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!

In-door water would not shut off, causing small flood.

the entire assembly was removed using some small hex and torx wrenches. I am not a refrigeration expert and had no diagram but this was very intuitive to replace all the parts above. I figured I would replace all these other related parts while I was digging around in there.

One thing to watch out for is to label the wires going into the switches before you take the old one out. You do not want to wire them up wrong, so use a sharpie to label the colors before disassembly.

Also take the time to clean the parts in soap/bleach to clean all the years of filth that accumulate.

I replaced all the parts above and cleaned everything well in under 20 minutes. Saved a fortune thanks to partselect!

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.
