Unfortunately your symptom is very odd and can only be caused by a bad door switch or a bad main control board not reading the switch properly. If the switches have been replaced and you didn't miswired them, then the only possibility is a faulty control board. The main control board is on the back of the refrigerator behind an access panel. The part number is ***** for your unit.

I guess I misunderstood you. If it works when you manually push the switch but not when you close the door, then either the switch is bad or the door isn't hitting the switch good enough. That wouldn't be a control board issue. You may have to add some shims to the bottom door hinge to raise the door up or put some sort of bumper on the door so it pushes the door switch further when the door is closed because the padding you were using isn't working.
Tape the door switch down and does the door work when the door is open and closed?
You just have a bad switch. Your switch came faulty and it's too sensative at what position it needs to be pushed in. You just need to return it and get a new one.
If you tape the switch and it won't work but you push it and it does, it's very simple---the switch is just bad. Just replace it and you'll be good to go again. Typically you rate now since I have given you my time but the question remains open so you can ask follow-up question later if needed.
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
