Hi!  As suggested by the subject line, I have a GE Refrigerator, model # PSC23SGPASS.  This is a side-by-side, with a water and ice dispenser in the freezer door.

Certain people < ahem > have overenthusiastically pressed the "water" and "cubed ice" buttons on the display panel on the freezer door (called an "interface display assembly) so that it is now cracked and ugly, and hurts your fingers when you try to make these selections, unless you have lots of callouses.

I have a replacement interface display panel on the way.  But how do I get the old one out?  Does it just pry loose from the freezer door somehow?  Is there a trick?  Or do I have to disassemble the door from the inside to get at the backside of the assembly to disconnect it or push it out the front?  Or something else?  The exploded diagram in the parts list isn't very clear about what's holding it in.  (It's part # WR55X10298 . ) 

Thanks!

Very easy task.

Use both hands, pull on the bottom of the display and it will pop right out. It may seem as if it will break, but I've never broken one.

Back to report that the replacement arrived, and, as you said, it couldn't have been easier. Others who are attempting this task should be advised that it goes from "even a chimp could do it" to "even the stupidest chimp you know could do it" if you (or the chimp) first removes the big plastic fascia that goes around the whole icemaker assembly on the outer door of the freezer (it just pulls off). Then, you can actually see the little tabs that are holding the display assembly in, and how to sort of slide it up and out form the bottom without snapping them. There are also three electrical connectors, held in with clips, which must be removed and then plugged into the new assembly, but it's impossible to screw it up. They are different sizes from one another, and can only go into their sockets one way. If you pulled the assembly out with WAY too much force, it might be possible to break one of these electrical connectors, so make sure your chimp understands that if he's pulling too hard (hard enough to hurt your fingers), he's probably doing it wrong.
