Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water dispenser lever on door broken off.

Almost entire plastic arm that hangs down to dispense water has been broken off. There's only a tiny piece still connected to be able to dispense the water. Is there a replacement part? Also, both cube and crushed ice lights stay on, so it gets confused as to which we want. Not a problem for us, as we just press the correct button, but visitors don't know realize it. How can this be repaired?

Samsung rf4287hars ice dispenser doesn't work


The whole unit must be removed and unplugged. There is a screw in the bottom near the dispenser opening. Remove this screwn and then take a butter knife and start prying the unit outword.

The lever that operates the microswitch may be broken and was on mine. This part is cheap plastic and breaks when over entended in the least. If the actuation lever is broken, you will NOT feel any resistance when pressing the Ice despenser and will push on through to dispense water. Problem is there is NO fix for this except replacement and Samsung will not pay for it.

I fashioned a piece of bailing wire in place of the lever that will act the same and have a little spring incase someone presses to hard with their cup/glass. Yes... its bailing wire and works great. You must drill through the middle of the broken support, fashion the wire, coat with super glue and put in position pretty quick. 43e0da13-0ab4-425d-8cad-f17e16cccb58.jpg

If you find a small plastic piece on the floor and your ice maker stops dispensing.... I think I know your problem.

My Samsung Model: RF4287HARS refrigerator stopped DISPENSING ice. It makes it, but only water comes out of both push levers now. I get ZERO help from samsung customer service. There is nothing in


The problem is actually in the dispenser lever. The paddle that you press to dispense ice has a plastic lever/arm that extends behind it (you can't see it, it's up high in the assembly.) This plastic lever presses upwards when you push the paddle and presses into a switch. The switch actuates the ice. This little lever is also the ONLY thing that stops the paddle from continuing to press into the water paddle. So when the lever breaks, it creates your two symptoms - no ice and if you press further, you press the water switch and get water.

You need part# DA97-08519A. This is the lever assembly with the switches. You pry the control panel assembly (the whole digital display above the water/ice dispenser) out by inserting a slim pry bar (I used a pocket knife and didn't damage the finish) on one side and working my way around. The assembly is held in place by five plastic tabs (two on each side and one on the top.) When this is removed, the part# above will be obvious.

Whirlpool side by side with a broken water dispenser


you may have a sticking water lever or a bad water valve.
the lever can be changed from the front and you should know if it sticks.
the water valve can be replaced from the rear of your unit. it is the plastic part where the water line hooks up to the unit.

Broken water dispenser arm


I just fixed this today. 01/2/08

First, I got some super glue from Lowes especially designed for plastics.

I first glued some metal strips to the back or the broken off lever, so it will have extra support once glued back. I then applied glue to the broken surface of the lever arm and the support arms I glued earlier.

Super glue it awesome, just had to hold it in place for 1 minute, then let it cure for a few hours... working good as new.

I'm glad this worked for me, as I did not want to have to search for the part and then worry about taking the refrigerator apart.

After repair, I had to educate my wife on how to slam a cup into the arm HEHE.

Whirlpool refrigerator water dispenser not working


My older whirlpool side by side refrigerator has stopped dispensing water. The icemaker works fine, and I have adjusted the temperature a week ago so I don't believe the line is frozen. I do not hear any noise when the dispenser is pushed down, and feel that is where the problem is. The line is clear on the bottom of the fridge behind the kick plate, but water does not come out freely when I disconnect the couplings...
Any advice?

No water from dispenser


If the ice maker is still working then water of course isn't an issue. The water dispensor has a solenoid valve that opens to let water flow... do you hear a "click" from the back of the frige when the water lever is pushed? If not, the valve is likely bad. Another possibility is the switch behind the water lever itself is not being pressed hard enough or even broken, see if you can press the switch with your finger up inside behind the lever area (flashlight needed to see up there). If that lever isn't hitting the switch it won't work of course but it could be a bad switch too. Sometimes the little plastic pins that hold the switch in place get broken by slamming a glass into the lever over time. In other words the switch is fine but just hanging inside the door area never to be hit by the lever again. I would be good to check it by pulling the cover off that are and visually inspecting the whole back side of the lever area/switch are for broken parts. The link below may help you with parts and diagrams to see the unit better. http://www.partselect.com/KenmoreModels.aspx?ModelNum=106.54382300&searchTerm=
