repaced limit switch, and actuator pad fixed the problem. Limit switch was the reason for water and ice not shutting off. Seems that the spring inside switch was shot and would not retract to off position. While we were going to change this switch out, we repaced the scuffed up actuator pad also. Knowing the age and our hard water problems, we replced the double outlet water valve for preventive reasons that would arise down the road.
