Actually this was a two part repair of which I purchased both parts. The micro switch Pt # PS296176 and also a double outlet water valve Pt # PS304374 from Parts Select as well.
The difficult part was accessing the area to get to the micro switch.
The trim had to be removed, then the cover.
Then one unplugs the board and removed the face plate which also contains the micro switch.
Once removed the two electrical terminals had to be disconnected, the micro switch installed and terminal reconnected.
Then reverse the removal procedure.
Then on to the double outlet replacement.
Suggest watching the installation video for the replacement although it was really a straight forward repair.
Two things to remember.
1. Unplug the fridge
2. Shut off the water to the dispenser
Overall it was not bad at all.
This was my first attempt at refrigerator repair and it went well.
Good luck on yours.
