Yes sounds like you need a new actuator pad. I had one do this this week and a new pad resolved it.

Maytag MSD2574VEM00 refrigerator - ice does not stop dispensing.

Check to see if there is a lock button that will stop the ice from comming out then check the pad that you push on to get the ice and see if its stuck in , there is a switch behind the pad and it will need to be replaced

My Samsung Model: RF4287HARS refrigerator stopped DISPENSING ice. It makes it, but only water comes out of both push levers now. I get ZERO help from samsung customer service. There is nothing in

The problem is actually in the dispenser lever. The paddle that you press to dispense ice has a plastic lever/arm that extends behind it (you can't see it, it's up high in the assembly.) This plastic lever presses upwards when you push the paddle and presses into a switch. The switch actuates the ice. This little lever is also the ONLY thing that stops the paddle from continuing to press into the water paddle. So when the lever breaks, it creates your two symptoms - no ice and if you press further, you press the water switch and get water.

You need part# DA97-08519A. This is the lever assembly with the switches. You pry the control panel assembly (the whole digital display above the water/ice dispenser) out by inserting a slim pry bar (I used a pocket knife and didn't damage the finish) on one side and working my way around. The assembly is held in place by five plastic tabs (two on each side and one on the top.) When this is removed, the part# above will be obvious.

Not making ice has water though

when my unit did this it was because the ice full lever had by mistake been placed in the ice tray full
position see if the lever will go down and also see if a ice cube is stuck in the tray where the ice comes out

No ice to the door

The motor is behind the ice bin and yes, it can get water on it and freeze up. I actually fixed one a month ago that I had to remove the motor and let it dry at room temp for a week in order to get it to work when reinstalled. Two or three days and it would freeze right back up in a little while. This usually happens when you've had a problem with the waterfall into the ice reservoir that a bit pours over the edge or when you've defrosted the freezer or left it open long enough to let ice thaw to some degree. You can pull the ice bin out and twist the motor by hand. If it is stuck it is froze but if it moves it is probably bad. You can close the switch with the door open and check with a volt-meter to see if there is voltage going to it if the motor turns freely. It will have a lot of tension but you can turn by hand.

Switch sticks for the ice and water. It wont shut off

Remove the water drain and the two screws behind it and lift up to remove the push button panel,unplug the push button panel. remove three screws holding the dispenser unit in place,sliding the water uotlet out of the way as you do. Next get to back of rubber cover and put a little lubricant(silicone lubricant would work,not too much, then test.Then test and reassemble.

Icemaker - flap won't open, cubes collect in chute

the actuating paddle that you are depressing to dispense ice actually pushes the door open at the top of the dispensor, soundsas if thered an issue withthe actuator arm

Ice maker does not make ice and the in-door water is not working properly - it keeps running.

the water in the door problem after you fill up your cup with water it keeps running all over the floor.. it sounds like its a stuck contact on a micro switch inside the door compartment. that lever you are pushing your glass onto is atached to a little switch and if the contacts stay closed (like when a glass is pushing on it) the machine thinks "hey he still wants water". next time it does that try pushing on the spot you put the glass onto a couple of time to see if it stops the water. if so it most likely is the switch. to confirm that is the case you will have to open the plastic moulding from the fridge door to gain access to the switch.( always unplug any electricall device before openning to ensure your hair doesnt end up standing striaght up like a punk rocker) you will know which switch is the one you want to check by depressing the water lever on the front. Ohm check the switch for continuity to see if it gives you proper readings or it is in fact a bunk switch. it also could be a mechanical problem as the lever once unpressed is not opening the switch back up once the glass is removed but that is not as likely unless you are ramming the glass into the water dispensor
hope it helps
