If I understand the pdfs you sent, I should be able to gain access to the parts from the front of the door, starting at step 3-10 Dispenser. It's not clear though that the pictures in this step really fits the mechanism that we have.
Thank you Kelly. The last image you sent does indeed pertain to our model refrigerator as I used the same image to order the replacement assembly 278A. Look forward to the new instruction sheet.
I don't mean to sound ungrateful but the picture you provided appears to show a front bezel assembly in which the cover stands proud of the refrigerator door itself. In our assembly everything is absolutely flush with the door surface. I could see no small pry holes of the kind shown in the above image.
I've taken a photo and am now trying to attach to this reply; didn't have much luck the first time. Think I got it this time.
I've been off watching some sports events. I did notice that the plastic bag that the repair parts Sears sent to me had an LG label on it; it was called the 'Funnel' assembly. The assembly PN# XXXXX ADW72930001 - whether that helps or not. Incidentally, I may have to shut-down the PC for the day; what do I do to track your potential responses?
I only now saw your post. In answer to your question I haven't found an answer yet so I would still appreciate assistance from one of the professionals.
No additional assistance is needed while I wait: I may have to break-off in a few minutes though - my day job!
I am willing to wait.
Thank you for using Just Answer. I will be glad to assist you in your answer. Think about safety when doing repairs, electric, water, gas, ect.
If you look under the display there maybe some slots the can are use to pry display off, the rest is obvious from there on. I do not believe this model is the one you grip and pull the whole assembly out at once. Please let me know of you see the slots that I am referring to....Thanks
I do see the slots: I had stuck a screw driver into each (some time ago) and did pry a bit but was unsure of what direction to pry.
Were you able to get the display apart, or do you need further assistance?
Yes - I was able to get the display off last night! I found that by inserting a flat-bladed screw driver into each slot then twisting released retaining prongs along the bottom. Thereafter, pried display edges on front of refrigerator. Actual part replacement very easy.
Thanks much for your help.
