This limit switch is a little over an inch long. It is an assembly of plastic and metal. The switch pictured here is black, though this type of switch is also available in white.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Be sure to unplug the fridge as there is live power on the circuit board you'll be handling/removing. Trust me on this.Slide out the ice tray, remove the screws holding on the outer plastic frame (taking the thin/flat wiring off carefully), remove the next set of screws, then slide off the mechanism. The water spout is flexible and you might need to bend it a little. Good time to clean it off as well.Changing the actuator switch and plastic pad is mostly self explanatory (look at old one, remove, and reverse steps to put new one). Takes about 30-seconds for this part.

Removed the face plate by removing the two screws under the fountain catch tray on the front of the fridge, and then sliding the cover up and off. Removed 3 screws to remove the dispenser and the limit switch was easily accessible on the back side. Also changed the actuator pad because the old one looked cosmetically bad.
it was a cake walk,removed a few screws unpluged assembly installed new switch didnt get shocked, nothing started on fire, ice came out like it should afterwards
Unplug fridge. Pull out drip tray at the bottom of the dispenser, remove 2 screws under it. Remove 2 screws holding dispenser to fridge. Disconnect wiring harness. Replace switch and Actuator pad. Re assemble in reverse order and plug the fridge back in. Have a cold glass of water, with ice, and no overflow on the floor. Saved quite a bit of $ to boot!
took off the faceplate on the door and replaced the limit switch. It was really easy to get to. Simple JobParts Select was really easy to deal with the parts came really really fast. Had my machine fixed in no time. Thanks Parts select.
