Samsung refrigerators are simple to work on. A handy DIY’er can tackle just about any Samsung refrigerator repair job. Often times the dispenser board will fail or get scuffed and need to be replaced. Removing the dispenser assembly is simple.  Samsung uses one Philip screw and four plastic tabs.

This reference is for  french door Samsung refrigerators with ice and water in the door. Look on the bottom side of the dispenser assembly, you will notice one screw. Removing the one screw and pulling out on the dispenser panel will release it. The panel has two tabs on the left and two on the right. These tabs are pushed into the housing tightly, when the panel is removed you will see how they insert into the assembly.

  7. I took the one screw out as mentioned and the panel seems to hard to pull out. Is there a video of the procedure? Thanks

    • Hi Philip, the panel is most likely iced in place..a blow dryer speeds up the process. Most people are unplugging their units and letting them thaw out for 24hr. Everything comes apart and goes back together much easier that way.

      Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it.
