trim removal tools to wedge between the door liner and the fountain.
Starting at the bottom by the drip tray.
Domain and several others I know remove the drip tray, put on gloves that are very grippy(usually coated in a rubber) grip the drip  tray area and then simply pull. I'm not brave enough to try this method.
The fountain is held in place with snap in tabs. Once removed from the cavity of the door, you can unplug the connectors and walk away to work on the fountain.
