Ice water dispenser

Hi All, With all due respect I kinda need someone that has actually disassembled the ice-water dispensing unit on the front of a Fridgedaire model PHSC39EHSS2 re-fer so as they will be familiar with the part in mention. When trying to remove the cover of the unit there is a ribbon type electrical connector that needs to be removed so the cover can be moved out of the way. The problem is that this ribbon seems to have a very small, or a unique connection into the circuit boards. It does not look like a normal type plug where it connects. It is very small and very flat...(ribbon like...LOL). What I need to know is does this connector just plug into the circuit boards and it can just be GENTLY pulled out, or is there something else connecting this ribbon to the circuit board ? I don't want to start tugging on it until i'm sure that its that simple to remove. Thanks

Most ribbon cables will gently pull out of connector,

The board in the picture should be the same one you have. Sometimes the cable just pulls out.

If the connector on your board looks like this one.... the two whitish/yellow catches slide in the direction of the red arrows to release the cable.
