My Repair & Advice
I removed the spillover grille, unscrewed two Phillip's screws, pulled off the dispenser cover, unclipped the wiring harness in back of the cover and set the cover aside. This exposes the works behind the cover. It was easy to see that the switch which controls the ice dispenser was not being held firmly in place. The plastic pins which are attached to the control bracket and which holds the switch in place had broken off. I searched for a control bracket online, found what I needed at appliancepartspros.com and placed my order late on a Saturday afternoon. UPS delivered the new bracket Tuesday. It took just a few minutes to install the new control bracket and replace the dispenser cover. The price was a third of most sites I visited. I'm very satisfied.
