How do you lock the ice dis spencer

Hello Simon;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number so I do not know what unit you have.

No matter; Either you do not have a lock on your dispensers or you have a child lock out on the dispenser key pad. This lock will lock out both the water and ice dispense.

No water and ice dispensing

most dispensers have a hidden lock button that may be set the lock button is a child safety feature,despite that could be the door switch since they wont dispense with the door open or perhaps could be the switch on the dispenser cradle

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.

Ice dispenser/water dispenser in side by side fridge not working

Your dispenser is child locked. Hold the child lock button for 4 seconds and the key should disappear, if you do not know which key to press I will need the model number from the tag located on inside of the fresh food section top right corner.
