Water fountain and ice dispenser would sometimes stick on

Removed the face plate by removing the two screws under the fountain catch tray on the front of the fridge, and then sliding the cover up and off. Removed 3 screws to remove the dispenser and the limit switch was easily accessible on the back side. Also changed the actuator pad because the old one looked cosmetically bad.

Broken actuator, water/ice switch getting stuck

First, I removed the water/ice fountain panel - remove the 4 screws and disconnect the panel buttons cable. Second, I removed the panel circuit board - remove the two screws and disconnect the two wire connectors. Third, I pulled the water/ice fountain compartment. Removed the broken rubber pad (actuator pad), and installed the new one -- no tools needed for this step. Finally, I put everything back together. TIP: If the water/ice switch gets stuck, even with the new actuator, find a spring that can fit the switch pin that comes with the actuator. I had that problem, and I simply added a small spring.)

Ice and water would not stop when glass was pulled away.

Unplug fridge. Pull out drip tray at the bottom of the dispenser, remove 2 screws under it. Remove 2 screws holding dispenser to fridge. Disconnect wiring harness. Replace switch and Actuator pad. Re assemble in reverse order and plug the fridge back in. Have a cold glass of water, with ice, and no overflow on the floor. Saved quite a bit of $ to boot!

Ice would not dispense & at times would not stop dispensing.

First, I took everything apart and replaced only the ice door. Everything worked fine for about an hour and the door started opening and closing on its own. I took it apart again and replaced the whole kit including the solenoid. Everything was fine for less than an hour and then the door started opening and closing again. I took it apart and made sure everything was tightened carefully. Now it works perfectly.
