Ice & Water dispenser not working

  • Customer: Anthony from BUCKEYE, AZ
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
Ice & Water dispenser did not dispense. When pushing on the dispenser lever, the entire unit briefly lost power and reset as though the appliance was unplugged. I heard a click from the back of the unit where the main board was located.
Fridge made ice but didn't operate. I determined the micro-switch and solenoid were working properly. So the only thing that could be wrong was the board.
Removed main board panel with screw/nut driver. Unplugged board connections. Un-snapped main board from housing assembly. Installation is the reverse.
Very easy. Only needed was a screw/nut driver. Electrical connections are easy since the harnesses can only fit to their own connection. No way to make a mistake.
Took no more than 10 minutes.

Problem solved!

Freezer stuck in Defrost cycle. Ice and water dispenser broken - turns off compressor when dispenser is used.

Partselect.com has a great video on how to replace the main control board. Very easy to do this repair.

It took me less that 5 minutes to complete.

Once the part was replaced, my defroster in the freezer is working perfect. The ice and water dispenser is working, too.

I saved myself $$$ going through Partselect.com rather than calling a repairman or replacing the fridge.

Video is a great but still need to read the instuctions because there are parts you may need on the old ice maker. Saved myself a bit of money by not having to call a repairman. The process was very simple. I am glad I did it myself. Thank you Parts Select!

First, the part arrived very quickly- 2days (FedEx). Removed the back panel, began pulling multi-prong plugs from the old board. To remove the plug that came out laterally (power wires?), I used a thin screwdriver to press the retaining clips on the side of each pin (4 white) holding the circuit board in place and pulled it out for clearance, then wiggled the multi plug free from the board. [I didn't put a lot of pressure on the board while pulling these plugs- 'cause if the new board didn't work, I'd still have the old one.]

Installation was pretty much the reverse of all the steps above. Thankfully, this unit did not have a bottom freezer as two steps in the instructions would have made it riskier.
Once plugged in, I listened for the fan and compressor to kick-in, didn't hear them (was concerned at first), but the dispenser worked ("yea!")- both crushed and cubed ice. The water worked also and it's been running fine for a couple of weeks now. After checking the temp settings they seemed more stable, the fan and compressor kicked in after a few minutes, and the ice-maker is working better than before (fills more quickly). Also, it seems to run less which makes me think I've been wasting electricity while the old control board was bad. Who knows what temps it was trying to reach on each side?
Not that hard to repair, but read the instructions 'very' closely so you don't do something (like cut a wire) that doesn't apply to your fridge. Tim

The video on the site was very helpful. The repair was really easy. It was exactly the way the video showed how to do it. I would definitely use this site again to find parts, figure out the "how-to", and use for skematics of appliances. Thanks.

Top of freezer side to warm, bottom of refrigerator to cold

I unplugged the refrigerator. I removed cover plate with nut driver. I removed all wire harness plugs from old board and removed old board using needle nose pliers to squeeze existing holding clips. Old board came right out. I then snapped new board into place and replaced all the plugs. I replaced cover with nut driver and plugged in the refrigerator. Its been two weeks and all seems to be working fine.

Freezer side was making ice, but then two days later, the ice melted and ran down the back of the freezer. The food in the freezer did not melt. But----drinks and etc. that was stored in the door shelves would freeze.

The parts were here the next day. After removing the old ice maker it was a simple installation using the adapter cord furnished. It took about 15 minutes. You have to work with the cord some to get it to fit behind the ice maker, but it does fit. The ice maker started up immediately & works great.

Used the nutdriver to loosen two screws, life out ice maker, disconnect electric plug and put aside. Placed the new icemaker on the loosened screws, plugged in electric connector and tightened screws. Used small level to verify that unit was level.Waited about two hours for first cubes to be released into tray - has been working fine since!

After viewing Steve's How To video, I decided to order the part and do the job myself rather than call a repairman. I had the same issue a few years prior and the repairman changed the main control board, which fixed the problem. Turns out the job was rather easy, went fairly smoothly and I saved myself money that I would've spent on a service call. I would definitely use PartSelect.com again.
