Kenmore refridgerator icemaker wont stop dispensing ice

I have a Kenmore refrigerator from 2001 model: 106.50522101.
As soon as the freezer door closes, the ice dispenser starts dispensing ice.

We disconnected the light switch in the freezer liner to kill the power to the freezer light and in door ice and water dispenser as a workaround. I recently purchased a new light switch to install, but as soon as I connect the black wire and depress the light switch (to simulate the door closing) the ice dispenser attempts to dispense again.

Any advice here? The ice maker is working like a champ and we'd love to be able to get crushed ice out of it again.
