The sensor cover and insulator came loose and fell into the ice cube bin where the dispensor worm gear chewed them up

My Repair & Advice
The molded foam insulator is no longer available, according to LG and other suppliers. I was able to order the sensor cover for my LG refrigerator, but had to carve a new foam insulator part from Styrofoam, using the cover and salvaged pieces of the old insulator as patterns, and test fitting it over the sensor tips on the bottom of the ice cube tray. This took 90% of the repair time. I am very disappointed with LG for not keeping the insulator in stock since it is the essential part.
