Sorry, these become dirty after a period of time. Try spraying up with soap and water, clean as best you can, let dry. And then spray with a canned lubricant. Silicone type, (as opposed to WD-40 type) may work best. But OK to try either.

Water pouring out the water and ice dispenser on the door

I understand your problem, but to better help you, I would need to know if it started doing it on its own, or if it only does it after you call for water. If it does it when ever your water supply to the fridge is turned on and you are not trying to get water out of the fridge, replace the water valve and flush the waterline out for 1 pitcher of water because you probably have dirt in the line. If your water supply is OFF and you are always hearing a faint buzzing noise (from the water valve) then youve been getting your ice AFTER you you put soda or sticky juices in your glass, those sticky liquids SPLASH into that mechanism causing the micro switches to stick in the despenser housing (number 15 on diagram)

My Kenmore Elite Side By Side makes ice and the water dipenses properly but when I go to push my glass or cup in, to get ice, I hear a little motor sound then the sound fades away. It used to dispense ice...

Sounds like the screw shaft is stuck or iced over. Also check for jammed ice and missing gear teeth. Parts can be found online at small appliance repair sites. Instructions are usually online as well.

Kenmore 795-75202400 icemaker problem.

Good day,
Either the water valve opens to fill the ice maker cavity, and doesn't shut off soon enough, causing the ice maker to overflow.
Normal file time is approx. 7 seconds.
This is the most common problem.
As well, it is possible the micro switch in the ice-maker that tells the valve to open and close has malfunctioned.
This is all based on the fact that the freezer maintains a normal temperature.
To test the freezer for consistency, place a plastic glass in the freezer half full of water.
Check it in 8 hours. It should be frozen solid. Then place the glass in a plastic bowl, and lay the glass on it's side. Recheck in 24 hours. The ice should remain in the glass.
If not, there is a problem with the refrigeration system.

The switch on Maytag water and ice dispenser hangs

Need to enquire from the agents if that dispenser switch is available as a spare part. If so, switch off and strip carefully as logic shows you.

Mod: 10651262103, icemaker leaking, not making ice

We need to know if the ice maker overflowed or if there is a crack. Sometimes the water gets frozen in the fill tube and diverts the water everywhere other that ice maker. Rare but sometimes something causes the water control valve to stick open on rear of refrigerator. Your ice maker has a thermostat inside it and starts a cycle when the thermostat says the water has frozen. That starts a cycle of about six thing to happen.The defrost element below ice maker warms the bottom just enough to loosen the ice. Micro switches feel and sense the position and as it nears ending the final step the ice maker tells the water control valve to open for a few seconds. An adjustment in that control may stop over flow. But if cracked in a major section it will need to be replaced. Let me know if this helps you. Sea Breeze

Ice Maker Overflowing

i would recommend changing the water valves as they may be sticking or leaking now you can take the icemaker loose get a small baby bottle short the terminals to cycle water fill catch it with the bottle and see how much water it dumps should be about 4 ounces if the valve leaks will over fill the ice maker over a period of time say the valve is leaking a few drops at a time and the bail arm has the icemaker shut off because its touching ice in the bin but the water just keeps dripping down the fill tube till it runs over did you replace the whole icemaker or just the motor module

Ice maker problems

the heater on the ice maker has gone bad the easiest way to fix is to replace ice maker.the heater is on the bottom of the maker and heats tray up to harvest ice if it dont the ice will stick.But try taking maker out and cleaning it real good with a light spongee (Scrubee)
let it dry then spray some a light coat of pam (or similar) into ice bins and try that ahrd water will eat the coating off the bins
