Most likey it is the water valve stuck in the open position. Or the the control has constant voltage to the control. use a meter and check for consistent volts at the water valve coil without depressing the dispenser. If you do not have voltage then replace the water valve

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.

Water and ice maker not working line frozen everything frozen even when you turn it down is it the termostat or what


It sounds like your ICE Dispenser door is stuck partway open. Defrost the access door, ice bucket and crusher then check the Ice Dispenser door to be sure it fully closes, otherwise cold air will constantly drift out and freeze the whole mechanism.

My ice and water dispenser sticks. I have to open


The door flap may not be opening and closing completely thereby trapping the ice. There is a solenoid that operates the door that could have stopped working. Can you hear it?
The hinge on the door could be broken or the bracket it goes in could be broken. You'll have to look to see what's wrong.

Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.

as you explained that by opening the freezer door the problem stopped the problem is: that you have a pinched dispenser wire or, two in the area between the door and, the door opening
these wires are low voltage so they are not going to cause a fire
but, if they touch the cabinet due to a bare wire they will ground and, start running the dispenser.
the door cover needs to be removed and, the problem (usually at the door hinge must be found and, corrected i.e. wire taped, shielded etc.

PCG23N ice cube dispenser area problem


This is probably due to the door flap in the ice chute not closing tightly. There is a solenoid that operates the door that could have stopped working. Can you hear it? The hinge on the door could be broken or the bracket it goes in could be broken. You'll have to look to see what's wrong.
