Ge Monogram - Z1sf480drjss - How the F do you remove dispenser display?

8 posts in this topic

So, on regular Ges there are 2 little holes underneath the dispenser display and you stick a little screwdriver into them and it pops out.

 

This display also has them, but the display is trapped by the trim that surrounds it, and that trim looks like its trapped by the door panel.

 

So it seems as if I will need to remove the door panel, to remove the trim, to remove the display??

 

Is that correct??

 

Also, service manual????

 

 

Thanks!!!!!!!!!

hey, I learned something myself on this one. I'd have never thought to remove the whole front panel.

I've run into that 2 times. The second time it happened I forgot what to do and there was no manual available. I was on the job but able to log on to Appliantology. There was an old thread where a master explained what needed to be done. It jogged my memory and I quickly removed the panels. This master's posts has helped me on several occasions but this one was special as I had an entire family watching the repair.

I got a rare chance to thank, in person, the master whose info helped me. I took him out for drinks, made him dinner and even let him sleep with my wife. Either you've guessed it by now or you think I'm a nut (or both) but the fact is that master was me!

There is so much information to remember as an appliance technician. One of the great things about this site is you can use it to record interesting and challenging repairs. I encourage you to not only ask and respond to questions here but also post repair procedures that you believe may be helpful to others as well as your future self.

Similar procedure is required for dispenser repairs on the Kitchenaid and Kitchenaid made Thermador built-ins with stainless door panels.  Have stubby, will travel.
