Ge profile ice/water interface buttons cracked

I need to replace the plastic button panel (where you push water, ice, crushed ice, etc. buttons). My kids pushed on the buttons to hard and they have cracked. The buttons still work, but are cracked open. Can I order a simple interface screen without replacing the whole control panel?

SOURCE: GE TFX27PFS Always makes crushed ice.

The crushed ice sounds like the solenoid in the back of the freezer may be frozen and moving the mechanism (rod) even though you can move it by hand. Take a hair dryer and heat the area where the ice bin rod fits into in order to thaw the solenoid out. You can take the whole thing apart and put a little petrolium jelly on the shaft to keep it from freezing and sticking again if you have the tools. The door alarm may be the door out of adjustment... hold the light switch down and see if that stops the alarm, if it does you can always glue an extension piece on the switch in order to reach the door again vice adjusting the door. Some of these models were very close to being out of adjustment and a few years of wear on the hinges could do that. I've even seen someone glue an extension on the door so it would press the switch better on closing. As for the water leaking, is it continuous leak or say every 12 hours you notice a little bit of water? Continuous leak is likely a solenoid valve letting water by, small leak every 12 hours or so usually means the defrost drain line is clogged and the defrost water is not making it to the holding pan but leaking out the freezer compartment instead.

SOURCE: GE Profile Refrigerator Ice/Water dispenser not working

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.

SOURCE: Replace fron control panel TFX27PF SA WW

Hi, if there are no screws in the underside of the bottom edge of the control panel, you should see two little lots in the underside of the bottom edge. Just use a flat blade screw driver and insert it into the slot. Twist the screws driver and the control panel should release.
I hope this helps you. please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: ice maker not dispensing ice

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 .

SOURCE: ge gss fridge,ice dispenser problem.

You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. The crush position is without the solenoid energized. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid


Your solenoid is part 45 and the linkage to the crusher is 46. The crusher is 41 on this diagram and parts list. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5150332&diagram_id=1239793#d1239793

My GE Adora side by side will only dispense crushed ice...the buttons seem to be working, as in the light comes on each button when pushed. But only crushed ice!


Turn off icemaker. Remove ice bin, empty it, rinse with warm water and leave to dry overnight.
If this did not help - check solenoid in the freezer behind the ice bin, make sure it's not stuck and has continuity. If all checked out ok, but still no cubed ice - control board or interface board may need replacement, and you'll need a professional to diagnose that.

Good luck,

GE Profile Ice flap is broken


The part number you need is WR62X10055 . This is the sokenoid and plunger which operates the flap . They tend to rust badly , keeping the flap from opening/closing . With a small screwdriver , pry the control panel ( from the bottom only ) outwards . This panel is the push buttons for crush , cube , water . Once removed , there are 4 screws , one on each corner of the white housing . Unplug the 3 plugs on the control panel first . Remove the 4 screws and slide out the housing . The solenoid and plunger are at the top right , held on by 3 screws . Replace solenoid AND plunger , and reassemble in reverse . Also , remove the top freezer door hinge cover to access the plug which should be unplugged first . After reassembling dispensor , dont forget to plug the plug back in .

Ge pss26sgrc ss ice/water dispenser


Take the outer frame off the dispenser area with a plastic putty knife. Start at the bottom and gently pry off, trying not to snap off plastic tabs that extend into door. Most likely you will have to replace the "interface" (part # WR55X10415) It is the small board where you select water / crushed ice / cubed ice. Relatively easy to replace. good luck.

If this helps, please rate response. Thanks.
