The water dispenser would not shut off quickly

Pull out fridge and unplug

Unscrew face plate (star bit) 2 screws

Unscrew dispenser from chute - 3 screws and one is hddend next to actuator.
Carefully disconnect another wire strap to remove unit.
Remove actuator pad
Remove limit switch (i small philips screw)
Replace switch & pad
Re-assemble

Neither the actuator pad nor the limit switch appeared broken or worn but it appears to have solved the problem.

Not a terribly complicaed repair but you need to take care not to damage anything as you take apart. More work than just changing a filter or bulb.

Water dispenser fails to shut off

Upon careful inspection, I found that the dispenser also would occasionally fail to shut off when dispensing whole or crushed ice, which led me to think that the problem was in the dispenser actuator rather than in the water solenoid or fountain switch control board. To inspect the actuator mechanism, I shut off power to the refrigerator, removed the escutcheon mounting screws, the escutcheon, the cable from the fountain switch control board, and finally the fountain bracket assembly. There was a small amount of hard water scale on the back of the actuator pad, but no groove in the plastic part of the pad that actuates the switch. I replaced the pad and switch (1 screw) and reassembled the dispenser. The dispenser no longer sticks and shuts off normally.

No ice or water dispencing

I first read about others with the same problem on your web sight and figured if they could do it so could I. Anyway the directions are a little hard to read but it was very informative and straight forward. I took the advice of one of the do it your-selfers when it came down to removing the spring. Be careful not to loose it. Everything was there that I needed and went on without a hitch. Now it was time to see if my repairs were done correctly. Pow! Everything worked. This is a great web-sight to buy parts if you are a do it your selfer. Easy to follow instructions.

Ice and water despenser solonoid stuck in on position during the night and flooded my kitchen and basement

Un plugged refrigerator, removed 2 screws holding the front control cover in place. Removed 3 screws that held the despenser assey in place and removed the power cable. Inspected the burnt and melted assey and got on line with parts select and chose the parts I needed and ordered them. They had it all and shipped it that day. I was back in business in about 3 days. Thanks again. You have saved me on this appliance several times.
