I am posting this in case someone else has the same problem.

Getting water from the fridge door was intermittently leaving the valve open, with water going everywhere.

In order to get the Ice / Water dispenser off the door to service the issue, I used dinner knives and pried
the bottom off the door. I found it took a couple of knives to work from both ends for me.

Then gently pry the sides and the top out, being careful not to break any tabs.

Once out, I found that one of the water switch assembly mounting arms was broken from the housing.
The other side looked fine as shown in the photo.

I used JB Weld and put some under the broken fitting and built up some on the sides. That fixed the issue.
I tried instant glue and it didn't bond well.

You can see where I glued the parts together. The problem is going to be if later the whole assembly or
switch needs to be replaced, the glued part will have to be cut apart to service the new issue. For now,
this worked for me.
