SOURCE: Skybox won't dispense anything

check the door where the cans come out. there is a sensor or the left side. if it is too far away from the door or if it's broken, it will do exactly what you said. i read somewhere that you can adjust the sensor closer to the door. i just bought one of the last one of these on the shelves 2 days ago and mine won't cool at all. stupid maytag..

I have a Matag MSD2458GE refrigerator. Water dispenser on the door works but, the ice maker doesn't work at all. Seems no water reaching it. Needs new filter, but no ice before replace filter light.


According to your user's manual, "If water flow to the ice maker or dispenser decidedly decreases or if an objectionable taste or
odor returns,change the filter sooner than
recommended."
"Leave the refrigerator door open while removing and installing filters or plugs; this will prevent water
from flowing through the system and running into
the fresh food compartment.
• A newly installed water filter cartridge may cause
water to temporarily spurt from the dispenser"
Automatic ice maker not operating
the stop arm in OFF (up) position
•the water supply turned off
•the water pressure too low
•the freezer too warm
Ice dispenser not operating
ice jam in the dispenser
•ice maker not operating
• lock switch on (see page 11)

No water from dispenser Matag New filter solenoid valve working, tube to dispenser seems to be blocked


Hello Hans;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There could be several areas that would effect your water dispenser not working:

1.) When you depress the water dispenser do you hear a 'Click'? If not you have a bad water dispenser contact switch.
I would send you a diagram but I do not have your model number.

2.) In the lower back of your fresh food section is your water dispenser water tank. At times this can freeze near the freezer section. Look in the lower corner of the freezer & your fresh food section for ice build-up.

3.) You could have a bad water filter. This does happen often. Remove the water filter and test you water dispenser.

4.) Do you have water leaking out of the bottom of your dispenser door? If so you have a split in the tubing in your water dispenser door.

5.) Is your ice maker working? Often the water valve to your refrigerator becomes plugged up and you do not get sufficient water pressure 60 PSI to operate your water dispenser solenoid valve.

Hi Alan,
You need to check the wires on the back of the dispenser console to be sure that they are seated correctly. If the wires are all OK, you will need to replace the display console. Here is the part to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Lock out light is on ice and water dispenser of whirlpool GS5SHAXSB01 refrigerator and will not turn off. Is there a bypass?


Had the same problem. I slid out the tray at the bottom of the dispenser, removed two screws, took off the face with all the buttons on it to expose the wiring. I disconnected the very thin wire harness that supplies power to the buttons and reconnected it. I reinstalled the face, pushed and held the lock out button. This worked for me.

My 7-button Frigidaire Gallery ice/water module is not lighting up and not functioning. No ice or water is being dispensed. Wiring harnesses seem to be all intact.


Hi

If freezer door switch is not working, dispenser won't work. Does the freezer light go off & on when door is opened & closed? If you have a voltmeter, check that water valve is getting 120 volts when dispenser is pushed in. If no voltage, I would suspect the micro-switch that you hear clicking when you push in with a glass. Even though it clicks, the contacts could still be bad in it. However other than that loose/off wire, ribbon cable for front buttons off/loose, bad board, child lock are something that can make the dispenser dead.

Please check the bellow link if it helps:-

The inside water spout on this refrigerator stopped dispensing water


Checckwater pressure.The 1/4" water supply line should deliver at least 9 ounces of water in 5 seconds. If not, the water pressure is low. Make sure the dispenser is notlocked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser andcontrol buttons. The lock button is located on the dispenser front cover.This feature controls unintentional dispensing. Press the"Unlock" or "Locked" button to reactivate the dispenser andallow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for2 to 3 seconds. A clogged or incorrectly installedwater filter will reduce the water flow to the water dispenser. Check for aproblem with the filter by removing the filter and operating the dispenser. Ifwater begins to flow, then the filter is either clogged or incorrectlyinstalled. A clogged filter will need to be replaced. Thanks.

No ice or water from GE Profile side by side refrigerator freeze


I had this problem and did 3 things to correct it:

1st: I changed out the Main Circuit Board in the back of the fridge.... very easy to do, but that wasn't the problem.

2nd: I changed out the Dispenser Circuit board, which is behind the touch panel. Also very easy to do, just snaps out. but that also wasn't the problem

3rd: I checked the wire harness connection point located behind the grill at the bottom front of the fridge underneath the freezer side. This is also very easy to do, and son of a ..... that is what is was. Moister from mopping the floor had started to corrode the connections. So I purchases a cheap 3 wire plug and cut out the old and spliced in the new. You don’t actually need the plug, you can hard wire direct but if you ever have to take the door off you will have to cut the wires.

So now I’m the proud owner of an extra functioning Main Circuit Board and Dispenser Circuit board if anyone is in need.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.
