I assume this worked before? Are you sure the compressor shuts off or could it be another motor in the dispenser/grinder area? You'll need to find out if a fuse, circuit breaker or thermal cut-out is occurring. Did you check water flow into the 'fridge? .... Clogged line, clogged filter, valve problem, etc. Good luck.

Hi Urban Woman,

Unfortunately, your dispenser interface board has gone to appliance parts heaven and needs to be replaced. Fortunately it's relatively cheap. If I recall correctly, all you have to do to access the dispenser board is use a small flat screwdriver. There are 2 locking "tabs"/slots on either side and underneath the board (you will barely be able to see it, they're just that small). 6fb5654.jpg

Of course you already know that you need to unplug the fridge before doing any repairs so I can skip that part.

Insert your screwdriver into those slots and pry the bottom of the board out. Then grasp it with your hands and remove it completely. There are three wire bundles on it, remove them and re-install them on the new board. Then simply snap the new board into place.

This should take maybe 15 minutes to do... super easy job.

SG

p.s. Here's a link to the service manual, but the removal of the dispenser board is not in it (everything else is, though, so it may come in handy later)

p.s.s. Since you're going to be unplugging the fridge for the repair, you ought to go to Home Depot and pick up one of these to plug it back into. Transient voltage spikes are most likely the cause of all your woes... including the main board that was replaced.

If the dispensor light switches to cubed or crushed , the panel is good . Remove the ice bin , and hold the light switch in . Press the arm for CRUSHED ice , and if you hear a buzzing or hum , then the auger motor is frozen . Use a hair dryer directly on the " forks " for a while , ocasionally holding switch and activating arm , until the forks move . Lower the freezer temp slightly and reinstall the ice bin .

Had the same problem. If there is ice in the bin make sure the ice bin is in all the way. there is a
drive gear in the back that has to be engaged. If the
bin is emty open the little door where you can see
if there is ice, on the left you will see the square
end of the ice maker unit. Slip your fingers under
the front face, palm of your hand facing up so you
can feel the bottom of the front of the unit. Over
to the left you will feel a button that you can not
see. Just push it in for a few seconds and the unit
should start. One other thing, make sure the limit
switch is pulled down, thats the plastic on the
wire which shuts the unit off if it is full. Good Luck.

Our Kenmore side by side refrigerator ice maker makes ice but when we press the ice dispenser lever there is no sound and no ice comes out.


If your refrigerator has an ice dispenser, you are probably used to getting ice right away when a lever or button is pressed. However, if you depress the ice maker button and nothing dispenses, there is an issue with your refrigerator. There are a few different reasons why an ice dispenser would suddenly not work. It is important to troubleshoot your refrigerator first to determine the problem. Some problems can be fixed at home, while others must be repaired by a professional

1 Remove the ice bin from the freezer and press the button on the front of the refrigerator for cubed ice.
2 Open the freezer door and hold down the switch on the door, which "tricks" the freezer into thinking the door is closed, and push the lever or button to dispense ice. The motor behind the ice bin should turn. If it does not, this means the motor is frozen.

3 Remove the motor, following the directions in your refrigerator's manual. Heat and dry out the motor with a hairdryer until the motor turns again, then reinstall the motor according to the manufacturer's directions.

Ice Bin or Chute
1 Remove the ice bin to see if it is overloaded. Ice bins that are too full can cause new ice being produced to back up and cause blockage. If this is the case, dump out the ice and rinse out the ice bin with hot water until any blockage is melted.

2 Examine the separator that divides the ice storage bin from the ice dispenser for holes. If the separator has a hole or is cracked, it must be replaced.

3 Watch the flap on the ice dispenser as you hold down the door switch and simultaneously press the button to dispense ice. If the flap does not close all the way, check for ice blockage and gently remove it. If there is no blockage, the flap will need to be replaced.

Hope this tips would help.

Have a nice day!

Ice and water dispensing problem; compressor shuts off when paddle pressed but dispensing is sporadic


could be the big motor that turns the ice in the bin when dispensing the ice. pull out the ice bin, check the big metal thing that turns when you press ice at the front dispenser. or you have a big chunk of ice that the motor can not turn.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Ice maker water dispenser is stuck in the on position


The problem is fixed. I think the drinking cup jarred the push bar activator, causing it to be stuck in the on position. After pushing this activator, it cleared the problem. Thanks for your follow up.

try removing the ice bucket, and on the back wall is a hole approx 1.5 inches square that the brass bar attached to the rear of ice container inserts into,(you may have to put hte container back in partilaly to look under and watch where it slides into) inside thatcut-out is a plunger that slides up and down activating the crushed/cubed option.you can sick you finger in the hole you should seee a plastic hoop that would catch the brasss bar.Try pushing and pulling hte hoop up and down if it does not move freely, youll need to replace the solenoid assy. if it does, then pull allthe way to the lowest positon and make sure when replacing the ice container that the bar falls with in the hoop itself

GE GSH22JFRE WW not dispensing ice


Deb, sounds like your dispenser control board has given up the ghost. The boards come in 2 models, 4 button and 5 button. The 4 button part # is WR55X10443 (~$87.00)... the 5 button part # is WR55X10437 (~$97.00). Not too difficult to replace. UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE!!! Remove the drip tray from the dispenser, and any screws hiding in there. Then, using a flat screwdriver and starting at the bottom of the fascia, pry the fascia away from the door and remove. Then remove the screws holding the control in place and disconnect any wiring. (Don't forget to pay close attention to WHERE the wires connect and HOW the wires are routed!) Then install the new board and rebuild. Approx. repair time for your first one is ~1 hour. Good luck!
