I had the same issue with mine but it is fairly easy to fix, all you need is patience.
1. Press the "Lock" button to ensure nothing is dispensed while performing the fix (worth testing).
2. Remove the grey rubber push from the dispenser carefully (give this part a wash in warm soapy water and leave to dry).
I used a small flat bladed screwdriver but BE CAREFUL not to damage it on removal.
3. Spray a small amount of WD40 (or similar oil) using the straw attachment into the mechanism, especially the spring.
4. Work the mechanism a few times (observe point #1) to ensure it is not sticking.
5. Get a chair.
6. Re-fit the rubber surround following these tips:
a) Starting at the top on the right hand side start gently pushing the rubber lip into the chrome surround.
b) Ensure as you work around the rubber that the legs locate into the holes (use the small screwdriver to guide them in).
c) Work around clockwise using the screwdriver to ease the rubber into the chrome surround.
d) Once in place you can work around again with the handle of the screwdriver putting slightly more pressure on the edge of the rubber (where it meets the metal surround, this will ensure that it locks back under the lip.
***Be patient when refitting the rubber part, it takes a good 15-20 minutes but not doing it right will result in more problems***
Hope this helps!

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.
