My refrigerator ice/water dispenser switch sticks on

My refrigerator ice/water dispenser...

My refrigerator ice/water dispenser switch sticks on frequently dispensing ice and water on the floor. How can I fix it. It is a Kenmore

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Kenmore Elite bottom freezer double door about 5 years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I would like to as I live very remote

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.
