In door function stopped working

The water and ice dispenser stopped working. I am thinking the pcb has a short, because when the dispenser paddle is depressed the light dims and slowly goes out.

    I change the printed circuit board that is located inside the door. That did not solve the problem. That was an $88 experiment that didn't work. Next there is an access panel in the back I can hear a clicking noise coming from the back some where and the inside refrig light seems to pulse with the clicking noise so I guess that is what I am doing over the holiday weekend.

Samsung model rf4287hars only dispenses water when ice lever depressed


3b662ccb-018c-4390-ab7a-74a2025960df.jpg 3d562c7f-18a6-4fa7-9993-373c8c5d3c7f.jpg 763378c4-5f13-435a-aac3-b67d9041b031.jpg


First photo shows paddle assembly that can be purchased you need to got to Sears web site to find part # other wise you will have to buy the whole circuit board assembly hundreds more than the paddle assembly. The circuit board and paddle assembly is removed buy removing screw on inside of door and pulling it out be careful it seems strange but it just pops out. The paddle assembly slides on to the circuit board assembly look close and take your time to slide it off I thought I was going to break mine but did not and save me big money.
Second photo shows tab for water dispensing still there.
Third photo show ice dispensing tab broken and missing.
If you leave the assembly plugged in press the micro switch for the ice dispenser and see if it works most likely the tab has broken and is what hits the switch telling the door to open and ice dispensing screw to push ice to the door. Hope this helps

Changed out water valve. not getting water out of dispenser now


Hi,

Check for voltage at the valve when the dispenser paddle is depressed, if you have 110 volt or higher you switch and door is functional. Disconnect the water line under the freezer door and hit the dispenser paddle again. If you have water there then the door is restricted inside the freezer door (most likely ice).
Good Luck

Samsung rf4287hars dispenser not dispensing ice


SAMSUNG RF4282/HARS has a total backwards-double negative on the menu screen ( at least to me ) tho granted, the ice maker is perhaps, lets say, one of the slower cube makers I have ever seen... it has a setting that is .... "Ice Making OFF".... with the option ON/OFF.... make sure that setting is set to OFF if u want ice, or non Orange on the ON screen, or no ice will be made... It could have been worded much better... ie: "Turn Ice Making Off" with option yes or no... but no... My mind says...Make Ice, have options yes or no = just that....if I select YES ... ice making should be on.... not with Samsung... Kinda should go with the other setup settings that Samsung has..... simple yes/no
Words are.... ( selection )
"Ice Making OFF" setting should be set to OFF... just to do that... you are turning the shut down mode OFF and u will be making ice ( you are turning the shut down ice making function OFF in common terms)
As expensive as this machine is.... It should be easier and programing should restore after a power flux.... anyone wanting a lot of ice... forget this machine... we continue to purchase bagged ice and keep it in the freezer in the garage, it can\'t keep up on a daily basis.... I continually have to re-enter my WIFI passcode at every power outage... ( sometimes a lot in summer with storms )
My wife wanted it.... steel look.... she now finds she hates keeping it clean... NEVER AGAIN.... Samsung has some great products, but we have to suck up on this one... never again

Water and ice dispenser stopped working


You will need to replace the dispenser control board on the door. Here is the part to order.

Ice dispenser stuck on


Either the paddle for the ice/water dispenser is stuck or you have a bad microswitch behind the dispenser.
To stop the ice/water from dispensing open the freezer door and press or hold the child lock button down. Once the unit is in child lock mode you can shut the door without energizing the dispenser.
Another option is to remove the upper freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the wire connector up there. This will remove voltage from the dispenser as well. Then either replace the paddle or switch. Sometimes the paddles/switches will get stuck because of splash up from ice dropping in sugary drinks.

Ice and water dispenser stopped working


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.

Ice maker dispenses ice without anyone pushing button.


Possible fault with the electrical connector at the bottom of the door as these can corrode or the microswitch behind the paddle has got jammed , try pulling the paddle forward a little . You should hear the switch click when you push the paddle back .

Ice and water dispensers not working


I don't think that you need to replace the hole door unless something is physically wrong with it. Could be a lot of things one is the limit switch (number 14)->

http://www.us1internet.com/GC5SHGXLS00_66388.htm

if for some reason the limit switch is not working properly then the paddle never send the signal to the valve to dispense. The same thing is for the auger motor (the one that dispense Ice).

If you see your dispenser under the paddles and activate the paddles you can see when the paddle touches the limit switch. You should hear a click. Also could be the switch pack (#18 in the drawing) that is short circuited. But this is most complicated to resolve, not impossible, but you need the schematics of the switch pack to check continuity, if you don't know a electrical technician can do the job. Also he can check the harness to check for continuity. The harness inside the door send the signal to the board to actuate the valve or to move the auger motor that send the ice.

Maybe the repair man tought that you need to remove the door because for example... LG foam the harness inside the door but Whirlpool use a conduit in the foaming process and when the door is already foamed they put the harness inside the conduit that is why you don't need to remove the door.

Also could be the valve... your ice maker is making ice?

Psc23sgrd ss ice/water dispenser not working


It is possible. When you put hit your glass against the paddle to you hear the switch click? And can you still select between water, cubed, and crushed ice? Also does the light by your glass come on when you but your glass against the paddle?

When you put your glass on the paddle it pushes in a microswitch. That microswitch will power the light if it is working and also sends power to the board you are talking about to dispense ice or water depending on what you have selected.
