    Same board. Had to take it off to replace the broken water lever. Whe I plug the tape connection back into the board the ice dispenser just comes on like the lever is depressed but it is closed.

Hi, Can i ask is this the same board taht came off the fridge to start with? If so why did you take it off? And if not what was the fault before? And who told you about the board?
Get back to me.....

    Hmmm! Different! The connector itself can it be fitted on just one way? If the water valve is being energised then it could be a fact of the lever is pressing against the contacts somehow? or there is a reverse polarity going on? Did you switch off the appliance when you plugged the board back in? as sometimes a surge in power can cause some of the resistors to break down.

Model #WSF26C2EXY02. Why is ice maker not making ice?

When the ice-tray is full it pushes 'UP' a lever that shuts the water supply off. When you move the lever down all goes back to normal.

if you go here this shows you all the parts that are with the dispenser,it sounds like the computer board is bad,maybe the button is stuck in,also there are some micro switches in there that could be bad but without being there it's hard to say what it is,but if as soon as the door switch is closed and the ice dispenser starts it sounds like the touchpad button is stuck or damaged on the dispenser control board part 241708306 and is 38c on the diagram.this part is expensive if you buy it from thr repair clinic and this isn't the part they will take it back for up to 1 year
like i say without being there i can't just give you a 100 percent guaranty that this is it,there's alot of parts there you might want to call in a tech to be sure of what it is or like i say if you order the part from the repair clinic and it's not the right part they will take it back,also let me ask you if you open the door so no power goes to the dispenser when you push the ice dispenser you should hear a clicking sound,you can try the water dispenser first because that works,if you hear a click when you push in the water dispenser lever but no click with the ice lever it could be the micro switch that's bad.i just repaired one that wouldn't dispense any ice and when i pushed in the lever there wasn't any clicking sound so i knew the micro switch was bad,also you can try unplugging the machine or kill the power at the fuse box if it's easier and leave the power off for like 5 to 10 minutes and see if it resets the board.also when the power is back on you can try pushing on the buttons to see if you can unstick the button but i'd hate to see you just buy the board and it's not the problem,you can also smell the board and look at it for any burn marks and like i say if the board is bad alot of times you can smell an electric smell,hope this helps you out and good luck with your machine

Icemaker will not stop dispensing ice

Can you confirm please does it dispense water by itself if you select water? have you tried lifting the ice maker stop lever by hand? At a guess from your fault description I'd say you need a new dispenser micro switch. at worst a new Ice maker unit inside freezer. cheers

Ice despenser won't sut off.

hi ggammon the dispenser is activated by the paddle that you place your glass against,then touching a micro switch .so i'd say you've got somthing amiss there and i would think only eyes on the ground can see what that is.i just said a prayer for you and you'll have to go back in Gods service,tom

GS6SHEXMLoo side by side ice dispenser not working

On advice from the tech I removed acess door. It was covered by frozen moisture.
I removed the motor it was full of water. I verified 120 volts at plug to motor from control
by depressing the door switch and ice dispenser lever at same time. The motor ohms out
but because of amount of water removed from it I am going to replace it and see what happens.

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!
