Water Dispenser for Frigidaire

Hi, I followed all of the instructions for replacing the paddle on my water dispenser, however, the control wire came off of the front portion of the refrigerator (the part that must be removed in order to access the water paddle.  I have tried to reattach the wire and it won't seem to stay.  I put everything back together just to see and now neither the ice maker nor the water works.  Any suggestions would be helpful!   Thanks!

Everything normal on my GE Profile Model PFSF6PKWBBB French door bottom freezer refridgerator except the water dispenser just quit dispensing water. Is it frozen? How do I fix it?

The paddle that you push the glass against to dispense water activates a microswitch. Sometimes this switch can break off it's mount and drop away from it's intended position. The microswitch operates a solenoid valve near where the water line enters the back of the fridge. Then there's the wiring in between them. The water line doesn't go through the freezer. It runs through the refrigerator in a coil of tubing then into the door of the dispenser. Check the paddle switch, the water solenoid and the wiring and you'll find the reason it doesn't work

Frigidaire GLRSF266J side by side makes ice, but dispenser won't work, what can I do?

The part that holds the switch in the dispenser door may have allowed the paddle to no longer contact the switch correctly. Look for a discolored wire connector under the hinge cover on the freezer door. If it looks all in order the water solenoid located where the water line attaches to the fridge may be bad.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know how to replace the water dispenser paddle in your Electrolux refrigerator, model# E23CS786SS1. Typically, this is not a di it yourself repair, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your appliance and should be able to replace the dispenser paddle with ease. Hope this is helpful.

I have a Frigidaire model number PLHS67EESB9 side by side refrigerator. About 4 months, I has the water dispenser paddle replaced by a trained technician. Recently, the when the freezer door was opened...

Start by looking at the circuit boards for any sign of cracks or a trace coming off the board. Also, check all the ribbon wires for any signs of a break, corrosion, and so on. As soon as my database comes back online I will look to see if I have a service manual for that unit and any test procedures that you may do. Also, look at the door switch for any shorts or wire breakage. Post back any results to me.

First ... your model number is missing some on the end. please check your model number on the machine for the correct lookup of parts.

this should be close to your model of fridge but you will half to make sure.

and yes you should just replace the bad switch.
Part numbers for the switches for this model # are 218479900 & 241689101

Water Actuator is broken.

I had the same problem with my water dispenser and since they were willing to sell me a part but provided no directions and I couldn't locate any I decided to make my own for those who might need them. Here is a link to a PDF I made, hope it helps.

Before starting this job I would also like to warn all to please be save and UNPLUG the fridge. The whole job took me less then 30 minutes and I doubt anything will go bad in that amount of time.
