Not dispensing Water or Ice
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!

Ice dispenser wont release the ice
Just like the video showed, the hardest part was getting the frame off first with the putty knife,then i removed the old micro switch and put the new on in and put it all back together and it still doesn't work.
