In door ice and water dispensing

In the door ice and water dispenser...
When you press the switch to activate the ice or the water it dispenses fine but when you remove your cup to deactivate it continues to pour out water or ice (most of the time, but not always). We often have to open the freezer door to get it to stop.

Sounds like the paddle is hanging up or the micro switch that the paddle actuates is sticking if you can see the micro switch spray some wd 40 on it open the door and work the paddle a few times

Ice dispenser stuck on


Either the paddle for the ice/water dispenser is stuck or you have a bad microswitch behind the dispenser.
To stop the ice/water from dispensing open the freezer door and press or hold the child lock button down. Once the unit is in child lock mode you can shut the door without energizing the dispenser.
Another option is to remove the upper freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the wire connector up there. This will remove voltage from the dispenser as well. Then either replace the paddle or switch. Sometimes the paddles/switches will get stuck because of splash up from ice dropping in sugary drinks.

The outside door water does not work


Can I assume the ice and water are activated by two different switches? The ice switch activates the motor that dispenses ice. The water switch activates a solenoid that opens to dispense water. If you can, find the solenoid and make sure it's not stuck closed (tapping it with a screwdriver handles usually help persuade it a bit). I would tap the solenoid while pushing the water button. Listen for the solenoid to activate. If you can't activate the solenoid, find the switch and depress it with a small screwdriver. Usually, these switches are just simple little microswitches that need a little cleaning and coaxing

No water or ice through the door, but still makes ice. All other controls work.


Check the switch on the door that is pressed when you want ice or water. Is it safe to assume ice and water are dispensed using the same 'button' for both? I have seen on some models that the switch is activated whenever you push a glass/cup against a 'soft' pliable area. If it were my problem, being the do-it-yourselfer that I am, I would find the wiring harness connection point for at portion of the door, remove the connector and touch a jumper to the connector wires to see if the switch is bad. A switch works by closing (shorting) two contacts together and the typical door switch, in this case, is a momentary closure switch.

Ice maker not dispensing ice


If the dispensor light switches to cubed or crushed , the panel is good . Remove the ice bin , and hold the light switch in . Press the arm for CRUSHED ice , and if you hear a buzzing or hum , then the auger motor is frozen . Use a hair dryer directly on the " forks " for a while , ocasionally holding switch and activating arm , until the forks move . Lower the freezer temp slightly and reinstall the ice bin .

No water


MORE LIKELY TO BE BLOCKED OR A KINKED PIPE AT BASE OF DOOR, WHEN YOU ACTIVATE THE VALVE THE WATER FLOWS STRAIGHTOUT OF THE DISPENSOR SO THE MUST BE A PROBLEM IN THE DOOR AREA. REGARDS DVISOR
