Question about Maytag MSD2756G Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a kitchenaid kscs25ftss02. Yesterday I changed the filter and was attempting to go through the air purging process by running 3 gallons of water through the filter. As typical the first gallon went moderately fast with some air sputtering. It was late and I didn't abide by the 5 second on 5 second off rule. I stopped and emptied my pitcher and went to do another gallon, again not abiding by the 5 second on and off rule, it dispensed maybe 30 ounces over a very long period of time. I stopped to give it a break and when I came back 10 minutes later the dispenser had stopped dispensing water. The ice dispenses fine and the solenoid clicks when i push the water lever. All the lights and such are on and everything else is working fine. How can I tell what's wrong and more importantly a DIY fix? Thank You. FCG
Water to the ice maker and to the dispenser are turned on and off by a coil on the dual water control valve. Unfortunately these coils cannot remain on for long extended periods of time. If the coils remain on for extended times they heat up and it's very possible that the coil on the water control valve for the dispenser has burned out. I'll get the part number and a description photo for you if you would like. I'm here and available for questions if you need any answers Thank you John Tripp

There is only two things that can cause this problem. One would be the dispencer control board. Part #61003425
The other thing is a stuck or shorted dispencer switch
Since you say that you have already replaced the control, I would have to go with the switch, but in rare cases the new board installed in the dispencer can also be faulty. Some appliance techs will even sell you a used one and tell you it is new. You have to trust your repairman. Good luck to you and I hope this will FixYa. please dont forget to rate me.

I know that it is new but this might be your problem
My fridge is running but not cold enough: Start out with the easy stuff first...make sure the lights go out when you close the door(s), make sure the doors are closing properly and the gaskets are closing fully and not torn. Check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer is working, this fan blows the cold air around. If the fan is not working, possible bad fan motor - check for power to the fan motor and also check the fan switches around the door openings, ( if your fridge has these switches, not all do ). A common problem cropping up in the last several years has been the air damper not opening up and allowing the cold air from the freezer to be blown into the fresh food section ( mostly on SxS refrigerators ). For many years the air damper was manually operated and now we have motorized controlled or temperature controlled or thermister and electronic boards controlling air dampers, and if this device sticks closed the FF section will normally warm up. An example picture of "one" style and an air damper ( called a diffuser by Whirlpool ). Next would be to check the condenser tubing, a good place to start is to make sure the condenser coils are not built up with dust!! Make sure the condenser fan motor is also working properly. Check for any "clicking on and off" noises from the compressor, is the compressor running.
The most common fridge "not cooling" problem is a frost free failure. Remove the access panel in the freezer section to expose the evaporator coils. If the coils in the freezer section get plugged up with frost, this frost will block the evaporator fan motor from blowing the cold air around. The fan blade can also hit this frost and either become noisy or stop altogether. Locating the defrost timer can be tricky....they are often hidden behind the back bottom corners of the fridge at the bottom, in the last few years the timers have been located in the ceiling of the fresh food section, and some behind the cold control cover. Once you locate the defrost timer, slowly turn the screw like wheel in the middle of the defrost timer with a straight screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. You are now in defrost. If the defrost heater(s) comes on now, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater(s) does not come on, you can ohm test the defrost heater for continuity or volt test for 120 volts to the heater(s). If you have no power to the defrost heater(s) you can also bypass the defrost thermostat to see if the defrost heater will come on, join the 2 wires together to bypass the defrost thermostat. If the heater now comes on, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad, defrost the fridge with a hair dryer, replace the defrost heater* and defrost thermostat. If the defrost timer seems "hot" to the touch or is noisy ( like a ticking or screeching noise )...replace it.
Since it is new, you should have a warranty and I would see if a repairman can check it free of charge before attempting anything, I don't know your skill level with this type of machine but good luck and don't forget to rate this post, Have a Great Day!

Welcome to the computer world. When depressed, the paddle actuates a switch attached to the bracket above. The switch sends a low voltage signal to a small circuit board mouted right behind the display. A computer chip on that small board communicates with another chip on the main control board mounted in the rear wall. Your situation could be a bad actuator switch, a broken paddle tab, possibly a bad door switch (the fresh food doors must be closed to dispense), or a bad electronic control.

Bad main control sits on the back of the refrigerator about half way up on the left metal cover. Part number 12920710 double check against model before buying runs $170.
