Ice would not dispense

Appliance: Model LG DOUBLE DOOR FRIDGE W/WATER AND ICE
My Repair & Advice
Replaced the micro-switch that turn on ice chute. I could hear the micro-switch 'click' and wasn't sure exactly what the problem was until I pulled out the water and ice dispenser unit.
The plastic facia can be removed by inserting a thin flexible spatula between the facia and the door. I used an auto trim tool (plastic). Be careful not to damage door or plastic. Start at the bottom and depress three plastic tabs while pulling on the unit.
Noticed a lot of corrosion at the switch and on screws. Believe crushed ice particles end up in this area so I installed a small plastic shield (plastic bag) over the new switch. The switch is held in place by one screw and a plastic rod. Undo screw and slide switch out. Dealing with AppliancePartsPros was a pleasure.
