Fridgidaire ice auger runs continuously

I just replaced the water dispense leaver in my Frigidaire FRS26HF7BW1 side by side. When I reassembled the dispenser and plugged in the switch cable on the front panel the ice dispenser came on and wouldn't shut off. I checked to see if this was a short in the ice dispenser switch. Even with the ice dispenser switch disconnected it the auger motor still runs all the time. Is there some special reset sequence for the boards or is one of the boards shorted? Please help, thanks.

    Same thing happened to me, but with model: PLHS69EESS1. I was fixing the water hose that had popped out of position, which was causing water to come out of every opening in the dispenser and was leaking all over the front door of the fridge onto the floor. When I reassembled the dispenser and plugged in the electronic strip, the ice maker started running and would not shut off. I have it unattached at the moment in order to keep it from running. Does anyone have a solution?

SOURCE: shorted control board dispenser

Look and see if the door for the ice chute is closing all the way. This model is bad about that door breaking. If it doesn't shut properly then warm air getting in will cause this condensation. Will also cause ice in bucket to melt and water can leak onto these parts. If it isn't obviously hanging open then shine a flash light from the inside down the chute and see if any light comes thru to the outside. Maytag has a chute door kit that you can find on Their part # is AP3140440. Let me know if this helps or we need to go further.

Hey friend, thank you for your inquiry!

From my understanding you were replacing the water dispenser on your Frigidaire refrigerator and the ribbon cable disconnected. I would suggest a generic search online for any additional information regarding the ribbon cable. I was unable to locate that information for you. Additionally, if you continue to have problems I would consult with a professional technician for proper attachment of the cable. Best of luck! -Matt

Frigidaire is not dispensing ice

Good Afternoon, thank you for your inquiry!

I see you are having trouble with your Frigidaire refrigerator dispenser not dispensing ice. Do you hear the auger motor running when calling for ice? If you do not, the dispenser may be jammed or the refrigerator has a faulty auger motor. I suggest try clearing any ice that is blocking the ice chute, removing any frozen ice or obstructions, verifying that the water valve or fill tube is not frozen. If any proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Best regards! - Z

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips
