SOURCE: Ice/water dispenser sticks

Something kinda frozen treat probably melted and worked it's way into you dispenser area... seen it before. That's where the "sticky" is coming from. UNPLUG THE FRIDGE! MAKE A NOTE OF HOW EVERYTHING COMES APART! Remove the drip tray (if any)and remove any screws you may find there. Now get a small flat blade screwdriver, and pry the fascia panel off the door from the BOTTOM FIRST (you may see notches under there for a screwdriver to fit into) and work your way around it gently until it comes off. Now remove the screws that are facing you to pull the control panel out. When it's out, it'll see be hooked up to the wiring harness. Look for a small brown micro-switch with either 2 or 3 terminals on it. The switch is brown, about an inch long and 3/8" thick... this is the culprit. From here you can do a couple of things. 1.) replace the sticky switch. 2.) Take the wires off of it and remove the switch completely. Then, using a moistened towel, clean it real well and let it dry completely. Then reinstall it and rebuild the dispenser area. Sounds tough, but it should take no more than 45 minutes to do.

I have a Maytag model 2556 AE refridgerator. The ice maker works but the ice and water dispenser, the light and everything else on the front of the unit doesn't work. Is there a fuse that operates this or is there other problems? Thank you Bob

Hi gener72,

If the lever on you ice dispenser keeps getting stuck when dispensing ice or water, it is often caused by the button attached to the back of the boot has been removed. The easiest way to resolved this is to get the rubber boot in place. Please follow the following steps below on how to disassemble the dispenser.

1. Lock the dispenser using panel button to preclude undesired water/ice while working.
--> Note: the outer bezel (edge of panel) is secured by screws and should not be messed with.

2. The main panel has tabs on all four sides. You can use screwdrivers to pry the panel off ( you can use small to average size).

3. Pry the main panel working through the seam between the bezel and panel.

4. Work your way around starting from the lower left or upper left corner. Each side of the panel has 3 or 4 tabs. Please use a moderate force to pop the tabs loose.

5. Once the panel is loose, you'll need to disconnect the electrical connector at the upper left.

6. The plug comes off and reattaches easily, don't pull on the wires, use the plastic connector itself. Wiggle the panel free.

7. Now, you can get to the back of the boot retention bezel. Carefully push the bezel's securing tabs (x3) through the panel and reattach the rubber boot.

8. You can use needle nose pliers to carefully pull each rubber nib through their applicable hole on the bezel. Now leave the boot/bezel assembly to the side-it's the last step to reassembly. Note how the main panel tabs fit into their receiving slots/flanges.

9. Reattach the electrical connector, snaps right on, and maneuver center of panel into recessed area, around ice chute/water nozzle.

10. Slide the right and bottom sides on first-flanges, not slots for tabs-then align remainder of panel. Using moderate force, pop (punch) the remaining tabs back into their respective slots. The main panel will seat over the bezel. Now align and snap boot/bezel back into place.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Ed5shaxmt10 water dispensing won't shut off

One of two problems could be causing this problem...... First problem can be that the switch that you push on to dispense water or ice is sticking. The second problem that could be is the water solenoid that comes on and should close off fully is sticking open and allowing water to drip and not shut off completely. This is usually caused when the plunger in the solenoid starts to stick due to calcium deposits that has built up on it after time and if the water dispense system is not used that often. If you're not technically inclined, make sure that the repair person does not tell you anything that does not fit the descriptions that I have mentioned above. Hope this helps.

In the last 2-3 months I have purchased 2 of the Sunbeam Combo Water Dispensers and both of them overflow. After setting the bottle in the ''no spill receptacle'' after awhile they will overflow around the...

I would say that the dispenser is at fault. These water dispensers use gravity to release the water and won't allow overflow. The air pressure in the bottle comes up through the dispenser as water flows out. Your dispenser is not seating against the bottle correctly. Look inside at the gasket material that the top of the bottle rests on when it is in the inverted position. That's where the problem lies. The leak is happening right there where the bottle rests down in the reservoir. Look at that seal, it's damaged. Leaking...
