Water/ice maker runs on it's own water is forcefully pouring out of despenser when switched to water. We switched it to "ice" and motor will kick on and shoot ice every so often. The tab is not being pushed in during these running cycles. Recently changed the filter and refered to trouble shooting in the manual. It said to drain the water out for 3 mintues ( aprox. 1.5 gallons ) this didn't work. Any suggestions....

The drain the water thing is to get the air out the lines and filter so a burst of air doesn't splash water all over you. Water shooting out sounds like the circuit board is bad since you are not pushing the tabs, etc. I doubt that BOTH switches under the tabs are stuck in the "on" positon but you can always double check that too.
