    I have a Whirlpool Estate series refrigerator with ice maker. The ice
    maker makes ice, but it no longer dispenses it. I can tell that the
    switch is not activated when the ice release lever is pressed. I also
    can't see how to get to the circuitry inside the freezer door, which is
    where I assume it is. Any help on either diagnosing the problem or
    getting the cover off the circuitry would be appreciated.

    Remove the icemaker and thaw it out. If ice is jammed in the
    wrong spot, it can keep it from dispensing.

    check for a schematic on the back of the machine. Some of these have
    temp sensors.
