I will be testing per instructions from "Trying To Help" late this evening.

Can you give a "tutorial" on accessing the switch for inspection before I attempt to extricate it? I just need to know how the switch and/or cover panels fasten in place. I don't want to do more harm than good to her refrigerator. I already know how to access the water valve(s).

By the way, (now she tells me) Mom made this remark this morning...... "The "push button" has hung up before and I had to "mash" it a couple more times to stop the ice from coming out."

So, it is probably going to be that the water valve coil has failed due to excessive "hold in" time from the dispenser switch sticking when the little....uh, "child visitor", got a drink after everyone went to bed.

I will be replacing the dispenser switch for certain (based on her latest bit of information).
