After the power went out on our block...the panel on the front of the icemaker and water dispenser only has the top of one of the lights illuminated...the water dispenser works but the ice dispenser d

After a power outage our block experienced and the power came back on, the control panel on the front of the refrigerator is not working at all. None of the light are lit up ..the ice despenser does not work but the water dispenser does. I don't think the motor is running either...but the light is on when you open the refrigerator side of the unit. What is the problem and how can I resolve it? Thank you

Unplug the power cord for a couple of minutes, and see if it resets itself do you hear the fan running, is it cooling and the freezer is keeping cold temp if, if it doesnt reset you could have a bad control board

Whilst I have never worked on one of these specific units, from your description of the symptoms and circumstances it is very probable that the power supply that runs the control panel has not survived the surge that often accompanies the return of power after a blackout. Most likely failure will be any mains fuse or surge limiting resistor fitted in line with the mains feeding the supply. If you are very unlucky, the power supply itself may well have failed, but this is highly unlikely.
Either way though you're going to need an experienced electronics tech to take a look at the unit for you. This is one of those awkward situations where a refrigeration mechanic would have no idea how to service the electronics, while many electronics techs would be very wary about pulling apart an unfamiliar piece of equipment like a fridge. Your best bet would be to call a firm who have experience in both white-goods (appliance) and brown-goods (electronics) servicing where you will have the best hope of getting a serviceperson who is across both disciplines. Then again if you have the necessary skills yourself to tackle it, you could try checking out the supply lines to the control board, but do this only if you have tons of experience in working with mains powered equipment!

SOUNDS TO ME THE TRANSPORT AUGER MOTOR NEEDS REPLACEMENT. JUST MAKE SURE THAT ON THE CONTROL PANEL, THE CHILD INTERLOCK IS NOT ON WHICH STOPS ICE DISPENSING OPERATION. JUST DONE ONE NOW WITH THE EXACT FAULT.

How do i fix ice maker


Could be 2 different problems. Inlet water valve is a dual valve (2 halves). 1 half feeds water to the door dispenser, the other half fills the icemaker. The icemaker half could be bad or blocked up with sediment causing a no fill situation. 2nd problem could be the icemaker itself which sends power to the inlet valve when it needs filled. Usually the inlet valve fails first but you need to test and see.

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.

Water dispenser not working


!!BE CAREFUL!! High Voltage.
Try applying power to the solenoid for the water tap. Should be two of them one for the ice maker and one for the water dispenser. They will usually be mounted in the rear bottom on the other side of where the water supply line is connected. 25269512-pjjowy2zt3xf3430cawieg0f-2-0.jpg
Example ^^. If it triggers put a meter on it to see if it energizes when you press the water dispense button.

Frigidaire FRS26ZSH -ice & water dispenser panel lost power


I think you will need to unplug the pin plug under the cover at top or bottom hinge. Check the voltage and if OK leave unplugged until you can remove the dispenser and I will try to help you from the power source. Sounds like a short in the board and related to the light socket. The fuse only stopped the short from doing further damage, You may need to locate the short before replacing the fuse or board. I have looked over the wiring diagram. If you find the short without my help just be sure to replace the fuse with the correct size. The only things are the chute heater or something in that area of the board went to ground. Do you have a voltage meter? Contact me later when ready, Sea Breeze

Icemaker stopped working


You will have to determine whether the problem is due to no water getting to the icemaker or a control problem in the icemaker unit.

There is a water valve near the bottom of the refrigerator where water from the outside source enters the refrigerator. This valve sends water to the icemaker (and probably the water dispenser) when the refrigerator controls call for water. These valves can malfunction, and the water lines can get blocked.

The other possibility is that something inside the icemaker controls has malfunctioned, and it is not calling for water.

Water leaking from icemaker on outside


If this is your water dispenser leaking
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

No water dispensing to the icemaker. Water does dispense through the door dispenser. KitchenAid ksbs25fkbl00


Unplug your refrigerator and leave the freezer door open for 2 hours (The food in the freezer will only partially thaw).

The line supplying the water to the ice maker has frozen...this will un-thaw it.
