Do you have a model number so I can better assist you? It would be located on a sticker near the ceiling of the refrigerator section.

I am away from home and I am trying to help my wife with this problem. She cannot get someone to come out to help her until next friday.

OK perfect. So this model doesn't have the control panel built into the door so what you'll want to do is just remove the top hinge cover of the freezer and just unplug the wire harness at the top of the door. Then you won't be able to use your dispenser but it'll stop the ice dispenser form running constantly until you can get someone out.
