Unplugged refrigerator. Removed 3 screws holding unit in place. Carefully disconnected the wire from the control face plate. removed existing ice dispense door and spring, disconnected lead from solenoid which controls ice dispenser door opening and closing. Removed 2 screws holding solenoid in place. Removed old solenoid and replaced with new one. Installed new ice dispenser door and spring. Replaced old actuator pad with new one and reassembled.
Repair was easy but unfortunately did not fix the problem. Subsequent tests indicate no power getting to the solenoid so I think I have a circuit board problem --
