Cut power to the unit, carefully unseat that small ribbon connector on the control panel that goes to the control board and re-insert the ribbon connector, paying attention to the UP marks on the end of that ribbon.

    Then you may have to replace that control board. Did you get it wet or perhaps damage it in the process of replacing that paddle?

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,

I have a Frigidaire model number PLHS67EESB9 side by side refrigerator. About 4 months, I has the water dispenser paddle replaced by a trained technician. Recently, the when the freezer door was opened...


Start by looking at the circuit boards for any sign of cracks or a trace coming off the board. Also, check all the ribbon wires for any signs of a break, corrosion, and so on. As soon as my database comes back online I will look to see if I have a service manual for that unit and any test procedures that you may do. Also, look at the door switch for any shorts or wire breakage. Post back any results to me.
Regards,
Richard

LG wont dispence ice


hi there,

sounds like you have ice in the ice bucket. it's most likely that the ice paddle is jammed or broken. check around the ice door and paddle for anything visibly broken as well. you may have to replace the ice paddle.

GE Profile Refrigerator Ice/Water dispenser not working


Had the same problem. Pressed button heard a click, saw zeroes flash, then nothing. After some online search I found and solved the problem. Corrosion and condensation on the connector plug attached to the wire at the bottom of the freezer door. Remove plastic grill, pull out wire from under box. You'll find a plastic connector and possibly wet or corroded wiring. CUT POWER TO FRIDGE OFF FIRST. I cut away the white plastic connector then stripped and tied the wires together with wire caps. Taped them up too. Note which wire goes to which first. Mine was blue to blue, black to black, and red to white. Problem solved.

Psc23sgrd ss ice/water dispenser not working


It is possible. When you put hit your glass against the paddle to you hear the switch click? And can you still select between water, cubed, and crushed ice? Also does the light by your glass come on when you but your glass against the paddle?

When you put your glass on the paddle it pushes in a microswitch. That microswitch will power the light if it is working and also sends power to the board you are talking about to dispense ice or water depending on what you have selected.

Water Actuator is broken.


I had the same problem with my water dispenser and since they were willing to sell me a part but provided no directions and I couldn't locate any I decided to make my own for those who might need them. Here is a link to a PDF I made, hope it helps.

Before starting this job I would also like to warn all to please be save and UNPLUG the fridge. The whole job took me less then 30 minutes and I doubt anything will go bad in that amount of time.

Filtered water quit working on my Frididaire side by side


Angelbaby, there is a couple things for you to check. Number one is to remove and reinsert the filter. I had one once where it was not exactly seated correctly and caused this problem. If that's not the case check to see that the water reservoir is not frozen. This will be behind the drawers on the refrigerator side. You can take a hair dryer and go lightly over it to melt the ice if it is in fact frozen. Finally in the back by the triple water valve is a diode on the valve harness. If this diode failed you will not get water or ice. Let's hope this is not the case and it's one of the first two senerios, Catriver...post back
