Hello Jeff. My problem started happening again. I know that my water filter needs changing right about now, is it possible that something in the flow from the filter can cause the switch to stay on? I can't believe i have a bad switch again. I still have good ice flow, but never changed the dispenser, maybe i will do that also?

Flowing full or just dribbling?
Flowing full and I would think something has happened to the micro-switch. If dribbling the tired filter may cause low water pressure and the fill valve cannot 100% close/shut off.

lower flow coming out during dispensing as well as for the few seconds of flow after removing a glass. I think i will try the filter first.
