Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The repair depends on the model of the unit as they made several different designs for the dispenser system I will need the model number to help you out. The model number is ***** on a tag which is on the refrigerator wall on the left or right side on the inside of the fridge. Send me the model number on that tag and I can help you.

sorry I will have to opt out and let another expert help you with this as that model is actually an LG built unit and I do not have any information on that particular model. Some one should be along shortly.
