Question about Maytag MSD2732GR Side by Side Refrigerator
For several months now the ice/water dispenser on this refrigerator has been sticking such that you have to either manipulate the button that activates the device to release it or you have to open the refrigerator door to stop the water/ice from dispensing. Is there a fix or this a replacement problem?
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.
