Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
The plastic lug holding the spring broke free, so the paddle had no way to return to its original position
1) Use plastic spudgers to remove the front control panel by levering on the front bottom of the plastic
2) Unscrew 4 retaining screws from the internal assembly
3) Slide clear plastic ice chute from the internal assembly
4) Lift the paddle 90 degrees to remove it
5) Place the spring on the paddle lug such that the long side fits in the groove on the back
6) Press the spring back, and slide the paddle into the paddle holder at a 90 degree angle
7) Once installed the short side of the spring should press against the plastic to force the paddle to its default position
8) Slide the ice chute back into the assembly
9) Replace the 4 screws holding the assembly to the refrigerator
10) Replace the front control panel

I may have missed a step here or there, but nothing major. Be mindful of the switches, and the placement of the wires. The entire process took maybe 5 minutes. I would say the most difficult part is getting the control panel off, it kind of feels like it might break, but it's a pretty robust piece.

Hi Mike, Thank you for your question. The installation is not usually very difficult. Here is a video of another paddle installation that is very similar to yours: https://youtu.be/NjtmHOnFm-o . You can definitely replace the part if you think you can do the repair. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.
