Ice dispenser paddle hard to push

We have a stainless Frigidaire side by side, 3 years old. The paddle that releases ice from the door is suddenly very hard to push. Something has changed. I can push it and get ice--my kids have to struggle a bit. I'm mainly concerned about that paddle breaking before the problem gets fixed. Any ideas??

I know it's been a whle, but I recently had hensame problem. Unable to find an answer I decided to pull it apart. After removing the water/ice dispenser panel I noticed there was a spring loaded rod which held the ice flap in position. The rod had worked itself loose from one end and was causing the problem. I realigned the rod with the hole in the bracket and gently tapped it back into place. After re installing the panel everything was back to normal. You can find some decent tear down videos on Youtube explaining the panel removal. Hope this helps if anyone else runs into this problem. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=0Tmpt63T79M&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D0Tmpt63T79M

Frigidaire GLRSF266J side by side makes ice, but dispenser won't work, what can I do?


The part that holds the switch in the dispenser door may have allowed the paddle to no longer contact the switch correctly. Look for a discolored wire connector under the hinge cover on the freezer door. If it looks all in order the water solenoid located where the water line attaches to the fridge may be bad.

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.

Ice maker dispenses ice without anyone pushing button.


Possible fault with the electrical connector at the bottom of the door as these can corrode or the microswitch behind the paddle has got jammed , try pulling the paddle forward a little . You should hear the switch click when you push the paddle back .
