How do I replace the dispensing paddle on an Electrolux side-by-side refrigerator?
Hi There

Can you post both the model number and PNC number so that we can check.

Hi There

Is the paddle the thing with fingers on it that dispenses the ice cubes.

The paddle is the plastic piece you push on to despense ice or water. My water paddle is broken, I have the new one but not sure how to get to it. It plugs into an electrical area, so it must be behind the actual water/ice dispenser but not sure how to pull that off the front of the frig.
Hi There

I've checked the drawing and I can see that the paddle for dispensing the water is the one nearest the front.
If you look at the drawing HERE
you can see the paddle item 24. This pivots on to hinge plates item 38A.
You will have to strip the assembly down by taking off the front fascia panel 4.
Item 8 should house both the water and ice dispensing paddles.

Hope that helps.
