    Repair was quite simple and fixed part of the problem...it does dispense water now but I'm afraid the driver for ice dispensing is locked u. That part is expensive and I'll forgo dispensing ice.

    Problem was not the micro switch. The push arm was not making full contact with the micro switch.
    I added a self adhesive pad to the push arm to make full contact with the micro switch. Thanks to your video, it was a quick fix!
