Water flow to ice maker quit & door switch wouldn't stop

Needed special "Torques" tool to remove front panel from refrigerator door not a problem, however, some folks may not have this type of tool. Replaced rubber actuator pad and DID NOT replace limit switch. Old pad was worn out & wouldn't reset. Replaced water outlet valve this fixed the water flow to the ice maker. Had to guess if this was the problem. I guessed right as the water flow to the door water point was working but the ice maker water flow was not. I also used a special tube cutter (I had one) to cut the water tubes to get a clean cut. Most of the time was spent on vacuuming the underside of the frig. Bottom line the ice maker works again!

Fountain (water & ice) switch sticks when actuated

1. Unplug refrigerator and remove fountain drip tray.
2. Remove the two #15 torx head screws that were covered by the drip tray.
3. Pull the bottom of the trim panel out and push up to remove panel and then unplug switch circuit board connector..
4.Remove the three screws (same size as the other two) and then remove the switch, ice door, etc assembly and unplug the connector.
5. Aside. At this time I extended the water hose which has been short since new. Used a couple of inches of 1/4 inch plastic tube. Heated it with boiling water and slipped it over the existing tube to extend it about 1/2 inch. Now the water flows in a uniform predictable stream.
6.Remove the tiny phillips screw holding the switch in place.
7.Remove and replace the old switch and actuator pad and screw. Check operation of switch. I lubricated the surface between the switch actuator bar and the rubber with a little plastilube(white) grease. Probably highly optional.
8.Replace and replug the assembley. Tuck the actuator pad around the edges if needed. Remember to turn the screws CCW until they fall into the old threads and then tighten them until snug.
9.Plug in and mount trim and connect refrigerator.

Our ice and water dispenser was "running on" and spewing onto the floor each time it was used.

We removed the old part, which actually looked quite functional. We put on the new part, thinking that the repair was not going to be effective, and that we were going to need other parts. But, the refrigerator is working perfectly now, and I have no more run-ons onto the floor. THank you very much.

My actuator pad was not working consistently and my ice was not dispensing. I had ice forming inside the freezer door where the ice drops down, as well as from the ice maker itself.

I called and described my problem to a local refrigerator repairman and he told me what the problem sounded like. After ordering what I thought to be the correct parts, I just followed the video provided by PartSelect, which made it quite simple. I have purchased parts from this company in the past and made repairs which have saved me a considerable amount. This is a terrific company for us single women!
