Question about Refrigerators
Posted by Anonymous on
Without knowing what make / model fridge it is nearly impossible to say , however, most domestic fridge have a water tank in the base of the food compartment which stores the water before going into the freezer dispenser. Have a look behind the crisper drawers for it. If the food compartment is too cold, this tank can freeze up and stop water from going into the dispenser. Is it still making ice? If so, the water valve which is normally 2 parts (1 for ice making and the other for water dispensing) may have failed.

Oakescreek, start with simple things first. Check the freezer door light interlock switch. This has to be closed to send power to the dispenser. If that is working ok, check the harness coming from the bottom of the freezer door for cracked or split wires. Check the harness plug itself to make sure it is completely connected. If these things check out ok, we will need to verify that we are getting voltage to the dispenser selection switch. If we are and it is still not operating..then I would suspect that to be the problem. I'll keep and eye peeled for a reply. Catriver.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

You tell us about this board or that board but never tell us where to located or get at these boards. Would you please clarify that?
My ice and water started dispensing sporadically, though the lights were working fine. After I removed the kick board at the bottom, cleaned out the little connector and put it back together, nothing on the door works. All else works fine.

I had to pull the J3 connector off of the control module located just behind the dispenser panel. That eliminated the cycling and the flashing lights. Maytag guy came out and told me there is a control board located on the back of the refrigerator. Circuit board cost is $180 and installation labor another $300. I think because the refrigerator and freezer are still functional I will not repair this problem at this time.
