How do I disable the door alarm BUTTON on a Kenmore fridge?

Our model has a button on the door above the water dispenser to turn the door ajar alarm off & On. My kids have a tendency to turn it off and then don't make sure the door is completely shut, or turn back on the alarm.

This means that on numerous occasions I have found that the fridge has been left open over night or most of the day.

I want to disable the ability to use the button to turn off the alarm, so it is always enabled. I'd rather deal with an annoying alarm than having to deal with a blown out motor or having to replace a fridge full of food.

That link is to someone wanting to disable the alarm itself. I want to disable the BUTTON on the front of the door that controls the ability to turn the alarm off and on.

I'm hoping it can be done via a button combination (i.e. hold light button while pressing alarm button twice, or something). However, if I need to open up the door to pull a wire off the switch I can do that too.

Unfortunately you can't disable the ability to change this feature, you can enable the feature and lock the controls but you wouldn't be able to make any permanent changes to the controls.
