HI. These symptoms are a strong indication of a malfunctioning activation switch. This switch is part of the dispenser circuit board. Try to reset the board by unplugging the unit for 3 minutes. Once the three minutes have passed, simply plug the unit into the power socket, once more. If this erratic switch action persist, you will need to replace the dispenser board switch, or board.

Hello David ,

Their are a few possible reason the ice is not being dispensed,

1) the door switch is bad...the door must be closed for the ice to dispense and perhaps the switch thinks the door is open

2) the switch that is activated when pushing the lever on the dispenser is bad

3) the dispenser motor is bad

4) the control board is bad

The outside door water does not work


Can I assume the ice and water are activated by two different switches? The ice switch activates the motor that dispenses ice. The water switch activates a solenoid that opens to dispense water. If you can, find the solenoid and make sure it's not stuck closed (tapping it with a screwdriver handles usually help persuade it a bit). I would tap the solenoid while pushing the water button. Listen for the solenoid to activate. If you can't activate the solenoid, find the switch and depress it with a small screwdriver. Usually, these switches are just simple little microswitches that need a little cleaning and coaxing

Refrigerator in-door water dispenser fails to work


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

For your situation I found this model number # FRS22ZRHD1. Take a look at this picture of this models dispensor.
there are 3 switches # QT 2 -- 38a & 38b

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 dispencer in fridge not working nut ice


Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws.
If that's not it disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad.

Water dispensing by itself without anyone touching the dispenser!


Reverse the wires you took off the solenoid, I think you have the icemaker wires on the water disp side and the water disp on the icemaker

After using the water dispenser on my side by side ED20DF the water keeps on dripping? I've turned the water off for now, but I need to know how to fix it. Help??? Thanks


Could be couple of thing, but I think that first you need to check the connector. You open your refrigerator from both sides and then pull out the grille (don't worry it won't break) then if you see at your left there's a connector that put together a 5/16 water tube with a 1/4 water tube, try to fit both water tubes in the connector, maybe one of those is loose and that's the why of the dripping.

The other thing may be is with the mechanical-electrical interface, when you press the paddle, is you see the activation under the dispenser, it touches with a limit switch, maybe the limit switch is stuck with something when you activate or it is not working properly.

Also if you have a multimeter check the valve to see if it's not a problem with the signal that is coming to the valve, I mean if the problem is that even without press the paddle the dispenser start to dispense water.

Ice maker water dispenser is stuck in the on position


The problem is fixed. I think the drinking cup jarred the push bar activator, causing it to be stuck in the on position. After pushing this activator, it cleared the problem. Thanks for your follow up.

No water


MORE LIKELY TO BE BLOCKED OR A KINKED PIPE AT BASE OF DOOR, WHEN YOU ACTIVATE THE VALVE THE WATER FLOWS STRAIGHTOUT OF THE DISPENSOR SO THE MUST BE A PROBLEM IN THE DOOR AREA. REGARDS DVISOR
