I am not sure where to find the micro-switch. Is it literally the switch/button you would push to dispense ice? If so, the one suggested looks different than mine, or I am not seeing this switch. Thanks
Answer Hello Sam. Yes, according to your model number, these are the micro-switches for your dispenser. You will need to check your dispenser switches and see if they are making contact. It is ok if they are different, we just need to make sure they are not calling for dispensing. Hope this helps.

What is the correct replacement ice maker for this refrigerator?
Answer Ed, if you are needing a complete add on kit you'll need to use part number IM116000. If you added the IM15 icemaker originally to your model the replacement icemaker is part number 5303918277. Thanks.
The ice maker has stopped making ice. How do I determine what part to replace? I'm ready to order a replacement ice maker but want to be sure that is the problem and not some other valve or control.
Answer Hello Brett. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
We bought our home, with the fridge, two years ago. Ice maker has been termperamental, not working longer than it has worked. After several months of NOT working, ice maker suddenly resumed working once after the electrical power had been off for about 24 hrs. due to a storm. It worked, IIRC, for a month or two. There had also been an "extra" filter on the water line (in addition to the filter inside the fridge); we removed the external one and that helped with water flow. We had local appliance service come out, as I was suspecting low water pressure to be the problem, although shop thought unlikely. Repair guy emptied freezer, check the lines in back, then decided it WAS pressure problem; he made a larger hole on main water line, put on a new saddle valve, and VOILA; it worked. For a while. It has not worked for several months so I decided to have another go at it....emptied freezer, let it warm up for a couple of hours. Nothing. Removed filter cartridge from filter in the fridge. Water flow in door is decent. Just wrestled out the ice maker.....it has a little bit of ice in bottom of the rear-most cube molds. Have it thawing out again; on verge of buying new ice maker, but it seems to work when it is in the mood....Help!
Answer Ellie, Recheck and flush the water supply line for a minute or two. Replace the water inlet valve 242252702 and check the ice maker wire harness connection at the back wall of the freezer. Having operated so long on low water pressure, there may be debris in the valve and weak or faulty solenoids, still causing little or no water to the ice maker.
