Wire diagram Hello, I had to remove the front cover housing of my refrigerator to access the water dispenser switch as some of the guide pins had broken off. I had disconnected the wire assembly (part #2180240) from the switch assemble (part #2180236 on the front cover I marked each wire as to where they are suppose to connected to. Unfortunately I used a magic marker and with all the handling of the wires it rubbed off. Is there a wiring diagram indicating which color of wire goes to which connection? Thank You, John Baesemann jbaesemann@prescottastronomyclub.org

I have an Admiral side by side fridge freezer model number GC2027HXKW and the water dispenser is not working. The ice is still being made but I cannot get any water to come out


Hello Rosemary:

Are you good with a multi-meter and tools?

You either have a bad contact switch or the mounting pins holding the switch are broken. This switch is behind the dispenser cover. On the bottom of the cover there are two slots for a flat head screw driver to pop the cover off. There are several plastic tabs on the cover sides and top that you must be careful not to break. If you have a plastic round piece where the water dispenses you will have to remove this. Squeeze at the top and the piece. There are tabs that will release. After you have removed the cover there is a touch pad control board - inspect for burn marks. You will need a small screw driver to pry the electrical connector free. Set the cover assembly aside. You will see a green control board. Ground yourself by touching something metal. Static will knock out a control board.
There are several screws holding the board. Remove the board. Know you can see these small contact switches. One on the left side for the ice dispenser and one on the left for the water dispenser. Inspect the housing upon which they are mounted on for broken pins. The contact switch easily slides off these pins.
So, either the control board, the contact switch or it's housing is broken.

Or, you have a bad water solenoid valve. This is located in the back lower left hand corner of your refrigerator. You need to un plug your refrigerator. Pull it out far enough were you can remove the bottom cover. There are 2 solenoid valves. The solenoid valve with the water line running up the back of your refrigerator is the ice maker solenoid, the other is your water dispenser valve. You need to take the wire connectors off the valve. Using a multi-meter check for continunity.
I am sorry I am not their to repair your unit,
Peter

Side by Side water dispenser would not stop


You will need to replace the switch. Here is the part to order.
To replace the switch:

Here are the basic instructions: " 1. Unplug the refrigerator power cord. 2. Remove the overflow grille from the housing. 3. Unsnap front cover at the bottom of the housing. (You'll need to insert the tip of a flat blade tool into the slots molded into the bottom edge of the facade and twist or pry out,you may want to use some type of pad to eliminate damage to the door panel). 4. Disconnect the front cover switch harness connector and set the cover aside. 5. Disconnect the power wire harness connector (BL/BK and W wires) 6. Disconnect the flapper door heater wire harness connector (if one is present). 7. Release the dispenser microswitch retainers and slide the switches off of their locator pins. Carefully handle the switches so they do not come apart."

Ice door does not close on lg model # LRSC26915TT. Tried to remove panel to see behind, but after snapping it out the ice chute is preventing removal. Help with both


Hello,

The solution is for you to take out the door and try to fix it back in, that way it will solve both problem for you.

You will need to unplug the fridge or unplug the wires going to the dispenser from behind the grill at the bottom of the fridge. Pop off the front cover over the switches and pop off the soft button cover that you mash to activate the dispenser. You will see the screws that hold the dispenser assembly to the housing. remove them and the unit will slide toward you.

That way you will be able to remove the panel and assess it.

Hope this helped.
Goodluck

How do I replace the water dispenser tube for a Kenmore Coldspot model # 106.53769201. The end of the line disintegrated at the spot where you put your glass under the dispenser.


Hello,

Ice makers and water dispensers are convenient to have on your refrigerator, but can also cause a lot of aggravation if they are not functioning properly.

If your water valves are not defective and you are still experiencing water or ice delays, you may have a clog in your refrigerator hose line.
Instructions and material needed to fix it up.

  • Towel,Flathead screwdriver,New water hose
  1. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator and place a towel under the line to soak up any residual water that leaks from the hose when you remove it. Unplug the refrigerator.
  2. Disconnect the hose from the back of the refrigerator by pushing in on the collar while pulling the water tube out. If you have a model with an ice and water dispenser, you will need to disassemble the dispenser on the front of the freezer in order to completely remove the water hose.
  3. Remove the water drip tray from beneath the ice/water dispenser and locate the screws at the bottom of the cover (if any). Remove screws and pop off the panel that houses the dispenser. If the unit does not have screws, you will need to pry the cover off with a flat-nosed screwdriver.
  4. Once the cover is removed, you should be able to see the screws that hold the dispenser unit in place. Remove these screws and reposition the unit so you can free the water hose, by pulling it through the dispenser.
  5. Thread the new water line through the freezer door and reassemble dispenser unit. Push the new water hose into the fitting on the back panel, making sure it is properly seated. Turn on water supply and check for any leaks before moving the refrigerator unit back against the wall.
Good Luck and thanks for using fixya.

Buttons don't work on my ice and water dispenser, can't switch between crush/cube/water. Light also doesn't work. Jenn Air Model JSD2789GES


Most refrigerators have a control board behind those buttons. I'm betting your board is bad, or possibly not getting power. Remove the dispenser cover and see if the board is still clipped in the housing, and that it is plugged in.

housing first. Pull the bottom out and lift and the front cover from the housing. (Fig. 27)

3. Disconnect the wiring harness connectors from the terminals
on the switches and light fixture in the control bracket.
Removing the Dispenser Assembly
1. Do the previous three procedures.
2. Remove the eight (8) hex-head screws securing
the dispenser housing to the freezer door. (Fig. 29)
3. Carefully pull the housing from the door.

Water dispenser keeps running


Allen, one of two things here. The dispenser target switch has gone bad or the actuator arm is not releasing the switch. Remove the front cover by using a small screw driver to unlock the tabs at the bottom. Slide the panel down and out. Disconnect the wire harness. Remove the 4 phillip screws in the door dispenser housing. Slide the housing out and disconnect the target switch and light connectors. Now you can spread out the locking tabs and examine the switch. If this all checks good, then the board is the problem...Catriver...post back.
