Ice Dispenser Problem - Runs for no reason

Recently the ice dispenser on my Amana side by side refrigerator started acting funny. The ice dispenser will continually run, even though we are not activating the dispenser from the door. I've had to remove the tray from inside to prevent ice from falling out of the fridge during the day and night. The motor for the dispenser still comes on at random times for no reason that I can tell. It is almost as if the switch has a short or is semi-stuck in the on position, thus causing the motor to engage. Also, if I open the freezer door, there is a switch at the top of the door frame and if I depress that switch, the motor is engaged. I don't see anything wrong with the switch, but that doesn't mean that's the case. Any advice here would be greatly appreciated.

I think your problem is in the dispenser lever switch or the lever itself. Don't worry about the upper door switch, it's the dispenser switch that's sending power to the auger motor. I would give you a part number but the posted model number is for a bottom freezer model. Catriver..

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.

Amana side by side ice dispenser leaking water

Take the ice maker out and look at the mold. If the coating is flaking off then that is where it is leaking. Will need to replace the ice maker.
