I just bought a used refrigerator from a friend. It is the Maytag MFI2568AES French Door with Bottom Drawer Freezer. When opening the left door, the light would not turn on, but would turn on when opening the right door. Also, the ice maker and water dispenser was not working. After wracking our brains over what the problem could be, we checked the left door light switch.

The ice maker and water dispenser will not work when a door is open, and the light wasn't turning on, so we pried the switch out and found one of the metal contacts was bent. After using some needle-nose pliers, we straightened the contact and re-inserted the switch. Voila! It worked!

So I am just posting this in case anyone else has run across this problem.
