    The complete model number is GLRS264ZAW1. I will check on the water issue that you mentioned as well as the diode and get back to you. Thanks for the response. Peteorpete

    You asked if water filled the icemaker when using the door dispenser and it does not. It only happens the other direction, comes out the dispenser when water is filling the icemaker. The diode has been replaced but I continue to have the problem. Any other suggestions. Do you think it's the water valve?

    Thanks so much for your help.

    I'll try that next, thanks.

    I had a Technician check the valves and he said while the problem was actually happening he was getting 110 volts to the icemaker valve and 15.7 volts to the door valve. Is this normal? Do you think the replacement diode could have been bad when it was installed? Thanks, Peteorpete

    Also, can the diode be tested to see if it's bad?

    Do you know of a way to test the diode?

    My side by side model makes loud clicking noise, sounds like a woodpecker off and on. In looking at owners manual it states that the Cold Control & Automatic Defrost Control can make this sound.
    Is this a repair I can make myself by replacing this control?

    Am I on the right track or is something else making this sound.

    Please advise

I need the entire model # from the sticker inside the fridge section. My guess is this is the model that has a diode in the wiring harness that directs power to the valves and has gone bad letting power go to both valves. I would look and see if you also have water going into the icemaker when you press for water out of the dispenser. If there is no diode then the water valve is bad. I need the model # so I can look at a wiring diagram. You can look at the wiring to the water valve and see if it has a diode. It is black block and has two wires in one end and one out the other. If so the diode only can be bought and spliced in. Let me know so I can help.

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.


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.

yes where thr water go\es into the ice maker is where the problem lies, take the ice maker out and then you'll see the tuding where the water goes into the ice maker. Then take a hair drier or a shop vac reversed and thae out the utde and the water will flow after it is thawed.
