Go to this site on You Tube to watch the "how to" replace the gasket retainer. The retainer I needed did not come with brackets or the cam you will need. You will need transfer them from the old retainer to the new one. Not hard, just be mindful of position of the items you remove to put them back in place the same way. A metal rod holds the brackets and spring in place with a screw on one end to prevent rod from sliding off retainer. The cam has a screw that holds it in place, use from old retainer. If the old cam is not broken use the one from the old retainer. It is not hard and you will save $$$ that you would pay an appliance repair company.

I called LG and followed the instructions given over the phone. The instructions couldn't have been simpler. Disconnect the appliance for several hours and then connect again. I disconnected the appliance overnight, cleaned out the freezer, and reconnected it. Problem solved. Did not need to call a repairman and did not use the clips.

From the front of the refrigerator you need to take two hands and put them on the side of the dispenser and pull out. There is nothing to grab so it may take a try or two. the dispenser will pop out and will have all the wires and electronics on the back. unscrew the old switch and replace with new switch. Pop dispenser back in. For the shelf rail you just take the shelf out and dippers the tab to slide the old broken shelf runner off and the reverse the procedure to install.
