Question about Refrigerators
A few weeks back i noticed my water and ice dispenser on my refrigerator was not working. Now the water is working and it is making ice, but not dispensing any. When i push down on the lever the light dims and it seems to shut off almost. When i let up on the lever the light seems to come on stronger and it sounds like something is starting like a fan. I have GE coming this thursday but would like to try to fix it myself before. BTW the ice door opens when you press on lever. It seems like the arm in the back will not turn. Thanks, Debbie
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!

My fridge is only a couple of years old, not making ice (or even hearing any sound when lever is pushed in); now the freezer isn't freezing things, just keeping them cold and fridge doesn't seem to be as cold as it should....help...

Hey Deb, the first thing I would check is the Ice dispensor bin is blocked. If you have water and ice but the ice is not dispensing, that is the first thing I have my clients check. all it will cost you is the ice in the bin. once you empty the bin just use hot water to melt any ice that is jammed drier with a paper towel and re instal. if it is more than that the GE tech should catch it.
