This was not a through the door unit. The water dispenser is located inside the refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the two screws holding the cover over the dispenser parts. Could not remove the cover completely as there is a water supply line attached. Let the front of the cover down as far as you can get it. The micro switch is reachable. Move plastic retaining posts holding the switch in place, to the side to release the switch. This can be done with your fingers. Pop the switch out. Use the blade of the screw driver to gently pry the electrical connection plug away from the switch. Attach the new switch to the plug and put everything back in the reverse order of disassembly. Done, easy, even I could do it.

Just remove old one which was really easy since it was practically falling off and replace with new one. It is a bit tricky because you are afraid of breaking the new one. Watch the video and you will be more confident. I was REALLY impressed with the shipping. I ordered on Monday afternoon and when I returned home Tuesday afternoon it was waiting for me on my porch , and this was the week between Christmas and New Year when everyone was fussing about not receiving packages. NOT ME!
