Question about Refrigerators
I have a 2 yr refrigerator that makes ice, but when you push the ice dispenser the light dims and neither crushed or cube ice comes out. the water will dispense but no ice. The dim light with gradually get brighter as it would normally if it was dispensing ice. Any idea as to what the problem would be?
Your problems are the power board for sure. I have the same refrigerator and have read dozens of forums and advise pages looking for answers. If you let the problem countinue your fridge will completely stop cooling and all your food will be trash as has happened to me.
Symptoms: Fan in the back starts to make click or flopping sound as it tries to start up. Ice despenser doesent despense ice. water works sometimes. Eventually you notice your food defrosting partially and then refreezing as the defrost timer stops working which is controlled by the power board. Light dims and pulses when you hold the Ice despencer in. If you remove the light for the dispencer your water will work fine as long as the fan isnt making the clicking noise. Fan will eventually start up and run.
FYI GE customer Care is useless

I have the problem with my water not dispensing but the ice does. What I've found works is this: Dump all ice into a container and put into freezer. Take out the icemaker and let it sit out in the sink overnight (at least 12 hours). Put it back into the freezer and then the water will dispense again. I think that the water line freezes up on it. I guess you could try the same thing for the icemaker not working. My icemaker also continues to make ice when full so I just turn it on for a day and then turn it off until I need more ice.

Howabout try to check to see if something is stick in the ice dispensing shoot. This will cause nothing to dispense and will get have a dim light.
