thanx for response, let me run through this ,I removed the control panel which has buttons and digital screen ie, temp control and stuff, this panel just pulls off, im left with dispenser unit,it has around 8 screws around it,once I had them out there was a small amount of movement ,I proceeded to lever out the whole unit but it seemed to be held in by some spongey yellow stuff and I could see some glue resadule around unit. there was more give on it by then ,the tube that runs out at bottom of door does need replacing as it is split at bottom flush with hinge slot ,not enough to work with. if I manage to remove unit,when putting back do I use a silicone to seal in, if you don't mind sending info my e-mail ; flexiplumber at gmail.com I am sure model no is KE 580-1-2TPW, its American style. manufact- kuppersbusch
silver.any info would be great. thanx
thanx,I get what your saying,i can assume that you don't recommend trying to remove unit,i think that the plastic pipe might be damaged up by the dispencer as there is defo water leaking when water function is activated, this could have been caused by me or the owner as he was present at time of visit and saw the dilemma,if I can not gain internal acsess then I assume the door comes as a seald pakage,with dispencer seald in, in your opinion and as this repair will be more common sense with good intentions,would you try to remove dispenser unit if pos.
I would take the repair route as you have nothing to lose, the cost of a new door is in excess of £400 and with gentle application you should be able to repair this one, worst that you can do is have to glue something back in place ~ Would you now kindly rate my information to you, once done all further questions are free of charge but it lets me shut the job down on the system ~ Ping me when you have things done and let me know how you got on ~~ Ian
