Used small screw driver to pry the top of the switch away from left inside wall of freezer side of side-by-side refrig./freezer; then used pliers to remove the switch; then removed the 3 prong socket and plugged it to new switch and installed it into the inside wall of the freezer.

Ice dispnser worked intermitently. My diagnosis led me to the freezer door light switch. Switch operated the light but stopped the ice dispenser. After replacing the switch the dispenser operates every time now. problem solved.

I ordered the whole assembly as a unit. It arrived the next day after I ordered it. It came already assembled. All I had to do was pop it in. No tools were needed. It seems to be working fine. I should have done this months ago.

I took the advice of the repairman that I had called and just bought the entire assembled ice bucket and auger. It was just a matter of taking out the bucket and put in the new one. Just replacing the plastic auger would have been cheaper, however it would have taken a lot of work.
