Can you please advise how I can repair my refrigerator's water dispenser. The refrigerator has started to dispense water completely by itself, without being activated. When it has happened, the light goes on and it makes the same sounds as if it's been activated in the normal way - by pushing a cup against the activation paddle. It seems that there is something wrong with the electronics that are normally activated by the paddle. Thanks for any help you can offer.
You will want to access the dispenser switch and check to make sure that it checks for no continuity when the button is not pushed in and for continuity when the button is pushed in. If it checks ok then the power board would be the most likely cause for failure. The power board part number is  but has been discontinued by the manufacturer with no suitable replacement.
